Season 8 has a lot to do with Purgatory, the Trials and getting the angels off the trail of the Winchesters. And then we meet the Men of Letters; a group of academics who research and gather information about the supernatural and then share the information with an elite group of hunters. They also cease to exist in the 1950s when they are wiped out by the powerful demon, Abaddon, a knight of Hell. The Winchester boys are connected by blood to this organization and they find this out from their time traveling grandfather, Henry Winchester–who inexplicably pops out of a closet and into Sam and Dean’s motel room in 2013. Family hijinx ensue.
Supernatural week is coming to an end but the fun is just beginning. Season 9 starts tonight and I don’t think I will be able to do anything but think of new Winchester antics from the time I wake up until about 8:59pm. Pacific Standard Time. Because I am so freakishly obsessed, I have been scouring the interwebs for any tidbit of information I can find about Season 9, Sam and the trials, Dean and Castiel, plus the fallen angels madness. Just cause I’m in a giving (and SPN obsessed) mood, here are some season 9 mini-spoilers for you and a couple of sneak peeks to tonight’s action.
The Collectiva Diva
You might have heard me squee across the internet when I realized I would get to write about Season 6. The French Mistake! Huzzah! This is one of the few episodes I watch over and over again–just to have a laugh and to marvel at the pure joy that is Supernatural. These guys really love to mess with us, don’t they, fandom? The Collective blog is on a meta roll, and I figured I’d round it out with this epic alternate reality in which Sam and Dean are something called a Jensen Ackles and a Jared Padalecki. They also work with some douchy Twitter troll named Misha. Oh, and Sam is married to fake-Ruby. Ya. This is gonna be good.
As a latecomer to the series, I started watching Supernatural with the express intent on shipping Destiel (I blame Tumblr) and enjoying some very hot guys killing monsters. I took years to begin the show because I didn’t know anything about it except, well, the hot guys killing monsters. Plus, it is on the CW in the middle of the week and programming-wise, that usually is not the sign of my kind of television. Basically, I started watching Supernatural because of the hot dudes and inexplicably fell in love with the show because of the writing, the quick wit and the over arching themes that get me right in the feels. The Winchester feels.
If you need to see it to believe it, here is the proof that before he was Dean Winchester, Jensen Ackles was Eric Brady on the long-running soap opera Days of Our Lives. Oh yes, my Supernatural fans, I bet you didn’t know you needed to see this until now.
Misha Collins, you are my favorite internet troll. Thank you for reminding the fandom that it is okay […]
I couldn’t decide on which meme to bring you for Monday, Collective fans, so here are a few […]
Before Supernatural, Jared Padalecki first made girls swoon as Alexis Bledel’s boyfriend on Gilmore Girls. Ironically, his character […]
If you are new here, Misha is the god of all fandoms now and forever. His scruffy face and trench coat and goofy off-stage attitude have become a symbol of all that is right in the world of obsessive shipping, Destiel and wingkink. Seriously though, the homoerotic on-screen off-screen bromance with Castiel/Misha Collins and Dean/JEnsen Ackles is bloody perfection.
