MOLLY<br />

We're lost.
<br />
THIS TRANSCRIPT IS IN PROCESS<br />DAVID<br />[reading the map]<br />No. This is a short cut...<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Babe, it's just we've been on this road over an hour, and we haven't seen a single car.<br /> <br />DAVID<br />Molly, I know how to read a frickin' map, okay?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />We passed a gas station a while back. Let's just go ask someone.<br /> <br />DAVID<br />That was 40 minutes ago. We're not turning around.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Come on. Isn't this argument a little archaic? Men can ask directions these days.<br /> <br />DAVID<br />No, we can't. It's against our genetic code. Look, I know exactly where we are.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Oh, yeah? Where?<br /> <br />DAVID<br />Highway 99, okay? It cuts right through...<br /><br />[they pass a sign that reads '41']<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Highway 99, huh?<br /> <br />DAVID<br />Okay, so we're taking the scenic route.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />David. It's our anniversary, and we're spending it stuck in the car.<br /> <br />DAVID<br />I know. I'm sorry. Let me make it up to you, okay? Come here.<br /><br />[he leans over, kissing at her neck playfully]<br /><br />MOLLY<br />Stop. I'm mad at you.<br /> <br />DAVID<br />Oh, come on, Molly. Hey, you love me.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />[smiling despite herself]<br />No, I don't. You're a jerk. David, I mean it.<br />[she pushes him off, taking her eyes off the road. A MAN appears in the road before them.]<br /> <br />DAVID<br />Molly!<br /><br />[screaming, she swerves to avoid the man and runs the car off the road]<br /><br />[later: the car has crashed into a tree. MOLLY wakes up and looks around, disoriented.]<br /><br />MOLLY<br />David? David?<br />[she crawls out of the wreck]<br />David? David?<br />[he is nowhere to be seen]<br />Da... David?!<br />[she staggers through the woods, calling for him]<br />David?! David?<br />[she comes upon a cabin, with a candle burning in the window]<br />Hello? Is anyone here?<br />[she enters]<br />Hello?<br />[she passes a wall covered in tools, then sees the MAN from the road standing with his back to her]<br />It's you. You're okay. I'm so sorry.<br />[close on his stomach, which she can't see and which is impaled and bloody]<br />I didn't see you there. Are you... Are you hurt?<br />[reaches out to touch him]<br />Sir?<br /><br />[He turns towards her, blood dripping down his face. His mouth opens, spilling more blood, and his face turns dark and rotting. She glances down and sees his stomach. She screams.]<br /><br />END TEASER<br /><br />TITLE CARD: SUPERNATURAL<br /><br />== ACT ONE ==<br /><br />EXT. WOODS - NIGHT<br /><br />MOLLY runs through the woods away from the cabin. She staggers onto the road, where a car is approaching.<br /><br />MOLLY<br />Stop!<br /><br />[she stands in the middle of the road, hands out; the car stops just short of her. It is the IMPALA.]<br /><br />MOLLY<br />You've got to help me.<br />[goes to the passenger's side and pounds on the window, which SAM rolls down.]<br />Please. Please!<br /> <br />SAM<br />All right, all right. Calm down, calm down. Tell us what happened.<br /> <br />EXT. ROAD - NIGHT<br /><br />SAM and DEAN have parked the IMPALA by the road and all three are standing around it.<br /><br />MOLLY<br />I-I swerved, a-And we crashed. And when I came to, the car was wrecked and my husband was missing. I went looking for him, but that's when the man from the road, he... he started chasing me.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Did he look like he lost a fight with a lawn mower?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />How did you know that?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Lucky guess.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Ma'am, what's your name?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Molly. Molly Mcnamara.<br /> <br />SAM<br />[exchanging a look with DEAN<br />I think maybe you should come with us. We'll take you back into town.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />I can't. I have to find David. He might have gone back to the car.<br /> <br />SAM<br />We should get you somewhere safe first. Then Dean and I will come back. We'll look for your husband.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />No. I'm not leaving here without him. Would you just take me back to my car, please?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Of course. Come on.<br /> <br />[EXT. WOODS - NIGHT]<br /><br />The IMPALA parks by the woods near the crash site. They get out, MOLLY leading them into the woods.<br /><br />MOLLY<br />It's right over there.<br />[they come upon the crash site, but the car is gone]<br />I don't understand. I'm sure this is where it was. W-We hit that tree right there. This... this doesn't make any sense.<br />[she goes to investigate, out of earshot]<br /> <br />SAM<br />Dean, we got to get out of here. Greeley could show up at any second.<br /><br />DEAN<br />What are you gonna tell her?<br /> <br />SAM<br />The truth?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />She's gonna take off running in the other direction.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />I know it sounds crazy, but I crashed into that tree. I don't know who could've taken it. It was totaled. Please. You have to believe me.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Molly, listen, we do believe you. But that's why we want to get you out of here.