After an episode of “Supernatural” season 9 tonight that brought us a ton of Castiel and also some surprising news from Crowley, we now push forward with an episode in “Bad Boys” that brings us a very different sort of energy. Not only that, but it will spend its time telling us the story of another character in Jensen Ackles’ Dean, and what he did at an early age that is going to surprise even Sam.
Since the promo below is really a little bit of a waste when it comes to backstory (but it does win in its presentation of creepy things), you are going to get a little bit of something more worth watching courtesy of the synopsis below:
“Dean (Jensen Ackles) gets a call from an old friend named Sonny (guest star Blake Gibbons) asking for help with a ghost. Sonny runs a home for delinquent boys, and Dean was sent there for stealing food when he was younger. Sam (Jared Padalecki) is stunned he never knew this about his brother and asks for more information, but Dean dodges his questions. Another murder occurs while Sam and Dean are at the house, so they scramble to find the culprit before anyone else dies. Meanwhile, Dean looks up an old girlfriend (guest star Erin Karpluk) and recalls his time at the house.”
Personally, we do find it still surprising that there are things when it comes to Dean that continue to surprise his brother, since these two are supposed to be pretty darn close in the present day (though, to be fair, they often don’t spend a lot log time dwelling on the past versus trying to figure out where their future is going to lie). They are not going to presumably having much time dealing with the angel story this week, given that for one thing, all hope seems lost. Plus, we also don’t have any evidence that Castiel is going to be appearing in this one in the first place.
