What ‘Supernatural’s’ surprise Matt Cohen return means for Sam


While the star of the latest “Supernatural” episode — “Baby” — was undoubtedly the Impala, there was one familiar face that surely delighted longtime fans of the series.

After last appearing in Season 5, Matt Cohen returned as the younger version of John Winchester, appearing in a dream Sam (Jared Padalecki) was having. For Padalecki, having Cohen back on set was a fun little family reunion, even if only for a scene.

“I love Matt. ‘Supernatural’ is such a unique show because even though he hasn’t been on the show in five years, we still see each other several times a year,” the actor tells Zap2it and a group of outlets on the “Supernatural” set. “He’s a buddy, he just became a dad. Most of the time when they call cut, we’d be like, ‘So what’s going on? How’s the baby? How’s the wife?’”

As for what the moment means for Sam — who has rarely come into contact with this younger version of his father — Padalecki thinks it shows a side of his character that is rarely seen.

“It was fun for me to play that part of Sam. Sam’s not often really caught off guard like that,” Padalecki says. “He’s been through a lot. He’s been to hell and to heaven, purgatory. He’s died, killed. He’s not often caught totally off guard, so that was a fun direction for me to go with him.”

“It was a really neat thing to do to use him instead of using Jeffrey Dean Morgan — who I also love — because it puts Sam in an even more awkward position,” the actor continues. “This isn’t the dad he knew.”

As for whether he’ll dream of Cohen’s version of John again, the answer to that particular mystery remains to be seen.
