So, I was super bored tonight, because of no new show, and I also didn't feel like writing (because I suck), so I figured I'd catch up on some of my timelining and watch Blood Brother 8x05 again...

I'VE DISCOVERED FACTUAL TREASURES!

Firstly, yes, Supernatural has indeed done the "soap-opera year" and despite being "one year later", it is still somehow 2012.

Secondly, Kevin Tran's date of birth is December 2nd 1993, making him nearly 19 years old, which is actually a little old to be starting university, isn't it? Maybe he did an extra year of kindergarten like yours truly...all the smart kids do it, I hear which is exactly the right age to be starting university, good job, Kevin!

Kevin is also an Agnostic, and he's using a credit card under the pseudonym Kevin Park.

We also get to find out Amelia's DOB: April 20th 1980, making her three years older than Sam.

Anyway, that was my fun for the evening. :)

I almost wondered if they back tracked on Kevin's age on purpose so he would be an adult because then they could kill him if needed without killing a minor. They seem squeemish about harming minors. How would it be if Crowley cut a "kids"finger off.

Kevin's birthday works in the US. Most schools have a cut off around December first. So Kevin would have started Kindergarten at 5 and turned 6 soon after.

They're idiots with the dates. Clearly Kevin is a year older, but, it's still 2012! As far as I'm concerned its 2014.

I'm sure they purposefully made Kevin 18+ - I mean, I think Osric is 26 or something ridiculous, but it also gives them more range of storyline...not just for potentially killing him, but for torture (as you point out) and also for any romantic storyline they might want to give him. It just gives them more freedom.

I'm guessing that Samandriel is also riding around in an 18 year-old for that reason too - though they haven't confirmed that.

As far as I'm concerned as well it's 2014. It's not like they actually reference current events (besides the entertainment industry) so I don't see why they insist on keeping the Winchesters in the our present.
