Supernatural Season 11 First Look: Sam and Cas Are Bruised, Bloody — Plus: Crowley's Fate Revealed!

Looks like Dean and Sam’s fight against The Darkness is going to get ugly — at least for one of them.

In these exclusive photos from Supernatural‘s Season 11 premiere (airing Oct. 7 at 9/8c on The CW), one of the brothers — we’re looking at you, Sam — is worse for wear, sporting a shiner, as he stands amid a bloodbath.

The messy state of affairs also extends to Castiel, who was last seen getting whammied by Rowena to attack Crowley.

“Castiel, first and foremost, has to find a way out of this spell that Rowena has cast on him,” executive producer Jeremy Carver tells TVLine. “That’s not as easy as it may sound. Being under the influence of this spell, it’s going to lead him to some pretty uncomfortable situations.”

Meanwhile, the King of Hell seems to have fared much better, having survived the confrontation without a scratch. But there’s a new source of trouble for Crowley, who is “very much trying to figure out how he is going to navigate this new world where The Darkness threatens just about everything,” Carver previews.
