Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) answer a call on their dad’s old cell phone, alerting them someone has broken into John’s secret storage room in New York. They discover a cursed rabbit’s foot has been stolen and call Bobby (Jim Beaver) for help.
He advises them to beware of the foot because anyone who touches it will receive an extreme amount of good luck, but once the foot is lost that person will die. Unfortunately, Sam has already handled the foot, which causes an overjoyed Dean to buy lottery tickets, but a female thief (Lauren Cohan) steals it from Sam causing his luck to plummet and putting his life in danger.

The devils gate was open in Wyoming” The visitor says..
The prisoner is Gordon (Season 2,Bloodlust) “Sam Winchester was there wasn’t he?” Gordon asked… Gordon thinks that Sam is a demon and he let the devils gate open on purpose. The visitors name is Kubrick.. Gordon tells him to track down Sam and that Sam must die.
“Supernatural Opening Titles”
Impala.. Dean and Sam are arguing about “Ruby” Dean wants to know why he didn’t kill her.. Sam tells him that she said that she could get Dean out of the crossroad deal. Sam says “This Ruby girl knows more then we will ever find out on our own”.. Phone rings.. It’s not Sam or Deans. It’s Johns. (Dean keeps it in the glove department in case one of Johns friends calls) Sam answers and learns that John had a storage container in Buffalo and it’s been robbed.
Back to Kubrick who has a partner.. There getting ready to go hunting. There talking about how Sam will cover his tracks and this will be hard, There heading to Nebraska.
Dean and Sam are going to the storage container.. Threes a symbol by the door which means “no demons aloud” and threes blood on it, they start to walk in and find 2 pairs of boot prints. There all sorts of crazy stuff, Sam’s old soccer trophy, Deans first sod off shotgun, Ammo, Guns, Grandees, Landmines, and Boxes… All locked up. Sam and Dean start to look at the box’s, There “curse box’s” what they do is hold cursed objects, Threes a mark on the shelf… One box is missing.
Thieves house, 2 guys have the box..One is shot the other is trying to get the box open, They break it open and one of the guys touches it. It’s a rabbits foot. Someone knocks at the door, It’s there apartment manager and he sees that one of them was shot. He says he used to be a army medic and he can do a fast fix.
Sam and Dean are able to find the thieves because they parked in front of the security camera.. The thieves are playing cards and the one who touched the rabbits foot just got his second Royal flush in 4 hands…(He is getting very lucky, he thinks it’s cause of the rabbits foot) Dean and Sam run it with guns pointed. They see the opened box and they try to figure out what the heck was in it. The lucky thieve attacks Dean, Deans gun goes off and Dean drops it.. The gun shot bounces off the wall and hits Sam’s gun. Both boys just lost there guns, They start to fight and Dean and Sam back into each other, Dean goes down… Gets up and gets hit in the face with a gun. Sam is being chocked and is trying to grab the rabbits foot…. He gets it and pushes the thieve off of him, The thieve grabs the gun and pulls the trigger at Sam.. It’s a blank. The thieve steps back and trips, He’s knocked out. Sam looks at the other thieve and books fall on him and he goes down. Both thieves are down and Sam has the gun.
Dean is getting lottery tickets he says that “My gun don’t jam, So that was a Lucky break”… Sam tells Dean that the Rabbits foot must be cursed or John wouldn’t have locked it up, During this Sam was scratching a lottery ticket and he hands it to Dean. “You just won 1,200 dollars…. WHOOOWHHH!”
The thieves wake up, The one who was lucky goes to the sink to wash his face… On the way to get his partner up he slides on a beer bottle and impales himself on a marshmallow roaster. We realize he has bad luck…
Sam calls calls Bobby and Bobby says “if you touch it you own it, you own it you get a run of good luck, if you lose it that luck turns, and it turns so bad y,that our dead inside a week” “then i wont lose it” Sam replies, Bobby tells Sam that everyone losses it and that he will see what he can do… Sam and Dean go into a restaurant to eat, There the 1,000,000 costumer which means free burgers for a year.
Kubrick and his partner have gotten the word out that there looking for Sam, They are getting hungry and they go online to see this menu for a restaurant near them that one of them loves….
