After introducing Cupid and Famine, Supernatural will be introducing yet another mythical being. Baldur, also known as the God of Light, will be gracing the fifth season, and according to Digital Spy, actor Adam Croasdell has been cast to play the role. "It's fantastic being a part of such a popular show and exciting to be in the American arena. I'm looking forward to the challenge," the Zimbabwe-born British actor tells Digital Spy of his Supernatural debut. Croasdell, 29, is perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Al Jenkins on EastEnders. He has played various characters in Smack the Pony and is credited for portraying Sebastian Montgomery on The Chase. He has also appeared in Holby City, Peak Practice, London's Burning, Agatha Christie's Cat Among the Pigeons, Ultimate Force, and The Prince and Me 3: Royal Honeymoon. In Norse mythology, Baldur is the son of Odin and Frigg, and is associated with light because he's so bright (intelligent) that light shined from him. Also associated with beauty, love and happiness, he is loved by both gods and men and is considered to be the best of the gods. At this point, though, it's not clear how Baldur will be introduced on Supernatural or what role he will play in the Winchesters' fight against the Apocalypse. Source Here
Disappearing from the screen for five long weeks is "Vampire Diaries" companion on Thursday, " Supernatural ". When it returns, the Winchester brothers will fight flesh-eating zombies who want to turn the whole town into chew toys. One highlight seen in the preview is the appearance of Bobby's dead wife. In season 3 episode "Dream a Little Dream of Me", it was revealed that Bobby got into hunting after witnessing the possession of his wife and killing her. He bears immense guilt for what he did to her, and has taken some sort of unwritten vow to become involved with the supernatural to prevent what happened to him from ever happening to anyone else.

It's Valentine's Day on Supernatural, or as Dean would call it the "Unattached Drifter Christmas," but don't expect Dean to hit the bars and hook up with desperate lonely girls anytime soon. It looks like something is seriously wrong with him and we find out why tonight in the episode fittingly called "My Bloody Valentine." This should be a good installment considering that Supernatural will go on a five-week hiatus after this. I can only imagine something big going down tonight as we meet two new characters: Cupid and Famine. Cupid isn't the little flying fat kid in diapers we've come to know fables. He's actually a lower order of angel or a third class cherub, and apparently, there are plenty of others like him all over the world. Cas thinks he's causing the townspeople to kill each other for love so he drags the Winchester boys for a mission to stop him. While Cupid seems dangerous based on Cas' description, his sweet, warm fuzzy persona tells you otherwise. The best thing about him, though, is his "handshake." While Cas, Dean and Sam are barking up the wrong tree, Famine, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, wreaks havoc in town which explains why people are drinking and eating themselves to death.

A few weeks ago, BuddyTV reported that sci-fi favorite Michael Shanks, who is best known for his role as Dr. Daniel Jackson on Stargate SG-1, will soon be gracing the world of Supernatural. At the time, though, not much has been revealed about Shanks' character except that he will play a man in a local militia. Most recently, Shanks spoke to Newsarama about his Supernatural debut, as well as a few details about his character Rob. Warning: Minor Spoilers Ahead!!! "The character's name is Rob, and he's a member of the Sacrament Lutheran Church, and basically it's a township that has pretty much organized to fight the demon apocalypse that's coming," Shanks revealed. "They're not running and screaming. They're hunkering down. They've figured out a way to fight and whatnot. They boys come across them and are quite enamored by they way they've organized themselves. They have a sort of militia...when a tragedy occurs in Rob's family he sort of takes a bit of a hardline approach when it comes to his beliefs. I'll leave it at that because it starts getting into spoiler territory beyond that." Shanks, who recently appeared as Hawkman on Smallville, acknowledges that he didn't land a pivotal role on Supernatural but asserts that he had a blast working with the cast and crew of the show. "I had a relatively minor role in it, working with Jared [Padalecki] and Jensen [Ackles], and a few other actors, fighting some demons and throwing down with the boys. I think that will be out in a couple months. The episode is called, I think, '99 Problems'. I'm not featured quite prominently in it, but it was a lot of fun to play in that universe. It fit into my schedule quite handily. That's why I did it," he said. "99 Problems" is the 17th episode of Supernatural's fifth season. This installment also marks the 99th episode of the show.

There's good and bad news for fans of the CW's Thursday night schedule. First, the bad news: after this week, both Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries will be taking a five-week hiatus, with reruns filling the Thursday night schedule through the middle of March. What's the good news? When Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries return with new episodes starting March 25, their seasons will finish uninterrupted with eight brand new episodes each. While it might be frustrating to go so long without new episodes, the promise of finishing out the seasons with eight straight new episodes is a nice change of pace. Last year, for example, the second half of Supernatural's season had four episodes, followed by a four week break, follow by four episodes, followed by a two week break, followed by the final four episodes. By putting those two breaks together, Supernatural will have a more consistent ending. The move also works well for The Vampire Diaries, since this week's new episode promises to close out the Tomb chapter of the season. Rather than stop and start another story arc, the show will get to finish out the season with one long plot. And if Supernatural fans still need more, the show is currently running every weekday at 10am on TNT, currently airing the second season. TNT will also have a special President's Day Supernatural marathon this Monday where fans can catch 10 of the show's funnier episodes. The marathon includes the Trickster episodes "Tall Tales" and "Mystery Spot" and writer Ben Edlund's "Hollywood Babylon," "Bad Day at Black Rock" and "Monster Movie." But still remember to catch brand new episodes of The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural this Thursday starting at 8pm on the CW. Source Here
When it rains it pours, and now Supernatural fans have two more clips from the upcoming episode, "My Bloody Valentine." The episode sees Sam, Dean and Cas facing Cupid on Valentine's Day. But don't hold your breath for a rose or a box of chocolates. In these two clips, we get the customary set up for an episode of Supernatural, complete with the boys in a motel and the boys in a morgue. In the first time I can remember, Cas joins them in the morgue, providing some very good laughs. The first clip features Sam wondering why Dean isn't excited about Valentine's Day, since it's a day full of lonely girls in bars desperate for companionship. Dean's code name for the holiday is certainly one of the funniest lines Supernatural has had in a while. To Read More Click Here .
If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Supernatural writer Ben Edlund in person, or seeing him talk, just imagine Shaggy from Scooby Doo, only with Velma's intelligence. The man behind the garlic pizza-hating Dracula in "Monster Movie" and the suicidal teddy bear in "Wishful Thinking" acts exactly how you'd think he would. At the Supernatural 100th episode party, Edlund was having a great time and I got to talk to him about what it's like to be a writer on Supernatural, his upcoming episode "My Bloody Valentine" and the possibility of season 6. Check out the highlights or listen to the entire interview. To Read More Click Here .
Next week, Supernatural celebrates Valentine's Day, but it's not going to be all warm and mushy, unless you're referring to human entrails. During the Supernatural 100th episode party, I spoke to Ben Edlund, the writer of "My Bloody Valentine," and he called it one of the most gross and disgusting episodes in Supernatural history. We'll have the full interview up early next week. For now, you can enjoy a clip from the next new episode of Supernatural. In the clip, Sam, Dean and Cas meet Cupid, and it's probably not what you were expecting, unless you fantasize about the Winchesters being hugged by a giant baby. Source & Preview
