'Supernatural' And 'Scooby-Doo' Crossover To Be More Adult Than Average For 'Scooby-Doo'
by Jamie Lovett | October 15, 2017
Supernatural and Scooby-Doo will have one of the most unexpected crossovers of the year, but don’t expect this episode of Supernatural to be kid-friendly.
Supernatural co-showrunner Andrew Dabb tells Entertainment Weekly that this crossover, despite being animated, is bringing Scooby gang into the Supernatural world and not the other way around.
“It’s going to be an episode of Supernatural with Scooby-Doo in it,” Dabb said. “It’s not going to be an episode of Scooby-Doo with the guys in it.:
Co-showrunner Robert Singer adds, “It’s more adult than your average episode of Scooby-Doo. Scooby is the marquee this year. The script really works. It’s just going to be great.”
Dabb recalls that doing a fully-animated episode of Supernatural is an idea that had been tossed around the writers’ room for some time.
“We have ideas floating around sometimes for years before we use them, and that’s the benefit of being on a long-running show.”
However, doing animation is complicated, and so the idea was always put off. It wasn’t until Dabb got a call from Jeremy Adams at Warner Bros. that the idea to turn the episode into Scooby-Doo crossover began to take shape.
“He was like, ‘Why haven’t they done a crossover with Scooby-Doo?‘” Dabb says. “That is an excellent question.”
Supernatural getting an early renewal for its thirteenth season meant that the team actually had time to put the animated episode into production.
“The script was finalized and the guys recorded their parts I believe in March of this year and it will air probably about March of next year,” Dabb says.
While fans are sure to be pleased with the upcoming Scooby-Doo crossover, many are still wanting to see the Winchester boys interact with a fellow The CW television series, Arrow. One fan even made a pretty stellar poster for such an event. For his part, Arrow star Stephen Amell doesn’t think a full crossover will ever happen, but he’d really like to have a cameo.
Supernatural airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
The book, Rage of Angels, is a book written by Sidney Sheldon. It is a thriller, stand-alone book with 64 chapters and was published in 1980.
The book follows the story of Jennifer Parker, a lawyer born from Washington, D.C. as she embarks on a journey to bring justice to the world. On the way, she faces different problems that threatened her career, and met different people that changed her life forever. One of these people was Adam Warner, a famous lawyer whom she met because of special circumstances. They fell in love with each other, but their relationship did not last long because of Adam’s skyrocekting reputation as a politician. Being left alone and pregnant with Adam’s baby, she later met Michael Moretti, who was the heir of one of the largest eastern Mafia Families. Michael and Jennifer had a rocky start, him being the cause for Jennifer to almosy lose her status as a lawyer. Over time, their rocky start became a smooth ride as Michael and Jennifer worked thing out. The story ended in an unpredictable way: with Jennifer walking the streets of New York alone.
Prior reading the book, I constructed my own version of the things that might happen in the story based from the title, Rage of Angels. While I was in the process of reading the book however, I found it confusing as to whu the author decided that Rage of Angels would be the best title for the story since the story did not contain any angels. Upon reaching the ending though, I was left speechless as the realization dawned to me, the realization why the author gave that kind of title to the book.
As someone who’s read numerous novels written by different authors with different genres, I can say that this book left an impression on me, both positive and negative. One thing Iook out for in books is the writing style. In Rage of Angels, I can say that the book was well written. The author used words that were easy to understand and the court scenes were written with much detail, you’d think that the author once worked in the court room himself. The characters written showed unique personalities and characteristics, from Robert Di Silva’s sharp kind to Joshua Parker’s charm. You would learn to love, hate, and respect his characters as you continue on reading the story. I liked how the author showed Jennifer as someone who is headstrong and independent; someone who wouldn’t back down from a fight. It was especially important since the setting of the story happened during the time when women were underappreciated by society. I also noted how the author euphemized the bed scenes in the story. The plot twists were unpredictable and I found the ending bittersweet, which, in my case, is not a bad thing.
