Preview for “Family Matters” (6.07)
In this episode, the Campbell family is back and teaming up in a hunt with the brothers. But that is just part of the story.
“Family Matters” pretty much picks up where last week’s show left off. After the ass-kicking Dean gave Sam, it seems that big brother doesn't waste any time in calling upon their friendly neighborhood angel to see if he knows what is wrong with Sam. And if Cass can’t get a handle on Sam’s problem, Sam is not high on Dean’s ‘I’m going to let you live’ list. (A cute description of Cass on Twitter this week called him ‘the angelic medical practitioner’.)
Sam owns up to making some pretty bad decisions lately, including the one where he just ‘forgot’ to tell his brother that he hasn’t slept for over a year. He confesses his total lack of feeling to Dean and admits he believes something is wrong with him. (One has to wonder what his first clue was.) He also did asked for help…..which he gets …Dean Winchester style.
Sam truly seems confused more than anything, but the whole situation shouldn't really strike him as odd. Exactly what did he think would happen? Dean would just say "oh, okay, that’s cool Mr. Sociopath; let's just get on with hunting"? Ah…how many ways can you say…Nope!
Cass is going to lay some painful mojo on Sam, the same mojo Sammy was very indifferent about when Cass performed it on Aaron a few episodes back…you know the ‘search around in someone’s chest while they scream their head off to check on their soul’ thing. Now, however, the shoe is on the other foot, and whether Sam still thinks this is a good thing or not, really isn’t an issue. Dean isn’t giving Sam any options.
As for what Cass discovers? …Sam’s soul is gone. And if that isn’t bad enough, Sam’s being ‘soulless’, makes him a ‘perfect animal’ for those at war. (Hummmm, I can only assume he’s talking about heaven’s civil war, and Raphael’s desire to re-start the apocalypse. YUCK!)
Sam’s lack of feelings doesn’t stop the brothers from hunting however, although Dean forewarns Sam he is on a very short leash. When Sam realizes Samuel has a lead on the alpha vampire, an ancient and savage monster named Richard, the brothers join the Campbell clan on a hunt. It’s then that Dean begins to suspects Samuel might be up to something more than just killing monsters. Dean doesn’t trust his grandfather or cousins, but Sam doesn’t feel the same way.
That changes, however as both brothers end up in confrontations with the Campbells. Eventually Dean and Sam have to decide to follow Samuel or kill him. Yea…trust and families just don’t go hand in hand in the Winchester world, huh.
Whatever happens on the hunt, things don’t go as planned, and between the alpha vamp and Samuel’s secret, the boys have their hands full. (So cool for us!)
Have to say here that either Cass heals Sam’s injuries, or a lot of time passes before the hunt, because Sam looks pretty darn good in the photos released for the episode. I especially like the long shot of him with the impala…would love to get him to autograph that one someday!
The official synopsis: DOES SAMUEL HAVE A SECRET? Dean becomes suspicious of Samuel’s motives, but Sam isn’t sold on the idea that their grandfather is doing anything wrong. The brothers go along on a hunt with Samuel and the other Campbells, but things go terribly awry. Written by CW Publicity

The preview clip and trailer videos for the episode are below.
And Canada’s Space channel released their trailer and preview clip today, and yea, the promo is very informative. If you haven’t seen them, both are below.
I really hope the MOTW part of the episode is fast paced and riveted with action, because from the brother’s relationship stand point, I suspect we will get a lot more questions than answers.
Happy viewing everyone! Come back and tell us what you think!
