‘Supernatural’ season 8 spoilers: The Benny problem

Can you fathom that there are only two more “Supernatural” season 8 episodes coming up this year? Sadly, ’tis the truth, as following the cartoon-themed installment next week featuring Castiel’s transition into a hunter, we just have the December 5 episode to go until the CW show takes a well-deserve rest until the new year.

Luckily, it does look as though showrunner Jeremy Carver is making certain that even though the show is saying goodbye, it is doing so with the biggest bang that it can. After all, how else would you describe a title that is as epic as “Citizen Fang”? This episode is going to delve deeply into the relationship between Sam and Benny, and whether or not Ty Olsson’s character is really as noble or as trustworthy as Dean thinks he is.

Basically, here’s the run-down of what we know right now per The CW: Sam is going to suspect Benny of committing murder, but in the end it will be Dean who manages to come to the guy’s defense. But does he really feel that way, or is he really just preferring to take Benny out himself? This is the question worth asking at the moment, since the photo to the left does show Dean hiding a knife behind his back. Then again, would Benny really be so dumb as to fall for something like that here? The whole “I’ve got something you can’t see” shtick really seems a bit too sophisticated for a vampire.

For Castiel fans, there may not be much (if any) of Misha Collins this week. We’ve yet to see him in any promotional photos, and that is typically a strong indicator.

What do you want to see happen during this chunk of “Supernatural” season 8?
