Despite potential cliffhangers to the contrary, we knew the Winchester brothers wouldn't stay separated for too long in the new season of Supernatural. But judging by some new pics of their long-awaited reunion, it does not look like it's going too well.
These new shots show off Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) having a pretty tense conversation on the porch of what could be a church, plus we get a few more looks at the young prophet Kevin (Osric Chau), who we met last season.
The conversation definitely looks tense, but this is Supernatural—where everything from breakfast cereal to demons can inspire some angry, pouty faces.
We also get a look at Dean's new vampire pal Benny (Ty Olsson), who plays an unspecified role in helping bust Dean out of purgatory.
The new season is said to focus on the boys' efforts to close the gates of hell, and we're curious to see how the writers up the ante for year eight.
In the meantime, check out nine new pics from the season premiere below, and get your demon-hunting gear ready for the season premiere on Oct. 3:
