When I rewatch s3 I noticed that Lauren Cohen's name was with J2 and not in the guest star category. Does it mean that they might have wanted to make her one of the main cast? I mean Misha and and Mark's name didn't start to be with J2 until s10.

True story, her name does in fact appear just after Jared and Jensen and before the “Guest Starring” label in her episodes.

She was upgraded to Series Regular status at the request of the then CW President who wanted a second female lead along with Ruby for the season. Apparently they liked the idea of her as an antagonist to the boys, but botched the pacing on integrating her into the Winchesters’ story. Ultimately the writers decided to scrap the character after feeling they’d made her too antagonistic to be realistic to the journey. So she was gonna be main cast, and then…wasn’t.

(Misha was first upgraded to Series Regular in Seasons 5 & 6 and then again in Season 9 onwards, and Mark in Season 10.)

My ECCC Experience

Warning – This turned into a book. I will put the bulk under a cut.

 Well, what a weekend that was. I see many people have shared their experiences & I wasn’t going to cause I didn’t want to be repetitive (plus I hate writing), but what the hell – here we go.

 It all started on Thursday night when my husband & I checked in at the Sheraton & then headed over to The Whisky Bar to meet up w/ about 25 other fans for whisky tasting & general mayhem. It was such a blast to meet other fans in the flesh & everyone was so lovely.

 Friday was very long & tiring, but also quite exhilarating. It started with waiting 3 ½ hours in line for the panel in VERY tight & warm conditions, but a good number of people had to wait in the cold rain, so I won’t complain. We ended up in the 8th row on the center aisle. We had a perfect view of the stage, but a bit far for any great pics from my camera phone, but I’ll share a couple here anyway.

 Since everyone saw the panel already, I won’t get into that except to say it was absolutely marvelous. Sam & Cait were glorious live & the energy in the room was palpable. Everything they said is pretty much a blur & I still need to rewatch it to make it all real.

 We went straight to the autographs after the panel, but they were already capped off, so we hung out for a bit & then headed to our dual photo-op w/ Sam & Cait. The organization was a complete shit-show and they had no idea what they were doing. We were moved all over the place & then smooshed all together against the wall to wait again while they figure it out. After about an hour, they got it together & we were on our way to stand in line.