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What about David? Something must have happened. I have to get to the cops.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Cops... that's a great idea. We'll take you down to the station ourselves. So just come with us. It's the best way we can<br />help you and your husband.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Okay.<br /><br />[she comes back up]<br /><br />EXT. ROAD - NIGHT<br /><br />They drive down the road, MOLLY in the backseat.<br /><br />MOLLY<br />We're supposed to be in lake Tahoe.<br /> <br />SAM<br />You and David?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />It's our five-Year anniversary.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Hell of an anniversary.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Right before, we were having the dumbest fight. It was the only time we ever really argued... when we were stuck in the car.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Yeah. I know how that goes.<br /> <br />[DEAN scowls at him]<br /><br />MOLLY<br />You know the last thing I said to him? I called him a jerk. Oh, god. What if that's the last thing I said to him?<br /> <br />SAM<br />[turning to face her]<br />Molly... We're gonna figure out what happened to your husband. I promise.<br /><br />[the radio starts making odd noises, then plays 'House of the Rising Sun'. DEAN frowns at it]<br /><br />DEAN<br />Did you?<br /><br />SAM<br />No.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />I was afraid you'd say that.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />This song.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />What?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />It was playing when we crashed.<br /> <br />The radio crackles again, and settles on another station. A creepy voice (GREELEY'S) can be heard.<br /><br />GREELEY'S VOICE<br />She's mine. She's mine. She's mine.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What is that?<br /><br />GREELEY appears in the middle of the road. Dean floors it straight at him.<br /><br />DEAN<br />Hold on.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What are you doing?<br /><br />[He drives straight into GREELEY, who vanishes in a puff of smoke]<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What the... What the hell just happened?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Don't worry, Molly. Everything's gonna be all right.<br /> <br />[the IMPALA begins to shudder]<br /><br />DEAN<br />Spoke a little too soon, Sammy.<br />[the IMPALA coasts to a stop on the side of the road]<br />I don't think he's gonna let her leave.<br /><br />END ACT ONE<br /><br />== ACT TWO ==<br />All three exit the car.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />This can't be happening.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Well... Trust me, it's happening.<br /> <br />He opens the trunk and starts pulling out weaponry. MOLLY comes around and sees the arsenal, backs away slowly.<br /><br />MOLLY<br />Well... Okay. Thanks for helping, but I think I got it covered from here.<br /> <br />SAM<br />[going after her]<br />Wait. Molly, Molly, wait a minute.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Just leave me alone.<br /> <br />SAM<br />No. Please. You have to listen to me.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Just stay away.<br /><br />[turns and starts to leave]<br /><br />SAM<br />It wasn't a coincidence that we found you, all right?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />[stops, turns back]<br />What are you talking about?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />We weren't cruising for chicks when we ran into you, sister. We were already out here. Hunting.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Hunting for what?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Ghosts.<br /> <br />SAM<br />[exasperated]<br />D... d... don't... Sugar coat it for her.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />You're nuts.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Really? About as nuts as a vanishing guy with his guts spilling out. You know what you saw.<br /> <br />SAM<br />We think his name is Jonah Greeley. He was a local farmer that died 15 years ago on this highway.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Just stop.<br /> <br />SAM<br />One night a year, on the anniversary of his death, he haunts this road. That's why we're here, Molly. To try and stop him.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Now, I suppose this ghost made my car disappear, too.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Crazier things have happened. Huh?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />You know what? I'm all filled up on crazy. I'm gonna get the cops myself.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />I don't mean to be harsh, but I don't think you're gonna get too far.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What is that supposed to mean?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Means that plan 'A' was trying to get you out of here. Obviously that didn't go over too well with, uh, Farmer Roadkill.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Molly, we're telling the truth. Greeley's not gonna let you leave this highway.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />You're s... you're serious about this, aren't you?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Deadly.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Everyear, Greeley finds someone to punish for what happened to him. Tonight that person is you.