Sam and Dean first met Adam Milligan in the fourth season of Supernatural, when he claimed to be their half-brother and John Winchester’s third son. And, spoiler alert, his legend checked out. That’s why when season 5 rolled around and the apocalypse used to be quick impending, Adam used to be in a location to serve as Michael’s vessel for the Biblical brother showdown between archangels Michael and Lucifer. (Michael used to be in Adam’s body, and Lucifer used to be in Sam’s.) But when Sam took it upon himself to combat Lucifer from the inner and soar into hell, all four of them — the angels and their vessels — harm up in the cage.
Castiel managed to drag Sam’s body out by the remainder scene of season 5 — though his soul would remain in hell for 180 years (time is varied down there) — and Lucifer would gain away about a seasons later. And now, it’s time for the many two to total the a related. “Adam’s been a persona who the followers enjoy talked about for a very lengthy time, and we’ve talked about bringing him again for a very lengthy time,” co-showrunner Andrew Dabb tells EW. “It felt admire the time now, now not factual since it’s our remaining season, but because we are dealing with God and each varied archangel is ineffective or somewhere, so the one we’ve received left is Michael. So it made sense to bring both the characters again. I focus on it’s crucial to impart that Adam’s coming again and he has his legend, but Michael’s coming again too and he has a account of his own.”
Even supposing the alternate universe’s Michael performed a enormous share in seasons 13 and 14, this is our world’s Michael, the one who’s been in a cage for years and who, per Belphagor, hasn’t left factual but. But he will quickly. And he would possibly perhaps perhaps perhaps now not be sufficient with what he finds. “He’s coming again precise into a global the put he went to test out to trigger an apocalypse to bring his father again, it didn’t work, and he’s about to search out out his father came again due to those two idiots in flannel,” Dabb says of Michael. “It’s now not the enviornment he wished to stroll again into, let’s build it that system.”
Whether or now not Michael’s return explains the two Adams in a latest trailer for season 15 is but to be seen. (Let’s now not put out of your mind Dabb also confirmed alternate universes are aloof at play.)
