Supernatural season 8 began with someone new in each brother's lifeÂ—Benny in Dean's, Amelia in Sam'sÂ—and the fifth episode, "Blood Brother," will show each, as seen in the photos the CW has released.
SPN Season 8 Episode 5 "Blood Brother" Photos
"BENNY CALLS DEAN FOR HELP Â— After Benny (Ty Olsson) gets brutally beat up by some vampires, he calls Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help. Dean abruptly packs up and tells a confused Sam (Jared Padalecki) that he's taking a 'personal day.' Benny confesses that he's going after his Maker (guest star Patrick Stafford) so Dean offers to help, flashing back on the many times Benny helped him and Castiel (Misha Collins) in Purgatory. Meanwhile, Sam (Jared Padalecki) uses his solo time to reflect on the life he left behind with Amelia (guest star Liane Balaban). However, when things go bad for Dean and Benny, Dean calls Sam for help, which makes everything very complicated."
Yes, Sam and Benny will be coming face to face in this episode, as shown in some of the photos out, but before that happens, it's going to be Dean and Benny after the vampire calls needing helpÂ—and as you can see with one of the photos, he certainly needs it. It looks like it's a good thing he has Dean on his side. From there, Sam will enter the picture, and seeing what happens when he meets the vampire Dean brought out of purgatory with him is definitely something to look forward to. There's no way Sam's going to be on board with this new partnership right away, given their history with working with demons and trusting monsters, so what will this mean for the brothers' relationship? Will they put aside their differences since the goal is going after Benny's maker?
Also coming up in this Supernatural season 8 episode is some more stuff between Sam and Amelia, and it should be interesting to watch the differences between the two storylines. While Dean was fighting for his life in purgatory and now will be helping Benny with a dangerous situation, Sam was living the normal life for a year and will be reflecting back on that, which means more of Liane Balaban as Amelia and the dog. What does Amelia know about Sam's life? Does she know he has a brother? Will Sam make a decision about his future in "Blood Brother"?