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Why me? I didn't do anything.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Doesn't matter. Some spirits only see what they want.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />So you're saying this Greeley, he took my husband? Oh, god.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Molly, look, we're gonna help, all right? But first, you got to help us.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Help you? How?<br /> <br />INT. CABIN - NIGHT<br /><br />MOLLY has led them back to the cabin where she saw GREELEY.<br /><br />MOLLY<br />This is it. This is where I saw him.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Must have been his hunting cabin.<br />[sees vicious tools hanging, a bloodstained table]<br />Seemed like a real sweet guy.<br /> <br />SAM<br />No markers or headstones outside.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />You're looking for Greeley's grave?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Yeah.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Why?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />So we can dig up the corpse and salt and burn it.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Oh. Sure. Naturally.<br /> <br />SAM<br />It's a way to get rid of a spirit.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />And that'll save David?<br /> <br />SAM<br />This is what'll help both of you, provided there's a corpse to be found.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />So how do we find it?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Uh, not sure. After Greeley died, his wife claimed the body. And that was the last anyone saw of her. So good guess she brought him back here. But they have a thousand acres. He could be buried anywhere on 'em.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Is is really what you guys do? You're like Ghostbusters?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Yeah.<br /><br />DEAN<br />Minus the jumpsuits.<br />[briskly]<br />This is a fascinating conversation and all, but this highway is only haunted once a year, and we got till sun up to wrap this thing up. What do you say we move it along, okay? Great.<br /><br />They go outside and continue their search.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What are we looking for?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Greeley's house. Maybe he's buried there. Look for roads or paths or something. Stay close.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Yeah. Okay.<br /> <br />She hears a voice.<br /><br />VOICE<br />Molly? Molly, help me. Molly?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />David? David?<br /><br />She goes in search of the voice. GREELEY appears and grabs her. She screams.<br /><br />DEAN<br />[pointing his shotgun at GREELEY]<br />Whoops.<br />[shoots GREELEY in the head. he dissipates]<br /><br />SAM<br />[running to them]<br />Hey! Are you all right?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What has that son of a bitch done with my husband?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Just take it easy, all right? You're gonna see David again. You will.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Hey.<br />[indicating something ahead of them]<br />Follow the creepy brick road.<br /> <br />SAM<br />[gesturing MOLLY to follow DEAN; SAM takes up the rear]<br />Go ahead.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />That thing shoots rock salt?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Yep.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />And plain salt keeps away spirits?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Simple remedies are always the best. In most cultures, salt is a symbol of purity, so it repels impure and unnatural things. Same reason you throw it over your shoulder.<br /> <br />[The round the corner and see a creepy house]<br /><br />DEAN<br />You know, just once I'd like to round the corner and see a nice house.<br /><br />SAM and MOLLY enter the house; DEAN stays outside to look around. DEAN enters.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Any headstones outside?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Yeah, right. Is it ever that easy?<br /> <br />SAM<br />I guess not.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />You two check upstairs. See if you can find any notes or records telling us where he's buried. I'll just check down here.<br /><br />SAM and MOLLY go upstairs. They find a room strewn with papers.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Great.<br />[he starts going through the papers; MOLLY finds an old photo album by the window and opens it]<br /><br />MOLLY<br />Look at this.<br />[she takes the album to the bed and sits down. SAM joins her.]<br />It's Greeley and his wife.<br />[SAM turns a few pages]<br />It's a love letter he wrote her. My god, it's beautiful. I don't understand how a guy like this can turn into that monster.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Spirits like Greeley are,uh... Like wounded animals. Lost. In so much pain, that they lash out.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Why? Why are they here?1<br /17> <br /2011>SAM<br />Well, there's some part of them that... That's keeping them here. Like their remains or, um... Unfinished business.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Unfinished business?<br /><br />SAM<br />Yeah. It could be revenge. Could be love. Or hate. Whatever it is, they just hold on too tight. Can't let go. So they're trapped. Caught in the same loops. Replaying the same tragedies over and over.