Sigh, worrying continues...

Before the S5 Finale aired, I hinted at the fact that I would actually be fine with Bobby dying. I explained in a PM to a member of my flist, that I would mainly be alright with it, because I am sick of WORRYING that he is going to die. Haha...so, that being said...

People are posting that 6x03 or 6x04  (the episode they are filming first, and the episode that Jensen is directing) is called "Weekend at Bobby's"....so, now I'm back to thinking that Bobby is going to die. Just because the title could only be a play on "Weekend at Bernie's."  Still, that's an awful flimsy thing to base any speculation on. Especially since if they were going to kill Bobby for good, they'd probably do it in a season opener (like John) or the mid-season finale (like Ellen and Jo) or a season finale (like Dean.)

Still, this solves the question of how much Jensen is going to have to direct AND act - sounds like it's going to be a Bobby-centric episode, with hopefully copious amounts of Sam poured on top (because I love me some Sam), and perhaps only a side-order of Dean. (Hmmm...I think it's lunch time).

I'm getting all excited. I'm even just excited for the day that I know they are both back in town and working on the show. I'll have to keep my eyes open for SFI shooting signs the first week of July - it'd be cool to get to see them film a bit with Jensen as the director. Still, Supernatural is pretty stealthy when it comes to location shoots - not to mention they are usually out in New West - so I won't get my hopes up.

After last season, I'm pretty sure Bobby has the Winchester Immunity - that is, he can die, but it's unlikely to be permanent unless it's the series finale. (Cas as well).

I mean, they had the PERFECT chance ever to kill him way back in season 4, when Sam took off. (I'm glad they didn't, and not just because I like Bobby. It's just that... well, it would have taken some seriously strong focus to deal with that in season 5, and "focused" is not a word I could use to characterize the season.)

And then they could have killed him in 5x01, but against all odds he survived.

And then they healed him, and I thought he had a good chance of being a goner- you know, tying up loose ends, that sort of thing.

But no! He got brought back to life.

That pretty much settles it for me. We may see a lot more Bobby death from now on, but I don't expect it to stick.

(Hee! I just realized! This means bobby can join the "that time I died" club, along with Dean, Sam, Castiel, Harry, Daniel Jackson, Mulder, so on and so forth. I swear, I'm gonna write that, some day).

Speaking of the "that time I died" club, over on TWoP they're talking about Mitch Pileggi coming back for a few episodes, though I'm not sure where that came from (it's in the spec w/o spoilers thread). Which would be awesome! That makes me really excited!

(What if due to the turmoil, people from both Heaven and Hell are wandering back to earth? That could be a very cool storyline!)

Hmm...you are probably right. Plus, Bobby still forms a function in the storyline - unlike everyone else that they've killed off. Also, I just can't picture Supernatural without the "base" of Bobby's house - which is ironic given that Kripke hated the Roadhouse because he didn't want Hunters to have a home.

Maybe in the coming season though, they won't have need for things like the panic room - or a yard full of scrap cars...but we'll see.

I love the "that time I died" club! :)

I also heard that "spoiler" about Mitch Pileggi. It was originally an Ausellio (or however you spell that) spoiler...so, take it with whatever size grain of salt you want. It'd certainly be awesome to see him again - he and Jensen had good chemistry. I was wondering if maybe they'd go back to heaven or something - but if he's going to be in a "few" episode...well, maybe your guess is right! Regardless, I'm intrigued.
