In Blue Earth, Minnesota, Pastor Jim Murphy is reading the Bible at his altar when Meg enters, ostensibly seeking solace. The priest encourages her as "Salvation was created for sinners." She begins to confess her sins to him, including the fact that she slit someone's throat and ripped his heart out, before she reveals her black eyes. Pastor Jim says he knows what she is, before he retreats in horror to an underground office fitted out with the tools of a Hunter, with research and runes spanning the walls. Meg follows him, kicking in the barred doors. The priest throws a knife at her, but Meg catches it. He demands, "What do you want?" She demands the location of John Winchester, whom he refuses to betray. She slits his throat with the knife.

In Manning, Colorado, John is sharing his research of the last 20 years with Sam and Dean of all he knows. He explains the demon trail he has been following the past year was the demon going after families with six month old babies. Sam feels guilty at being the cause of the death of both Mom and Jessica, and it turns into pain and anger; however, Dean does not allow him to wallow. John is never able to arrive in time to save the families. He explains the telltale signs that crop up the week before - cattle deaths, temperature fluctuations, electrical storms. They happened in Lawrence before Mary's death, and in Palo Alto before Jessica's death. Next, it will hit Salvation, Iowa.

John's pickup takes the lead with the Impala behind, and they reach Salvation. Abruptly, John pulls over. He has had a call from Caleb to say their friend Pastor Jim is dead from his throat being slashed and he bled out. It looks like the demon may know they are close, so they need to hurry. They plan to split up and check hospitals for infants who will soon be six months old, for that is where the demon will strike next. Sam points out it could be dozens of kids, but John is determined to check them all. Right before they get back on the road, John mourns his friend. Dean asks, "Dad?" and John cannot put it into words. His resolve hardens, and he tells the boys, "This ends, now. I'm ending it. I don't care what it takes." They climb in their vehicles and drive off.

John puts on a fake badge and enters the Salvation Women and Children's Hospital, looking for records. Sam checks on birth records at Salvation Medical Center. Dean chats up a receptionist at the second hospital, masquerading as a cop, to check records.

As Sam leaves the medical center where he has been researching birth records, he has a vision of the demon's next target. He has a vision of a kid's room, a woman with her baby, the demon, and the sound of a train as the woman looks out the window. Sam pulls out a map and tries to figure out where the house is he saw from the sound of a train. He is jogging in the park when the vision hits him again. When it is over, he looks around and realizes the house in directly in front of him, with the mother and child from the vision directly outside. Sam goes over and chats with the young mother Monica and her daughter, Rosie, claiming to be a new neighbor. He finds out that Rosie is six months old today. Unable to warn her, Sam tells Monica to take care of herself and walks away. Just then, he has another vision, in which Monica is killed by the demon in the same way his mom and Jess were!

Sam returns to Dean and John at the hotel, and tells them about his vision. John is angry that Dean had not told him before about Sam's visions. Dean points out John's unresponsiveness from previous phone calls - calling from home, calling when Dean was dying - and angrily states he would have had better chance of winning the lottery than reaching his father on the phone. John agrees reluctantly. Interrupting, Sam's phone rings and Meg, whom they thought dead from a seven story drop, demands to speak with John. Sam, at first, claims he does not know where Dad is, but she demands to speak to him now so reluctantly, Sam puts his dad on. She informs John that she knows his boys and that she murdered Jim Murphy yesterday. Today she is with another friend, Caleb. She allows Caleb to talk briefly with John as proof, before demanding the Colt. In desperation, John plays dumb and Meg promptly kills Caleb. She tells John that he declared war, and war has casualties. John threatens to kill her. She will keep killing all his friends, anyone who has helped him, given him shelter, anyone he has loved, until he hands over the Colt. Capitulating, John agrees to meet her at a warehouse in Lincoln. She tells him at midnight for the trade, but he protests he cannot make it. She tells him his friends die then, and if he does decide to show up, come alone. The boys protest handing the gun over, but John has a plan: they will use a substitute gun picked up at an antique store since Meg does not know what the real one looks like. He only needs to buy a few hours for Dean and Sam to kill The Demon and save that family. In an emotional revelation, he admits again that he needs this job to finally be over: to stop losing people they love, for Sam to go to school, for Dean to have a home, and for Mary to be alive.

When Dean returns with the fake Colt, he points out that it is a trap, although John promises he has a whole arsenal. Dean pleads with John to not throw his life away, as he is no good to them dead. John tells them to do the same. He hands over the real Colt, reminding them they only have four bullets and to make every shot count. He is not going to be in this final fight, so the task of killing the demon is given to the boys, to finish the job he started. Saying they will see each other soon, John drives away in his pickup.

