"Jared expressed surprise at how fast the pregnancy had moved along, and he was regretful that he and Gen had not photodocumented it, so they had their wedding photographer take some pictures on the spur of the moment around Christmas. He also said both of them, at someone’s suggestion, had written letters to the baby. He wanted to write, “I just want you to be happy…and a Dallas Cowboys quarterback and be happy."


Fan: How do you make certain decisions for Dean, like the scene where Cas dies and you took the trenchcoat out of the lake and folded it, that wasn’t scripted?

Jensen: It was not. A lot of those are just character instinctual things I’ve been playing Dean so long I feel like I have a pretty good handle on how he would react to a situation – his relationship with Cas was very deep, there was a deep friendship there, and I discussed it with Guy Bee, and said if he ever comes back, he’s gonna need the trench coat. And there was just something like, almost a closure, I was just folding it up, like a flag. So I pulled the coat out, and Guy was like “Do that again.” I wanted to take care of it, it belonged to somebody who meant a lot to Dean. So it was a happy accident. A lot is written, it’s a very well written show, but it’s nice when they happen.
