Dean came back empty-handed from the alternate universe in last week’s SUPERNATURAL. While he and Ketch had originally entered the apocalypse world to find Mary and Jack, they got distracted when they learned that the alternate universe’s version of Charlie was about to be executed for standing up to the angels. Wanting to save some version of Charlie, Dean and Ketch rescued her and then Ketch remained behind to help Charlie fight back against the angels.
Unfortunately, getting back to the original mission won’t be easy because the one ingredient they really need — an archangel’s grace — is no longer in their possession. And unless the Winchesters can find Gabriel again, they’re out of luck. But they’re not ready to give up quite yet, so in this week’s episode they call on Rowena to find the archangel. Unfortunately, she’s a little busy with her own side-mission (a deadly one, according to The CW) and so the brothers eventually set off to find and stop her. That puts them in the crosshairs of a reaper — one that is familiar to Dean. And apparently she has been spending some time around the brothers lately, watching them at Billie’s request. She’s also seen parts of their lives they had thought were private, including Sam’s extensive collection of haircare products and Dean’s disgusting food habits.
A new episode of SUPERNATURAL airs tonight (April 19) at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
