Mr. Crowley finds himself in a bind this week on “Supernatural.”
Oh, how many times can those Winchester Brothers be brought back from the brink of death or death itself in “Supernatural?” How many more seasons of the show will we get?
Well, after last week’s premiere, it seems Dean has a little more than Sam riding shotgun with them: he’s also got an angel riding along by the name of Ezekiel. Now if you’re a little confused because you only see two people in the car, there’s a good reason for that. If you watched the show last week you know what the reason is. And if you didn’t watch it, then I’m not gonna spoil it for you. You’re just gonna have to watch it to now won’t you?
Yes, that was a rhetorical question.
So we’ve got fallen angels, we’ve got an angel who’s lost his powers and grace (not to mention a bitchin’ trenchcoat), we got an angel tagging along that we haven’t met before, we’ve got Bobby making an appearance, and we’ve at least heard from Crowley, albeit muffled through the trunk of a car. Looks like we’re going to see him up close and personal judging by some of the photos from this episode.
So make sure to check out the preview clip for this next episode, and some photos below. And make sure you watch the daggone show so you aren’t complaining about spoilers next week.
And, it’s Tuesday night, so don’t forget that means it’s also “Face Off” night. If you haven’t checked out this show on Syfy, it’s a great reality contest where special-effects makeup artists are competing for the top prize. You get a great behind-the-scenes look at how creature makeups are done and it’s low drama. So get in touch with your inner armchair makeup artists and check it out, but check out a few photos below in the “Face Off” gallery. (No finished looks, but some in-progress ones. You have been warned)

As if the real show isn’t funny enough, the full gag reel for “Supernatural” Season 8 dropped this week, and you can see it now before buying the DVD September 10. Watch the boys flubbing lines, being silly and falling down… again, and again, and again. And a really uncomfortable scene between Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins.
You’ll know which one I mean.
As for Season 9, a few spoilers have made the rounds, including the return of Felicia Day, and an episode where they take on “The Wizard of Oz.” That should be quite interesting. Who do you suppose will be Dorothy?
“Supernatural” Season 9 premieres October 8 on the CW.

When Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) was killed off on Season 8 of Supernatural, he got one of the best send-offs in TV history with a moving, buttersweet episode dispatching him to heaven. But you know how those Supernatural fans are, and they weren’t going to stand for that. The public outcry over Bobby’s death was so great that the writers have decided to bring him back from the dead for Season 9; Well, sort of bring him back anyway. Bobby Singer will indeed return to Season 9 of Supernatural as a ghost to haunt his favorite “sons.”
Okay guys, I love Bobby as much as anyone, but c’mon.
Beaver himself broke the news via Twitter, and while he breathed incredible life and humor into such a great character, how much can the Supernatural writers milk this death? And how are they gonna pull this one off? Well, seems the only ones who know right now are the writers and Beaver himself, who teased fans on Twitter by telling them he “Read the script. Didn’t see this one coming. Whatever you think it is—it ain’t.”
I don’t know what they have up their sleeves, but they better make it good to justify returning him from one of their most poignant episodes ever. (Yes, they can get all sensitive and stuff on Supernatural.) E! Online theorized that maybe since all the angels in heaven were expelled at the end of last season, Bobby may be coming back as a fallen angel. Now that could be interesting. And we might be able to forgive them for not letting poor ol’ Bobby rest in peace.
Queue up a little AC/DC “Back in Black” for his return to Supernatural Season 9.
“Supernatural” fans, say it ain’t so! Writer Ben Edlund, who made his mark at the “Supernatural” franchise with such classics as “Wishful Thinking” and my all-time favorite episode, “The French Mistake,” is jumping over to “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke’s new show, “Revolution.” Well, relatively new, as it is going on season 2. After a — shall we say — less than stellar debut season.
Actor Misha Collins dropped the bomb at the All Hell Breaks Loose “Supernatural” convention in Australia. After which, the howl of agony from “Supernatural” fans could be heard ’round the world. If you are having trouble placing “The French Mistake” episode, it’s the one where Sam and Dean find themselves transported to another dimension, where they are actors in a TV series… named Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.
Classic. And oh-so-meta.
