Like some other shows, "Supernatural" will take on the Valentine's Day event in next week's episode. A cupid but not like the usual cherub on mission to make people fall in love with each other will be the Winchester brothers' problem in "My Bloody Valentine".
Castiel helps Sam and Dean hunt down Cupid on Valentine's Day after townspeople start to kill each other for love. However, after Cupid tells them he's innocent, they discover Famine (guest star James Otis), one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, has arrived in town.
Lex Medlin who was last seen on NBC's "Southland" guests stars as Cupid. The producers were specifically looking for an actor who can portray a "doughy, out of shape, naked" angel of matchmaking. The Cupid is supposed to greet everyone with "enormous bear hugs that almost break their ribs."
The Valentine's special will air on Thursday, February 11.
