The boys take on a case Jo has researched in Philadelphia where blonde girls in an apartment building are disappearing. Jo, without Ellen’s permission, follows the boys to join them on the hunt.

While researching the case Jo shares with Dean that the reason she hunts is because it makes her feel connected to her father. They discover that the apartment building is built over the place H.H.Holmes, America’s first serial killer, was executed and that he may be holding his latest victim in a hidden room.

While searching the building, Jo gets captured by the spirit of H.H. Holmes. Sam and Dean rescue her and then use her as bait to trap him.

Ellen catches up with the boys and Jo, and there is a long uncomfortable drive back to the Roadhouse. We find out that Ellen believes John Winchester was responsible for her husband’s death.

Timeline & Locations



When Sam is researching H.H Holmes, we see an old photo of a dead woman. This is in fact a photo of one of Jack the Ripper's victims, Annie Chapman, not one of Holmes.

The episode is named after a play by Jean-Paul Satre. The best know line from this play is Hell…is other people. In the play, three people are locked in a windowless room expecting to be tortured. No-one arrives, but by probing each other's sins, dark secrets and thoughts – they torture each other


Dean: A young girl been kidnapped by an evil cult?
Sam: Girl gotta name?
Dean: Katie Holmes
Sam: That’s funny! But for you - so bitchy

Dean (to Jo): Sweetheart, this ain't gender studies. Women can do the job fine. Amateurs can't.

Dean (to Jo): I was six or seven, and he took me shooting for the first time. You know, bottles on a fence, that kind of thing. I bulls-eyed every one of them. He gave me this smile, like... I don't know.

Sam: So? Is this job as glamorous as you thought it would be?
Jo: Well, except for all the pee-your-pants terror, yeah sure. But that Teresa girl's going to live a life because of us. It's worth it, isn't it?
