Supernatural‘s last episode left many viewers bewildered and a little angry. Watchers learned that the Michael’ possession of Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) has ended. Now Nick (Mark Pellegrino) — Lucifer’s former vessel – inherited the evil that once possessed him. Dean and Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) are once again back together.
Instead of continuing along the story line of Dean Winchester struggling against the power of the archangel Michael, Supernatural seems to have shut down a great plot. Thankfully, executive producers promise better things to come – evil vs. good showdowns, unexpected villains, and heartfelt reunions (YES!! Dean’s back and the Wayward sisters are on their way).
Supernatural Spoilers: Dean Winchester has a quick, unexpected return
Supernatural viewers anticipated the reuniting of the Winchester brothers, but to have it happen in episode two (after a huge build-up before the premiere) was super anti-climatic. Many viewers — who saw the developing story line as different and exciting — felt blindsided by Michael’s sudden surrender.
Supernatural groupies were enjoying the opportunity to see Ackles shine as a layered villain inside of Dean Winchester while Sam Winchester proves he’s a lethal leader.
With the main villain now M.I.A, many wonder what’s left for the Winchesters that hasn’t been seen before. These guys have been possessed and re-possessed, dated supernatural creatures, died and been resuscitated… What else could possible happen to these guys that the show hasn’t already thought of??
The show’s bosses, Andrew Dabbs and Eugenie Ross-Leming shed some light on the future of the bro team and upcoming episodes.

Showrunner Dabbs told Variety that replacing Dean with Michael for most of the season “would only do a disservice to that character and to Jensen who does a great job of playing him.” Dabbs also said they want to tell the story over time and that meant Dean Winchester needed to be back as himself.
Supernatural executive producer Eugenie Ross-Leming teased significant plot twists at the CW panel this past Sunday. “Dean’s been contaminated by Cain. He’s a tough guy.” “His body’s sort of accumulated a lot of, I think, antibodies against evil, so he’ll be OK. He knows how to handle himself, even though he’s been altered. But there is a little bit of a surprise, in terms of this semi-possession, which I can’t tell you about.”
“There’s a little bit of a twist” previews Ross-Leming. “There’s something else that’s going to happen that will take a bigger toll on Dean, and he has to pay attention to that.” We can’t wait to see what this “bigger toll” will be. Poor Dean is really going thru it this season, and we’re only on episode 3 of Supernatural.
Long-lasting effects of Michael
How will Dean’s trauma affect the rest of the Winchester team? Sam Winchester and family are grateful to have Dean back, but they are very concerned. Castiel (Misha Collins) uses his powers to retrieve memories from Dean’s mind, and tries to help Dean Winchester come to terms with Michael’s atrocities. Sources reveal that Dean will throw himself into demon-hunting instead of facing his trauma.
Meanwhile, Castiel continues to mentor Jack (Alexander Calvert). They are bonding over Jack’s mother and his need to regain his grace. They are also trying to figure out the best way to stop Michael and his monsters. Wonder what they will do when they find out what Nick did. They better find him soon before he goes on a killing spree.
Nick — the real Supernatural Big-Bad?
The way Nick tortured his old neighbor made viewers wonder if Nick was born evil. He enjoyed killing way too much. This may not be the last time we see Nick go after an innocent victim in the name of revenging his family. Supernatural fans speculate that he may be the person who killed his wife and child. The fact that a mysterious killer used a hammer to kill his family, and Nick also chose to use a hammer to murder his neighbor — is too coincidental. Maybe he just doesn’t remember killing his family… Lucifer did alter his mind… It’s also possible that Lucifer chose Nick, because he recognized the evil that Nick already possessed.
It looks as if the producers are throwing some strong hints that Nick may be the new evil on the Supernatural horizon. If so, the Winchesters are gonna have their hands full. They may need to need to call in help.
Supernatural calls on the Wayward sisters
Supernatural sources say the Wayward sisters will be joining the Winchesters this week. Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) will appear in episode three, and her sisters will follow in future episodes. This is great news for Supernatural and Wayward sister fans! We missed these bad ass babes, and love that they’re back on the show. They also now have their own podcast!
