'Supernatural' Season 15 Episode 7: Dean asks Sam and Eileen to 'put the sock on the door' as he leaves on solo mission
'Supernatural' is best known in the fandom for its borderline homoerotic male friendships, but not so much for any of their romantic storylines. Well, with the end truly approaching, the showrunners seem to be giving us a taste of romance as well.
We got the first hint of that when Eileen (Shoshannah Stern) was brought back from the dead in the previously aired Season15 Episode 6, titled 'Golden Time'.
The CW show has been on for 15 seasons and over the years we have met many new characters, but very few of them went on to become a love interest for either Sam (Jared Padalecki) or Dean (Jensen Ackles).
They have both come very close to achieving domestic bliss and yet, their fate as hunters, descendants of the Men of Letters and as the potential vessels for the archangels, Michael and Lucifer at the time of apocalypse always came in the way of that.
Eileen Leahy, an Irish-American hunter, who was an ally of the Winchester brothers and was murdered in Arthur's hellhound, was brought back as a ghost when God (Rob Benedict) opened the Rupture to Hell.
However, the Winchesters were able to bring her back as a human using Rowena's (Ruth McConnell) resurrection spell and we can finally see the continuation of Sam and Eileen's hitherto unwritten love story.
The fans are certainly excited about the prospect of this, with one fan tweeting, "Eileen and Sam reunited after she came back to life... #Supernatural" and another saying, "SAM AND EILEEN, LISTEN... I ship it and now I need it. I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY DID THAT. It's nice to have a win."
And, it seems like it is not just us who are excited about this reunion. Dean, who is leaving his brother at the bunker alone and going on a solo mission to clear his mind will be seen telling his brother, "If things go your way just make sure you put the sock on the door so I know," as he heads out.
We certainly hope Sam takes him up on that offer. We will find out soon enough, when Season 15 Episode 7 of 'Supernatural', titled 'Last Call' airs on The CW on Thursday, December 5.
