So at Phoenix Con this last weekend there was a blink and you’ll miss it exchange that got very little tweet coverage or videos posted. But it made me pause and go… wait, what? Did he really just say that?
At the Jensen/Jared afternoon panel, they are asked which character they think is most important to the plot. Jared takes the opportunity (as he does) to talk about how he had the most fun in season four (cause he met Gen) and then expands on demonblood!Sam a little more:
Jared: “I loved that… (turns to Jensen) and I think you’re kind of going through it this year with the Mark of Cain… (turns back to audience) it’s really funny to play a character that’s kind of … super powerful all of the sudden … you kind of start to feel it like, yeah, this is cool”
Jensen: “Yeah, but I don’t have some hot chick to make out with all the time”
Jared: “That’s true” (turning to Jensen) “you have Castiel”
crowd commences screaming, Jensen laughs, Jared is grinning madly
This feels… different. Like something has shifted. Cause for so long Jensen has had a “I don’t talk about Destiel” wall up and questions about it with him are very awkward (honestly still are, per that morning in the Gold panel) and I don’t think we’ve EVER seen Jared tease him on stage about Destiel that directly. Seriously, the two of them know which questions are hard for the other to answer, and they have each other’s backs and cover for each other when it’s needed. They take care of each other on stage. So for Jared to feel like it was ok for him to blatantly suggest Dean/Cas make-out sessions? I mean… I know some of you don’t watch con videos, but for those that do - doesn’t this feel like something that JUST DOESN’T HAPPEN? So… what has changed?
squints in the direction of of the next 5 episodes they know about that we don’t yet
