Ben Edlund has tackled meta, witches, fairies and more in his Supernatural scripts and now he’s taking on a brand new creature to the Winchester universe: golems.
In an early February episode, titled “Everybody Hates Hitler”, Sam and Dean stumble on a very unusual case: “Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate the death of Rabbi Bass (guest star Hal Linden, “Barney Miller”), who spontaneously combusted. The case becomes ever more confusing when they learn that the Rabbi was researching Nazi Necromancers. Sam and Dean are attacked by a Golem (guest star John DeSantis) who turns out to belong to the Rabbi’s grandson, Aaron (Adam Rose). The key to the case lies with the Golem but Aaron doesn’t know how to control him, which leaves everyone in danger. Phil Sgriccia directed the episode written by Bed Edlund.”
If this strange sounding episode had been written by anyone other than Ben Edlund, I might be worried, but because he’s behind it I think we’re in for one heck of a quirky adventure.
Don’t miss this episode of Supernatural on February 6th on The CW.
