The level of squees from the fandom are growing as the "Supernatural" season 9 premiere looms closer. The long summer hiatus will finally come to an end on October 8. Now, we're looking forward to a sneak peek for the premiere to further stoke viewer excitement. Of course, there has been the usual fandom battles of mud-slinging over story arcs, Castiel's character as a regular for S9 and whether Sam or Dean get more screen time over the other, yada yada ... it goes on and on. Now, for season eight it was bad enough I wrote a commentary to address the fuss. However, for those of us who simply love the show for the brothers and their story we're just enjoying the ride without the melodramas, hooray for us.
The extended season 9 promo the CW released is action-packed with a great mix of drama. Watch and enjoy!
The CW has released the first two synopses for the new season:
"I Think I'm Gonna Like it Here"
FALLEN ANGELS — Dean (Jensen Ackles) is frantic after Sam (Jared Padalecki) collapses and the doctor tells Dean his brother won’t make it. Desperate, Dean sends out an all points bulletin via prayer to every angel in the area, asking them to help his brother. In exchange, Dean will owe that angel a favor. Numerous angry angels race to find and kill Dean, but one, Ezekiel (guest star Tahmoh Penikett), gets to him first. Meanwhile, Sam fights for his life and must face some familiar demons to do so. Castiel (Misha Collins) struggles to survive without powers. John Showalter directed the episode written by Jeremy Carver (#902).
"Devil May Care"
ABADDON RISES — Dean (Jensen Ackles) shocks Sam (Jared Padalecki) by popping open the trunk of the Impala and showing him that he has kidnapped Crowley (Mark Sheppard). Kevin (guest star Osric Chau) freaks out when he sees the King of Hell, but Sam and Dean convince him that they need Crowley to find the demons on Earth. Meanwhile, Abaddon (guest star Alaina Huffman) re-emerges and plans to take over Hell. Guy Bee directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb (#901).
Mark your calendars as the premiere looks like it will be an awesome episode.
