Fallen Idols

Dean: Not a word.
Sam: Dude, you just got whaled on by Paris Hilton.
Dean: ...Shut up.

Written by Julie Siege.

Directed by James L. Conway.

Air Date: October 8, 2009.

Sam and Dean are reunited and on the hunt again. They reach a small town and investigate a string of very strange murders. A man who has found James Dean's car, "Little Bastard", is found dead as if he has been involved in a major car crash. Another man is murdered by someone who looks just like Abraham Lincoln. Suspecting that the murders are the work of famous ghosts, the boys do research at the local wax museum, where Sam is attacked by what seems to be the ghost of Mahatma Gandhi. Shortly afterward, two girls report to the police that their friend was kidnapped by Paris Hilton, which leaves the brothers speechless. After finding peculiar seeds in the victims' stomachs, they break into the museum's construction area, where they do find Paris Hilton—who is in fact a leshi, a pagan god, in disguise, trying to settle down after its old home, a deep forest in Eastern Europe, has been cut down. By touching their possessions, the god can turn itself into famous people and kill their fans in order to feed on their blood. Sam kills it by decapitating it with an iron ax. Before leaving town, Dean tells Sam that starting the Apocalypse isn't his fault alone, as he himself had broken the first seal, and that they shouldn't think about the whole vessel thing too much but instead fight together.
