With every season of Supernatural, there’s a checklist of things you can expect: Near-death experiences, tear-inducing brother moments, meta episodes, rides in the Impala, and more. Only, in season 11, the show’s giving us a lot more than just rides in the Impala.
Episode four of seaason 11, properly titled “Baby,” is all about the third Winchester brother. (Well, fourth if you include poor Adam.)
“It’s done in a very clever Supernatural way, mind you, but episode four is a very cool episode,” Jared Padalecki said. “It’s all about the Impala. We’ve had this third lead character for 10 seasons strong and, we’re not revealing a personality, but we see just how much a part of the Winchesters’ lives it is.”

In terms of specifics, the only thing we know to expect for sure at this point is a car-wash scene. But according to Padalecki, there are a few other classic Supernatural moments coming our way. “[There’s] a bit of everything: the obligatory Sam-and-Dean-talk-over-the-hood-of-the-Impala, or Sam-and-Dean-talk-in-the-Impala,” he said.
But most importantly, the episode will shine a new light on the Impala’s journey throughout the series. “You kind of see the Impala in work in all these scenes from seasons past where we haven’t necessarily know where it is or known how it got there. You see just how crucial a character it is.”
As for that car-wash scene? As Padalecki put it, “We gotta keep her clean.” (Especially if God’s joining the road trip.)
