    "The Deal" is just another story about a man selling his soul to the devil to get something he can't get by himself. The basic plot of this story has been done so many times and on so many other TV series, but this episode is able to carry itself well and doesn't fall into every cliche that you would expect. The actor who plays the devil in the story is amusing and the most entertaining part. The end of the episode is also pretty good and a nice twist. What happens at the end isn't too predictable, so this episode is still enjoyable.moreless
