'Supernatural' 'Torn and Frayed' preview: Heaven's 'most adorable angel' gets kidnapped
"In this episode we find Crowley going on offense," says showrunner Jeremy Carver. "When he and his minions are basically working over a captured angel, hoping to find what makes an angel tick by basically dialing into this guy's hard-wiring."
The angel in question -- who Dean sarcastically refers to as "Heaven's most adorable" -- is Samandiriel, the angel from "What's Up Tiger Mommy?"
Samandiriel is one of a few allies that Castiel still has in Heaven, so it makes sense that he'd want to stage a rescue mission. Unfortunately, Sam and Dean aren't even close to seeing eye-to-eye after Dean's allegiance to Benny took a deadly turn in the last episode.
"What's so powerful about Episode 10 is that the boys are really, really faced with deciding once and for all what's most important going forward, and where they stand in each others' lives," Carver teases.
Color us intrigued. Tune in tomorrow, Wednesday January 16, at 9 p.m. EST on The CW.