John arrives in Lincoln, Nebraska, to meet Meg. He cases the territory for escape routes, through access tunnels, possible traps, and he finds a reservoir to bless.

Dean and Sam talk while watching the Holt house. Sam wonders if they could get the family out by saying there is a gas leak, or by telling the truth. Dean reminds him they can only wait for The Demon to show, and get it before it gets the family. Dean would feel better backing Dad, while Sam would feel better if Dad was backing them up.

John hides while Meg looks around, and after she leaves he climbs the water tower. He opens the hatch, pulls out a rosary, and blesses the water.

Sam says it does not seem real that they are finally facing The Demon. He thanks Dean for everything, because Dean always had his back and he could count on his brother, just in case anything happens to him. Dean gets upset, not wanting to hear it. He says nothing is going to happen to anyone- not them, not the family, nobody - except The Demon!

John confronts Meg, who expresses sarcastic sadness over not killing anyone else, and comments she thought he would be... taller. John does not respond to her needling him, and disappointed, she asks for the gun. Back and forth they go, trying to get the upper hand verbally, before John mentions shooting her. She invites him to, telling him there is more. A taciturn demon named Tom walks from the shadows to join Meg. John asks who he was, and Meg tells him he is not as much fun as her, and demands the gun. John hands the gun to Meg and she in turn hands it off to Tom, asking if he thinks it is the real thing. Without warning, he shoots Meg. She is pissed but she does not die. In shock and anger, Meg rounds on John now that it is obvious the gun is not the real Colt. John pretends he did not know the gun was not real. Meg claims she is not in the mood because she has just been shot, and John tosses back that it is a good thing the gun was not real. Meg tells him that was funny, and threatens to strip the skin from his bones. Steam escaping distracts the demons momentarily, and John makes a run for it! He races through the access tunnels he had previously cased. As he dashes down one, he stops and opens a valve, thereby spraying the holy water he prepared earlier. Tom and Meg cannot pass through it. Meg calls out that the holy water is real cute. John smiles at them, and takes off.

Dean tries calling his dad, but there is no answer. Sam notices the radio static. The wind has whipped up, and lights on the street are going on and off. The Demon is here! The boys make a dash for the house.

Outside the building, John runs back to find his truck's tires have been slashed. He glances around, then takes off running once more down a different alleyway, looking for some way to escape or hide.

The boys break into the house in attempt to save Monica and Rosie, but Monica's husband, Charlie, attacks them thinking they are burglars. Dean takes care of Charlie, pinning him against the wall trying to calm him down. Instead, Charlie calls up to Monica to get the baby! Dean knocks Charlie out, and heads outside. Monica heads for the nursery and interrupts The Demon, who slams her against the wall and pushes her up to the ceiling. Racing to the nursery, Sam faces The Demon over Rosie's crib. After hesitating for a second, Sam fires off a shot, but The Demon vanishes too fast. Sam quickly grabs Monica and drags her out, assuring her that Dean has the baby, while Dean grabs Rosie just before her crib bursts into flames.

John finds himself in a dead end and tries to make a cell call, but is pinned to the wall by Tom. John struggles, yelling in frustration and pain, as he is slid up the wall. Tom, smiling, stands in front of him. John is caught!

The nursery window explodes outwards in a fireball, as Sam with Monica come coughing out of the front door. Charlie demands they get away from his family, as Dean with Rosie joins the family on the front lawn. Monica declares they saved them, and takes Rosie from Dean, thanking them both. The boys turn dejectedly back to the house, and Sam looks up and sees The Demon within the flames. He wants to go inside and fight it, but Dean pulls him back, declaring it is suicide. Sam, however, does not care - but Dean does. The Demon disappears.

Back at the hotel room, while is Dean is anxiously trying to contact John, Sam is angry that Dean stopped him from going after The Demon. Dean confronts him about his desire for revenge and self-sacrifice, stating that if it means Sam getting himself killed, he hopes they never find it. Sam reminds Dean that it killed Jess and Mom. Dean replied that it does not matter what they do, Jess and Mom were gone and are never coming back. Sam's anger boils over and he pushes Dean into the wall. Dean quietly tells Sam an emotional confession, that he is barely holding it together, and the three of them is all they have. Shocking Sam into the present, his focus shifts back to Dad, and he releases Dean to try his father's phone again.

