The spoilers for the meta episode are coming fast and furious, folks. E! Online previewed when Sam and Dean met Jensen and Jared, and all signs point to the funny.
- The episode “is a smart, self-aware farce reminiscent of the episodes where Sam and Dean became production assistants on the set of a genuinely haunted horror movie and the installment where the boys blipped into TV show universes, including a Grey’s Anatomy parody and a Japanese game show (wherein Sam was literally punched in the nuts).”
- In this “Supernatural,” Jared and Jensen are lightweight actors, and the show is shot in Vancouver (Dean, in a tone of the greatest aggravation: “Dude, we’re not even in America”) and is led by a grandfatherly figure named Bobby Singer.
- Dean is none too happy that Jared married Genevieve: “Wait—you and Ruby? You married fake Ruby!?”
The producers and crew are all heavily featured as well—when “J2″ behave bizarrely for days on end, the transportation guys start whispering that maybe the stars of the show are smuggling drugs in from overseas, and Bobby Singer tells the boys that they have got to stop taking “poppers.”
Sera Gamble is dismissed as the new girl who wouldn’t be taken seriously by misbehaving actors anyway.
Sam and Dean “provide their own delicious take on the lifestyles of well-paid actors Jared and Jensen, their homes, their trailers, their low-rated show, their past appearances on soap operas and their facial expressions in certain photos.”
