Q:To the anon with the fanfiction site stats: note also that some of the fics may be gen, especially for Sam/Dean stories (but certainly for Dean/Cas stories as well).
Thanks for the info! We’ve added a note to that post.
Q:Do you think Kevin will ever return to SPN, or is he dead for good?
Thanks for the question Anon!
We try not to answer questions here with what we think; although feel free to ask any of us on our personal blogs.
We have seen no additional information from TPTB about the status of Kevin’s future life or death*. Like you, we can only go by what was shown on-screen. As we mentioned in our post about Meg’s death: according to Supernatural tradition, even (apparently permanently) dead characters can come back at any time.
If anyone’s seen something we’ve missed, let us know and we’ll be happy to post it!
Q:How many followers does the (De)bunker have, and how long has the blog been around?
Thanks for the question, Anon!
We have a little over 2700 followers as of right now, and our very first public post occurred on June 7, 2013 (about six months ago). We’re fairly new to the fandom so we appreciate all the support and feedback we get!
(Special thank-you-shout-out to all of our awesome followers; sorry we can’t keep up with your fantastic questions all of the time.)
Since we’re talking about ourselves, we’d like to introduce our new awesome (de)Bunker interns: hubrisandwax and yellow-turtle. We really liked their applications last time we were looking for help, so we asked them to join us in our quest for fact-checking. (Welcome to the team you two!)
The rumor that the synopses posted on IMDB are official is DEBUNKED.
On December 11, the IMDB pages for Road Trip (9.10) and First Born (9.11) were updated to show the following synopses:
When asked for confirmation by numerous fans on Twitter, writer Robbie Thompson responded:
As the synopses in question have been declared not official, this rumor is DEBUNKED.
If you have any other rumors or information, please let us know!
- As always, any spoilers pertaining to future episodes should be taken with a grain of salt.
- IMDB is essentially a wiki, and can be edited by anyone. As such, it is not considered a reliable source.
- Robbie Thompson later tweeted the following advice:
- Further IMDB information that is false, thanks to another of our anons:
Q:I just saw the return of the ghostfacers being in the "debunked" list of the season 9 masterpost, but wasn't it confirmed to be true?
The rumor that Garth Fitzgerald IV will be returning to Supernatural this season is CONFIRMED.
DJ Qualls tweeted this possibly-cryptic confirmation back in October:
- Adam Glass’ tweets here and here suggest that the episode with Garth may be written by him (“Find out where Garth has been.” and “My 2nd episode explains a lingering question”). Party on Garth (7.18) and Southern Comfort (8.06)—the last two episodes to feature Garth—were written by Adam as well.
- Adam Glass’ next episode is 9.12 [x, since we know Robbie wrote 9.11]
- (Unreliable/Con Report) Garth’s storyline may have something to do with Kevin.

The rumor that The Fandom (de)Bunker is now on Twitter is CONFIRMED!

Q:Is it true that Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner are writing the mid-season finale of Supernatural?
Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner wrote 9.09 (Holy Terror) and the next episode 9.10 (Road Trip) will air on January 14.
Sorry it took so long for us to respond to your question, thanks for sending it to us!
Q:A little bird told me one of you is secretly Robbie T. CONFIRM/DENY
This rumor is DEBUNKED.
Last time we checked, none of us are Robbie T. Although we will let him answer this one for us:
Thanks for your question, Anon!
Q:you said that there was going to be destiel in episode 4! im not mad im just upset because it didnt happen.. i wish it did!
Thanks for the note!
We don’t remember saying Destiel would happen, but we apologize for any confusion we might have caused!
(We even had a post three months ago confirming that Castiel would NOT even be in that episode, but spoilers are pretty unreliable. We wish we could be more accurate in all of our posts, but the show might not be quite as fun if we knew everything that happened ahead of time!)
If you’re looking forward to more Dean & Castiel moments, you can look forward to the rest of the season—Misha Collins should be in about 70% of the remaining episodes. That means the probability of more scenes with both Dean and Castiel in them is pretty high!
