Supernatural Teasers: Dean is De-aged?!

by Clarissa / January 15, 2015

It looks like Dean is getting turned into a 14 year old in an early February episode of Supernatural.

In “About a Boy”, Sam wants to get Dean out of the Men of Letters bunker and finds a case for the two of them to investigate that involves people who disappear into thin air with only their clothes left behind. What’s behind the mysterious disappearances? According to the network, “Sam and Dean suspect fairies or angels, but the truth turns out to be much more shocking – Hansel (guest star Mark Acheson), from Hansel and Gretel lore, is kidnapping people and turning them into their younger selves to placate the evil witch (guest star Lesley Nicol). Unfortunately, Dean finds this information out the hard way after he becomes Hansel’s next victim and reverts to his 14 year old self.”

This episode was written by Adam Glass, who also wrote the episode “Bad Boys” that dealt with a flashback to a teenage Dean’s time in a home for wayward boys. Astute fans probably noticed a quick flash of Dylan Everett, who played Dean in that episode, in the new extended preview for Supernatural‘s return.

Don’t miss this all new episode of Supernatural airing on February 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
