So Jeremy, the Darkness? It’s huge.
Yeah, I think we’re really excited. So much of the show is tapping into a twisting, sort of like biblical thing. We’re sort of in unchartered ground here where we’re saying before all that there was something. We realize that something is…we teased it…that there was this battle between God and the Archangels and the Darkness. As we begin to meet the Darkness and see the Darkness we’re going to see there’s some unfinished business from that clash, how ever many zillion years ago that was. The boys are going to find themselves right in the middle of it, unfortunately also realizing that they’re mostly responsible and it weights really heavily on them. It’s going to be one of those seasons where I think they have a fair amount of guilt (over) what has happened but a real, real stiff upper lip and a sense of drive to put this thing back in the bottle as it were.
If we’re going to see The Darkness does that mean we’re going to see God down the road?
It’s a fair question to ask and it’s one the boys certainly will ask and fans of the show are going have to ask themselves, if God didn’t bother to show up for the apocalypse why is he going to show up for this? It’s one of those outstanding questions. In some ways in terms of the brothers and their melodrama, Dean this year really has this sense of this “We did this we have to fix it.” Even though they’re on the same page, Sam has this sense of, “Well, we did do this, but I’m not quite show how we’re gonna fix it.” You’ll start to see in the opening episodes Sam is going to turn to something that he hasn’t really done which is trusting in something higher because he’s a little bit out of answers right now. In a show that studiously avoids faith you’re going to see Sam Winchester start to dabble in that and I think that’s going to be a really interesting move for him.
I just spilled it all right here. At table 4, this is it. (table laughs)
Charlie, are you going to rectify it?
Am I going to rectify it? (laughs)
Get Charlie back, fix it too. Fix it.
When there is a great, great reason, I’ll be the one making the call. As anything, as with her death and with any death of any beloved character, you had to have a really good reason dramatically speaking to do what you’re doing. That would involve any return also.