Sam and Dean are eating, Dean looks sick cause of the free burgers. Waitress comes and spills coffee, She goes to get Sam some more, Her and Sam stare at each other.. Dean tells Sam “that dude, if you were ever going to get Lucky…” Sam shrugs off what Dean says and he stand up and bumps into a waiter and then knocks a few things over.. Dean looks down and the rabbits foot is gone. The waitress picked it up with a cloth and is now running away from the dinner, She throws her wig into the dumpster. Sam and Dean run outside looking for her, Sam trips and falls on his face.
Kubrick is looking over the menu they find something they like and are looking for a location… They go to the main page and threes Dean and Sam with a big “FREE BURGERS FOR ONE YEAR” sign. Kubrick thinks this is a sign from God.
The thieve is taking a drink and he pours some on the floor in remembrance of his partner. Sam and Dean walk in and they wanna know who hired him to steal the rabbits foot. (they think it’s the waitress) They move in closer to try and get it out of him, Sam falls over.. They explain the rabbits foot to him and that Sam needs to know who she is so they can find a way to save Sam. Dean convinces him to give them a name.
Kubrick is at the dinner and since Sam and Dean got there food for free threes no trail, Kubrick tells his partner they just need to sit tight cause threes a “higher force at work”
Sam and Dean are outside the apartment of the thieve, and there getting ready to go get the fake waitress and Bobby calls, Dean answers.. they say that they think they know who it is, “lagoesy” Bobby says that’s the name “Bela” uses…. and shes trouble, But he will try and track her down. Sam gets gum on his shoe and tries to wipe it off on a grate, the grate breaks and his shoe falls down it. (AHH LOL)
Dean hangs up and looks at Sam “what happened?” in the most pathetic voice ever Sam says “I lost my shoe”
Bobby gets them the info on Bela, She lives 2hrs away. Dean takes Sam to a hotel (right outside the hotel is Kubrick’s car) They get a room and Dean tells Sam to just sit in the chair till he gets back. Dean doesn’t wanna die cause of Sam being unlucky.
Dean is at Bela’s place, She is up stirs on the phone, Shes trying to sell the Rabbits foot and she has a buyer, She sees Dean on the security camera. Dean walks in and they point guns at each other heads. Dean “You forgot your tip”
Sam is sitting in the hotel, The air conditioner breaks and starts smoking.. Sam looks at it and says “Come on.. I didn’t.. I..” He gets up to go fix it, On the way over there it catches on fire, He puts it out but his arm catches on fire and he has to use the curtain to put it out, He pulls down the curtain and knocks himself out, Kubrick was talking to his partner right outside the window, When they see Sam they both look up to the sky and smile.
Dean and Bela are still guns drawn, Bela starts talking about how much she could make from the Rabbit foot and Deans trying to tell her that she will put people in danger. This whole time Bella has avoided touching it cause she knows of the curse, That makes Dean mad that she knows what is does and will sell it.
Kubrick is laughing at Sam at how he just fell right in front of him, and how east is was for them, Then Sam gets punched in the face, He’s out cold.
Bela tries to make a deal with Dean, Dean says no…. Dean reaches down and grabs the rabbits tail so he has the luck, She shots at him but misses and he runs away smiling.
Sam is being interrogated by Kubrick, There asking him why he opened the devils gate, and he tells them he did everything he could to stop it. He’s getting the crap beaten out of him. Kubrick pulls out a gun and his partner stops him. They argue and Kubrick goes to shot Sam. “It’s destiny” Kubrick says… “Nope, no destiny” Dean says with his gun pointed at Kubrick, Dean knowing he has the luck throw a pen at Kubrick and it lands in his gun barell.
Kubrick’s partner runs at Dean and falls, Kubrick then tries to run at Dean and Dean throws a remote and hits Kubrick in the head. Both are knocked out.
“I’m batman”” says Dean… “Yeah… Your Batman” replies Sam.
Sam and Dean are about to destroy the Rabbits foot, But Dean makes Sam wait so he can scratch off a few lottery tickets first.
