Did You Know?


The setting of the fire to the church in 1963 that killed the children inside during their choir practice may be an allusion to the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing that occurred in 1963 in Birmingham, Alabama, killing 4 of the 5 children inside during choir practice. See more »


In the opening sequence, when the Ford skids to a stop in front of the truck, the camera pans down to a shot looking through the cab from the bed of the truck. In the next shot the truck is racing off after the Ford again, and you can clearly see the camera crew in the left side of the truck bed. See more »


Mrs. Robinson: Cyrus Dorian died more than forty years ago.
Dean Winchester: How do you know he died, Mrs. Robinson? The paper said he went missing. How do you know he died?
Mrs. Robinson: We were all very young. I dated Cyrus awhile. I, I was also seeing Martin, in secret of course, because, interracial couples didn't go over too well then. When I broke it off with Cyrus, and when he found out about Martin... I don't know, he, he changed. His, his hatred. His hatred was frightening.
Sam Winchester: The string of murders.
Mrs. Robinson: There were rumors. People of color...

This is probably my least favorite episode. I lived in Cape Girardeau for quite some time. I can tell you there is no ocean or shrimp boats, fresh crab or scallops anywhere near Missouri. Cape Girardeau is the only inland Cape, it's on the Mississippi River. It looked like the license plates were from Mississippi, which may explain why there was so much racial tension. Missouri and Mississippi are 2 completely different states that don't touch one another. There are many roads in and out of town and none of them are Route 6 or Route 666. This whole inaccuracy was very distracting. Also, Cassie did not seem like someone who would want to hang around Dean if she was well educated. I did not buy them as a couple and didn't enjoy the lengthy love scene. Jo was more Dean's style.
