"Supernatural" is having a strong eighth season and is continuing its path when it picks up from the Thanksgiving holiday with episode eight, "Hunteri Heroici". The new episode is set to air on Wednesday, November 28 on the CW Network at 9 p.m. The eighth episode of the season will see the Winchester's and Castiel on a case together where the deaths resemble cartoon deaths. Also, this episode has Castiel declaring he wants to be a hunter to Dean and Sam. I suspect this episode will provide some comedic moments with the cartoon-like deaths. I'm eager to see how Castiel manages his first real attempt at being a hunter. Hey, SPNers enjoy the comedy of this episode because episode nine, "Citizen Fang" will take us into our second holiday mini-hiatus or "Hellatus" (to those of using fandom speak) with everything but comedy.
The CW synopsis for "Hunteri Heroici":
CARTOONS AREN’T ALWAYS FUNNY — Castiel (Misha Collins) tells Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) that he’s decided to become a hunter like them. Sam and Dean aren’t sold on the idea but agree to investigate a case Cas found where a man’s heart literally burst through his chest. The guys discover there has been more than one odd murder in the small town and all of them resemble cartoon deaths. Paul Edwards directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb.
What you can expect from this episode:
- Cas on his first case with Sam and Dean
- Cartoon-like deaths (this could get messy)
- Brief Promo for "Hunteri Heroici"
- Much needed comedic episode prior to "Citizen Fang"
