‘Supernatural’ Season 8 Scoop

According to a report at Entertainment Weekly, the Winchester brothers, aka Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, on the long-running series Supernatural will be getting a “blast from the past” with plans for a return visit by Sarah Blake (actress Taylor Cole from ‘The Glades’ and ‘The Event’), who was last seen in the 19th episode of the first season (yes, you read that right – the FIRST season). And that won’t be the only former guest star who will show up in the final episode of the show’s current season, as there will be at least one more face from even earlier in the show’s history who will be coming back. (Sadly there has been no reveal on who that familiar face will be, as yet.)

Executive producer Jeremy Carver had this to share about the familiar faces that will be cropping up on the series, “These blasts from the past are related to the trials (that Sam is undergoing in the hopes to close the gates of hell forever) and not in a very good way.” He continued that these return visits all lead “to a big conclusion with Crowley (recurring guest star Mark Sheppard)…I think we’re going to see Crowley rising to a new level of ruthlessness we haven’t seen before in order to defend himself and his kingdom, as it were. I think we’re going to see Crowley presented with a new twist on things that will affect him forever, as well.”

The next new episode of the 8th season of ‘Supernatural’ will air on Wednesday, April 24 on The CW at 9/8c with the return of familiar face Charlie Bradbury, as played by sci-fi favorite Felicia Day.
