Even though the first day of Supernatural Con was my favorite, the second day was still pretty dang amazing! I was ready in my fangirl getting, sporting my brand new Winchester Bros. shirt. It’s so comfy, and I adore it.
After Dick and Rob opened the show with their hilarious banter, Sebastian Roche, who plays Balthazar, took the stage for his Q&A panel. I use the term “Q&A” loosely because there weren’t many questions or answers. A lot of his panel was spent singing random songs with the band and running through the crowd. It was pretty entertaining.
Mark Pellegrino took the stage next. He played Lucifer in Supernatural. He was very poised compared to some of the other guests, but he was still so funny. I was excited to see Mark because I also knew him from Lost, which I loved, even though it got super confusing. He also guest starred in an episode of Grimm, so really I was just pumped about his Q&A. He answered a lot of questions and even invited someone onstage with him.
During intermission, Jon and I went to see the infamous Impala, and this time, the trunk was open, so we were able to see all of the craziness inside of it.
The next panel was Gil McKinney! He took the stage for a second time, and I loved it because he’s so cute and adorable and fun. He’s just down-to-earth, and after hearing him sing several times on Friday, I was absolutely swooning over him. I would love to meet him the next time I’m able to go to a Con.
I knew I was going to love the next Q&A panel, because it had three people in it: Dick (aka the Trickster and Gabriel), Matt Cohen (the young John Winchester), and Rob. There was so much hilarity onstage, including a game of F, Marry, Kill and Dick singing “Let It Go.” There are no words for how amazing the three of them are together. So. Much. Laughter.
After the Q&A panel, Jon and I got in line for our photo op with Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard. Misha plays my favorite character, Castiel, and Mark plays Jon’s favorite character, Crowley, aka the king of hell. We ended up getting to take two pictures with them because Jon blinked in the first one. I wanted to do a fun picture, but I was pretty much speechless and couldn’t say anything other than “hi.” I gave them each hugs though and squeezed myself between the two of them. They’re so lovely. Ah!
After a quick lunch of hotel pizza and some cake pops from the hotel’s Starbucks, Jon and I were all set for Mark Sheppard’s panel. He started the panel by eating steak and fries onstage. He answered all of the questions sarcastically. I loved his dry sense of humor and his honesty.
The last panel of the day was Misha’s. There were lots of screams and squeals during his panel. One thing I love about Misha is that he uses his status to do good in the world. At the beginning of his panel, he collected tampons and pads to donate to the Salvation Army. How awesome is that?! I hung on Misha’s every word because I loved everything he had to say, both funny and serious. He also opened a tampon for the first time onstage…yea. It was an interesting panel.
After Misha’s amazing panel, we got ready for autographs with Mark Sheppard and Sebastian Roche. We met Mark first, and it was just a hi and bye situation, unfortunately. I was nervous, and couldn’t think of anything clever to say. When we met Sebastian for his autograph, he remembered me! Not by name, but still. He said he recognized me, and when I said I did karaoke, it clicked, and he said I did awesome. He also said something about me twerking. Ah! I can’t twerk, for the record, but there was some booty popping. Not gonna lie. When at Supernatural Con…
After a quick dinner, Jon and I met up with Sammi, who was my best friend in middle school. It had been over a year since we last saw each other, so I was happy to be able to catch up. We met up at the only bar in that part of Houston, which was the Hoot County Saloon. It’s hard to describe the strangeness/awesomeness of this place. It was just this little bar with a giant horse in the corner. No exaggeration on the giant.
When we left Sammi, we headed back to the convention for the Saturday Night Cabaret! It was basically a Louden Swain concert (amazing!), and then they invited some stars from the show to come up and perform a song or two. We got there a bit late, so we missed Mark Pellegrino’s performance, but we managed to catch the rest of the show. It was a blast!
After the show, Louden Swain signed autographs for anyone who bought Louden Swain merch. I bought a picture for them to sign, and was among the first few to get an autograph. Rob complimented me on my karaoke singing from the night before. I was so humbled that he remembered me and had kind words to say. I’m officially a super fan. The guitarist, Billy, complimented my hair, which was so nice. The bassist, Mike, is Filipino, and we had a little conversation about how we’re both Filipino, and he signed my picture with “Pinoy Power!”
I was so sad to see Saturday come to an end, but both Jon and I were exhausted. We pretty much passed out after going back to the hotel room.
