Talk about burying a lead! EW gives us more details about tonight’s highly anticipated meta episode and decides to wait to provide a little detail like a big, shocking death (or is it deaths?) until the end of the article! Here, see the spoilers for yourself:
In the first five minutes of Supernatural‘s meta episode tonight, we’re introduced to the term “hunter’s helper,” someone’s butt gets a love tap, and Dean refers to himself as a “painted whore.” Yup, this episode, where Dean and Sam travel into an alternate universe where they are actors named Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, is everything super fans of the show have been waiting for and filled with inside-fandom jokes (alt-universe Misha Collins is a Twitter addict who wears ugly sweaters, producer Robert Singer gets mocked for naming a character after himself, and the season’s new showrunner, Sera Gamble, pokes major fun at herself).
But there’s also a small dose of mythology, which comes mostly toward the end of the episode, and an update on the holy war. Cas still won’t elaborate on the details (give it up already, man!), but it becomes apparent that the stakes of this battle are high when we learn of an unlikely alliance. But if you watch for no other reason, watch for the shocking death (…or is it deaths?). Like how I left that for the end?
Any thoughts on who will buy it tonight?
