Bob Singer talks about Bobby and Castiel's return to Zap2it at the TCA event. 

Zap2it posted an article confirming that Bobby will be back in some form or another this season. 

 

"Jim will be back, in one form or another, this season," Singer says. "That's probably as much as I'm going to say. The killing of Bobby was part of an overall idea this year of isolating the boys. It started with losing Castiel, then we went into a real, constant bonding with Bobby. We really built their relationship with Bobby this season, and then we ripped that away from them. We put them in a place they've really never been before, where they have no life supports, no lifelines, and no backups. They're facing this huge monolithic evil, but they're reduced to two lonely cowboys."

 

They also reported more information on Castiel’s three-part arc.

 

“When they run across Castiel, it's a very different kind of Castiel. Dean has a bit of a moral dilemma in regard to Castiel in that first episode," he reveals. "Dean does some soul searching."

 

Singer promises a more satisfying conclusion this time. "It will feel like some sort of closure, yes," he says. "Not in the first episode back, of course, but by the third, absolutely."

 

Speaking of closure, Singer tells us that there is a cliffhanger ending planned for this season, whether or not The CW gives the show an early pickup for Season 8. "We like to be optimistic about the pickup," he says, "So we're going to write another cliffhanger ending, I think, and then just see what happens."
