Just in case you like to see some blasts from the past play out on “Supernatural,” it looks based on some new reports that we are going to have one of those play out in an upcoming season 9 episode of the show.
According to a new report from SpoilerTV, producers for the CW hit are currently in the process of casting the character of Robin, a waitress in her thirties who bears a surprising connection to Jensen Ackles’ Dean. What is it? She remembers him from a teen romance that they had twenty years ago, and her being back in the picture now could have an interesting impact on him.
Does this mean that a full-fledged romantic arc is on the way for Dean? Not necessarily, and it’s much too early to tell based on just one casting snippet. Robin will first appear in the fifth episode of the season, which means that if nothing else, she will not be around for some of the growing pains that Misha Collins’ Castiel is going to be going through as an angel turned human on earth.
No matter what happens with Robin, let’s just hope that it fares a little bit better than what unfolded in regards to Sam and Amelia last season. This was clearly one of the most-polarizing storylines out there, especially since being with her in many ways represented Jared Padalecki’s character shifting away from Dean and his hunting ways. Since this is a show first and foremost about the Winchesters, nobody really wanted to see that.
What do you think about the idea for this storyline? You can read some more casting intel from “Supernatural” season 9 at the link here, and we will of course have more news as it becomes available.
