Supernatural returns to the CW Network on Friday, March 16 after a month-long hiatus with Episode 7.16: Out With the Old. The following week's episode, Episode 7.17: The Born-Again Identity, marks the return of show favorites Misha Collins and Rachel Miner. A new batch of photos has been released from Episode 7.17: The Born-Again Identity, which gives us our first look at both Misha Collins and Rachel Miner. Click on the photos below to access our gallery, and read on for more information about this upcoming episode.
Back in December, we reported that Misha Collins will return, although he may or may not be playing Castiel. This upcoming episode centers on Dean (Jensen Ackles), who is desperate to save his brother Sam (Jared Padalecki) from a mental breakdown. Sam seeks out a healer, played by Misha Collins, and executive producer Sera Gamble previously revealed that the actor won't be back, "in exactly the form you've seen him before."
Misha Collins is also slated to appear in two more episodes past Episode 7.17: The Born-Again Identity.
Last month, we reported that Rachel Miner was returning this season in an unknown Season 7 episode, portraying the demon Meg Masters. There was speculation that she may turn up in this episode, since Meg Masters was romantically involved with Castiel during her last appearance in Episode 6.10: Caged Heat. While these photos above confirm that Misha Collins and Rachel Miner will share the screen once more, it isn't known if their romance will be rekindled in Episode 7.17: The Born-Again Identity.
