If you remember back to a recent article that we composed about “Supernatural,” then you will be familiar with the hint that we dropped about a mysterious new character named Naomi dropping in for the seventh episode of season 8 (which is going to be entitled “A Little Slice of Kevin”). Well, let’s just now say that we have some even more welcome information to go along with it.
According to a report from Zap2It, this character (who has yet to be officially cast as of this writing) is going to come across on the surface as somebody who is actually put together pretty well. However, we will find out pretty soon that there are some serious problems that are lurking here underneath the surface, and many of them hold some very big implications for the Winchester brothers and the rest of the cast.
In addition to these details, Naomi is not just someone who is going to show up in one episode only to never be seen again; she is, as suspected, going to be a pretty significant recurring role, and will be around for at least a handful of episodes this season. As for whether or not she could be the rare female character on this show with any sort of extensive role, that is to be seen.
The “Supernatural” premiere date is Wednesday, September 3 at the show’s new time in 9:00 p.m. Eastern, and we will kick things off by seeing some flashbacks to Dean’s time in purgatory while we also get a far greater understanding of who Kevin is and what he actually wants.
Are you excited to find out more about this Naomi character, what sort of role do you think she is going to play? As always, we welcome your theories below, and be sure to check out the first promo for the season by visiting the link here.
