Airs: Wednesday, May 15 at 9/8c
With an episode title like “Sacrifice,” it’s clear that Sam and Dean’s mission to close the gates of Hell won’t exactly end with sunshine and rainbows. Besides dealing with Crowley and Naomi, the Winchester boys will also have to push themselves in directions they never imagined. “Things are starting to spiral out of control,” executive producer Jeremy Carver says. “They’re going to have to figure out, more than ever, how far they’re willing to go to get this revenge.” Meanwhile, Castiel will also resurface with Heaven’s best interests in mind. (Or are they Naomi’s interests?) Plus: Sam’s Season 1 love interest Sarah Blake (Taylor Cole) may not be the only familiar face returning.

‘SUPERNATURAL’: MEETING METATRON
Supernatural has introduced us to a number of mega-angels over the years but one of the most important introductions (at least in terms of this season) is still on the horizon.
In “The Great Escapist,” airing May 1, we’ll finally meet archangel Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), the angel rumored to be the scribe of God. The problem? “Metatron is a recluse and not by accident,” says executive producer Jeremy Carver. “So it’s going to be something of a chore to yank him from the life he has become accustomed. He’s not exactly a willing participant.”
Meanwhile, the exact nature of Sam’s mysterious trial-caused ailments will start to become a little clearer, but as a result, we’ll find ourselves asking “what kind of effect this has on him not just physically but emotionally,” says Carver. “The weaker Sam gets, the more Dean has to stand up, and I think both boys are going to have to grapple with some very, very big things that happen in these last four episodes.”
Bonus scoop: May 8′s episode entitled “Clip Show” is not going to be what Carver jokingly describes as “your typical, 1980s, trapped-in-an-elevator greatest moments.” So what IS the reason for the episode title? “I think part of the fun of the title is understanding just what the title means over the course of watching the episode. So I’ll leave it at that,” he says. So are we in store for a lighter, fun episode? “I don’t know. Call me afterwards,” he says with a laugh. “I don’t think you’re going to say it was fun. I would say it’s pretty earth-shaking in a way. [It’s] fun in an edge-of-your-seat way.”
