“Supernatural” Season 15 “Raising Hell”: So Hell Hath a Helluva’ Lot More Fury for Sam, Dean & Castiel [PREVIEW]

The CW‘s Supernatural kicked off its fifteenth and final season with a suspenseful premiere, perfectly setting the stage for a nostalgic farewell. “Back and to the Future” resurrects the Winchesters’ (Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles) former foes and excites fans with the return of familiar faces we’ve longed to see again. Some of those appearances will happen sooner than later.

“Supernatural” season 15, episode 2 “Raising Hell”: SENDING OUT AN SOS – Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins) call on Rowena (Guest Star Ruth Connell) to help keep the evil souls at bay and get an unexpected assist from Ketch (Guest Star David Haydn-Jones). Robert Singer directed the episode written by Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming

Images from “Raising Hell” reveal that Kevin Tran (Osric Chau) is back from the dead-ish! But which incarnation of Kevin is this – evil Kevin from the Alternate Universe or the original Kevin we love? Even the boys look confused…

I dig the iron chains Sam and Dean are wearing as protection from the ghosts. As we know, the anti-possession tattoos can only do so much. I’m also relieved Rowena (Ruth Connell ) has their back. Her character took a pleasant turn after Crowley (Mark Sheppard) sacrificed himself for the boys. I really hope he turns up this season!
