Hottie of the Week: Misha Collins...

Tonight might be the night Supernatural jumps the shark. By introducing a younger Winchester brother, supposedly from some secret family that Papa W had and no one knew about, the writers and producers run the risk of alienating a large part of their fan base, ie the ones who watch the show for the strong family values that Papa W imparted on his boys and the bond they share because of their devotion to him and his way of life. The writers and producers are fully aware of the risk, though (hell, they even named the episode "Jump the Shark!"). They are not afraid of it because episodes earlier, in the beginning of the season when Dean returned from hell, they took a similar risk by introducing the character of Castiel, an angel sent from heaven to help Dean on his mission. Introducing the idea of God and heaven amongst demons was a gamble, too, but look at how it paid off! Castiel has developed quite a rapid (and rabid!) fan following of his own, and TPTB at Supernatural have decided to bring him back full time (can you say series regular??) for their fifth and final season. That is why today's Hottie of the Week is none other than the simultaneously smoldering and ethereal man himself, Misha Collins.
