Working on an upcoming Supernatural episode spoofing vampires, the CW thriller’s producers are well aware that they are sticking their necks out: How can they parody the genre without ridiculing a little show called The Vampire Diaries? For starters, you never refer to that series in your script.

“I don’t think there’s currently a [Vampire Diaries] mention in the episode,” says Supernatural EP Sera Gamble. “But part of the thing is finding a balance between, say, [showing] a poster from the actual show and having Sam and Dean really speak their minds. We don’t want to offend.”

To that end, Gamble suggests, if the Brothers Winchester end up “saying something disparaging” about a particular fang-centric franchise—like, for instance, Twilight—the target will be “slightly fictionalize[d].”

Besides, in this case, Gamble insists that mockery is the sincerest form of flattery. “I think The Vampire Diaries is a really good show,” she insists. “And I’ve seen all the Twilight movies. I’m certainly not coming at this from a place of feeling superior to them. I have great respect.”
Supe‘s fifth season kicks off Friday, Sept. 24
