The CW has released a clip from next week’s mid-season premiere of Supernatural, “Torn and Frayed.”
The clip opens with Kevin Tran attempting to decipher half of the demon tablet that Castiel managed to take from Crowley after a confrontation in “A Little Slice of Kevin.” After being tortured for information on the tablet and rescued by the Winchesters, Kevin joined his mother in hiding with the Winchesters’ ally Garth. Garth, however, does not appear in the clip.
Dean and Castiel approach Kevin for the recipe for the demon bombs that the young prophet previously helped assemble and used against Crowley. However, Kevin is at his wits’ end, with both the translation of the incomplete tablet and life in hiding. He replies that the ingredients are nearly impossible to come by. Castiel, though, offers to find the items needed and Kevin ends up making a list for him.
According to the episode synopsis, “Torn and Frayed” will also feature Castiel and Dean working to rescue an angel being held by Crowley.
Meanwhile, Sam will be faced with an ultimatum when Amelia demands that he either stay with her or never contact her again. The mid-season finale ended with Sam coming face-to-face with Amelia for the first time since the season premiere after Dean faked an emergency message from her to distract Sam.
“Torn and Frayed” airs Wednesday, January 16 at 9 p.m. ET.
