'Supernatural' Video: 'Buffy' Reunion and a Witchy Domestic Dispute
Tuesday, October 18, 2011
This week Supernatural is playing home to a Buffy/Angel
reunion with special guest stars James Marsters (Spike) and Charisma
Carpenter (Cordelia) as a married couple engaged in a witchy battle.
With two huge guest stars to sci-fi fans, it's sure to be a big episode, and now you can check out a clip of Sam and Dean investigating the strange behavior.
Aside from the very cool Buffy connection, this episode (hilariously titled "Shut Up, Dr. Phil") marks another reunion, of sorts, between Supernatural and the writing team of Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner. The two wrote the first season episode "Route 666" but haven't written anything since then. Now in season 7, the two are back with a new script.
Another strange fact is that Marsters' character is named Don Stark, which happens to be the name of an actor best known for playing Donna's fro-loving dad on That '70s Show. He also appeared on Supernatural in the second season episode "Hollywood Babylon" as a movie producer. Between this and the use of Doctor Who's Amy Pond, perhaps the Supernatural writers have given up on making up new names and just decided to start naming characters after real or fictional people.
Supernatural airs Friday at 9pm on the CW.
