“I would just describe it as something of a love letter to our fans, and there will be songs,” exec producer Jeremy Carver, dished about the episode at the TCA tour. “We’re going pretty meta.”
Jared added, ““We’re not at a convention, but we’re at a place where they’re doing a play based on the Chuck Shurley books. So not only are these books based on our lives, now people are doing a play based on these books, and someone is haunting it, so we go and try to investigate what’s going on at this play, based on the books about our lives.”
“It’s walking into a theater and seeing your life in pictures before you, but it’s from the perspective of the fans of the series,” Jensen continued.
