Sex And Violence
Excuse me, uh, we're a little busy here, buddy.

Written by Cathryn Humphris.

Directed by Charles Beeson.

Air Date: February 5, 2009.

Sam and Dean enter Bedford, Iowa, where three men have inexplicably beaten their wives to death. The guys realize that behind the murders is a Siren, a creature that can take different forms and desperately needs love, compelling people to kill others or themselves as a show of devotion. It looks however you want it to, but when the audience catches glimpses of its reflection, you can see how dead and ghoulish it really looks.

While investigating, the Winchesters bump into an actual FBI agent, who likes Dean's Impala, goes to the strip club with him, drinks with him and even knows his music. Sam is kept busy by a doctor, and ends up sleeping with her. Dean is convinced she's the Siren and refuses to meet up with Sam in case he's under her spell.

That whole sub-plot was a red herring however, as the FBI agent is the actual Siren. It eventually puts Sam and Dean under its spell and pits the two brothers against each other in a fight to the death. The winner will get to be with it forever.

During the fight, the brothers shout some harsh truths at each other. Dean says he's losing Sam, though whether it happened when he was in Hell or before his eyes, he doesn't know, but Sam's keeping secrets and he doesn't like it. Sam retorts that Dean is just angst-ridden, and all he goes on about is the souls he tortured in Hell, boo-hoo.

Dean is about to kill Sam with a fire ax when Bobby arrives and kills the siren.
