Supernatural looked a lot like a Godzilla shoot yesterday — with soldier backgrounders, army jeeps and the same bus we saw in downtown New Westminster dressed as San Francisco but without the mega- Godzilla damage to it. Supernatural spent the morning filming scenes at the Justice Institute of British Columbia in New Westminster turned into the Special Forces Naval Base in Coronado, California. And then moved next door to the Canada Games Pool parking lot for the crime scene with fake FBI agents Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) Winchester investigating what happened aboard that San Diego County bus and looking fine doing it.
Jensen Ackles gave fans a wave after their first scene aboard the bus as he and Jared Padalecki headed back to their trailers to wait for the next one. It was late afternoon before the Impala made an appearance so that the Winchesters could be filmed getting out of it and walking to and from the bus in take after take. It was hard to see that scene because of the technocrane, crew and equipment but the next setup cleared all that away and gave fans a clear view of their heroes. Only this time spectators were asked not to take photographs. So we only got to see not capture the prank on the very last take of the day when Jared Padalecki stepped up on the rear bumper of the bus and attached himself to it like Spider-Man on the back and then popped his head up to the window to photobomb the shot.
