A Very Special Supernatural Special

1 Carry on, my wayward son there'll be peace when you are done lay your weary head to rest Ohh! Don't you cry no more So, here we are, in Season 10.
That's right.
[ "Carry on Wayward Son" resumes ] What do you say we kill some mutant sons of bitches and we raise a little hell? Collins: I think there are a lot of reasons that "Supernatural" has lasted as long as it has.
What is with you Winchesters, huh? We're in Season 10, and we still care about the Winchesters.
I had to look out for you.
That's my job.
I'd die for you, I'd kill for you, I'd go to the ends of the earth for you.
It just comes back to these two brothers.
I think you're stuck with me.
Man: Rah! Man: I'm really proud of how this show has been willing to be subversive and play with form.
We landed in some dimension where you're Jensen Ackles and I'm something called a Jared Padalecki.
We like to take risks.
Son of a bitch! [ Laughter ] Kind of liked the show.
Had its moments.
Carry on A show that, on paper, is so serious Help me! if we couldn't laugh at ourselves I'm Batman.
I don't think we'd have made it this far.
We got work to do.
Carry on, my wayward son And we haven't hit the wall.
There'll be peace when you are done there's really no end in sight.
Let's go.
Lay your weary head to rest Dean! I look forward to what is gonna happen next.
Don't you cry no more This is going to be so much fun.
Supernatural 10x00 A Very Special Supernatural Special Narrator: Then and now This was dad's single most valuable possession.
it's the story of two brothers Everything he knows about every evil thing is in here.
I think he wants us to pick up where he left off -- you know, saving people, hunting things -- the family business.
I set out to make a horror show.
Man: Aaah! Aaah! Aaah! Here's the deal, ladies -- something's not right.
So if you've heard anything Well, it was like two brothers driving down the road in a badass muscle car, hunting things that go bump in the night.
This one girl, she got murdered out on Centennial.
She hitchhikes, and whoever picks her up -- well, they disappear forever.
[ Woman screams ] Narrator: The early days of "Supernatural" followed a simple monster-of-the-week formula.
That has got to be the freakiest damn scarecrow I've ever seen.
[ Gasps ] Each week was the boys driving into a new town Where are we? We are just outside of Grand Junction.
hunting urban legends.
Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary.
Kripke: And that was it.
It was as simple as that.
Let's hit the road.
[ Engine revs ] Sam: We still have options.
What options? You got burial or cremation.
Narrator: Monsters were the original focus, but that quickly changed.
Come on, Sam, a faith healer? Maybe it's time to have a little faith, Dean.
Faith was a turning point in a lot of ways.
So, if you're not a believer, then why are you here? Apparently, my brother here believes enough for the both of us.
Pray with me, friends.
The audience saw the bond that these brothers had [ Spectators murmuring ] Dean! and that they were willing to go above and beyond to save one another.
Say something! Kripke: It was about religion, it was about fate, it was deeply about Dean as a character.
Woman: I guess, if you're gonna have faith, you can't just have it when the miracles happen.
For all those reasons, we realized the show could be a lot more than just a weekly monster show.
You know, I'm not much of a praying type, but I'm gonna pray for you.
Singer: We learned something from that episode.
There's a miracle right there.
And I think that sort of became a little bit of a template for what we could do.
Kripke: The episodes start to become more and more about the brothers.
And I would say the more that "Supernatural" is about Sam and Dean, the better it is.
Sam: When I told dad I was scared of the thing in my closet, he gave me a .
45.
What was he supposed to do? He was supposed to say, "Don't be afraid of the dark.
" Are you kidding me?! Of course you should be afraid of the dark.
You know what's out there.
Kripke: "Supernatural" is a show about family, and family is, often at the same time, your greatest strength and your greatest weakness.
Narrator: Sam is the kid brother.
Dad? It's inside me.
I can feel it.
Loyalty drives his every decision.
You shoot me in the heart, son! Do it now! Sammy! For better or worse Aaaaah! [ Gasps ] Why didn't you kill it? Killing this demon comes first, before me, before everything.
No, sir, not before everything.
he's even given his life Sam, look out! Ugh! Narrator: Once or twice.
No! Dean has always been the protector.
I got you.
It's my job, right, watch after my pain-in-the-ass little brother? To keep his brother safe Dean: Show your face, you bitch! he would give anything Woman: Let me guess -- you're offering up your own soul? All you got to do is bring Sam back.
[ Gasps ] [ Grunts ] Sam: Did you sell your soul for me? Don't get mad at me.
