After last week's Paris Hilton-episode
is totally raising the bar for craziness with more myths, fairy tales and urban legends. A true blue SPN fan would recall that Sam and Dean already encountered a somewhat similar dilemma in the third season episode called "Bedtime Stories," where in fairy tales such as Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Three Little Pigs and Hansel and Gretel come to life when a the spirit of a young girl, poisoned by her stepmother and trapped in a coma, becomes angrier as more time passes. This time, however, the Winchester boys are facing a much a bigger threat considering that they're dealing with someone who's more powerful, not to mention conscious and alive.
"I Believe The Children Are Our Future," the sixth episode of Supernatural
's fifth season, kicks off with Sam and Dean investigating a series of odd cases involving a creepy Tooth Fairy and stomach ulcers from mixing Pop Rocks and Coke. This baffling reality leads them to an 11-year-old boy named Jesse (guest star Gattlin Griffith), who seems to be wise beyond his years. Oh and he also has the ability to make everything he believes come true.Check out a video clip from tonight's episode here
Evidently, Jesse was adopted as a baby and remains at a loss by his unusual powers. Meanwhile, Castiel isn't happy with this discover and tells Sam and Dan that Jesse is a serious threat and needs to be eliminated. As creepy as this child may be, I don't think it would come to that point though. As hinted a couple of months ago
, Jesse will be appearing in a recurring capacity so it would be interesting to see how the Winchesters resolve this episode without killing the boy, or if they do, how Jesse will return after being killed off.
