1 Angel Pays For Sex Shocker!!! on Fri Aug 07, 2009 7:59 am


Supernatural creator Eric Kripke had plenty of fun Sunday afternoon jesting with Comic-Con fans who were anxious to glean every morsel of info they could about the show's upcoming fifth season. This is, after all, the season in which Lucifer (Lost's Mark Pellegrino) returns to Earth, as the provocative Season 4 ending teased his arrival with Sam and Dean Winchester standing at the entry portal, unprepared.

So with the darkest of all angels about to make his big entrance through the floor, what can fans expect from Season 5? Lots of cool stuff, according to Kripke, writers Sera Gamble and Ben Edlund, and cast members Misha Collins and Jim Beaver—all of whom were present for the Comic-Con Supernatural panel.

After showing a clip from the Season 5 premiere, in which Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) set a house trap for three unscrupulous angels, Kripke talked about portraying Lucifer in innovative ways that haven't been seen before. This involved an approach being dubbed "herbal teas and fluffy pillows," or more accurately, making the character sympathetic—a direct reference to the beginning of Milton's "Paradise Lost". Kripke said: "He was essentially betrayed, so in some ways he can be viewed sympathetically ... if we can make the angels dicks, Lucifer can by sympathetic."

According to Kripke, even thought the apocalypse is nigh, this season is actually more optimistic, because Sam and Dean come back together...with the theme being that family saves the world. And while he admits that it might seem a bit Pollyanna in tone, it serves as the balance to the show's relentlessly dark theme.

Sera Gamble, meanwhile, believes that the apocalypse actually has its funny moments, with Ben Edlund supporting her assertion, joking that in one episode there's a scene that features 22 people in a line-up (akin to a Comic-Con lineup, perhaps?), casually waiting to be hung.

And according to Kripke, the writers had a lot of fun with Castiel (Misha Collins). The angel character was always written as a being who hadn't walked among humans — as a human — for thousands of years, and thus humanity would seem alien to him. But in Season 5, he's back among them regularly again. Collins says that "he's [Castiel] lost a bit of his angel mojo...along with some friends. He has a pretty ambitious mission he's on—he's emotionally cut off from heaven and a bit afraid." So Castiel must learn to function as a human again because he is not an ethereal being anymore.

And, of course, that creates more of the aforementioned funny moments, as the writers play with the 'fish out of water' scenario, i.e. according to Kripke, in one episode, Dean takes Castiel to a whorehouse.

In one of the more provocative reveals, the writers discussed episode four, which sees the story move five years into the future, when the height of the apocalypse is upon us and devastation is everywhere...punctuated by Sara Palin as president (the humor is peppered everywhere, indeed...be it explicit or implicit).
