Supernatural: Jensen Ackles, EP Preview Dean and Sam's 'Happy' Reunion, Taken Homage
The Winchesters will be reunited — and you better believe it will feel so good.
When Supernatural returns for Season 12 on Thursday, Oct. 13 (The CW, 9/8c), Dean and Sam will initially be separated by outside forces and a false presumption of death. But when has that ever kept the siblings from finding their way back to one another?
The brothers’ quest to do just that is complicated by a number of factors. After being shot by Lady Toni in the Season 11 finale, “Sam’s going through hell with the British Men of Letters” who have captured the hunter, executive producer Robert Singer previews. He’s also under the impression that Dean defeated The Darkness and, thus, is dead. “As far as [Sam] knows, the bomb blew up, and that’s what saved the world.”
Adds star Jensen Ackles: Sammy “has no reason to believe Dean would even be coming for him.”
Meanwhile, the elder Winchester is in the dark about his little bro’s whereabouts — but not for long. “Dean’s got to figure out quickly what has happened, where he is, and then it turns into a bit of Taken,” Ackles shares. There’s even a direct shout-out to Liam Neeson’s famous “I will find you” line from the film franchise, the actor reveals.
The good news: That rescue mission “doesn’t take up too many episodes – we get that over with pretty quickly – but they’re action-packed, and all our characters are involved,” Singer says.
And once the Winchesters are reunited, it’s nothing but love. Declares Singer: “They’re happy to see each other.”
They put us on the #Flash set during a #CWTV promo shoot yesterday. We hada little downtime. So my apologies to Grant Gustin and the rest of the Flash Cast. Jared Padalecki and I aren't used to all these set rules y'all have. Feel free to come visit us on the #Supernatural set anytime...you can nap all you want. 👍🏼 - Jensen Ackles
jeanniechowhair: “Working on a CW promo shoot with @jaredpadalecki and @jensenackles made me realise how much I love and miss these #supernatural boys.#spn #supernaturalfamily#behindthescenes #hairbyjeanniechow”
Supernatural's future: "Look, Jared [Padalecki] and Jensen [Ackles], I believe—at least they seem—they're very happy...I'm thrilled with the creative direction of the show…creatively the show is terrific. If the ratings hold, the show could out last my tenure in this chair," he said.
Anything on Supernatural’s big bad in season 12? — Cady Only if you mean big bads, plural. “At the beginning of the season, Lucifer’s still out there. You’ve got the British Men of Letters, and you’ve got a couple other players,” showrunner Andrew Dabb says. “It’s less Sam and Dean having to go up against one enemy and it’s more Sam and Dean, especially as the season progresses, feeling they’re surrounded by enemies, some of whom may be people they have viewed as allies up until this point.”
Question: How long will Mary be sticking around on Supernatural? Is Samantha Smith a series regular? —Amanda Ausiello: She’s not a regular but showrunner Andrew Dabb confirms that Sam and Dean’s mom “is certainly a presence for a while,” adding, “She’s not a one-episode character, let’s put it that way. That’s something we’re going to explore over the course of the season.”
Question: Any intel on the English Rose on Supernatural? —Sue Ausiello: Lady Toni Bevell (Elizabeth Blackmore) and her brethren across the pond certainly “didn’t start off on the right foot” with the Winchesters, seeing as how she shot Sam in last May’s finale, notes Jared Padalecki. Indeed, as co-showrunner Andrew Dabb explains, “Toni is very against Dean and Sam and has studied them and has very strong opinions about them, [which are] not positive.” That said, Dabb teases that a compromise of sorts may be in the offing seeing as how “there are other people in the British Men of Letters who want to take a different approach [with the Winchesters].”
