SUPERNATURAL Sneak Peek: Is Dean Getting Suspicious of Mary?

spn

There’s a lot of complicated family relationships happening in this week’s SUPERNATURAL.

First, Crowley’s family is going to be complete when his son — Gavin — reappears. Gavin, of course, was brought into the present by Crowley and has remained here ever since, which meant he didn’t die in the past as intended. This week, Sam and Dean investigate a case related to the Star, the very ship Gavin was originally supposed to die on. Once they discover that they ask Rowena to help locate her grandson so they can get some information from him.

Meanwhile, at the beginning of the episode we find the boys heading to their case before they’re really aware of Gavin. They’re discussing the fact that Mary has passed on helping them with this case because she was “too tired”. Sam seems to buy the excuse — after all, hunting is a tiring profession. But Dean seems suspicious that his mother is hiding something from them. Of course, we know the fact that she’s working with the British Men of Letters is the exact thing she’s hiding, but her boys don’t know about that yet. How long before they find out? And will they consider it a betrayal?

A new episode of SUPERNATURAL airs on Thursday, February 23 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

SUPERNATURAL Photos: Crowley’s Complicated Family

Gavin MacLeod (a.k.a. Crowley’s son) has appeared twice on SUPERNATURAL. The first time we met him was back in the season 6 episode “Weekend at Bobby’s”, when he told Bobby and the Winchester brothers the location of Crowley’s bones, thus giving the men an advantage over the self-proclaimed King of Hell. We saw him again in the season 9 episode “King of the Damned”, when Abaddon brought him into the future to use as a pawn against Crowley. After Crowley refused to send his son back into the past to die, Gavin remained in the present.

In an upcoming episode of SUPERNATURAL it looks like Gavin will resurface. The Winchester brothers will investigate a murder at a museum and they learn that a ghost from a merchant ship that sunk in 1723 may be at the heart of the mystery. In fact, this specific ship — “The Star” — was the ship that Gavin was originally supposed to die on. Armed with this information, Sam and Dean ask Rowena to track down Gavin.

Elsewhere in the episode, Kelly Kline is still pregnant with Lucifer’s child. When an angel attempts to kill her, she takes refuge with a demon.

SUPERNATURAL Recap: Princes, Lances and Liars

spn

This week’s SUPERNATURAL, a nod to the Tarantino style of films, begins with Mr. Ketch, asking someone to tell him a story. Then it’s 5:20 p.m. and Dean is flirting with a waitress while sitting at a restaurant with Sam, Mary, Cas and a hunter named Wally. The waitress, however, is into Cas and soon Mary directs the conversation into something more pressing — Wally called the others to help him with a demon problem. While Mary assures Wally that everything will be fine we launch right into the next scene, where Cas is bleeding out and being carried by Mary, Wally is soon dead and the brothers are fighting some demons.

The episode, which jumps around (so bear with me), flashes back to earlier, when the brothers first meet up with Wally, Mary and Cas. Then we’re back at the restaurant where they are finally going over the plan. Later, Cas is keeping watch outside the house, while the others are setting traps inside. Cas pops inside for a moment and Mary gets a call from Wally that the demon is returning early. Everyone inside the house is anxiously waiting for the whistling demon to enter and Dean immediately puts a bullet into him. But it has little effect. Sam goes after him next, but the demon pulls Ruby’s blade out of him with little effort. Cas is his next victim and then the demon goes after Mary with weird glowing eyes. The group is soon separated as more demons approach and the brothers join Wally in fighting them, while Cas is crawling away from the original demon.

Then we’re back at Wally’s death, while Cas gets stabbed in the side with a spear. Mary temporarily saves him and brings him to a nearby barn, but he’s in bad shape. And she tells the boys as much when she calls them with her location.

It’s 9:05 p.m. now and the brothers reunite with their mother and tell her of Wally’s death. Mary wants to know if her boys saw the demon’s yellow eyes and Sam wonders what she got them into.

At 10:07 a.m. we see Mary sitting in a car with Wally while spying on a demon and we learn that she recruited Wally as a cover — she wanted to tell her boys they were called to help Wally, not her. And she’s praising the British Men of Letters, telling Wally about all the monsters they’ve killed together since they recruited her.

