The Winchesters continues the road to Supernatural on DVD

"We are so screwed"
                               -Dean Winchester


The Winchester brothers continue "the family business" of saving people and hunting evil in season two of Supernatural, now available on DVD.

Featuring all 22 episodes with exclusive audio commentaries, gag reels, and much more, this season finds the road getting longer -- and darker-- for Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), as they must rely on each other now more than ever.

The premiere, "In My Time of Dying", picks up where last season left off, as one brother's life hangs in the balance, leading one member of the Winchester family to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Supernatural's sophomore year finds Sam and Dean grieving over their father's death, as well as Sam's connection to the Yellow-Eyed Demon, who has plans for him and other psychic children.  This forces Dean into deciding whether to save his little brother ... or kill him.

Assisting the Winchesters in their fight against evil in season two are friends of the family such as Ellen (Samantha Ferris), owner of the Roadhouse, a rest place for hunters, her headstrong daughter Jo (Alona Tal), and computer expert Ash (Chad Lindberg).

Supernatural still has elements of Route 66 and The X-Files, but now features elements of The Fugitive, as the brothers are now wanted by the law. 

"The Usual Suspects" finds Sam and Dean arrested while investigating the death of a lawyer; Linda Blair (The Exorcist) and Jason Gedrick are the detectives assigned to the case.  In "Nightshifter", Sam and Dean go undercover in a bank to find a shapeshifter, but soon end up becoming a hostage situation, with relentless FBI Agent Henrickson (Charles Malik Whitfield) out to get our heroes -- dead or alive.  He returns in "Folsom Prison Blues", where Sam and Dean send themselves to prison to exorcise a ghost that is killing inmates.

The episodes "Bloodlust" and "Hunted" introduce recurring fellow hunter Gordon (Sterling K. Brown), who is somewhere between the series' anti-hero and anti-villain, walking a thin line between good and evil.

"What Is and What Should Never Be" centers on Dean, as he enters an alternate reality thanks to an evil genie, where the boys' mother is still alive-- and so is Sam's girlfriend Jessica, who is now engaged to Sam.   But nothing is perfect when Dean realizes that all the good that he and Sam ever did never happened, forcing him to choose between staying there and returning to reality.

The two-part finale, "All Hell Breaks Loose", features the final showdown between the Winchesters and the Yellow-Eyed Demon, setting up a brand new story arc for the new season starting in October.

Before joining the fight for season three, gear up for Supernatural's second season, now available on DVD.
