'Supernatural's' Jim Beaver: How will Rufus' death impact Bobby?

Season 6 of "Supernatural" has devoted lots of time to rounding out the character of Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) as we learn more not only about his daily life, but about his past. In the most recent episode, "...And Then They Were None," we learned that once upon a time, Rufus (Steven Williams) and Bobby were hunting partners, similar to the way Sam and Dean are now.Just as we were getting some insight into their time on the road together, Rufus was killed by the monster (or the herpe, as Dean would say) possessing Bobby. Zap2it caught up with Beaver at PaleyFest's "Supernatural" event on Sunday to see whether the death would have a lasting emotional impact on Bobby.Beaver assures us that Bobby didn't walk away from Rufus' grave unscathed, which we'll see in the upcoming episode "My Heart Will Go On." He says, "That deals a little bit with Bobby's response to Rufus's death. There's... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/03/supernaturals-jim-beaver-how-will-rufus-death-impact-bobby.html

'Supernatural': Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles talk soulless Sam

As "Supernatural" fans, we at Zap2it were both relieved and disappointed when Sam (Jared Padalecki) was reunited with his soul in the mid-season finale. We missed the old broody-angsty-emotional Sam, but that's not to say we didn't have a good time with the soulless version's one-liners and shirtless chin-ups.When "Supernatural" was honored at this weekend's PaleyFest, Padalecki shared our sentiment. (Well, maybe not the part about the shirtless chin-ups.) "I do miss soulless Sam," Padalecki admits. "I've not been shy about the fact that I like to play a little bit darker, a little disturbed. I've had a wonderful time as Sam, and he's disturbed enough, but I did have a fun time kind of playing with... what is a soul, where does it reside, what's its influence on your personality and your decisions. So I had a great time. I'm happy to be back, but I do miss the little guy."We spoke with Padalecki's co-star,... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/03/supernatural-jared-padalecki-and-jensen-ackles-talk-soulless-sam.html

'Supernatural': Jared Padalecki talks horseback riding and his charitable causes

There's a quote attributed to W.C. Fields: "Never work with children or animals." While "Supernatural" has had its fair share of creepy kids on set, it's relatively rare that series star Jared Padalecki works with animals (his own pets notwithstanding). As we've seen in previews for upcoming episodes, though, Padalecki did ride a horse for the upcoming Old West themed episode. When Zap2it caught up with him at the PaleyFest event on Sunday, we had to ask him if that old Fields quote rang true in his experience.Luckily, Padalecki has some experience with horseback riding. His wife, Genevieve Cortese Padalecki, is an accomplished equestrian - she starred on ABC Family's "Wildfire," about a horse ranch, for four seasons. "It was so fun," Padalecki says. "I love riding horses. I'm not a great, great rider - my wife is. She did a show about a horse for four years, so she's a tremendous rider. We... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/03/supernatural-jared-padalecki-talks-horseback-riding-and-his-charitable-causes.html

'Supernatural's Misha Collins teases Castiel-centric episode, plans trip to Haiti with fans

In Season 4, "Supernatural" fans got an in-depth look at Jimmy Novak, the man whose body now houses Castiel (Misha Collins), but we have very little insight into Castiel himself when it comes to backstory. During the current sixth season, much of Castiel's story has played out off-screen as he soldiers on in Heaven's brutal civil war. In Episode 20, however, Castiel gets his moment. Showrunner Sera Gamble describes it as a serious episode with a "significant impact." She tells Zap2it, "It's an episode that's largely from Castiel's point of view. We get pretty deep into what he's feeling, and we illuminate his character quite a bit.""It was terrible!" Collins jokes. "I had to work every day! That's not what I signed up for! It's actually kind of tough being the heaviest character in an episode."  He promises that we'll find out just what Castiel has been up to while he hasn't been saving... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/03/supernaturals-misha-collins-teases-castiel-centric-episode-plans-trip-to-haiti-with-fans.html

Supernatural Season Seven Looks More Than Likely

Get happy,  Supernatural  fans! By all accounts, the show that was supposed to end  last  year is very, very possibly getting a renewal for  next  year. Seven seasons of  SPN ? Say hallelujah, everybody! Here's what the executive producers told us about this season's final showdown and what it sets up for the Brothers Winchester in their highly anticipated future: Creator and executive producer  Eric Kripke  tells us they are more than hopeful that a seventh season of the show will be produced by Warner Bros. and picked up by the CW, saying, "We're looking pretty good. We're bullish enough on it that we cliffhang the finale."  Executive producer  Sera Gamble  concurs, saying, "I feel an obligation to answer a fair amount of questions, but also to cliffhang some stuff for next season. We have some stuff cliffhanging at the end of season six, so hopefully, knock on wood, we have a season seven."  And speaking of that cliffhangy finale, Gamble tells us that the Kripkeeper himself came back for the finale funtimes: "The production draft of episode 22 just came out; Eric Kripke wrote it." Kripke tells us, "I'd actually say my favorite thing [in the finale] is the final minute. Stay tuned for the final minute. It's one of those moments where the more you stop to think about it, the more you feel the enjoyment of the writer, looking at what he's doing and going, 'I can't believe I got away with that.' When you look at it subtextually, it's sort of a nutty thing that I did." (We love dirty subtext! Because, come on, the  Supernatural  subtext is always dirty...right?)

