This is the absolute best part of my job. I got an early look at this Friday's meta Supernatural episode, "The French Mistake," something I've been looking forward to since I first heard about it, and I'm here to tell you that it does not disappoint.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

The episode finds the angel civil war back at the center of the show as Sam and Dean get transported to an alternate universe where they are Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, actors on a TV show called Supernatural. Everything that you could possibly imagine based on that concept comes true, including an alpaca and the show landing on the front page of Variety.

The actual plot is very important and could prove pivotal in the rest of the season, but that's for you to experience on Friday. For now, here are five juicy tidbits from this episode of Supernatural to get you even more excited than you already are, if that's possible. And if that's not enough, don't worry, because I'll be back Thursday morning with five more.

Misha's Tweets

First of all, Misha Collins is AMAZING at playing himself and you'll get a whole lot of him. But the best parts are his tweets about life on the set, which will have fans giggling like schoolgirls. Here's one bit: he uses the term "J-Squared" when talking about Jared and Jensen.

A Special Appearance by Eric Brady

Did you know that Jensen used to be on the soap opera Days of Our Lives? Well, Sam and Dean do and they have YouTube evidence to prove it.

Genevieve Padalecki

The former Ruby plays herself, Jared's wife, and while she's a bit odd, her choices in charities are even odder (remember this line for later, because it will be funny once you see the episode).

Sam and Dean's "Acting"

At one point Sam and Dean have to film a scene with Misha, and it's safe to say that these guys are very good at acting very badly.

Eric Kripke

Fear not, fans, Eric Kripke (or at least an actor playing Eric Kripke) is in the episode. Everything he does is wonderful and surreal, except when we find out the new TV show he's working on. Let's just say it doesn't sound like a real winner.


I hope you're even more excited, and remember to come back tomorrow morning for five more bits and pieces from "The French Mistake." Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go watch this episode about 20 more times before Friday.

Supernatural airs Friday at 9pm on the CW.
