Here are the promotional pictures for the next episode.

Jody and Claire look pretty beaten up here. Sam and Dean both interact with Claire. There are lots of mysterious symbols. What do you get from these pictures? Any clues as to what is going on here? Let us know in the comments or in the discussion thread for episode 12 .

Sam looks pissed. Dean concerned. Claire looks like she survives (damn!). Alex looks like an afterthought.

Bloody machetes? Please God, not vampires again.

Oddly enough, no Casifer.

Is Sam carrying tupperware?!!!! ! WTH? But damn he looks cute in that pic. You notice I'm studiously avoiding any mention of Claire. If I don't acknowledge her, she doesn't really exist, right?:)
# AlyCat22 2016-01-28 21:15
No Hon, I think it's going to take some heavy duty Hoodoo, hex bags, sigils and a crossroads deal... unfortunately.

Actually last ep she was bearable, as long as they don't MarySue the character or dumb down the boys I think it will be alright. I just hope it doesn't turn into a "Hey! Women Power!" type storyline.
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 07:24
last ep she was bearable
KN should put that on her resume: "widely acclaimed for my bearable performance in my last SPN ep." Sorry, but I can't stop laughing at all of the ways posters are finding to express that they're less than thrilled with Claire's reappearance.
# AlyCat22 2016-01-29 11:10
She fine as an actress it's just the "another smart mouth" teen I'm not keen on. Is anyone fearful for Jodie in this ep?
# E 2016-01-29 12:15
Agreed! I wonder if that girl has ever smiled or spoken a kind word to anyone. I am tired of her sneering sarcasm. I'd never let a teenager speak to me in a tone like she uses and I'd never let a teen of mine speak to anyone else that way either. I'm dreading that the episode will be all the stupid "adults" doubting poor Claire and her proving everyone wrong and then saying "I told you so" in her incredibly unpleasant way.
# BoGirle 2016-01-28 21:43
If I don't acknowledge her, she doesn't really exist, right?:)
Descartes walks into a bar and sits down. The waitress comes up to him and asks, "Would you like to order?" He answers "I think not" and disappears.

So, I guess there's hope isn't there.

# Barbara Maake 2016-01-28 22:13
Nothing like a good Descartes joke!
# cheryl42 2016-01-28 21:38
Well whatever the story and whoever is in it....dam Jared's hair looks spectacular. And Jensen in a black trench coat works for me. Done!
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-28 22:16
Give his hair stylist a raise! His hair has been looking awesome this season! No matter what happens to Sam or his storyline this season, we'll always have his S 11 hair.:D
disgruntled viewer
# disgruntled viewer 2016-01-29 09:59
RT revealed that it is not a stylist :D FYI, there's no wind in this shot. @jarpad can move his hair with his mind.
# E 2016-01-29 12:19
Yes.... the force is strong in this one............ ............... .......
# YellowEyedSam 2016-01-29 18:13
He's using his powers. Duh :P
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 19:08
That is hilarious. I think the 3rd star of the show is Sam's hair, not Baby. :)
# sylvia37 2016-01-28 21:58
Well on the plus side, Nancy Won wrote it and she wrote Thin Lizzie. I really liked that episode so maybe it won't be horrible.
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 07:18
maybe it won't be horrible.
Now sylvia, if you set the bar that high for the ep you're bound to be disappointed!:)
# sylvia37 2016-01-29 09:43
I know, right? Don't let my optimism get to you.
# anonymousN 2016-01-29 03:08
Looks like Dean is hunting and sam has taken up cooking classes.Sam might be angry because he did not have enough tupperware.Tota l of five pics of sam, Another Dean guest star heart to heart at the doubt them gushing about Dean.I am feeling sick.
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 07:22
Here's how I imagine the direction went:
"Jensen, hold the bloody machete a little higher so the blood really shows on camera. Jared, move your hand a little so the audience gets a good look at the potato salad in that tupperware." :)
# AlyCat22 2016-01-29 11:14
Maybe Dean is going to machete the Tupperware? Yes Dean, put an end to the evilly overpriced Tupperware!!!
There has to be more to this episode otherwise based on these pics it's going to be a snoozefest. A vampiric snoozefest.
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 19:11
I'm not sure what to make of the pics, but I admit I'm curious about why Sam is toting all of that food around. Maybe Jody and the girls made Sam and Dean some home cooked food to bring back to the bunker....zzzzz zzzz...wake me up when the ep is over and Claire is gone (forever I hope).;)
# eilf 2016-01-29 21:05
That's not Sam carrying food it's actually Jared's lunch. (I now have an entire storyline in my head where Gen sent food back with him from Texas after the weekend. I bet she does, you know :D ).
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 21:35
I'm sure you're right about Gen. But now you have me wondering just what a typical Jared lunch consists of and what his home cooked favorites are. Maybe he was hungry when he filmed this scene because he's tightened his grip on the tupperware in that second pic. I don't know why, but it's cracking me up that I'm now analyzing the meaning of the tupperware in the ep.:o
# eilf 2016-01-29 21:45

# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 22:13
:) He cracks me up.
# Jen 2016-01-29 21:08
WOW you guys have just invented a new monster and you didn't relize And I get to name it ------- actually we could just call it Tupperwar, the only way to kill it is by a Bloody Machett
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 21:37
I'm betting on the tupperware. that stuff is practically indestructible! And it makes that scary burping sound when you close it!:)
# Jen 2016-01-29 21:09
Double up
# Jen 2016-01-29 21:09
WOW you guys have just invented a new monster and you didn't relize And I get to name it ------- actually we could just call it Tupperware, the only way to kill it is by a Bloody Machett
# eilf 2016-01-29 21:53
It's a movie franchise:
Tupperware: the Movie (they came home, they ate lunch, they had leftovers)
Return to Tupperware: The Unknown Frozen Lump In The Back Of The Freezer; A Tale of Horror and Suspense
Revenge of the Tupperware! (tagline: In a world where she had 32 containers and only 7 lids and none of them matched, how was she going to pack her lunch?)
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 22:25
I laughed really hard at the episode descriptions, especially Return to Tuppware. Come on eilf. I'm sure you can think of a few more to entertain me!
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 22:34
Ooh, how about "Tupperware: the final battle. Two housewives come to fisticuffs at the potluck supper when each claims the same tupperware as hers."

Nah, that's not nearly as good as yours.:(
# eilf 2016-01-29 22:48
I like that one :D

I think we all have tupperware horror stories that are passed down from generation to generation (or sideways anyway) and told around the camp fire while ... eating cookies out of a tupperware container ... *cue Jaws scare music*

Ok, last one - children's movie:

Tupperella. "Thaw that food faster or it's back in the microwave you go my lad! Mwahaha"
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 23:17
And surely we all have commandeered a friend's tupperware by conveniently forgetting to return it. My finest tupperware is one that I've been "borrowing" for about 10 years now.:) I'm going to try to come up with a better movie idea because mine was mediocre. I fear that I'm going to be dreaming about tupperware tonight. I have never written or even thought about tupperware as much as in the past few hours. Truly, my life is rather pathetic.:)
# eilf 2016-01-29 23:22
A heist movie! :D
Well we must entertain ourselves somehow!
# Jen 2016-01-30 00:18
Hey guys maybe this is the new train hint Like early in the Season Alycat and I wondered if the train whistles meant anything. Then when Sam went to the cage no more train whistles ......................
We get TUPPERWARE now this half of the season we much watch carefully for tupperware This ep we see 4 all with matching lids Now lets see if they turn up next wk at the bunker !!!!!!
It really could maybe mean something Dean could put them in his glory box for when he and Amara become one OOOOHHHHH the plot thickens :o:p:o:p LOL Its good to have a laugh
# AlyCat22 2016-01-30 16:09
Have you ever loaned out Tupperware only to get it back STAINED!?! That's incentive for murder right there! *Shifty eyes* I never did tho, honest. No one will ever proove that I hacked my neighbor up into tiny Tupperware sized pieces and buried them all in my backy- uh, yeah great movie titles guys!
# AlyCat22 2016-01-30 16:11
Ooh the title would be "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Tupperware" ;)
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-30 19:34
Have you ever loaned out Tupperware only to get it back STAINED!?!

