Point of view: For the most part CW’s Supernatural is third person limited. There are certain times in the episode were we get to see others points of view, but we don’t know what is going on. The show follows Dean and Sam Winchester’s perspective which means we only know what they know. The first episode focuses on the brothers trying to find their father. It is unknown to the viewers where John is or why he disappeared. Perhaps if the show was in a different point of view the audience would know. However because it is not we only know the story as Sam and Dean do. Characters: Sam and Dean are the two most important characters of the show. They are brothers Dean being the older. Dean is at first glance a hard headed misfit. He is clearly…show more content…

The main difference between our America and Supernatural’s America is monsters are real. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, angels, Pagan gods, and every other supernatural creature exists. These monsters for the most part are malicious and try to hurt, if not kill, people; and even though they do exist, for the most part the average joe is not aware they are really. There are some that do know they exist and they try to find and stop these monsters. They are known as hunters and often in order to get details about whatever case they are working they must pose as authority figures (including but not limited to FBI, priests, Homeland security, and police detectives).

The journal itself represents knowledge and a guide. Sam and Dean use to to research the woman in white and they later find coordinates to Lost Creek, sending them there to look for their dad. Another symbol would be the dark. Whenever the woman in white strikes it is at night and when Mary and Jess were killed it was a night. The dark represents evil, the unknown, and in most cases death.