Ackles: And go to hell and back.
We've done that multiple times.
I had to look out for you.
That's my job.
And what do you think my job is? Go to the ends of the earth for you -- well, we've had to do that several times.
You're my big brother.
There's nothing I wouldn't do for you.
It's two brothers facing impossible odds but always having the will to find the possible.
The thing with "Supernatural" is that you either care about the Winchesters or you don't.
Their relationship is still interesting to us, and that's why we watch.
Dean, you conscious? [ Woman moaning ] Oh, God.
It was a beautiful, natural act, Sam.
It's a part of you I never wanted to see, Dean.
These two guys have such a wonderful dynamic.
Jerk.
Bitch.
It's the kind of banter you would really expect from brothers who grew up together.
You totally should have been jamming "Eye of the Tiger" right there.
Oh, bite me.
That's really much of the reason why the show has continued for so long.
Both: You think you're being funny, but you're being really, really childish.
Sam Winchester wears makeup.
Sam Winchester cries his way through sex.
Sam Winchester keeps a ruler by the bed, and every morning, when he wakes up Okay, enough! You can have all the monsters and werewolves and ghosts and everything, but if, at the end of the day, you're not selling that core relationship [ Laughing ] Yeah! as these two guys do, then there is no show.
These are awesome.
Thanks.
Good.
Merry Christmas, bro.
[ Creature snarling ] Kripke: I have, like, a list of my favorite episodes of "Supernatural," but the list that I probably think about more is the episodes that I just hated.
[ Creature snarls ] Aaah! Aah! Aaaah! The top of the list is one I wrote called "Wendigo.
" Sam: Check that out.
There were no twists.
There were no turns.
It was just walking through the woods and looking for a monster.
All right, everybody stays together.
And we didn't have the money to pull off a really cool monster.
It was a bizarre kind of a character in a latex costume, and he catches on fire.
Hey! If that sounds like that sucks, it does, and the episode did.
Narrator: "Bugs" was not much better.
Aaaah! Kripke: Bob Singer said Oh, god! "I beg you, don't do this episode.
" Bugs aren't scary.
They're just -- they're just not.
Sam: You know, some beetles do eat meat.
I don't know.
Sounds like a stretch to me.
And I felt like, "We can do it! It's gonna be great!" It wasn't.
Kripke: And then it turned into, like, one laughably terrible scene after another.
Aaah! Narrator: That is obviously fake, but not all the bugs were.
Everybody in the house.
[ Electricity crackles ] They told us, "We're gonna film with these bees.
" We're talking real live bees, by the way.
[ Bees buzzing ] Ackles: Well, my favorite part about it was talking with the bee wrangler.
He's like [ Laughs ] "they're docile bees.
"So as long as you're not aggressive towards them, you should be okay.
" Aah! Aah! As soon as they yell "action," we're freaking out.
We're swatting.
I've got a full-on blowtorch.
They've got bees in their shirts, and they're all getting stung to hell.
And then you looked at the dailies, and you couldn't see the bees, so you saw a lot of people going like this.
Oh! They still had to CGI extra bees in, because they didn't show up on film.
Aah! Man, this sucks out loud.
Yeah, tell me about it.
John: Hey, Sammy.
Narrator: The mythology of "Supernatural" began simply enough.
Aah! The first few seasons of "Supernatural" were Sam and Dean chasing down the demon that killed their mother.
[ Gunshot ] [ Electricity crackles ] That was for our mom, you son of a bitch.
Then, the show took on a whole other layer of complexity.
Sic him, boy.
Narrator: The simplest version of the mythology goes something like this.
Well, I mean, look, Dean goes to hell Sam! Sam goes to hell Narrator: The boys tangled with Lucifer.
Dean goes to Purgatory Pan: Every soul here is a monster.
Sam goes to Purgatory This is adjacent.
there was a celestial holy war Angels.
They're falling.
both boys go to heaven Dean: If this is the Skymall, it sucks.
I mean, where's the triplets and the latex? Come on, a guy has needs.
and Dean became a demon.
And there we are.
You make it sound so easy.
Wishful thinking, but maybe it's just the wind.
Kripke: Where, I think, the mythology of the show really took off was when we introduced Angels.
[ Glass shattering ] Narrator: It took until Season 4, but when angels finally showed up, it was epic.
Kripke: If I do so my damn self, like, that is how you introduce a character.
[ Gunfire ] It was quite an introduction to a show.
Who are you? I'm the one who gripped you tight and raised you from perdition.
