TEASER

INT. BEDROOM - NIGHT

Door opens, and a woman and man dressed in formal (JANET and PAUL DUTTON) attire walk in, the man switches on the bedroom light as the woman tosses her purse on the bed.

JANET
That was just a terrible, terrible party.

PAUL
But there was this one really beautiful woman there.

JANET
You should have gone home with her.

PAUL
I did

They kiss, and he unzips her dress. It falls to the floor.

Alright, there's a bottle of '89 in the fridge.

They kiss and he walks out the door as she crosses the room and enters the bathroom.


INT. AMANDA'S ROOM - NIGHT

A match is struck on the edge of a box as an incantation is being recited which runs through the rest of the action as a voiceover.

END OF TEASER

ACT ONE

INT. DUTTON BEDROOM - DAY

DEAN is questioning PAUL about JANET and SAM is searching the bathroom for clues as to what happened.

PAUL
She was so scared. I couldn't help; I couldn't do anything to stop it. And I've talked to the police, and I've talked to the medical examiner and no one can explain it.

DEAN
Well that's why they put the call in to us Mr. Dutton.

PAUL
But the CDC, that's disease control right? What do you think; it's some kind of virus?


INT. BATHROOM - DAY

SAM closes the door to the bathroom and looks more thoroughly through things.

DEAN (V.O.)
We're not ruling out anything yet. Mr. Dutton did Janet have any enemies?

PAUL (V.O.)
I'm sorry?


INT. BEDROOM

DEAN
Anyone that might have a reason to hurt her?

PAUL
Wait, what are you saying? That somebody poisoned her?


INT. BATHROOM SAM looks under the sink in the bathroom and finds the hex bag that was left there by AMANDA. The questioning continues in the bedroom.

DEAN (V.O.)
I'm just saying we have to cover every base here.

PAUL (V.O)
Well, I mean, what kind of poison? You think a person could have done this?

DEAN (V.O.)
Would anyone want to?


INT. BEDROOM

PAUL
What?! No, no, there's just no one that could've-

SAM opens the bathroom door.

DEAN
Mr. Dutton?

PAUL
Uh, everyone loved Janet.

SAM nods at DEAN so he knows that SAM is done investigating.

DEAN
Okay. Thank you very much; I think we've got everything we need. We'll get out of your way now.


EXT. DUTTON HOUSE - DAY

It's raining as SAM and DEAN walk out of the house toward the Impala.

DEAN
That dude seem a little evasive to you?

SAM
I don't know I was under a sink, pulling this out.

SAM takes the hex bag out of his pocket and hands it to Dean and they both stop as DEAN takes the bag from SAM and opens it.

SAM
Hex bag.

DEAN
Awww gross.

SAM
Yeah, there are bird bones, rabbit's teeth. This cloth is probably cut from something Janet Dutton owned.

DEAN looks back at the house for a second and turns back handing the bag to SAM and walking towards the IMPALA again.

DEAN
So we're thinking witch?

SAM
Uh, yeah, and not some new age wicked water douser either. This is old world black magic Dean, I mean, warts and all.


INT. IMPALA - DAY

DEAN gets in and turns to Sam.

DEAN
I hate witches.

SAM chuckles

DEAN
They're always spewing their bodily fluids everywhere.

SAM
Pretty much.

DEAN
It's creepy, you know, it's down right unsanitary.

SAM
Yeah, well someone definitely had it out for Janet Dutton.

DEAN
Yeah, someone who snuck into that house and planted the bag. So what are we thinking, we're uh, looking for some old craggy blair ***** in the woods.

SAM
No it could be anyone. Neighbor, coworker, man, woman that's the problem Dean, they're human, they're like everyone else.

DEAN
Great how do we find 'em?

SAM
This wasn't random; someone in Janet Dutton's life had an ugly axe to grind. We find the motive-

DEAN
We find the murderer.

SAM
Yeah.

DEAN starts the IMPALA and pulls away from the curb, driving off in the rain.


EXT. AMANDA'S HOUSE

ELIZABETH is tending to her garden as AMANDA pulls into her driveway and gets out of the car. ELIZABETH looks up and tries to get AMANDA's attention.

ELIZABETH
Amanda.

AMANDA is distracted and grabs a grocery bag out of the back seat of her car and starts to walk to her door. We see that she has a bandage on her right hand signifying this is the witch we heard reciting the incantation who cut her hand with the dagger.

ELIZABETH
Hey Amanda!

AMANDA
Oh, Elizabeth hi. Sorry, I've got like a thousand things on my mind.

AMANDA keeps walking toward the door to her house.

ELIZABETH
Are you okay sweetie? You didn't come to book club last night.

AMANDA
Yeah, sorry I was gonna call, I just- I got busy you know? But I'm fine, really, I am.

AMANDA hurries into her house waving her hand behind her at ELIZABETH.


INT. AMANDA'S HOUSE

AMANDA walks into the kitchen and sets down the grocery bag on the counter and goes to the oven opening the door and reaches in to take out a platter with food on it. A buzzing starts in the background and as AMANDA sets the platter on the counter the food can bee seen to be rotten. AMANDA continues to look at the platter as the buzzing intensifies and the camera closes in on the food showing flies, maggots and worms crawling all over the rooting food.


EXT. STREET - NIGHT

PAUL is sitting in his car pulled over on the side of the street and reaches over and turns on the radio. Every Rose Has it's Thorn by Poison starts to play on the radio as he begins to eat a burger.


