Supernatural: Lucifer is Busting Out All Over

I’m beginning to understand why creator Eric Kripke has repeatedly said he’d like to end Supernatural after its fifth season. The first episode of season 4 introduced God and angels into the show’s mythology, while last night’s installment began setting up a showdown between the Winchesters and Lucifer himself. Lilith’s quest to break the 66 seals sounds like it’d take about two seasons, and if Sam and Dean successfully thwart her and stop Satan from walking the Earth, where else could the series possibly go? Once you’ve beaten back Lucifer and the armies of Hell, everything else seems like small potatoes. I don’t feel it’s a bad thing that Kripke seems to be setting the series up for its eventual end. I’m glad he’s thinking ahead and pulling the villain to top all villains out of his hat. Focusing on a specific endgame helped make shows like Lost and Battlestar Galactica better than ever, and I think Supernatural is on a similar path. As much as I loved the overarching stories of the first three seasons, none grabbed me as instantly as this Heaven vs. Hell setup. Season 4 of Supernatural is building to something truly epic, with the apocalypse nipping at the Winchesters’ heels. It feels like all hell is about to break loose once again. Aside from the Lucifer bombshell, one of the highlights of last night’s episode was the return of Meg, Henricksen and Ronald. Not only did these characters act as a gut-wrenching reminder of the innocent people the Winchesters failed to save, but their return was like an extra treat for loyal Supernatural fans. As BuddyTV reader N0Nightowl pointed out, the episode may have been more powerful had Bobby’s wife been the one to haunt him. It’s possible the actress wasn’t available, so it’s certainly a forgivable gripe. Check out the rest at the...

Is Supernatural’s Heavenly Newcomer a Real Devil?

The CW’s Supernatural uncorked a helluva reveal at the end of last week’s season premiere, when Dean learned that he had been “pulled out of perdition” by no less than an angel named Castiel. But is this suave savior to be believed? TVGuide.com invited series newcomer Misha Collins to “wing it” in this Q&A. Plus: Look for a juicy piece of casting scoop! (Supernatural airs Thursdays at 9 pm/ET.) – Matt Mitovich TVGuide.com: I see a lot of readers going, “Where have I seen this guy before?” What’s the best possible answer to that? Misha Collins: Um, Trader Joe’s? TVGuide.com: Or 24. Collins: 24, probably, is the most likely place for people to recognize me from. I played Dennis Hopper’s son. TVGuide.com: That was Season 1. You must’ve been a puppy back then. Collins: I was, I was a young lad. But I was shaving. TVGuide.com: What did the Supernatural producers tell you about the role when you first auditioned? Collins: Well, the material I auditioned with was for a demon, so I went in as a bad, snarky little demon. Eric Kripke said, “Great job, but actually you’re an angel. We’re just trying to keep it under wraps.” He gave me a couple pointers on what he was looking for, I did another take, and I got the part. TVGuide.com: Are Jared and Jensen happy to have another guy on the show? Collins: You know, if Jared and Jensen are not happy to have another guy on the show, they hide it very well. They seem very warm and welcoming and very cool. They both have great senses of humor. They’re both witty and sarcastic, and that’s fun to work with. TVGuide.com: Any initiation rituals? Collins: No hazing, and no initiation rituals. TVGuide.com: Was your character’s entrance as cool as you had hoped, once you saw it on...

Meet SUPERNATURAL’s Newest Angel Misha Collins

If there is any truth to the old adage that you only get one chance to make a good first impression. Consider Misha Collins’ mission accomplished. As Castiel, an Angel sent down from above to aid Sam and Dean in their fight against evil, Misha Collins managed to the impossible. Sweep the fiercely protective Winchester Fangirls off their feet. Which is exactly what I congratulated him on when I had the opportunity to chat with the actor over the phone yesterday. I believe congratulations are in order. Your appearance on Thursday’s SUPERNATURAL season premiere left quite the impression on the fandom. Misha Collins: Really? I thought this was par for the course. Far from it. [Just ask Katie Cassidy and Lauren Cohan] Well that’s very nice to hear. And I guess it makes it a little nicer knowing that fans aren’t in love with everyone who appears on the show. Have you taken the time to Google yourself and see for what the fan reaction has been like? Friends have emailed me links to things but I haven’t really sat down and found the time. But having done a few interviews today, the reaction has seemed positive. How did you find your way onto SUPERNATURAL? Originally I auditioned for the role of a demon. I thought I did a great demon, really snarky and nasty. But when I finished reading Eric Kripke [SUPERNATURAL showrunner] said, “Wait, we have somewhat of an enthusiastic fan-base and we’re trying to keep it a secret that we’re introducing an angel on the show. So you’re not a demon, you’re an angel. Can you do it again with more of a quality of innocence and curiosity about how it is these humans behave.” And it was that naivete about human beings in general that really informed how I play Castiel. How familiar were you...

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on Supernatural

*Spoilers Past The Jump* Question: You’ve been rockin’ the Supernatural scoop lately, to which I have one thing to say: Keep it comin’! — Mandy Ausiello: I’ve been devoting so much valuable AA real estate to the Brothers Winchester these past few weeks that I’m inclined to take at least partial credit for the show’s record-breaking season premiere-ratings last week. Eh, screw that, I’m taking all the credit. And don’t be surprised if this next Supebit drives the show’s Nielsens even higher: In episode 5, Dean punches Sam not once, but twice. And not by accident! Question: I’ll be your BFF if you give me some Supernatural scoop! — Justin Ausiello: I’ll let you know if an opening comes up in my friends rotation. Till then, you’ll probably be satisfied to know that the show is casting two new recurring roles: One’s a pretty ass kicker who hears voices and seems likely to become a love interest for one of the Winchester boys; the other’s a he-demon whose serene demeanor belies a mile-wide sadistic streak. He’s a little less likely to become a love interest for one of the Winchester boys. Just a...
