Something is off about Dean in this sneak peek from Supernatural‘s upcoming season 8 premiere. And it’s bone-chilling.

After spending a year in Purgatory “running for [his] life,” though, no one can blame him for being a little on edge. What’s important is that the brothers are back together — but it doesn’t look like Castiel will be joining them any time soon.

“Cas didn’t make it,” Dean reveals to Sam in the clip. “Something happened to him down there. Things got pretty hairy toward the end, and he just let go.”

So…Cas is dead!? Maybe. “I saw enough,” Dean says in a tense moment.

Watch it below:

Also, can we just acknowledge this quote’s existence? “I don’t know whether to give you a hug or take a shower.” (My filthy-minded alter ego says, “Can’t he do both?!”)
