The upcoming episode will air on Tuesday, December 6. In the episode, both John and Mary find trails that lead back to their fathers. Given that Mary has been searching for her father throughout the first season, this development will be an interesting point in the series. As Carlos, played by JoJo Fleites, helps Mary investigate the whereabouts of Akrida, they discover much more than they bargained for. Meanwhile, Millie steps in to help Ada, John, and Latika to decipher notes left behind as they stumble upon a way to get some answers.

Jensen Ackles Narrates The Winchester’s Story

A major aspect of the show is Jensen Ackles’ return as Dean Winchester who narrates the story for viewers. He also serves as an executive producer on the series and has been very passionate about the project. Before the start of the shoot, he took both Rodger and Donnelly aside to remind them how much depends on their performance.

The 44-year-old quipped, “I’m like, listen, I didn’t work my a** off for 15 years to have you kids come in here and f*** it up. There’s a big population of people that are very protective of the story and of these characters, and you are the new stewards of this, and you need to understand the weight of that, and you need to understand how important it is to treat this with care and respect.”