The book had promising points, but there were disappointments as well. One thing I noticed is that Ken Bailey, who was supposed to be Jennifer’s best friend, was not shown enough appreciation in the story. He was one of my favorite characters. His loyalty and care for Jennifer was one of the things I liked about him, and the author did not even put him in the ending. The ending was depressing and I felt that Jennifer’s character as a strong woman was thrown down the drain because of it. I also did not like Jennifer’s ideals when it comes to love. The author showed her as someone who is independent and smart, but in the story Jennifer ended up being like her mother in the love department, something she swore she wouldn’t do. I did not get what it was the author tried to get across, as one of the readers. In the end, she became one of those people that succumbed to the darkness, the darkness the angels wanted to drive away. And that disappointed me.
To conclude, I found the novel an interesting read. With all the court room scenes and Jennifer’s efforts and skills during trials, it made me want to be a lawyer myself. But the story’s progressio towards the ending was sad and depressing, maing me think twice about reading Jennifer Parker’s life again soon.
I always wonder about raindrops. I wonder about how they're always falling down, tripping over their own feet, breaking their legs and forgetting their parachutes as they tumble right out of the sky toward an uncertain end. It's like someone is emptying their pockets over the earth and doesn't seem to care where the contents fall, doesn't seem to care that the raindrops burst when they hit the ground, that they shatter when they fall to the floor, that people curse the days the drops dare to tap on their doors.
The life I know now is the only one that matters. The suffocation, the luxury, the sleepless nights, and the dead bodies. I’ve always been taught to focus on power and pain, gaining and inflicting.
I grieve nothing.
I take everything.
It’s the only way I know how to live in this battered body.
My clothes are so wet I feel like I've pissed my pants.
things I'm looking forward to in the new Shatter Me books
ok well obviously Warner and Juliette fking these murder babies will literally be the death of me
more adorable Warner x James moments with James putting him on the spot in front of everybody
Kenji Kishimoto just in general
Seeing more of the Shatter Me world- we don’t really get to visit any of the Reestablishment out of our little sector. How are the other sectors run?? Are all the regents like Warner? Like his dad? Do they know what’s happening in 45??
Juliette kicking ass
Juliette and Warner kicking ass together #powercouple
Speaking of asses, Adam being less of one (hopefully)
Mayb eventually a Warner x Adam brotp??? I don’t rly mind if it happens or doesn’t happen but Adam needs to get over himself bc how cool would it be for Warner to have a family that doesn’t suck for once
I really would love a Kenji x Warner training fight the whole “I’ll gladly kick your ass if Juliette isn’t interested” thing needs to be canon
Juliette probably learning more about her powers and doing more awesome things (maybe she can fly who even knows at this point Juliette can do whatever she wants she can punch me in the face and I’d say thank you)
OH ALSO THE WARNER POV HOW DID I GET THIS FAR WITHOUT MENTIONING THAT
seriously we haven’t had a Warner pov since the beginning of unravel me so what we he thinking all throughout ignite me?? when all the craziest shit was happening? ? i need Answers
I m ean can u BeliEve we’ll be seei ng how mych he just lov s Julie tte??? from his acTUAL vIEWPOint

If you liked Divergent, The Hunger Games, The giver, this kind of books, you will love Shatter Me! 😊
The Dynamic between Kylo & Rey and where it can go: A parallel analysis with the Shatter Me trilogy
This meta is a collaboration between my friend @sillylovesongs17 and me.
We decided to do this after I told her to read the books because I didn’t want
to scream alone about this series. We think this is a wonderful example of what
a relationship between Kylo and Rey should look like in the next movies and we
hope you have fun reading this meta.
WARNING: There will be
spoilers about Shatter Me and Star Wars.
Shatter Me is a book series written by Tahereh Mafi. Followed by Unravel
Me and Ignite Me, Shatter Me tells the story of Juliette Ferrars, a girl that
can kill with a single touch. After being locked up for 264 days, she gains a
cellmate, a boy she thought she would never see again as the Reestablishment
(the new government in power) has plans for her, Juliette must make a choice:
be a weapon or be a warrior.
In this meta we will discuss the possibilities for Kylo and Rey’s
relationship and where they might end up at the end of the sequel trilogy
comparing them to the very similar relationship of Juliette and Warner in the
Shatter Me trilogy.
We are aware that these stories are not the same but both dynamics are
similar, sharing a lot of common traits so we’ll only analyze these characters
and their dynamic only.
