Did You Know?


In the scene at the vampire's lair, the song being played is "Strange Face of Love", an homage to (and directly from the soundtrack of) From Dusk Till Dawn (1996). See more »


It's entirely possible that the Colt was made for the patent was filed for and granted. Colt applied for a British patent for his revolver in 1835 and filed in American for the same invention on February 25, 1836. However, he made his first revolving gun March 5th, 1836. The Alamo fell March 6th, 1936. So the Supernatural Lore holds.

This is the original comment as posted: John says that the Colt was forged underneath Haley's Comet on the night the Alamo fell. Haley's Comet appeared on November 16 1835, the battle for the Alamo began on February 23 1836 and ended on March 6 1836. Furthermore, if we go by the date of the comet, Colt's revolver would not have even been invented yet, as he first applied for the patent on February 25 1836. See more »

great episode, shame I missed it
17 May 2012 | by overfiend_87See all my reviews

This episode doesn't appear to be on the DVD collection for season one, part 2 as disc 2 ended at 19 and the next disc, 21-22. Could be just a UK thing so I have no idea wtf is going on there.

Rant over Anyway, this episode I found very interesting as they didn't have over-romantic vampires or anything like that and the vampires are quite intimidating.

Like with other monsters in this show, they are very good about how to bring them into the real world and not make them overly powerful or anything. I quite enjoyed it and have always been a fan of vampires too.
