Before we go into why I think continuity is a good thing in last week’s episode of the hit CW Network series Supernatural, let’s take a look at a little continuity in real life involving Supernatural fandom. We all know that Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are the two hot lead actors who play Sam and Dean Winchester on Supernatural. We know that fans are always looking for opportunities to talk to and interact with the guys and they keep hoping that one of the plethora of social networking sites that pop up under the actor’s names really does belong to them. This usually prompts one or both of the actors to make statements at conventions that they do not have Myspace, Facebook or Twitter accounts. Their friends and co-workers who do have these kinds of accounts have repeatedly stated that the guys do not have them.
The continuity of this denial has never been broken and, unfortunately the fakes also continue to pop up and one in particular on Twitter became more than just an annoyance. This prompted Clif Kosterman, the bodyguard for Ackles and Padalecki to join twitter in an attempt to oust the fakers. It has also prompted the two Supernatural leads to make a video stating once more that they do not have any social networking sites and asking fans to not be fooled by imposters.
