The Leviathan have taken virtually everything from Dean and Sam this season on Supernatural.
The hard-to-kill creatures have stripped them of resources (R.I.P. Bobby’s books and house), friends (R.I.P. Castiel and Bobby), and familiar comforts (WHERE ARE YOU, IMPALA!?). But before the brothers dive deep into the battle for revenge toward the end of the season, Supernatural will offer up some lighter episodes, executive producer Robert Singer told EW today, starting tonight with “Out With the Old.”
“It sort of gets back to stuff we’ve done in year’s past with a twist at the end. And I think it’ll be interesting for the fans, without giving away too much,” says Singer, who penned the hour. Further ahead, Castiel will return (but “he’s not quite the Castiel we knew,” Singer teases) and the show will also see a return from quirky hunter Garth (D.J. Qualls) as the brothers battle a monster that can only be seen when a person is drunk. “The monster is invisible to everyone and there’s no one better to take on the drinking than Dean,” says Singer.
Of course, per Supernatural’s usual strategy, the lighter fare will offset the heavier episodes that tend to pile up at the end of the season. This year is no different. Following Bobby’s death, the hunt for top evil-doer Dick Roman has been full speed ahead — but with little result (much to Dean’s annoyance). Toward the end of the season, the boys will have their time to right the wrongs thrust upon them by their foes. READ FULL STORY
