We also have tidbits from around the web.
Enstarz has more on episode 9
We know who the Darkness is, and before The CW series breaks for its winter hiatus, viewers will know who is sending Sam (Jared Padalecki) his mysterious visions..
One hint - it has nothing to do with John Winchester.
TV Addict interviewed Ruth Connel about her return this week. The interview contains spoilers for episode 10 as well.
What will Amara do to the townspeople and what is her challenge? Will Dean be able to break Amara's hold on him? Do Sam, Crowley and Rowena try to talk to Lucifer in the Cage? At least it looks like Dean is on board with the plan. Why is Rowena helping? Does she think she can get something out of it? Let us know in the comments or in the discussion thread for episode 9 .
Dean is dressed just like all the angels. Those three men have angel blades, but I can't imagine that only 3 angels are going to stand up against Amara....unless , of course...they are working for her. lol. And yes we've seen Dean wear a suit plenty of times, but in a stand alone picture like that, it really looks like he's "one of them". I know I'm making a mountain out of a molehill, but speculating is fun. It just makes me think that they are showing Dean alongside the angels as if he's a part of them. Makes me think somethings gonna happen with his character and heaven... Like he's gonna say yes to Michael or something something, I dont know.....
Damn, I really wanna know what's going on in that scene now!!! lolololol
I think those are her 'angels'.
