Supernatural (Tuesday nights, 9pm, CW)
By Paula R. Stiles

No new episode this week, but there are repeats of “There’s No Place Like Home” and “About a Boy” on Tuesday and Thursday. The promo for 10.15 (“The Things They Carried,” when Cole returns) is up. The official synopsis is also up:

COLE PAYS A VISIT TO THE WINCHESTERS – Despite Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) directive to forget about looking for a cure for the Mark of Cain, Sam (Jared Padalecki) continues to do research. Dean suspects Sam is hiding something, but decides to focus on a new murder case where they run into Cole (guest star Travis Aaron Wade). The three team up, and learn a Khan worm is infecting men and turning them into murderers. Unfortunately, the worm makes its way into Cole. John Badham directed this episode written by Jenny Klein (#1015). Original airdate 3/18/2015.

New episodes return on March 18 when the show moves to Wednesdays for the rest of the season to accommodate new show iZombie.

Episode titles have been reported through the season finale: “The Things They Carried” (10.15), “Paint It Black” (10.16), “Inside Man” (10.17), “Book of the Damned” (10.18), “The Werther Project” (10.19), “Angel Heart” (10.20), “Dark Dynasty” (10.21), “The Prisoner” (10.22), and “My Brother’s Keeper” (10.23). Some of these sound quite ominous.

Robert Berens is writing 10.19 and the episode will be directed by Stefan Pleszczynski.

Finally, the unheralded repeat of “The Hunter Games” got a 0.2/1 in demo and 0.62 million in audience.
