As if being held in an apocalyptic alternate reality wasn’t bad enough, Supernatural‘s Lucifer and Mary are about to face an extra problem: Alt-Michael, who is so not friendly.
In these new pictures from Season 13’s second episode, Mary and Lucifer appear face-to-face with the Genghis Khan-like conqueror (Let’s Stay Together‘s Christian Keyes), who might just put Mark Pellegrino’s fallen archangel to shame.
“Lucifer, on our planet, is the single biggest, worst guy around in a lot of various ways,” executive producer Andrew Dabb earlier told TVLine. That over in apocalypse world, the game’s changed a little bit. And also, that he is still an archangel, he is still an amazingly powerful creature, but he may not be the most powerful.
Dabb also mentioned that Season 13’s Big Bad will be “an old — let’s call him friend — who we have not seen for several years” and who signals from the alternate world. That sure sounds like Michael, doesn’t it?
Here is the approved episode description:
Sam and Dean begin to explore what Jack is capable of doing with his powers. An unexpected visit from Donatello alerts the boys to the fact that Jack will need more protection than the Winchesters can provide. There is a new Prince of Hell in town, Asmodeus (guest star Jeffrey Vincent Parise), and with Lucifer out of the picture, he sets his sights set on Jack.
Supernatural Season 13 debuts next Thursday, Oct. 12 at 8/7c on The CW.
