Supernatural season 10, episode 12, “About a Boy,” airs tonight as Dean is transformed into his 14-year-old self.
The Road So Far
Previously, the Mark of Cain continued to affect Dean; his bloodlust eventually exploded, causing Dean to slaughter a roomful of humans, much to Sam and Castiel’s horror. The brothers resorted to asking for Metatron’s help, but the scribe of God demanded a price Dean wasn’t willing to pay for the information, and Dean nearly killed him.
Meanwhile, Castiel tried to reconnect with Jimmy Novak’s daughter, Claire, now a teenage delinquent. After Claire nearly got Dean killed, Claire and Castiel reconciled before Claire went off on her own. And in Hell, Rowena manipulated Crowley into releasing her from her captivity and continued to weasel her way into Crowley’s circle.
Later, the brothers reunited with Charlie, who returned from Oz split into a good and a dark half. The brothers helped bring her two halves together, though Dean continued to struggle with the Mark’s bloodlust.

If that promo has whet your appetite, make sure to read the official synopsis for the 12th episode of the season:
“DEAN IS TURNED INTO HIS 14 YEAR OLD SELF — Looking to get Dean (Jensen Ackles) out of the bunker, Sam (Jared Padalecki) finds a case for him and Dean to investigate — people are disappearing into thin air with only their clothes left behind. 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. Serge Ladouceur directed this episode written by Adam Glass (#1012).”