Thank God I never suffered that horrible fate! How did you go on after that? And what did you put your leftovers in? plastic baggies? *shudders* :)
# AlyCat22 2016-01-31 03:41
Well after I took revenge and did away with my neighb- uh, that is to say, I never used it again and it was relegated to the far reaches of the cupboard so that it stayed out of sight. But I kept it, oh yes, I kept it, as a reminder to never again lend my Tupperware out lest I find that I would have to dig up the rest of my backyard after I've had to deal with another person who has crossed the bounds of proper Tupperware care.

How do I deal? I've never been the same since. Why anytime I even glance at a piece of Tupperware I break out in hives and start hyperventilatin g. Plastic bags are useless. I've turned to the throwaway versions and that seems to have lessened my anxiety. It's been a long road...
# Sharon 2016-01-29 03:54
Do not get alot from this pictures at all. No offence to the character but why are we revisiting Claire ?
# Didi 2016-01-29 04:07
Maybe it's Claire lying on the slab with a toe tag from the Keep Grinding video. If not, then there's no reason for this ep to exist.
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 07:25
Maybe it's Claire lying on the slab with a toe tag

Don't go getting my hopes up Didi! It's not nice!:)
# AlyCat22 2016-01-29 11:15
Or Alex. We see several pics of Jody and Claire but only one of Alex. I'm thinking it's Jody but from one of Claire's nightmares or hallucinations?
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 21:41
Maybe Alex goes back to her vampire-loving ways and Claire kills her. And then Jody beats the crap out of Claire and kicks her out. Now THAT might prove to be an interesting episode.
# spnlit 2016-01-30 16:09
Good one!
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-30 19:35
It's actually kind of worrying how much I enjoy coming up with scenarios for Claire's demise.:)
# YellowEyedSam 2016-02-01 11:48
I don't mind Claire so I wont be thinking of creative ways to get rid of her :P
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-02-01 19:44
I'll handle that task for you YES!:)
# AlyCat22 2016-01-30 16:16
And once she's kicked out Claire is killed by a ghost of a groundskeeper from the nearby golf club who didn't appreciate her impersonation of Happy Gilmore...
# Didi 2016-01-30 16:47
That cracked me up.
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-30 23:09
Hmmm, what do you think would be the ghost's murder weapon of choice? An iron or a wood?;)
# AlyCat22 2016-01-31 03:43
A golf cart. ;)
# Jen 2016-01-31 05:46
Laughing so hard hahahaaaa Golf cart bearing straight ahead at Claire Novak hahahahaaaaaaaa aa
# percysowner 2016-01-29 04:39
I admit, although I think Claire was not handled well last season, I can see where she could have an interesting part to play in the show. Unfortunately, instead of allowing Claire to be legitimately angry at Cas, her last appearance was all about making us feel bad that Cas got her father (and eventually her mother) killed while making sure Cas was absolved of any and all blame. One way to do that was to make Claire seem petty, self involved and wrong, while making the angel that kidnapped her father seem put upon. I'm hoping that the improvement in writing this season may extend to Claire. I'm willing to give this a chance.

As to why Claire well Cas is currently trapped in the reconstructed vessel of Jimmy and Claire is canonically a potential vessel for Cas. They could be setting up a situation where Cas takes over Claire's body again as a way to save him from Lucifer. Or they may be looking at how a Wayward Daughters spin off could work. There is some potential here and I'm not going to complain that a female character is being brought back. I just hope they do more justice to the character of Claire.
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-29 07:33

I don't know Percys. IMO the only thing more annoying than Casifer has been so far would be Casalaire! Or would that be Clairstiel? :)

Seriously, I REALLY hope they don't go there.
# Didi 2016-01-29 17:35
Samandean, I'm so with you. Please show, don't go there.

I would rather Cas stay in hell, or wherever he is, than have Claire as his vessel.