That is just some badass badassery right there.
Narrator: Castiel was an instant hit.
Still trying to figure out who that is Yeah, who's the -- And why he's even relevant.
What do you mean? Misha -- lovely.
But Castiel? Never got it.
I've never understood it.
Narrator: Well, he's a hit with fans anyway.
I think it's because it's the cheapest costume you can put together if you're a fan.
In all seriousness, Misha has brought "Supernatural" to a whole nother level, as we say in Texas.
The order comes from high up on the celestial chain of command.
How high? Very.
There's a naivete and an innocence to Cass.
[ Woman moaning ] The pizza man truly loves this babysitter.
Why does he keep slapping her rear? Watching porn? There's always a new incarnation of my character.
Castiel has been crazy.
Castiel has been god.
He who lies in my name shall choke on his own false tongue.
Castiel has been a quasi-cult-leading, drug-induced yoga instructor.
Why not go get washed up for the orgy? You're all so beautiful.
It's one of the things that has made me enjoy working on this show so much.
It's honey.
I collected it myself.
Narrator: And then You're off your rocker.
there's Crowley.
Crowley: Mr.
Pendleton, I presume.
Narrator: Demons have been a part of "Supernatural" from day one The name's Crowley.
but there is only one King.
I figured that Crowley would be an interesting character to play.
I mean, my opening scene is kissing a 70-year-old man at the crossroads.
[ Gasps ] Damn you.
Enjoy the obscene wealth.
See you in 10 years.
Kripke: When we originally wrote Crowley as just King of the crossroad demons, I don't think we ever thought that he would be around, geez, six, seven seasons later.
Dean: You show us yours, and we'll show you ours.
Really, Dean, I'm trying to conduct a professional negotiation here, and you want to talk dangly bits.
If you were to sum up Crowley in one word, it would be "delicious.
" Soto what do I owe the reach-around? He was the demon you loved to hate, but then you realized you sort of loved to love, 'cause him being so horrible, he's actually incredibly enjoyable.
You seem even more constipated than usual.
Maybe get you some colon blow? He says the most awful stuff.
Have you forgotten that that you're the bottom in this relationship? The pathology of name-calling Where's your moose? I don't need you to fight my battles for me, moose.
Moose! Still with the pork chops -- I admire that.
And then one of the greatest moments, which was Dean calling Crowley on the phone, it says, "not moose" Which just made me blow snot out of my nose.
We just shared a foxhole, you and I.
I really enjoyed when Sam was turning Crowley human.
We beat back the Tet offensive, outran the -- the rape of Nanking together! I just thought Mark Sheppard was just brilliant in that performance.
Aaah! Then I got to quote some of my favorite HBO shows.
"Band of Brothers"? "The Pacific"? All those motels, you never once watched HBO, not once? "Girls"? It's really funny.
You're my Marnie, moose.
A-and Hannah -- she just -- she needs to be loved.
And very sad, I think -- sad and touching.
We deserve to be loved.
I deserve to be loved! It's a great job I've got.
I just want to be loved.
He just brings so much je Ne sais quoi to his King of hell.
We love him.
Narrator: "Supernatural" was born as a horror series.
And though it grew to become so much more, it has never lost the ability to scare and shock.
Kripke: One of the creepiest that immediately jumps in mind for me Come on, hold still.
is "The Kids Are Alright.
" [ Gasps ] What's wrong, mommy? There's these demon children and that you have this kind of harried mother.
Her children are endlessly devouring her energy.
[ Snarls ] Scary kids are even more scary.
[ Laughs ] It's okay when they're full-grown, but the little guys are -- that's -- mnh-mnh.
[ Clatter ] "The Benders," I though was scary.
What are they? See for yourself.
Padalecki: What was gonna be a demon or a ghost or a zombie or a ghoul or a vampire or a werewolf [ Metal clanks ] then it turned out to be humans.
[ Grunting ] You want to play games? This is something I probably shouldn't be talking about publicly, but I get really scared by, like, horror movies.
Dean! Ugh! Collins: And when I would watch like two or more episodes of "Supernatural" consecutively [ Roars ] I would have nightmares.
[ Gasps ] Aaaaaaaaah! Man: Cut! It's all good, Tara.
That was great.
Narrator: What nobody could have expected is from time to time, "Supernatural" is one of the best comedies on television.
Uh, maybe we try dialing up that scream, huh? "Hollywood Babylon," which was, like, our first stab at, like, a really funny episode [ Weakly ] Aah! Aaaaaaaah! Now, that's what I'm talking about! Gary Cole plays this studio executive.
