“JENSEN ACKLES DIRECTS — Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate a string of unusual murders where the victims were all recipients of organs from the same donor. The killer is captured, but things become even more complicated when the brothers find their killer in a trance mumbling an ancient prayer.”
Sam and Dean will be investigating these unusual murders, and the detective they run into on the case is someone with a very familiar last name. Jensen Ackles’ father, Alan Ackles, is going to be guest starring as Detective Pike, and a few of the photos offer a look at father and son together, both in the episode and behind the scenes. Based on the photos, the case is going to lead Sam and Dean to a strip club. Will that be where they find the killer?
