Here it is! Chapter 3 of The Winchester Family Business' Supernatural fan fiction hiatus series!

After taking a few weeks away to share real life events (i.e. Jared's birthday tribute and San Diego Comic-Con!), let’s delve back into our summer adventure!  In Chapter 1, “Every Thursday Night”, we discovered what Sam is doing on....well....Thursday nights, Dean had been tinkering in the bunker’s garage, and Cas was off on some sort of Angelic errand. Then in Chapter 2, “Castiel’s Big Mistake”, we found out why Cas had been away, and what his big mistake had been.  A couple of surprises at the end of that story led us to the story you’re about to read. 

Each story is unique and can be read on its own, but to get the most out of the adventure, we recommend starting at the beginning, with “Every Thursday Night”.

To add to the fun, we’ll be running another Fan Fiction Poll in a week’s time, and YOU will get to vote on what happens next!

In the meantime, sit back and read about Bobby’s unexpected call, and his mission for the boys....”

After a two-week break necessitated by all eyes turning to San Diego Comic-Con, let's resume the countdown of our favorite 100 Supernatural episodes! This week I’m counting down numbers 70 to 61!

How did we choose which episodes deserved to be on the Top 100 list? Rankings were determined by a group of rag-tag-war-torn fans who spend way too much of their time studying and writing about Supernatural! More specifically, participants in this ranking challenge included administrators and writers from The WFB, admins from the website Fangasm, and admins from Super-Fan-Wiki. Each individual’s rankings were tallied to create a consolidated list of our Top 100 Favorite Episodes - and by “tallied” I mean my computer-expert hubs took the excel spreadsheet and applied his math-genius skills, resulting in a formula that weighted and ranked the final results.  Details about this epic project were described in "The Road So Far" introduction.  It’s all about the Math, and say it with we – Math Don’t Lie. So let’s get to this week’s countdown!

This is Alice's interview with "Supernatural" EP Bob Singer in the press room at San Diego Comic-Con.  This is a great interview for you spoilerphobes.  Bob didn't dish any spoilers (no one at the table really asked) but he does share a bit about what went into the decision to end the show and how they all feel about going into the final season.  He also shares what he'll miss most about the show, and he gets a chance to gush about his wife Eugenie's work and their career together, probably because she was sitting at the table listening!  Those two really have been through a lot together.

Eugenie Ross-Leming has been a producer on Supernatural since season 8. Together with her writing partner Brad Buckner, Eugenie has so far written 34 episodes of Supernatural. That's more than any other writer on the show, with the exception of the current show runner Andrew Dabb. In this interview with Nightsky at San Diego Comic-Con, Eugenie reveals how Sam, Dean and Castiel will struggle with the realization that God!Chuck has negated all the battles they've won with monsters for at least the past 14 years, maybe more.  There are mild season 15 spoilers, as she speaks in general terms about returning characters, resolving open issues from the series, and how the three heroes reconcile their new reality. Enjoy!  
Here is the first of two WFB interviews with Supernatural's co-showrunner, Robert Singer. In this conversation with Nightsky, Bob talks about bringing back "fan favorite" characters, working toward a series ending that is "exciting" and he thinks fans will like, then discussing that ending with the writers and "the boys". He also talks about the likelihood of a Supernatural movie, among other things. He reveals a bit about the structure of episodes in season 15, but there are no specific spoilers on content.

Bob is one of the pillars of Supernatural. He has been a part of the series since season 1, and is one of the people Jared and Jensen respect and look to for guidance. He is also a well-recognized and respected writer, director and showrunner in the television industry, having steered several series to success. It is always a pleasure talking with Bob.
What fascinated me about this interview with Supernatural Executive Producer Brad Buckner was how forthright he was in talking about the changes the show made to Chuck going into season 15, and how those changes will rock the belief system that has guided Sam, Dean and Castiel all these years. Without being extremely specific, he answered quite a few questions that fans asked at the end of season 14. After listening to what he had to say, the landscape of the coming year is certainly much more clear.

The question about Chuck and the ramifications of trying to defeat him was mine. I was very happy with the length and detail of Brad's answer. Enjoy! 
Bobo finally made it!  After years of working through the ranks, he has earned the coveted title of "Executive Producer" and got to be part of the panel and press room in this final appearance of "Supernatural" at Comic-Con.  I really missed having him in the audience with us in Hall H, but at the same time it really does bring "Supernatural" justice to have someone who is such a fan of the show be so involved in creative matters.  Both these interviews show his enthusiasm and love for all things Winchester, more than any other producer.  In other words, I just love this guy. 

Spoiler alert!  Bob does share some things.  But it's not like he gives away the farm.  He just puts things in such a perspective where you might have a better understanding of the creative direction, especially moving from season 14 to season 15.  Any of those that might have hoped the Chuck thing is a trick, well, that gets addressed, as well as some other things.  
So yeah, Andrew Dabb has created quite a stir.  He knows the ending of "Supernatural".  He's pitched it.  He got the two leads and the other EPs to sign off on it.  But, as he knows, fan expectations are high.  Impossibly high.  He resigned himself a long time ago to the fact that he can't please everyone.  But the question is, is he right? 

One thing I find with Andrew Dabb interviews is he stands his ground and stands by his reasoning for approaching a story.  You may disagree, but he's confident in his creative direction.  His 35% might be a good joke, but how much of it is him lowering expectations?  Just what did he mean by "writer's lie?" Only time will tell.  In the meantime, is what he selling enough to get you excited about season 15?  The evidence is below.
