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

This week, the show returns with “Book of the Damned” (10.18). So far, we’ve got a promo, an extended promo, the official synopsis, promotional photos, and a sneak peek. So far, at least, they’re not pushing Charlie’s reappearance the way they usually do, though she is in the CW Countdown lineup for the show’s return from its brief hiatus.

The synopsis for 10.20 (“Angel Heart”) is out:

#Supernatural 10.20 synopsis “Angel Heart” (April 29)

CLAIRE NOVAK RETURNS – When Claire Novak (guest star Kathryn Love Newton) gets a lead on her mother, Amelia (guest star Leisha Hailey), who has been missing for years, Castiel (Misha Collins) asks Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) to help her. Castiel feels guilty for what he did to the Novak family and wants to make amends by reuniting Claire with her mom. However, when they find out what took Amelia, they realize there is a chance Claire may not get her happy ending. Steve Boyum directed this episode written by Robbie Thompson (#1020).

Behind-the-scenes photos are coming out for the end of the season, including a shot of Julian Richings. Yep. Death is coming back.

Speaking of returning characters, the official photos for 10.19 are up and Benny is coming back. Also, Dean goes to Purgatory and Sam works with Rowena.

Eric Kripke is working on a new series, based on a comic book.

10.21 will be the last-filmed episode of the season.

The repeat of “The Executioner’s Song” did okay with a 0.3/1 in demo and 0.85 million in audience.

Also, the Live+7 ratings for 10.16 (“The Things They Carried”) rose from a 0.6 to a 1.2.

We’ll be back next week with more news, spoilers and blatantly unabashed self-promotion. Stay tuned and check out our reviews of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Event, Once Upon a Time, Grimm and Supernatural.