In the surface, Rey and Juliette share little in common. Rey starts of
as a very capable scavenger, she can hold her own against enemies because she
had a lot of time to learn how to defend herself in Jakku. In contrast,
Juliette starts as a fragile girl, she’s locked in a cell for quite some time
because of her lethal abilities and is on the verge of losing her mind.
But they do share similarities. Both girls were born with powerful gifts:
Rey is force sensitive and Juliette has a lethal touch. She was abandoned by
her parents because of her abilities and if the leaks about Ep. VIII are
correct Rey’s parents did the same to her making both wish for belonging.
Rey and Juliette are destined for great things and one more thing they
share is their uncommon relationship with the antagonist.
Kylo Ren and Warner share very similar traits, both in personality and
their actions. Aaron Warner is the leader of Sector 45, viewed as a cruel
sociopath by his soldiers and enemies he hides behind this mask not allowing
anyone to see the real him until he meets Juliette.
With Kylo we have the same pattern, his descent into darkness is only
stopped when he meets Rey. He senses that she’s special and their connection
only grows after their first interaction.
Both Kylo and Warner are trying to please their leaders who abused them mentally
and, in Warner’s case, also physically. In Star Wars, the Leader is Snoke,
someone that according to the book “Aftermath: Empire’s End” has been watching
and manipulating Kylo since before he was even born.
In Shatter Me, the Leader is Anderson, Warner’s father who treats him
like shit. He taught Warner to be merciless and cruel hoping that would destroy
the gentle nature of his son.
Warner and Kylo are both murderers, they don’t deny it but find no
pleasure in harming someone. They are passionate and intense characters with a
great sense of style and beautiful hair (sorry).
point is, Shatter Me is a trilogy, divided exactly like the Star Wars movies.
So, we will show how their dynamics are similar and with luck Mafi’s books will
illuminate us, the reylos.
Shatter Me and The Force Awakens:
The book starts with Juliette in prison after years of passing through countless
reformatories and mental institutions, her last home is now a solitary cell
where she’s been locked for 264 days without no one to talk to but herself.
The only thing that keeps her from losing her mind entirely is the bird
she dreams about it:
“Instead, I ignore the desperation sticking my fingers
together and watch for the bird I’ve only seen in my dreams.”
“I’ve dreamt about the same bird flying
through the same sky for exactly 10 years. White with streaks of gold like a
crown atop its head.
It’s the only dream I have that gives me peace.” – Shatter Me. Chapter 6. Pg. 21.
changes when a boy joins her. Adam is someone from her past but he appears to
no longer remember her. They talk sometimes but never touch until she discovers
that Adam works for the Reestablishment and he was only there to evaluate her.
to the headquarters of Sector 45 and is immediately interrogated by Warner. His
looks and youth weren’t what she was expecting it:
“I’m immediately struck by his youth. He
can’t be much older than me.
It’s obvious he’s in charge of something,
though I have no idea what. His skin is flawless, unblemished, his jawline
sharp and strong. His eyes are
the palest shade of emerald I’ve ever
He’s beautiful.” – Shatter Me. Chapter 8. Pg. 25.
This is a great parallel with Rey and Kylo’s first meeting. When Kylo
removes his mask, Rey is expecting a disfigured almost robotic person and his
looks caught her off guard:
“She just stared at him in silence.
In itself the narrow face that looked back at
her was not remarkable. It was almost sensitive. If not for the intensity of
his gaze, Ren could have passed for someone she might have met on the dusty
streets of Niima Outpost. But there was—that gaze. That, and what lay simmering
behind it.” - TFA Novelization, Chapter
“That happens when
you’re being hunted by a creature in a mask.
Kylo Ren stops,
considers her… then reaches up, unlatches
and REMOVES HIS MASK.
Rey reacts, stunned. It takes a moment
before she regains her
own mask of defiance.” – TFA Script.
The majority of the
book is Warner trying to unlock Juliette’s power while she falls in love for
Adam who has feelings for her. She discovers that he can, somehow, touch her
and they start a relationship without Warner knowing about it. He tries to test
her powers and pushes her to her limits using not so good ways to do it but it
works with Juliette discovering her super force.
On TFA we see Kylo trying to get
inside Rey’s mind. This works like a test, and she discovers she is Force
Sensitive. Then Kylo Ren and Rey also create a
bond (a deep connection, a link…). For Warner and Juliette this came with him
touching her without being killed.
