Before I leave you, I wanted to get you excited about the magazine by sharing an interview with Jim Beaver (a.k.a. Uncle Bobby) that can be found in the third issue of The Official Supernatural Magazine.

Father Figure

Brave, knowledgeable, and not one to suffer fools gladly, Bobby Singer has proven a godsend to the Winchester brothers since the character was first introduced in the season one episode Devil’s Trap. Actor JIM BEAVER tells
The Official Supernatural Magazine why Bobby will do anything for those โ€œidgitโ€ boys…In a recent script, Dean calls you a father figure. Do you see Bobby as a surrogate father to the boys?

I think I would agree with that. I don’t know that Bobby would describe himself as a father to the boys, but I think that’s kind of the way he feels about them. And I think that’s something that’s grown since Bobby was introduced in Devil’s Trap. I don’t get the impression that he had that kind of relationship with them before, but now that he sees them and works with them, he has a great deal of affection for them and a strong sense of responsibility. It’s an unintentional fatherly feeling. I’ve got a six-year-old daughter, so I don’t know anything about having two grown sons, but there’s a tendency for one’s age and experience to lead one into a parental mode when dealing with younger adults. These guys are smart and clever and determined, but they’re also a little childish, and Bobby enjoys his role, whether it’s father figure or mentor, or just cattle prod.

How are his relationships different with Sam and with Dean?

That’s a hard question to answer, because sometimes I have trouble separating Jared and Jensen from Sam and Dean. Bobby’s concerned about them both, with Dean’s sense of self, but there’s a sort of undercurrent of worry about Sam. Sam seems to have more of the heart of darkness about him than Dean does, although Sam and Bobby haven’t had the kind of deeply personal moments that Bobby and Dean have had. I just sense that there’s this ongoing watchful eye that Bobby’s got on Sam.
