Today we have your first look at next week’s brand new episode of Supernatural, which is titled “Beyond The Mat.” It looks as though this will be a pretty solid episode that will continue the momentum from last night’s offering, “The Vessel,” which surprised even this honorary Man of Letters with its sheer awesomeness.
Although the show has made a pro wrestling reference or two in the past, it will be interesting to see Sam and Dean attend a show. Obviously there is a mystery to be solved though, as wrestlers start turning up dead. Be sure to keep an eye out for WWE Superstar Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, who is certainly no stranger to film these days.
What really caught my attention in the new trailer, however, was Castiel/Lucifer laying the smack down on Crowley. If you hadn’t noticed, Crowley is back in his formal attire, so I’m curious to see why he isn’t a house pet as seen in last night’s episode. Now that Lucifer let the Winchesters in on his secret, it should make for some insane dynamics going forward.
For more information, check out the official synopsis below:
Dean (Jensen Ackles) sees an obituary notice for a wrestler he and Sam (Jared Padalecki) used to watch when they were kids. Deciding they need a break from tracking the Darkness, the brothers decide to attend the funeral to pay their respects. The funeral is full of wrestlers, including Shawn Harley (guest star Mike “The Miz” Mizanin), a hot shot new wrestler with a fiery temper who pushes everyone’s buttons, and veteran wrestler Gunner Lawless (guest star Aleks Paunovic). Sam and Dean attend the next match to re-live one of their fondest childhood memories but when another wrestler turns up dead, play time quickly turns to work. Jerry Wanek directed the episode written by John Bring & Andrew Dabb (#1115). Original airdate 2/24/16.
Supernatural airs Wednesday nights at 9:00 pm EST on The CW.
