The CW has released the official synopsis of the fifteenth episode of Supernatural‘s eighth season, titled “Remember the Titans.”
The official press release has the following information about the episode:
GODS VS. ZOMBIES — Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are stumped when they investigate a possible zombie case where an amnesiac man (guest star John Reardon) dies and then revives himself once a day. After the guy is attacked by the goddess Artemis [guest star Anna Von Hooft], Sam and Dean realize he’s not a zombie but instead a God, more specifically, Prometheus. Steve Boyum directed the episode written by Daniel Loflin (#816).
This will not be the first time the Winchesters have faced off against gods. Season 5′s “Hammer of the Gods” in particular introduced a number of gods from various world mythologies.
In Greek mythology, Prometheus was a Titan who stole fire from Zeus for humanity’s use. As punishment, Zeus sentenced him to eternal suffering; he was tied to a rock and each day an eagle was sent to eat his liver. It would then grow back to be eaten again the next day.
Artemis was goddess of the hunt, wilderness, wild animals, and fertility. Widely revered in Greek mythology, Artemis was also Apollo’s, the sun god’s, twin, and in some versions of the myth, Artemis and Apollo petitioned Zeus to allow Hercules to rescue Prometheus from his punishment.
This looks like another Supernatural twist on a well-known story, and we’re looking forward to the show’s take on Greek mythology!
“Remember the Titans” airs Wednesday, February 27 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
