This might be more fever dream talking, but I’m making my way through the various SDCC interviews (which I’ve honestly not done before, but I feel like I should do my homework) and here’s something interesting:
Dabb is talking about alternate worlds. Plural.
On the surface that doesn’t seem
all that exciting, but then I’m just thinking about what this show
is and how it tends to tell stories… and there’s no way we visit an AU
without purpose. Dabb confirms that SPN is a character driven show
(“Sam, Dean, and Castiel”), so, really: the only reason to visit
an AU is to show the characters something about themselves. Think of
the AUs we’ve encountered so far, like The End or The French
And after comparing the years of SPN to making a pizza in the most bizarre way possible, Jared talks
about the “meta episode where we play ourselves,” and how the
fans loved it, and how they could do more of that, and then came to
the conclusion that the show has now figured out “who it is.”
Anyone else thinking
we could be staring down the barrel of the most meta season ever?
