Supernatural: Appointment In Samarra Preview & a Thanks for the Show's Fan-Voted TV Guide Cover
This Friday, December 10, the Winchester brothers have an "Appointment In Samarra", and we've got a preview of the episode along with a video of the "Supernatural" cast thanking the fans for voting the show onto the cover of TV Guide!
Yep, you read that right -- as announced on CBS' "The Early Show" today, the December 13 cover, featuring "Supernatural" co-stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, will be on newsstands December 9. Debra Birnbaum, editor in chief of TV Guide magazine, thought of the cover poll contest after attending Comic-Con last summer and seeing firsthand fan enthusiasm for certain "cult" shows that don't get huge ratings.
She said she wanted to let the readers and viewers choose their favorite program out of six pre-selected programs across the major broadcast networks that fit this "cult" criteria and have the prize be the cover. "Nielsen rates the top 20 shows, but there's a lot Nielsen can't capture. They're looking at ratings but not passion or dedication. We tried to pick shows that really reflected all of that. Things social media have brought forward, Twitter and Facebook giving fans a real voice to talk about what they love about their favorite shows."
Now let's take a look at what Episode 11 of "Supernatural" has in store for us, and be sure to pay close attention to the opening seconds of the teaser to see a very familiar face!
Episode 11 "Appointment in Samarra" Synopsis: (12/10/10 Air Date)
Dean (Jensen Ackles) seeks out Death (guest star Julian Richings) to help get Sam's (Jared Padalecki) soul back. Death tells Dean he will help Sam if Dean will agree to act as Death for 24 hours.
Meanwhile, Sam decides he doesn't want his soul back and asks Balthazar (guest star Sebastian Roché) for a protective spell to keep his soul out of his body. Balthazar tells Sam he needs the blood of his father for the spell to work, and since John Winchester is dead, Sam decides Bobby (Jim Beaver) is the next best thing.
Mike Rohl directed the episode written by Sera Gamble and Robert Singer.
