Over the last two seasons, “Supernatural” brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have been drifting apart, to put it mildly. In the war of demons vs. angels, Sam is Lucifer’s most essential weapon, and Dean is heaven’s only hope.
Talk about sibling rivalry.
With the tension that’s been building between the brothers, fans want to know what it’ll take to repair Sam and Dean’s relationship. Zap2it was on the scene at Creation Entertainment’s Salute to Supernatural convention in Los Angeles to get some answers from Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.
“For Sam and Dean to be like they were in Season 1? It’s like drug addiction,” Ackles says. “You have to hit rock bottom before you can get back up.”
“I think they have to have a big clash to work it all out,” Padalecki agrees. “We need to see them be apart for a while. And then we’ll just
wait ’til September to see episode one!”
Is that a hint that the Season 5 finale might not end with Sam and Dean on friendly terms? Ackles fills us in on Sam and Dean’s upcoming fight scene, explaining that it’s easier to do the choreographed fights with Jared because after five years of working together, they can easily read each other’s cues.
“It’s always good to go up against Jared, especially during fight scenes,” he says. “Especially since we know each other so well. I won’t give anything away, but the other day Sam and Dean had a bit of a tussle.”
“Rock bottom!” Padalecki interrupts teasingly. Uh-oh! Don’t worry, fans, you’re not the only ones who want Sam and Dean to reconcile.
“I don’t think it’ll ever be like it was!” Jensen wails, pretending to get emotional and wiping away imaginary tears. “So much has changed!”
