- The theme of this season will be Raiders of the Lost Ark. The brothers are on a quest to find something, a "power source" is all they would reveal, and that brings them back together with Kevin and back into extreme conflict with Crowley:
"The brothers are starting the season on the offense. They really want something. It ties in very deeply with the mythology [and is] something very near and dear to their hearts. They are very much united."
- Dean's time in Purgatory will be short, but what happened to him while he was there will be revealed throughout the season via flashbacks:
“There’s a whole body of events that take place there. There are meetings and conflicts. … It affects the future in all these different ways. They’re going to meet some badasses down there.”
- What happened during the brothers' time apart will also be very important:
“The strength of the show is the bond between these two brothers. But while the sibs were separated, it had a profound effect on each of them. And each has gone a very separate way. They will each carry what happened in their [time] away from each other. In the interim, Dean and Sam have both made new relationships that will carry forward and be very, very important.”
- One of these new relationships is a romance for Sam. Liane Balaban has been cast in the recurring role of Amelia, who is described as “a tragedy-damaged soul” that “soon reveals herself to be a brave, sweet, smart, sarcastic woman.” Considering past romances for the boys, how long she sticks around will be something to be seen.
How excited are you for the new season? It's gonna be a long wait until October 3...
