Attention Supernatural fans: I am writing weekly tune ins/previews/interviews and recaps for Celebuzz.com this season. This taste of season eight comes from my WB sponsored Vancouver set visit trip and is just the first of lots of great coverage to come over there! I hope you'll follow along :)
The CW’s Supernatural is known for its cliffhangers, but Season 7 just may have been the biggest one yet. How could it be bigger than Dean (Jensen Ackles) being dragged to hell or Sam (Jared Padalecki) letting Lucifer take control of his body and then falling into the pit? Well, how about by splitting the brothers again, only this time Sam has no idea where his brother is and therefore is at a loss on how to even attempt to bring him home.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. When Dean finds himself in Purgatory, he is suddenly in a “more concentrated version” of the kinds of evil he usually only sees in small, weekly doses. His buddy Castiel (Misha Collins) abandons him for reasons that will become known in the season premiere, and he is forced to team up with a character he would normally be hunting.
Naturally, when Dean finally gets out of Purgatory and tracks down his brother in the Season 8 premiere, “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” things look mighty different from how we last left them.
