'Supernatural' Season 8 Spoilers: Comic Con 2012 Reveals a New Chase, a New Love, and an Old Enemy

Hello, Supernatural fans! I'm back from vacation and return with some juicy spoiler scoop from this weekend's Comic Con. What's in store for our boys in Season 8?

  • 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...
