sweetondean's Light on Spoilers, Heavy on Squee Preview of Supernatural 13x02 "The Rising Son"

Welcome to the second preview of season 13!

Yes, we got through the first episode of season 13...we probably cried...but we MADE IT! Unlike Cas, Crowley and Rowena. Too soon?

Okay...where did the premiere episode leave us?


The devil's kid is a streaker.
The angels want him.
God's not listening.
Dean's sad.
Sam's optimistic.
That sheriff is never going to sleep again.
Hash browns are basically fries.


Parenting Satan's Child: How to Raise the Devil's Spawn and Survive.

Yes...Jack Morningstar has moved into the bunker with Sam and Dean... who are now insta-parents...sorta.

Let's check out the synopsis...

The Rising Son

WHAT EVIL THIS WAY COMES… — Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) begin to explore what Jack (Alexander Calvert) is capable of doing with his powers. An unexpected visit from Donatello (guest star Keith Szarbajka) alerts the boys to the fact that Jack will need more protection than the Winchesters can provide. There is a new Prince of Hell in town, Asmodeus (guest star Jeffrey Vincent Parise), and with Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) out of the picture, he sets his sights set on Jack. The episode was directed by Thomas J. Wright and written by Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner (#1302).

Wow. A lot is going to happen in this episode! We have the Jack story, we have the Apocalypse world story, and we have the new Prince of Hell story. Crikey! It looks like it's full steam ahead into all the arcs of the first part of the season!

And everyone is after Jack. I wonder how long he will stay with the brothers before he moves on, or out, or gets nabbed.

Let's check out the promo...

So Jack gets inked up with some protection symbols - interesting. I wonder if Sam got reinked, is this when we see him get reinked?

(Tattoos are very much on my mind today...because Jensen got a freakin' tattoo and I lost my mind...but I digress...)

I'm interested to find out how the prophet Donatello recovered from Amara sucking out his soul - I'm guessing maybe Amara released the souls? I read somewhere that this question is answered in this episode, so yay!

It's also going to interesting to hear Donatello's take on Jack and what advise he gives to the brothers. I figure Dean will be in a he's evil frame of mind until such a time as Jack proves he's not...if he indeed does do that. But so far I like how the brothers are dealing with their disagreement, for want of a better word. So far I like it a lot. It's like they said at Comic Con, they don't agree, but they work through it from different places. ❤

We get to meet the last Prince of he going to be pissed that the Winchesters are responsible for the death of all 3 of his siblings, or will he not care? Will he end up getting his mitts on Jack? Will he be after revenge. How will he change up hell?

And we visit the Apocalypse world - though that isn't in the promo.... these are promo pics for 13x02... plus one other which is a spoiler if you don't know, so I'm not including it!

I love the pointed headed demons.

Entertainment Weekly is continuing the Supernatural love fest, and an article today discussed Dean's mood...

Dean is going to be throwing himself into the job now more than ever. “He’s essentially grieving by burying himself in work,” Jensen Ackles says. But don’t expect him to be enthusiastic about it. “He’s still going to fight the fight, but there’s less passion there because of the loss that he’s dealing with,” Ackles continues.

While Sam continues to look for ways to potentially save mom or maybe get Castiel back, Dean is focusing on the task at hand. His attitude, as Ackles puts it, is, “I’m not going to think about what I’ve lost. In turn, I’m just going to focus on what I can fix.” That leads Dean down what Ackles calls a “hopeless road.”

However, don’t expect the show to get too caught up in the darkness of it all. “The boys certainly aren’t mopey,” Padalecki says. Ackles adds, “That’s not interesting to me. What’s more interesting is the person who looks like everything’s fine when you are fully aware that everything is not fine.” And, considering this is Supernatural, fans can always expect humor to find its way into just about any situation. “One of my favorite things about the series is that it can bring levity to situations,” Ackles says. “And I think that’s one of the reasons why this season we’re not going full-mope.” Padalecki chimes in, “Never go full-mope.”

No full-mope sounds good! I'm standing by for a sneak peek clip...and when it will be...



Oh my gosh the copying Dean, and Sam's face when he realises what's happening! That's pretty adorable. I love it. I love when Dean starts to notice it - the eye rolls! Dean will end up liking him against his better judgement - you can see it, he won't be able to help it, Jack is essentially a kid, and Dean is essentially a softey.

I'm going to admit I never considered the fact that Jack is God's grandson. That's interesting. Could be interesting later? Would love it to be interesting later! 

Look how pissed Dean is at God again...wounded again, fed-up again that he and Sam have been deserted and left to deal with all this biblical shit alone. Sigh. 

Here is some crew info on the ep from Mary on the post production crew...

Okie dokie! Enjoy the episode, everyone! How good is it to have our show back!
