'Supernatural' Season 6: Soullessness, the mother of all evil, and more
Unlike previous seasons, Season 6 has been somewhat divided into chapters. The first part of the season focused on capturing alpha monsters and getting Sam's soul back from hell. Now, in the second part of the season, Sam and Dean are focused on killing the Mother of All, Eve, who threatens to destroy the world with her ever-growing army of monsters. And then there are the angels.
"Season 6 has been a really fun, cool departure," Padalecki says. "The angels now have gotten fed up with Sam and Dean and how they keep throwing a wrench in the system, so now angels are after us."
Demons, alpha monsters, the Mother of All, angels... it's coming at the boys from all sides. "Now they've got so many more situations to be dealing with," Ackles says. "They've got to figure out how to deal with these crazy creatures and crazy monsters."
"All the shapeshifters and ghouls and zombies and ghosts and goblins that we've fought over the last five seasons, they all come from somewhere," Padalecki explains. "It's our job to seek out where they come from. We're going after the mother of all monsters."
"From here on forward it's kind of going to be a bit like old times," Ackles adds.
