More SPN 801 "We Need To Talk About Kevin" Episodic Photos
"SAM AND DEAN ARE REUNITED AFTER A YEAR APART Â— Dean (Jensen Ackles) re-emerges from Purgatory, but he isn't alone. He heads straight for Sam (Jared Padalecki), but the reunion isn't exactly what he thought it would be. Sam drops everything to join his brother, but leaving the life he had grown to enjoy turns out to be harder than he imagined. Dean and Sam look for Kevin (guest star Osric Chau) who has managed to escape Crowley's (guest star Mark Sheppard) grasp, but things come to a head quickly when Kevin tells them what it is that Crowley wants."
In addition to the four Supernatural season 8 premiere photos posted here, there are six more below, showing not only Sam and Dean, but also Crowley and the new character of Benny. There's another shot of Sam and Dean in the Impala, and that's something that just never gets old. It's so good to see them back where they belong after the cars they used in season 7.
There are also a few photos showing Sam and Dean talkingÂ—about what to do next or their time apart?Â—and of Dean picking a lock. WhatÂ—or whoÂ—is inside? Is this going to be where they find Kevin? It seems likely since another photo shows Crowley standing outside it and he'll be looking for Kevin. When will Crowley catch up to them? He may have helped them out in ways in previous seasons, but it was always to get what he wanted and he could never be trusted (just look at what happened in the season 7 finale). Now that there may be a way to close the gates of hell forever, it's not like he's going to be jumping to help them out with that.
Finally, a photo gives a look at Benny, the vampire who helps Dean get out of purgatory. He's one to keep an eye on, and as the photo shows, it looks like he's going to be doing some watching of his own. Like he did when he returned from hell and didn't tell Sam what happened there right away, Dean's going to be keeping some of what happened and what he did in purgatory a secret, and Benny is going to be part of that.