It’s 8:23 p.m. and the group is first pulling up to the house, prepping for the battle that will come later. And we learn that Mary covertly went into the basement soon after. Behind a painting she finds a safe and inside she finds a magical glowing box. She takes something out of it and then closes up the safe and heads back upstairs.

Then we’re at 9:03 p.m. and Mary is texting her BMOL contact, who is telling her to split because they had bad intel. Cas is groaning in pain, while weird black veins are spreading all over him. He thinks he’s dying, but Dean says he just needs some time to heal.

Enter Crowley: “You idiots, you’re all going to die”.

Sam correctly guesses that the demons were friends of Crowley. “Do you know what you’ve done? Does the name Ramiel mean anything to you?” It doesn’t to the humans in the room, but Castiel knows Ramiel as the “Prince of Hell”. Cas insists the princes are all dead and Crowley explains that was just a story. Apparently the Princes of Hell are the first demons turned after Lilith. In fact, they have Azazel’s yellow eyes.

We’re back to six years ago now and we see the demon we now know as Ramiel meeting Crowley for the first time. He’s introducing himself as King of the Crossroads who has been sent by Hell and he comes bearing gifts: the lance of Michael, the archangel. This is the same lance/spear that later stabs Cas. The second gift is the same thing we later saw in the glowing box (although we still don’t know what it is). And his third gift? The Throne of Hell. Back then Lilith and Azazel were dead and Lucifer was back in his cage, so Crowley offers up the crown. But Ramiel suggests that Crowley take it instead. “You seem ambitious enough, conniving enough, slimy enough. So take it. Go for the glory, kid,” Ramiel says to Crowley. Ramiel’s only request is that Crowley will ensure that no one ever bothers a Prince of Hell again.

In the present, Crowley explains that the lance is what got Cas and he’s sure to rot away. The brothers suggest they trap Ramiel to find a cure for this, but Crowley doesn’t think they have enough time. He splits soon after.

It’s 9:07 p.m. and the Winchesters are prepping for Ramiel’s arrival (he helpfully whistles so they can hear him). Crowley wants to ensure Ramiel doesn’t go into the barn, but Ramiel throws him through the barn door instead.

It’s earlier again, back when Crowley first left the barn. Cas is telling the brothers that they’ve helped changed him and that they’re his family. “I love you. I love all of you,” he says. “Just please, please don’t make my last moments be spent watching you die. Just run. Save yourselves. And I will hold Ramiel off as long as I can.” But the Winchesters refuse to leave, so now we have Ramiel trapped in a ring of holy fire. Sam and Dean are demanding a cure, but Ramiel says one doesn’t exist. He also demands what they stole from him, but Dean says they doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Then Ramiel has Michael’s lance and he starts fighting the Winchesters. Sam manages to stab and kill him as black goo starts coming out of Cas’ mouth. Crowley picks up the lance and then….Cas is healed. “Magic’s in the craftsmanship,” Crowleys says, remembering what Ramiel said when he first received the lance.

Cas is now healed and they all dismiss what Ramiel said about someone stealing from him. The group heads home.

But there’s one last thing: we’re back with Mr. Ketch, who is actually listening to Mary recount what happened. She’s upset about them sending her after a Prince of Hell and she says she’ll burn everything down if they try to fool her like that again.

“Is that a threat?” he asks. “It’s a promise,” she replies.

He apologizes for them making a mistake and her anger dissipates. “Can I see it?” he asks of what she took. She pulls it out of her pocket and hands over what she took from the safe.

What is it?

The Colt!

And Crowley is now desperately trying to find the gun. Someone inside a cell is taunting him, telling him the brothers don’t care about him. “They kill your kind, it’s in their blood. You know it’s only a matter of time until they come for you.”

“Shut your mouth, you dog,” Crowley says.

“That’s not my name”,” says the red eyed creature (a.k.a. Lucifer).

SUPERNATURAL Sneak Peek: A Teachable Moment for Castiel

supernatural

Castiel hasn’t been with many women on SUPERNATURAL, but an encounter with a waitress in a diner leads to some light flirtation for the angel.

In this week’s episode Mary reaches out to her sons and Castiel for help on a case and another hunter, Wally, joins them. They head to a restaurant for some food and Dean attempts to flirt with the waitress, but she’s more interested in Cas, who flusters when she calls him handsome. Dean and Wally have a few suggestions on how Cas should approach Mandy, but Mary puts a stop to that soon enough.

