Tomorrow night, Supernatural returns for the final seven episodes of its fifteenth and final season. The long-running supernatural drama is wrapping up a story that pits the Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester against, basically, God. At the end of last season, the pair squared off with the omnipotent Chuck Shurley (Rob Benedict), and he essentially started unleashing plagues against them. Supernatural is his favorite show, but they didn't give him the finale he wanted, and so it's time to go to war. Ignoring how meta that all feels on a few levels at this point, it sounds like that war is heating up in a big way this month.
The CW has released the official synopses for the four episodes which will air this month. "Last Holiday" brings the series back tomorrow night, while "Gimme Shelter" will air on October 15. October 22 will see the release of "Drag Me Away (From You)" and October 29 brings "Unity" to the boys.

Maybe the most interesting thing here is the flashback episode, which will give fans a more character-driven story than the huge, widescreen stories that the season has brought and that a final season -- especially of a show like Supernatural -- demands.
Supernatural airs on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. The series finale will air on November 19.
