“Supernatural” ended on a nail-biting cliff-hanger in Season 11. In the season finale, a member of the British chapter of the Men of Letters named Lady Toni Bevell seemingly shot Sam Winchester. Poor Sammie thought his brother Dean was dead. He had no idea that Amara/The Darkness had reconciled with her brother God/Chuck nor did he know that his mother Mary Winchester was resurrected in the final moments of The CW series.
The Season 12 premiere photos reveal that Sam (Jared Padalecki) is very much alive, but he will soon be tortured by the Men of Letters. Luckily for him, Dean (Jensen Ackles), Mary (Samantha Smith) and angel Castiel (Misha Collins) will soon realize what has happened to him and will try to rescue him. But what is Lady Toni (Elizabeth Blackmore) really up to?
“Toni is very against Dean and Sam and has studied them and has very strong opinions about them, [which are] not positive,” “Supernatural” showrunner Andrew Dabb told TVLine. In fact, in one of the Season 12 photos (seen below), Blackmore’s character is seen talking to a bruised and battered Sam. She clearly isn’t a fan of the Winchesters.
However, all the members of the Men of Letters aren’t all that bad. Dabb teased that a compromise of sorts may take place between them and the Winchesters since there are some people in the British Men of Letters who feel that they must deal with the American hunters differently.
The Season 12 premiere, titled “Keep Calm And Carry One,” will also show Dean coming to terms with the fact that Mary is alive. Furthermore, some of his mother’s secrets will soon come to light in the upcoming season. Sam and Dean may not have the correct information about their newly resurrected mother.
Nevertheless, mama Winchester will prove to be a kickass hunter in Season 12.
“Supernatural” Season 12 premieres on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 9 p.m. EDT on The CW. The series has been moved from Wednesdays to Thursdays this fall.
