misha's birthday party

Okay but…Jared has not been present for any of the filming from what we’ve seen??? So what does this mean??? Is Sam not in the first episode of season 12?? Is he in only in it a little bit, like at the end??? Misha and Jensen just talked about how he is “probably on a beach somewhere” so does that mean he’s still at home in Texas??? Is this going to be a heavy Dean and Castiel premiere??? What is going onnnnnnn???
