5 Things We Learned from the Supernatural Panel at Today’s CW Press Event:
The Demon Version of Dean Is Sticking Around in Season 10 (And So is Castiel)
…”but he won’t be what you expect,” teased Executive Producer Jeremy Carver. Plus, there will be a mysterious new character who will be hunting down Dean at the same time as Sam.
As for Cas, he’s “very much in the picture at the beginning of the season. We come back to him where we left off - his grace is fading and he’s in danger of dying if he doesn’t deal with it,” said Carver.
Jensen and Jared Really Do Love Each Other
There were so many feels in the room when the boys were asked what it was like growing up on TV together. “I’d be doing a disservice to try to put into words what I’ve learned from Jensen,” said Jared Padalecki (Sam). “We’ve more than grown up together - we went from single twenty-somethings to husbands and fathers.”
"We have spent more time with each other than any other human on the planet over the last 10 years," said Jensen Ackles (Dean). He’s a brother on and off screen."
All That Stunt Work Takes a Toll
"We always knew it was going to be a physical show form the get-go," said Ackles, who loves the action. "Jared and I try to do as much of the physical stuff as possible - it kind of pisses the stunt guys off a little."
"But the bumps and bruises aren’t as easy as they were when I was 22," said Padalecki.
They’re Not Reading Your Fan Fic
But they might one day! Padalecki said, “I’d love to read fan fiction one day. I love that it inspires thought - that’s the point of art and music. But as an actor, I steer clear of it, simply because the stuff the writers give me about Sam is sacred to me.”
"We don’t pay a lot of attention to the fan fiction, and rightly so," agrees Ackles."We have to keep the character unsoiled in our heads. But listen, if fans are latching onto these characters and coming up with their own stuff, fantastic. We’re entertainment, and people can draw from that what they will."
Nobody Has Any Idea When Or How This Show Will End
Or if they do, they’re not telling. "We still get excited about it," said Ackles. "As long as there’s that fulfillment and excitement, we’ll keep going. As long as people are hanging in here with us, we’ll keep telling the story."
For Padalecki, the show would have to maintain its quality for him to continue. “I truly care about this show and about Sam,” he said. “I’ve spent 9 years of my life with him. We know the show enough and our characters well enough that if there’s an end coming, we won’t push it.”
Let’s hope that NEVER happens. Season 10 premieres October 7th!
Destiel + touch
"I think it’ll be one of the more amusing and engaging episodes we’ve done in a while. I think we can safely call this a meta episode," Carver previewed of the milestone outing, which will be the fifth episode of the new season. "We’re going pretty meta. I would just describe it as something of a love letter to our fans and there will be songs.”
Are Jensen and Jared singing? "I cannot comment any further than that. [Laughs.]"
Will there be dancing? "Potentially."
is it just one song? "There will be more than one song."
Will they be original songs or covers? "There will be a little of both. It’s just going to be real fun and it’s a real celebration of the show and particularly the fans of the show."
The episode is written by Robbie Thompson, and it’s called Fan Fiction.
I AM DYING
here 4 the s10 deancas singing duet
Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?
Officer: Ma’am, you were speeding.
Woman: Oh, I see.
Officer: Can I see your license please?
Woman: I’d give it to you but I don’t have one.
Officer: Don’t have one?
Woman: Lost it 4 times for drunk driving.
Officer: I see…Can I see your vehicle registration papers please.
Woman: I can’t do that.
Officer: Why not?
Woman: I stole this car.
Officer: Stole it?
Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.
Officer: You what?
Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the trunk if you want to see.
The Officer looks at the woman, slowly backs away to his car, and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.
Officer 2: Ma’am, could you step out of your vehicle
The woman steps out of her vehicle.
Woman: Is there a problem sir?
Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.
Woman: Murdered the owner?
Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk of your car, please.
The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.
Officer 2: Is this your car, ma’am?
Woman: Yes, here are the registration papers.
The first officer is stunned.
Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.
The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer. The officer snaps open the clutch purse and examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.
Officer 2: Thank you ma’am, one of my officers told me you didn’t have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.
Woman: Betcha the lying bastard told you I was speeding too.
that was a wild ride
