In a post on Twitter this week, Jared confirmed that he has spent some time this week working with none other than actress Lindy Booth on an episode that will air many weeks down the road. Booth is a Canadian actress whose most-notable credit as of late is three episodes of the now-canceled BBC America show “Copper,” where she took on the role of Teresa. She has also appeared in an episode of “NCIS,” “Warehouse 13,” and the also-canceled series “Fairly Legal.” Clearly, shows filmed in Canada are in some ways a specialty, given that all mentioned in this article save for “NCIS” are filmed north of the border.
Obviously, it’s easy for the first reaction to this casting to be something along the lines of “oh no, what is going to happen to her”? It’s all mostly thanks to the sole fact that as you may know well by now, female characters on “Supernatural” do not have particularly happy endings. One of the only ones to receive anything worth smiling about right now is Felicia Day’s Charlie, who is going to be back in some capacity this season. A female character’s fate is also exponentially worse on this show if you are a love interest to one of the characters. Even if they do not end up dead, the fan reaction to could be somewhat unsettling. (Just look at what fans thought about Amelia last season.)
Given that we are a long ways away from this episode airing, there are going to be many opportunities for the show to evolve and shift over the coming weeks. “Supernatural” started off with a great hour in “I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here,” and the cliffhanger for Sam is that he is technically pseudo-Sam right now. Ezekiel is in his body, and if Sam tries to fight the angel’s spirit or vote it off his personal little island, then he could die in the process without even realizing what he’s done.
In going back to Booth’s casting, the question that we’ll ask here is as follows: What sort of female characters do you want to see pop up on the show next? Share below, and click here if you want to check out the return of a particular popular female character in Abaddon.
