  • Sam and Dean try to take down the Hook man...with a greek life twist.

    What makes these episodes so fun to watch is how it takes all of these urban legends that we've told each other to our friends at campfires and sleepovers, and turn it into a tangible episode. Here we take the legend of the Hook man and insert it in the Supernatural episodic formula; opens up with a murder, Dean and Sam drive very far away just to get to the scene, another murder happens that brings them closer to the suspect, and then a showdown with the supernatural being. As a bit predictable as Supernatural has been getting, it's all about the supernatural itself that makes it such an intriguing watch. All the stuff about folklore, urban legends, and seeing how the brothers find a way to tackle it down. Here it definitely achieves that, and once again we are given a very good episode watch.
