The CW has released the synopsis for Supernatural season 9, episode 8 “Rock and a Hard Place,” featuring the return of fan favorite Jody Mills.
The official press release had the following information about the episode:
SAM AND DEAN REUNITE WITH SHERIFF MILLS — Sheriff Mills (guest star Kim Rhodes) calls Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help investigating multiple murders in her small town. Discovering all four victims belonged to the same church chastity group, Sam and Dean decide to infiltrate by joining the group themselves. When Dean disappears, Sam and Sheriff Mills realize whatever they are hunting has taken Dean too and team up to rescue him. John MacCarthy directed the episode written by Jenny Klein (908).
The last time we saw Jody Mills, she was on a blind date with Crowley in the season 8 finale when the King of Hell was systematically killing everyone the Winchesters had ever saved. By agreeing to hand over the demon tablet, the Winchesters saved her life at the last moment.
Prior to that, Jody teamed up with Sam to save Dean when he was sent back in time by the god of time, Chronos. The two bonded over losing Bobby, and it looks like their bond will continue to grow in this episode as they team up once again to save Dean.
Supernatural season 9, episode 8 “Rock and a Hard Place” airs Tuesday, November 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET on The CW.
