“It is one of our ‘moments later’ premieres. So Ali will not be super pregnant, she’ll just be a little bit more pregnant than she was last night” - Marlene King
2. But Alison’s pregnancy is a big part of the season
“The pregnancy is a driving force for both Alison and her friends, especially Emily. Emily will have plenty on her plate between Alison and Paige.” - Marlene King
“This is our season of homecomings, and I think full-circle moments. These last 10 episodes really reflect the full-circleness – that’s not a word, but I’m going to create it – of the show and where we hope to go in these final 10 and having that triangle play out felt very appropriate for us as storytellers as we embark upon these last 10 episodes. So Paige is not gone for good, although I did love her riding away on the bicycle.” - Marlene King
3. Is there anything out of the ordinary about the pregnancy?
“Nothing is average in 'Pretty Little Liars,’ so you can take that to fuel your theories. Every scene is a little bit spectacular.” - Marlene King
4. Alison’s classroom flash-forward is still to come
”Yes, we will see that again and we’ll know why we saw it. It’s definitely a part of Alison’s storyline.“ - Marlene King
5. Jenna is not the only one working for A.D.
“Jenna knows A.D. exists and she is anonymously working for A.D. in ways that, we find out moving forward, a few other people on our show are as well.” - Marlene King
6. Spencer’s going on an emotional journey in 7b”
“Mary being revealed as Spencer’s mom was a huge revelation, not just for Spencer, but for the Pretty Little Liars and for the show and for the storyline, so it’s definitely a huge part, the driving engine of Spencer’s emotional story as we come back next April.” - Marlene King
Also - not only is Spencer’s history important but all of the Hasting’s family and Charlotte’s father. "We will definitely follow through on both those storylines. We will find out who Charlotte’s father is and we will find out how Spencer came to be in her entire family dynamic. This storyline also originated from the books. In Sara Shepard’s books, Spencer was adopted, so very early on it gave us the idea for this storyline. We have a lot of fun in this final season circling back to a lot of Sara’s original concepts from the books.“ - Marlene King
“We are trying to get Torrey (Melissa) back. We talk about it all the time, but she’s on 'Chicago Med’ and very unavailable to us … I was so hoping to get her into the finale, but we haven’t figured out how to do it just yet. But I hope she reads this and goes to talk to her producers and helps me.” - Marlene King
7. Wren is back … for multiple episodes “We’ll see him in more than one episode, which is fantastic … When I first sat down to talk to Julian about coming back, he had never had a scene with Ezra, and he and Ian [Harding] are friends in real life, so he’s like, 'Please can I have a scene with Ezra?’, so that was really the originator of the first scene that we’ll see Wren in when he comes back.” - Marlene King
8. There’s more than one wedding coming “There will be more than one wedding" – maybe even more than two weddings.” - Marlene King
“The next 10 [episodes] are emotionally the most power 10 we’ve ever had. The actresses are having so much with how deep they get to go in these final 10 episodes. They’re just having so much fun, their characters are so layered and we really put them through the wringer. I think we continue to be deadly and dangerous and uber-romantic. The catchphrase is it’s 'endgame,’ it’s final game.” - Marlene King
9. Toby’s car crash is just a car crash
“The car crash really is sort of saying no one ever really does leave Rosewood, especially not from this group. It’s really more a metaphor than anything else. I don’t want to talk about where it goes, but people know how I love the character of Toby, so you can read into that what you’ll read into that. He’s one of my favorites on the show, it would be hard to make that phone call to him to tell him his character is being killed off.” - Marlene King
10. They’re open to a movie “We’re very open to finding ways to keep these characters alive and I hope that down the line we find a way to bring all those girls back together again. It’s such a fun world to play in that we’re always keeping those options open. I will say the last episode is really going to be treated like a two-hour movie – it is a two-hour movie. I’m writing it with Maya Goldsmith, who I co-wrote last night’s finale with, and I’ll be directing it, so we are treating that as a two-hour special event movie.” - Marlene King
11. The biggest question is yet to come … “The question hasn’t been asked yet, and it’s going to be when A.D. is revealed … I can’t tell you what it is without giving up who A.D. is.“ - Marlene King
Following the Supernatural panel at Comic-Con, we were able to sit down with stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard and executive producer Jeremy Carver to chat about Demon Dean, Sam’s search for his brother, angel politics and Crowley’s new demon pal. Here’s what we learned about season 10 from the press room:
The state of Demon Dean. Last season we saw Dean as a tortured soul, according to Jensen. He lost his sibling relationship and it became very business-like. He had the guilt of tricking Sam into being possessed by an angel and he had a lot riding on his shoulders last season. For season 10, he wanted to do a contrast for demon dean that was Dean without any of that stuff. That Dean is kind of the same guy but without any care in the world. It’s “scary how little he cares about every and anybody. Even himself. Even the car.” Jensen says there’s nothing funny about it at all. Dean is so carefree and careless, he’s just busy doing whatever he wants to do, whether it’s karaoke or having sex with women. He described a scene he just shot with Dean singing karaoke in a bar and everyone is booing him and he doesn’t care and just sings louder. “A lot of bar fights, a lot of booze, a lot of babes, that’s Demon Dean”. He’s a little bit more smirky, has more swagger to him. It wasn’t anything specific that Jensen was going for, it was just a mental state he was trying to get into.
