Family Don't End With Blood

Featuring a chapter from Nightsky!
  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "American Nightmare"

    "Those who improve with age embrace the power of personal growth and personal achievement and begin to replace youth with wisdom, innocence with understanding, and lack of purpose with self-actualization." — Bo Bennet

    Sometimes you forget how gruesome and disturbing Supernatural can be.

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Keep Calm and Carry On"

     "Karma brings us ever back to rebirth, binds us to the wheel of births and deaths. Good Karma drags us back as relentlessly as bad, and the chain which is wrought out of our virtues holds as firmly and as closely as that forged from our vices." — Annie Besant

    I guess I should start this article with the familiar words: "Long time no see!" I am your friendly hiatus writer with the Fan Video articles.

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Lotus"

    The devil ain't got no power over me. The devil come, and me shake hands with the devil. Devil have his part to play. Devil's a good friend, too... because when you don't know him, that's the time he can mosh you down."— Bob Marley

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Mamma Mia"


    "Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home."— Matsuo Basho

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Rock Never Dies"


    "A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." — Christopher Reeve

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "The Foundry"

    "Loneliness is my least favorite thing about life. The thing that I'm most worried about is just being alone without anybody to care for or someone who will care for me." — Anne Hathaway

    The first word that came into my mind when the episode was over was "hurt". That even though Mary needed to do this, she hurt her boys.

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Who We Are"


    "Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you." — George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones


    The name of the episode, "Who We Are", made me choose identity as the theme for this article. Mary and her boys are the best example of identity and who they are. In this episode, the past came to the forefront.

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections 12.05 "The One You've Been Waiting For"

    "I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." — Nelson Mandela

    Have you ever thought that Supernatural could be a series that predicts the future? What ever it is, this episode hit too close to home for some.

  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look Supernatural 12.11 "Regarding Dean"

    One of my fondest memories has to be the Halloween Blizzard of 1991. Any Minnesotan old enough to remember knows what I'm talking about. I was nine---and determined that I would trick or treat despite the knee-high snow and winds. My friends and I crawled over and through drifts---and one of my friends decided they would be a cheerleader that year, no matter what the weather. It was wild, fun, and something that makes me smile to this day. Other fond memories can be triggered just by a scent. Anything that smells like the Minnesota Renaissance Festival takes me to that beloved place in a heartbeat. It makes me think of the shows I've seen, the shops I've visited, and the atmosphere of the Festival all at once. Other memories aren't so good---times I've seen my parents in the hospital or had to say goodbye to a beloved pet. And yet, each experience makes me me. Each experience puts another page into my own history---shaping who I am now and who I will be in the future.

  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look Supernatural 12.01 "Keep Calm and Carry On"

    The title “Keep Calm and Carry On” perfectly sums up the season 12 Supernatural premiere. The phrase, a British saying that originated in World War II, points to so much of what happens. The obvious example can be found in the introduction of our newest villains---the British Men of Letters in Lady Toni---but that is only the surface.

  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look Supernatural 12.02 "Mamma Mia"

     “If you ever wanna talk. I know what it's like to come back and not feel like you really fit,” Sam tells his mother at the end of “Mamma Mia.” In many ways, the statement blankets the entire episode.

  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look Supernatural 12.04 "American Nightmare"

    “Well, maybe we should focus on the case and less of the Dr. Phil crap,” Dean retorts to Sam at the morgue. And yet, the case itself reflects the real problem the Winchesters have in “American Nightmare”: the inability or unwillingness to talk.

  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look Supernatural 12.06 "Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox"

    “Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox” is perfectly named. Amidst mourning a death, we see life truly cherished and celebrated. After all, dying is easy. It is living that is hard to do.

  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look: Supernatural 12.03 "The Foundry"

    Sometimes, to better understand or grow the Supernatural universe, we must examine secondary characters center stage. By doing so, we grow closer to the Winchester brothers and learn about another person within their world.

  • Interview with Jared Padalecki - Comic Con 2016

    Here's Jared's interview!  Transcribing a Jared interview is always a challenge.  He says a lot in five minutes.  In this interview he gives us a small glimpse as to what Sam's situation is in season 12 and judging by his description, it's not pretty.  What's new?  

