Oh, sorry. You wanted to hear about the plot?
The CW has just released photos from the episode titled “Girl Next Door,” which Ackles directed. In the episode, Sam (Jared Padalecki) follows a dangerous lead on a case with a creepy similarity to a case Sam solved as a kid. Yes — Colin Ford will return as young Sam. Jewel Staite guest stars as a high school sweetheart of Sam’s who comes back into his life at a rather inopportune moment.
The problem is, she’s not exactly his “sweetheart” so much as she’s a demon who eats brains. Fun times, right?
Not so much. By the looks of the pics, Sam and Dean have a pretty rough go of it on this case. Dean’s entire leg is in a cast and he’s limping around on crutches, while Sam appears to be completely unconscious. It looks like Sam’s so out of it that Bobby (Jim Beaver) has to steal him from the hospital! Hopefully she hasn’t chowed down on his brain. He’s got enough going on in his head right now.
We can’t help but wonder how much fun Ackles had getting in and out of that cast while trying to wrangle the entire cast and crew at the same time.