INT. AMANDA'S HOUSE - NIGHT

The camera pans across the altar in AMANDA's living room showing various occult objects, including a candle, bones and symbols drawn on wood, the same as before. Now she places the platter of rotten food where Janet's toothbrush was and lifts the same dagger she sliced her hand with previously and looks at it.


INT. PAUL DUTTON'S CAR PAUL is chewing the food he has eaten as the song continues. He puts down the burger and goes to check his watch, but his wrist is bare and he looks confused. AMANDA begins the incantation.

AMANDA (V.O.)
Echranmuk madan fiéré marc oh don


INT. AMANDA'S HOUSE

AMANDA places a watch (presumably PAUL's) on the platter with the rotten food and continues her incantation.

AMANDA
Duer kianave kihér tolic einder bolic marc oh don duer kianave. This dinner was cooked for you Paul Arthur Dutton.

AMANDA stabs the dinner with the dagger.

AMANDA
Now you're going to eat it.


INT. PAUL'S CAR

PAUL is chewing and holding his burger as the radio goes static and the song changes to I Put a Spell on You by Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Paul lays down his burger on the passenger seat of his car and maggots fall out onto the wrapper. He reaches and turns off the radio. Picking up his burger again he takes another bite and begins to chew but makes a face and goes to reach in his mouth lifting his burger and looking down at it. He see's it is covered in maggots.

PAUL
Aah, oh!

PAUL puts down the burger as I Put a Spell on You comes back on the radio and he leans forward starting to choke. He opens the door of his car falling out onto the pavement hunched over as DEAN and SAM arrive in the Impala. DEAN runs over to PAUL and yells at SAM:

DEAN
Check the car!

SAM searches under the dashboard and steering column as DEAN tries to help PAUL.

DEAN
Sam!

SAM
Got it!

SAM gets up removing the hex bag he found as DEAN pulls Paul up from the pavement.

DEAN
Come on.

SAM lights the hex bag on fire and drops it to the ground as it glows with blue and green flames.


INT. AMANDA'S HOUSE

As she begins to cut her hand with the dagger and continue the ritual, the platter of rotting food bursts into flames.


EXT. STREET

PAUL recovers from choking and leans back against his car.

DEAN
You okay?

PAUL
What the hell is happening to me?!

DEAN
Someone murdered your wife and now they're trying to kill you, that's what's happening to you.

PAUL
That's impossible! There's no way-

DEAN
If we hadn't have been following you, you'd be a doornail right now. Now who wants you dead?

PAUL
I-uh...

DEAN
Come on think.

PAUL
There's a woman-uh

DEAN
A woman, okay?

PAUL
An affair- a mistake, she was un-balanced, she was blackmailing me and I put an end to it a week ago.

SAM
What's her name?

PAUL
What could she have to do with-?

DEAN
Paul what is her name?


INT. AMANDA'S HOUSE

AMANDA is frantically flipping through the pages of a book with occult symbols on it and foreign language written around the symbols. A wind blows through her house blowing out the candles on her altar. AMANDA screams and holds out her left arm where one cut has already been sliced in her wrist vertically. Two more slice down next to that cut with no visible assailant and blood begins to pour out of the wounds.

AMANDA
No! No...aah no!

Three cuts slice into her right wrist vertically matching those on her left wrist and blood pours out of them despite AMANDA's creams in protest. She falls forward pushing the altar off the table and lands face down on her glass coffee table blood from her cut wrists pooling around her arms her eyes shut.


INT. AMANDA'S HOUSE - NIGHT

DEAN picks the lock and enters AMANDA's house followed closely by SAM with their guns drawn. They enter the room and find AMANDA lifeless on the table covered in blood and switch on the light.

DEAN
That's a curveball.

SAM
Yeah.

They approach AMANDA's body, and DEAN lifts her right arm with the barrel of his gun then looks at the other as well.

DEAN
Three per wrist, vertical. She wasn't foolin' around.

SAM puts his gun in the back of his jeans and bends down to look at the scattered remnant of the altar holding his nose to the smell of the burnt rotten food.

SAM
Yeah, looks like she was working some heavyweight evil here.

DEAN
Yup.

DEAN turns around nearly running into the hanging body of a rabbit.

DEAN
Oh god! Freakin' witches! Seriously man, come on!

SAM
Guess we know where she got the rabbit's teeth from.

DEAN
Well, Paul sure knows how to pick 'em huh? It's like Fatal Attraction all over again.

SAM
Yeah.

DEAN
And why does the rabbit always get screwed in the deal?! The poor little guy.

SAM
You know what I don't get Dean? If she was so bent on revenge, why do this?

DEAN
Well, she got Janet Dutton, thought she finished off Paul, decided to cap herself and make it a spurned lovers hat-trick.

SAM
Maybe.

SAM starts to look under the glass table that AMANDA is on.

DEAN
I mean, this doesn't exactly look like the TV room of a bright and stable person you know?

SAM
No, but then...

SAM reaches around and pulls out another hex bag that is tucked under the table and stands up tossing it to DEAN.

SAM
There's this.

DEAN
Another hex bag? Come on!

DEAN opens the bag to find similar contents of the bag they found in JANET's bathroom and he tosses it on the table reaching for his phone.

DEAN
Looks like we got a hit huh? A little witch on witch violence?

SAM
I guess.

DEAN dials the phone and hold it up to his ear.

DEAN
I'd like to report a dead body, 309 Mayfair Circle. My name? Yeah, sure my name is

DEAN clicks the phone shut cutting himself off.

DEAN
Why are witches ganking each other?

SAM
I don't know, but I think maybe we got a coven on our hands.