Sam’s search for Dean. Jared says “we get to see fully human Sam doing things to other full humans that we wouldn’t expect. We certainly will no longer doubt Sam’s loyalty and commitment to [saving] his brother. But we do tease morals and ethics and how far one can go before they become a monster themselves. We tease that more this season than we’ve done in seasons prior.”
Cole and Sam. We know about a new character named Cole who is also searching for Dean when the season begins. Jared said that Cole is someone from Dean’s past and Sam encounters him early on before Dean does. Sam isn’t aware of how Cole knows Dean and vice versa, but Sam is in a position when he knows Dean is a demon and tells Cole that he should stop his pursuit. Jared also revealed that Cole witnessed something back in season 1 when he was ten years old and is now searching for Dean because of it.
What will happen to the brothers? Fans of the Winchester brothers’ relationship might be concerned that Dean being a demon will drive a real wedge between them this year. But Jeremy says “I feel like at the end of last season [the brothers] reached a certain good place. Not necessarily a happy place, but a good place. Dean died and even over the course of the last episode, there was a real maturation in terms of Sam accepting that Dean is walking into death and being OK with that.” That good place they were in carries on into season 10. When the season starts Sam has no idea what happened to his brother. He has some suspicions, but he’s not sure. “Sam is very hot and heavy on the pursuit. I think you’ll see the bothers, when all is said and done….I like it a lot. [It’s] something a little bit different than what we’ve seen in the past couple of years in the way they react in the aftermath. I think there’s a certain amount of healing that has to go on with it. Both acknowledge [it needs to be done] in their relationship and just on a personal level. You’re going to see the boys really, for lack of a better term, go to ground when this is done and saying ‘we need to get better’. Now, of course, the supernatural always follows them. But it’s not the same bombastic ‘you idiot!’ [reaction]. For everything they go through, they actually end up in a good place.”
What state is Castiel in? According to Misha, Castiel is finding himself getting weaker and weaker as we see him again in season 10. He says that it’s not like a human being getting sick, but his powers are very depleted. He is, however, mentally alright. Despite that, he is trying hard to help with the Demon Dean situation, although we’re not sure how helpful he can be while he’s this weak.
The key to Castiel’s grace. “I think, probably, Metatron is key to getting Cas’ grace back and Cas knows that,” Misha said. “We establish that early on in the season. And we also establish that Cas is unwilling to cooperate with Metatron or ask a favor of him. I would not be surprised if later on in the season it turns out that Metatron does end up rectifying the [grace] situation somehow. Because he certainly is, as far as we know, the one who knows how to do that or where Cas’ grace is? [Is it still in existence?] I don’t know. It seems so.”
What’s happening in Heaven? According to Jeremy, the focus in the beginning of the season is much more what’s happening with some angels on earth. The angels in Heaven have largely gotten their act together, Metatron is in jail and angels up there are trying to work things out. In terms of stability in heaven, its more stable than its been in many years.
Is Cas involving himself in heaven’s politics right now? Misha says that he’s “more grounded on earth,” but wouldn’t tell us more. He did, however, say that we will be seeing Hannah with Castiel (she was introduced last year) early on in the season and a few other new angels.
