“Supernatural” and Dante’s Purgatory

supernatural-and-dantes-purgatoryIn a 2010 episode of the TV show Supernatural, the alpha vampire makes a reference to Dante citing the very real location of Purgatory. The vampire says that the King of Hell is looking for this place because it is where the souls of vampires, and other creatures, go when they die; and he is also interested in it because of its proximity to heaven.    –Taylor Beaver
