'Supernatural' season 10: Jared Padalecki on demon Dean and keeping a promise

"Supernatural" returns for its 10th season (and 200th episode!) this fall on the CW, and we were on hand in the press room at San Diego Comic-Con to chat with the series stars on Sunday, July 27, about what's coming up.

When season 9 ended, Metatron had stabbed Dean, and Sam declared that he lied and was ready to make a deal to bring his brother back. However, what he didn't know was that he didn't need to because Dean came back himself – but not exactly himself. Instead, the final moments of the season saw Dean open his demon black eyes as Crowley stood as his bedside.

So what did Jared Padalecki have to say about what's next for Sam now that his brother's a demon? Keep reading and watch the video above or here to get the scoop from our roundtable interview.

"That's putting it mildly," the actor admitted when discussing how Sam has been through a lot. So how is Sam going to react to Demon Dean? "At first, Sam obviously doesn't know" that Dean is a demon. Sam was busy trying to summon Crowley in the dungeon while Crowley was busy in Dean's room, waiting for him to open his demon black eyes, thanks to a "rumor" he "heard" about Cain.

"So Sam got back to Dean's room, and Dean was gone," Padalecki teased. When the season begins, Sam doesn't know what happened, other than that his brother is gone. "He has his suspicions," but he doesn't know for sure, he said. "When Sam finds out what happened to his brother, he's not pissed at Dean," he went on to explain. "He just wants to fix the situation. He made a promise to Dean at the end of season 9 that he wasn't going to let him go, and he's going to do whatever it takes." In fact, that "whatever it takes" seems to be teased in the sneak peek that was shown in the panel Sunday morning from season 10's third episode, directed by Jensen Ackles himself, with Dean taunting Sam that he knows what he did while looking for him.

Don't forget to check out the video to see what Jared Padalecki had to say about playing Gadreel last season and more. "Supernatural" season 10 premieres Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. on the CW.
