How Would A 'Gilmore Girls' & 'Supernatural' Crossover Go Down? Stars Hollow Better Get Ready For The Winchesters
Can we all agree that Gilmore Girls and Supernatural are two of the greatest shows ever? They could not be further apart in story and style, but they are both so much fun to watch. Of course, there is one common factor: The beautiful super human Jared Padalecki. The actor starred as Rory's first love Dean on Gilmore Girls, then left Stars Hollow to chase demons, ghosts, angels, and monsters that go bump in the night as Sam Winchester on Supernatural, alongside fellow WB/CW vet Jensen Ackles (who Smallville fans will remember as Jason Teague). We've witnessed the crossing over of CW shows before, with The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, as well as The Flash and Arrow, doing it brilliantly. So what exactly would a Gilmore Girls and Supernatural crossover look like?
Before anyone even says it, yes, I do understand that The Originals is a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries, and that The Flash is essentially the same to Arrow. I also understand that those shows have way more in common with each other than Gilmore Girls, a comedy with romance, heart, and a beautiful mother/daughter relationship, does with Supernatural, a dark, gritty thriller with heart and a beautiful brother/brother relationship.
Still, stranger TV crossovers have happened (anyone remember when Bones and Family Guy crossed over?). Plus, if you consider how crazy some of the episodes of Supernatural have been over the years, you'd know that literally anything is possible when the Winchesters are involved. So here are three ways this dream crossover could transpire.
The Forgotten Past
This crossover would have occurred when Sam Winchester was still having strange dreams and powers thanks to Azazel (the yellow-eyed demon). Sam has a strange dream about another life he once had in a small town. He can't remember the name or anything he really did there. But he does remember a face, the face of his one true love. When he wakes up, Dean has found him a new case in Hartford, Conn.
On the way to Hartford, Dean's baby (the Impala of course) faces some car trouble, so they have to stop in a nearby town called Stars Hollow. Sam has deja vu, but can't place why he knows the town. Somehow, he knows to tell Dean to visit Gypsy, as she's the best mechanic around. The brothers then go to Luke's Diner for some coffee (and pie for Dean) where Sam runs into Rory Gilmore. Rory calls out for her ex-boyfriend Dean Forester and Dean Winchester responds instead. But Rory is really looking at Sam, telling him how he fell off the face of the Earth a few years back and explaining that she's been worried about him ever since. Complication ensues and slowly Sam realizes he once had a whole other life when he and Dean were apart.
In this crossover, Sam and Dean come to Stars Hollow to investigate a case with a possible shapeshifter and meet Dean Forester, who is helping Luke restore the old Twickum house into a museum for Taylor. At this point, Dean and Rory have broken up for the second time and Dean is bitter about Rory's new life with Logan at Yale. But when this Dean meets his doppelgänger Sam Winchester, he has new problems to worry about, as Sam believes Dean is the shapeshifter they're hunting.
The Mystery Of Stars Hollow
The final option for a crossover once again brings Sam and Dean to Stars Hollow for an investigation. This time, everyone in the small town believes they know Sam from a previous life. They keep calling him Dean, which confuses Dean Winchester, and Sam has to deal with Rory talking to him about their complicated past, of which he knows nothing. Dean Winchester attempts to hit on Lorelai but almost gets a beating from Luke, as Taylor tries to shoo Dean out of town, calling him a miscreant. The Winchester boys soon realize that the entire town was given false memories by an angel from their past, much like when Zachariah removed Sam and Dean's memories in the episode "It's A Terrible Life."
All three of these sound like pretty great episodes of both shows to me. Gilmore Girls may be over, but with Supernatural renewed for Season 11, there's still a chance to make one of these storylines happen, and I know I wouldn't be the only fan thrilled at the prospect.
