Sam and Dean investigate a string of gruesome murders and discover the Egyptian god Osiris is behind the deaths. The vengeful god is putting people on trial for their past mistakes and killing them if found guilty. Osiris homes in on Dean's guilt and decides he's the next to stand trial. Sam steps in as Dean's lawyer, but both brothers are unprepared when Osiris calls an unexpected witness - Jo.

Another excellent short story for an episode. This one does connect to other stories and forebodes things to come, but it stands on its own as well.

I wish Osiris had spoken in an Egyptian accent however: at least he looked the part.

Me too, I reckoned it would have been their dad!

A clever episode, dealing with Dean's heavy guilt complex, and on closer inspection finding that many situations were beyond his control and he didn't have to feel guilty for it. Love how even Ancient Egyptian Gods are around making life hell for the Winchesters!

I loved the way Sam turned up with the ram's horn, he must have told the Rabbi the truth of why he wanted it and the Rabbi didn't bat an eyelid. The Jewish people had enough of a run in with the Ancient Egyptians in their early history, so he probably wasn't surprised with a situation like this turning up! :D

Bobby with his view of stabbing Osiris with the ram's horn only keeping him out of the picture for a couple of centuries; saying that it can be 'the guys in spacesuits problem' made me chuckle.

Same here. But, Sam will eventually find out. He has to.

It will probably happen when we least expect it.
