With the first episode of season seven set to air next Friday Sept 23rd, how many fans are really excited for this new year.  Given the highly energized season finally, Dean and Sam do seem to be headed for a disastrous time with the newly formed Godstiel and the bevy of new monsters set to grace our screen each week.

Fortunately to soothe some of the anxious wait, the CW has released 11 photos from the highly anticipated premier and a lengthy promo, with more to come for sure. To start, we can also look forward to the familiar sounds of AC/DC's anthem of “You Shook Me All Night Long” on our television screens accompanied by a lengthy recapping of last season, as this season picks up EXACTLY where last years left off.


And from the looks of all the spoilers so far released, while Castiel may have anointed himself as the new God, Dean and Sam are hell-bent to make sure that Castiel's promotion comes to a quick end. Speaking of hell, we can also count on the King of Hell making numerous appearances this season, such to the delight of all Crowley/ Mark Sheppard fans.  We already know that Cas has plans for the big dude, but so does Dean and Sam… and Crowley finds it a lot more comfy with the boys this season than Cas.  Seems he has plans to help the boys any way he can, if for no other reason than to keep Cas from finding him and ending their last season's "deal" on a more permanent basis.

 

Dean and Sam will have a tough time with their new goal however, as Cas , in his infinite desire to save everyone, has released unimaginable evil on the planet by opening the door to purgatory, and from the looks of the photos, all that power he has ingested is taking its toll on his vessel.  Jimmy seems to be going the way of Lucifer, and what will happen when Jimmy can no longer hold all that power?    We can take comfort in the fact that many new characters will spring up to help the boys and Bobby.

With the possibility of Cas going Chernobyl, Dean attempts to get the assistance of Death, who at one time declared, he could "reap God himself.' After casting a spell that does indeed cause Death to appear, he discovers that Cas has been one step ahead of the boys the whole time.  Death is not interested in helping the boys and Bobby and now they not only have to deal with a supped up Cas, but an angry horseman as well.  That's not exactly the position Dean and Sam want to be in...EVER.  That should give you reason to see how the writers are posed to send us a bevy of intriguing plots to chew on each week.

However, Cas and Death are not the only causes of concern for Dean and Bobby. Sam memories from his time in hell keep surfacing causing black outs and hallucinations and all at the wrong time…and if that isn't enough for you, all of the familiar hunting traits and techniques the boys have used in the past are GONE this year.  Even the impala might have to go into storage for a while - just to recognizable for the Winchesters.  Now THAT will REALLY piss me off!  It had better be a VERY short storage.  

If that hasn't gotten you all in a tizzy about the upcoming season and, how about the fact that the story arcs this year can't be adequately told in the usually 22 episodes.  This season has been expanded to 23 episodes and what can we expect from that 23 show?  One has to wonder what and where season seven, and a possible season eight, will take us.  

How is the season to start? You can read the synopsis of  "Meet the New Boss" below:

Castiel doesn't kill Sam, Dean and Bobby, but warns them not to interfere in his business. Assuming his new role as God, Castiel sets out to right some of the wrongs in the world. Dean decides they should find Death and order him to stop Castiel, but the former angel is one step ahead of them, leaving Dean to face a very angry Death. Meanwhile, Sam struggles to deal with the broken wall in his mind.

So, whatever may come after Castiel gets kicked from his throne, and he will as the boys never fail, or when Sam finally deals with his memories of the pit, one can take comfort in knowing that it will most certainly be handled with the same drama and comedy that the series has been handled with so far.  

So I say BRING ON SEASON SEVEN!!!  I'm ready!
