Supernatural Haiku Episode Guide, Seasons One and Two

During season two of Supernatural, I started the haiku episode guide, coming up with one haiku to describe each episode. The first two seasons are now complete, and I thought folk might enjoy them. Hopefully, if I've figured this out right, you should be able to click on the LJ cut text below to go to the full thing ...

Supernatural Episode Guide, Seasons One and Two

The Haiku Episode Guide to Supernatural
Work in progress, Copyright 2007, Bardicvoice
The first haiku for the series was essentially written by Eric Kripke: the rest are mine.
Saving people, hunting things –
The family business.

Season One

Two brothers seek Dad.
Hunting spirits, learning why
Unfaithful men die.

Evil kills campers.
Indian lore holds the key:
Burn the cannibal.

Dead in the Water
Old death in a lake
Drowns new victims for payback.
Dean bonds with sad boy.

Phantom Traveler
Demon crashing planes
Goes hunting down survivors.
Dean’s afraid to fly.

Bloody Mary
Secrets make eyes bleed,
Guilt for someone else’s death –
Why use Sam as bait?

Doppleganger kills:
Stealing shapes, downloading thoughts.
Dean’s a dead man now.

Hook Man
Campus killer strikes.
Burning old bones doesn’t work;
Where’s the silver hook?

Ancient Indian curse
Dooms brand new subdivision:
Sixty thousand bees!

Sam has “the shining.”
Nightmares take the boys back home:
Mom is waiting there.

Madhouse breeds madness.
Can an evil ghost make Sam
Kill his own brother?

Brothers fight and split.
Dean takes on a pagan god;
Sam goes after Dad.

For his brother’s life
Sam pursues a miracle.
What price is too great?

Route 666
Racist killer truck
Threatens Dean’s past one true love;
Seek out holy ground.

Sam is seeing things:
Painful visions presage death.
Why is he so cursed?

The Benders
Men are evil too.
Frantic Dean, in search of Sam,
Finds twisted people.

Murders tied to home
Lure the boys as bait for Dad.
They must part again.

Hell House
Prankster brothers rule!
Killer evil in a house
Is shaped by belief.

Something Wicked
Children are dying.
Dean blames his childhood mistake.
Now he’ll kill it dead.

A haunted painting
Kills all those who purchase it;
Beware little girls.

Dean Man’s Blood
Vampires do exist.
Dad and boys pursue their prize:
Demon-killing Colt.

Winchesters unite:
Save the children, save their friends.
War has casualties.

Devil’s Trap
Seek help, rescue Dad:
Meet The Demon face to face –
But that face is Dad’s.

Season Two

In My Time of Dying
Dying, Dean still fights;
Sam refuses to give up;
Dad will make a deal.

Everybody Loves a Clown
Dad’s loss hurts both boys.
Their hunt for a killer clown
Masks their deeper pain.

Hunters and vampires:
Things aren’t always what they seem.
Dean unleashes rage.

Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things
Hunting a zombie
Illustrates what hurts the most:
What's dead should stay dead.

Simon Said
Two children like Sam
May reveal more demon plans:
Are they all killers?

No Exit
A history hunt:
First serial killer’s ghost
Steals pretty young blondes.

The Usual Suspects
Dean winds up in jail.
Can Sam and a spirit prove
That he’s innocent?

Cross Road Blues
Crossroads are for pacts:
Sell your soul for what you want.
Would Dean make a deal?

History repeats:
Viral demon empties town.
Dean’s whole life is Sam.

John’s secret, Dean’s fear:
Save Sam, or have to kill him.
Gordon makes Sam prey.

Lonely child ghost kills.
Drunken Sam forces Dean to
A sober promise.

Botched shapeshifter hunt
Adds Sam to FBI list:
Bonnie to Dean’s Clyde.
Houses of the Holy
Spirit or angel?
When death stops evil people,
What clues to Sam’s fate?
Born Under a Bad Sign
Has Sam gone darkside?
Riding lost meat puppet Sam,
Mad Meg tortures Dean.
Tall Tales
On each other’s nerves,
Brothers miss the biggest clue:
Tricksters breed mischief.
Killer and victim
Haunt each other on a road;
Unfinished business.
How strong is your heart?
Will you save me from myself,
A fate worse than death?

Alternate Entry for Heart (the first was a cry from the heart; this one tries to be a true episode guide summary)
Werewolf's human side
Begs for death to set her free:
Can Sam bear the price?
Hollywood Babylon
Bitter scriptwriter
Conjures ghosts to take revenge:
Beware, network suits!
Folsom Prison Blues
Vigilante nurse
Kills lawbreaking cons and guards
Where the boys are jailed.
What Is and What Should Never Be
It was just a wish:
Mother, brother, home, and love.
Heroes pay the price.
All Hell Breaks Loose, Part One
Babes fed demon blood
Fight elimination rounds:
Sam dies in Dean’s arms.
All Hell Breaks Loose, Part Two
Dean’s soul buys Sam’s life.
Hell gate frees a demon horde:
“We’ve got work to do.”
