To get ready for this week's episode, As Time Goes By, Supernatural's EP Robert Singer recently gave an interview about the Winchester family mythology and some background information about Henry Winchester. Source TVLine.
Bob also told us which characters will return soon. It is no surprise that we will see Castiel, Kevin and Benny again. Charlie is also returning later on in season eight. What about Garth? There is no mention of DJ Qualls' return. But I hope he will appear soon!! Check out the full interview here.
I am a huge fan of the Winchester family episodes -- Home, Something Wicked, What Is And What Should Never Be, A Very Supernatural Xmas, In the Beginning and The Song Remains the Same. A rewatch is imminent! It's been awhile since we have a Winchester family episode. I am super excited about Henry Winchester. The whole thing is just blowing my socks off!

Through Henry, Sam and Dean learn more about their father and the Winchester blood line. Serge Ladouceur directed the episode written by Adam Glass.
