In “Live Free or Twi-Hard” (originally titled “The Vampire Diaries” – and we know why that had to be changed), Sam and Dean are pitted up against their whiniest, most convoluted enemies to date. While everyone who has sat through the ramblings of the numerous Twilight movies will gleefully watch as the Winchester’s steak their proverbial Edward, there’s more to this episode than just poking fun at the teeny-bopper franchise.
After fighting vampires for much of his formative years, Dean finally falls victim to one of his adversaries and gets turned into a vampire. While that would most certainly result in Dean’s imitate death at the hands Sam, things appear to be different in this post-apocalyptic world. As Grandfather Campbell makes his return, he explains that there is a way to change Dean back. Of course, in order to do that, he’ll need to obtain the blood of the vampire that turned him. That is easier said than done as one thing stands in their way – the Alpha vampire.

DEAN IS TURNED INTO A VAMPIRE — After a group of young girls go missing, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) realize that a group of vampires have taken up residence in the small town. After a fight with two of the blood-suckers, Dean is bitten and turns into a vampire. Samuel (guest star Mitch Pileggi) tells Dean he can change him back but he’d have to get the blood of the vampire who turned him. Dean infiltrates the nest and runs into the Alpha.