Juliette escapes with Adam leaving
Warner in all his anger and confusion. Adam is Juliette’s love interest
throughout the first book and since Rey doesn’t have a love interest in TFA there
isn’t much to compare. Finn, who is Rey’s companion in the movie is more like
Kenji Kishimoto, Julliette’s best friend.
While Kylo’s feelings for Rey aren’t
explicitly stated, Warner’s feelings towards Juliette are very clear throughout
the first book and even Adam notices that he treats her differently but all she
feels for him is hatred and disgust:
“So much passion.” He laughs again. He
looks so calm, so genuinely amused. He stares at me with eyes softer than I
ever expected them to be.
I turn away.” - Shatter
Me. Chapter 14.
Rey are girls that never had someone who cared for them so the thought of
losing Adam and Finn is horrible to them. Warner and Kylo both commit an act of
violence against them making their hatred only to solidify. The word “Monster”
is used by them to describe Kylo and Warner:
monster.” My voice is too even, my body filled with a sudden rage. “Why don’t
you just kill me?” - Shatter Me, Chapter 9.
“Ren held his lightsaber, poised to strike. “I
could kill you right now. But there is another way.” Breathing hard, Rey
looked up in disgust at the man looming above her. “You’re a
monster.” – TFA Novelization.
Even with their feelings made clear both men still want these powerful
women by their side:
“You and I, Juliette—together? We could be
I will not look at him though I feel his
gaze touching every inch of my body. “No, thank you.”
We’re in the elevator. The world is
whooshing past us and the walls of glass make us a spectacle to every person on
every floor. There are no secrets in this building.
He touches my elbow and I pull away. “You
might reconsider,” he says softly. - Shatter
Me. Chapter 13.
“No. You need a teacher.” He was beseeching and insistent all
at once. “I can show you the ways of the Force.” – TFA Novelization.
At the end, they both fight. Who
wins? Yes, the girls. Rey uses the Force and kicks Kylo’s ass. Juliette uses
the attraction that Warner feels for her and shoots him. Then both women
runaway with their friends and find their resistance. The men are hurt, but
Me and The Last Jedi:
Finding Common Ground
Since The Last Jedi isn’t out yet we
will analyze the events of Unravel Me and compare to what may happen in TLJ
based in what we know so far.
After scaping from Warner, Juliette and
Adam are brought to the resistance by Kenji, their friend. There she meets
Castle, a mentor for her, that wants her to train and learn more about her
abilities but it’s hard for her. She can’t concentrate in her training and
everything seems out of place. As her relationship with Adam starts to crumble,
her dreams come back and she doesn’t understand:
“The dreams are back.
They’d left me for a while, shortly after I’d been
freshly imprisoned on base with Warner. I thought I’d lost the bird, the white
bird, the bird with streaks of gold like a crown atop its head.
(…) It was my one piece of hope in the bitter darkness
of the asylum, just until I met its twin tattooed on Adam’s chest.
(..) I thought it was a signal, a message telling me I
was finally safe. That I’d flown away and finally found peace, sanctuary.
I didn’t expect to see the bird again.
I’ve had the same dream every night for the past week,
and all 7 mornings I’ve woken up shaking, shuddering into the earthy, icy air,
struggling to steady the bleating in my chest.
Struggling to understand what this means.” – Unravel Me. Chapter 4. Pg. 28.
The belonging she thought she had
found with Adam and Castle’s resistance isn’t real, she still feels incomplete
like something is missing.
The same can be said that this might
happen with Rey. After her forceback, Maz tells her that the belonging she
seeks it’s not behind, in the past, but ahead in her future. Rey thinks it’s
about Luke and becoming a Jedi but she might find out that the belonging she
wants rests with another person.
Rian Johnson compared TLJ to Letter
Never Sent regarding how the story shifts in the middle surprising the
audience. We know that Rey and Kylo don’t have the basic hero/villain dynamic
and this could be one of the surprising elements. Showcasing their bond and the
connection they feel to each other but for this to happen they need to spend
In Unravel Me, Juliette’s feelings
about Warner starts to change when she sees him commit an act of kindness:
“And I wish I’d never
Because something inside
of my heart is ripping apart and it feels like fear, it tastes like panic and
anxiety and desperation and I don’t know how to understand the image in front
of me. I don’t want to see Warner like this. I don’t want to think of him as
anything other than a monster.” – Unravel me. Chapter 20. Pg. 101.
