We’re like ships passing in the night…
Interviewer: “Sam and Dean as well as Cas have been so busy this season with so many various antagonists - Gadreel, Crowley, Metatron, Abaddon, not to mention various angels and various demons. Will we see these separate story lines begin to come together more, or is it very much ‘everybody’s busy fighting their own battles’?”
Jensen: “I would like it to…all gel together, and it probably will.They usually kind of bring it back around and it all kind of comes to a head, together. There’s, it’s funny, there are people on the show that I have never even met because the storylines are so opposite. They really compartmentalized the show this year to the point where the stories are very separate. We don’t even…we’re like ships passing in the night, as far as other actors and stuff go. So I think at some point it does have to all fall in together and all relate to each other. We’re getting close to the end of the season so I would assume that that’s probably coming up pretty soon." - Jensen Ackles

Gah, I’d like Team Free Will together in the same scenes pretty soon.
*crosses fingers for last three episodes of S9*
[re Misha directing, did he ask you any advice, and can you tell us more about the pie in the face pranks?] I don’t know what you’re talking about. As far as advice, he and I sat down to dinner, this was maybe a couple of weeks before he was supposed to stop prepping, and I unloaded on him as much advice as I could think of that I would have wanted someone to tell me and some advice I did actually get before I shot “Weekend at Bobby’s” and Misha promptly whipped out his phone and writing notes, so I don’t know if any of those things helped him, or whether he was just writing an email to someone and not listening to me, I don’t know. So yeah I just tried to tell him as much as possible, give him kind of an idea of what to expect, but the thing is, you can give someone as much advice as you can possibly give them, and it seems to all either get washed away or be pushed aside because either instinct or personality take over. Luckily, Misha’s a smart guy and he’s also surrounded by people who really know the show and the crew who love him, and the support system he had going, which is the same support system I had going, helped him navigate any treacherous turns.
If Hell freezes over and it does happen and for some reason I do decide to join…whatever it is, I’m sure it will be public knowledge. In fact, you have my word it’ll be public knowledge. If I join, I will not join privately, I will join publicly for all to know and understand. Like ‘okay, I have sold my soul to the Devil and am now on Twitter’.
WILD SPEC re: possession - Abaddon finds out Dean is coming to get her and opts to possess either Sam or Cas in an attempt to protect herself. More likely to be Sam, as a) that's the major plot right now & b) he's also more well known as Dean's weak point. Bonus points if whichever one she doesn't possess is taken hostage and Dean is forced to choose that way. If she's in Sam, Dean will probably go ahead and kill them both. If it's Cas she takes, Dean might refuse, even with the mark's influence
I’m in love with this spec I wanna marry it and have little speculative babies with it.
I actually change my mind on what I said earlier about it not making sense for Sam to be possessed again, or for Dean to kill him, because this is great and I want it.
And Sam didn’t actually get that anti-possession tattoo replaced, did he…?
Dean is not actually gonna kill Sam just because he has a case of demoniasis, though. He’ll just ask Crowley to mud-wrestle Abaddon in Sam’s head.