Dean says “Goodbye rascally rabbit” and then he hears a gun get ****ed. He looks behind him and threes Ruby with a gun. She tells him to put the foot down, He says no cause he has the luck and she can’t shot him, So she shots Sam in the shoulder, She aims at Sam and says “You i can’t hit, Him i can’t miss” Dean goes to set it down and he throws is at her, She catches it.. And Dean smiles at her.
She knows the only way she wont die is if they destroy it so she throws it in the fire, And walks away.. Dean says “Don’t go away angry, just go away”
Sam and Dean are leaving and Dean realizes that the lottery tickers are gone… Bella stole them from him.. Dean looks around and sees her leave.. he then yells “Son of a ***ch”
Kubrick is at the prison talking to Gordon, He now believes that Sam needs to go down… Gordon says the first step is getting him out.
Then “Sam Winchester must die.”
This episode managed to have some of the funniest moments of the series and yet have a darker plot with Gordon, Not only does Dean have less then a year to live, But Sam is being hunted down by a hunter, In the end it’s just another Bad Day at Black Rock.
Review by Gaelic
3.03: Bad Day at Black Rock
This show just doesn’t stop. I tops itself with each installment — in various ways. The layers peel back subtly so rabid fans can see the character shifts play out, yet the story remains interesting so that casual fans can watch and enjoy.
Sam Winchester must die. How friggin’ great is that? I’ll tell you why I think so. In a minute.
Okay, to start, I loved that Sam told Dean Ruby was a demon — I expected that to be dragged out for a bit, so yay. And I loved Dean’s reaction, as in “you believe her?!” when Sam said she could help them with Dean’s Crossroads deal. The side glances that boy gives… stomach flutter central. The best part of that conversation, for me, was Dean asking Sam if he was feeling okay and Sam replying that yes, he was fine, and why does Dean keep asking him that? Awesome.
Because you died, man. Because he has a nagging worry that he won’t face but can’t help but occasionally think about that the YED planted in the back of his mind that you might not be all you… Because he’s going to die for you and you have to be alright when he does.
Moving on… Sam’s smooth cover of John’s alias was awesome. I love how damn good these boys are at what they do. And not just demon killing. Lying and subterfuge (well, except when Sam has to lie flat out to Dean’s face…), breaking and entering, covering each other and the room with well aimed pistols. Good GOD. Dean’s obvious excitement at the fact that John had a storage… room… thingy… that they didn’t know about was fantastic. *clutches heart* Exploring John’s storage unit (unit! I couldn’t think of that word…) was fantastic — noting what their Dad had done to protect the stuff — the trip wire and the shotgun — finding Sam’s soccer trophy and Dean’s first sawed-off (6th grade?!)… and who among us doesn’t think those grenades, weapons, and friggin’ LAND MINES are going to come in handy some time down the road…
OCs: Okay, the red neck storage room thieves that Bella hired cracked me up. And was it me, or did Groseman look like he could have been Max Miller’s dad? I spent the first five minutes I saw him going “he is SO familiar!” Never caught the other guy’s name, but their delivery and dialog were fantastic. Of course, you knew they were doomed, so it was okay to enjoy them. The death by grilling fork was especially ugh-inducing. I mean they telegraphed it so loudly I nearly covered my ears rather than my eyes, but I think that purposeful, repetitive shot of the beer bottle just amped up the tension so that the cringe was well-earned when Groseman saw his buddy shish-ka-bobbed.
Gordon’s Jesus Freak pal… Kubrick was it? Hard to catch his name, too… also seemed familiar. I know he’s been in other things, but he was great in a uber-creepy way. His dark-haired partner, though, had a voice like a cartoon character. I love how they were written as well. “Don’t play with my Jesus.” HA! And that calm, mindless chatter about looking up the menu online and how Kubrick liked it when they deep fry the ENTIRE onion… LAUGH. When they caught Sam and taped him to the chair, “Looked like Jerry Lewis trying to stack chairs!” LAUGH. Again!
