Winchesters Go Western

Here’s a ‘Supernatural’ exclusive for you: The Winchesters will be visiting the Old West this season.

“You may see the guys in Stetsons. You may see Jared [Padalecki] on horseback. It could happen,” Gamble said. “I’ve already talked to Jensen [Ackles] about it, he’s excited about it and I think the guys are going to have a lot of fun with it.”

“We’ve always wanted to do one,” she added. “Supernatural is a Western. We’ve always wanted to find a way to get Sam and Dean into the Old West, at least for part of an episode, and the main obstacle was always how to do it produceably.”

Fans who’ve hoped to see the Winchesters out West “should write a love letter to [executive producer Robert Singer] and to Jim Michaels, our line producer, and to Diane [Widas], who handles our costumes. Just to be able to do something like that on the kind of moderate television budget that we have, it’s a testament to their craftiness,” Gamble noted. The episode, which will probably be the eighteenth of the season, is being penned by ‘Supernatural’ writers Andrew Dabb and Daniel Loflin.

Gamble calls another upcoming outing “the craziest meta episode of all time.” Yes, ‘Supernatural’ will go mega-meta in an episode called ‘The French Mistake,’ which airs Feb. 18 (the title of the episode will be familiar to fans of the classic comedy ‘Blazing Saddles’).

“We have an episode in which Sam and Dean find themselves in essentially … to shorthand it, we’ll call it a parallel world,” Gamble explained. In the world in which they find themselves, “there is no magic, there is a television show called ‘Supernatural’ and everyone seems convinced that they are actors named Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles.”

“It appears that there are actors having a psychotic break on a set and the producers don’t know what to do, basically,” she noted. “The dailies are fall-on-the-floor hilarious. The guys are so funny in this episode. And, you know, meta is not to everyone’s taste, but I enjoy a nice slice of meta.”