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />You sound almost sorry for them.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Well, they weren't evil people, you know? A lot of them were good. Just... Something happened to them. Something they couldn't control.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />[from the doorway]<br />Sammy's always getting a little J. Love Hewitt when it comes to things like this. Me, I don't like 'em. And I sure as hell ain't making apologies for 'em. There's nothing downstairs.<br /><br />SAM<br />Uh, just about every piece of mail or receipt they ever had. Looked through a couple, but nothing about a grave so far.<br /> <br />DEAN investigates a wall.<br /><br />SAM<br />What?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />There's something behind here.<br />[tosses his flashlight to SAM]<br />Here.<br />[moves a cabinet aside, revealing a small hidden door. He pokes at it]<br />It's locked from the inside.<br />[turning around, he throws a back kick at the door, which does nothing. He looks surprised, then braces himself and kicks harder. The door falls inward. They crawl through.]<br />Smells like old lady in here.<br />[he finds a corpse hanging by the neck from the ceiling.]<br />And that would explain why. Well, now we know why nobody ever saw her again.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />She didn't want to live without him.<br /> <br />SAM<br />[picking up a chair as if to take down the corpse]<br />Dean, give me a hand.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Really?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What are you gonna do?<br /> <br />SAM<br />We can't leave her like this.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Why not?<br /> <br />SAM<br />She deserves to be put to rest, Dean.<br /><br />DEAN reluctantly agrees. SAM stands on the chair and begins to cut through the rope as DEAN steadies the corpse.<br /><br />EXT. HOUSE - NIGHT<br /><br />SAM and DEAN dig a grave for Mrs. GREELEY.<br /><br />MOLLY<br />So... So, if you manage to put Greeley to rest, too... What happens to them?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Lady, that answer is way beyond our pay grade.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />You hunt these things, but you don't know what happens to them?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Well, they never come back. That's all that matters.<br /> <br />SAM<br />[seeing that this answer has not satisfied her]<br />After they let go of whatever's keeping them here, they...They just go. I hope someplace better, but we don't know. No one does.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What happens when you burn their bones?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Well, my dad used to say that was like death for ghosts, you know? But... The truth is, we still don't know. Not for sure.<br />[looks at DEAN]<br />Guess that's why we all hold on to life so hard. Even the dead. We're all just scared of the unknown.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />The only thing I'm scared of is losing David. I have to see him again. I have to.<br /> <br />END ACT TWO<br /><br />== ACT THREE ==<br />INT. HOUSE - NIGHT<br /><br />MOLLY is pacing in one room, looking through the photo album; SAM and DEAN waiting in another room nearby.<br /><br />SAM<br />I think we should tell her about her husband.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />We can't.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Dean, it's cruel, letting her pine for him like this. I don't like keeping her in the dark.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />It's for her own good.<br />[gets up]<br />I know you feel guilty, but let's just stick to the plan. Let's get her out of here. Then we'll tell her.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />[approaching]<br />Tell me what? What aren't you telling me? It's about David. You know what happened to him.<br /><br />SAM<br />Molly--<br /><br />DEAN<br />Sam, don't.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Don't what? Don't tell me because I'll mess up your hunt? You don't care about me or my husband.<br /> <br />SAM<br />That's not true.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Really? Then whatever it is, tell me, please.<br />[they hear the song 'House of the Rising Sun' begin to play]<br />He's coming.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Stay with her...<br /><br />DEAN goes cautiously towards the sound. He uncoveres a dusty radio that has powered itself up. He crouches down and finds a broken, frayed power cord. He hears another noise and goes toward the front door. It frosts over and the words 'SHE'S MINE' appear.<br /><br />In the other room, MOLLY is standing by the window. SAM steps cautiously forward towards the next room. Suddenly a figure crashes through the window behind MOLLY and grabs her. She screams as she is dragged outside. DEAN comes running back.<br /> <br />SAM<br />He's got Molly!<br /><br />They both leap through the window and chase them through the woods. They lose sight of them, and return to the house. <br /><br />DEAN<br />This guy is persistent.<br /> <br />SAM<br />We got to find Molly.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />We got to find Greeley's bones. And, uh, no pressure or anything, but we got less than two hours before sunrise.<br /> <br />SAM<br />[looking through the photo album]<br />Hey.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />What do you got?<br /> <br />SAM<br />[reading the caption on a photograph]<br />'February 6, 1992.'<br /> <br />DEAN<br />That was like two weeks before the accident, wasn't it?