Sam: Oh, my god, how friggin’ adorable was he this whole episode? From irritation at Dean for apparently repeatedly asking if he was feeling okay, to finding his soccer trophy (“the only time you were ever a boy”) to the mad-cap fight with Groseman and “Bob”… I love the look on Sam’s face when he magically caught Dean’s gun and frowned at the rabbit’s foot. His reluctant glee at his good luck while talking to Bobby (Dean in the background counting their wealth was priceless) was totally topped by his outright appreciation for Bella in a wig (and seriously, how many totally called the pick-pocket maneuver? Raise you hands. I mean when we saw him put it in his pocket and she was so coy with the coffee… you totally knew).
I loved how both boys leaned forward to watch her walk away… so. cute. But badluckSam was fantastic. From knocking the tray out of the waitress’s hands to falling on the pavement — oh, man the best was tripping over the electrical cord in the apartment while Dean stood stock-still, a pained expression on his face, asking quietly when the commotion ceased if Sam was okay. God, Sam’s face was endearing. Dean talking to Bobby with Sam flailing in the background with the gum… and I swear the boy looked four years old when he said “I lost my shoe.”
Such a little brother face when Dean took him to the hotel room, sat him down, and told him not to even scratch his nose… you saw the instant his nose started to itch. And the poor boy’s protests when Kubrick was beating the crap out of him… whimper. And Bella SHOT him?! What. The. Hell?! Poor Sammy went through the wringer in this one. If I were a Sammy girl, it might have actually done something for me other than make me say “awww” a few hundred times.
Dean: Oh, our boy was on FIRE. So friggin’ beautiful. The obligatory reminder that he’s going to hell was even appropriate, I thought. His glee at Sam’s good luck, his consternation at Sam’s bad luck (and by extension, his bad luck) just danced across his face. I loved how he talked Groseman out of the information… didn’t work on Bella, but you can’t win them all. I LOOOOVED how he pulled the Ninja maneuver and got into her apartment with the “turn around” note, playing up the Mexican standoff until he could pocket the rabbit’s foot for himself. And the way he tricked her into grabbing the foot herself, brilliant.
I found it telling how when they broke into the storage unit, Dean said that they may have spent so much time with John, but they really didn’t know him. And that he keeps his Dad’s cell phone charged… just in case. He soooo hasn’t written himself out of the equation as much as he might pretend he has. His attitude with Bella was perfect. He didn’t even once notice her as a hottie after her identity was revealed (Bella Lagosi? HA!). He was focused on getting the thing that would save his brother. And he did so with that ****y confidence that is soooo Dean.
Hands down best Dean moment is the taking out of Kubrick and Friend in the motel — the pen in the gun barrel, the remote to the nose… and “I’m Batman”… LAUGH. That. Was. Awesome. His constant awareness of Sam after Bella took that rabbits foot really worked for me. He was always a few steps in front of Sam, but he knew right where his brother was and listened for every trip, fall, stumble… and when Sam lost his shoe, Dean was twisting around to keep him in his sights. It’s the balance we’ve come to depend on.
Bela: Welll…. I am more intrigued by the purpose of her character than by the actress at the moment. She’s pretty, I’ll give her that. And she handed out the snark. I see her as a great adversary for Dean — a mercenary, in it for herself, a female Han Solo… if done right, I can see Dean’s plight, his destiny, just his way of being shifting Bella’s focus from herself to a bigger picture in the “I bet that meant more to you than money” Star Wars line of thinking. She knows their world, and she doesn’t care, and that has got to drive him NUTS. To just live for herself, regardless of what that does to others? Hmmm… how… awful… *smirk*
I just wish she didn’t talk like Hermione Granger. It wasn’t so much her accent as it was her inflection, deliver, and tone. “I’m better than you. I know it, and I want you to know I know it.” I’ll have to keep my mind open a bit on that. Jury’s still out.
Dean’s parting shot that he thinks she’s a “truly awful person”… the fact that he had to focus on the thing he is BEST at: saving Sam… and being confronted with a person that has lived an obvious good portion of her life doing what he was testing the waters with over the last couple episodes… makes me think we’ll be seeing that slow shift to the Dean that will fight this destiny.
Which brings me to “Sam Winchester must die.” Gordon’s whiskey-flavored tobacco voice speaking that line with such certainty nearly made me clap. (Aside: Glad even Gordon was weirded out by the pseudo Blues Brother’s mission from God…) I know there’s been unrest among some fans about S3 being more about Sam and his purpose and his destiny and all that, but I firmly believe that there is no reason to have an arc about Dean that doesn’t involve Sam in peril. The one thing that is going to bring Dean out swinging is someone or something threatening his brother.