Cut! We were just wondering if it could be, you know, a little brighter.
Brad, this is a horror movie.
Who says horror has to be dark? Every single note he gives is word for word a real note we got from the CW.
The rules aren't really landing for me.
If the ghosts are in hell, how do they hear the chanting? I mean [Chuckles] what do they have, super hearing? All he does is give notes I don't understand.
If they were in hell, how could they hear our chanting? They must have super hearing.
[chuckling] Until he's murdered.
[ Crash ] Aaaaaah! You don't remember any of this? Remember what? This -- today.
Like -- like -- like it'shappened before? Narrator: In "Mystery Spot," Sam relives one day over and over Like "Groundhog Day"? Yes, exactly.
Like "Groundhog Day.
" a day that always ends with Dean's death.
[ Gunshot ] Ugh! [ Up-tempo rock 'n' roll plays ] Rise and shine, Sammy! Kripke: All the different ways that we got to kill him was endlessly entertaining to us.
[ Barking ] Somebody need a friend? [ Dog snarling ] Good boy.
Aah! [ Up-tempo rock 'n' roll plays ] Ugh! [ Electricity crackling ] Of those, my single favorite was, he takes a bite of a taco and he says These tacos taste funny to you? [ Up-tempo rock 'n' roll plays ] Out of all the deaths anywhere, the death of taco botulism is, um, is my favorite.
My God, you're a freak.
Ugh! [ Tires screech ] I thought "Yellow Fever" was a good comedic episode for me personally.
Narrator: In "Yellow Fever," Dean becomes infected by a virus that causes fear.
[ Cat yowls ] Aaaaaaaah! Hilarious fear.
That was scary! Ackles: Dean is such this kind of machismo guy's guy.
Puts up the big wall of "I'm not afraid of anything," kind of, and then now he's just a little scared princess.
Man: It's Marie you got to look out for.
She smells fear.
[ Snake hissing ] [ Inhales sharply ] I lost my underpants when that snake came over the couch.
You were, like, at least 3 feet away.
This ain't about Sam Winchester being scared.
It's about Dean.
I'm leaving.
Is that a rabbit's foot? In a show that, on paper, is so serious Man: It's not a luck charm.
It's a curse.
to be able to be irreverent, having fun Oh, geez! I think, has kept us going.
What? I lost my shoe.
[ Scoffs ] Dean: Hey, don't forget the extra onions this time, huh? Dude, I'm the one who's gonna have to ride in the car with your extra onions.
Narrator: It's true that "Supernatural" lives and dies with Sam and Dean Winchester.
Hey, see if they got any pie.
Bring me some pie! But there have been a few other characters Welcome to my blue heaven.
Narrator: That we've also loved over the years.
Awesome.
The king of hell just snapped my girlfriend's neck.
How about you? Narrator: Actually, quite a few.
You've been garthed.
Just tell me who you are.
Narrator: Some weren't even human.
You're a demon.
Don't be such a racist.
I think all our demons have been great.
Come on, Sam! I'm awesome! But if I had to pick a favorite, I would go with the yellow-eyed demon.
That dear old mom of yours, that adorable little sister At one point, he says I'll make certain that they both live long enough to know the chewy taste of their own intestines.
And he nails the line! He just sticks it! Like I say, genius.
Personally, I really like Meg.
Keep talking dirty.
It makes my meatsuit all dewy.
All right, simmer down.
I just thought she was cool.
Collins: What about her was good? She was a good kisser.
What was that? I learned that from the pizza man.
There are so many good demons.
Morning, sunshines.
Sheppard: Abaddon was just extraordinary with the slashed throat and "The devil made me do it.
" I am your king.
About that Aah! It was fantastic to watch.
[ Knock on door ] Man: Got a minute? Dean: You're an angel, aren't you? That's all I need is another one of you guys.
Narrator: When it comes to angels "Supernatural" has an original take.
[ Drill whirring ] We're gonna do angels, but the angels are gonna be dicks.
Quit hurling feces like a howler monkey.
Maybe I should rip out your sticky bits.
Let me guess.
You two mutton heads broke the world, and you want me to sweep up your mess.
Angels? Can't stand angels.
Dreadful.
You sons of bitches jump-started Judgment Day.
Maybe we let it happen.
We didn't start anything.
Other than Cass, who's my favorite angel? Ohh.
I don't know.
I mean, it's really -- it's really tough, 'cause my mind is just overshadowed by how great Cass is.