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Yeah. It looks like the hunting cabin, but... I swear there's a tree there right where they're standing. Should have thought of it.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />What?<br /> <br />SAM<br />It's an old country custom, Dean. Planting a tree as a grave marker.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />You're like a walking encyclopedia of weirdness.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Yeah. I know.<br /><br />[they leave]<br /><br />INT. HUNTING CABIN - NIGHT<br /><br />MOLLY is hanging from the ceiling by her wrists. <br /><br />MOLLY<br />Where's David? What did you do to him?<br /> <br />GREELEY<br />You shouldn't worry about him anymore.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Oh, my god.<br /><br />GREELEY<br />You should worry about yourself.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />I didn't do anything to you.<br /> <br />GREELEY<br />Oh?<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />[as he runs a filthy hand over her face]<br />I know... I know about your wife. Hurting me won't bring her back.<br /> <br />GREELEY<br />My wife is gone. All I got left's hurting you.<br /><br />[he slides a finger across her collarbone, slicing flesh]<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />P-Please. Just let me go.<br /> <br />GREELEY<br />Go? You're not gonna leave. You're never gonna leave.<br /><br />[he drags a finger across her belly, gouging deep]<br /><br />SAM and DEAN approach the cabin from the outside, carrying shovels.<br /><br />SAM<br />Go get Molly.<br /><br />[as DEAN heads inside, SAM begins to dig around the tree. Inside, GREELEY is approaching MOLLY menacingly when his head explodes in a shotgun burst, revealing DEAN behind him.]<br /><br />MOLLY<br />Oh, thank god.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Call me Dean.<br />[GREELEY appears behind DEAN, who turns to face him. GREELEY gestures and DEAN cries out, a cut appearing on his cheek.]<br />This guy's really pissing me off.<br /><br />- GREELEY gestures again and DEAN flies backward, slamming against the wall.<br />- Outside, SAM digs feverishly. He hits something hard.<br />- Inside, DEAN is still struggling against the wall. GREELEY reaches out, and a knife flies into his hand.<br />- SAM empties a box of salt into the open grave.<br />- GREELEY approaches DEAN with the knife.<br />- SAM empties a container of gasoline into the grave, lights a match and drops it in.<br />- GREELEY freezes and rears back in pain<br />- The corpse in the grave catches fire and burns<br />- GREELEY bursts into flame, is consumed, and disappears. The knife falls to the floor. <br /><br />END ACT THREE<br /><br />== ACT FOUR ==<br />DEAN, SAM, and MOLLY approach the IMPALA. DEAN pats it lovingly.<br /><br />DEAN<br />Oh, baby, it's been a long night.<br /> <br />DEAN drops his bag in the back, then climbs into the driver's seat. SAM opens the back door for MOLLY.<br /><br />SAM<br />All right. Let's get you out of here.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />I'm not going anywhere until you tell me what happened to my husband.<br /> <br />SAM<br />Molly...<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />All this time I've been looking for him, and you knew that... You knew that Greeley killed him, didn't you? He's dead.<br /> <br />SAM<br />No, Molly. David's alive.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What? You're sure?<br /> <br />SAM<br />I'm sure. We'll take you to him. Come on.<br /><br />[grinning, she gets in the car.]<br /><br />EXT. DAVID'S HOUSE - NIGHT<br /><br />They pull up in front of a nice suburban home. The lights are on inside. <br /><br />SAM<br />He's in that house right there.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />I don't understand.<br /> <br />SAM<br />You will.<br /><br />[They get out. She approaches the window, and can see DAVID inside. He is older, wearing a bathrobe, and pouring a cup of coffee.]<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />That's not... It can't be.<br />[DAVID looks up and a woman in a bathrobe comes up to him, kissing him on the lips.]<br />What's happening?<br />[turning back to SAM and DEAN]<br />Who is that?<br /> <br />SAM<br />That's David's wife. I'm sorry, Molly. 15 years ago, you and your husband hit Jonah Greeley with your car. David survived.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />What are you saying?<br /> <br />DEAN<br />We're saying there isn't just one spirit haunting highway 41. There are two. Jonah Greeley and you.<br /> <br />SAM<br />For the past 15 years, one night a year you've been appearing on that highway.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />No. That's not possible. It was our anniversary... February 22nd...<br /> <br />SAM<br />1992.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Yes.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Molly, it's 2007.<br /> <br />MOLLY<br />Oh, god.<br /><br />FLASHBACK - SAM AND DEAN POV, THE PREVIOUS NIGHT<br />INT. IMPALA - NIGHT<br /><br />DEAN<br />All right. Tell me about highway 41.<br /> <br />SAM<br />12 accidents over 15 years. Five of them fatal, all of them happening on the same night.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />So what are we looking at... interstate dead zone? Phantom hitchhiker? What?<br /> <br />SAM<br />Not quite. Year after year, witnesses said the same thing made them crash. A woman appearing in the middle of the road being chased by a man covered in blood.<br /> <br />DEAN<br />Two spooks?<br /><br />CONTINUED FLASHBACK: INT.
