With the CW's Supernatural
just under eight weeks away, fans are scrambling to find details on the upcoming season. Luckily, we have wrangled together what amounts to a decent preview of Supernatural
's first month back on the air, new characters and all. In a word, the episodes sound fantastic. Even with the slight descriptions we have, you can see that the season will have a cohesiveness more akin to serialized drama's like Lost and Heroes. Beware, light spoilers lay ahead.
Supernatural 3.01 – The Magnificent Seven
(airs October 4)
This episode deals directly with the aftermath of the boys opening the gate to hell. Seven demons have crossed over altogether and the Winchesters will get a taste of what it is going to be like to clean up the mess in this one. Expect Ruby (Katie Cassidy) to make her debut as Ruby in this episode.
Supernatural 3.02 – The Kids are Alright
(airs October 11)
Dean (Jensen Ackles
) will find out that he may have an eight year old son when the brothers go after a changeling that has a hunger for moms and their kids. Naturally, the paternity issue will be the subplot of the episode. When changeling and the concept of Dean having a kid are mentioned in the same paragraph, though, you can almost smell the fake out.
Supernatural 3.03 – Bad Day at Black Rock
(airs October 18)
The boys, Sam (Jared Padalecki
) in particular, find the hunter community up in arms over the opening of the Hell Gate. Gordon in particular is pointing fingers at Sam, and one of his lackeys ends up kidnapping him. Meanwhile, Dean has his first encounter with Bela (Lauren Cohen).
Supernatural 3.04 – Sin City
(airs October 25)
Dean disappears with a hottie from hell when he hooks up with a demon named Casey. Sam is in pursuit. Dean's deal for Sam will get some airplay in this episode, hopefully insinuating an escape clause.
