‘Supernatural’ Season 7 Spoilers: Robert Singer Talks Leviathan Payoff

2 years ago, by

March 17, 2012

Following Bobby’s death, the hunt for top Leviathan Dick Roman has been intense but annoyingly unsuccessful. As Robert Singer tells EW, that will all change toward the end of the season:

“I will say that I think the end of the season has a satisfying end for the viewers. But like most years, we solve one problem and start another, which is really what we’re doing this year. We were really happy with the villain this year — we thought the head Leviathan was a really great villain. He’ll get paid off by the end of the year.”

Losing everything and the boys being up against a seemingly insurmountable foe is what the writers intended for this season, putting a spin on the norm:

“Having their world shrink, shrink, shrink on them as they were fighting the largest thing they’ve ever fought, that was all something we talked about in the writer’s room early on. We wanted them to be the last cowboys out there and the modern world was closing in on them. We wanted them not as well equipped to fight this battle as they were to fight others. It was them against the world at a certain point.”

Have you liked the Leviathans as Season 7′s Big Bad?

    And i’m a fan too I have all the seasons on blu ray but the show is turning into a teenager show almost every episode is a goofy one I just don’t want my favorite show to become like smallville or like secret circle in 1 tree hill like a dumbass cw show

  • Siramoose71

    no, no character developement…. i mean i like the 1 shots…but i think they just abandones the heaven storyline. and they shoud have broguht lucifer back more..and even death….i thought this was the weakest season since season 3

  • Siramoose71

    just to confirm. i am still a big fan of teh show…but this season was kinda a wash…i mean  honestly, season 6 was great….but this season just didnt have a flow…they never got into what the leviathins were…they were stuck in purgatory from the begining of time…they have no story no history and we dont even know what they are…they are shape shifters that download memories, and eat each other…come one writers….the heaven hell story was the best story of any show i ever watched…bring back the angels, i mean why wont they help fight the leviathins? and where is god..his first creation is running wild n he wont send a weapon or at least a little help to sam and dean? wheres chuck? where is crowley? and why wont he help out more….why cant we see more of what sam went through in hell.?//….likei  said in my previous rant…i mean we know nothing about them as a bg bad, no books have anything about them? how about a hsitory of them episode, or at least why god sent them to purgatory….just that he couldnt control them? and there big plan is to heal the earth? orolly only to eat em…what a lame theme

    Wow I actually honestly agree with what all you guys(girls) are saying. They had a perfect g big or go home story arc with a god like cas and pussed out on a big bad we never heard of or that would get any development or hystory. They killed off characters with no follow ups(when john died he was mentioned all of season 2 but bobby? Only one mention and cas I think they threw him back cause we were pissed andthey realised there writing a runaway train. But now I worry season 8 won’t get picked up ad we wll get a cliffhanger that will ruin an otherwise awesome series(1-6 seasons were good esp 5 but 6 really came around wth he last few episodes from frontierland on even the weird goofy meta episodes fit the story arc. This year there is no real arc besides the often forgotten hell broken wall.) Overall I think this season if aweful and suffers from bad writing(except a few episodes) and now I’m even more worried by this interview that they will just make more questions and problems without answering season 7s.

    I agree with what everyone is saying.  The heaven/hell theme was one of the most unique on any show, something that most writers and networks won’t touch.  This whole season has been pretty “eh.”  I watch it because I want to see what develops and hope it turns back towards it’s old bread and butter.  Also, the last couple of seasons seemed to have way more episodes with actual plot development; not just 5 minutes at the end.

    Wow… all the grammatical errors are just lovely.  If you really have a problem with the leviathan story line, why dont you try reading or doing some research instead of complaining?  The shows execs have stated that everything that they use is based off of some kind of real story or myth.  For instance, the leviathans were some of Gods earlier handiwork.  However, once he realized that all they would cause on the earth was chaos, he banished them (in the shows case to purgatory, a great plot point).  If you do more research, you might also find out that there is another creature possibly more fearsome than the leviathan(though I doubt they would go there).  Yes, this season has shied away from the thrill of progressing the overall story, but with things like Bobby’s death and Lucifer pretty much using Sams brain as a jungle gym, this is been a great season.  We still have plenty of episodes left, and Im sure that there will be a season 8.  Once you get past heaven and hell, you really cant truly out do it so I think they have done excellently so far of trying to at least keep the show interesting.

    Supernatural is my favorite show of all time but there butchering it season 3 wasint all that cuz of the writers strike but what’s the excuse for this season seasons 4 and 5 were the best and those were the angel demon seasons leviathans are not scary at all they make dumb ass jokes and they don’t do anything but eat people and shape shifter actually the weakest things they’ve ever hunted and every episode has been a funny colorfull bright episode and what’s up with michael in the cage are they ever gonna talk about or explain that??? I think the problem is bad writing still trying to appeal to teenagers which was never the base of the show I would hate to see my favorite show crumble because of bad writing do you need to bring back eric kripke she’s not gonna make it much longer

    This season has been terrible, the Leviathans are boring, Bobby was the only reason I tolerated this lame storyline and they killed him off. The only bright spot is there bring Cas back. Why is it so wrong to have a cast of 4. Dean, Sam, Bobby and Cas.

    Calling out someone else’s grammatical errors because you disagree with their opinion is the laziest and lamest form of intelligent debate. 

    Why should the viewer have to do research in order to enjoy the season more? Shouldn’t it work the other way around? The writer’s are supposed to do the research and construct their story in such an interest way that it compels the viewer to want to do discover more. 

    You said it yourself that the season has shied away from the “thrill of progressing the overall story” which is exactly what the previous commenter expressed and seems to be the general consensus of everyone here. 

    Again, it’s a cop-out to say that “once you get past Heaven and Hell, you really can’t truly out do it…” If the writers/producers felt that way, they shouldn’t have continued with the series. Obviously they don’t feel that way but other than a few great one-off episodes, we’ve not really gotten a story in which to invest ourselves. 

    By the way, you need to work on proper capitalization of proper nouns and learn where the apostrophe key is on your keyboard because you missed far too many to go about trying to correct someone else’s grammar.

    I like (hate) the leviathans. I consider them a metaphor for the Republicans (especially the Tea Party). They are on an evil mission to take over America and eat (eliminate) everyone who doesn’t toe the leviathan (conservative) line. Dick Roman is so typical of every hard core, conservative Republican… right down to the suit. It’s his way or the highway. Do as I say or be eaten.
