Shipper Nation: A Valentine's Day treat for 'Fringe' lovers and a salute to TV's most romantic, creative (and arguably strangest) fans

Last Friday, Fringe fans were treated to an instant-classic installment of the Fox sci-fi series, one that significantly advanced the season’s defining storyline: Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson) — marooned in a new rendering of history in which he has not existed since he was a child – trying to return home to his own timeline. Yet for one particular, peculiar subset of loyal Fringe viewers, “Welcome to Westfield” was nothing short of an early Valentine’s Day gift. They’re the fans for whom the dream sequence spectacle of Peter and Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) making love was a dream come true. They’re the fans that got goosebumps when Olivia planted a kiss on Peter, as if this “reboot” version of his ladylove had suddenly reverted back to the original iteration of her. They’re fans known as ‘shippers, and if you’re a Web-chatty TV watcher or pop culture aficionado who tends to fixate on romantic relationships in your favorite fiction or fantasize about the mere possibility of amorous activity between your favorite make-believe people, then you’re probably one of them.

In the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, we explore how the shipper phenomenon — which began with The X-Files and until recently has been more associated with sci-fi and fantasy fandom — has gone mainstream and how shippers themselves can impact the creative process. An added bonus for Fringe fans: Exec producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman tell EW that an episode scheduled to air next month, entitled “A Short Story About Love,” will be a shipper milestone.

'Supernatural': Jared Padalecki, EPs preview rest of the season

These boys can’t seem to catch a break. But that’s pretty much business as usual on Supernatural. Less usual? The season’s high body count.

Now, Supernatural has never shied away from giving key players the figurative (and sometimes literal) axe  — and oftentimes, they’ve returned at some point in the series. But this year, two fan favorites met their maker (first angel pal Castiel and more recently lovable curmudgeon Bobby Singer). The price was as high as it’s ever been. And as the boys continue to mourn their losses this season (RIP Bobby… sorta) (RIP Cas, they think) executive producer Sera Gamble tells EW that the deaths, while difficult, were key in telling the stories they set out to tell this season. “The really cool thing about this show is that [death] never precludes continuing to explore the character,” she says. (For more on the death of Bobby, read today’s Spoiler Room.) “All that means is that we get to be bold and we get to make big choices, and we get to really go places with Sam and Dean.” READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' promo: Dean is untouchable -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

There’s little to add to this promo clip from Supernatural‘s next new episode. On one hand, that’s probably because it doesn’t tell you much plot-wise. On the other hand, it’s because some images simply render the human mind speechless. And the visual of Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) wielding a Tommy Gun while wearing a fedora is one of those images, friends.

But before you check out the promo, a little context: Dean finds himself in 1944 thanks to the God of Time (guest star Jason Dohring). And, as usual, Dean runs into some troubles of the law enforcement kind. Exactly how we get to the point where he’s firing a giant gun, I’m not sure. But does it really matter at this point?  READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' scoop: Misha Collins to return

Castiel lives!

After being assumed dead since the beginning of this season, fan-favorite Misha Collins is slated to return to Supernatural in the new year, Warner Brothers tells EW. He will appear in episode 17 of this season and at least two additional episodes.

The studio and the network, CW, declined to provide more information about his return, but regardless, the news should please fans, who have been vocal about their desire to get the angel back on screen.

Shortly after the premiere, executive producer Sera Gamble told EW the actor’s return was imminent,  though, at the time, she had no specific plans. “We all love Misha [Collins], and we plan to write material for him,” she said. “But in terms of where we are in the story right now, it’s a lot about Sam and Dean and Bobby losing this person that was incredibly important to them.”

‘GOSSIP GIRL': EP TALKS MORE ON ‘SLEEP NO MORE,’
How much did you love this news? I was so excited I even circled Nov. 14 in my calendar and drew a creepy mask by the date to remind myself. But in case you need even more reasons to be excited about the impending romantic entanglements in this very special episode, executive producer Josh Safran told me that much “like masked balls in the past, there are multiple kisses — between multiple people” in the episode. “Like, quadratic couples, I’d say,” he teases. Could that have something to do with the “big kiss” everyone has been asking me about? Possibly… READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural': Charisma Carpenter on her reunion with fellow 'Buffy' alum James Marsters

Tonight’s episode of Supernatural will feature a fandom clash of epic proportions as Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel alums Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters hit the small screen as a husband and wife witch team in an episode titled “Shut Up, Dr. Phil.” For Carpenter, who hadn’t shared a scene with Marsters since their days on the WB, it was an on-set reunion worth waiting for.

“We go way back,” she says. “It was fun to see an old friend on set and catch up on each other’s lives and talk about our kids, music, and books and talk about what it was like when we were working on this show and that show. It was a lot of intimate conversations about the old days. It was great.”  READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural': Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki on weddings, 'wacky' Sam -- PHOTOS AND VIDEO

Jensen Ackles and Jared Padelecki couldn’t say much about the wedding that has fans in a tizzy. But during a press visit to the set of Supernatural yesterday, Padalecki did say that one of the brothers’ trip to the altar is as unexpected to the other brother as it was to fans. “The gist of it is that these characters have been through a lot,” he said. “Dean in relationships and Sam in relationships, and now — it kind of comes out of the blue — but there is going to be a character who gets married. And it’s kind of confusing to the other character, naturally, but it all spells itself out pretty quickly.”

Meanwhile, Ackles opened up about Dean’s as-of-yet unspecified struggles, which last week found him making an emotional phone call to Bobby. “It’s a lot of that inner struggles that’s been dragging along for six years,” he said. “Dean’s got his issues that he’s constantly dealing with — the guilt and the lifestyle, in general, the fact that he feels like he let his brother down and may not be able to protect people the way he use to be able to. It’s a ‘weight of the world’ thing.”

You can view the full press Q&A in the video below. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' promo: Sam's losing his mind, Dean's (probably not) 'fine,' and the Leviathan takes to the water -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

I’ve already raved about how Friday’s episode of Supernatural was truly one of the scariest ever, and this exclusive promo takes aim at yet other portion of my fear-laden psyche.

In the video, which you can watch below, we learn that the Leviathan have started using the water supply as means of getting around, causing strange mutations to take place. (I get squirmy just thinking about drinking anything unfiltered.) We also get another glimpse at Sam’s post-hell struggle with hallucinations. The only benefit of his issues? The fact that we apparently get to see a lot of Mark Pellegrino this season!  READ FULL STORY
