Supernatural filmed scenes for episode 1205 with Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. Also included bonus pics of Jensen and Misha Collins.
Back in September I stumbled across 2 sets for Supernatural filming. While my timing at the 1st set where Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles were both filming was bad (missed them filming outside two different times.).
I did see them show up to their 2nd location, and managed a few pics of Jared going in (Jensen was 1st, so I didn't have time to react to him going in).
Included is a couple pics of the buildings that they renamed, including the coincidentally enough named Lucille's Diner, which is funny considering the pics/convo Jensen had this week with a certain star of a series featuring his former TV dad.
which garnered a reply from the man who is now Negan on The Walking Dead where he carries around a bat named Lucille.
the pair exchanged a couple more jabs at each other publicly after that.
Since there was so few photos from this location, I added a couple pics from past encounters with Misha Collins and Jensen to fill out the set a bit more, hope you enjoy.
Supernatural airs Thursday nights on The CW.

THIS POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR EPISODE(S) OF SUPERNATURAL SEASON 11 (Probably around ep 5 or 6 or 7). If you have not yet seen these episodes and do not want to see or read any possible spoilers to them. Do not continue.
In late August and early September I caught up with Supernatural shooting a couple times. They COULD be for the same episode, or completely different episodes. I never spent enough time at either location to get a read on where they were in the filming schedules for the season.
The first location was in North Vancouver on a quiet side street. I know little about the shoot except for the face that Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester walks out of a drive way into the street where a couple of emergency vehicles are. I have been led to believe Jensen Ackles was also on set for the scene, but I never confirmed that (I thought I saw him at the wrap of the scene leaving, but it was too dark to be completely sure).
A short while later the crew moved a block down the street to a church that they had redesigned to look like the parking lot of a biker bar. When I heard no primary cast were going to be there for the scene, I took a couple pics of the signs they put up and left on the last bus out of there for the night to get home at a reasonable hour.
A week later, I caught them downtown. This time they were shooting in an alley just off of Granville Street and it involved Misha Collins as Castiel doing a scene where he was crouched over top of a man laying on the ground.
This night was pretty busy for me as I had 2 film sets I was working on. So I didn't get to stick around there long. But still long enough to run into Misha, along with a few lucky fans that were there as he went for a snack break.
Misha chatted with the fans there, and told us a "worst restaurant" story about 1 of the places they once filmed at in Chinatown. When I asked him the name of the place so I would know never to go there, he said "unfortunately I don't remember.....which has caused me to avoid the whole area all together". He then told me he would see me "next week" which I then told him I wouldn't be in town at that time and he said "well, I guess I wont then." and he was off to grab his snacks and go back to work.

Supernatural start shooting season 11 - episode 3 with director Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and guest star Ruth Connell
Supernatural season 11 had a couple days of shooting in downtown Vancouver for its 1st episode (the 3rd episode of the season) to shoot this season.
With the shows star Jensen Ackles again directing an episode, the 3rd episode of the season was being shot prior to the 1st one to give the director & shows star enough time to do his job on it as he juggles to jobs. Donning a fairly un-Dean Winchester like Hawaiian shirt and beach hat, I assumed what I was looking at was "Director Jensen" and not him in "Dean Winchester" attire..... turns out, I was mistaken. When I saw his stunt double also wearing the same garb later, I realized.... Deans traded in the jackets & fed suits for some beach wear. When I tweeted a photo of it that day, a few fans replied with the "sand between our toes" line that Dean says last season to Sam. Perhaps Dean got to experience that.... guess we'll have to wait to see.
On this particular day, a few cast members were seen (some in unofficial capacities). Season 10 troublemaker Rowena, played by Ruth Connell was back, but with a little wardrobe change for the day..... as she was sporting blonde hair.
Crowleys mom appeared to be doing 2 scenes there, 1 with each of the Winchesters. Firstly with Dean (either Jensen or his stunt double, our angle never quite gave us a good look) where she seems to point her finger at him and he goes flying. A bit later, a scene with Sam as Jared Padalecki roughly drags Ruth as Rowena away by her arm.
A lot of the time on this shoot it was hard to tell when they might have been rolling and when they may have been in between takes. Other times however, they were clearly on a break. During 1 of their breaks, former Supernatural guest star Mitch Pileggi stopped by with his family and introduce his kids to Jensen & Jared. The trio chatted for awhile while they re-set the scene. Funny enough, I was unaware I had even seen him till well after the fact when I was going through my pics & saw him in some of them.
Eventually Jared wrapped and left. Shortly after Ruth left. Lastly Jensen left, as he not only wrapped that location but had to head to the next spot where the crew was already preparing the next scene.
After this shoot, the crew packed up & moved to another location a few blocks away for an interior shoot that had another random former guest star sighting, and a night shoot in an alley that I will have more on in another post.

