Storyline

Sam and Dean are contacted by one Adam Milligan who claims to be John Winchester's son. The boys immediately suspect a demon trap and go to investigate. Adam turns out to legitimately be John's son and Dean is furious that John kept Adam's existence from them as well as sheltered Adam from the hunting life. Meanwhile other supernatural forces are at work, which lead to a tragic twist that neither Sam, Dean, or their new sibling could have guessed. Written by Livy

I wish Adam was included more
12 March 2020 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

Re-watching this and seeing the Adam episode in season 15 makes me regret that they didn't do more with the other brother dynamic. This episode is really fun in how it upsets the the Winchester two hander and I think the material could have been mined for more pathos and laughs. Abel is the perfect guy to cast as the other Winchester and despite being in only a few episodes the character stays with you.

I simply ADORE the subversion of monster and family with the ghouls here. This blurring of the line between the two categories not only works for Sam's arch but sets up the 6th season more than people realize. The film's humanistic viewpoint comes through strongest when it blurs types like this.
