Supernatural fans need to start preparing for a long and cold hibernation. It turns out the last new episode of the year will air Thursday, November 19. After that, it’s more than a month and a half of reruns until the second half of season 5 begins in 2010.
That’s the bad news, but there is some good news: Supernatural fans will get five new episodes over the next six weeks. This Thursday brings a new episode, followed by a repeat of the season 5 premiere on October 22. However, from October 29-November 19, it’s four brand new episodes of Supernatural.
WARNING: This article contains Supernatural spoilers for upcoming season 5 episodes.
What will these episodes bring? Look below for details and spoilers on the five remaining episodes of Supernatural for 2009.
Episode 5.06 “I Believe the Children Are Our Future”
This week’s episode sees Sam and Dean coming across a boy who can make his dreams come true, causing things like the Tooth Fairy to become real. Sam and Dean find it kind of cute, but Castiel thinks this half demon child is bad news and wants the little boy dead.

Episode 5.07 “The Curious Case of Dean Winchester”
As the title suggests, this is the Supernatural episode with Dean as an old man. It turns out he rapidly aged after betting years of his life against a demon. First he made the deal with the Crossroads Demon to save Sam and now this? Dean really needs to stop putting his eternal soul on the line.
Episode 5.08 “Are You There God? It’s Me, Sam Winchester”
This is the episode with all the TV parodies, and it will feature Sam and Dean experiencing life as a sitcom, a Japanese game show, CSI and Grey’s Anatomy. If you’re wondering how the Winchesters get into this mess, may I suggest watching “Tall Tales” and “Mystery Spot” again. That’s right, our old pal the Trickster is back for more fun.
Episode 5.09 “The Real Ghostbusters”
The title makes this sound like a potential Ghostfacers episode, and a casting call revealed that Supernatural has two primary guest stars, two normal salesman with surprising bravery, one short a fat, the other tall and skinny. To me, it sounds like they’re either recasting the Ghostfacers, or they’re looking for younger versions of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
Episode 5.10 “Abandon All Hope”
The final episode of 2009 will be a doozy, and according to the Chicago Tribune, it will end with a big cliffhanger leaving fans begging for more. It will also feature special guest star Mark Sheppard as Crowley, a recurring demon with a big role for season 5. If you don’t know who Mark Sheppard is, you should. He was Romo Lampkin on Battlestar Galactica, he’s guest starred on just about every cool TV show on the planet, and he’s an amazing actor.
