Jeffrey Dean Morgan played iconic (and rather different) characters in The Walking Dead and Supernatural. And the Winchesters have thrown a sly nod to their papa's new gig.
Morgan played Sam and Dean's dad in the early seasons of Supernatural and is now bashing in skulls as Negan on The Walking Dead. His weapon of choice? A barbed-wire-wrapped baseball bat named Lucille, which famously wiped Glenn and Abraham off the board.
This week's episode of Supernatural, "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell," opens with Dean walking into the base and holding a very familiar bat he used to bash up some demons. Yep, it's basically Lucille (though not technically called Lucille). Then, Dean sits it down and drops the mike: "Man, Dad used to love this thing." Oh, you have no idea.
This is obviously just a fun little Easter egg playing on Morgan's roles in both shows, but we prefer to think Sam and Dean are somehow the long-lost children of Negan. Because that's just more fun.
