‘Supernatural’ season 8, episode 15 preview: Jensen Ackles’ facial expression wins

SupernaturalWhile we don’t know just yet as to whether or not Wednesday night’s “Supernatural” season 8 episode “Man’s Best Friend with Benefits” is going to be the best of the year so far we can at least say this with some confidence: this may be one of the best preview clips the show has ever given us.

The premise of this is simple but perfectly effective: Sam opens the door after hearing the sound of a dog to find a doberman sitting on the welcome mat, and he brings the dog insider on order to try and look for her owner. As soon as he realizes that there are no tags on her collar, Dean shows up, and Sam quickly meets him outside and tries to explain away what he is about to see.

We don’t want to spoil exactly what line Dean uses upon opening the door and seeing a woman rather than a dog lying on the bed, but Jensen Ackles’ facial expression here alone is worth the price of admission. Even though these characters have matured over the years, there are times that we are reminded that this is the same ol’ Dean … and this is one of them.

As for the actual story of this episode, we know that the owner / lover of this dog / woman (strange as that sounds) is going to play a role at some point. We’re not entirely sure at the moment just how great of an impact this will have on the overall story of the show, but to be honest we don’t really even care at the moment, at least so long as it stays this funny.
