'Supernatural' Season 8: Sam And Dean Reunite In New Premiere Clip

We're only two weeks away from the Season 8 premiere of "Supernatural" (Wed., Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. ET) and the CW drama is already tugging at our heartstrings.

In this newly released clip, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) reunite after a year apart -- with Dean obviously still reeling from his time in Purgatory. The Winchester brothers prove just as cautious as they've always been, but we're just pleased to see them hugging it out.

The preview also seems to reveal the fate of the angel Castiel (Misha Collins), who was trapped in Purgatory with Dean ... but given that this is "Supernatural," we're guessing that things aren't exactly as they appear. Check out the video below and share your speculation in the comments!
