‘Supernatural’ season 9, episode 21 preview: Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki get back to work

What's coming up? -There’s no way of getting around it: “Supernatural: Bloodlines” was just no bueno to us on this end. Rather than being exciting or particularly different, the episode was pretty bland, unsurprising, and didn’t have the sense of fun or humor that the original show does. This is what makes spinning off this show so hard: It’s so unique, and much of its greatness relies heavily on Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles.

Luckily, next week things will start to return to normal with “King of the Damned,” which brings back Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard, and so many other familiar faces in the world that you know more and appreciate. It will also dispose of David and Ennis, who you may not see again unless the “Bloodlines” show is ultimately picked up to series.

If you want to see more of what you can expect specifically here, start with the synopsis below:

Castiel (Misha Collins) captures one of Metatron’s angels (guest star Gordon Woolvet) and asks Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help with the interrogation. Dean eagerly accepts, which doesn’t go unnoticed by Sam. Meanwhile, Abaddon (guest star Alaina Huffman) demands Crowley (Mark Sheppard) help her kill Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles). When he refuses, she reveals her shocking bargaining chip. Also, Castiel (Misha Collins) sets a meeting with Gadreel (guest star Tahmoh Penikett).”

As for the promo below, it focuses mostly on all of the returning faces, Abaddon being awesome, and also the Mark of Cain coming back to haunt Dean. Most of this stuff was largely ignored due to the nature of “Bloodlines,” but it won’t be here.
