* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Molly asks them what they're hunting, Deans says "Ghosts." ''Plural'', rather than "a ghost," which would be the expected line if they were only after Jonah Greely.



* WrongGenreSavvy: Molly assumes Dean and Sam are serial killers or something along that line when she sees all the weapons in the trunk of the Impala, but is fairly easily convinced that they're ghost hunters by Dean's blunt explanation with Sam's gentler additions.

* LogicalWeakness[=/=]WeaksauceWeakness: Ghosts' susceptibility to salt is explained, turning a WeaksauceWeakness into a logical one. Turns out that salt, as a symbol of purity, repels the impure, like ghosts and demons. According to Sam, it's for much the same reason as throwing salt over your shoulder.

Dean and Sam are driving along Highway 41 near [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nevada_City,_California Nevada City, California]] when a woman runs out in front of the Impala screaming for help. Dean slams on the brakes, halting the car just before hitting the woman, and Sam rolls down the passenger-side window and asks the woman what happened. She explains that her name is Molly [=McNamara=], and she was in car accident when she swerved to miss a man standing in the middle of the road. When she came to after the accident, her husband was missing. She started looking for her husband in the woods, but then came across the man she swerved to miss. This man had horrific wounds and started chasing her through the woods. Sam tries to convince her to let them take her someplace safe, but she will not leave until they find her husband and asks them to take her back to her car.

Dean opens the trunk of the Impala and starts loading a sawed-off shotgun with rock salt. Molly freaks out when she sees the weapons in the trunk. Sam and Dean explain to her that it is no accident they found her, and that they are hunting the ghost of [[Characters/SupernaturalGhosts Jonah Greely]] who haunts this stretch of highway each year on the anniversary of his death 15 years ago. They convince Molly to help them find Jonah Greely's body so they can put him to rest. As they start searching in the woods, Molly hears a man--who she thinks is her husband--call out for help, goes looking for him, and is caught by the spirit of Jonah Greely. Dean shoots the spirit with rock salt and rescues her.

They find the abandoned home of Jonah Greely and start searching it for any records of where his body is buried. Dean finds a hidden room which contains the dead body of Jonah's wife, Marion Greely, hanging from the ceiling by her neck. Sam and Dean cut her down and bury her body. Molly overhears Sam and Dean talking about her husband, but before she can get any information out of them "The House of the Rising Sun" starts to play on the unplugged radio in the Greely home. The pane of glass in the kitchen door then frosts over revealing the words, "SHE'S MINE". Jonah Greely then smashes the window and drags Molly through it. Sam and Dean chase after him, but can't find him or Molly.

Sam and Dean open up a scrapbook looking for a clue about where Jonah Greely's body is buried. Sam notices a picture of the hunting shed taken a couple of weeks before Jonah died: Jonah and Marion standing in front of the shed in a spot where a tree now stands. Sam realizes the tree must have been planted as a grave marker, and they take off for the hunting shed. As they approach, they hear Molly screaming from inside the shed. Dean goes to help her while Sam works on digging up Jonah's body. Jonah has Molly hanging from a hook in the shed and is using his nails to rip into her skin. Dean shoots him with rock salt, but Jonah reappears behind Dean and tosses him against a wall. As Jonah approaches Dean with a knife, Jonah goes up in flames because Sam has found, salted, and burned his bones.

Dean and Sam then convince Molly to leave with them in the Impala, saying they'll take her to see her husband. They pull up to a house and see David drinking coffee in a bathrobe as another woman kisses him. Sam and Dean explain to [[Characters/SupernaturalGhosts Molly]] that she died in the car accident 15 years ago and that Jonah tortured her for one night every year because she was the one that killed him. Molly wants to talk to her husband, but Sam and Dean convince her that he has moved on and now it is time for her to move on. Molly accepts this and dissolves in light as the sun rises.
