spn genevieve 'Supernatural': Genevieve Cortese returns as Jared Padalecki's wife (literally)“Supernatural” fans, Ruby’s coming back from the dead… sort of.

Genevieve Cortese, the second actress to play the demon who nearly succeeded at luring Sam (Jared Padalecki) to the dark side, will be returning for a mind-bender of an episode later this season.

In the episode, Sam and Dean wake up in an alternate universe… where they’re actors named Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, starring on (wait for it…) a TV show called “Supernatural.” According to the newly launched TVLine.com, Cortese — Padalecki’s former co-star and real-life wife — will be returning to the show to play the alternate-universe version of, well, herself. (Yes, even fictional Jared is off the market, girls.)

The episode is set to air close to the Padaleckis’ late-February first wedding anniversary. Talk about demolishing that fourth wall! Will the fictional versions of Jensen and Jared be anything like their real-life counterparts?

FYI, don’t expect to see Ackles’ wife, “One Tree Hill’s” Danneel Harris, pop up in the episode. Zap2it visited Harris on the set of her new NBC comedy, “Friends With Benefits,” this fall, and she laughed off the possible suggestion of ever guest-starring on her new husband’s show.

“I don’t think that’d go over too well. I’m honestly so happy where I am right now,” she told us. “I love visiting their set, but it’s fun to just watch Jensen do his thing.”

Let us know your thoughts, “Supernatural” fans! How do you think Sam will react to waking up and discovering that he’s married to a woman who looks just like Ruby? Do you like the idea of breaking down the fourth wall? What other dead characters would you like to see return?
