Question: You told us that Jeffrey Dean Morgan was going to be in more than one episode of Supernatural this season, and then John Winchester dies at the end of last week's premiere! Is he somehow not really dead?

Answer:

Actually, exec producer Eric Kripke said that, and he's standing by his words. "John Winchester really is dead," Kripke insists. "But the show is called Supernatural, and characters can come back in all sorts of ways. In the short term, we want the boys to deal with their dads unexpected death, and all the drama and angst that comes out of that, so we wont see John for a little while. But this isnt the last we hear from him." In other words, be careful who you call a liar, Charissa!
