Sera Gamble and Robert Singer talk Season 7.
During a special screening and Q&A event for the show in Los Angeles, Sera Gamble and Robert Singer talk about Dean in season seven to Danielle Turchiano, LA TV Insider Examiner. Some of the highlights are below.
– In season seven of the CW series, she starts with the Impala garaged in a similar manner. After being flipped over and half-crushed in the season six finale, Dean (Jensen Ackles) has a lot of work on his hands to get his baby back up and running again. He basically has to rebuild the car completely in order to make it “as good as mint.” The Impala’s state can be seen as a metaphor once again. This time, though, for the way in which Dean will have to build himself back up after he unravels a bit this season.
– Gamble told LA TV Insider Examiner that the Impala is being used in the season premiere episode, “Meet The Boss,” simply to show the passing of time. She thought it was the easiest way for the writers to exhibit how much time has passed since Castiel initially sucked in all of the souls and channeled the power of God. Making progress on a car proves the events that happen so quickly in the first hour back for the series really are not happening in just a day or even a week after the events of last season’s finale.
– “Dean will have lots of issues this year that he’s going to have to deal with,” co-executive producer Bob Singer teased. “During the first thirteen episodes [of season seven], I think he will probably carry a rockier journey in an odd way in terms of how he feels emotionally and how he deals with things. He’s on a real rollercoaster. Jensen has plenty to do!”
– Dean will have a major upcoming moment in the fourth episode– the episode that Singer directed– though, during which he is put on trial by an Egyptian God. Yes, you read that right: Castiel isn’t the only God Supernatural will explore this season! “Cyrus– an Egyptian God– he weights how heavy your heart is against a feather…It’s all about carrying guilt,” Singer previewed.
– Dean has a lot of guilt about the things he’s done, most notably the way in which his good friend Jo (Alonna Tal) died. And Jo returns for that episode, to act as a “witness” during the trial, which is chock full of emotional weight for both actors, especially when they get to the flashbacks from previous moments they shared.
– Dean will interact heavily with guest star D.J. Qualls, when he gets “stuck in an emergency situation when he can’t be with Bobby and can’t be with Sam and needs a hunter” in another upcoming episode. Bobby (Jim Beaver) sends him a “quirky” guy named Garth, played by Qualls, who let’s just say, may prove to antagonize Dean in his own unique way.To read the complete article, click here.
At the same Q&A, Sera Gamble and Bob Singer also talked about s7 and Sam. Highlights below
– â€œWhatâ€™s happening with Sam isnâ€™t something that he can hide for very long. It comes out pretty quickly that heâ€™s dealing with this awful wall-breaking situation, which escalates really, really dramatically in the [second] episode that Ben Edlund wrote,â€ Gamble shared.
– â€œItâ€™s something that Dean is dealing with, that Bobby is trying to deal with; it was an interesting thing to throw at them because every now and then a hunter will come into their sphere where theyâ€™ve been hunting for so long, theyâ€™ve gone crazy. And Ben wrote just a couple of lines in the episode about how â€˜Itâ€™s one thing to get hexed or possessed, but itâ€™s another to lose your marbles.â€™ And, you know, the episode kind of discusses that this is Sam, kind of facing that moment as a hunter where itâ€™s just too much. He might just be losing his marbles for good, and thereâ€™s no amulet he can wear for that. And he could try Prozac, maybe, if itâ€™s really strong, and you know, that doesnâ€™t sound so good to him. So itâ€™s this intersection between what happens in the real world when someone is in a really awful job for a long time and the supernatural.â€ She continues, â€œItâ€™s a really hard thing. It was a really big sacrifice he madeâ€”I mean when he jumped into the pit to stop the apocalypse. So now heâ€™s living with this fissure in his head,â€ Gamble continued. â€œWe didnâ€™t want to wrap it up in one episode, where the wall breaks, but then heâ€™s fine and drinking a beer and talking about it!â€
– After the first few episodes, the tone and focus will shift a bit. There will be resolution to Samâ€™s situation in one way, only to have a new door to a whole other set of issues opened. And that, of course, will introduce a whole new big bad.
– â€œSam and Dean kind of feel like they are part of a smallâ€¦way of fighting evil. They feel kind of outmatched in the way the world around them as moved,â€ Gamble admitted. â€œWe introduced the idea of purgatory and the monsters there. Thatâ€™s an awful place, and hellâ€™s an awful place, and heaven, frankly, sounds kind of boring to me. But when you think about it, our place– Earth– is sort of this Eden. Slightly corrupted but full of possibilities, certainly, and it seems like everyone wants to be here, so thereâ€™s a lot of direction we can go in with that.â€
– â€œWeâ€™re breaking an episode right now thatâ€™s pretty cool where thereâ€™s a whole new means [of time travel],â€ Gamble said, noting that angels would not be involved in â€œzappingâ€ the boys back with this one. â€œOne of the guys gets stuck in 1944, which is very different from being out west! Itâ€™s a much darker time period. It turns out the case they were trying to solve back then is the same type of case that Sam and Dean are trying to solve right now.â€
