Official WB Description
Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles)
follow the coordinates left in their father's journal
and land in the middle of the woods where they investigate
the disappearance of several campers. The two brothers
soon learn they are dealing with a Wendigo, a creature
made famous in Native America legends. A Wendigo is a former human whose cannibalism has transformed
him into a creature with superhuman strength and speed
that feasts on human flesh.
BLACKWATER RIDGE, LOST CREEK, COLORADO- The episode opens to a campsite at night. Inside the tents 3
boys are playing video games and sending video messages.
(Gary, Brad and Tommy) Brad goes outside telling them
nature calls and we hear growls and Brad scream. Gary gets up to check and is dragged from the tent. Tommy screams and
the screen goes black.
PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA- Sam walks up to his girlfriend Jessica?s grave with flowers.
A hand reaches from her grave and grabs him. Sam wakes
from his dream in a start in Dean?s car. The brothers
talk about finding their dad and Jess?s killer and Sam
wonders why the co ordinates their dad left send them
into the middle of nowhere to Blackwater.
RANGERS VISITORS CENTER- Sam and Dean talk to
Ranger Wilkinson about Blackwater Ridge and he mistakenly
takes them for friends of a girl whose brother vanished
there. Dean decides they should go visit the girl and
tricks the ranger into helping.
HAILEY COLLINS HOME- Sam and Dean pose as
rangers and tell Hailey and her other brother, Ben they?ve
been sent to help. Hailey says Tommy, her brother hasn?t
phoned for 3 days. She shows them videos he sent to her
laptop. Sam spots something but doesn?t mention it. Dean
says he and Sam are going to Blackwater in the morning
and Hailey says she is too, to look for Tommy along with
BAR- Sam shows Dean newspaper articles that show
people have been going missing in Blackwater every 23
years. He also shows Tommy?s video again frame by frame
and there?s a fast moving shadow outside the tent. Sam
suggests they go see the only known survivor from a supposed
bear attack back in 1959.
MR SHAW, THE SURVIVORS HOUSE- Shaw tells Sam and
Dean it wasn?t a grizzly bear that attacked his family,
as it was smart enough to unlock the cabin door. He also
says it roared like no man or animal and moved like lightning.
LEAVING THE OLD MAN?S HOUSE- Sam and Dean discuss
what they?re dealing with and decide it?s something corporeal,
and that they can kill it.
THE WOODS THE NEXT DAY- Dean and Sam arrive
just as Hailey, Ben and their guide, Roy are setting out
into the forest. Hailey is suspicious of the brothers,
as they haven?t come prepared for hiking in the woods
like rangers would.
SOMEWHERE BELOW GROUND- Tommy and one of the
other boys are strung up and we see something approach
them. Tommy closes his eyes as the other boy screams and
we presume he?s been torn apart by the creature.
BACK IN THE WOODS- Roy and Dean have
words and Dean almost steps in a bear trap. Hailey confronts
Dean again and Dean confesses to her he and Sam aren?t
rangers and are looking for their missing father.
they arrive at the ridge and find Tommy and the other
boys tents ripped to shreds. Dean notes the bodies away.
Suddenly, someone screams for help and the group go to
check, when they return their packs are destroyed. Sam
and Dean conclude they?re dealing with a ?Wendigo.? They
tell the others who are sceptical, and they decide to
make camp for the night.
CAMPSITE THAT NIGHT- Dean draws Anasazi
symbols on the ground for protection. He talks to Sam
who can?t stop thinking about finding their dad. Dean
tells him they have to help others when suddenly there
are cries for help. Dean knows it?s the wendigo trying
to lure them out. Roy ignores his warnings and the wendigo
takes him and breaks his neck. (The others don?t see this)
NEXT MORNING- Sam and Dean explain
a wendigo means ?evil that devours,? and that they?ve
once been a human but they?ve at sometime been forced
to eat human flesh to survive. Dean also says Tommy may
still be alive, as wendigoes hoard food. He also says
they need to burn, not shoot it.
HIKING THROUGH WOODS- Roy?s body falls on
Hailey from the trees and everyone runs. Sam and Ben get
split up from the others and the creature takes Dean and
Hailey. Dean leaves a trail of M & M?s and Ben and
Sam follow them to a tunnel entrance. They go inside and
end up falling through the rotting floor into a pile of
skeletons. They look around and find Dean, Hailey and
Tommy hanging from the ceiling- they?re alive.
Ben cut them down, but Tommy is hurt. Dean finds two flare
guns and comes up with a plan. He sends Sam to get the
others out while he tries to goad the creature to go after
him the other way.
growls near Sam?s group and he sends Hailey and her brothers
out, knowing the wendigo wasn?t fooled by Dean?s ploy.
He shoots at the creature and misses, and it comes for
them all. (Sam has caught Hailey, Ben and Tommy up) Luckily,
Dean appears and shoots his flare, burning the creature.
RANGER STATION- Everyone tells the
cops they were attacked by a bear. Hailey thanks Dean
and then rides with Tommy and Ben in the ambulance. Dean
says he hates camping, smiles and then says they?ll find
their dad some day. Sam says yeah, but in the meantime
he?s driving! The brothers drive away into the night.