Her doubts about him only increases
when she meets him again, this time with his father Anderson, the Leader of the
“And I see the difference in him now. I see
He’s making no effort to hide his
emotions from me.” – Unravel Me. Chapter
35. Pg. 154.
Anderson knows about his son’s feelings
towards Juliette and plans to kill her in front of him to teach him a lesson:
“The mistake”, he says, almost announcing it now,
“that he always makes, time and time again – allowing his emotions to get in
the way of his duty – it’s pathetic”, he says, spitting in Warner’s direction.
“Which is why as much as I’d like to let you live, my dear, I’m afraid you’re
too much of a distraction in his life. I cannot allow him to protect a person
who has attempted to kill him” – Unravel
Me. Chapter 35. Pg. 157.
Just as we suspected that this was
what Snoke wanted to do with Rey, to kill her in front of Kylo because he felt
compassion for her:
“Kylo Ren. It appears that a reminder is in order. So, I will show
you the dark side. Bring the girl to me.” – TFA Novelization.
Juliette wins over Anderson and Warner is
taken as hostage by their resistance. Once there, Castle states that Juliette
must interrogate Warner because he’ll only talk to her.
They spent time together and the connection
she feels with Warner is stronger than everything she has ever felt:
“Because there’s something about him – there’s always
been something about him that’s intrigued me and I don’t understand it. I wish
I could ignore it but I can’t.” –
Unravel Me. Chapter 50. Pg. 203.
“But I know that I don’t hate you anymore. I’ve
tried,” I say, “I’ve tried so hard. Because you’ve done so many terrible,
terrible things. To innocent people. To me. But I know too much about you now.
I’ve seen too much. You’re too human.” –
Unravel Me. Chapter 50. Pg. 207.
start a strange relationship, Warner thinks he knows her, knows what she feels
and she is confused about Warner, not wanting to believe that he can be more
than a monster. She likes to spend time with him and she hates herself for
She’s the only person to
who Warner is kind. He sees her as his equal and explains why he wanted her by
“He looks at me. Really, really looks at me.
“You’re going to go on to do incredible things,” he
says. I’ve always known that. I think I just wanted to be a part of it.” – Unravel Me. Chapter 52. Pg. 218.
When Warner discovers that
he has abilities, Castle offers him a place there, in their resistance but
Warner refuses. That’s not who he is, he can’t change for a matter of days and
forget everything he’s done. He knows nothing is that easy because he can sense
other people’s feelings, he can feel the hate they have for him and that’s why
he can’t stay:
“Feel what?” I whisper.
“What people think of me.”
“Their feelings – their energy – it’s – I don’t know
what it is,” he says, frustrated, stumbling backward, shaking his head. “I’ve
always been able to tell. I know how everyone hates me. I know how little my
father cares for me. I know the agony of my mother’s heart. I know that you’re
not like everyone else.” His voice catches. “I know you’re telling the truth
when you say you don’t hate me. That you want to and you can’t. Because there’s
no ill will in your heart, not toward me, and if there was I would know.” – Unravel Me. Chapter 54. Pg. 227.
Their feelings for one
another are so strong that they almost have sex. Warner wants Juliette to go
with him, they fight and he escapes alone.
Now back to TLJ, we know
that Kylo and Rey will spend some time together on Ahch-To. According to some
leaks, Kylo will go after Rey maybe finding her by
their “mysterious connection”. He will be stuck on the island with Rey and
Luke. Their relationship will evolve (without the “almost have sex”
thing, of course), and they will get out of Ahch-To, so who knows?
We only know for certain that Kylo and Rey
need to spend time together, their understanding of one another in TLJ is
crucial to their future.
Another thing that we will have to
wait and see is the answer about Rey’s family. Mafi’s trilogy could give us a
way. Juliette was abandoned by her family and we don’t meet them. She is no
one, her parents aren’t important to the story only Juliette and the discovery
of her abilities are. It’s a good contrast to Warner’s background,
he is like royalty, son of the Reestablishment’s Supreme Leader.
A broken young man that meets a strange powerful girl with who he shares
a connection. Sounds like something we know?
At the end of book two, everything goes to shit. Their resistance seems
to be over and Juliette and Warner seems to be the only survivors making their
mission to destroy Anderson.
