It’s been a long time coming — 12 seasons, actually — but in Thursday’s (Nov. 10) episode of “Supernatural,” Sam and Dean are going to face off against… Adolf Hitler!? The episode, titled “The One You’ve Been Waiting For,” finds the Winchesters facing off against their old foe the Thule, one more time. The last time they did battle with the Nazis, a Golem was their biggest threat. This time, however, it looks like the group is preparing to resurrect humanity’s biggest enemy.
Screener had a chance to sit down with Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins during a recent set visit trip to Vancouver and they were able to give us a little insight into the anticipated episode.
So, you’re battling Nazis in the next episode — what can you tell us?
Misha Collins: I think it’s very brave of the show and the network to stake out such a controversial position. It’s very much anti-Nazi.
Jensen Ackles: [Laughs] Very brave.
Indeed… The episode description talks about Hitler’s soul possibly being around. Can you elaborate?
Jared Padalecki: Yeah, so we find out that the Thule are back, and we believe they may have been in control, or in possession of, a cursed object of sorts that might have a bit of Hitler’s soul. And they’re trying to do a “Jurassic Park” and take the amber out of the tree sap and the mosquito DNA or whatever. So obviously we don’t know how it’s going and so we have to kind of go back and track the Thule and figure out if, in fact, they have succeeded. Though Hitler’s vessel, thankfully, is gone, but…
We saw a preview and it looks quite intriguing.
JP: Got it. Yes. It’s fun to see “Supernatural” take on what Hitler was really like behind the camera. I’m clearly prepared because I’m just digging.
MC: Do they know that Sam dies?
Stop the presses!
JP: Do they know Hitler possesses Sam? I’m just kidding. Or am I?
“Supernatural” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
