Did You Know?


The bar keeper in the saloon is named Elkins. In season one, Daniel Elkins possesses the colt. It's likely that The bar keep is an ancestor of Daniel Elkins, and the colt remained in the Elkins family until the vampires took it from Daniel. See more »

Elkins: What'll you have?
Dean Winchester: Well, okay, great. I'll have your top-shelf whiskey.

The Magnificent Dean
21 May 2019 | by rich-foutsSee all my reviews

Ackles has such great comedic timing. He's nothing short of genius in this wonderful episode that pays homage to classic westerns. Terrific performances by Sam Hennings (Samuel Colt) and Stephen Bradley Jones (demon cowboy). Terrific sound track by Jay Gruska! Best music ever and fantastic ending This is one episode I will watch again and again. Masterpiece.

Season 6 will definitely be remembered for great comedy.
