'Supernatural': 'Buffy's' Amber Benson returns for episode 619
Benson is currently on location in Vancouver for the episode, which is scheduled to air on April 29. She has filmed scenes with Jim Beaver (Bobby). " "
Benson played "good" vampire Lenore in Season 2's "Bloodlust," where we first met one of our favorite villains, Gordon. Lenore was the head of a group of vampires who were attempting to live peacefully among humans. They fed on cattle blood and tried to blend in to keep hunters like Gordon and the Winchesters off their backs.
Lenore proved that she could resist the temptation of human blood when Gordon tempted her by slicing Sam's arm open. Though Dean initially hesitated to set her free, Sam convinced him to let her and the rest of the non-murderous vamps go.
We're speculating, based on the episode title, that her return is connected to the Mother of All, who, like any over-involved mom, has been driving monsters extra-crazy for the last year and a half. Can Lenore keep her urges under control even with the Mother of All whispering creepy recruitment plans in her ears?
What do you think of Lenore's return, "Supernatural" fans? We always love a good callback.
