Jared video interview--spoilers (?)

skip the first 2:30 mins if you are not into actor gossip

The rest is mainly show talk, and Sam's storyline sounds pretty much exactly like it's been since Comic Con, even though they are well into shooting the 10th episode. Jared, for once, doesn't sound all that enthused about it lol

Any good Mishalecki fodder? (I can't play video right now...)

Re: Jared video interview--spoilers (?)

Nope. Repeats the same old stuff about how when Sam and Dean look for each other they cause "collateral" damage or whatever, so Sam said whatever and "went back to the pilot" lol

He looks a bit tired of selling it, to be honest :(

I can't watch video right now, but Jared not sounding enthused is giving me mixed feelings. On the one hand, I haven't really agreed with his points of enthusiasm over the last few seasons, which makes me think that a storyline he isn't that into might be something I'll really like. On the other hand, that theory only works assuming his enthusiasm was genuine, and not manufactured. He might have been bored with what he's been getting for a long time, and just now tired of hiding it, in which case nothing is likely to change.

Just in case that sounds like an attempt to start actor gossip, what interests me here is Sam's storyline. Jared's reactions matter only in how they could possibly reflect on that storyline.

Jared not sounding enthused

Withhold judgment until you see it. He's mellow throughout the interview, including the parts about his personal life. With that as a baseline, he doesn't seem particularly unenthused when he's talking about the show.

Jared does really seem to be trying to justify the direction they are taking Sam. I feel kinda bad for him.

I don't get what Carver is doing with Sam and his story line this season. The interviewer straight up says that she isn't so sure about Sam's actions and that they seem OOC and Jared admits that, yeah, they realized people may not like the direction of Sam...so why do it? Ugh.

Jared makes it sound like it was so easy for Sam to brush his hands clean of Dean. Like it was nothing. Like it wasn't his brother, but like Garth. It is baffling.

I am so over the "Sam had nobody!" This season alone we know they are bringing back Garth and the hunter from the mental hospital in Season 5. It's such a weak excuse. He had people he could turn to. He just chose not to.

And then Jared says stuff like this about Dean "He could've been in Missouri having a burger" and it totally contradicts the whole "Sam thought Dean was dead thing".

Jared doesn't seem into it, but I can't blame the guy if we're 10 episodes in and there doesn't seem to be any big reveal. He says Sam's entire motivation is the quest thing, nothing else.

My guess? Carver just doesn't know what to do with him, and is unintentionally doing Sam a disservice because of not knowing how to handle his issues. Or he dislikes the character and is deliberately neglecting Sam through an active lack of interest. I'm going with one of the first two options, but the fact that so much of what has been done with Sam so far is pretty wildly OOC does make a tiny part of me lean toward the second option.

Clearly there's something more about Sam's storyline this season, I think we'll see what's wrong with him soon. Obviously they can't spoil the whole plot.

Just wait and see.

Bullshit. I can't believe anyone still buys this line.

Here it is typed out:

I'm sad there's nothing new there. It mostly comes across as character justification, except he's basically repeating all the same stuff everyone's said in the first place...

did sam have crying scene or something before this interview? jared looks very tired&red eyed. he kind of looks like someone who had to shed some tears

Re: Jared video interview--spoilers (?)

even though they are well into shooting the 10th episode

If they are shooting 8.10, they have received and read the scripts for at least 8.14 / probably 8.15 since Ty already knows he's not in the episodes 8.11-8.15.
So, no real storyline for Sam or explanation of the OOCs till 8.15, while ALL the other characters gets lots of cool stuff to do (going by the spoilers), and whole episodes centred on them :\ Poor Jared. It's like being thrown under a bus in slow motion and being forced to wave and smile all the way down for the audience (which in this fandom nowadays consists to a large percentage of Sam-eating hyenas).

You know what? I really hate the way they are selling this (and it's not just an "oh, it's Jared" thing; I hate the way Carver has been selling it and the way Sam's stuff comes through in Jensen's interviews), but I am going to take the wise advice of the "go by what's on screen, not interviews" nonnies from yesterday, take a deep breath, and go on watching. 8.1 and 8.3 both showed me a Sam who is very, very different from the doesn't give a fuck Sam people are complaining about. I'm not happy that they went this direction, but so far, in the episodes devoted to Sam and Dean stuff, they are making it work for me emotionally, even though there are still some WTF plot logic things.

What I hate about this is that in shows is normal to hate characters, but usually those are characters you love to hate but with Sam people are hating him and attacking him. Yes, we're in fandom where reactions are exaggerated but I think is time to worry if the people writing the articles openly hate Sam and ask Jared about it.
