Superhero aficionados have a lot to look forward to on The CW during the week of January 18th… fans of the network’s horror fare, on the other hand, not so much. “Supernatural” is the only horror show airing that week as “iZombie,” which returns on the 12th, is being preempted for two 30-minute specials about upcoming theatrical and televised DC projects (more about those below).
As for “Supernatural,” the show’s midseason return picks right up where we left off with guest star Mark Pellegrino’s Lucifer making Sam an offer… will it be one he can’t refuse?
“Supernatural” Episode 11.10 – “The Devil in the Details” (1/20/16; 9:00-10:00 pm)
LUCIFER MAKES SAM AN OFFER — Now that he has Sam (Jared Padalecki) in the cage with him, Lucifer (guest star Mark Pellegrino) offers Sam a way out, but it comes with a steep price. Meanwhile, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins) look into the angel smiting that could have killed Amara (guest star Emily Swallow). Thomas J. Wright directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb.
