The official synopsis for Episode 7.01, "Meet The New Boss" has been released.
Supernatural Episode 7.01 - "Meet The New Boss"
CASTIEL TAKES ON HIS NEW ROLE AS GOD â€” Castiel (Misha Collins) doesnâ€™t kill Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Bobby (Jim Beaver) but warns them not to interfere in his business. Assuming his new role as God, Castiel sets out to right some of the wrongs in the world. Dean decides they should bind Death (guest star Julian Richings) and order him to stop Castiel, but the former angel is one step ahead of them, leaving Dean to face a very angry Death. Meanwhile, Sam struggles to deal with the broken wall in his head. Phil Sgriccia directed the episode written by Sera Gamble (#701).
EW.com has a casting spoiler!
For episode 7.06, 90210's James Patrick Stewart will play a new baddie! According to the article, "EW has learned exclusively that James Patrick Stewart, who CW frequents know as Naomiâ€™s dad on 90210, will be appearing in the sixth episode of Supernatural this season as a new baddie named Richard Roman. Showrunner Sera Gamble explains: â€œRichard is a very canny, charming, well-connected new adversary. When we first meet him, Crowley has sought him out specifically to join forces with him to pursue common interests. Put it this way: Crowley doesnâ€™t bring a muffin basket to just anyone.â€ Stewart, whose other credits include All My Children and CSI, is set to appear in one episode so far."
- Zap2it releases a casting spoiler for season 7.In episode 7.06, now called â€œSlash Fictionâ€, we are introduced to an new character, Frank Devereaux, described as a "mad computer geniusâ€.That character will be played by veteran actor Kevin McNally.
- Sandra Gonzalez of Insider TV recently interviewed Mark Sheppard regarding his characters on â€œLeverageâ€ and â€œSupernaturalâ€.Below is his comment on â€œSupernaturalâ€.
â€œâ€¦. â€œSera [Gamble] said that what Cas has said about this demon was going to be explored at some point, and that she has plans for this demon. But who knows? Maybe they just blew me up,â€ he says of his confirmed appearance in episode 1.
Sheppard, a longtime viewers of the CW show, also says heâ€™s noticed Supernatural has gone back to basics, focusing on character development. â€œItâ€™s going back to what made the show so popular,â€ he explains. â€œYouâ€™ve had these big, angels and demons wars, and the devil, and death. These things will obviously continue on in some way, but the root of it is Dean and Sam and I think itâ€™s fascinating. Itâ€™s very much back to the root element.â€
But will that â€œroot elementâ€ include more appearances by Crowley? Of course, he wonâ€™t say. He did, however, hint: â€œItâ€™s a lot of fun when Crowley is connected to the boys in a lot of ways. The fans have enjoyed that connection. They do well in that situation. It always pays off very well. Iâ€™m looking forward to seeing whether that happens or not.â€

This is from Guy Norman Bee's twitter (@guynormanbee). He posted a picture from the location shoot where he was filming episode 7.02. It looks like the back of the old Riverview Hospital where they filmed "Aslyum." Most curious!
EOnline did an interview with Misha Collins at the TCA Press Tour, and he talked about a diminished role for Castiel this season:
""The character is not providing that comic relief anymore, which I think is fine. I think that sort of ran its course," Collins says. "It's one of the things that's great about the show. They don't rest on their laurels. Just because something is working, doesn't mean they keep doing it. They like to change it up and try something new and it doesn't get staleâ€”and that's cool."
"I'm not playing the fish out of water sidekick anymoreâ€”that element is gone," Collins continues, joking, "The show is not going to be funny anymore. Period."
While Collins wouldn't divulge too much about Castiel's role (or ultimate goal) this season, he teases, "He's God and he's trying to rectify the wrongs in the world and having a difficult time doing it and meeting with both external and internal obstacles."
Could one of those obstacles be his friendship with Dean? Of Cas' relationship with Dean, Collins would only say it's "definitely a changed and diminished dynamic." Take from that what you will.
So how has the transition from loyal sidekick to being big and bad worked out for Collins? "It's a different position to be in. I was always supporting them. We were always fighting on the same side and now we're definitely at loggerheads. It's a totally different dynamic."
- Spoiler TV posted the title for episode 7.05 of â€œSupernaturalâ€ as "Shut Up, Dr. Phil"
- Zap2it spoke with Collins at the Television Critics Association party on Wednesday night, and he helped to shed some light on Castiel's current point of view. "I'll spoil this right now for you -- he does start the season as both a wrathful and vengeful god," Collins says. "But he's also righteous, in his own mind. He thinks that he's doing the right thing."
In the Season 6 finale, Castiel brought down the "wall" in Sam's (Jared Padalecki) mind that protected him from his memories of hell, destroying Sam's mental health in a way that's unfathomable to any other human.
Don't hold your breath for Castiel to make good on that promise, though. "No, he wants Sam to suffer for a while," Collins says. "Sam's basically f***ed."
SFO released a number of tweets from people who claim to have seen Mark Pellegrino on the set filming "Supernatural" today, which is currently filming Guy Norman Beeâ€™s episode 7.02 â€œHello Cruel Worldâ€.
If true, WOW!!!!
