[S2E8] Crossroad Blues !FULL!

The episode opens in a low-lit bar in 1938. A black bluesman is on stage playing his guitar, holding a cigarette in his mouth. He glances casually at a young black woman in the audience. Suddenly he hears growling from outside and stops. However, when he stops playing, the growling stops. He continues to play but every few seconds, the growling would start again, and each time he heard it, he would stop playing. He suddenly notices a large shadow figure dash by the window outside. He drops his cigarette to the ground and darts out the door with his guitar still in hand. The bluesman runs down a dark road, dropping his guitar in a panic. He rushes homes bolting the door and pushing a chair under the doorknob. However the chair doesn't keep hold as the door breaks open, and Sadie (the young black woman) and two other guys rush in to find the bluesman having some kind of seizure. Sadie tries to keep him alive, but the bluesman responds by whispering "black dogs".

Download Zip:

Sam and Dean walk up to the bar. Dean notices there are yarrow flowers planted in the middle of a bunch of weeds, used for summoning rituals. They find it odd that ten years ago, two people suddenly became sudden successes where there just happens to be a crossroad. Dean starts digging a hole at the center of the crossroad and finds an old metal box buried inside. They open it up and find a bottle of graveyard dirt, a black cat bone, and other deep hoodoo items, used for summoning demons. Dean recalls that crossroads are where pacts are made and realizes that these people aren't just summoning the demon, but making deals with it. Sam says that these people aren't seeing black dogs, but rather hellhounds (demonic pit bulls).

1930: Robert Johnson's "Crossroad Blues" song is playing in the background. Robert puts his picture in the box with the other hoodoo items, and buries the box in the center of the crossroad. He turns around to find the demon and responds with a simple "Holy...". Robert tells the demon that he wants her to make him the best bluesman that ever lived. She grants him his wish with a kiss. By the time he opens up his eyes, she's vanished.

Present: Sam and Dean are discussing this hunt. Dean says that this case is like the Robert Johnson Legend, the whole selling your soul at the crossroads deal. Dean explains that Robert Johnson died choking on his own blood. He was hallucinating and muttering about "big black dogs". Sam says they need to find out if any more people made deals with this demon. Dean believes they should just forget about this case because it's their decision to make these deals. Sam still insists that they shouldn't leave these people to die. Despite how Dean feels, he agrees to continue on with the hunt.

Dean tells Sam to take the goofer dust and keep the hellhounds away from Evan and that he's going to the crossroad to summon the demon. Sam thinks it's a bad idea because of the way Dean's been acting. Sam thinks that Dean believes their dad made one of these demonic deals to save his life and that he should stay with him. Despite what Sam thinks, Dean heads for the crossroads.

In Rosedale, Mississippi, in 1930, Robert Johnson makes a deal with a demon at the crossroads, asking to be the greatest blues guitarist that ever lived. The deal is sealed with a kiss. In Greenwood, Mississippi, in August 1938, Robert Johnson is playing blues guitar at Lloyd's Bar. There is a sound outside and he leaves, running as he hears dogs chasing him until he takes refuge in a house. Soon after he is found dying, mumbling about the black dogs that are after him.

Sam and Dean go to Lloyd's Bar, which is situated near a crossroads. The intersection is surrounded by yarrow, a plant used in summoning rituals, and at its center they dig up a tin containing a vial of graveyard dirt, black cat bones, and the photo of George Darrow. They realize that the black dogs are actually hellhounds which are collecting souls due in payment for deals with a demon.

Crossroad BluesCrossroads are where pacts are made. These people are actually making deals with the damn thing. You know, 'cause that always ends good.Sam: So, it's just like the Robert Johnson legend, right? I mean, selling-your-soul-at-the-crossroads kind of deal?Dean: Yeah, except that wasn't a legend. I mean, you know his music. [Sam shrugs] You don't know Robert Johnson's songs? Sam, there's occult references all over his lyrics. I mean, "Crossroad Blues"? "Me And The Devil Blues"? "Hellhound On My Trail"? The story goes, he died choking on his own blood. He was hallucinating and muttering about big evil dogs.

They track down the man in the photo buried under the crossroad, George Darrow. He has become a talented painter, but did not achieve fame or wealth. He admits to summoning the demon, and accepts his fate of going to Hell, but is holding off the hellhound with Goofer dust until he finishes his last painting. Realizing he doesn't want their help, the brothers track down Evan Hudson, who George says also made a deal with the demon. Evan tells them that he gave his soul so that his wife would be healed of her cancer. Dean plans to summon the demon, trap it, and try to get it to call off the hellhound, while Sam defends Evan. Sam has misgivings about the plan, saying that he knows that this is, for Dean, really about their dad's death; Sam's been thinking that their dad made some kind of similar deal for Dean; he knows Dean's been thinking it, too; and he doesn't want Dean blaming himself for their dad's death. Dean says they don't really have other options at this point and leaves. Sam stays to hold off the hellhound with the Goofer dust that George gave them.
