WISHFUL THINKING
Episode 408
airdate: 6 November 2008

directed by Robert Singer
written by Eric Kripke, Ben Edlund


Dean and Sam investigate a supposed ghost in a women's shower, only to find out that the "ghost" is a kid who has turned invisible -- because that's what he wished for at a wishing well. There is also a giant teddy bear, a couple on an extended trip, a bullied boy who's grown extremely strong, and a geeky man (Wesley) with a hot girlfriend. The Winchesters question Wesley and find out he dropped an ancient coin into the well...and he's the only one who can take it back out. After much chaos, Wesley finally agrees and everything returns to normal.

  • Sam is truly resigned to life as it is now, and perhaps obsessed with finding and killing Lilith. When asked what he would wish for most in the world, Sam replies, Lilith's head on a plate -- bloody."

  • A wishing well is a term from European folklore to describe wells where it was thought that any spoken wish would be granted. Water was long considered sacred, and it was thought that deities lived in it. The coins were offerings to the gods, and if they landed a certain way, a wish would be granted. In November 2006, a British agency reported that tourists throw just under 3 million pounds per year into wishing wells!

  • Dean tried to tell Todd, "With great power comes great ... ," before Todd chokes him. This is a reference to the line commonly attributed to the comic book character Spider-Man, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, and omitting the word "responsibility." The line, as first used in Amazing Fantasy #15, is actually "With great power there must also come great responsibility."

This episode was excellent, very funny, but even something sad about what Dean told Sam about hell ..
Love when they went to Audrey's house and say they're teddy bear doctors, and that the bear has the lollipop disease, I was like awwww how sweet :3!
Be careful what you wish for ... ;D

It seem apparent that he isin fact a CW Star. In Episode "Legion", of Smallville, Calum Worthy plays the role of Lightening Lad and a few references to Supernatural are inputed in the script!
-"Lighteing lad you might want to take that AC foot out of your DC mouth"
-"TECHNO excorsism"
-When legion is walking across the street he says something about the air and the sulfur makes him barf LOL

It gave you a reason to watch Smallville.
