okay i’ll bite because everyone seems to have forgot: misha and jensen not being on the goodbye twitter cw_spn video. what’s all this then. like i would somehow understand misha not being included for Reasons but they didn’t include jensen too. WHAT’S. ALL. THIS. THEN
I keep forgetting about this and every time I am reminded of it it is SO FUNNY to me because like, we keep talking about Jensen’s sexy silence, and Misha’s awkward careful word choices and obvious discomfort talking about it, and then there is Jared Padalecki, just suffering from a severe case of verbal diarrhea no matter how much you just want him to shut up…
Then you are reminded of this video, with Jared so compliant to his CW employers wishes, celebrating this show that ended so terribly, whereas Misha and Jensen were just like NOPE fuck that shit, we’re out of here. No more shitty homophobic network for us!
Just its SO LOUD. ASJKHJDSAJKDHSJ
I don’t think it’s just the homophobic part for them. I mean they’re both kinda misinformed about what’s the lgbtq+ fans want.
But Misha has been mistreated and humiliated by the writers and producers. He said in a video with Ruth during the filming of 15x01 that they called him a bad actor. They told him they wouldn’t write Cas in the special episodes because they favored quality over quantity. They refused to aknowledge Cas as a main while Misha was saving their views. He was cut from the final.
Jensen on the other side, they made him do some weird and dangerous shit. They wouldn’t listen to his opinions on his character even when he was right. And it happened often. For the muppet fight with Lucifer. For demon!dean. For purgatory. For the final. They were basically using his talent while treating him like his opinions and valid questions were shit. And also, they favored Jared and since then they haven’t interacted publicly like the friends they’re supposed to be.
Supernatural was a toxic environment. And I think Misha and Jensen just regret a lot of things about it. But they might want to move on, and they signed a silent deal so they can’t talk shit about the show. If they have nothing positive to say, they have nothing to say.
