Dean and Sam read on the news that someone or something had ripped the hearts out of two persons in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and they decide to stop seeking Kevin out for a while to investigate the bizarre murders. They learn that both suspects had been submitted to a transplant of organs, eye and kidney, and the donor was the same person, the football player Brick Holmes that died in a car crash. They head to Boulder, Colorado, posing as FBI agents and interview Brick's mother Eleanor Holmes that gives vague replies. The Winchester brother seeks out who else received Brick's organs and later they break into his house, where they find a hidden room with a secret.

Dean Winchester: Wow. Guy goes to Purgatory for a year, all hell breaks loose. Check this out. Jogger in Minneapolis gets his heart ripped out.
Sam Winchester: I'm guessing literally.
Dean Winchester: Only way that interests me. And then, there's another article from six months ago. Same thing happens, also in Minneapolis. What's that tell us?
Sam Winchester: Stay out of Minneapolis.

So Jessica's now chopped brains on toast?
25 April 2019 | by StorieLuverSee all my reviews

Basically your average monster-of-the-week episode, very reminiscent of the early seasons. Since the overall plot of this particular episode was nothing major, it allowed me to focus on the little details, particularly where the boys' heads are at in this episode: Dean- Dean is back in the game! After Season 7, with Sam and Bobby both worried that Dean had lost his edge and that he was going to end up killed as a result, Dean acknowledges that his time in Purgatory has shown him that killing monsters is what he does best. Sam- We're now back to the same Sam we had in Season 1, the one who was desperate to give up hunting and live a normal life. It's frustrating to hear him rant about how his past year without Dean gave him "something he's never had before" though...isn't that EXACTLY what he had at Stamford for SEVERAL years with Jessica? Has he forgotten all about her? It was disheartening to listen to him try to convince Dean that he didn't need him around and that Dean should start preparing to continue hunting on his own.
