I’ve seen a lot of comments about how Claire Novak is “annoying”, a “brat”, how she’s always “whining” and I’m sure those people don’t remember how hard her life has been.

Let’s start from the beginning:

  • Her father gets possessed by an angel leaving her and her mother alone for more than a year.
  • Still as a kid she becomes aware of the supernatural. 
  • Her mother gets possessed by a demon.
  • She gets possessed by an angel.
  • Sees her father almost die, only to see him get possessed again. Also, this is the last time she will ever see “Jimmy”.
  • Her mother leaves her.
  • Spends her childhood in group/foster homes. 
  • The only grown up she sees as family uses her for his own agenda.
  • Gets attacked by a man that wants to rape her.
  • Sees said grown up dead after Dean goes on a killing spree.
  • Finds her mother after all those years only to watch her die a few minutes later.
  • Is a hunter but people think she’s the odd kid.
  • Gets attacked several times and becomes a werewolf (for a while but still).

And these are just some of the things she has been through. Claire Novak is an amazing character with a fantastic story line and what we got to see in the Wayward Sisters episode showed us that there’s still a lot to come for her, and  I can’t wait to see more of her.

In Supernatural Season 13,
  • I really want an episode where Cas is there with Jack and there’s Claire and the two just kind of have that conversation of
  • Claire: So, what is Castiel to you?
  • Jack: He's my father
  • Claire: wAh
  • Claire:
  • Claire: He wears the meat suit of my father
  • And they just kind of have that silent agreement of treating each other as siblings

'Wayward Sisters': Get the first details on the 'Supernatural' spin-off
Samantha Highfill | October 13, 2017 at 9:55am EDT

In  June, The CW announced Wayward Sisters,
 a potential Supernatural spin-off — with a backdoor pilot set to air as Supernatural‘s first episode of 2018 — about a group of troubled women who’ve all been orphaned by supernatural tragedy. Led by the late Jimmy Novak’s daughter, Claire (Kathryn Love Newton), and under the training of sheriffs Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) and Donna Hanscum (Briana Buckmaster), they’ll become a monster-fighting force. “This is an opportunity to do something in the world of Supernatural that has some of the sensibilities of Supernatural but addresses a lot of issues, scenarios, and characters that are very different,” executive producer Andrew Dabb says.

It all begins when Claire comes home. “Claire went out, she kicked ass on her own, but a crisis will occur that will force her back into the fold of the Wayward family,” EP Robert Berens explains. And though the show will have a similar feel to Supernatural — Kim Rhodes calls it a “perfect sibling” to the series — one of its biggest differences is location. While Supernatural is a road show, Wayward will be localized in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, a decision that Dabb says allows them to create a real community. “This is a place where romance can happen. Or rivalry,” he says.

Speaking of which, Claire arrives home to find that her caretaker, Jody, has taken in a new psychic named Patience (Clark Backo), the granddaughter of Missouri Moseley (Loretta Devine), and she won’t exactly be happy about it. “[Jody] is constantly saying, ‘My door is always open,’ and she does it again in episode 3 of this season where we meet Patience,” Rhodes says. Dabb adds that Patience will serve as the “eyes of the show” when she walks in as the new girl. “Everyone else is like, ‘Sometimes we do autopsies of monsters on the dinner table.’ She’s like, ‘That’s insane! That’s not a thing people do.’ She’s there to offer a little bit of perspective.”

Rounding out the family is Alex (Katherine Ramdeen), the first girl Jody took in and the closest thing she has to a daughter, and Kaia (Yadira Guevara-Prip), 
a new addition who has the ability to walk between worlds in her dreams. “Kaia has been on her own for a long time,” Dabb says. “She’s not sure who she can trust, but she starts to form certain bonds and relationships that make it clear that this is the place she needs to be.” One of those bonds will be with Claire, whom Kathryn Love Newton reveals saves Kaia’s life when they first come into contact. “She wants to keep Kaia safe,” Newton says. “It’s really important to her, and you’ll find out why.”

As for Kaia’s ability to walk between worlds, Newton says the story “does have a little more of a fantasy vibe” than Supernatural, though it still has what she calls the “core Supernatural dynamic.” As Berens puts it, they approached the spin-off with the attitude of: “What’s a show that’s like Supernatural but different?” And although one of the key differences is the fact that this show features women at its center, Rhodes says it’s not “Supernatural with girls.” Rather, as she puts it, “It’s Supernatural with heroes that happen to be female.”

But unlike Supernatural, Wayward features a much larger support system for the central characters, a key detail for the writers. “What is possible if you have more than just a sibling relationship to guide you through this process,” Berens says. “Could it be different? Could it be less psychologically and physically damaging than what we’ve seen Sam and Dean go through? That’s a really core question of the show.”

Speaking of Sam and Dean, there is a reason why they don’t just show up and help out. Rhodes promises, “It’s made very clear why this is happening without Sam and Dean, although there’s a beautiful opportunity for them to come visit.”

After all, Jody’s door is always open.


So I woke up this morning, completely confused because I apparently created a ship in my sleep.

Jack Kline / Claire Novak

And I have no idea howI feel about it. Like, a bit confused and squicky because they are basically adopted siblings, being Winchester foundlings.

But then I think how fucking cute it would be and they are kind of like a mini Destiel. Jack is a literal mirror of Castiel. I’ve long said Claire is a young Dean: angry at the world; happy to use her pretty face to get what she wants; uses humour to hide her pain; pretends like she doesn’t care when really she feels things all too deeply.

But the really important question is, what can we call it?

Jaire? Klovak? Nine? Vessilim? Foundlings?

Chicks? Mini-stiel?


Supernatural Episode 12.16 “Ladies Drink Free”

However, the reunion is short lived after Claire is bitten and the brothers race to find a way to help her before she turns. Amyn Kaderali directed the episode written by Meredith Glynn (#1216). Original airdate 3/30/2017.

So I just heard a rumor that wayward sisters is going to start with Jody calling Claire and saying “the boys are on a hunting trip and haven’t been home in a few days” and i just wanna crawl into a hole and die leave me be
