Back in the hotel, Bobby calls in to let the boys know that Sam is right and the reaper was kidnaped by demons because killing a reaper under the solstice moon (which is one day away) is one of the 66 Seals. Too bad for them the reaper is invisible to the living.

So the boys call in Pamela, the psychic from the season premiere, to help perform a spell to make them temporarily dead so their spirits can walk around in the world of the dead. She has them lie down on their beds and close their eyes. That’s pretty much the start of a lot of Supernatural fans’ fantasies.

Dean and Sam wake up and are shocked to see their bodies still on the beds. It’s Ghost Sam and Ghost Dean! Pamela will have to bring them back to life, so she whispers the incantation into Dean’s ear “You have got a great ass.” Pamela’s a little saucy, and I like it.

The Ghost-chesters walk around the town and Dean is amused by his newfound ability to put his hand through his brother. They find Cole, the dead kid played by Alexander Gould, who plays the awesome Shane Botwin on Showtime’s Weeds.

Cole tells them the story about how the Black Smoke came and took away the reaper. Since I also recap Lost, it’s a bit confusing for me to see a giant pillar of black smoke and not think of that show’s monster. Maybe this means the Black Smoke Monster on Lost is actually a demon.

A loud rumble occurs and suddenly another reaper shows up, a sexy woman who knows Dean. She reminds him with a touch that it’s Tessa, the reaper who came to him in the hospital way back in the season 2 premiere, “In My Time of Dying.” Wow, it’s incredibly cool that this show bothers to bring back the same actress who had a one-episode guest spot more than two years ago,

After a trip down memory lane, she leaves them alone so they can rescue the kidnaped reaper before she comes back to take Cole. Sam talks the little kid into helping them and Dean gets to flirt with Tessa while confessing that he wishes he’d gone with her last time they met to save his dad and his brother.

Cole tells them that the Black Smoke was at the funeral home, and just then the Back Smoke storms in and takes Tessa. In order to fight it, the Ghost-chesters need to learn some ghost fighting moves.
