I’m doing a thing I like to call Imitation Buzzfeed. It’s exactly what it sounds like. If you’re familiar with Buzzfeed, you’ll immediately recognize the “feel” of the title.
I’m going to list 10 characters from Supernatural (CW) that (I feel) deserve (awesome) TV shows of their own, even if it means they live past their canon death date.
1. Missouri Moseley (The Psychic)
She’s a psychic…a female POC, which is always nice…and she has a quite wonderful attitude, expressing herself like there’s no tomorrow. Perfect combo. I would watch “Moseley” for the boundless humor.
Canon whereabouts: Unknown. Had one utterly delightful episode to call home, never seen again.
Portrayed by: Loretta Devine
2. Andy Gallagher (One of “The Special Children”)
Sweet, sweet Andy. Gifted, by Azazel nonetheless, with the ability to control minds verbally (he could say “Give me your coffee” and you’d do it) as well as send images to people (the cause of the above gay porn quote), he never used his abilities for anything other than minor personal gain, and helping people when the time came. I would watch “Gay Porn: All Hours Of The Day” for the humor, obviously, and to simply catch glimpses of his adorable face. (Do you see that smile? In the photo?) He has an adorable personality, too. He’s very kind, only takes what he needs, and was strangely never even tempted to go over to the dark side. He also loves helping others, and will go find salt when you need him to (inside joke). Maybe he fights crime in “Gay Porn: All Hours Of The Day” and instead of psychically fighting his rascally outlaw counterparts, he learns to slow them down by “downloading” images that he has found (with some research) are very personally scary into their brains.
Canon whereabouts: Dead, sadly. Ripped to shreds by an Acheri demon (controlled by Ava Wilson, another “special child”). Ironically, even though Sam and Dean (and Castiel, I suppose) have died and risen countless times, the writers refuse to bring him back.
Portrayed by: Gabriel Tigerman
3. Luther (The Vampire)
I personally think Luther deserved better. He made it clear that he was afraid of hunters, or at least what they would do to Kate (his lover). Near the end of the episode (the only one he was ever in), he stated that he felt he and his people had just as much of a right to live as the hunters (who were trying to kill him at the time) did, which made it clear for us that he knew they had a right to live. Think about it. He wouldn’t have hurt any hunters, which include the two characters who are the heart of the show. So that makes him okay, right? I know you shouldn’t transform/kill/feed on innocent people, but it’s in his biology. Can’t really ignore that. His family was killed, probably brutally, without any second thoughts, don’t you think he deserves an apology too? Okay, so here’s the plot of “The Redemption of Luther”: Luther convinces Kate not to leave the nest at such a hectic time. The moment passes, and he and his clan flee. Luther travels the country, slowly convincing vampires from all over to be more “selective” (eg. only killing murderers, only killing “Gordon Walker” types – hunters who kill without thought, etc) and peaceful, and eventually he meets up with Lenore (yes, I know she’s dead, canon-wise) and they discuss a few things, and end up splitting their appetites between deserving humans and cows. Yaaaaaaaay.
Canon whereabouts: Dead. Shot in the head by John Winchester (who also ended up dead). He was the first Supernatural creature to die via Colt gun onscreen.
Portrayed by: Warren Christie
Technically, we do see quite a lot of him in the series, which is the one of the things that makes it so enjoyable (you rock, Mark!). But on the other hand, um…yes. There can never be enough Crowley! *chants* Crowley, Crowley, Crowley!
Canon whereabouts: Currently alive, although the series is still on and active, so I don’t know about the future…I wouldn’t worry though, everyone loves Crowley.
Portrayed by: Mark A. Sheppard.
5. Soulless Sam
If only Sam and Soulless Sam could have magically separated into two people. Then they could’ve gone their “separate” ways (pun intended) and Soulless Sam could’ve put his soullessness to more good use, crisscrossing the country just like the brothers do, but with a bit of a “rough edge,” and a whole lot of sarcasm.
Canon whereabouts: Transformed back into Normal Sam (as Normal as Sam can get, anyhow). Inactive.
Portrayed by: Jared Padelecki.
6. Apocalypse Dean (+ his gang)
Admit it. You want more. Or at least, you want to know more. Yeah, sure, Dean didn’t have his brother with him, and he’s gone through a lot of scarring things, but he had Castiel. If Destiel could’ve become canon at any point in the series, it should’ve become canon then. Cas could’ve comforted him, and kept him grounded, not to mention drown him in hugs and kisses. I would watch “Camp Chitaqua” to see all the things left unmentioned. (How did Bobby die? I mean, we’re supposed to assume he’s dead, right? How did Dean get so…brooding? Was it the way Sam said yes to Luci? And for crying out loud, I mean, the details must’ve been different – what exactly happened in Detroit?)
Canon whereabouts: I don’t really know how to describe it. I guess he’s dead. *shrugs* ?????
Portrayed by: Jensen Ackles
7. Meg (Demon)
Pleeeeeeeease. She was so quirky, and charismatic (“We’re going to Heaven, Clarence!”), and to be very honest, I want both Destiel and Megstiel. I have no idea how, or why, but for some reason, both ships co-exist peacefully in my mind, like cuddly divine/demon polyamory for Dean. I would watch “Meg Masters, Demon” for Meg. Yes, I’ll admit. No matter what the show is about (it could even be a satirical “Cupcake Wars” and she kills whoever loses), I’ll watch it for Meg, cause I need more Meg.
Canon whereabouts: Dead. Stabbed by the other cutie demon, Crowley. With a demon-killing knife, obviously.
Portrayed by: Rachel Miner, in her newest incarnation.
8. Gabriel (The Archangel aka The Gnarliest Trickster To Ever Exist)
He has the silliest sense of humor, no scruples whatsoever (yet always manages to do the right thing), and the cutest itty bitty face. He loves his brothers, yet in the end, stands up to his older brother Lucifer, which ends up being the thing that kills him. He just wants it to be over. I would watch the aptly named “Gabriel Show” for the sick humor, and the other types of humor too (slapstick, puns, etc). I’m not saying Richard Speight Jr. can’t be a serious, sincere actor, and when he does act serious and sincerely, I’ll be ready. All the more Gabriel.
Canon whereabouts: Dead. You already read it. Lucifer killed him. And cried over his body, by the way. They’re brothers.
Portrayed by: Richard Speight Jr. (Fun fact: I had a dream that I almost met him. I met the writers, and then wanted to meet him too, but I didn’t want to bother him by “being a fan,” so I just sat in a room I assumed he would walk in to, since some of his friends were in there too. I thought waiting in there, hoping we could chat if he came in, was less invasive than following him around. He walked by the door, I saw his face, shouted “Richard!” as he walked into the other room. And then I woke up.)
9. God + Amara
Is it just me, or wouldn’t we all love to see “The Adventures Of The Divine Siblings”? Let’s say they work out their differences, and go on world creating/destroying adventures. ‘Cept this time it’s just for fun, and they get to play hide-and-go-seek and tag while running through the hills of Narnia. (I don’t know!)
Current whereabouts: Probably doing something like that. But offscreen. Last we saw, they “wooshed” away to work out their differences together. Maybe they’re attending group therapy together.
Portrayed by: Rob Benedict and Emily Swallow
10. Garth (And His Werewolf Pals)
C’mon. Crime-fighting, cake-baking, nuclear family werewolves? How could you pass that up?
Canon whereabouts: Alive, but left alone, so we sadly don’t see him that often anymore.
Portrayed by: DJ Qualls

So! That’s my list! What do you guys think? Do you agree with my choices? Have anymore to add?
