A couple of high profile spoilers came out today, so let's see what they are! 

First from the Huffington Post, they have the exclusive on the time travel episode, episode 12, titled "As Time Goes By."  In that episode, a man is transported into present day.  Turns out that man is Henry Winchester, the paternal grandfather of Sam and Dean (and John's father).  The role will be played by Gil McKinney, who is better known for his roles on ER and Friday Night Lights.  

The entire article can be found here:  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/30/supernatural-gil-mckinney-season-8_n_2220732.html#slide=1785654
 


The other spoiler comes from EOnline, in the chat with Kristin.  This isn't a very specific spoiler, but it involves Sam and his meeting with the previously dead Don.  Remember, they're guessing about whether or not this is real.  

Dina: Hearing a theory floating around that Sam's girlfriend Amelia isn't real on Supernatural. Got any scoop on that? 

Our source close to the show tells us that a love triangle of sorts is coming up between Sam, Amelia and her not so dead ex-husband, so we're assuming she's pretty darn real. (Sorry, we guess?)

Good question! Are they being secretive about it?

I think so.I know who plays their grand father but then again any chance of Don appearing is after the Hellatus :sad: :sad: :sad: ( when i think about hellatus i get sad ),so they might not have shot the scenes and not yet decided on the actor who plays him.

Oh, ok. Not looking forward to it either but after the eons it took for the summer hiatus to go by this one should go by pretty fast. Plenty of time for the wild speculating to spin crazily out of control :-)

I´m kinda really excited about Henry Winchester!

I hope he isn´t an idiot like Samuel.
Would be nice, if the boys had a decent relative for a change ^^
And hey, If they can´t get him back in time, perhaps, he will stay w/the boys.

Have we ever heard anything about John´s father?
He wasn´t around, when John and Mary got together....

Gosh! Now I´m getting all excited.

First trouble with Benny....

LARP and the real girl - which for me is kind of really scary, since I do LARP. Have been for 12 years and I´m anxious about LARPers being portrait as... well... as weird freaks
(you might want to check out Knights of Badassdom ... I´m suspecting the story will go in that direction. Uhm and it proves, that we are weird freaks, but that´s neither here nor there :D )

Time travel with family in 8.12

And then 8.13 ... where there is supposed to be some really deep heart to heart with Dean and Sammy...


And that love triangle spoiler? Laaaaaaaaaame!
With Don being back... well... it already kinda IS a love triangle. But it would be more interesting to learn why and how and who brought him back. And how do you kill him?
Silver? Holy water? Borax?

I knew a lot of people who were LARPers at one point. They were. and remain, (mostly) sane and (completely) entertaining people. I never did it because I was too shy - even though I used to go to games conventions - so I think I am probably the weird person there. :D

I hope they actually have the proportion of guys to gals more like the SPN conventions this time though! Seems only fair, the con episode was way under represented.

OMG, you just made me laugh so much with that last line. I was reading the comment, nodding my head to everything and then- HA! Awesome.

I'll put in- meat grinder? flamethrower?

:eek: No. That bone/blood thingy had to have worked. Please. That "Big Bad" needs to be gone.

I take no responsibility for that theory - I am blaming Fluffy 2107 for setting me off :D

Woodchipper!

erm...Eilf?

NO!
Please just... no....

And LARPers are an extremely resourcefuland talented group of people.
If they would implement that... cool!
I just fear, they wont.
Though, German and American LARP differ quite a bit from their setup and their "reality factor"

Here in Germany, I know people who can recite 10 different kitchen herbs, used for several protection, warding and banishing or cleansing spells out of the blue AND have them with them ^^

Or craft a sword... or.. oh... well... a ballista.
Who can read, write and create runes and bindrunes and so on....
Are fluent in Latin, have complete books with prayers with them and what not.
I mean, I can draw a circle with a geometrically correct hexagram in under 5 minutes .. if I must.
Not to mention, they can JOGG in full 80 pound plate armor for quite a bit. Uphill.
Not to mention sword fighting, archery, polearm battle... you name it... you have it somewhere.


Anyways, I still want Adam back, or at least confirmation, he´s not in the pit.
Can´t we just do a little Twitter storm for him?

Hah! it was you that set me off mentioning Borax - you brought it on yourself! :D

My LARPer tribe are all Irish / British - I have watched Vampire weddings and King Arthur divorcing Guinevere for being barren (you should have seen the conversation about THAT at the bar) and Terry Pratchett based stories, just what I can think of at the moment. If reenactment stuff is included in LARPing (not sure) then a bunch of them went to the Gathering (I think that is what it was called, it's a while ago) in the UK one year and fought in the battles there, there is a lot of Viking based stuff in Ireland at the moment because of a 1000 year anniversary. LARPing is alive and well ...

But I am not sure any of them can speak Latin or make spells...

What would your twitter hashtag be? - since apparently #LuciferRising got the fans in trouble at the beginning of season 5. #AdaminHell might work? :lol:

Has anybody noticed that they are giving us pretty regularly timed spoilers on all of the eps so far, even up to 8x13, but absolutely nothing on 8x10 and 8x11? I wonder if those two will clear up a lot of the ?HUH? on Sam's story. It seems that the PTB are keeping pretty tight lipped on those two eps.

Are they? That's fascinating, E!
I really hadn't thought about that.
