After a long hiatus, Supernatural
returns tonight with the much talked about zombie storyline. But forget Zombieland, Night of the Living Dead
or 28 Days Later
. The show is taking a different approach to flesh-hungry reanimated corpses and we find out about it in the episode "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid."
Tonight's installment takes place in Bobby's hometown, which strongly suggests that the 16th episode of the fifth season is Bobby-centric. And any Supernatural
fan knows that anything involving Bobby is awesome, funny and heartbreaking all at the same time.

But knowing that something's off with Bobby, Dean probes further until he comes face-to-face with Bobby's dead wife-turned-zombie (guest star Carrie Anne Fleming), who is unaware of what happened to her. The episode takes an emotional turn when the boys tell Bobby to kill his wife as the zombies start turning evil.
