As much as I enjoy seeing Dean and Cas team up, I'm relieved that Sam and Dean are back together just like the good old days. But the Winchesters' sweet reunion is not what the hype is all about because as we all know, tonight's the night Paris Hilton haunts our TV screens. It's not as bad as it sounds though. Series creator Eric Kripke even assures fans that a guest stint by the reality TV starlet doesn't herald the end of the world as we know it.
"I don't think we're gassing up the motorcycle to jump the shark yet," Kripke told Entertainment Weekly
of tonight's episode, which finds the hotel heiress playing "a monster who takes the form of Paris Hilton... It's a fun, irreverent episode about modern celebrity. [Fans] should withhold judgment until they see it."
If you missed last week's episode, you can check out the recap here.
"Fallen Idol," the fifth episode of Supernatural
's fifth season, finds Sam and Dean staying true to their mission to work together for a better and different future. But while Dean wants to start hunting again, Sam thinks that they've got bigger problems with the Apocalypse and all.
Dean wins the argument by reasoning that they need to have training wheels first as a team before they address the bigger picture. After all, Lucifer isn't going anywhere.
Their first real case in a long time leads them to a small town whose residents are being killed by famous dead icons. It's odd enough to see Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and James Dean's car haunt people but the episode takes an even more twisted turn when two teenage girls claim their friend was abducted by none other than Paris Hilton. And just like the rest of us, the brothers aren't sure what they are hunting anymore.
