Episode(s) 8.03 Heartache


Inyo was a Mayan athlete born over 900 years ago. He made a deal, through a high priest, with the maize god Cacao that kept him immortal and perpetually in peak physical condition. In return, twice a year he would sacrifice a human heart to Cacao -- one for the sowing and one for the harvest. Over the centuries he became a successful sports star in many arenas, although every decade or so he had to reinvent himself. In the 1940's, when he was known as the boxer Kelly Duran, he fell in love with a woman called Betsy. Upon discovery of his true identity, and its cost, she chose to ignore it.

As Betsy aged and reached her 40s, she began to pose as Brick's mother instead of his wife, calling herself Eleanor. Since 1994, he posed as Brick Holmes who was a successful quarterback. According to Sam, who idolized him back in high school, he played 18 pro seasons, 7 division championships, and 4 Super Bowls during his football career. Eventually Inyo's love for Eleanor became more important to him than his sporting prowess, and when he realized she would die and leave him alone once more, he drove his car off a bridge, presumably hoping that his corpse would burn up in the crash. However, his body remained intact and as he signed a donor card, various viable organs ended up in eight different people, compelling them to continue the ritual sacrifices.

8.03 Heartache

After learning of the ritual sacrifices, Sam and Dean begin investigating the people who have received Brick's organs and are continuing the biannual sacrifices. During the investigation, they visit Eleanor Holmes after having figured out what Brick was and had done and she told them everything, having grown tired of the life like Brick. Wanting it to be over and presumably because Brick did too, Eleanor tells Sam and Dean that Brick's heart is the key as it is the focus of the sacrifices and killing the person with the heart will break the deal's influence over the remaining people with his organs. Dean kills Randa Moreno, the person with Brick's heart, and as Brick had wanted, it was truly over.


  • Some the sports that Brick was known to have participated in throughout his long life included: Kendōka, archery, Cricket, golf, boxing, baseball, racing and football.
  • Jesse Franchuk also played a bunker demon in 15.04 Atomic Monsters.