Sam in trouble with the rabbit’s foot brought Dean to life. He suddenly looked like he was comfortable in his own skin again. And if there is now a hunter APB, thanks to Kubrick, out on Sam… and the word is that he’s “not human”… that he’s to be hunted… Dean will fully engage. At the risk of waxing sentimental and pulling a Bill Pullman from Independence Day… If Sam is in danger, there’s no way Dean will go gently into that good night and there will be some serious raging against the dying of the light.
But he won’t be able to shift from “I deserve to be a little selfish” straight back to “it’s all about saving Sam” in one fell swoop because he made a pretty serious choice with his life and he did so very quickly in a moment of true darkness and Bobby’s incredulous “do you have that low opinion of yourself” question will have to be answered before Dean is whole enough to win this fight.
So, that’s why I think that sentence rocked. Cheesy as it was the 2nd time, for me it set the stage for a great character build of a hero.
Okay. I’m good. We can go.

Momment of the episode: – Played at the bar where and Sam meet Bela.
Momment of the episode: – Played while the guy was missing his friend and Dean and Sam arrive to ask him if he knows something about Bela.
(Bela flirts with Sam)
Dean: Dude, if you are ever gonna get lucky…
Sam: Shut up.
(Dean shows Sam a sheaf of lottery scratcher tickets)
Sam: Dean, c’mon.
Dean: What? Hey, that was my gun he was aiming at your head. My gun don’t jam, so that was a lucky break. Not to mention them taking themselves out, also a lucky break. (holds a scratcher out to Sam) Here, scratch one. C’mon, Sam. Scratch and win!
Sam: (scratching) Dean, it’s gotta be cursed somehow. Otherwise, Dad wouldn’t have locked it up.
(Dean grabs the ticket and checks it out)
Dean: $1,200. You just won $1,200. Ha ha! Whooo! I dunno, man, it doesn’t seem that cursed to me. (whips out another ticket for Sam to scratch)
(Dean telling Bobby on the phone that Sam lost the rabbit’s foot)
Dean: Bobby listen listen… this ehh… hot chick stole it from him. I’m serious… in her mid 20s… she was sharp you know good enough with the con to play us… and she only gave the guys she hired a name probably an alias something…. Luigi or something.
(Dean looks at Sam with a confused look)
Bobby: Lugosi??… Lugo…. oh crap.. it’s probably Bela.
Dean: Bela Lugosi?? (sarcastically) Oh that’s cute.
Dean: Hey, back off, jinx. I’m bringing home the bacon.
Dean: Anyhoo, this has been charming, but uh, look at the time. Oh and this… (pulls out rabbit’s foot) …looks like you’re not the only one with sticky fingers. If it’s any consolation, I think you’re a truly awful person. (Bela shoots at Dean) See you.
Dean: So, you know the truth, about what’s really going on out there, and this is what you decide to do with it? You become a thief?
Bela: I procure unique items for a select clientèle.
Dean: Yeah, a thief.
Bela: No, a great thief.
Dean: Oh, wow! It’s my first sawed-off. I made it myself. Sixth grade.
Dean: So you’re only out for yourself, huh? It’s all about number one?
Bela: Being a hunter is so much more noble? A bunch of obsessed, revenge driven sociopaths trying to save a world that can’t be saved?
Dean: Well, aren’t you a glass half-full?
Dean: What the hell is wrong with you? You don’t just go around shooting people like that!
Bela: Relax, it’s a shoulder hit. I can aim. Besides, who here hasn’t shot a few people?
Bela: (after burning the foot) Thanks very much. I’m out of one and a half million and on the bad side of a very powerful, fairly psychotic buyer.
Dean: Wow, I really don’t feel bad about that. Sam?
Sam: Nope, not even a little.
Dean: But you see, there’s something about me that you don’t know…
Kubrick: Yeah, what would that be?
Dean: It’s my lucky day.
Bela: You can have the foot… for 1.5 million.
Dean: Nice. I’ll just call my banker.
