Pad of Definitions (1.20 Dead Man's Blood), Official Website

The method of incapacitating a vampire with blood from a dead person is part of vampiric folklore. Tricking a vampire into drinking blood from a dead person to kill him has also been used quite a few times in vampiric tales, notably Interview with the Vampire, wherein the vampire must stop drinking the blood of her/his victim before she/he dies, as drinking blood after death is harmful to the vampire. In Supernatural, Dead Man's Blood has been used as follows:

  • The Alpha Vampire is given an intravenous drip of dead man's blood to restrain him in 6.07 Family Matters, and dead man's blood is spread on the doors of the building in which he is kept as a deterrent to other vampires.