Later, however, things are not looking up for Castiel, at least according to the photos from the episode. It looks like the angel is infected with something awful and is preparing to die.

SUPERNATURAL Photos: Mary is Double-Crossed

At the end of the January return of SUPERNATURAL we got a sense that Mary may be getting in over her head. The British Men of Letters had been approaching American hunters to team up with them but had been rebuffed thus far. Until they went to Mary, who had recently worked with Mick and Mr. Ketch to help locate Dean and Sam after they broke out of a government prison.

Mary seemed open to hearing Mick’s pitch, but we suspect things won’t end well for the Winchester matriarch. In a mid-February episode, Mary reaches out to her boys and Castiel for help with a case, but she doesn’t tell them that the British Men of Letters are also involved. Mary will be double-crossed and her secrets will come to light. Will her sons be upset that their mother is working with the British Men of Letters or are they more open to working with their pals across the pond as well? And based on the preview below, it also seems like Cas’ life is at risk in this episode.

SUPERNATURAL Recap: Forgetting Dean Winchester

supernatural

Dean Winchester nearly lost himself in this week’s SUPERNATURAL. In the cold open, we spotted a man running through the woods, with Dean giving chase. But as Dean cornered the witch, the man threw some powerful magic at him.

Waking up and finding himself mysteriously in the woods, Dean was surprised to find his phone broken. He managed to borrow one from an early morning jogger and called Sam to meet him at a nearby waffle restaurant. Sam didn’t understand what had happened to his brother, although he suspected Dean went on a bender the night before. The Winchesters took a while to really start to realize something was up, but it slowly became obvious that something was affecting Dean’s memory. It took him a moment to recall the case they were working on and a woman (Elka) Dean had recently slept with stopped by for a hello, but he had forgotten her entirely.

Later, at the morgue, the brothers realized that their victim (a money manager) had been killed by a witch. Moments after that, Dean crashed his car into a newspaper dispenser when he couldn’t remember to put the car into reverse. But the situation became even more dire as Sam’s face started going out of focus to Dean and he asked “who’s Dean?” as his brother called his name.

Back at the hotel Sam suggested that Dean had been hexed, but Dean insisted he was fine. Still, he was forgetting the names of normal objects (like a lamp), so Sam said they were going to find some help and started to leave post-its around the motel room to help Dean remember things.

Enter Rowena, who was enjoying a winning game of poker when Sam gave her a call. Rowena’s suggestion to Sam was that killing the witch could break the spell. To accomplish this, Sam suggested they retrace Dean’s steps from the night before and off they went. After visiting the office of their victim, their next stop was a burger joint, where they met Elka, who was a waitress there. She wasn’t eager to talk to them, but Sam kept pressing for details and she admitted that Dean had ridden the mechanical bull the night before and they had slept together before Dean disappeared. A look through the bar’s security footage revealed that Dean had followed the witch who had hexed him. As Sam explained to Dean that witches and vampires are real, Dean smiled and said that was awesome.

As they found the woods and the glyphs the witch had used in the spell against Dean, Sam got Dean up to speed on their lives. But when they found the dead witch (Gideon), Sam was confused because the death of the witch should have cured Dean. As the Winchesters headed out, Gideon’s family found his body.

Rowena stopped by the motel with some news about the glyphs. She believed there was only one witch family who were well-versed in this type of magic. The three children — Gideon, Boyd and Catriona — were rather rotten and possessed a powerful spell book: the Black Grimoire. Rowena was convinced that the only thing that could really help Dean was the grimoire. Sam tried to keep Dean’s spirits high, but it was clear he was reeling from the possibility that Dean would lose himself (and eventually his life).

In the bathroom, Dean reminded himself of his name, slowly forgetting even that, while outside in the room Sam was convinced the only reason Rowena was helping them was to get her hands on the grimoire. As Sam headed out to find the remaining family members, he left Rowena to look after Dean, who was becoming even more despondent as he struggled to remember himself.

In the witches’ house, Sam found Catriona, but she wasn’t surprised to see him. In fact, she had assumed he would come. Boyd knocked Sam away and Catriona unleashed a spell which caused Sam to scream out in pain. “Sam?” Dean called out in a rare moment of remembrance as he and Rowena listened in over the phone.

