The description for the possible last ep of the year, 12x08, has been released online and...oh, boy.
THE CHASE CONTINUES – Lucifer’s search for power and influence in a vessel lands him in the White House. The President of The United States (guest star David Chisum) unknowingly makes a deal with the devil, leading Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles), Castiel (Misha Collins), Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) and Rowena (guest star Ruth Connell) to band together to fight the Dark Lord. Directed by Phil Sgriccia the episode was written by Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner (1208). Original airdate 12/8/2016.
Yep, they're going there.
And people were upset about the Hitler ep being too political. o.O
Not sure how I feel about this. I mean we already had God on the show...why not the US President?
On the other hand...in a year where the run for the White House has been so volatile, was this really necessary? But then when you look at the episode's writers. *cringes* I guess we'll wait and see.
Edit: The more I think about this ep the more I don't like it. I looked up the actor playing the President? He's white. Uh.... Didn't Dean mention to someone in an earlier season that our President is black?
Yep, looked it up and here's the quote from "Time After Time":
Eliot Ness: He's, uh, from the future.
Dean Winchester: Yeah. Gas costs four bucks, you get cheese out of a spray can. The President is a black man. I could go on.
Ezra Moore: Paint me impressed.
I can't help thinking that this episode (12x08) sounds like a Jump The Shark moment for the show. You know me, you know that I love SPN with all my heart and I always support it and it's cast & crew & writers but this? Has me worried.
