Things are going to get pretty bloody when the Winchester brothers hit the road in the upcoming Season 11 installment of “Supernatural.” According to the synopsis for episode 4, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) will pack their belongings for a road trip as they attempt to hunt down a deadly creature -- one that not only devours the hearts of its victims but also drains them of blood.
“What we're looking at a werewolf/vampire hybrid?” Sam asks his big brother in a promo video, only to have Dean respond that they’re tracking down a unique monster he’s dubbed as a “werepire.”
And of course, with a name like that, viewers can only imagine the gruesome deaths set to occur in the forthcoming installment, which will take place from the view of Dean’s cherished ’67 Chevrolet Impala. The episode, titled “Baby,” will tell the untold story of what happens when the Winchester’s hit the road after taking on a paranormal case.
“When I read the script, I was like, ‘We never see the boys do this stuff. I can’t wait to see it,'” Padalecki told TVLine.“That should be something we do more often. We usually have the come-to-God [moment] in the middle of this library or something… But what a cool glimpse into the Winchesters and how they travel. We’re not getting a motel every night. It’s going to be, ‘Hey, don’t want to waste the money, crash in the car and wake up and head out.'”
The actor dished to Entertainment Weekly that the road trip will allow the brothers to have their “obligatory Sam-and-Dean-talk-over-the-hood-of-the-Impala.” But, of course, fans can still anticipate gore amidst all the brotherly bonding in episode 4. Jeff Budnick, the picture car coordinator of “Supernatural,” revealed to TVLine that there was “blood everywhere” while the CW series was being filmed. In fact, he revealed that the shooting of episode 4 was the busiest he’s been in 11 years while working on the show!
“The cars that I had to repair from that episode, five of them had to get new headliners because of the cameras ripping through the headliners. We had to put carpets in and the glass got cracked. It was a lot of work to get them back to normal,” he explained.
“Supernatural” airs Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. EDT on the CW.
