TVLine Items: Supernatural Fave Visits Winchesters, Flash Promotion and More

Supernatural Loki The Winchesters

Another familiar face from the world of Supernatural is popping up on The Winchesters.

Richard Speight Jr., who played Norse trickster Loki in 12 episodes of The CW’s parent series, is bringing the character over to its prequel spinoff, TV Insider reports.

Accurately described as being “dangerous” and “wily,” Loki will make his return in Episode 8.

As TVLine exclusively reported, Gil McKinney — who played Sam and Dean’s paternal grandfather Henry on Supernatural — will also be reprising his role in an upcoming episode of The Winchesters.
