In past seasons of “Supernatural,” we learned a lot about the Campbells, Sam and Dean’s mother’s family, and now it’s time to find out about the Winchester side. In the upcoming Episode 12, entitled “As Time Goes By,” Gil McKinney guest stars in a pivotal role that involves time travel.
HuffPo was on-set during the filming of the episode and learned that McKinney (“Friday Night Lights,” “ER”) portrays a man called Henry who is transported to the present day, but this isn’t a simple “monster of the week” case for the brothers as the time traveler is actually Sam and Dean’s paternal grandfather.
“This is a [man] we knew nothing about because he was never involved in our lives or the lives of people that were involved directly with us,” Jensen Ackles (Dean) said. “It’s kind of getting some insight into the life and the legacy of the Winchesters, which is something that we as characters never really knew.”
His co-star Jared Padalecki (Sam) agreed, adding, “We found out about the Campbells. We knew their mom, kind of knew her business, and so it’s interesting to see from a Winchester perspective what happened and learn a little bit more about our father.”
The episode is scheduled to air in late January.
