This is for MyMadWorld, who reminded me that I did let something slide. I should have done this a while ago, but things got REALLY crazy after Comic Con and I figured everyone had heard this quote from the Comic Con panel. Apparently a few had not so I dug out my video of the panel and found this quote when a fan asked him about "The Monster At The End of This Book." This is exactly how that episode came to be, why they like doing meta episodes, and why more are on the way. I know for a fact episode 5.09 is a meta episode.
From the words of the Master:
(The Monster At The End of This Book) was Nancy Weinerâ€™s who is our writer's assistant, it was her idea, totally, it didn't come from any of our heads. She showed up one day and wanted to do a stranger than fiction episode in which Sam and Dean find out that theyâ€™re characters in a book. And then we laughed and said "no that's impossible." It's one of those stories that kept floating around...this is actually how the writers process works. So we have the idea and we kick it around and we say its impossible and forget it and there's certain ideas we just can't shake.
It was actually me going into Sera's office and saying "why is this guy writing this book, is he one of the psychic kids and I can't figure out why he would do it," and then she said "Why don't you make him a prophet?" which was Sera's idea. And then it all of a sudden snapped into focus because it tied into the mythology. We have a lot of fun being self deprecating. We're aware of our faults and the scenes in our bunny costume as much as anybody and its sort of fun to poke fun at the show. And again I have such a tempetuous, loving, conflicted relationship with the online fandom that I also was attracted to possibility to also poke a little, loving fun, very loving fun, please don't hurt me.
And then Chuck became so attractive that when Ben and I were breaking the season finale Ben said we gotta bring back Chuck and he flew so seemlessly into the season opener. On the board there's more meta episodes on the way because we had so much fun that I think there will be more.

This is the Sam Winchester version of the WTPoD. I canâ€™t explain this look. It just follows him wherever he goes. Theyâ€™ve certainly progressed throughout the seasons, but if anything theyâ€™ve gotten more painful. You know, something happens to upset poor Sam and he takes it in by scrunching his lips together, flashing the eyes of sadness and taking it all in internally. He just swallows the pain. Honest, Iâ€™ve said this before and Iâ€™ll say it again, how has this been healthy mentally? How has this not contributed to a massive nervous breakdown by now? He really is a freak. Our loveable freak.
While I don't believe this is the first time Sam's used the SFoD, it's the first time I noticed it. He turns to it after he and Dean somberly listen to John's cellphone message with sitting on the trunk of the Impala. Sam takes the blow hard but swallows it all, then climbs into the Impala. Dean's more bothered by Sam's reaction than John's message. He rightfully should be.
