While we're still waiting for a bit of forward momentum on 'Supernatural' season 9, next weeks' "Bad Boys" will take a pit-stop to the past, as Dean is confronted by the fallout of a brief time he spent in a boys' home growing up. The first photos and clips of "Bad Boys" have arrived, so what spell are the 'Supernatural' boys conjuring this week?
While the full set of photos contain some impressively ghoulish makeup jobs, and yet another young Dean, the above sneak peek of 'Bad Boys" keeps things in the present, as Dean reveals a surprising secret to his brother. No, not the big angelic secret, though Dean clearly needs to tiptoe around that whopper as well.
Here's what The CW had to say of next week's "Bad Boys":
YOUNG DEAN --- Dean (Jensen Ackles) gets a call from an old friend named Sonny (guest star Blake Gibbons) asking for help with a ghost. Sonny runs a home for delinquent boys, and Dean was sent there for stealing food when he was younger. Sam (Jared Padalecki) is stunned he never knew this about his brother and asks for more information, but Dean dodges his questions. Another murder occurs while Sam and Dean are at the house, so they scramble to find the culprit before anyone else dies. Meanwhile, Dean looks up an old girlfriend (guest star Erin Karpluk) and recalls his time at the house.
