Sam & Dean & Cas? Supernatural’s New Demon-Hunting Trio in Downtown Vancouver for Ep. 8×08
Whatever happened to Castiel in Purgatory, he didn’t look so cuckoo-bananas last night in downtown Vancouver filming a scene for episode eight of the eighth season with his BFFs Sam & Dean. The scene itself was pretty simple: the trio get out of the Impala and walk over to a crime scene at the Lumbermens Building on Richards Street turned Oklahoma Bank of Commerce. Simple and quick. But in between takes, we witnessed all kinds of hijinks.
Jared Padalecki (Sam) and Jensen Ackles (Dean) kept howling with laughter in the Impala. I blame Misha Collins (Castiel), the shadowy figure in the back seat. All three have a comedic gift, but Collins is the true comic. I will miss his cuckoo-bananas Cas if he’s recovered his sanity in season eight.
On the way back to the Impala, Misha Collins (Castiel) kept staring up at something in the building opposite. He even pointed at it, bringing Jared Padalecki (Sam) into it. [UPDATE: That's the prop cartoon black hole in the wall that Dean puts his hand through.]
Of course with all their antics, the only decent photo I got of Jensen Ackles was in serious mode, even though he seened just as loose as the other two, especially when he chased a passing bus up the street to entertain them.
After the scene wrapped, Misha Collins (Castiel) surprised us by walking up to the fan section on the sidewalk to meet us One overjoyed fan told him she’d named her cat “Catsiel” in his honour. His visit took us all by surprise and we were a bit tongue-tied because Supernatural stars are usually whisked away the minute there’s a break in filming by Jared and Jensen’s bodyguard Clif.
Here’s a photo of the Oklahoma Bank of Commerce in the daytime.
Supernatural airs Wednesday nights now at 9 p.m. on The CW in the U.S. and CTVtwo in Canada.
