'Supernatural' sneak peek: Castiel is dead, Dean needs a shower

Season eight of Supernatural is right around the corner, and if you think it's hell to wait, it is still better than spending a year running through Purgatory a la Dean Winchester.

In the clip, a clearly messed up Dean (Jensen Ackles) talks to brother Sam (Jared Padalecki) about running for his life through the realm, and losing Castiel in the process. Dean say Cas "just let go" as things got a little "hairy" down there. But that doesn't necessarily mean Cas is dead. In fact, we know to never count out Mischa Barton's character.

Supernatural returns Oct. 3, 9 p.m.
