All About ‘Baby’: How ‘Supernatural’ Pulled Off the Impala Episode.

A new outtake from the show gives fans a glimpse inside the real road trip conversations happening between stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Now in its 11th season (!!) this popular series follows the Winchester brothers (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) as they continue to fight all sorts of evil ghouls, monsters and beasties.

While Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Ackles) dealt with this freaky “Children of the Corn” child, Castiel (Misha Collins) went on a zombie-like escapade, almost killing Dean and a girl (Masae Day), before Sam was able to force Rowena (Ruth Connell) to reverse her damn spell.While the star of the latest “Supernatural” episode — “Baby” — was undoubtedly the Impala, there was one familiar face that surely delighted longtime fans of the series.Supernatural hosted a family reunion of sorts during Wednesday night’s Impala-themed hour when Sam had a vision of the younger version of his dad, as played by occasional guest-star Matt Cohen — except we found out it wasn’t really John Winchester telling him, “The Darkness is coming… God helps those who help themselves.” (As to who really appeared to Sam — could it be the holy deity himself? — that mystery lives on as the boys hunt.) “It was fun for me to play that part of Sam,” star Jared Padalecki says during a recent visit to the show’s Vancouver set. “Sam’s not often really caught off guard like that.

Few shows produce the “and now for something completely different” effect quite like “.” This is a show that continues to do a great job time and time again when it comes to changing gears from one sort of episode to another. In the episode, aptly titled “Baby,” the boys hear about a killing in Eugene and set off to find what they believe is a werewolf-vampire hybrid, which Dean refers to as a “werepire.” Fans couldn’t get enough of Dean and Sam on the road, sleeping in the car, having heart-to-heart talks about relationships, and singing Bob Seger’s “Night Moves,” not to mention the car wash scene, valet joy ride and Castiel’s phone calls about “Orange Is the New Black.” Jensen added, “It came to attaching the cameras to the car and rigging them so they wouldn’t move and then they would be like, ‘Okay, see you later’ and [Jared] and I would take off with no crew and no nothing.” Due to the unusual nature of the shoot, Ackles admitted there is probably a ton of b-roll of the guys just “shooting the s**t.” It wasn’t all smooth sailing.

It’s an exciting way for the show to continually change things up and make them different, and a great example is coming with next week’s “Thin Lizzie.” Following us being treated to an episode this past week that revolved for the most part around Sam and Dean spending time in the Impala, we’re touching on the Lizzie Borden story moving forward (at least sort of). Wednesday, Oct. 28, on The CW. “Chicago PD,” 9 p.m. (NBC): In a special 2-hour episode, Ruzek’s future with the unit is in question after a botched undercover job; a corpse is discovered in an SUV; Lindsay and Halstead move forward with their relationship. “Ghost Hunters,” 9 p.m. (Syfy): Investigating Southern Vermont College in Bennington, Vt., where the legend of a love triangle and suicides could be responsible for paranormal activity. “Nashville,” 10 p.m. (ABC): When video of Juliette getting in an altercation with a fan goes viral, Jeff takes advantage of the situation; Maddie misses Colt; Rayna and Markus disagree about his sound. “American Horror Story: Hotel,” 10 p.m. (FX): John receives an invitation to attend an exclusive Devil’s Night Soiree; Alex tries to diagnose Holden’s strange condition. For Padalecki, having Cohen back on set was a fun little family reunion, even if only for a scene. “I love Matt. ‘Supernatural’ is such a unique show because even though he hasn’t been on the show in five years, we still see each other several times a year,” the actor tells Zap2it and a group of outlets on the “Supernatural” set. “He’s a buddy, he just became a dad.

Ackles said, “I’m driving on an actual road and I’m driving a real car and I have real live passengers and my focus, my focal, is completely gone so I’m using my peripheral vision to drive the car.” Then there was Padalecki’s touching scene with Cohen, which the production wanted to keep a secret. “What’s funny is that on the call sheet his name – they didn’t want to put Matt Cohen so they put Leonard Cohen in case anyone picked it up. When a local man, Len (guest star Jared Gertner), tells them he saw a little girl around the B&B around the time of the murders, the brothers realize Amara (guest star Yasmeene Ball) may be responsible.” So there you have it: Further proof that this upcoming episode is also going to feature at least one element of the season-long arc regarding the Darkness in Amara. While we are very much excited to see what is coming up in this story, it does still feel like there is a whole lot more coming up in this story than there appears to be on the surface.

Soon after, Dean confessed that he dreams about their dad often — only Sam was convinced this “dream” of his wasn’t a dream at all, but a message. The guest cast was phenomenal, and I had a great time.” Padalecki loved the scene where Sam wakes up to find Dean’s pulled the car over to sleep and they have a heart to heart about his vision, while Jensen thought it was a “cool glimpse into the Winchesters and how they travel.

How’s the wife?’” “He’s a great actor, and he brought something great to the character,” Padalecki continues. “It was a really neat thing to do to use him instead of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who I also love, because it puts Sam in an even more awkward position.

It’s about us, and we’re going to lose all of this if we don’t join forces and man up.’” Ackles notes that struggle will mostly focus on “the brothers and those immediately around them” like Castiel, Crowley and Rowena. “It’s all these different players in the game and where they’re going to go to find safety — or if there is any safety,” he previews. And it won’t just be ghoulpires shedding light on the mysterious new villainness. “In and around Episode 9 and 10, we’ll have some other cool characters that have some interesting things to say about The Darkness,” Padalecki teases. After Dean picked up Sam and an unconscious woman who was attacked by monsters, he received a phone call from Castiel that they were actually dealing with a ghoul-pire, not a were-pire.
