'Supernatural': 5 Spoilers You Need To Know

January 14th, 2013 4:04pm EST

Supernatural In entertainment, six weeks can be a lifetime. The CW’s “Supernatural” is finally returning after a lengthy hiatus on Jan. 16. In the last episode of 2012, Sam and Dean’s bromance seemed irrevocably broken after an epic argument over Dean’s Purgatory-forged friendship with vampire Benny and Sam’s lost love, Amelia. Let’s hope time heals all wounds. Here are the five spoilers you need to know…

A fan favorite returns. “The Girl With The Dungeons And Dragons Tattoo” was one of season 7’s instant classics, and featured geek goddess Felicia Day. Charlie Bradbury, the Harry Potter lovin’ hacker, will return in the Jan. 26 episode, reports. After she helped the Winchesters receive vital information on Big Bag Dick Roman, Charlie was forced to start a new life. Showrunner Jeremy Carver explained, “We will discover that young Charlie Bradbury, in running from her past life, has found herself a new life in a new community. Basically, [she] has fallen into the welcoming arms of a community of LARPers.” Cosplay sounds geeky enough, right?

“Supernatural” goes country. reports that Sam and Dean will get their “yee-ha!” on when a hunt takes them to an Idaho ranch and in the presence of an edgy cowgirl named Ellie. You had me at Dean in chaps.

More “Supernatural” on the way. “Supernatural” just nabbed its second consecutive“Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show” award at the People’s Choice Awards last week. Does that mean that season 9 is a lock? The CW’s President Mark Pedowitz is optimistic, according to "We are pleased with how Wednesday night has turned out, with “Arrow” being a bonafide hit and “Supernatural” actually gaining viewers again," he said. "I think creatively the show is in a great place." The CW usually announces official renews in late spring, but tossing some rock salt over your shoulder a few times couldn’t hurt.

Winchesters, Interrupted? The newest episode of “Supernatural” finds Castiel on a quest to save an angel that Crowley is holding captive. A preview of “Torn And Frayed" shows Dean on the hunt with Cas in tow…and no Sam in sight. The clip, featured below, poses more questions than it answers: Was Sam missing because he was too big to fit into the Garth’s safe house-boat? What's wrong with prophet Kevin? All will be answered on Jan. 16 on The CW at 9 pm EST.
