Season Eight begins with Dean's seemingly impossible escape from Purgatory, though Castiel is nowhere to be found. However, Dean isn't alone. He's returned with a mysterious comrade-in-arms whose reason for escape is perhaps more than Dean bargained for. Meanwhile, Sam finds himself reconciling the life he discovered while Dean was gone with Dean's sudden reappearance. As the boys struggle with their unexpected reunion, they make a shocking discovery that could lead them on a deeply personal mission to settle old scores. If only they could agree - is this a "family business" or isn't it?

UltraViolet versions being included, at least on the Blu-ray version, was not mentioned at the pre-order listing...but that might possibly be an oversight, since the Season 7
release of this show included it. We'll try to find out. Our thanks to reader Jeremy Joyner for the heads-up about this. Package art isn't available yet (the pre-order listings only display some temporary promo artwork), but stay tuned!
The above-listed extras, copied-and-pasted from Warner's Season 8
listings at their online store, are actually from their Season 7
releases. Our thanks to Matthew and Ralf for the heads-up about that.