    Below is the transcribed interview and the video.  Again, apologies for the grainy video, but the room was pretty dark and using proper lighting on our cameras just would have been rude.  There is a pleasant treat in this video, as Misha and Jared almost kiss with tongues.  But alas, the time was short.

    Right, one more thing...SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!

  • Interview with Jensen Ackles - Comic Con 2016

    Here it is, our annual press room interview with Jensen Ackles!  This one is pretty exciting for us.  We only had four minutes with Jensen, but out of the three questions asked, I got to ask one and Nightsky got to ask the other!  

    Apologies up front for the video quality, but the room was super dark.  Far worse than other years.  It really was asking a lot of an iPhone to fix the lighting.  But the content and what Jensen said is pure gold, so enjoy.  We were very lucky to score 8 interviews in the press room, as Ruth Connel and Samantha Smith were surprise guests.  So all of those will coming in the next few days.  

    Below is the transcript of the interview and then the video on Youtube.  Grainy as the quality may be, Jensen does some pretty funny things in this video that do not show up in a transcript.  So I'd advise watching.  One more thing...

    SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!

  • Interview with Misha Collins - Comic Con 2016

    Ah, Misha.  He was actually our first interview of the day.  We were told by the CW publicist before he took a seat to make sure we asked Misha a question about GISHWHES since registration closes tomorrow.  So that's exactly what we did!  How Misha finds time for all this is beyond me!  

    Below is the full transcript and video for Misha's interview with us in the San Diego Comic Con Supernatural press room.  Both Nightsky and I got to ask questions.  Misha does share some interesting tidbits.  Could it be that my dream of the return of warrior Castiel come true?  Misha talks a bit about that in this interview too.  

    You know what's coming...the disclaimer.  SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Interview with Ruth Connell - Comic Con 2016

    Ruth started out our talk by mentioning that she was having trouble hearing out of her left ear.  So if you notice in an answer or two her complaining about hearing, you’ll know why.  Otherwise Ruth is someone who loves to talk, and that’s not a bad thing.  She was having so much fun talking to us about Comic Con that she had to be put on track to address what she was supposed to talk about, season twelve.  Ah well, we didn’t mind, it is her first crack at this roundtable press conference thing.  I just love listening to her Scottish accent.  Between her and Henry Ian Cusick in “The 100” press room, I got a good fill of Scottish accents over the weekend. 

    Below is the full transcript and video. 
  • Interview with Samantha Smith - Comic Con 2016 aka Asskickerage!

    We have a new word to describe Supernatural Season 12, and Samantha Smith deserves all the credit.  In this interview she has coined the term that pretty much describes Mary's return, and the female presence in general for season 12...Asskickerage.  It has a nice ring.

    Samantha was a surprise guest and in twelve seasons this is the first time I've ever got to interview her.  I've met her at cons before though and she's always been so sweet and pleasant. No doubt the whole experience of being back on "Supernatural" has thrown her for a loop, but she's digging in and having the time of her life. 

    There are some mild teasers in there, but no big spoilers, unless you find Mary being a hunter a big surprise.  Considering that reveal was done in season four, that info shouldn't be new.   

    Below is the full transcript of the interview and the video for it.  Again, yet again, apologies for the quality of the video.  Dark rooms just mess up everything, but at least Samantha wore white, which softens the video a bit.  
  • Interview with Supernatural Executive Producer Robert Singer - Comic Con 2016

    Mr. Singer took his seat and in a pleasant surprise, recognized Nightsky right away.  It could have been from last year's Chicago Con when Singer made an appearance (we were both there), but also back in season nine when “Bloodlines” was shot in Chicago, Singer was the director.  Nightsky went to the filming sites and she talked with the producers for a bit.  It’s all in the report she did for us back in season nine.  Trust me when I say, the behind the scenes filming report is way better than the actual episode!

    After having a few mishaps with adjusting the camera (as you see in the video clip), we were on our way.  This ended up being our longest interview of the day, clocking in at over 8 minutes.
