'Supernatural' Video: First Look at 'Firefly' Star Jewel Staite
Monday, October 3, 2011
The third episode of Supernatural's seventh season is special for
many reasons. It's the second episode directed by star Jensen Ackles,
it flashes back to Sam's childhood and it features a prominent guest
star: Firefly's Jewel Staite.
According to the CW's official episode synopsis, Staite plays Amy, a demon who eats the brains of criminals. She's also a gal from Sam's past. In this clip, we see Amy out on the hunt, and Sam hunting her.
TV nerds (myself included) will undoubtedly be amused by the fact that Staite's character is named Amy Pond, the name of the Doctor's current companion on BBC's Doctor Who. Hopefully that won't be the only Who shout-out in the episode. Maybe she's married to a man named Rory and has a daughter named Melody. As a die-hard Whovian, I'll be keeping a close eye on anything Timelord-y and I have my fingers crossed for an appearance by Crowley since Mark Sheppard has appeared on both Supernatural and Doctor Who.
This also marks the fifth appearance by Colin Ford as Young Sam. His first appearance was back in 2007 in season 3's "A Very Supernatural Christmas."
Supernatural airs Friday at 9pm on the CW.
