The next episode of Supernatural will bring back some old faces, and introduce some new ones in “The Rising Son”. Now that the guys have decided to bring Jack back to the bunker, they may find that taking care of the kid will bring more problems than they thought.
“The Rising Son” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, LV) (HDTV)
WHAT EVIL THIS WAY COMES… — Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) begin to explore what Jack (Alexander Calvert) is capable of doing with his powers. An unexpected visit from Donatello (guest star Keith Szarbajka) alerts the boys to the fact that Jack will need more protection than the Winchesters can provide. There is a new Prince of Hell in town, Asmodeus (guest star Jeffrey Vincent Parise), and with Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) out of the picture, he sets his sights set on Jack. The episode was directed by Thomas J. Wright and written by Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner (#1302). Original airdate 10/19/2017.

One of these problems will be another Prince of Hell, Asmodeus, who is ready to lay claim to ruling Hell and Jack. Thinking back to what Jack was able to do to the other Prince of Hell, I can’t imagine that if this other one gets close he wouldn’t do the same thing. He does remember when the bad lady burned and I am sure that memory will come in handy in the future.
We’ll also be reunited with the prophet Donatello, whom we haven’t seen since season 11. According to the above episode summary from The CW, Donatello arrives to pass along some news or information about Jack that could make protecting him a harder job than they first thought.
In alt-apocalypse world, Mary and Lucifer are going to continue their dance, as well as field a visitor of their own. Could this visitor be our new Archangel Michael?
After a really strong season premiere, I am placing my bets now that the second episode of season 13 will live up to its predecessor. More time with Jack and the guys is what I am looking forward to most. Having them be the adoptive fathers of a wayward boy is something that I am excited to see unfold. Bobby Singer would be proud.
Speaking of Bobby, there is a very good possibility that he could make an appearance this season after all! Showrunner Andrew Dabb mentioned him in a recent EW article:
“Moving into the middle [and] the back-half of the season, we plan to do a lot more exploring of the apocalypse world: What it looks like, what it is, how angels live there, how demons live there, how people live there, [and] hopefully another check-in with Bobby Singer down the road, maybe some other people as well.”
Knowing that they will still be exploring this other reality by that point in the season tells me that getting Mary out is not going to be an easy task. Though I am for them taking their time with this world because it really does offer up some great possibilities. The more we learn about what’s in the episodes to come, the more certain I am of the fact that Supernatural season 13 will be one of the best ones of the series.
Supernatural 13×02 “The Rising Son” airs on Thursday, October 19 at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
