Uh-oh. Things are not looking up for Sammy in the September 30 episode of Supernatural, entitled "Hello, Cruel World".
We know from the trailer for the new season - as well as the photos from episode 7.01 - that the boys will have to face an extremely powerful Castiel in the season premiere. But we also know that Sam will be suffering the effects of remembering Hell. The September 30 episode complicates matters even further. Castiel will run into problems as his power may be elevating him to a new pay grade, but it’s also fraught with burdens.
Sam has problems of his own as his terrible new memories cause him to have hallucinations and he’s unable to distinguish reality from his memories. This, of course, puts a tremendous amount of stress on Dean (as per usual) and Bobby is afraid he won’t be able to handle the pressure of dealing with Cas and trying to make sure Sam doesn’t go completely insane. I wonder how the boys might try to deal with Sam’s current problems. At Comic-Con, Gamble indicated that Sam’s condition might not be something they can ever really fix, but they’ll certainly have to find a way to manage it somehow.