Based on leaks, it seems that Luke and Rey get off the island and go
their separate ways. Luke goes after Snoke while Rey goes after Kylo. If their
connection is truly explained and deepened in this movie maybe Rey asks his
help to defeat Snoke (we can only hope).
Me and Episode IX: A forged Alliance?
This segment is basically our hopes
and dreams for Rey and Kylo’s relationship since we have no clue to what will
happen in Episode IX.
Ignite me sums up everything that me
and Lu want for reylo. Obviously, we don’t know anything about the last movie
but we want to show you what happens in the last book of the Shatter Me
trilogy. Oh, and dream a little.
is now a strong woman who wants to make things better for the people. She
decides to kill Anderson and stop the Reestablishment. Warner doesn’t change so
much, he still cold, quiet, with a beautiful hair and only cares about
Juliette, the love of his life.
Juliette and Warner spend the whole
book together. He’s now the only one she can trust and their bond only grows as
the trust is built between them. Warner believes in her and see her as an equal something that Juliette never had before:
“I like the way I feel about myself when I’m with him,” I say quietly.
“Warner thinks I’m strong and smart and capable and he actually values my
opinion. He makes me feel like his equal – like I can accomplish just as much
as he can, and more. And if I do something incredible, he’s not even surprised.
He expects it. He doesn’t treat me like I’m some fragile little girl who needs
to be protected all the time.” – Ignite
Me. Chapter 25. Pg. 105.
In return, Juliette sees the real
Warner, someone he tried to hide for so long that he almost lost sight of
“You allow the world to think you’re
a heartless murderer,” I tell him. “And you’re not.” – Ignite Me. Chapter 4.
He tells everything to Juliette about
his sick mother, why he freed her in the beginning, about the men he killed and
everything he did for her. The girl now understands that he is a soldier and
not a monster. Juliette finally understands him completely and she accepts who
he is, the good and the bad parts of him:
“I’m not trying to fix you; I don’t think you need to be fixed. I’m not
trying to turn you into someone else. I only want you to be who you really are.
Because I think I know the real you. I think I’ve seen him.” – Ignite Me. Chapter 29. Pg. 120.
If Kylo and Rey spent so much time
together as did Warner and Juliette this would be the kind of development that
we could see happening between them. They aren’t black and white characters, both
Rey and Kylo have darkness in them and the acceptance of each other’s darkness
(and light) is crucial to bring balance to them and The Force.
Juliette finally understands what her
dreams meant and (shocker) this is the belonging she looked for:
“Warner. A white bird with streaks of gold like a crown atop its head. A fair-skinned boy with gold hair, the leader of Sector 45. It was always him. All along.” –
Ignite Me. Chapter 31. Pg. 124.
Juliette only acknowledges that her
feelings for him are indeed romantic in the last chapters of the book. That is
something that we would like if it happened to Rey and Kylo at the end of the
“What – ‘’
Warner is blinking fast. His voice is fragile, uneven. “What are you saying?”
“I love you,”
I whisper. “I love you exactly as you are.” – Ignite Me. Chapter 55. Pg. 200.
Also in this book, Warner loses his
mother and Juliette is the only one there to comfort him. The only thing we
know about Episode IX is that Leia is not there but this will certainly affect
ever seen him look like a child before. Never, not once, not in all the time
I’ve known him. But right now, he looks just like a little boy. Scared.
Vulnerable. All alone.
“His eyes are
red-rimmed and a startling, striking shade of green, shining with barely
restrained emotion. His face is the picture of so much pain.
I almost can’t
breathe.” – Ignite Me. Chapter 50. Pg.
Now our favorite part is obviously
Juliette and Warner working together. They make an alliance and built their own
resistance gathering the survivors of the last battle along with Juliette’s
friends to fight against the Reestablishment.
I mean, don’t we all want to see Kylo
and Rey kicking Snoke’s ass (or Hux, sorry I’m not sorry at all), using the
force bond and being amazing together?
This was basically it. We wanted to
show how the writer wrote this very similar dynamic respecting the characters
and their development making them a couple you want to root for. We expect
reylo to be subtler than a YA book since their audience is PG but if TLJ
follows just a bit of this same path we don’t need to be worried about Episode
IX at all.
