"Supernatural" is not yet ready to get down to the business in its next episode. After an alternate life episode on March 26, next week the show will present a life adapted to comic books written by fictional author named Carver Edlund. The Winchesters brothers are amazed when they find out that Edlund has recounted their ghost-hunting experiences in details.
A noir-themed trailer for the episode called "The Monster at the End of This Book" has been released, showing the graphic arts as well as the kind of monsters that Sam and Dean have encountered in the past. The brothers find out that the comic series are packed with hyperbole and dramatic phrases like "Armed with an iron horse and abs of steel, these heroes pack real heat."
Sam and Dean track down the writer who explains he has visions of the brothers that he then turns into comic books. Carver Edlund reveals that Lilith is coming and she has a plan for Sam.
The April 2 episode is named after a Sesame Street book titled "The Monster at the End of This Book: Starring Lovable, Furry Old Grover". The name of the fictional author itself, Carver Edlund, is taken from the names of two of the show's scribes, Jeremy Carver and Ben Edlund.
