Jonah Greely was a ghost that haunted Highway 41 once a year.
Background[edit | edit source]
Greely was a lifelong hunter and farmer and was married to his wife Marion. Greely seemed to be a good man in life who truly loved his wife. On the night of February 22, 1992, while hunting under the hunter's moon, Greely stepped into the middle of the road where Molly McNamara and her husband David were driving. Spotting Greely but unable to stop in time, Molly hit Greely with her car before driving off of the road and into a tree.
Greely was killed by being hit by the car while Molly died in the collision with the tree, though her husband David survived with minor injuries. Greely's body was eventually claimed by Marion who buried him next to his hunting cabin and planted a tree as a grave marker. Unable to bear living without her husband, Marion locked herself in the attic of their house and committed suicide.
Following Greely's death, his rage over it turned him into a vengeful spirit. Every year on the anniversary of their deaths, Molly and Greely's spirits would manifest on Highway 41 where they died and Greely would chase down and torture Molly in revenge for his death. Unlike Molly, Greely was aware that he was dead and why, while every year Molly forgot their encounters after the sun came up and they disappeared for another year. Greely's chases of Molly caused twelve accidents, five of which were fatal.
On February 22, 2007, the cycle started again for Molly and Greely except this time, Molly ran into hunters Sam and Dean Winchester who were investigating the haunting. The Winchesters attempted to drive Molly to safety, but Greely was able to disable the Impala. Greely continuously chased Molly as the Winchesters searched for his grave, eventually capturing her and taking her to his hunting cabin to torture. As Greely began to torture Molly, he was interrupted by Dean who he tried to kill. As Greely and Dean struggled over a knife, Sam dug up his bones and salted and burned them. In immense pain, Greely dropped his knife, backed away from Dean and went up in flames with a scream.
