|Synopsis=
[[Sam]] & and [[Dean]] show up in the town of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, 5 five miles from [[Bobby]]'s home, to find that the dead are coming back to life. [[Bobby]] tries to convince them that it's nothing, that all of the omens are coincidence, but Dean doesn't fully believe him. One of the dead that has risen, Clay, gets revenge on his killer and then goes home to his family. When Sam and Dean track him down they find that he seems to be a regular guy, and that the local sheriff is in on it.
Bobby shows the boys why he doesn't want them working the case: his dead wife, [[Karen Singer| Karen]], has come back. As Sam and Dean investigate, Sam finds out after being attacked by one of the dead, that about 5 days after rising, the dead begin to turn, starting with a fever, hunger , and then the killing and eating of anyone around them. They set out to find everyone who's come back and kill them by shooting them in the head, along with includng Bobby's wife, and Bobby kicks them out of his house.
Sam goes to talk with the sheriff, and finds that her son, who has come back to life, has already killed her husband. Sam and [[Sheriff Jody Mills]] gather the townspeople in the local jail and prepare them to fight off the dead who've turned. At Bobby's house, Karen beings begins to turn, and Bobby has no choice but to shoot her. All of the dead arrive at the Singer house and trap Dean and Bobby in the closet, but Sam and the Sheriff arrive and stop them.
The dead are put to rest in a pyre, but Bobby makes a separate one for his wife. As Sam, Dean and Bobby reflect on the day, Bobby tells them that Karen was brought back with a message for him. She came to warn Bobby, that because he's helping Sam say 'no' to [[Lucifer]], [[Death]] has his eye on him.

{{TriviaQuote |Text=
[[Sam ]] says the zombies [[zombie]]s can be killed with head shots, and this is how he, [[Dean]], [[Bobby]], and the sheriff [[Sheriff Mills]] kill the zombies. However, when Dean suggests this method in [[2.04 Children Shouldn't Play With with Dead Things]], Sam seems to dismiss the idea and responds, "Dude, you've been watching way too many Romero flicks." Later in the that episode, Sam shoots the zombie in the head to no effect other than making her angry, seemingly proving his view that head shots didn't work on zombies. See the [[Zombie]] entry for more information.
}}
|Minutiae=
{{TriviaQuote |Text=
Total zombie count in this episode, based on how many are shown killed onscreen: 20 ([[KarenSinger]], the sheriff's sonSean Mills, and Old Lady Ezra Jones are killed individually by Bobby and Sam. Dean and Bobby kill six in the junkyard and two more inside the house. Sam and the sheriff kill the remaining nine outside the closet.) However, this might not have been all of them. In a later scene Dean says , "If there's any zombies left out there, we can't find them."
