Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jake Abel

The CW

Looks like Supernatural fangirls are going to have one more J to drool over. (And pssst, this one's barely legal.)

The CW confirms that Jake Abel (Threshold) has been cast as a third Winchester brother, joining Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles on the cult hit series. He'll play 18-year-old Adam Milligan and make his first appearance April 23.

Sources tell me exclusively that Jake will only appear in one episode and is not expected to be seen again. (The why of which is too spoilery to tell, but suffice it to say, the episode will be full of surprises.)

So how exactly will this new bro come into the mix? And what does Grey's Anatomy's Denny (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) have to do with it?

As first reported by TV Guide, Adam is the result of an affair that Sam and Dean's father John (aka Denny, aka Morgan) had while one on of his demon hunts. He knew about the boy's existence, but never told Sam and Dean. But soon, the cat will be out of the bag.

When we first reported the news last month that a third bro would be introduced on Supernatural, you fans were, um, skeptical, to say the least.

What say you now? Is this a good thing for the show?
