Mc Donalds anon. At this point I could make it an account name. Ok so you're saying That Misha is friends with the boss? Or that Singer likes Misha despite Misha running his mouth with no filter in the past? Or that Singer sees that Misha brings in money and/or interest in the show (as a secondary character yes, but quite a beloved one)? I put my money on answer three? Am I getting the code right, damnit i feel slow. As an aside, I don't always agree with u but your blog is so damn REFRESHING
Don’t feel bad feeling slow because I’m not helping. I’m avoiding saying certain stuff but *pinch nose* you’re going to make me say it.
The official statement on why they kept Misha on is to give Jensen and Jared time off from their heavy filming schedule. Notice, though, it’s to give both Jensen and Jared off at the same time. If Jared wants time off then they could schedule Jensen and Misha scenes, or if Jensen wants time off then they could film Jared and Misha scenes. But no, Jensen and Jared need to have their time off together at the same time. Mmmmokay say I still believe the official statement, then why not further develop Cas’s character with new characters that fans have responded very well to, like Benny, Charlie, and Gadreel? Why do they keep introducing and killing off interesting new characters while Cas is just kind of….there? Can you honestly tell me that you’ve noticed a downtick of Sam and Dean scenes? Sure there were episodes that are side-character centric, but all shows do this; they let supporting characters have their spotlight episode because creators/writers gets paid more when their character are used. Claire Novak was Carver’s creation from season 4 so he used her for 3 episodes in season 10 and gets paid more.
Needless to say I don’t buy their official statement.
I’m taking futher speculation under the cut because this could get long.
