Supernatural fans are going to want to sit down for this one. Jim Beaver and Steven Williams are returning to Supernatural, TV Line reports. That’s right, Bobby and Rufus are reuniting once more! As if Season 11 couldn’t become even more fantastic, the series is bringing back two fan-favorite characters. I really do applaud the show this year.
It seems Bobby and Rufus will appear via flashback during Episode 16. “[Dean and Sam] are going to be investigating an old case that was once investigated by Bobby and Rufus,” executive producer Jeremy Carver revealed. Said case will also take place during the Season 5 timeline. “There’s a lot of great throwbacks to things that happened [in the fifth season],” he said. Per Carver, viewers will see “the wonderful relationship between Bobby and Rufus. That’s going to be a really neat episode.”
There’s no doubt Supernatural will once again hit it out of the park with this episode. Can you really go wrong with Bobby and Rufus? No, you cannot. Here’s hoping at least a few, if not all, of the Bobby and Rufus moments below will be included.
1. When they argue
Classic Rufus and Bobby.
2. When they call each other names
You can’t have Bobby and Rufus without some name-calling. It’s how they show one another love.
3. When they need each other’s help
Sometimes they work better together than apart.
4. When their hunts take a turn for the worse
Unfortunately, it happens more than they probably wish.
5. When they bond over a few drinks
How else are they going to celebrate a successful hunt?
6. When they’re hilarious
They’re just like Sam and Dean.
7. When they’re sentimental
I’m already feeling a lot of emotions.
Supernatural returns Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 9/8c on The CW.
