"Supernatural" season 9 is bringing in a "Psych" star in a pretty cool role in the upcoming episode 11, "First Born," written by Robbie Thompson and directed by John Badham, and on Tuesday, Jan. 14, the CW released promotional photos teasing what to expect.

In this upcoming episode of "Supernatural," Crowley (Mark Sheppard) asks Dean (Jensen Ackles) to help him find "The First Blade," the only blade that can kill Abaddon (Alaina Huffman) so he can reclaim his place as King of Hell. Dean does owe Crowley that favor for helping Sam (Jared Padalecki) and does want Abaddon dead as well, so he reluctantly agrees and the two set off on a road trip. But they're completely unprepared when they find out that Cain (Timothy Omundson), the first son, has the blade.

Meanwhile, Sam is back at the bunker with Castiel (Misha Collins), who notices there is some leftover grace inside Sam, and if they can extract it, they can use it to track Gadreel. However, there's a big problem: the procedure could do permanent damage to Sam.

The "First Born" photos in the slideshow offer a look at Castiel performing the procedure on Sam, Cain just sitting back and shucking corn while Dean's busy fighting for his life, and Crowley making an entrance.

"Supernatural" season 9 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on the CW. "First Born," written by Robbie Thompson and directed by John Badham, airs Jan. 21. What do you think of these episode 11 photos?
