Supernatural season 15 episode 16 is coming next week on The CW, with the title "Drag Me Away (From You)." This is an interesting episode as the story dives back into the past of brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles).
Supernatural season 15 episode 16 will look back at Sam and Dean's younger years. It will feature a flashback during their early days, particularly when they were working on a certain case. Everything that's going to happen here is seemingly tied to their childhood.
According to the synopsis, Sam and Dean were asked to investigate the murder of a childhood friend. They were called back to a motel from their past. However, the most perplexing part here is that the Winchester brothers thought the case was solved a long time ago.
Within this episode, we're going to see the younger versions of Sam and Dean. The two started in the show as adults but we don't really get many stories about their childhood years. Now, the upcoming story may feel a little bit nostalgic and it could show how they live their life before.
CarterMatt noted that Supernatural season 15 episode 16 could be standalone in nature. However, since we're nearing the ending of the series, there could be unexpected twists and turns here. The story in the past might have a significant impact on the present and future.
Perhaps, there is a reason why Sam and Dean were forced to revisit a case they thought was already solved. In addition, we're going to see some of the things they've been through during their childhood years. And while exploring the past, some secrets might be uncovered, as well.
Meanwhile, this episode was originally meant to air earlier this year. The series was set to conclude back in May, wrapping up season 15. But then, the schedule wasn't followed as the show halted its production due to the current global health crisis.
In February, TVLine reported that the episode sees a 9-year-old Sam and a 13-year-old Dean. At the time, it was revealed that the series is looking for Padalecki and Ackles' adolescent counterparts, who will embark on their very first hunt together.
Supernatural season 15 episode 16 will air on Thursday, Oct. 22, on The CW. The episode is directed by Amyn Kaderali written by Meghan Fitzmartin.
