Are you ready to meet baby and get to know mama Winchester? The CW’s “Supernatural” saw Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) successfully defeat Amara. What Sam didn’t know was that Dean didn’t die and that his mother was resurrected as a gift from The Darkness.
“Supernatural” Season 12 has a lot of fun characters, harrowing demons and Lucifer-filled action in store for fans this year. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season:
1. Episode 1 Synopsis
The Season 12 premiere kicks off right where the season finale left off with Dean coming face-to-face with his mother, Mary Winchester (Samantha Smith), after 30 long years. Meanwhile, Sam, who was most certainly shot last season, is very much alive. However, he has been kidnapped by Lady Toni (Elizabeth Blackmore), a member of the British Men of Letters.
After Dean finally realizes Sam is missing, he, Castiel/Cas (Misha Collins) and hunter Mary team up to find him. Of course, rescuing Sam and fighting against members of the British Men of Letters won’t be an easy feat. Fortunately, we learn quickly that Mary is an excellent supernatural hunter.
2. Episode Titles
The names of the first couple of episodes of “Supernatural” Season 12 are:
- Episode 1 – “Keep Calm And Carry On”
- Episode 2 – “Mamma Mia”
- Episode 3 – “The Foundry”
3. Lucifer Has Taken On A New Vessel
Amara zapped Lucifer out of Castiel’s body which means he’s without a vessel when Season 12 premieres. He jumps from vessel to vessel before eventually settling on an aging rock star named Vince Vincente (Rick Springfield). Now that God is gone, what does Lucifer really want?
“What he [Lucifer] discovers is that, in some ways, God had the right idea. Worship is fun. Having people worship you, it’s a good time,” “Supernatural” executive producer Andrew Dabb explained to TVLine, “So for him, popping into someone like the rock star Vince Vincente, it allows him experience that almost God-like worship.”
4. Crowley And Cas Join Forces To Take Down Lucifer
Crowley (Mark Sheppard) and Cas on a road trip? Who would’ve thought? But when “Supernatural” returns this Thursday, Crowley will join forces with Cas to take down Lucifer. After all, the fallen angel humiliated Crowley and dethroned him. With Cas, God’s once most favorite son used him as a vessel. Cas is angry and so is Crowley.
5. Mary And Cas Understand Each Other
Speaking of Cas, several personal storylines are in store for the angel. He understands Mary Winchester in a way that Sam and Dean don’t. Both Mary and Cas see each other as outsiders and being in a place they don’t belong. Also, Cas knows what it’s like to come to Earth after years of being in heaven. “She and Castiel form a really interesting friendship and we think she’s a nice pivot point around which we can spin our characters,” Dabb told Entertainment Weekly.
Moreover, Dean and Sam are certainly happy to have their mother back but they still have to get to know Mary. “At first, they’re really excited to have her back, but also aren’t quite sure how she’s going to respond to them because they know the last thing she wanted was for her kids to be hunters and now she’s walking into a world where her kids are hunters,” Dabb added.
6. Sam And Dean Fight Hitler
Aaron Bass reprises his role as Adam Rose in “Supernatural” Season 12. He was last seen helping the hunters fight a group of necromancers who happen to be Nazis in Season 8. This year, however, Rose is going to help them fight Hitler. While the German dictator won’t be seen till episode 5, this will certainly be a storyline worth watching.
7. The Hunters Learn More About Mary
Dean and Sam will not only discover that Mary is a kickass hunter, but also that it was her family that was in the business of hunting things and not John’s. The boys will learn more about their mother during the course of Season 12.
“Supernatural” Season 12 premieres on Thursday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. EDT on The CW.
