Wishful Thinking

Written by Ben Edlund.

Directed by Robert Singer.

Air Date: November 6, 2008.

Sam and Dean investigate Concrete, Washington, where the wishing well really works. A teddy bear comes to life, a boy who is always bullied gets Super Strength, someone wins the lottery, and the town geek gets a hot girlfriend. The brothers realize that while everyone is happy now, the end result will be disastrous. They find that the cause of the wishes is a magic coin that causes a fountain to become a real wishing well and that the only way to reverse the wishes is for the person who put the coin there to remove it.
