Supernatural: Amanda Tapping a New Angel and Mike Farrell Loses His Mind
Supernatural is setting itself up for a new breed of angels when it returns next month for it’s eighth season and is bringing in Amanda Tapping to help bring these winged characters to life. I’m not sure if this means good or bad things for Supernatural, considering how overused the angels can sometimes feel. It’s not that I don’t love them – who doesn’t enjoy Castiel? – but I prefer monsters over angels when it comes to who I want to see most often. But that doesn’t mean I’m not intrigued by the idea of a new bunch of angels, so long as they are handled properly.
According to TVLine, the first of this new group of angels to be cast is Naomi, who will be played by Amanda Tapping. Tapping will have a major recurring role in Season 8, with her first appearance being in Episode 7, “A Little Slice of Kevin.” Showrunner Jeremy Carver describes Naomi as “cool and mysterious,” yet the original casting breakdown made her sound more like a no-nonsense type, usually seen in a business suit with her hair pulled back, but she won’t be as uptight and together as she first appears. Deep down, there’s a plenty of emotion waiting to burst out. During “A Little Slice of Kevin,” it seems likely we will be seeing the prophet Kevin turn up again, possibly meaning Naomi and the new angels with have something to do with his reappearance.
Also recently cast was M*A*S*H veteran Mike Farrell, who will be guest starring in Episode 8. He’ll play Fred Jones, an aging mentalist who’s grasp on reality is slipping. I really want to be excited for Season 8, but after Season 7, which had plenty of strong moments, but even more weak ones, I’m hesitant to put my faith in it. However, Carver’s new position as showrunner is promising. He co-produced the show with creator Eric Kripke a few years ago and has claimed to want to get the series back to its roots.
