SDCC Supernatural Season 8 spoilers masterpost
Jeremy Carver: Purgatory makes strange bedfellows. He won’t elaborate further.
Ben Edlund: In purgatory there’s a whole other storyline that is going to overlap with the present.
Jensen Ackles: Dean will get out with the help of someone in Purgatory but he’s not a good guy and won’t be going anywhere.
Returning character most thought long dead from first 3 seasons will be a Big Bad as 1st season plotline intersects with 8th.
A certain relationship the fans love to talk about will get its resolve on screen. Jeremy Carver: They will have to come to terms with their new relationships in their lives (the brothers).
Jeremy Carver: Sam and Dean build new relationships while apart as Dean’s in purgatory.
Jared Padalecki: We’re seeing flashblacks of Sam happy and having a normal relationship.
Season 8 theme: ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’.
Jeremy Carver: Suffice to say, a lot of seasons past, the boys have been reacting to things. This year for the first time, they are starting the season on offence. They really want something, it ties in deeply to the overarching mythology of the show. Something that is very near and dear to their hearts. They are very much united in going after this.
Mark Sheppard: Crowley is essentially what happens when people aren’t paying attention. The relationship the boys have had with Crowley has been a rather good one, it’s been fruitful. I gave ‘em stuff and then I got stuff. We’re in a situation this year where we’re kind of chasing after the same thing, which could be a problem.
Ben Edlund: It’s amazing how many times they’ve falling into a non-antagonistic relationship with the King of Hell, but next season will be more antagonistic — Crowley thinks ahead more than any other character in our universe. He’s going to be an issue, quite a titantic one, I don’t know.
Jared Padalecki: Sam is walking away from the hunting life because there is nothing left to fight for.
