Normally, I can't stand Sera Gamble interviews.....

Because she makes me just want to scream "Shut up, shut up, shut up!!" sometimes, but I was reading this interview (very, very spoilery, so avoid spoilerphobes!) and I have to admit, the woman knows how fandom works, at least with this bit about bringing on Castiel:

Well, he certainly has been a hit with fans. Were you nervous about bringing him into the show?

No, I wasn't. I saw five minutes of dailies from our season premiere, and I said, "That guy is going to be the biggest thing since Sam and Dean." [Creator and executive producer] Eric [Kripke] and Bob [executive producer Robert Singer] were like, "Well, he's really good, but …" And I was like, "No, you don't understand. Within an hour of this airing there are going to be little avatars of him and there are going to be fans sites about him." And they're like, "You think?" "Yes, I'm positive."

First of all, he has this rock-star entrance. And there's chemistry between him and the boys. And there's a way that his character is positioned that is both ominous and helpful. He doesn't quite threaten the relationship between the brothers, which is always the danger zone for characters we introduce. He's male, which is helpful. And he's played by Misha, who is very talented.

Although, again, can we please stop it with the "Our fangirls are jellas haters!" crap? The reason most of the fans dislike the female characters is because most of the recurring female characters you bring on this show are written shittily and/or poorly acted. I wish someone on this staff would for once take some responsibility for the fact that they've made some serious mistakes in regard to the female characters instead of blaming it all on the fans.

But I agree with the stuff she said in the beginning about Castiel. She was right about that! LOL!
