The new trailer for the upcoming few episodes of “Supernatural” basically has everything you could possibly want in it. Are there some emotional moments? Sure, but there is also a ton of action, a few surprises, and a few occasions in which you will laugh.
The first thing that we should make pretty clear is that we don’t believe that this trailer is just for Tuesday’s “The Hunter Games,” since you see Felicia Day (Charlie) in here, and we know already that she will not be turning up until 10×11. There’s also a return appearance from Curtis Armstrong (Metatron), just so that those of you who understandably love that character can start to get a little bit excited.
Above all else, the focus of this trailer revolves around one fairly-simple question: Is there a way to restore Dean back to the Dean of old? Are the other characters stuck with this brutal version of Jensen Ackles’ character? Dean does not seemingly want to be a psychopathic killer forever, but it is not exactly like he has a whole lot of say in it. The Mark wants what it wants, and as we saw in another recent sneak peek, there is no known way to get rid of it completely … at least not yet. There is still plenty of time still to try.
With the knowledge that there is a “Supernatural” season 11 coming, the way to look at this promo is as a launching pad to all sorts of other great stuff. There’s no pressure to tie everything up this year, though our personal feeling is that we should be on past the Mark before season 10 is over. That way, we can return to some other mythology.