There's always another way...nevermind , not going there
# Jen 2016-01-29 04:44
Sadly I don't think we get rid of Clarie --- I don't think we need this ep either the show is on a roll they stick this ep in and its like going over a speed hump really slowly
Maybe if it was like Sam & Dean needing a break so went to check on Jody and it was a light fun ep That mght be ok. ?????? My fears are the same as everybodys, PLEASE don't DUMB Down the Boys, don't make the girls into WOman power Please keep it simple
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-30 19:36

Jen, nobody likes a killjoy, so keep your gloomy thoughts to yourself.:)
# Shante 2016-01-29 06:00
see yall for episode 13. the promo scared me away from watching, i know Nancy wrote it, i was looking forward to it until i saw the promo
# E 2016-01-29 12:24
Well we clearly see Dean interacting with Claire in several different scenes but apparently Sam's only interaction is over Tupperware. :(
# E 2016-01-29 12:27
Is it obvious enough that I am not that interested in this episode? Yeah... not that interested in this episode like AT ALL. It looks as though I will have to work on Wednesday evening this week so I'll most likely miss it, so not that big of a deal. I'll come here on Thursday morning to see how people felt about and catch it later if everyone is tripping over themselves with praise. I'm not counting on that. Poor Ms. Won really pulled the short end of the stick in this round of the writers rotation.
# spnlit 2016-01-31 19:12
That's because Sam is smart!
# spnlit 2016-01-30 16:13
Oh no, Dean is wearing a trench coat and has his hand on Claire's shoulder .....Did Casifer rub off on Dean or worse????? :):):)
# spnlit 2016-01-30 19:07
Claire's story to get you all ready for the next exciting episode.
Claire herself was a bright precocious serious child who was briefly possessed by an angel -Cas who killed demons to save her and her mother. She knew demons and angels existed and had experienced their power and purpose. But instead of developing into a smart, purposeful young person she became a selfish, whiny entitled teenager who just was pissed off that Castiel an angel ruined her life. Claire tells Cas that her mother vanished to “go find herself” and was left with her grandma until she died and then placed in foster homes. Claire, could have learned something good from her grandma and could have stayed in foster care and got a college scholarship or even, having been touched by an angel, joined a convent. But instead she ran away from her foster home and chose a life of crime all the while still blaming Castiel for her crap life. Castiel wants to be Dad so he locates her and after failing at pretending to be her Dad, helps her escape from the juvenile detention. But Claire who fails to appreciate that an angel is actually there to help her steals his wallet and runs away again to rejoin with Randy the nice man she has chosen to be her surrogate father who by the way is expecting Claire to collect money to help settle Randy's gambling debts. Claire who loves Randy because he the only Dad she knows, chooses to commit robbery with a gun to deliver the needed cash. The Winchesters and Castiel arrive in time to prevent the robbery, but Claire leaves them in disgust,and in the dust, declaring that Dustin (surrogate brother) and Randy are her real family and Sam, Dean and Cas are three men who killed her father. Later Randy is visited by the loan shark goons and Randy agrees to allow them to take Claire in payment of his debt. The Winchesters and Castiel step in AGAIN and save her. Despite the Winchesters and Castiel saving her, and the fact that Randy sold her, Claire makes it clear that she still doesn't trust them. She runs away AGAIN and conveniently meets a couple who after she whines about Dean for killing Randy her second dad, suggest that she kill Dean as the person responsible for her (Randy's ) father's death. Claire then plans the murder of Dean Winchester. Claire sets up Dean to walk into a trap but at the last second she tips him off and Dean although under the MOC manages not to kill them. Claire leaves AGAIN. Despite the fact she told Cas that her mother took off to find herself, Claire begins a search for her missing mother by using the items she had in her possession all along, postcards from mom- Amelia and her things, including her mom’s diary!!! Claire is able to track her mother to Oklahoma. Claire ends up in the hospital and despite blaming Cas for her Dad’s death she has listed Cas as her emergency contact conveniently located in her phone. Once again Cas calls Sam and Dean to help him deal with Claire. They all show up at the hospital where are lovely teenager is still pissed and leaves AGAIN by fleeing the hospital. Sam tracks her down and is waiting for her in her hotel room. Claire initially rebuffs Sam's efforts to help her, but she finally agrees after he offers to teach her how to hack her mother's credit card and he tells her the Winchester secret that they steal to maintain their hunter lifestyle. Claire likes the credit card scam idea and is intrigued by how easy it is. Claire and Dean are left behind, ironically because they think Claire will be safer and over concerns that the affect of the MOC is becoming WORSE!!! Things between Dean and Claire are awkward at first, so Dean takes Claire to play mini-golf which they bond over. After some great detective work, Dean realizes they have to go to Sam and Cas. Instead of leaving Claire behind , Dean instead gives Claire a gun, instructs her how to use it and takes her with him as backup! Arriving at the scene Claire is finally, tearfully, reunited with her mother. As Claire tries to help her weak mother out of the barn, the angel that had been feeding off of her arrives and tells Claire that Amelia is beyond saving. Amelia/ Mom sacrifices herself to save Claire, leaving poor Claire devastated. Sam, MOC Dean and Full throttle angel Castiel engage the angel who proves to be stronger than all of them put together! But Claire, brave sweet Claire, alone kills the angel with the angel’s very own sword before embracing her mother's body for the last time! Next day, Claire is now a reborn charming young teen. She is off to Jodi Mills until she is just ready to face the world on her own again. Claire forgives Castiel for his role in her father's death, hugging him goodbye and asking Dean to look after him. She safely keeps and sweetly tucks into her bag a stuffed animal Castiel got her for her 18th (now conveniently an adult) birthday. Before saying goodbye, Dean gives her a copy of Caddyshack and a lore book, having noticed that she kept the angel’s sword. Despite being a really helpful deadly tool, Dean allows her to keep it telling no one. Despite giving Claire lesson to shoot a gun, providing her with a hunter’s lore book and allowing her to keep a powerful angel killing sword, Dean sagely advises Claire against becoming a hunter, telling her how dangerous it is and that she got her revenge when she killed the angel. Dean tells her that hunters do not live long but it all ends on a happy note as Claire jokingly tells Dean he's pretty old!!!!! Oh and her real Mom and Dad are happily reunited together in heaven forever and so very proud of their incredible daughter!!!!!

