guys, I was reading Alex Harrington’s interview on 9x14 Captives and
and then he answered to some fan tweets
and now that I’m looking at 9x14 stills
Read on for exclusive details on the key players populating the offshoot (all of whom will be introduced in this season’s 20th episode of Supernatural).
ENNIS ROTH | The de-facto star of the potential series, Ennis is “likeable, strong-willed, resolute, with a strong sense of justice.” He’s the son of a cop who grew up in poverty. He’s en route to the police academy himself when someone he is close to is murdered — presumably by some kind of monster. He meets up with Sam and Dean and “learns the staggering truth” that Chicago is run by five families of monsters (including, but perhaps not limited to, werewolves and shape shifters). And with that, a new monster-hunter is born. Fun fact: Producers are looking to fill this role with an African-American actor in his early 20s.
DAVID HAYDEN | A shape-shifter from one of Chicago’s ruling monster families. He’s been living as a human for some time, but a tragedy propels him back into the life. David is in his early 20s.
MARGO HAYDEN | David’s “professional, strong-willed, determined, ambitious” shape-shifter sister. She’s an “ex-punk rocker gone corporate” who sets out to be the new head of the family in the wake of a tragedy. Margo is in her early 20s.
VIOLET DURANT | A werewolf and part of the wealthy, powerful Durant family. In a twist right out of West Side Story, the early-twentysomething is hot for family rival David (see above), but their love is forbidden.
JULIAN DURANT | Violet’s “savagely handsome, strong, arrogant” twentysomething brother and Ennis’ arch nemesis.
FREDDIE COSTA | A world-weary cop in his 30s, Freddie has a soft spot in his heart for Ennis (he knew his dad back in the day). Fun fact: Freddie’s got a secret.

Ok, bear with me for a moment. Let’s pretend that the similarity between Castiel and Colette is NOT deliberate. It’s hard, but try.
In a crowded ~40 minutes episode, it’s not possible to give the romance between Colette and Cain a lot of screentime. Shortcuts are necessary. In a few minutes, we need to understand why Cain is retired, and how someone could bring the scariest butcher of hell onto the path of salvation. (Oh, like Castiel and - NO, no parallels now! Bad!)
So what does the show do?
- Colette is watching over Cain, still.
- Colette is long gone, but he still prays to her, even though he can’t be sure that she’ll hear. Because FAITH.
- Cain was not a monster. He sold himself to save his brother. There was goodness in him all along, and Colette was the one who saw that.
- Colette was possessed by something evil, and Cain was forced to try and kill her. But the black evilness killed her first.
- Colette forgave his sins because she loved him. And his cool beard. She even forgave him when he was forced to hurt her.
- Cain ultimately decides that Colette was wrong. He is a monster. And he needs her to turn away, because he can’t let her see him like this. Maybe because he thinks he doesn’t deserve her, or because he doesn’t want Colette’s opinion of him to be tarnished. We don’t know.
So, even if nobody on the writing staff was consciously trying to make Cain and Colette so very similar to Dean and Cas, we still have to acknowledge that they were trying to portray an incredible love story, strong enough to last centuries, to make a faithless demon pray, and to redeem a monster. They have to do it quickly and efficiently enough so that their love is immediately apparent to the audience. And this is the fucking shit they came up with.
But Dean and Cas is all in our heads, right???
