This season of Supernatural has used flashbacks to show what happened to Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) in the year that the latter was in purgatory, and for Sam, that meant having a normal life with a girl (Amelia, played by Liane Balaban) and a dog. There does seem to be something a bit off sometimes about those flashbacks (and not jut the fact that Sam didn’t look for Dean), but is it possible that Amelia’s not real?
Based on some new spoilers from E! Online, the answer is looking like no: “Our source close to the show tells us that a love triangle of sorts is coming up between Sam, Amelia and her not so dead ex-husband, so we’re assuming she’s pretty darn real.” While love triangles are the norm for other shows, that’s not the case for Supernatural. Season 8 just revealed in “Hunteri Heroici” in one of the flashbacks (after Sam met her father) that Don is actually alive, and that’s bound to throw a wrench into things. Could that have anything to do with the way that Sam left Amelia in the beginning of the season?
While that does seem to throw the “Amelia isn’t real” theory out the window, it is possible that the “love triangle of sorts” could not be real either. Whatever the case, this does raise the question of what this means going forward for Sam. It does complicate things, no matter what happened in the past or is coming up in the present. And speaking of Amelia, there’s still the question of who was watching Sam in the premiere as he left her and how that will come up again.
