Dean and Sam go to Kansas to investigate the mysterious death of a man. Soon there is another weird death and they realize that both cases are connected by the pizzeria Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie. Both victims were fathers that brought their children to birthday parties in the pizzeria. In the Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie, they find that children draw their fears and expose on a mural; somehow their fears come true and kill their fathers. Sam leaves the pizzeria to protect a mother but out of the blue, he is attacked by evil clowns that are his worst childhood nightmare. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Disappointing, too plain, &^&**$$##$%
11 February 2012 | by entaggySee all my reviews

This episode is simply terribly horrible. Do not expect much out of it. Too plain, predictable, boring, etc. If the writers come up with another one like this, i'm stopping watching Supernatural all together and catch up with Seinfeld reruns. This what happens when 2 great supporting characters get killed off. I was really looking forward to watch this episode having read the 2 previous reviews. I know its a matter of taste and we all have different tastes but i think in order to really enjoy this episode u would have to be no older than disrespect intended. I really miss great plots from the previous seasons. This show definitely has a REAPER on its tail and time is running out fast. And when it dies i'm gonna burn its bones myself, i don't want no spooky ghost spin-offs.
