Supernatural season 8 premieres on October 3 with “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” and the CW has now released the official synopsis for episode 2, “What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?”
SPN Season 8 Episode 2 “What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?” Official Description
“MRS. TRAN JOINS SAM AND DEAN ON THE ROAD Â— Kevin (guest star Osric Chau) talks Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) into checking in on his mother (guest star Lauren Tom). When they arrive, they see that Crowley (guest star Mark Sheppard) has surrounded her with demons so they rescue her and take her along on their quest to find the tablet. However, they soon discover Kevin wasn’t kidding when he said his mother was a strong-willed woman after she tries to take on Crowley.“
As expected after the casting news came out that Lauren Tom would be playing a recurring character’s mother (it’s not like there are many recurring characters left alive on this show), she is going to be playing Kevin’s mother (the character was played by Khaira Ledeyo in season 7). The character has to be “a strong-willed” one to go after Crowley, but considering that he’s after her son and was the reason she had to be rescued, what else would you expect?
Supernatural season 8 is going to begin with Dean returning from purgatory, thanks to the vampire Benny, and getting Sam back on the road after he left the hunting life behind. The premiere is also slated to show Kevin back with Sam and Dean, and as previews have teased, he tells them there’s a way to close the gates of hell for good. Considering what Kevin is going to know, of course Crowley wants him, but will Crowley have met his match with Mrs. Tran? The role is a possibly recurring one, so you have to wonder if she’ll survive this Crowley encounter or if something could go very wrong and someone else around the Winchesters will die.
Previous spoilers also teased that Castiel will be back in this episode (in a flashback to purgatory). Will that come about during one of Sam and Dean’s talks? Could it come up around Crowley since he has plans for the angel?
