The eleventh season of "Supernatural" wrapped up with Sam (Jared Padalecki) staring down the barrel of the gun held by Lady Toni Bevell (Elizabeth Blackmore), a member of the Men of Letters' London division. Though not for the first time, Sam's apparent injury shook the CW series' huge fan base and made its loyal supporters worried for what has happened to the beloved hunter -- a cliffhanger that will be surely be dealt with when Season 12 opens.
In an appearance this week at the Saturn Awards alongside co-star Jensen Ackles, Padalecki confirmed to TVLine that Sam has indeed been shot by Lady Toni. Though he still doesn't know where exactly his character has been hit.
Padalecki quipped that Sam getting injured is nothing new. But he's thankful that the hunter isn't getting tortured yet.
Mary Winchester's Return -- Are There Consequences?
Another cliffhanger presented during the Season 11 finale was Mary Winchester's (Samantha Smith) resurrection. In the episode, God's sister Amara (Emily Swallow) showed her gratitude to Dean (Ackles) by giving him back what his heart has always wanted - his mom, who tragically died in the hands of a demon when the Winchester brothers are still young.
There was some hope that John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) will also come back to complete the family-of-four. Ackles was hoping for a reunion too, but he also acknowledged that the show's execs "couldn't get" Morgan back, TVLine further reported.
Ackles said he's "anxious to see" how Mary's return will play out on "Supernatural" and whether it will have serious consequences. Padalecki, meanwhile, said he's excited to have Smith back in the series. A self-confessed fan of the show, Padalecki said he's glad that they can do -- and can get away -- with that kind of twist.
How Will 'Supernatural' End?
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in March, Padalecki said that "Supernatural's" series finale should "leave room for opinion and room for interpretation" and shouldn't show Dean and Sam living or dying. The actor hopes that the series finale (whenever that is) will leave the audience wondering about what has happened to the brothers.
Padalecki added that Dean and Sam won't stop fighting as long as they're alive. Ackles, meanwhile, said "there are different roads that the show could certainly go down that would be interesting," the news outlet noted.
"Supernatural" also stars Misha Collins as the angel Castiel and Mark Sheppard as the demon Crowley. The series will return for its 12th season on Thursday, Oct. 13 at 9/8c on The CW.
