In this upcoming "SPN" episode, directed by Misha Collins, Sam (Jared Padalecki) hears about a case where straight-laced people are turning into violent murderers and suspects possession. Dean (Jensen Ackles) tells him to investigate without him, and while interviewing the locals, Sam meets Julia (Jenny O'Hara), who tells him the Men of Letters came to town in 1958 and about Henry Winchester (Gil McKinney) and Josie Sands (Alaina Huffman).

Meanwhile, Dean struggles with the after effects of the Mark of Cain, and while Sam is away on the case, Crowley (Mark Sheppard) tests Dean.

The "Mother's Little Helper" photos in the slideshow offer a look at all aspects of this episode. Check out Henry Winchester and Josie Sands, dressed as a priest and a nun, Sam and Dean in the bunker (and it doesn't look like things are going to get better between them anytime soon), Sam investigating on his own and behind-the-scenes photos of Misha Collins directing.

"Supernatural" season 9 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on the CW. "Mother's Little Helper" airs March 25. What do you think of the episode 17 photos?
