“I am in desperate and urgent need of my family. I am so sorry to tell you this but I must head home,” the 32-year-old actor told his fans on Facebook over the weekend. He was supposed to attend a fan convention in Europe. “I need all of the love I can get right now. Please please give me a few seconds of your time and write me. #AlwaysKeepFighting.”

In “Paint It Black”, Sam and Dean investigate a string of suicides committed by people with little in common other than the identical, grisly method of death – slow, self-administered disembowlment. All of the victims were members of a Catholic church and had recently given confession, leading the brothers to suspect the priest (Stephen Daniel Curtis) is somehow involved.
Meanwhile, when Crowley (Mark Sheppard) captures Olivette (Teryl Rothery), the leader of the Grand Coven, Rowena (Ruth Connell) pleads her case to be allowed to practice magic freely again.

In “The Things They Carried”, despite Dean’s directive to forget about looking for a cure for the Mark of Cain, Sam (Jared Padalecki) continues to do research.
Dean suspects Sam is hiding something but decides to focus on a new murder case where they run into Cole (Travis Aaron Wade). The three team up and learn a Khan worm is infecting men and turning them into murderers. Unfortunately, the worm makes it’s way into Cole.

Jared recently opened up about his battles with depression while showing some love and support for nonprofit organization To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA), which helps those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.
“And I, in the past, have had my own struggles of not [being] so happy with where I am in life, which is strange and I think it goes to show… Maybe a lot of people don’t know this, but Season 3, we were shooting an episode and I went back to my trailer to get changed and just kind of broke down,” Jared shared to Variety.
He added, “A doctor came to set and talked to me for about 30 minutes, or 45 minutes and said, ‘Jared, I think you’re clinically depressed. I think I should write you a note and we can shut down production for five days and then we can take it from there.’ And it kind of hit me like a sack of bricks.”
