This Thursday night, Bobby (Jim Beaver) is going to bet his life against a game of high stakes poker in Supernatural: S05E07: “The Curious Case of Dean Winchester. Hoping to free himself from his wheelchair, Bobby bets twenty-five years against a witch and loses. Dean (Jensen Ackles) steps in to help as Bobby begins to age rapidly. Soon, the surly Winchester brother finds himself also turning into a grey haired old man. This leaves Sam (Jared Padalecki) holding the only hope for their survival. Will they all make it out alive in this harrowing quest for youth? Find out as the stakes get raised October 29th, at 9/8 central, only on the CW.
Keeping with Halloween traditions we caught up with Bobby himself, Mr. Jim Beaver, to talk about this exciting new episode as well as the rest of Supernatural: Season Five. Will this be Bobby’s last year? Will he ever get out of that damn wheelchair? Will we see an entirely new cast next season? Find out in our exclusive conversation:
It’s interesting that you guys went with a poker episode for Halloween. Can you talk about that decision and how the episode plays into the spirit of the Holiday?
Jim Beaver: I’m not too privy to how they make these decisions. Of course, we shot this episode back in September. I wasn’t even thinking about Halloween then. The fact is, this is Supernatural. Every episode is a Halloween episode. I don’t know if there was any particular conscious decision made to connect this episode to Halloween. I guess I’m not much help there.
