* TelevisionGeography: Richardson, Texas is a rather rich and developed area, right next to Dallas. Not the small podunk town that has only a small fast food joint to hang out in or a small farm cabin in which could be a haunted house. Sam and Dean would have had to go to clubs in downtown Dallas or to major hangouts to talk with teenagers in the area. Nor is I-35, north of Dallas, a small two-lane highway, but instead a major highway all the way to the Oklahoma border.

The brothers investigate a series of mysterious deaths in Chicago, Illinois, where all the victims are from their home town [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence,_Kansas Lawrence, Kansas.]] While investigating, Sam runs into [[Characters/SupernaturalDemons Meg]], whom he met when he decided to [[Recap/SupernaturalS01E11Scarecrow strike out on his own]] because he was tired of following Dean's and his father's orders. Sam thinks this is a too great a coincidence, but Dean's research reveals that Meg Masters does appear to be the woman from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andover,_Massachusetts Andover, Massachusetts,]] she claims to be. His research also uncovers that the murders are committed by shadow spirits called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daeva daevas.]] Sam trails Meg and discovers that she is responsible for summoning the daevas. When they confront her, it's revealed that the whole thing was a trap to lure out their father [[Characters/SupernaturalTheWinchesters John.]] Sam and Dean manage to turn the daevas against Meg, and when they return to their motel room, they find John waiting for them. The daevas attack again and the Winchesters barely escape. Dean realizes that them staying with John puts them all in greater danger, since John drops his guard around his sons, so John leaves on his own.
