|Synopsis=
'''[[Lawrence, Kansas]] - 22 years ago(1983)'''<br>
It is a happy family scene as [[Mary]] and [[John Winchester]] put their children, six-month-old [[Sam]] and four-year-old [[Dean]], to bed. Later, Mary investigates a sound coming from Sam’s nursery. She sees a figure standing over his crib and assumes it is John, but when she realizes it isn’t her husband she rushes back in. John, who was asleep in the living room, hears Mary's screams and rushes to the nursery, only to find her pinned to the ceiling with a deep wound across her belly. As he stares in shock, flames engulf Mary and the room. John hands the baby to Dean and tells him to run outside before trying in vain to save his wife. The scene ends with John and the boys sitting on the hood of their [[Impala]] as firemen tend to their burning house.
'''Present Day(2005)'''<br>
It is Halloween and Sam and his girlfriend, [[Jess]], go out for drinks to celebrate his good LSAT score, which should guarantee him a place in law school. Later that night, Sam awakens to the sound of someone breaking into their apartment. He wrestles with the intruder, only to discover that it is his older brother, Dean. The brothers haven’t spoken for [[Canon Discrepancies|some time]], and Dean is only turning up now because their father has gone missing on what Dean calls a "hunting trip."

:1. In the teaser [[John]] hands [[Sam]] to [[Dean]] and says "take your brother outside as fast as you can, and don’t look back." This is repeated in [[1.09 Home]] when Sam hands [[Ritchie]] to his sister [[Sari]] and repeats the same words.
:2. The sequence of Dean breaking into the apartment and wrestling with Sam is repeated in [[2.20 What Is and What Should Never Be]] when, in the [[wishverse]], Sam tackles Dean as he breaks into the family home.
:3. The exchange when Dean tells Sam he doesn't want to do it alone, is recalled in [[7.04 Defending Your Life]]. It is also repeated in [[15.20 Carry On]] with the brothers' roles reversed, i.e. Sam telling Dean he doesn't want to do it alone.
:4. Dean slams Sam against the bridge when he questions the family mission. This is mirrored when Sam does that to Dean in [[1.21 Salvation]].
:5. At the end of the pilot, there is a shot of Dean and Sam standing over the trunk of the [[Impala]]. As Sam tosses a weapon into he trunk he says, "We've got work to do" and closes the trunk. At the end of [[2.22 All Hell Breaks Loose: Part Two]], the scene is replayed with the brother's positions reversed. Dean tosses [[the Colt]] into the trunk and says, "We've got work to do." It is also re-created at the start of [[10.05 Fan Fiction]] after Dean announces he has found a case. In [[15.01 Back and to the Future]], Sam says it and closes the trunk, while the image briefly flashes to the Winchesters closing the trunk at the end of the pilot. Variations also occur in [[4.01 Lazarus Rising]], when Dean asks [[Castiel]] why he was brought back, Castiel responds, "Because we have work for you." In ; in [[7.19 Of Grave Importance]] the line is used by [[Bobby]] to explain his presence as a [[ghost]]. It is also re-created at the start of [[10.05 Fan Fiction]] after Dean announces he has found a case.

It was assumed by Sam, Dean, and fans that [[Azazel]] was the one who killed [[Jessica]]. However, it was revealed in [[5.20 The Devil You Know]] that Sam's demon-possessed friend [[Brady]] did the actual killing, albeit on Azazel's instructions.

Early reports of Supernatural:
September 13 2004: [https://web.archive.org/web/20090802074127/http://www.allbusiness.com:80/services/motion-pictures/4912622-1.html A report on a new WB show in development from allbusiness.com:]
: Described as "Route 66" meets "The X Files," "Supernatural" focuses on two twentysomething brothers who battle the things that go bump in the night as they cruise the dusty backroads of small-town America in their '64 Mustang.
 
: "We had been talking internally about wanting to do a show that truly scares and creeps you out, and (McG and Kripke) came in and pitched this show that not only serviced that need in our development but truly entertained us with the mythology and eeriness that they want to convey in the show," WB Network entertainment president David Janollari said. "The notion of doing a dramatic show that focuses on a really unique brother dynamic and allows us to enter worlds that scare us and creep us out each week to me is a great recipe."

: '''Kripke:''' At one point I wanted to do an anthology show. Another time, I wanted to do a series about a reporter who works for a tabloid magazine, pretty much a rip-off of the original Kolchak: The Night Stalker. And then, finally, just through development with the studio, settled on this idea of telling these stories in the format of this Route 66: Great American Road Trip with these two brothers...It's sort of funny how it all worked out. I literally had scribbled [the idea] in a notebook the day before my meeting with the studio, and then I came into the studio and had pitched them my reporter idea. And they didn't like it. They said, "What else do you got?" I didn't have anything. So, I tap danced and said, "Well, I got this great idea about two brothers on a road trip." They loved it, and it ended up being the show. So, it's funny how that works out.

: When we started casting, we had archetypes in mind, which were Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. We were really looking for Sam to be empathetic, kind, and likeable, and really the audience surrogate. The person who the audience would most see themselves as and really carry the story through their eyes. And that required a really unique likeability. For Dean, we were looking for Han Solo. We were looking for devil-may-care, charismatic, a little rough around the edges, a little edgy, says things that are not always the kindest thing, as long as they're funny. And that was really what we started out with.
