Supernatural fans, start preparing yourselves to meet the evil version of your favorite brothers. Yes, Sam and Dean will soon have to take on...evil Sam and Dean! And executive producer Sera Gamble tells us it might get a little "psychological." Color us intrigued!
So what else did Sera have to say about the upcoming episode, which we're extremely excited for? And when will we meet the Leviathan boss?
In the aptly titled "Slash Fiction," our boys once again find themselves on the FBI's most-wanted list when two Leviathans clone them (who can blame them really?) and go on a killing spree. Naturally, evil goodness ensues.
"It's kind of Sam and Dean vs. Sam and Dean, where we have evil Sam and Dean running around—that's pretty great," Sera teases. "Jared and Jensen clearly had a ton of fun playing the evil sides of themselves. Evil Sam and Dean kind of have a psychological take on why Sam and Dean act the way they do. It's pretty funny."
Besides wanting to look like the Winchester brothers, what exactly do the Leviathans want?
"They are very smart, they are very adaptable, and basically they find themselves in the land of opportunity," Sera says about the new arrivals from Purgatory. "They develop the plan that works best for them, and you start to see that kind of evolve over the first half of the season. We'll get more of a taste of what their boss is telling them and why."
Despite their trail of carnage, Sera insists the Leviathans are "not violent, angry, slash-and-burn creatures...they're just instinctually corrupt monsters—they're starving and they really like eating people." OK, then.
Sera says fans will "really dig" the Leviathan boss and will first meet him in episode six. We're already counting down the days.
Before they have to deal with the big boss though, Dean and Sam must deal with a few setbacks, including the death of Castiel (Misha Collins) and Sam's current condition, both of which are going to have a huge impact on Dean, Sera says. Basically, prepare for lots o' brooding.
"This is a pretty core-level shakeup for Dean...He's not exactly sure what category to put his brother in, considering the whole wave-a-gun-in-your face thing," Sera explains of Dean's current mindset. "He so firmly had Cas in the ally category and he was so wrong. When something like that happens in your life, it causes you to doubt your instincts and you certainly have something to prove to yourself again. I think that is something that Dean is really battling with."
As for the multiple cliffhangers fans were left with at the end of episode two, Sera says, "I like to end each episode of the show that I watch really worried about how they're going to get back up again." And as any loyal Supernatural viewer knows, our boys always get back up again.
Supernatural airs tonight at 9 p.m. on the CW.
Do you believe Dean was wrong in considering Castiel an ally? What do you think those Leviathans are up to? Sound off in the comments!
