We first noticed Tom Welling in relation to The Winchesters when he joined the forged and government producers on stage at New York Comedian Con to announce he’d been taking part in Samuel Campbell, Mary’s (Meg Donnelly) father, within the Supernatural prequel. (It’s a Smallville reunion with EP and narrator Jensen Ackles.) And now The CW has launched pictures of his debut — and it appears like he’s been by way of rather a lot!

The sequence started with Samuel going lacking whereas on a looking journey (which sounded fairly acquainted to Supernatural followers), and now in “Reflections,” airing December 6, Mary and John (Drake Rodger) discover trails that lead again to their fathers. (Gil McKinney is ready to reprise his function as John’s father, Henry, on this episode as effectively. Supernatural revealed what occurred to him.)

Additionally, on this episode, Carlos (JoJo Fleites) helps Mary examine the place the Akrida is likely to be hiding, however they uncover greater than they bargained for. In the meantime, Millie (Bianca Kajlich) steps in to assist Latika (Nida Kurshid), Ada (Demetria McKinney), and John to decipher notes left behind, they usually come across a approach to get some solutions.

Based on the character description for The Winchesters‘ Samuel (who was performed by Mitch Pileggi on Supernatural), he’s the patriarch of the Campbell Looking household. He taught Mary the whole lot he knew. Gruff and pragmatic, he’s a veteran Hunter who prefers actions over phrases — and it’s at all times his means or the freeway. However when Samuel groups up with Mary and her mates to save lots of the world, he received’t solely must defeat essentially the most harmful monster he’s ever confronted — he’ll even have to fix his damaged relationship along with his daughter.
