Question: Can you please, please, please confirm or shoot down the rumor that Alona Tal might be returning for an episode of Supernatural this season. And if she is, can you reassure me that she's not getting killed off? I really couldn't handle yet another of my beloved recurring characters being put on the "kicked the bucket" list.

Answer: I can confirm that Alona Tal is not returning for an episode this season and, therefore, will not be getting killed off.
