If you were hoping to see some familiar faces return for Supernatural's final season, you won't have to wait very long! The first special guest of Season 15 can be seen in new photos from the second episode of the season, titled "Raising Hell."
Everyone's favorite prophet of the Lord, Kevin Tran (Osric Chau), is back, and it's all we can do to keep from snatching him up and protecting him from the cruel world that is Supernatural. We just couldn't bear it if we had to go through Kevin's death again.
The beloved character first appeared in Season 7 of Supernatural, as the adorkable new prophet the boys stumbled upon. Sadly, he was eventually, and mercilessly, killed by Gadreel, which hit Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) pretty hard. As for the Kevin from these photos, he could be from the alternate dimension, but we can't help but notice that Kevin is looking — ahem — a little worse for wear. There's every chance that this episode could resurrect Kevin and drag him directly out of the grave!
Wouldn't that just heal the gaping wound that his death left in our hearts all those years ago? We'll just have to watch this season of Supernatural to find out.
Supernatural premieres Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c on The CW.
