    Stargate and Sanctuary veteran Amanda Tapping is adding another genre favorite to her resume as “Queen of Sci-Fi.” She’ll appear in a major recurring role in the eighth season of Supernatural, according to TV Line.
    Tapping will play Naomi, described by showrunner Jeremy Carver as “cool and mysterious, part of a new group of angels we’ve never seen before.” Naomi’s demeanor is efficient and put-together, but this only hides a lot more going on under the surface.
    She’ll make her first appearance in the seventh episode of Season Eight, titled “A Little Slice of Kevin.

    Season Eight of Supernatural premieres Wednesday, October 3 at 9/8c on The CW

    She must like shows that begin with "S".

    Nice, I'll be looking forward to seeing her pop up.

    Still a bit pissed about what happened to Sanctuary.

    One of the episodes she's on has to be just her and the two stars in a tank of water. She does some of her best work then.

    I can't stand Supernatural.

    Ugh, now I'm going to have to watch some of it. I hope she puts those dumbasses in their place.

    They should go out with a bang and get Amanda, Summer and Katee Sackhoff. With Felicia Day returning.

    They only hate young females that are brought in as love interests, the fanbase seemed to love Missouri, Ellen, the chick who had her eyes burned out by an angel and even Jo after it became clear she wasn't going to be used as a love interest.
    As long as Tapping'c character keeps her finders of Dean she's save ... or maybe she will be allowed to touch him, I remember some Dean/Ellen shipping going on during season2.

    I wonder if her new group of angels is one that shelters and protects monsters. :D

    In any case, this is good news. Amanda Tapping rocks.

    Amanda Tapping may be a good fit. As always, my love for Supernatural remains, but with it moving to Wednesday evenings and my new responsibilities at work, I'll be forced to watch it at a later time online. Someone else is going to have to take over the responsibility of starting the episode threads. Who's going to do it?

    Can't you just start the topic Tuesday morning or Tuesday night?

    It'd be pretty weird to see someone else start the topics after you did them for so many years.