This time, Meg answers. She tells Dean that they screwed up, and promises, "You're never going to see your father again." Dean looks at Sam with determination, while Sam returns the look with panic.

Writing the Episode

  • "I wanted to see all the characters mentioned throughout the season, so I decided to just kill of everyone," writer Sera Gamble confides. Her co-writer, Raelle Tucker, expresses the same deadly curiosity. "That's what I wanted to do because secretly I just wanted to meet them. And I knew that the only way that [Eric Kripke] was going to let me meet them all is if I killed them all. The hardest thing about doing an episode about all their friends being hunted down is, what are our guys doing while that's happening? So then we realized that it was going to be an episode that was gonna have two whole separate stories going on at once, and that's a hell of a thing to try to break and write. But when we finally figured out that it was about a child and replay of 'The Pilot' in a certain way, we knew we'd stumbled onto the right thing. It was like a window that flew wide open to all this emotional stuff with the guys. It just brought back all the themes of the show and tied the season up into a nice big bow."Supernatural The Official Companion Season 1, p. 110
  • "Nobody on staff knew that it [Colt] was happening yet." They knew somehow the Winchesters had to fight the demon, but what with? "And Sera and I were trying to come up with our own version of what we could do to it. We were getting really frustrated and finally somebody walked in and said, 'We have the perfect weapon.' And the Colt just seems so appropriate for the show. It has an old west kind of feel to it. It's that other layer of, now the story makes sense - we're not just killing your friends because we hate your friends and we want to get back at you (not that that wouldn't be enough reason), we now had something to hold hostage." [Raelle Tucker] As much as they loved getting the Colt, with it being central to two other scripts, [Sera] Gamble points out that it's "challenging to being the middle part of a story arc."Supernatural The Official Companion Season 1, p. 111
  • Composer Chris Lennertz had fun playing off all the themes from the season that were brought back in this episode. "I sort of threw everything but the kitchen sink into that episode. There was a little bit of the elements from all the episodes."Supernatural The Official Companion Season 1, p. 113

Casting Characters


  • "Bob's got an excellent visual eye and he's a hell of a director. And he's the most macho dude ever. Y'know, like I'm a geek reading comic books and he's drinking a Jack Daniels on the rocks on his way to the golf course; he's just a real man surrounded by all these geeks. His episodes have this masculine kind of reserve to them. I'll sometimes overwrite a scene and the characters will get too weepy and sentimental with each other, and he rewrites the dialogue so you're still getting the depth and feeling but it's kind of much more macho and it's not overly sentimental. It's like a good Clint Eastwood movie, and he brings that to his directing." - Eric KripkeSupernatural The Official Companion Season 1, p. 112-113
  • Meg was brought back, but she had evolved. "The biggest thing for her was she was traveling and we really wanted her to look like a girl that the boys would be interested in. They always say, 'Scary Just Got Sexy', about our show, and we do do a little bit of sexy, for sure, but I find with [Supernatural's] producers, they tend to keep the people more real than you do sometimes on young networks where more sex is hanging out. They wanted her to look like she would be appealing, but without necessarily having to be overtly sexual. She's a lovely girl, so we worked off that. As she got stronger, the yellow leather jacket was one that we bought and made to work for her. Then the little red jacket, as she became more demonic, was one that I designed and we built for her, and that was to reflect a little more of her power as she shifted." - Costume designer Diane WidasSupernatural The Official Companion Season 1, p. 113


  • The Meaning of the Episode Title: "Salvation" names the the setting.
  • The subtitles on the DVD sections are:
    1. Pastor Jim.
    2. The demon is coming.
    3. Meeting at midnight.
    4. Holy water.
    5. If a fiend answers...
    6. End Credits.
  • Kansas' "Carry On My Wayward Son" reappears in later seasons at the start of the last episode of each season. Here, it's the second to last instead.
  • Pastor Jim is most likely of the Anglican faith, since there were prayer votive candles but no statues or icons with the candles, plus his clergy collar.
  • Meg expresses that major league demons are not prone to the same dangers as lower ranking demons, as seen in her ability to enter hallowed ground.
  • There is an Aquarian Star with other sigils in the points on the wall behind Meg after she bursts through the barricade to get into Jim Murphy's hunter room. There are other sigils on the wall as well - one partial circle looks like part of a Devil's Trap.
  • There is a possibility Pastor Jim threw an ancient demon-killing knife of the Kurds at Meg, but missed. There are sigils on the blade, and a regular knife would do nothing against a demon, so he would defend himself with something that would hurt/kill a demon.
  • John stays in the Sleep Easy Motel. This could be considered a reference to The Simpsons' episode "The Cartridge Family." In this episode, Marge and the children stay at the Sleep Eazy Motel, but the neon sign flickers, appearing to read Sle__ _azy Motel.
  • In John's motel room, among various maps and notes:
    USA Weather Report
    map of pressurized areas
    Handwritten note:

    A map of the U.S., with X's marked in Southwest Pennsylvania, northern North Carolina, and eastern Tennessee, circled, arrow pointing northwest.

