It's been an abundance of riches this week for Supernatural fans!  Entertainment Weekly's Samantha Highfill and photographer Peggy Sirota took Jared, Jensen and Misha to a mountain top in Malibu, California for what has become the most amazing stream of high energy, high emotion photos ever gifted to fans! 

 The Entertainment Weekly Cover Shoot

On Monday, April 13th,  Entertainment Weekly released a preview of their May issue,Supernatural stars reflect on the show's undying legacy (Warning: there is a casting spoilers in the article). Samantha Highfill, a writer who's partnered with the WB to create many excellent feature articles for the show and its stars over the years, put together another fabulous tribute to 15 years of Supernatural. Photographer Peggy Sirota's photos are the highlight of the article, capturing the intimate friendship between these three lead actors! The setting and the pictures are truly stunning! The article also includes a lengthy video of the cover shoot, with impromptu dance moves from Jared, and laughs and plentiful hugs all around! The champagne was flowing and emotions were running high as the boys said goodbye to EW and Supernatural.  If things had worked out as planned, the issue would have hit news stands around the time of the series finale on May 18.  
 

 
 
 The cast was anxious to share the shoot with fans!
 
 

We now know this shoot was the source of the emotional tribute from Jared to Jensen for his birthday:
