Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles is more than a pretty face. He’s a skilled actor who can convey complex emotions, deliver dialogue with great humor, and scare the bejesus out of the viewer. Ackles’ portrayal of Dean Winchester on Supernatural has contributed to the program’s decade-long success.
Supernatural returns Wednesday, October 7 for Season 11. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) will be dealing with the consequences of unleashing the Darkness on the world. The good news is that they will be doing it together. Let’s see how long the Winchester brothers can go before they start keeping secrets from each other.
In Season 11 of Supernatural, Sam and Dean Winchester will face what may be the greatest foe of all time—the Darkness. Most of what we know about the Darkness came from Death before he was dispatched by Dean:
“Before there was light, before there was God and the archangels, there wasn’t nothing. There was the Darkness: a horribly destructive, amoral force that was beaten back by God and his archangels in a terrible war. God locked the Darkness away where it could do no harm, and he created a Mark that would serve as both lock and key, which he entrusted to his most valued Lieutenant, Lucifer. But the Mark began to assert its own will, revealed itself as a curse, and began to corrupt. Lucifer became jealous of Man. God banished Lucifer to Hell. Lucifer passed the Mark to Cain, who passed the Mark to you, the proverbial finger in the dike.”
In the CW’s new trailer Season 11 Supernatural, “Out of the Darkness,” Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) are dealing with the consequences of removing the Mark of Cain. Now that the boys have unleashed the Darkness, they will reap what they have sown. Guilt is Sam and Dean’s favorite emotion, and they’ll have plenty of opportunity for it.