    Sleep (^un) Easy Motel notepad:
    Doodle of figure, dark head and shoulders, halo, holding circular object.

    Sticky note on typewritten paper : SULPHER TRACE (sic)

    Road map of the U.S., with map, two hand drawn X's shown: one in California near Palo Alto, one in Arizona.
  • The "Leaving Salvation" sign quote, "Are you ready for Judgement Day?", references "JW 2:27". Because that cannot be a biblical reference as that book and verse do not exist, it is likely a message meant for John Winchester.
  • According to John, Salvation has two hospitals and one Health Center. John goes to Salvation Women's & Children's Hospital and Sam goes to Salvation Iowa Medical Center, which leaves the second hospital for Dean.
  • At Salvation Hospital when John is rummaging through his false IDs one that appears is for the Oklahoma City, OK, morgue. There was also a fake VISA card in the box.
  • When Dean talks to the receptionist in the hospital, there is a poster behind her that reads: "Today is the first day of the rest of your life."
  • The clock stops at 8:42pm in Sam's vision.
  • John knew Sam had some psychic ability, from Home, when Missouri mentions it as she walks into her home where he is sitting. It's possible Missouri explained to John that Sam knew the poltergeist was there, but she didn't know about Sam's visions.
  • Rosie Holt was born January 14, 2006 - exactly six months before.
  • John lies to Meg, obviously, about the amount of time for him to drive to Lincoln. In reality, (since Salvation is a fictional city) it could have taken John anywhere from 1 hour to 5 hours.
  • The location of the warehouse where John is supposed to meet Meg, Wabash and Lake, is used several times in The Matrix trilogy.
  • Dean asks Sam how many times a gas leak story has worked for them. This is probably a reference to Bugs, where Dean poses as a Gas Company employee, trying to use a gas leak as an excuse for evacuation.
  • When Sam slams Dean against the wall, it mirrors the scene in the Pilot where Dean slams Sam against the bridge when he questions the family mission.
  • Inside the Legend: Salvation


  • Meg is revealed to have survived the fall from Shadow, as she is a demon.
  • Dean and Sam are working with John again.
  • Sam has another vision.
  • Dean mentions two instances John never answered the phone when they tried to call - Dean tried to call in Home when they went back to their childhood home, and Sam tried to call in Faith, when Dean was dying.


  • The sign for Salvation misspells Lotto as "Loto." The jackpot is $1.7-million.
  • There is a calendar on the wall in the hotel room John and the boys stay in; the month is unclear but it starts on a Wednesday and ends on a Friday with 31 days. The only month with that occurrence in 2006 was March.
  • At the hospital, Sam is supposed to be making a list of all babies who will be six months old that week, but the birth certificate in front of him has a date of May 2nd, 1998. Also of note: The birth certificate is signed by "Robert Leader, Res." Robert Leader is one of the set designers in the art department on the show.
  • When Dean talks to the clerk in the healthcare facility, the calendar behind her indicates the day is the Monday the 20th. The only months that occurred the 20th that fell on a Monday in 2006 were February, March and November. Since we know Hell House occurred in early June and In My Time of Dying ends on July 19th, none of those months are feasible.
  • John blesses the water in the tank to make it holy water. According to Catholic doctrine, only an ordained priest can do this.
  • Monica messed her line up, after the boys saved them from the nursery. She says, "No, Charlie don't! They saved us." But her next line is - "I mean, they saved us." This indicates her first line was supposed to have been, "No, Charlie don't! They saved me."