Dean awoke in his car with a note telling him to stay in it. Rowena, meanwhile, was meeting with Catriona in her foyer as Sam tried to convince Boyd not to swap his soul for Gideon’s. As Rowena and Catriona got into a magical fight, Dean got into the Impala’s trunk and picked up a gun with a post-it note on it, directing him to use it. And just before Catriona could kill Rowena, Dean entered and shot her. As Boyd ran off from Sam, Dean shot him as well.

Rowena rocked the counter-spell and cured Dean. They bid her farewell and Sam demanded she hand over the book. “You’re no fun,” she insisted, but Sam promised that they owed her a small favor now. As the brothers headed out, Sam told Dean that he was a bit jealous because Dean managed to get rid of the weight of all their troubles, even if only for a short while. “Was it nice to drop our baggage?” Dean said. “Yeah, maybe. Hell, probably. But it wasn’t just the crap that got lost, I mean, it was everything. It was what we do, you know, all of it. So, if that’s what being happy looks like, I think I’ll pass.”

SUPERNATURAL Sneak Peek: Dean Gets Whammied

supernatural

Dean has a serious case of memory loss in this week’s SUPERNATURAL. After being hit with a spell, Dean gradually starts losing his memory, his sense of self and his knowledge of the people around him.

In a clip from the episode, we see him recovering from a night out that he can’t seem to remember. It’s likely this is when he got hit by the spell, but Sam wonders if he just went on a bender and blacked out (and broke his phone). The first indication about the memory loss comes as Dean struggles to remember Cas’ search for Kelly — a.k.a. Lucifer’s baby mamma — and their case of the week.

You can also see a girl walk in to the restaurant and do a double-take when seeing Dean. After approaching him he asks who she is and she slaps him. Did Dean participate in a one-night stand and then forget the girl? Yikes!

SUPERNATURAL Photos: Forgetful Dean

A lot of crazy things have happened to Dean on SUPERNATURAL. In an earlier season he rapidly aged into an old man and more recently he was changed back into his teenage self. He’s also been turned into a demon. But never has Dean truly lost his sense of self before, which is precisely what’s going to happen in an upcoming episode.

In “Regarding Dean”, Dean gets hit by a spell that is rapidly causing him to lose his memory. In other words, everything that makes Dean *Dean* is being lost — including memories of his brother. Desperate to help him, Sam seeks out Rowena to help him track down an old world, powerful family of witches to help end this memory loss.

SUPERNATURAL: Misha Collins & Alicia Witt Tease a Dark Time From Castiel’s Past

supernatural

Lily Sunder has been planning her revenge for over 100 years. When we first meet this SUPERNATURAL guest star in this week’s episode, we’ll learn that over a century ago Castiel and his former angel battalion murdered Lily’s family. Desperate for revenge, Lily has steeped herself in black magic and become an immortal witch, biding her time until she can get strike against the angels. When she starts coming after Castiel and his fellow angels, the Winchesters step in to help stop her.

Back in the fall, we visited with the SUPERNATURAL cast on location in a church where they were filming this episode (the interviews took place in the church’s basement). When asked, Misha Collins (Castiel) and Alicia Witt (Lily Sunder) had a few teases to offer about the upcoming episode, titled “Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets”.

“We just came downstairs from doing a scene in an old church where we are dealing with some of Cas’ old battalion mates from heaven,” Collins said. “I think it’s interesting for him to rehash old memories for sure…..We’re seeing the earliest version of Cas to date.” Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) added that the Cas we’ll see in this episode is from “before he was humanized a little bit”.

When Witt auditioned for this episode, she said “I will say that when I auditioned for this, they told me very little about my character, similar to my experience auditioning for THE WALKING DEAD….[but] I knew what the title of the episode was, so I was like, ‘I bet you I have some pretty juicy stuff to do’.”

And we’ll soon learn that Lily isn’t just sticking with magic to harm her enemies — she’s also not hesitant to resort to fisticuffs: “I also got to do a lot of fighting in this episode. I’ve done quite a few fight scenes in my career, but I did different fighting in this than I’ve done, using different weapons than I’ve ever used before.”

As you can see from the photo above, Lily will also be crossing paths with the Winchester brothers and when asked about working with Padalecki and Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) she said “I do have interactions with them. They are two giant goofballs in real life. There’s always laughing. They have so much fun together.”