Tune in fans, when next week Sam and Dean get a call from Claire and learn that she has been dun dun dun dunnnnnn HUNTING!!!! But.... SPOILERS - it all ends well because Sam and Dean leave the happy family with Tupperware filled with homemade food!
# eilf 2016-01-30 19:18
Thank you for this! I haven't seen these specific episodes (the only ones in the entire series) so I appreciate the rundown ... which makes me all the more sure I never ever want to see them!

I liked the Alex episode ok and there is a picture (that is impossible to find) of what looks like Claire acting out at the dinner table and Alex smiling quietly to herself that makes me wonder if Alex isn't the more interesting character. I also find it interesting that all the people so enthusiastic for the Wayward Daughters spin-off really mostly seem to be interested in Cas's 'daughter' or, for example, I think this picture would be a lot easier to find. :P
Barbara Maake
# Barbara Maake 2016-01-30 19:42
spnlit, your recap of it sounds even worse than the actual episodes and I didn't think such a thing was possible. :) What fresh hell is in store for us on Wednesday? On the bright side, it looks like Claire's hunting life does not get off to a smooth start, judging from the bruises. maybe she'll tuck her tail between her legs and head off to that convent!;)
# AlyCat22 2016-01-31 03:57
Until Claire realizes it's stained Tupperware and goes to help the Winchesters track down the offending party only to find out it was Cas, and ordinarily where hilarity might have ensued now due to the fact that he is Casifer - Armageddon Part Deux breaks out instead. Stay tuned!
# Jen 2016-01-31 05:49
Now I only have one more thing to say before we finish our stories on ways to be rid of Claire Novak We don't like the character so the writers will keep her !!!! We like they die :o:o:o:o:o:o
