You get premonitions of people about to die?

Death visions?


The demonon said he had plans for me.

Do you have any idea what he meant by that?

no !

I want you to watch out for Sammy,okay?

Did he say anything to you?


I can't talk about this to Sammy.

I've got to keep my game face on.

You're on edge, you're erratic!

except for when you're hunting.

'cause then,you're downright scary.

"the truth is,i'm not handling it very well.

you're tail spinning,man,"and you won't let me help you.



no,you're not gonna -- no,i swear!

it's not in me!


we're all gonna die.

i saw a dark room,some people,and a guy tied to a chair.

and i ventilated him?


you thought there wassomething inside him.

"a demon?"was he possessed?

I don't know.

all your weirdo visions are always tied to "the yellow-eyed demon.

was there any black smoke?

did we try to exorcise him?



you just plugged him.

that's it.

i sure hope so.

what does that mean?

i'm not gonna "waste an innocent man.

i wouldn't.

i never said you would.


look,we don't "know what it is.

but whatever it is,that guyininhe chair is a part of it.

so,let's find himand see what's w wt.



he was there.



can i help you?


billy gibbons,frank beard.u.s.marshals.

what's this about?

we're looking for someone.

if it is a possession,there could be more.

"it could be likea freaking shriner convention.

of course,that's one wayto wipe out a town -- !

you take it "from the inside.

"we didn't see any "of the demon smoke with tanner or any of the other usual signs.

something g rned him into a monster.

some can cause dementia,"but not that kind of violence.

and besides,s,i've never heard of one that did this to the blood.

"did what?

there's thth weird residue.

if i didn't know better,!

i'd say it was sulfur.




road's closed.

"something going around out there.

who told you that?

county sheriff.

is he here?

now,during the attack,!

do you remember -- !

did you have anynyirect contact "with their blood?

oh,my god.

beverly,i don't know what to think,"but with your permission,"we'll take a blood sample.

let's just take it easybefore we kill each other.

what's going on withthverybody?

i don't know.

"my neighbor,

you've got a neighbor "named

not anymore.

he came at me with a hatchet.

i put him down.

"he's not the only one.

"i mean,it's happeningto everyone.

i'm heading to doc's place.

there's still "some people left.

i'm getting the hell out.

there's no way out.

they got the bridge covered.

don't believe you.

"fine,stay here.

be my guest.

well,this ought to be "a relaxing drive.

what if we all have it?

what if we all go crazy?

you've got to stay calm.

all we can do is wait.

the marshal "is bringing help.

"i can't.

i've got to go.

"did you guys get to a phone?


"i'm gonna have a word.

doc's inside.

all right.

"what's going on "out there,dean?

i feel like chuck heston in "the omega man.

sarge is the only sane personi could find.

what are we dealing with?do you know?

yeah,doc thinks it's a virus.


what do you think?

i think she's right.


and i think the infected are trying to infect otherswith blood-to-blood contact.

Oh, I guess this better, the virus leaves traces of sulfur in the blood.

a demonic virus?

"more like demonic germ warfare.

at least it explains why i've been having visions.

"it's like a biblical plague.

you don't knowhow right you are,dean.

"i've been pouring "througugdad's journal.

"i found something about the roanoke colony.

dad always had a theory "about "croatoan.

he thoughtit was a demon's name -- sometimes known as daevaor reshef -- "a demon of plague and pestilence.

well,that's terrific.

why here?why now?

i have no idea.

but,dean,who knows "how far this thing can spread?

we've got to get out of here.

"we've got to warn people.

they've got one.

in here.

what do you mean?

the wife -- she's infected.

we've got to take care "of this.

we can't just leave her "in there.

my neighbors -- "they were strong.

the longer we wait,the stronger she'll get.

"you're gonna kill beverly tanner?

doctor,could there "be any treatment?

"some kind of cure "for this?

"can you cure it?

"i don't even knowwhat "it" is.

it's a matter of timebefore she breaks through.

you can't shoot her like an animal.


what are you doing?

mark,it's them.

they locked me in here.

they tried to kill me.

"they're infected,not me.


you've known me all your life.


are you sure she's one of them?



is ththe any on me?am i okay?

you're're okay.

why are we staying here?

please,let's just go.

"we can't,'cause those things are everywhere.


why is this happening?

she's right about one thing.

we can't stay here.

we've got to get out of here,get to the roadhouse,let people know what's'soming.

that's a good point.

"Night of the living dead" didn't exactly end pretty

How much do we got a choice?

"lots of folks "up here are good with rifles.

"even w wh all your hardware,we're easy targets.

"so,unless yououe got some explosives...

we could make some.

no.what the hell?no!

doc,any way to know for sure?any test?

"i've studied bevevly's blood "work backwards and forwards.

My mom?

it took three hours for the viruruto incubate.

"sulfur didn't appearin the blood until then,!

so,no,there would be no way of knowing.

not until "afr duane...


dean,i've got to talkto you.


"sit in that chair over there.

this is s vision,dean.

it's happening.

"yeah,i figured.

we don't knowif he's infected or not.

think we're pretty damn sure.

guy shows up out of nowhere,cut on his leg,"his whole familyis infected.

we should keep him tied up,and we should wait and see

For what? for him to hulk out,infect somebody else?


i'm not happy about this,but it's a tough job,and you know that.

it's supposed to be tough.

It's supposed to be tough, Dean!
We're supposed to struggle with this.

"whatoes that buy us?

a clear conscience,"for one.

it's too late for that.

what the hellhas happened to you?
