This week is “Dark Dynasty” (10.21). So far, we’ve got a promo, an extended promo, the official synopsis, and promotional photos.

We also had a last-minute sneak peek and producer’s preview last week for 10.20.

The synopsis for the season finale is up:

“Brother’s Keeper” – (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)

SUPERNATURAL SEASON FINALE – Dean (Jensen Ackles) makes a shocking decision regarding the Mark of Cain that would change not only his life, but Sam’s (Jared Padaleck) too. Meanwhile, Crowley (Mark Sheppard) and Rowena (guest star Ruth Connell) face off and Castiel (Misha Collins) gets caught in the middle. Phil Sgriccia directed this episode written by Jeremy Carver (#1022). Original airdate 5/20/2015.

Jensen Ackles gave an interview about the latter part of the season.

The Kings of Con still have a week left on their IndieGoGo campaign and have dragged some friends through the mud to help out.

The demo for “The Werther Project” remained steady at 0.7/2 in demo, and rose slightly to 1.74 million in audience.

In addition, we got a rare rundown on age demos for the network this season (thanks to Tikistitch on IMDB).

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.
