On “Supernatural,” lying is nothing new to the Winchesters — in fact, this summer we spoke with writer Ben Edlund about what makes Sam and Dean so prone to hiding the truth from each other. This season is no exception to the rule, but in this week’s episode, “Blood Brother,” Dean finds himself in a situation where he can no longer lie to Sam about his new comrade-in-arms, Benny the vampire.

“I liked the episode because I got to be on the water. Pirate vampires — or as I like to call them, vampirates,” Jensen Ackles joked while Zap2it was on set with him. It sounds fun, but as Dean’s two worlds collide, things definitely get a little bit difficult, particularly because in some ways, the strength of Dean’s relationship with Benny rivals his relationship with Sam.

“You hear these war stories of soldiers. You get a southern guy and a guy from New York, two completely opposite people, and they get tossed in a foxhole together and they come back closer than brothers,” Jensen says, though he admits that the “closer than brothers” thing could be a bit of an exaggeration. “I wouldn’t pretend to know exactly what kind of bonds are established in war, and I think that if I was to have an idea of what it is, I’m trying to emulate that with the relationship with Benny. These two guys have been through their personal hell and back.”

One thing is for sure — Jensen himself is having a blast in Season 8. Not only has it allowed him a more manageable schedule as he and costar Jared Padalecki shoot separately more often, but Benny has given Jensen fresh angles to play with a character about whom he thought he’d learned everything. “I think for a show going into its eighth season, curveballs like that are awesome,” Jensen says. “I love the relationship that he’s built with this monster. They have earned the respect of each other in such a foreign way.”

In a lot of ways, Dean and Benny were both in their element in the Purgatory warzone, and now that they’re on earth, they’re just getting their sea legs. “I mean, obviously, it was live or die in Purgatory. He knew that he had a way out if he relied on this unlikely friend, and it happened to work out in his favor. Now that they’ve come topside, it’s obviously a very strained situation, and they agree to kind of go their own ways but always have each others’ back.”

This week, Dean’s loyalty is tested — both his loyalty to Sam and his loyalty to Benny. “Benny essentially calls Dean and says, ‘Hey, I’m in a sticky situation here, I could use a friend’ and because of the relationship that was formed in Purgatory, Dean’s like ‘I gotta go,'” Jensen says. After so many years with the character, the decision rang true to Jensen. “I think that we all know that Dean’s that guy. He’s very loyal, but what’s interesting is that his loyalty is now residing with a vampire, a monster … and that obviously puts a strain on the relationship between the brothers. Sam even says ‘You know, push comes to shove, I might be the one that kills Benny,’ and Dean basically says, ‘We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.'”

What we have yet to see, of course, is the way that Purgatory impacted Dean’s relationship with Castiel, who was his only ally in the warzone when they first arrived. We know very little about what happened between those two men after they reunited. The one thing we can be sure of is that it didn’t end well. Jensen can’t offer too much insight for fear of giving too much away, but he did reveal that there’s something Castiel has been hiding from Dean.

“I will say that what I do know is that Cas is going through something that he’s not telling Dean,” Jensen teases. “He’s going through something on a personal level, with himself and his own journey through Purgatory, that Dean is unaware of.”

That’ll be explored more thoroughly in Episode 8, but in the meantime, we turned to Misha Collins for a little bit of elaboration on Castiel’s mindset. Like Jensen, he can’t say a whole lot. “Dean was hell-bent on getting the hell out of Purgatory, whereas Cas, I think, to a certain extent, felt so burdened with guilt that he felt like he was paying penance there,” Misha tells us. “He felt that he almost deserved it.”

And of course, because serious journalism is very important to us, we had to ask both men why Castiel had a beard in Purgatory and Dean did not. “Well, it’s because he’s an angel, and all of his badass angel powers were congregating into his hair follicles because of the intense pressure of the atmosphere in Purgatory,” Misha says.

Jensen’s response is a little bit different. “The answer I got from the writers was ‘Dean has knives,'” he says.

The center of The CW’s Supernatural — and in every fan’s heart — has always been two brothers who drive the open road, “saving people, hunting things,” but occasionally characters have come in to shake up the dynamic, or even come between Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki).

On season eight, one such character introduced was Benny (Ty Olsson), a vampire Dean met while down in Purgatory, who fought alongside the Winchester brothers and earned his trust so much that Dean pulled him out of Purgatory once he returned topside. The two went their separate ways, but in the next all-new episode, “Blood Brother,” they reunite when Benny finds himself in trouble and Dean rushes to his side.

