Here it is, the transcription of my round table interview with Jared Padalecki at today’s “Supernatural” press room at Comic Con. We were very fortunate to get five minutes with him and we learned a lot in that short time, likely because he talks pretty fast.  Out of all the people we talked to, Jared spoiled the most. Beware, this is some major stuff. He also gave nice long answers. 
 
MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!!!   


I want to say congratulations you on your recent marriage. You guys kind of let your fans down doing it so close together.
(Laughs) I know. People ask that question all the time. They’re like “uh, did y’all plan this on purpose?” I’m like (sarcastically)“yeah, we planned to get engaged and married really close to each other, that what we were worried about.” 
It had nothing to do with the five year plan?
(laughs) No, its just one of those, I don’t know what’s the word for it, synergism or something I think. Its just that time in our lives where we just found the women and started to make it stick. Now we are where we are. Thank you.
(my question) Sam at this point is in a real messed up place…
(nodding) Sam is in a messed up place. Of all the messed up places Sam has been, this kind of takes the cake. I mean going to Hell and back, people have always asked me how I’ve wanted the show to end. I’m like, “I think it would be fun for Sam and Dean to die.” Well Sam has died, Dean has died, we both have died, we’ve both been to Hell, we’ve been to Heaven, so I don’t know of anything that can take us down. I think after spending some time in the hole with Lucifer Sam’s definitely pretty messed up. 
Will we get into what happened to Sam during that time?
I’d love to. I don’t yet know. I’ve been told by the Gods of Supernatural that we’re not really going to get into that, probably like episode nine or ten or eleven. So I’ve read right now up to episode five. We’ve always been weirded out by the fact that Sam is back but (he) hasn’t been trying to figure that out. We’ve kind of accepted that Sam tried to figure it out, he couldn’t. Dean tried to figure it out, he couldn’t. Bobby…We haven’t even seen Castiel yet. He doesn’t come in until episode four (aka fourth one filmed) so we’re in day two of episode three right now. I think it’s going to be one of the main parts of the season when we get around to it. Right now we just know that Sam is back, Sam doesn’t truly know how he’s back, that’s not a secret he’s holding, Dean truly does not know how Sam is back, so we’re trying to figure that out. 
Right now, I’m dealing with the changes in Sam’s personality. He’s sort of cut the bull now. He doesn’t want to talk about his feelings. He’s not like Dean, “Let’s talk, we’re in the car, come on.” He’s like “What’s there to talk about?  I was in Hell, why would I want to talk about it? I’m back, I’m breathing air, I’m seeing my family, why would I in the world would I want to.” He’s being very realistic. And he’s very cut to the point, almost like Dean was in season one. He’s like “I don’t want to talk, let’s just get the job done, the person is bad, sorry they have a family or sorry there’s a child but they’re bad, we’ve got to get rid of them.” So like it’s kind of flipped because now Dean is seeing a bit of family life. He has Lisa, he has Ben. Sam is like “Hey, I don’t want to go back to Hell. Let’s just figure out what the right thing to do and do it and ask questions later.” 
So when we see the first episode are we going to see Sam already integrated back into their (Dean, Lisa, Ben’s) lives?
We see the reunion, but we also figure out that Sam didn’t get out of Hell and go straight to Dean. Sam got out of Hell and went, “Dean thinks I’m dead. He saw me fall into a hole with an archangel and The Devil. Dean is pretty sure I’m dead, he didn’t get me out, I’m just going to let him live his life.” As opposed to when Dean got out of Hell he needed some answers and he went to Bobby. Sam is sort of like “Let Dean do his thing.” Dean thinks he has normalcy, hopefully he does have normalcy, I think he’s earned some normal life after everything he’s done and been through and seen.
Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately cause I’m back on the show (laughs), unfortunately there’s a problem that brings Sam and Dean together. We figure out that something that is after Dean was after Sam previously thinks it got Sam and now it’s after Dean. So Sam has to say to Dean “Look I’m sorry, I’m back, and you need my help.” And that’s not a very blissful reconciliation. Bad time together again for a little bit.
What do you think when the show got picked for another season? Did you think you guys were over?
I don’t know, this show has just been a constant surprise after another. We’re so sort discombobulated, a head with the shoulders in another country. But we’re in Vancouver and we’re working so much that we don’t really get out to see that people are watching and people care.   They’ve surprised me every time. We’re like “Really? Sweet.” It’s such a nice support, so flattering and a nice show of support from the network and studios and they keep bringing us back. Our numbers are sticking with us and fans are watching and they’re excited. When we found out during season five I was going, “Wait a second, where are we gonna go? We really can’t get bigger than God and Lucifer and going into Hell and killing The Devil so what are we going to do?” That was my main concern and then after meeting with the writers, meeting with Sera and Eric and Ben who I saw this summer, I’m like, “Okay I get it, I’m cool. We’re back and we’re better than ever.”
