Um. Hi! I'm back, after a...errr rather unexpectedly lengthy hiatus!
And what better way to make a comeback than with a SPOILERPALOOZA post for season 11!
So without any further a doo doo....
WELCOME TO THE
(part 1 probably)
ARE YOU READY?!
HERE WE GO!
Now, Jensen gave us a few spoilers on this one during his meet and greet at Dallascon - which I attended. He said, the premiere episode picks up where we left off, except we're not sure how much time has passed since the Darkness enveloped the boys in the Impala, and we're not sure exactly what happened during that time. Oooooo!
He also said, this promo is misleading (big surprise). That the black veins on Sammy are not reminiscent of the demon blood like in When the Levy Breaks, but is caused by something going on in the town that they're in. That Sam is affected by this, but doesn't tell Dean (DUDES, DUDES, SECRETS ARE BAD), and that he cures himself, but still doesn't tell Dean! *UPSIDES BOTH OF THEM IDJITS!*.
Jensen also said, that there is something pursuing Sam - sort off - but it's not necessarily a bad or evil thing... (He was all cheeky grin and mischievous eyes...swoon). He also said both boys are unafflicted by supernatural forces for the first time in a long time and that they are very much on the same page. That they have a common goal and are working together to fight evil and hunt things and save people.
Jensen said that so far he felt the season had a very season 1 Kripke era feel and that Carver should be congratulated for taking the show back there.
I'm paraphrasing obviously because when Jensen talks there are a lot things going on in your brain. But he seemed very happy, and very impressed with where the show has been taken this season. Yay!
SPEAKING OF THE CARVER!
This just dropped today! THE CARVER talking a little about what to expect in the first two episodes of Season 11!
Ooooo I get all tingly when they show us bits of the show we haven't seen! And I love the idea of the first two episodes being the set up arc for the season! So excitement!
Here are the titles that we know...
Supernatural - Episode 11.01 - Out of the Darkness, Into the Fire
Supernatural - Episode 11.02 - Form and Void
Supernatural - Episode 11.03 - The Bad Seed
Supernatural - Episode 11.04 - Baby
Who else is peeing their pants over The Baby episode...and not just because Jared said he walked onto set and saw more of Jensen's inner thigh than he ever wanted to! CAR WASH SCENE! WOOT!
Here's what Jared had to say about episdoe 4 - "Baby"
"It's done in a very clever supernatural way, mind you, but episode four is a very cool episode. It's all about the Impala. We've had this third lead character for 10 seasons strong and, we're not revealing a personality, but we see just how much a part of Winchesters' lives it is... You kind of see the Impala in work in all these scenes from seasons past where we haven't necessarily known where it is or known how it got there. You see just how crucial a character is.... It will portray an essential story, You kind of see the Impala in work in all these scenes from seasons past where we haven't necessarily know where it is or known how it got there."
While we're talking episodes...what about the synopsis for the first two episode to air? Yes?
"Out of the Darkness, Into the Fire"
OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: THE WINCHESTERS FACE THEIR BIGGEST THREAT EVER — Picking up where the finale left off, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) must deal with the Darkness that has been unleashed. Castiel (Misha Collins) deals with the effects of Rowena’s (Ruth Connell) spell and recalls his brutal battle with Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard). Robert Singer directed the episode written by Jeremy Carver (#1102). Original air date 10/7/2015.
This episode was shot 2nd, after Jensen directed the first episode back after hiatus, which will run third.
“Form and Void”
DEAN AND SAM FACE THEIR OWN BATTLES — Dean (Jensen Ackles) helps Jenna (guest star Laci J. Mailey), the nurse he met after the Darkness fell, get back home safely and then sets off to help Sam (Jared Padalecki) deal with a town infected by a mysterious and deadly gas. However, when Jenna falls into dangerous hands, she calls Dean for help and Sam tells him to go back to her. Unfortunately for Sam, he isn’t able to handle the townspeople turned monsters as easily as he thought. Phil Sgriccia directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb (#1103). Original airdate 10/14/2015.
Shot third - but airing second. By episode 4 we will be in shooting/screening order - unless production make a change down the track, which they probably will!
We also got a full set of promo pics for the first episode!
Guess Crowley survives! :P
Grenade launcher! Jensen must be so happy!
So is this the woman mentioned in the synopsis for episode 2? The Winchesters are going to have a lot of lady cops in their contact lists!
I love that Sam and Dean are wearing the same clothes as the season finale (MURDER SHIRT!). Bit stinky though! Though...I bet they smell like sunshine and happiness. (I BET THEY DON'T!....mmm sweaty Sam and Dean smell.... oops! Sorry (not sorry) )
I just totally got distracted by Jensen's tweet about being directed today by Rich... FEELS!
Anyhooo where was I before I got jenstracted? Oh right, stinky Winchesters! 😝
And with Richard Speight, Jr. kicking off as director TODAY, here is a casting spoiler on that episode. Which will be episode 8 - written by Jenny Klein.
Meet Sam's imaginary friend, who heard about at Comic Con!
This is via Variety
Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) will get a blast from the past in “Supernatural’s” upcoming 11th season. The CW’s enduring horror series has cast Nate Torrence as Sully, Sam’s imaginary friend from childhood, Variety has learned exclusively.
Sully appears in episode 1108, titled “Just My Imagination,” because he needs Sam and Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) help. The episode will be directed by “Supernatural” alum Richard Speight Jr., who memorably played the angel Gabriel (and moonlighted as The Trickster) in various episodes between seasons two and nine.
Torrence was most recently seen in Fox’s midseason comedy “Weird Loners,” and previously appeared on HBO’s “Hello Ladies,” ABC’s “Mr. Sunshine” and NBC’s “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip".
I'm so excited for Richard to be directing! In Jensen's meet and greet in Dallas, he told us it was a very Ben Edlundesque episode. Sounds like it! He also told us he was excited to see what Rich does with the episode. Jensen is a big fan of Richard and his work. He has a lot of respect for Richard (which I bet doesn't mean that Jared and him don't have naughtiness up their sleeves!)
So what else do we know?
- Cas will be afflicted by Rowena's spell for a while and the boys will try to help him.
- Crowley survives - obviously.
- Sam takes up praying - looks to a higher power (and I have a hunch that might be something to do with whatever is coming for Sam that isn't necessarily bad).
- Dean washes Baby and there will be blooper reel stuff of this, and I can't wait weeeeeeeee!
- There's a flashback scene where we see Sam shirtless and we see the anti-possession tattoo (apparently he hasn't been reinked because he's "Sam fucking Winchester" - according to Jared.
- The boys have some kind of visions at some point - which makes them question what's real and what's not.
- There may be reference to Sam and Dean's vessel status - and whether that has any ongoing affect on them or gives them some kind of power.
- Dean could feel a tie/pull to the Darkness due to his lengthy exposure to the Mark of Cain.
- The Darkness will manifest in female human form.
- No one knows about The Darkness - due to it be pre-biblical. God is the only one with the backstory, it's even outside of angelic knowledge. So the guys are kind of on their own.
- The boys will align themselves with people which may not seem like the best idea (what's new!)
- There will be reappearances by past characters/fan favourites we haven't seen in a while.
Okay... with less than 2 weeks to go until the season premiere, expect cast interviews (there was some press on set recently), sneak peeks, maybe another promo, more spoilers, before THE AWESOMENESS OF SEASON 11 KICKS OFF!
I'll be back with spoilers as they drop, and of course, I'll have my preview for the season opener soon.
I'll also have a guest report from one of my friends who attended Vancon, and I'll do a quick wrap up of Dallascon!
So...sorry for my absence! But I'm officially back!
