Now that we are a day away from the “Supernatural” season 9 premiere, let’s start to get to the nitty-gritty and describe what could be a very important episode in setting up the mythology of what comes next in the weeks ahead.
The first thing to take note of here is that Sam is not going to start this episode off in a weak physical state. What happened last year with the sacrifice is not just going to take a toll physically; it also will also be emotionally. By the end of the the premiere, something is going to happen that will make Sam feel very much like he is being left out in the cold. Will Dean ever clue him in on a new secret? Given that Winchester friction is a tale as old as time with this show, it will last for at least a little while.
But when it comes to Sam and Dean, expect this story to be a little bit more of a slow burn as they try to get back in the thick of things, and really just try to figure out what to do now following the angels falling down to earth. This is, after all, going to be what “I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here” is really going to be all about. Castiel’s story will be super-important as he starts to become used to life as a human. This is going to be difficult, and it will also be hilarious. Eventually, Castiel will start to move forward into a different phase of his life and possibly even develop romantic feelings for somebody, but that’s not going to happen until he figures out some of his bearings. The other interesting angel arriving this week is Ezekiel, and there are two things worth noting about this character now:
1. Their powers are significantly stronger than Castiel’s at this point.
2. They also are not going to be so uniquely sided with the Winchesters.
