Sam and Dean Winchester will reportedly be patching up the seasons-long tension between them when "Supernatural" season 11 premieres this October.
"What I like about where we're going is the brothers are united," Jensen Ackles, who plays older brother Dean, told the audience at Hall H during Comic Con last week. "We're back to normal, so to speak, and we have a common target. I'm excited to get back to that original format."
The long-awaited unity won't be much of a happy event, however, since one of the boys' friends will be having a hard time this season... again.
Remember that time Castiel turned into a bad angel? He'll be going through that again. But this time, he'll be under a curse set by Crowley's mother, Rowena.
During last season's finale, viewers were left with Castiel in the attack dog spell that devious Rowena cast on him. When "Supernatural" season 11 rolls around later this year, he would still be under that spell. Seeing as he's immortal, he would have to endure that situation far longer than a human would.
"[Castiel] is going to have turned dark. He is going to be suffering from the effects of that attack dog spell," Misha Collins, who plays the eandering angel, expounded to Zap2It. "So he's going to have blood-shot eyes and be kind of rabid and that's going to be something he's dealing with for quite some time."
This means he won't be much help as an angel for the Winchesters while they're being swallowed up the darkness. Thankfully, Jared Padalecki, who plays Sam, revealed that although we last saw them being gobbled up by a cloud of black smoke, they will come out alive.
"The boys are in the car, so they are a little protected from the darkness and the smoke," Padalecki revealed. "We find out that something happened to them that we were obviously not expecting so they get torn apart a little bit and then brought back together."
Previous reports also suggest that the boys may have to work with both demons and angels to find what the Darkness really is.
"Supernatural" season 11 will return to the CW on Oct. 7.
