Robbie Thompson is largely considered by Supernatural fans to be one of its most creative, talented writers. From 2011 to 2016 (season 7 through 11), Robbie wrote 18 episodes, including the series’ milestone 200th episode (“Fan Fiction” 10.05), and co-produced a total of 94 hours of the series. His beloved characters and imaginative plots forever changed the course of Supernatural's storyline.  After penning one of Supernatural’s most pivotal episodes (“Don’t Call Me Shurley” 11.20), Robbie left Supernatural to join the Marvel universe as a writer of science fiction comic books.

I had the distinct honor of sitting with Robbie at his Marvel signing table during the 2019 Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2).  We talked about writing for Supernatural, the creative decisions behind his many outstanding episodes, and the twists and turns of his career. The interview, which was planned to last approximately an hour, ended up extending over two full days at C2E2, then continued months later at San Diego Comic-Con. Our conversation was casual, fluid and candid, as Robbie shared his thoughts between signing collectibles and posing for fan photos.

If things really do happen for a reason, this turned out to be the most fortuitous timing possible for us to be together (at least for me). When the interview began, we were blissfully ignorant that Friday, March 22, would be the day that changed everything for the Supernatural family. Start with Part 1 of the interview, then continue here for more of Robbie's insights on Supernatural

Welcome back to "Top Six Favourites Episodes", this time for season eight. These are, still to this day, the nearest and dearest to my heart, my comfort episodes, the ones I go to when I need a laugh or a cry or the comfort of an old friend. 

Before you read my list, make your own list of season 8 favourites! It will be fun to compare your unbiased choices (before you are unduly influenced by my memories or picks) to mine.  If you're joining Nightsky and The WFB in the #SPNSummer2019 Rewatch, or rewatching at your own pace this hiatus, the episodes should be fresh in your mind! Save your list then, because you'll need it for TOP 100 Episode challenge that The Winchester Family Business is running all hiatus! Nightsky reveals her Top 6 season 8 favourites after mine, so you'll have two WFB staff lists as a comparison!

So without further ado, here's my list of Season Eight Favourites! The list is by order of appearance only, as they all are equal in their importance to me. 

This is it, dear readers!  We’ve reached the end of the Supernatural Fan Fiction Summer Series!

If you haven't been keeping up with Team Free Will's summer adventure, it all began with "Every Thursday Night"! Starting at the beginning explains everything that's happening, but if you need to take a shortcut, the best on ramp would be "A Mission from Bobby".  In this conclusion of our mystery, we find out what’s behind the glowing objects, and their connection to Frank and Grace! 

But, for now, let’s join Sam, Dean and Cas in the Caribbean, for one last dose of intrigue and fun in the sun.

Here it is... at long last... The Final Countdown!

Did you just sing that?

Announcing numbers 5, 4, and 3 of our Favorite 100 Supernatural Episodes!

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!



The idea for this article has been brewing in my mind a while but I haven’t had time to write it before. What would be your choice for top 5 TV series and top 5 movie stars that would make excellent hunters in "Supernatural"? Their involvement in the movies/TV series that I have seen them in is the example of how good of a hunter they would be. My choices are mostly rough around the edges and who have seen the bad side of life.

We got the news in this week that actually - SPOILER - (highlight the following text to see) number one from my TOP 5 TV series list was actually going to be on the last season of Supernatural! - As a hunter a matter of fact. I could not believe it so of course I wanted to get this article out to celebrate the exact announcement.
 
PS. I clearly have a type both in men and women… Oh well, who can blame me in this case!

Here are my choices to play hunters in Supernatural!
