Supernatural has covered a lot of ground in the previous seven seasons, but none is as hallowed as the nerd church at San Diego Comic Con. Longtime con favorites Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark Sheppard and Misha Collins joined a group of reporters to chat, at times rather secretively, about the season 8 of the monster/angel/demon hunting show, which premiered last week.

Now that the Supernatural season is off to a start, with episode two airing tonight, we are opening the Paranormal Pop Culture vaults from last July to let you hear exactly what the stars said about the show - and where it's going in the future.