Supernatural's Boss: Expect "Unexpected Deaths" in the Season 6 Finale

The Grim Reaper is hitting Supernatural again. As Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) prepare to take on Eve, aka the Mother of All (Julia Maxwell), executive producer Sera Gamble told TVGuide.com at Sunday's PaleyFest that the season finale will feature at least two unexpected deaths. "There will definitely be deaths," said Gamble, who penned the penultimate episode for Season 6.

Supernatural Sneak Peek: The Western Episode from PaleyFest

Lots of spoilers and tidbits came out of the Supernatural panel at PaleyFest today, but what had fans very excited was the sneak peek the audience was treated to for the upcoming Old West episode. Airing on April 22, the episode (which we believe is entitled "Frontierland") will have Sam and Dean sent back to 1861 Wyoming to track down the Colt and a mysterious creature named Phoenix.  The shows stars, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, said that they had a great time filming the episode. The sneak peek for the episode is featured in the first few minutes of the video below.  We initially see two men squared off - a show-down at high noon, perhaps?  One of them is Dean Winchester, who looks mighty fine as a cowboy.  Then we see other scenes: the boys dressing up in Old West garb in preparation of being sent back to the past (with Sam looking pretty ridiculous), Dean wanting to check out the saloons when they're first sent back to 1861 and Sam stepping in horse poop.  Poor guy.

'Supernatural's' Jensen Ackles at PaleyFest: Is Dean's happy ending Butch and Sundance or Thelma and Louise?

The last time "Supernatural" was honored at the PaleyFest event in Los Angeles, they were finishing up their first season. Five years later, they're about to start filming the Season 6 finale, and the stakes have been raised significantly.Zap2it caught up with Jensen Ackles behind the scenes to talk about what's to come for the final stretch of Season 6 -- but before we got the dish on future episodes, we wanted to get Ackles' reaction to the much-buzzed about meta episode, "The French Mistake," in which Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Ackles) suddenly found themselves living in the real world, in which they're better known as Jared and Jensen.Ackles knew it was a groundbreaking episode when, for the first time, the writers decided to run an idea by the actors before breaking the story. "For the first time ever we had a conference call up in the studio at 'Supernatural,' and we had [Eric]... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/03/supernaturals-jensen-ackles-at-paleyfest-is-deans-happy-ending-butch-and-sundance-or-thelma-and-loui.html

Supernatural: Eric Kripke Wrote the Season 6 Finale

Despite Sam Winchester declaring "Nobody says penultimate!", Jim Beaver (Bobby Singer) has confirmed, via his twitter, some news using that word: current showrunner Sera Gamble has written the penultimate script for season 6, while Eric Kripke himself has written the season 6 finale. One can only hope that all of season 6 has been a huge bout of misdirection and that Kripke will whip out the real big bad in the season finale: octocobra. Okay, that's probably not going to happen (booo!), but it's good to know that the show's creator will be back to leave his mark on the season.  I know a lot of fans were probably concerned when Kripke turned over the day-to-day running of the show to Gamble, and while season 6 has had some problems (primarily centered around the big bad), it has had some good stand-alone episodes.  As we hurtle towards the two-hour season finale airing on May 20, we should get deeper into the overall mythology of the season.  Beaver assures fans that Kripke has been involved in the decisions regarding season 6, but that the two-part finale should completely blow our minds and possibly even give us something we "didn't see coming".

'Supernatural': Mary and Ellen return, Sam and Dean meet Eve

"Supernatural" fans, we hope you enjoyed the comedic meta episode, "The French Mistake," because there won't be too many laughs for Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) from now until the finale. Last week's episode, "...And Then There Were None" set the tone for the rest of the season. Things are about to get angsty.When the show returns from its spring hiatus on April 15, some familiar faces are coming back from the dead, and as any demon hunter knows, that's rarely a good sign. Samantha Smith returns as Mary Winchester, Sam and Dean's long-dead mother. The last time we saw her, she was a scary shadow of herself in heaven. Now, her return is especially troublesome, especially since Sam just shot her father. "What would Mom say?" Sam asked his brother in the last episode. Perhaps we're about to find out. Dean doesn't look too thrilled to see his beloved mom in the... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/03/supernatural-mary-and-ellen-return-sam-and-dean-meet-eve.html
