Fans were in an uproar when it was announced that angel-turned-human Castiel would be getting a love interest for “Supernatural” Season 9. As if viewers didn’t hate April Kelly (played by Shannon Lucio) enough already, these first look photos from her episode, “I’m No Angel,” will only add fuel to the fire.
The CW just released the photos from episode 3 airing Tuesday (Oct. 22), and Cas’ life as a human is about to get extremely complicated. He’s homeless, hunted by angels, and alone. “The last time we saw Castiel talking with Dean, Dean said, ‘Get your ass to the bunker.’ I think Castiel has taken that to heart, but the issue is he can’t fly, he has very little money, so how is he going to do this?” executive producer Jeremy Carver tells Zap2it. “Part of the struggle we see him dealing with when we pick up with him again in episode 3 is not a question of will Castiel reunite with the boys, it’s how will that happen?”
And April sure won’t make things easier for Cas, as it turns out that she’s not just some random love interest … she’s going to attack him. “The lightning bolt hits you when you might least expect it,” Carver teases. “Nothing quite turns out the way Cas ever expects seemingly on this show and I don’t expect that would be any different now.”
Read the full synopsis for “I’m No Angel” below:
“Ezekiel tells Dean a group of angels is hunting Castiel. Dean and Sam race to find their friend before the angels do. Meanwhile, a homeless Castiel is trying to make his way through the city and comes across some unexpected surprises.”
“Supernatural” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
