Supernatural Comics Creator Prophet


Anyone catch last night's Supernatural episode called "The Monster at the End of This Book"? We're not regular viewers but when we read the setup we just had to check it out. Here's how the Sunday Telegraph TV guide summarised the plot:
While visiting a comic shop as fake FBI agents investigating a possible haunting, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are mistaken for fans of a cult series of books entitled Supernatural about two hunters who also happen to be called Sam and Dean.

Intrigued, they buy the full collection and find that each novel accurately details their demon-hunting lives.

The brothers soon track down and confront the reclusive author Chuck Shurley (Rob Benedict) who shows them a draft manuscript of the next book which describes future events ...
The episode was half tense and half tongue-in-cheek, especially when the Chuck comics creator character discovers that he can psychically predict what happens to the two brothers and then pronounces himself to be a god.  However, he turns out to be a divinely protected prophet instead. Also LOVED the idea that the Winchester brothers will get their own Gospel of Winchester in a future edition of the Bible. We liked the spin on the entire episode and are interested to see how the producers and writers handle the rest of the story line.
