Supernatural's The Walking Dead Crossover With Lucille

People Are Freaking Out Over Supernatural's Huge Nod to The Walking Dead

It's been quite a few years since Jeffrey Dean Morgan left his role on Supernatural as John Winchester, the father of demon-hunter brothers Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki), but the long-running fantasy drama still finds ways to give the fallen patriarch a shout-out. In the latest season 12 episode, Dean strolls in after a hunt holding a bloody, barbed-wire-wrapped bat. "Man, Dad would love this thing," he says, a clear reference to the weapon The Walking Dead's Negan (played by Morgan) carries in the zombie show (a barbed-wire-wrapped bat named Lucille). Naturally, fans lost their minds a little bit.

This isn't the first time there's been a mini-crossover between Supernatural and The Walking Dead, either. Back in October, Ackles shared some behind-the-scenes photos of him holding the Easter egg while shooting the episode, captioning a photo, "Hey Dad, you left something in the impala. #spnfamily #walkingdead." Morgan, for his part, was totally game to get in on the joke and tweeted his former costar a hilarious burn. Maybe he can return the favour by having Negan drive an Impala around in The Walking Dead?