Supernatural will be back with their 11th season this fall on The CW starting October 7,2015
Supernatural shoots scenes for episoe 1015 with Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Travis Aaron Wade
Better late than never? Right? Lately I have fallen quite behind on posting my blogs. Like QUITE behind.
Perfect example, this post is for episode 1015 "The Things They Carried". The episode aired more than a month ago, so that gives you some idea how behind I am on some things.
Anyways, on this particular day they filmed scenes at a house (that I now know to be the house that the wife & baby of the army guy the boys & guest star Travis Aaron Wade were looking for in the ep)
Early in the day Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki shot scenes inside with the baby & the Michelle Morgan. Once those scenes were done, they waited for it to get dark and moved to doing exterior scenes with Jared, Jensen & Travis.
Those scenes of course include the one where we see Cole in the Impala with Sam & Dean. A scene I tweeted about at the time, which angered more than a couple Castiel fanaticals to say the least. In the scene they drop Cole off where his truck was parked in front of the soldiers house... which we know how that turned out now.
In typical SPN crew fashion (mainly you know who), efforts to try & block me from getting pics of things were made once the person in question was aware of my existence. But, as you can see, I still snagged a few here & there.
Supernatural is taking part again in this years May madness tournament, as a show, and several characters in the character tournament. You can vote on the current match ups HERE.

Supernatural airs Wednesday nights on The CW, with the season finale scheduled for May 20th, 2015.
Supernatural shoots scenes for season 10 with Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard
Better late than never, right fans?
Here is some pics of SPN shooting scenes for an episode that already aired. I believe it was 1011. I sometimes forget sets till after they have aired then go "oh yeah, I have pics of that".. well, heres 1 of those times.
First up was pics from the alley behind a bar on Hastings street that they have used MANY times. In the scene was Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles & Mark Sheppard as Sam, Dean & Crowley.
The tight fit of the alley and the sightlines needed for the camera meant I was really unable to see much or any of the filming, but I got several pics of the group shortly before they called rolling or shortly after they called cut.
This is of course the same night Zachari Levi came to visit his buddy Jared on set.... unfortunately, this happened just shortly before I was there. I scanned the crew several times, but never saw him around....perhaps he was hiding deep in a tent somewhere staying warm since it was very cold & damp out.
After the alley scenes were shot, they moved out from of the bar to shoot scenes with Misha Collins as Castiel.
The scene was short and pretty simple with Cas walking to the Casmobile while talking on the phone.
The day before this shoot I happened to run into an SPN guest star at the airport. At the time I didn't know who it was...but after seeing the episodes she was in, I now know ti to be Kathryn Love Newton, aka - Jimmy Novak's (Cas's meatsuit) daughter Claire.
Supernatural airs Tuesday nights after The Flash on The CW in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
Supernatural Season 10 premieres tonight - Here is a few pics of Jensen Ackles and guest star Travis Aaron Wade shooting scene for an upcoming episode
THIS POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR AN EPISODE OF "SUPERNATURAL" FROM SEASON 10 - If you do not want to see possible spoilers prior to the episodes airing, DO NOT continue reading, or viewing the photos below.
Supernatural returns tonight with its season 10 premiere.
This season we will hopefully find out what has/will happen with Dean Winchester after Crowley awoke the sleeping hunter at the end of season 9 to the shock of fans, to reveal the fact he is now a demon.
The "Deanmon" story line I suspect will play out for awhile, after all it is a show that is not shy about beating a tired story to death long after its best before date. But HEY, maybe the writers will shock me for once and wrap this up well before the mid-season mark (HA!).
One thing IS certain about season 10... they have not been seen around much for filming. I have only come across the sets for the show twice this season. Once waaaayyy out in Surrey (a place I try to avoid...but to prove a point to a few psycho nutjobs... I went out there) and barely saw anything out there the day I was there. I managed 1 "ok" pic of Jensen and Jared there.
A few weeks later, after I returned from a trip I ran into their set only blocks from my house, in daylight. What a rare treat.
They were filming scenes for what I suspect was episode 7 (COULD be 6 or 8.. I never did find out which # it was for certain) with Jensen Ackles in an alley, gun drawn on a man that I was later told was Travis Aaron Wade who is playing a character named Cole, a hunter that is hunting Dean now that hes a demon.
Here are the pics I managed. Early on in their shoot we were allowed reasonably close to the set for a couple takes (at least close enough I was able to tell with my naked eye that Jensen was there) but were soon moved because we were "in the shot" to another entire block away. While they were technically right about it, where we moved to would also technically be "in shot" and the several people who were NOT extras just hanging out in the park that was in the background werent asked to move... just us watching.
Oh well, minor inconvenience. Still managed a few, less awesome shots of the scene still even from there. I also added 1 pic of Jensen and Jared Padalecki from the shoot in August.
Supernatural returns TONIGHT October 7, 2014 on The CW, it will follow another Vancouver shot series we cover "The Flash". You can see some pics of that show HERE if you want to see what thats going to be about.

