Per Variety, Nate Torrence will play Sam's imaginary friend during a Season 11 episode. Yes, you read that correctly. Sam's imaginary friend from his childhood, named Sully, will return and reappear in front of Sam's eyes. Torrence (Hello Ladies, Weird Loners) is slated for Episode 8, appropriately titled "Just My Imagination." Apparently, Sully needs Sam and Dean's help. If that isn't exciting enough, Supernatural alum Richard Speight Jr. (The Trickster, aka Gabriel) will direct the episode. During Comic-Con 2015, it was revealed that fans would learn Sam had an imaginary friend as a child and that they're real, per FanBolt.
Other details have yet to be revealed about Sully and the episode, but one thing remains certain: Dean's reaction to Sam's imaginary friend will be priceless. As Supernatural fans know, when it comes to reacting to certain situations, Dean is the best. Jensen Ackles never fails in producing spot-on facial expressions that can be turned into GIFs and used for years to come.
With that said, here are 12 ways Dean will probably react to Sam having an imaginary friend.
Let's face it: Dean will be probably be thrilled to find out about Sully. I mean, it's just another reason for him to make fun of Sammy.
He might just be plain confused and not understand why Sam needed an imaginary friend in the first place. Hello, Dean is his brother and best friend!
Dean gets irritated very easily, and Sully will probably contribute to his irritation.
He might just be so devastated to learn that Sammy had an imaginary friend. Why would Sam need another friend when he has Dean? Huh?
Yeah, Dean's definitely going to be embarrassed for his brother at some point.
Knowing him, he'll also make a few faces and express himself through those silly faces.
Typical Dean. When doesn't he get angry?
Why thankful? Because now he can tease Sam for the rest of their lives about Sully.
Hey, you never know. Thanks to the Darkness, Dean might be scared of everything now. (I highly doubt it, but whatever.)
If Sam's the only one who can see Sully, I'd be uncomfortable, too.
Most likely, he'll channel his frustrations with Sully into hunting and possibly helping Sam's imaginary friend.
