When D.J. Qualls returned to “Supernatural” in the most recent episode, we thought we were in for a barrel of laughs — but the mood took a major turn with Jim Beaver‘s not-so-triumphant return as Bobby, or at least, as Bobby’s ghost.
In this Friday’s new episode, Beaver will once again make an appearance as Bobby struggles to make contact with the Winchesters, who are investigating what they believe to be a good old-fashioned haunted house. In this new clip from the episode, Sam and Dean sift through their research while Bobby does his best to be noticed.
Unfortunately, Sam and Dean are a little too preoccupied to pause for fluttering curtains.
The clip makes Bobby’s direct connection to his flask very clear. Let’s just say it’s a good thing that Dean is a semi-functioning alcoholic, because the boys are going to need Bobby in this episode — and Bobby needs to stick close to that flask.
Do you think there’s any chance of Bobby coming back to life? Chime in below in the comments section, and be sure to tune in to The CW on Friday, April 20 at 9 p.m. EST.
