A young couple is murdered in their home shortly after buying an antique painting of a family portrait circa 1910. Upon reviewing the painting's provenance, Sam and Dean learn that everyone who has ever bought the painting has been murdered and race to discover how the portrait is causing the deaths before it can claim its next victim.
Did You Know?
Sam references the book The Da Vinci Code, written by Dan Brown, when Dean suggests there's possible hidden clues in the cursed painting. Dean doesn't understand what Sam means and says he's "still waiting for the movie on that one." The Da Vinci Code (2006) premiered in theaters a month after this episode aired. See more
When Sam, Dean, and Sarah Blake examine the cursed painting after the second murder, Dean notices the razor has moved and says "Jared, check it out" - using actor Jared Padalecki's real name instead of his character's name. It is difficult to completely ascertain if Jensen is, indeed, saying "Jared" instead of Sam because Jensen is mumbling a bit. However, the box set of Season 1 and Netflix both have the subtitles set to "Sam, check it out." See more
