Thanks to EntertainmentWeekly.com, we have our first look at what's to come in the Supernatural crossover, which will air Thursday, March 29 at 7 p.m. (central time zone) on the CW network.
Here's what will happen in the episode, according to EW:
After a case-of-the-week puts Dean in a wrestling match with the live plushy — not the show’s first — a grateful pawnshop owner offers the guys a free TV to say thanks. Sam’s not too keen on the idea, but Dean’s never one to turn down a gift. So, he takes the TV back to the bunker to create his “Dean Cave.” Only, everything’s not as it seems with the present. Spoiler: The boys are sucked into a Scooby-Doo cartoon. “Once they get over their amazement at being in the cartoon, two things happen,” co-showrunner Robert Singer tells EW. “They say, ’We’ve been in a situation like this before with the Trickster and I think we’re supposed to play this out.’ And then they realize they’re in a Scooby-Doo cartoon, which makes Dean incredibly excited because Scooby-Doo was his favorite cartoon growing up.”
In fact, Dean’s extensive Scooby knowledge will come in handy rather quickly when he recognizes the episode they’re in (which is based on the 1970 Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode “A Night of Fright Is No Delight”). But this episode isn’t exactly a repeat. This time, there’s a Supernatural-level monster at work, and, as co-showrunner Andrew Dabb puts it, “It gets pretty dark.” Singer adds, “There are things you wouldn’t see in a regular Scooby-Doo cartoon.” In other words, the monster won’t be a man in a mask. “They walk into an old episode of Scooby-Doo,” explains Dabb. “But it may end up being a new episode of Supernatural.”
EW has an exclusive first look at the hour, including a shot of Dean holding hands with Daphne, which is no accident. “Dean came of age in a time before the internet when Daphne wasn’t so bad,” Dabb says. “Dean has very strong opinions on all the Scooby characters, but especially Daphne and Fred.” And he’ll get to share them all when “Scoobynatural” airs on Thursday, March 29.
This description has made me even more excited than before for the upcoming crossover event, and these two still images of the episode only amp up the excitement level further!
Additionally, according to The Futon Critic, Scooby-Doo veteran writer Jim Krieg (who has written several episodes of What's New, Scooby-Doo, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, in addition to FrankenCreepy, the KISS film, Haunted Hollywood and the one Get A Clue episode which included the rest of the gang) will be writing this episode along with Supernatural writer Jeremy Adams.
Never having watched Supernatural, I wasn't particularly excited for this crossover previously. Having seen all of this new information, however, I can't wait to watch this now! I also was quite happy to see they used clips from "Boo Brothers" in the clip from the Entertainment Weekly article. That movie is so underappreciated in my opinion, so it's nice to see it getting some love for once!