Meg: Well. I've lied. A lot. I've stolen. I've lusted. And the other day I met this man. A nice guy, you know? We had a really good chat, sort of like this...
(Pastor Jim smiles.)
Meg: then I slit his throat and ripped his heart out through his chest.
(Meg blinks and her eyes go black. Pastor Jim is shocked.)
Meg: Does that make me a bad person?
Sam: So basically, this demon is going after these kids, for some reason. The same way it came for me? So Mom's death... Jessica? It's all 'cause of me?
Dean: We don't know that Sam.
Sam: (upset) Oh really? 'Cause I'd say we're pretty damn sure, Dean.
Dean: (frustrated) For the last time, what happened to them is not your fault!
Sam: (shouting) Yeah, you're right! It's not my fault! But it's my problem!
Dean: No, it's not your problem! It's our problem!
John: Okay. That's enough.
John: There's signs. Look, it took me a while to see the pattern but in the days before these fires, signs crop up in an area. Cattle deaths, uh, temperature fluctuations, electrical storms. And then I went back and checked, and...
Dean: These things happened in Lawrence.
(John nods.)
John: A week before your mother died.
(John turns to Sam.)
John: And in Palo Alto... before Jessica. And these signs, they're starting again.
(Sam is fighting tears, but he wants to get the demon.)
Sam: Where?
John: Salvation, Iowa.
John: (flatly) A vision.
Sam: (slowly, painfully) Yes. I saw the demon burning a woman on the ceiling.
Dean: It started out as nightmares, and then it started happenin' while he was awake.
Sam: (wincing) Yeah. It's like - I don't know - it's like the closer I get to anything involving the demon, the stronger the visions get.
John: (to Dean) Alright. When were you going to tell me about this?
(Sam and Dean stop and turn to look at John.)
Dean: We didn't know what it meant.
John: Alright, something like this starts happenin' to your brother, you pick up the phone and you call me.
(Dean dumps the coffee jug and cup back on the counter and strides toward John.)
Dean: Call you? Are you kiddin' me? Dad, I called you from Lawrence, alright? (accusatory) Sam called you when I was dying. I mean, gettin' you on the phone? I got a better chance of winning the lottery!
Sam: You want us to stay here... and kill this demon by ourselves?
John: No, Sam. I want to stop losing people we love. I want you to go to school, I want-I want Dean to have a home.
(John turns away from the boys, fighting tears, voice breaking.)
John: I want Mary alive. It's just -
(John turns back.)
John: I just want this to be over.
Meg: You hear that? That's the sound of your friend dying. Now let's try this again. We know you have the gun, John, word travels fast. So as far as we're concerned, you just declared war. And this is what war looks like. It has casualties.
John: All right listen to me. They made the bullets special for this Colt. There's only four of 'em left. Without 'em this gun is useless. You make every shot count.
Sam: Yes sir.
John: Been waitin' a long time for this fight. Now it's here. I'm not gonna be in it. It's up to you boys, now. It's your fight, you finish this. You finish what I started. You understand?
Sam: I wanna thank ya.
(Dean is confused.)
Dean: For what?
Sam: For everything. You've always had my back, you know? Even when I couldn't count on anyone, I could always count on you. And ah... I don't know, I just wanted to let you know. Just in case.
Dean: Whoa whoa whoa, are you kiddin' me?
Sam: What?
Dean: Don't say just in case somethin' happens to you. I don't wanna hear that freakin' speech man. Nobody's dying tonight. Not us, not that family. Nobody. Except that demon. That evil son of a bitch inn't getting any older than tonight, you understand me?
Meg: You shot me! I can't believe you just shot me!!
Meg: You're dead John. Your boys are dead.
(John backs slowly away.)
John: I've never used the gun. How could I know it wouldn't work?
(Meg advances.)
Meg: I'm so not in the mood for this! I've just been shot!
John: Well then, I guess you're lucky the gun wasn't real.
Meg: That's funny, John. We're going to strip the skin from your bones, but that was funny.
Sam: It's still in there!
(Dean grabs Sam.)
Dean: Sam. Sam, no!
(Sam struggles against Dean.)
Sam: Dean! Let me go, it's still in there!
Dean: It's burning to the ground! It's suicide!
Sam: (yelling) I don't care!
Dean: I do!
Dean: So what, you're just willing to sacrifice yourself, is that it?
Sam: Yeah. Yeah, you're damn right I am.
Dean: Well, that's not going to happen, not as long as I'm around.
Sam: What the hell are you talking about, Dean? We've been searching for this demon our whole lives. It's the only thing we've ever cared about.
Dean: Sam I wanna waste it. I do. Okay? But it's not worth dying over.
Sam: What?
Dean: I mean it. If huntin' this demon means gettin' yourself killed... then I hope we never find the damn thing.
Sam: That thing killed Jess. That thing killed Mom.
Dean: You said yourself once, that no matter what we do, they're gone, and they're never comin' back.
(Sam totally loses it, grabs Dean and shoves him hard against the wall.)
Sam: (angry and upset) Don't you say that, not you! Not after all this - don't you say that!
