If you’ve been missing the sticky sweetness of Sam and Dean’s brotherly bond ever since Sam left his soul in hell, rest easy. There’s hope on the horizon, Supernatural fans.
While executive producer and showrunner Sera Gamble stopped short of telling us when Sam would re-soul up (it definitely won’t happen before midseason), she said we should look for “a new sort of brotherly rapport” to develop between the pair, beginning with this week’s fairy episode, written by veteran Supernatural scribe Ben Edlund.
“I can only speak for myself, but I kind of find it charming and enjoyable in its own twisted way,” Gamble told EW. “I would never say that it replaces the core relationship that we all love and we all want them to go back to and that Dean is desperately trying to recapture, but for where we are with the story right now, there’s something sort of interesting and fun happening.”
When we leave the boys on Dec. 10 for midseason break, Gamble said we can expect to end on “a hopeful note” in the search to reclaim Sam’s soul. “My hope is that you’ll see the last frame of episode 11 and want to tune in for the first frame of episode 12.”
