Supernatural “Mother’s Little Helper” Description – Misha Collins Directs!

Misha Collins is directing the March 25 episode of Supernatural, and The CW just released an official description to tell us what it’s all about!

CaptivesThe title of the episode is “Mother’s Little Helper.”

MISHA COLLINS MAKES HIS DIRECTING DEBUT — Dean (Jensen Ackles) struggles with the after effects of the Mark of Cain.  Meanwhile, Sam (Jared Padalecki) hears about a case where straight-laced people are turning into violent murderers.  Sam suspects possession and suggests to Dean that they investigate, but Dean tells him to go without him.  While interviewing the local townsfolk, Sam meets an elderly woman named Julia (guest star Jenny O’Hara), who tells him the Men of Letters came to town in 1958.  Josie tells Sam the story of a young man named Henry Winchester (guest star Gil McKinney) and his female companion, Josie Sands (guest star Alaina Huffman).  While Sam is away, Crowley (Mark Sheppard) tests Dean.  Misha Collins directed the episode written by Adam Glass (#917).

  1. I can’t wait for Misha’s directorial debut; this episode sounds very well written. Plus, it’s complex, which shows their confidence in him as a director! I absolutely love Misha and his Cas! In fact, Misha’s Cas is the main reason I watch SPN. Hope to see more of Cas and Team Free Will in upcoming episodes, both now AND in season ten. Also, wouldn’t mind seeing Misha directing again in season ten, too!

  2. I wish the writers had stuck to their original plan of killing off cas in season 5 and we’d be done with this boring angel stuff. There are thousands of unused Supernatural myths and legends that could be covered but no we get stuck with endless repetition and boring angels. Then just when one looks like being interesting – Bartholomew – they have a limp cas kill him! Why couldn’t they have been brave enough to have it the other way round??
    I’m sorry deb, but if you watch it just cas then you’re missing the whole point! It is about the Winchester Brothers! Collins is just a recurring (too often) guest.
    No more angels in Season 10 PLEASE?
    If it must end let it go out on a high!

  3. actually SPN has grown over the years to become a story about the interrelationships between the brothers, Cas and Crowley. The relationships are complicated and the boundaries between what’s good and what’s evil are now often blurred leading to unexpected consequences. The episodes that work best are now the ones with all the main characters. To take Cas permanently out of the equation would definite cripple the show not to mention piss off a huge part of the fandom. I look forward to watching Misha’s directorial debut episode and upcoming myth arc episodes especially the ones with all 4 of our favorite characters.

    Memi51, if you re so unhappy with SPN, I suggest you watch something else. Thousands of fans adore Cas on the show.

  4. lol angel storylnes are really boring i agree. and this show always has been and is and always will be about the BROTHERS. so it doesnt matter which other characters are dying or living. all i care about is Sam & Dean and their brotherhood. and also if you forget about the root of the storyline of the show then its only u who needs to rethink about ur opinions. Cass is a guest starring who appears too many times but that doesnt make him equally important like Sam or Dean. so stop comparing him with the Winchesters!

  5. I can’t wait for this episode! I adore Castiel just as much as the Winchester, and I’m so glad Misha gets to direct an episode. I’m sure he’ll do a fantastic job. Also, the Mark Of Cain story-line sounds very interesting.

  6. Wow, Yes the show is about the relationship between Sam and Dean but did that many people actually miss the entire backstory? The angels demons theme has been built into this show since the first episode. Everything the yellow eyed demon did was to further a goal, raise Lucifer (an angel albeit a fallen one from hell). In fact the storyline goes back father than that to Mary and John’s youth.

    Everything happening in the series now draws from the original heaven/hell struggle, these are the consequences of the apocalypse not occurring and Sam and Dean have to deal with the fallout, including angels gone wild in the absence of any sort of leadership in heaven. God is off somewhere smelling the roses and the archangels are all dead/caged.

    I would be a lot more disappointed if the writers just decided to blow off what has been an amazing backstory affecting the Winchester family over generations to play ‘monster of the week’.