Bela: We’re all going to Hell, Dean. Might as well enjoy the ride.
(Dean leads Sam into a hotel room)
Sam: What am I even supposed to do, Dean?
Dean: Nothing, nothing! Come here. I don’t want you doing anything! I want you to sit right here and don’t move! Okay? Don’t turn on the light, don’t turn off the light, don’t even scratch your nose!
Dean: You’re not gonna shoot anybody. See, I happen to be able to read people. And sure you’re a thief, fine, but you’re not gonna… (Bela shoots Sam)
Dean: (to Sam) She knows what your weakness is. It’s me!
Kubrick: You were right about everything. Sam Winchester is more than a monster. He’s the Adversary.
Gordon: And what happened to convince you?
Kubrick: God led me to him. And His will is clear.
Gordon: Okay. Glad to have you on board, Kubrick. But first things first. We got to get me the hell out of here. Because, like I told you before, Sam Winchester must die.
Bobby: (to Dean) Watch out for your brother, you idjit.
Dean: (To Sam) What?
Sam: I lost my shoe.
Kubrick: (to his companion) It’s God. He sent us here to do this. It’s destiny. (points gun at Sam, tied up in chair)
Dean: Nope. No destiny. Just a rabbit’s foot.
Kubrick: I used to think Gordon sent me.
Sam: (tied up in the chair) Gordon? Oh, come on!
Kubrick: He wanted me to put a bullet through your head.
Sam: Yeah. Sounds like him.
Kubrick: But I’m on a mission from God. (slaps Sam)
Dean: (after knocking out the robbers) That was a lucky break. (gesturing to object in Sam’s hand) Is that a rabbit’s foot?
Sam: I think it is.
Dean: (reading from trophy) 1995.
Sam: No way. That’s my Division Championship soccer trophy. I can’t believe he kept this.
Dean: Probably the closest you ever got to being a boy.
Dean: Oh don’t go away angry. Just go away. (edit) Dean: I’m Batman.
Sam: (sarcastically) Yeah, you’re Batman.
- When Wayne falls on the fork, we can see it has been pushed up through his mouth a lot further than it was originally standing up. The fork appears to be a lot longer in his mouth.
- When Bela was walking away from the restaurant table, the blue cloth with the foot in it was in her right hand and the coffee was in her left. The next shot they were opposite with the cloth in her left hand and the coffee in her right. She couldn’t have maneuvered a change that fast.
- When the army medic walks into Wayne and Grossman’s apartment, Wayne shoves the rabbit’s foot back into the cursed box. Then in a later shot, Wayne looks at the foot, and it is lying neatly on the table when no one had moved it.
- The bumper stickers on the back of Kubrick’s RV read:
“How would Jesus drive?”
“Don’t make me come down there. -GOD” and
“Bethlehem or bust”
- When Sam and Dean are at the hotel after Sam loses his shoe, there is a brief shot of them walking where he has shoes on both feet. Later on, when he’s sitting in the chair, his shoe is missing again.
- Lauren Cohan joins the starring cast in this episode.
- Dean: Pull a little Rain Man. You can be Rain Man.
Referencing the 1988 movie starring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman, with Tom Cruise as Charlie Babbit discovering the brother he never had, savant Raymond (Rain Man).
- Dean: Say good bye, wascally wabbit.
This is from The Bugs Bunny Show, which features cartoon animals in an animated world. Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny were two of them. Elmer was always hunting down Bugs Bunny, who was a rabbit. He was never able to say the ‘R’ in a word, so whenever he talked to Bugs Bunny or about Bugs Bunny, instead of saying rascally rabbit, he would say “wascally wabbit.”
- Alias: Bela Lugosi
Although best known as Count Dracula in the 1920s and 30s, Hungarian Born Bela Lugosi is synonymous with the role of “villain” in horror films.
- Edgar Cayce
The name John used for his storage unit, Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) was an American who claimed to have psychic abilities and had a significant impact on the New Age movement.
- Sam: Yeah. You’re Batman.
Batman is a fictional comic book superhero who does not possess superpowers and, instead, makes use of intellect, detective skills, science and technology, wealth, physical prowess, and intimidation in his war on crime.