Sorry if it's a bit chilly.
Most people think I burn hot.
It's actually quite the opposite.
Lucifer was a pretty good angel, you know, if you think about it.
Lucifer, you're my brother and I love you, but you are a great big bag of dicks.
Watch your tone.
Bobby: I'll tell you something else, too.
This is some serious crap you boys stepped in.
Narrator: Perhaps no non-Winchester was as popular as Sam and Dean's surrogate dad -- Bobby Singer.
Are you under the impression that family is supposed to make you feel good? Make you an apple pie, maybe? They're supposed to make you miserable! That's why they're family! Ackles: He was the father figure, he was the patriarch, he was the oracle, he was the Yoda, he was home to these guys.
You want to go hunting? I'll hunt it.
I'll kill anything.
Aww, he's adorable.
[ Both laugh ] His original name was Bobby Manners, but then legal comes back and they say we can't do it for legal reasons.
"Then, all right, I'm just gonna call him Bobby Singer.
" Narrator: The real Bob Singer was not that into it.
I go, "Yeah, I'm really not crazy about this.
" He's like, "what the hell are you doing? "Like, everyone is going to think I named the character after myself.
" With the right name, the right ritual, ain't nothing you can't suss out.
If I'd known that he was gonna go on and be the character that he was, I probably would have put my foot down a little more.
Here's torunning into you guys on the other side.
Onlynot too soon.
All right? [ Engine revs ] Whoo! Listen to her purr.
You ever heard anything so sweet? Narrator: The longest-running supporting player isn't any kind of sentient being.
Sam: You know, if you two want to get a room, just let me know, Dean.
Oh, don't listen to him, baby.
[ Engine revs ] He doesn't understand us.
The iconic '67 Impala -- it was almost something else entirely.
When I came up with "Supernatural," it was really important to me to, like, come up with, like, a really distinctive car.
My neighbor pimps rides for a living.
I'm like, "oh, hey, man, I've been wanting to ask you.
Like, I need, like, a really badass car for this show.
" I'm thinking, "the '68 Mustang.
Like, that'd be cool.
" And, uh, and he's like, "Yeah, yeah, that would be totally cool if you're a [Bleep]" 327 four-barrel, 275 horses.
A little TLC, this thing is cherry.
We have the modern show that everyone associates with a cool car.
[ Tires screech ] Whoo-hoo! And that's awesome.
Hello.
I am Harry Spangler.
And I am Ed Zeddmore.
Ghost, Ghostfacers Narrator: "Supernatural" has never been afraid to turn itself on its head.
Oh! Kripke: We were sort of the kids in the back of the class at the CW, and we were the ones throwing spitballs.
Narrator: It's been reality TV.
A-aren't those [Bleep] from Texas?! Holy [Bleep] It's been a classic monster movie.
Dean: The hero gets the girl, monster gets the gank.
All in all, happy ending.
[ Soft pop music plays ] It's pushed the boundaries of form like few other series ever have.
Kripke: My favorite episode of "Supernatural," period, was "Changing Channels.
" Hey, there, Sam.
What's happening? Oh, nothing.
Um, just the end of the world.
[ Laughter and applause ] Narrator: In "Changing Channels," Sam and Dean are trapped by the Trickster inside a TV universe.
Hijinks ensue.
Oh, Dean.
Son of a bitch.
That send-up we did on "Gray's Anatomy" -- I mean, I watch it today, I laugh.
Doctor.
Ow! Seriously.
What? Seriously? There was the Japanese game show.
[ Buzzer ] Aw! I'm sorry, Sam Winchester.
Sorry? Sorry for what? Ohhh! I mean, who doesn't love, like, just a good hit in the nuts? Whoa! "Nut-cracker"! [ Groaning ] Sam became K.
I.
T.
T.
From "Knight Rider," and Dean is rooting around in his trunk.
Dean? What? That, uh, feels really uncomfortable.
Ow.
Like, that still makes me laugh.
Run! [ Glass shatters ] Narrator: With a penchant for wild experiments Man: Cut! [ Cheers and applause ] Narrator: It was only a matter of time Real good, solid fall.
Way to go.
before the fourth wall came tumbling down.
"Supernatural," tail slate, marker! "The French Mistake" is my all-time favorite episode.
That's a wrap on Jared and Jensen! W-who the hell are -- Jared! Three minutes, okay? Sheer recklessness of, like, what a show is willing to do.
Trish Evian here with Jared Padalecki from TV's "Supernatural.