On paper it may seem like Dean is choosing his makeshift brother over his biological one, but don’t worry Supernatural fans, Olsson assured Celebuzz that Benny is not out to rip apart the Winchester bond in any way; his focus is on finding a way to survive in a world he no longer understands.

Celebuzz: When we were on set, Jensen pointed out that he really enjoys the Benny and Dean story, not only because it’s a different side to his character, but also because he really likes working with you.

Ty Olsson: Well, first I wrote Jensen a very large check to say nice things about me!
CB: How did you guys work on developing the relationship between the characters?
TO: We didn’t discuss their relationship beforehand. We both have been doing this a long time, so we do our homework, and we come together, we know what we’re bringing to the table. The great thing about working with an actor like Jensen is he’s present and available and a giving actor… When you work with someone who’s as good as Jensen is, it just brings your game up. So there wasn’t much of a plan going in, but there has been discussion since. When we hit a pause, we’re like ‘What do you think about this?’

CB: How will we see the connection between Dean and Benny grow as we get to know more about their time in Purgatory?

TO: I think that connection starts off as a brothers in arms connection and relying on each other for survival in Purgatory, but after a year of that, it’s just inevitable that they’re going to get to know each other better and more personally. It’s those moments of high stress, for anybody, and constant [fear of] death that you reach out for another human being and some kind of connection… Obviously a lot of that happened in Purgatory, but now that they’re out of Purgatory and back in the real world, they both have that issue of re-assimilating back into society. There’s also that connection of us both going ‘OK, well, I guess we go back to our lives.’ And how do we deal with that in the real world? It’s not like they can always be hanging out, and you see in [“Blood Brother”] a little bit more of that kind of connection between the characters. We’ll see it deepening.
CB: Do you think Benny is being honest and keeping his nose clean, as Dean warned him to do? Or have there been moments we haven’t seen where he’s slid back into old vampire ways?
TO: I think he is being straight with him. The more interesting storyline, and the way the writers are going, is that Benny is dealing with his hunger and this conflict that he has about not being human but also not fitting into the vampire world. That really heavily shows that turmoil that Benny has. I think Benny’s still in Purgatory. He’s not in heaven; he’s not in hell; he’s lost. He’s still in battle, but he’s in battle with himself, and it’s the hardest one yet because he just doesn’t fit anywhere.

CB: Is a part of Benny just trying to find a way back to the place that he called “pure”?

TO: You know how a lot of people spend [years] in jail, and they’re unable to live on the outside, and they keep going back? There’s certainly a possibility that that’s something he tries to solve his problem with. But I don’t think you can just go back to Purgatory so easily! And I also think there’s a drive in him to try to find a way to connect with the world.

CB: When we first saw Benny and Castiel (Misha Collins) meet in Purgatory, it didn’t go very well. Will Benny ever warm up to him?

TO: I don’t know that ‘warm up’ is the word! [Laughs] I think that need for survival keeps them at odds because of the parameters that they established in earlier scenes in Purgatory. I don’t think that becomes a buddy-buddy situation; I think there’s always a third wheel, and in this case, it rotates.

CB: Is that ‘third wheel analogy’ also how Benny feels about Sam when Dean calls his brother for help on “Blood Brother”?

TO: I think Benny understands the conflict that Dean is going through, regarding letting his brother know. I think Benny’s aware that Dean is torn between his actual brother and his army brother, so to speak, and he doesn’t push too hard on that button because Benny’s smart enough not to get between them. He’s looking for a connection; he’s not looking to disconnect others.
CB: Going forward on the season, how involved will Benny be in helping Dean with cases, like searching for the tablets?
TO: I don’t know anything about that at this point. The episodes coming up with Benny, Benny’s in a situation where he’s focused on his own situation right now, and I don’t know that there’s any room for him to be helping out with anything else. We’ve got some great episodes coming up that talk a lot about where Benny came from and his struggles, and they’re going to tell you a lot about what’s up with Benny.

Supernatural airs Wednesday at 9 PM on The CW.

True Blood’s Joe Manganiello will be reprising his role as Marshall’s law school chum Brad on “How I Met Your Mother.”

In the episode, Marshall seeks out Brad to offer him a job at his eco-firm, but finds that Brad has fallen on hard times, however soft he’s gotten.  Lucky for all the fans that love Joe’s trim chiseled body, the show outfitted him with a prosthetic gut.

Said co-star Jason Segel of the transformation: “Just knowing that Joe has that crazy body underneath that fake gut that we put on him — it’s just hilarious to me. He has no sense of vanity despite having every right to have one.

The episode airs, Monday, November 5 and is titled, “Splitsville!” Below is a first look photo of Joe in the episode from the Entertainment Weekly website.
