The CW has released the episode synopsis for the eighth episode of Supernatural‘s eighth season, entitled “Hunter Heroici.”
KSiteTV has the descrpition of the episode that was previous entitled “Dean Amuck”:
CARTOONS AREN’T ALWAYS FUNNY — Castiel (Misha Collins) tells Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) that he’s decided to become a hunter like them. Sam and Dean aren’t sold on the idea but agree to investigate a case Cas found where a man’s heart literally burst through his chest. The guys discover there has been more than one odd murder in the small town and all of them resemble cartoon deaths. Paul Edwards directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb (#808).
This episode was referred to by showrunner Jeremy Carver prior to the start of the season as one of the more out there ideas the show will be exploring this season: “What happens when you find yourself living in a cartoon universe? That’s a lot of fun,” he said. However, this episode will not be animated. “It deals with cartoon physiques in the real world.”
“Hunter Heroici” will air Wednesday, November 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
The CW recently released an intense trailer for the November sweeps episodes of the show, including “Hunter Heroici.”