" Sheppard: So, it's just wonderfully surreal.
I was actually quite jealous that I wasn't in it.
They put freakin' makeup on us.
Those bastards.
Padalecki: I remember, we got a phone call saying, "do you guys mind playing yourselves?" And it was like the record stopped, you know? Don't look at the camera.
What? Look anywhere but the camera.
Cut! [ Bell rings ] Look, you can throw Sam and Dean in any kind of wacky universe you want.
Nice modest digs, Jay-Z.
As long as I'm never breaking out of my character, Dean Yeah.
Then that's fine.
Dude, you have a camel in your backyard.
It's an Alpaca, dumbass.
Ruby? You married fake Ruby? He still has all those portraits of himself in his house.
Oh, yeah.
[ Laughs ] But it was a lot of fun to poke fun at ourselves.
Misha? Oh, wow.
Misha? Jensen? What's up with the names around here? When I got the script, I called the writers, and I said, "Hey, could you make my character as much of a douche as possible?" Man: Action.
Good night, Misha.
Good night, little fella.
I'm probably gonna Tweet this.
"Hola, mishamigos.
" Narrator: Even the producers didn't escape unscathed.
Eric, thanks for coming.
Bob! Of course.
And, I mean, shooting Kripke in the end [chuckles] Hey, extra! Over here! And we were like, "are we insane? Have we gone too far?" [ Western music plays ] And we were like, "that's just too awesome.
We have to do that.
" Collins: To my knowledge, no other show has done anything quite so strange, and I think that that's one of the big reasons that the fans have stuck around, is that it's taken these risks in doing things that other shows aren't doing.
Don't like this universe, Sammy.
We need to get out of this universe.
Yeah, no argument here.
[ Laughing ] Hey Dean, looking good.
Who the hell are you? I'm Dean, too.
Duh.
Maybe this is getting out of hand.
Nah! From the conversations that I've had with a lot of fans, it's a lot more than entertainment.
I deserve to be loved! There is no "Supernatural" without its fans.
We know that.
Creativity of the fans is really astounding to me.
Dean! Collins: It's amazing, the amount of artistry that goes into "Supernatural" fandom.
Hi, y'all.
I'm Bobby.
Fans go to so much effort to make things for us or show us what they feel.
There is a wooden chess set.
All the figures are just painstakingly carved out of wood.
I've probably seen two dozen Impalas that look just like the Impala that the boys have driven.
I'm very wary of people that aren't fans of something.
I mean, it's kind of weird not to freak out over cool things.
I'm about to watch the Season 9 finale of "Supernatural.
" Crowley: Listen to me, Dean Winchester.
Sheppard: There's a wonderful set of videos online of people watching that.
What you're feeling right now is not death.
It's life.
[ Voice breaking ] He's gonna be fine.
Crowley: Open your eyes, Dean.
See what I see.
Feel what I feel.
No! No.
No.
Let's go take a howl at that Moon.
[ Gasps ] No, no, no! [ Gasps ] Oh, my God! Aaaah! Aaah! Aaaaaah! Did you see his eyes?! Sheppard: The show has an impact.
It's kind of humbling in a lot of ways to see the impact that it has.
We put our heart and soul into it, and they've returned the favor.
I'm gonna go cry some more.
You guys are larping, aren't you? Excuse me.
Narrator: Inspired by their passionate fans You're fans.
Fans of what? "Supernatural" has gone where other shows would never dare.
"Supernatural.
" Two guys hunt down ghosts, demons, vampires.
What are their names? Uh Sam and Dean? That's it.
We started to get really meta with the books.
Give me that.
The Chuck Shurley story line -- probably one of my very favorite things about the show.
"Sam and Dean approached the ramshackle house" [ Doorbell rings ] Carver: The idea of this whole set of books written by him and the idea that he could be something else.
Obviously, I'm a god.
You're not a god.
I write things, and then they come to life? Yeah, now I'm definitely a god.
I was in love with the show before that, but I was ready to marry the show after that.
Did you really have to live through the bugs? Yeah.
I amso sorry.
I mean, horror is one thing, but to be forced to live bad writing.
Singer: You know, our meta episodes -- you know, turning it back on ourselves -- really comes from the fans.
You know, they're so invested.
They're gonna want to see it.
See what? See what? Oh, my God.
I love it when they talk at the same time! Singer: It was an easy leap, then, to go to, "well, let's have a convention.
" Becky, what is this? It's awesome! Padalecki: Can't think of another show that could possibly get away with it.
