Not that this is a serious topic or anything, especially considering that they’ve now created some categories that would never exist on the Emmys or the Oscars, but hey, if it has Supernaturalas a nominee, we’re going to vote for them, right?
And the category we’re voting for them in is for the People’s Choice Award of Favorite TV Bromance. There are many good ones out there, but none like the bromance of brothers Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) along angel-turned-human Castiel (Misha Collins).
And don’t forget to vote for them in the Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show as well! Both Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki are nominees for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor, but we won’t force you to pick sides.
This looks to be another amusing Supernatural episode for the Winchester boys as they deal with our four-legged friends, and apparently Dean deals with one even more so than he probably wants to. Check out the promo below.
DOGGIE DEANLITTLE — While investigating two bizarre murders, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) realize there is an eyewitness to both gruesome deaths – a German Sheppard. Anxious to find out if they are dealing with a witch, a skinwalker or other supernatural monster, the guys look up a spell that could let Dean “communicate” with the dog. Unfortunately, the spell comes with side effects that no one saw coming. Tim Andrew directed the episode written by Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder.
The plot synopsis hints that the angel-turned-human will be investigating a case.
CASTIEL GETS A JOB — Castiel (Misha Collins) gets a job at a Gas-N-Sip and actually starts to enjoy life as a human. A headline in the local newspaper about some disappearances in the area catches his eye, so he calls Dean (Jensen Ackles) to help him investigate the case. Dean knows he needs to keep Sam/Ezekiel (Jared Padaleck) away from Castiel, so he tells Sam that he and Kevin (guest star Osric Chau) need to stay and work with Crowley to decipher the tablet. Crowley agrees to help Sam and Kevin but in return he wants one phone call to hell. Rob Spera directed the episode written by Robert Berens (907).
In the past, Castiel has proven to be a dedicated hunter with questionable methods. What do you think will be the outcome of his efforts?
We haven’t gotten much from Castiel (Misha Collins) yet, but this week’s Supernaturalepisode is going to make up for lack of that with this episode, titled “I’m No Angel.” Check out the still images below. Guest actors are Shannon Lucio as April Kelly and Stefano Giulianetti as Joey.
The long week is almost over, and the ratings from last week’s premiere are positive.
Some good CW ratings news (finally!): Supernatural returned much stronger Tuesday night, garnering 2.5 million viewers and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49, up a big 50 percent from last fall.
Obviously, a huge number of fans are looking forward to the rest of the season, and to satisfy your needs, here’s a preview of tomorrow’s episode, and an interview with Jared and Jensen about upcoming episodes.
Highlights from the interview:
In episode 8, there’s a scene about how the brothers have each other even though they lie to each other.
Padalecki’s excited to have “an Angel embody Sam.” It would be a scary, fun thing to play.
It’s been a running joke on set that Ezekiel is “inside” Sam. Ezekiel will continue to act through Sam for a while. He’s still around and it continues to be a secret in episode 8.
“I like that it’s kind of like a work in progress and that slowly but surely, Sam is hopefully healing — presumably.” – Padalecki
“Or, is it a work in progress?” – Jensen
Sam won’t be happy to find out the truth: “So we see Sam kinda come to terms with, ‘I’ve let a good life. I’ve done my damnedest, and I’ve done some bad, unfortunately, but I tried to do good.’ So we see Sam come to a point where he’s happy to move on. I think with the fact that Sam finally found that place, I think he’s going to be, obviously, unhappy that his brother lied and has been lying to him. That never works out well.” – Padalecki
Cas will have to come to terms with his new human status. And, the brothers will have to adjust to his lack of ability to help. They don’t have “an angel in their pocket” any more.
Cas makes his way to the Men of Letters bunker, but there’s a conflict with both Ezekiel and Cas being together.
The Angel War that was in Heaven is now on Earth. There are different factions of Angels. And, some are after Cas. Dean tells his Angel friend, “You’ve gotta go.” In episode 7, the brothers find out where Cas has been.
At 7:10, Co-Executive Producer, Jim Michaels makes a face in the window.
“[Dean] doesn’t have his support system like he used to. He doesn’t have Cas the way he did. He doesn’t have Sam. He’s got his car. That’s about it. He’s got his car and his music. So the beginning of the season has been a little difficult for him because he kinda feels like he’s on an island of his own and that’s a situation that he doesn’t like to be in.” – Ackles
The Men of Letters set has been expanded (Check out the photos below). It includes a garage for the Impala. “Baby finally got a place to sleep.” – Ackles
Instead of just monsters-of-the week, the story is bigger than that in season 9. There’s a war going on for them to be involved in.
