Have you been missing “Supernatural” season 8 over the holiday season? If so, The CW has gift-wrapped something rather nice, and we have it for you now almost as a late Christmas present: the official synopsis for the show’s return to the air on January 16 entitled “Torn and Frayed.”
This episode, at least based on what we know so far, is going to have a little bit of something for everyone. We’re sure that Misha Collins fans will rejoice getting to see Castiel working once again with Naomi, and that Crowley is involved in some shady business. At the same time, that polarizing Amelia plot (especially when it comes to how it has caused so much tension for Sam and Dean) is only going to get more dramatic moving forward:
“Naomi (guest star Amanda Tapping) tells Castiel (Misha Collins) that Crowley (guest star Mark Sheppard) is holding an angel captive and Castiel must rescue him before Crowley finds out their secrets. Castiel turns to Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help. Meanwhile, Sam (Jared Padalecki) meets with Amelia (guest star Liane Balaban) who asks him to make a choice: stay with her or leave and never contact her again.”
While there are a contingent of fans out there who want to see Sam happy, it doesn’t really feel at the moment like Amelia is the right lady for him. After all, can’t he have the best of both worlds and find a woman that does not allow him to change the life (and the job) that he currently has? After all, we already know what happened the last time he was with her.
What’s your take on Sam here: do you think he will choose to stay with her and thus abandon many of his previous plans, or once again join Dean in going about the family business? If you want to see a new holiday “gift” via Jensen Ackles, be sure to check it out over here.
