Just wanna ask, while having more than 1-2 year future for spn, why there is a sudden real life absence of j2 and overflowing genneel and het pics and reel life absence of sam dean scenes and more side characters ?
Hello, dear anon!
That is a broad question! Hmm, let’s think about it for a while, shall we? Obviously I don’t know anything for certain, so please treat everything I say as speculation.
March is said to be a very special month for the J’s, isn’t that right? Perhaps an anniversary of some kind. This latest episode (19) was filmed in the beginning of March (SuperWiki guesses between 1st and 8th). While trying to piece together a timeline, it became apparent that the J’s were off between 3rd and 6th of March, which would explain why the episode was so light on the brothers.
I remember reading that the J’s now work 3 days a week, but I really can’t recall the source or the exact time when this was said. As for the reason for this lighter working schedule, I can only guess. There were a couple of things to consider at that time - Jared’s increased anxiety and the upcoming baby (whose birth granted Jared 6 days off of filming according to Jim Michaels).
March was a rather grim month for us believers, but the J’s still didn’t totally manage to hide - there was that date night on the 8th! And let’s not forget the glory that was the date week of early April. They aren’t entirely hidden, as they so beautifully proved to us. ;)
My guess at the reason behind the fortified walls of their closet is that Jared’s beard is trying to launch a career for herself. I’m guessing that by appearing separate, they’re not drawing the attention away from this lifestyle blog attempt of G’s and neither are they creating suspicions in the general / het fan field by hanging out “too much” while they have new-born infants at home.
As for the beards hanging out, uhhh. I have very few thoughts on that. Like so many others, I don’t believe they’re besties. They still probably get along alright, seeing as how they’re pictured together every now and then. I sign the theory that they’re in competition with each other when it comes to fandom attention (posting in succession of each other, anyone?) but these recent pictures of them together could be about strengthening the commune idea.
The hiatus has started and it’s a good time to remind the fans how they’re all such a big, happy family. You know, just in case someone see the J’s together, there’s always that “Our wives are hanging out right now” excuse to fall back on - and historic evidence of such occurances to put some weight on the claim. ;)
Ahh, sorry, I sound cynical! Excuse me for the long ramble. I hope I managed to answer your questions in the process! I hope you have a very lovely weekend ahead of you, sweet anon. Thank you for messaging me!