With spring in full stride, there is not a lot to report from Vancouver for Supernatural filming obviously.
The new season, their 10th, will begin in July. Till then, I have a few odds & ends left over from the past 2 years that I never used for whatever reason in the past.
A few from their fan conventions they have here yearly of Misha Collins, Jim Beaver, DJ Qualls & others.
Also, a few shots of Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles returning from Chicago after shooting the failed backdoor pilot for Bloodlines, which was episode 20 of this past season. Plus Misha Collins leaving town during a break.
Lastly some departing shots of Mark Sheppard and Jensen Ackles as they left Vancouver at the end of season 9.
So first up... a few old shots from past Convention weekends.
I cant be sure, but I think I have managed to see Misha Collins out & about almost every con weekend here. Some shots here from 2012, and 2013 of Castiel roaming the city during the weekend.
As well Jim Beaver stops to talk to some fans in the courtyard.
DJ Qualls grabs a snack in his downtime.
While I personally will never support these conventions, it is still cool for those of you with no other way to ever see these stars to have the chance I guess. Vancouver being the hometown of the show always seems to nab a pretty decent roster.
A few months ago I caught up with Misha Collins as he left town during Christmas break. Below are a few photos from that encounter.
As well, a few photos of Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles returning to Vancouver after filming episode 20 in Chicago. The episode, which was intended to be a backdoor pilot for a spin off that got axed needed a few shots of them in Chicago, so the pair left for 2 days of shooting.
Upon returning, I asked both of them how the filming for that went and they both had similar replies....cold. Apparently, the mild Vancouver winters had not prepared them properly for the real winters that Chicago can have, and both of them were less than excited with having to work in those condition.
When I joked that it probably made them appreciate Vancouver's weather a bit more, they both were pretty quick to agree.
Last batch of photos is of the post-season 9 departures of the cast.
First up was Mark Sheppard. The man who plays Crowley was in a good mood upon finishing his season 9 filming. When I told him I hoped he would be back for season 10, he played it coy & acted as if he didn't already know Crowley survived.
A little while later I caught up with Jensen Ackles for the final time of the season.
He was also in a great mood. The man who plays Dean Winchester seemed pretty happy to have some time off. Seemed excited to finally get some time to spend with his new daughter, Justice Jay whom he rarely saw for more than a weekend throughout most of the season.
He asked us if we got Jared leaving that morning. Both my buddy and I were disappointed to learn we picked the wrong flight to cover for him. But also thankful at least Jensen let us know so we didn't waste time waiting on him either. Just wish he had told us BEFORE he started signing.. I would have focused on solo items, instead of duo items that I now need to get Jared on eventually. Oh well.
So that's it for my SPN photo dump.
I MIGHT do a Season 9 review sometime soon. I've started doing reviews, episodic, seasonal or complete series ones. Although so far I only really have 1 review up (for the How I Met Your Mother series finale). But I have started writing an entire S9 review...perhaps I'll have it finished before they start filming season 10.
As always, you can check out my Supernatural autographs gallery for any of the signed items obtained over the past few seasons I still have.
See you soon season 10.
