When we first heard the news that we are going to be meeting an ancient angel named Metatron on “Supernatural” season 8, we automatically assumed that the character was going to be spending some time with Misha Collins’ Castiel considering the similar lineage that the two parties share. However, we are learning now that this may not necessarily be the case … or at least that if Castiel interacts with him, he may not be alone.
Speaking to TVLine, show executive producer Jeremy Carver does his best to tease some of what is going to be an exciting story coming up for Jensen Ackles’ Dean while Sam (Jared Padalecki) is put through some of the trials in the latest effort to obtain the tablet:
“I can’t say much about the Trials, but when it comes to what might be in store for Dean, I have one word: Tron.”
Based on what we know already, we’re pretty sure that Carver is not talking about the Tron that involves Jeff Bridges (though seeing him appear on this show would be pretty awesome).
At the moment, the Metatron character (which does not have a name attached to it yet) will be appearing in a number of the episodes to close off this season, and the door could be open for more in the future given what happens. Since we know that the tablet story is only going to intensify, and that Misha Collins is a full-on regular for season 9, it would certainly not come as a shock to see even more of the character moving into the fall.