The rumor that J2 have sent each other Wincest fanart is CONFIRMED.
It’s a little difficult to understand, but here’s our best attempt at a transcription:
Aisha: “I think there’s a good amount of like, really lovely homoerotic fanart on the web with Supernatural [unintelligible].”
Jared: “Jensen, I… I… I’m gonna… I don’t have it because we ended up gluing it into the back of our bodyguard’s phone. But there’s this phonecase that Jensen bought of um… Sam and Dean…”
Jared: “…In a compromising position. He did it as a joke. It was my birthday yesterday he did it as a birthday present for me this week. He put on the back of the phone and like, was like ‘Hey man, someone texted you.’ I’m like, ‘This isn’t my phone… dude.’”
Jared: I’m trying to get it off. Make it go away, make it go away!
Aisha: It’s glued on there!
Jared: Well no, we didn’t glue it yet. It was really like… tight fit. Glued it on the back of Cliffie, if you know who Cliff is, uh, we glued it on the back of his phone.
Aisha: So awesome. So funny.
Jared: So he’s gonna… He’s gonna kill us both.
Since Jensen did purchase a Wincest fanart phonecase for Jared in one instance, this rumor is Confirmed.
- We are unaware of any other cases, but we’d love to add them to this post if you send them our way!
- Special thanks to everyone below (including windtofire and moosekateer-princess-cuppycake) who tipped us about this information, after our original post on the subject!
Q:Do you know in which episode the Winchesters and Castiel will reunite? Because I heard something about the seventh episode and I don't know if that is true. Thank you.
Thanks for the question Anon. Sorry we weren’t able to answer it in a timely manner.
Dean was temporarily reunited with Castiel in the sixth episode, Heaven Can’t Wait. This was originally scheduled to air seventh, however due to the order of the episodes being changed, it aired a week earlier.
As we now know from the events of Holy Terror, he did not reunite with both brothers until episode nine.
Q:Hi I just saw your Sam and Dean soulmates ask and i'm confused. Ash said each heaven is a personal heaven where you relive happy memories except for soulmates who share a heaven. Despite having different "happy memories" Sam and Dean's heaven was clearly the same place because they bumped into each other on the same axis mundi. Neither Sam or Dean exited in order to be able to meet. Eric Kripke called them soulmates in one of those promo chats he did. Why are their doubts about this?
Thank you for your input regarding our choice not to confirm or debunk the status of Sam and Dean as soulmates.
We would like to reiterate that the question is never unequivocally answered in the show, although the details of Dark Side of the Moon (ep. 5.16) may imply either case depending on how one interprets the metaphysics of heaven. Thus the issue is too subjective for us to address at the (de)Bunker.
We do not consider word of God to be canon. The question that was submitted to us is about whether they are canonically soulmates.
As always, any of us would be happy to discuss this on our personal blogs. You can also discuss the question with your favourite meta writer!
Q:Will SPN will end with Endverse? I noticed some stuff in 9x03: the mention of Detroit, Cas' similar appearance to future!Cas, losing faith and sudden interest in sex, Zeke forcing Cas out of the bunker, taking control of Sam regularly, no confirmation that he actually is 'Ezekiel', the cage in the promo pics that could reference to Lucifer, and Dean torturing to achieve his goal and making choices by himself that he could deeply regret in the future.
Thanks for the question, Anon!
Everything we know about Season 9 and the possibility of end!verse can be found in this post. We consider the rumor that end!verse will occur to be Debunked.
However, as we’ve mentioned in that post, anything pertaining to future episodes or seasons can (and often, will) change.
Any further discussion of parallels between this season and episode 5.04 (The End) is a bit too subjective for this blog—although as always, we’re more than happy to discuss it on our personals.
Q:Do you debunk rumors about Vicki Vantoch?
Thanks for the question! We might, depending on the rumor. We’ll certainly consider answering anything SPN-adjacent or SPN!Cast-adjacent—although we reserve the right not to discuss a rumor if we feel it’s inappropriate or not within the purview of our blog.
