Soap Love Notes: An Eric Brady sighting on the CW’s Supernatural

Last week, there was an episode of Supernatural that completely shattered the fourth wall. In “The French Mistake,” Sam and Dean Winchester were sent to an alternate reality where there was no such thing as demons, ghosts, monsters and hell. Instead of being Sam and Dean, they were mistaken for actors on a TV show named Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles (the names of the real life actors who embody Sam and Dean season after season). One of my favorite moments of the episode — other than when the brothers tried to act — came when they found themselves in Jensen’s trailer. Sam was on the laptop and he Googled “Jensen Ackles.” Turns out there were tons of pictures of the actor, but more importantly, there was a YouTube clip of Jensen back when he was on NBC’s Days of our Lives. Yes, Jensen did actually star on the popular soap from 1997 to 2000. He was part of the main Brady family — Eric had a twin sister named Sami, played by current Days star and The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney. Anyway, the YouTube clip featured Eric and one of his love interests, Nicole (Arianne Zucker). This was a nice touch by the executive producer/writer of “The French Mistake,” Ben Edlund. OMG. Jensen looked so young in the clip — such a fetus. Seeing it again was awesome and it proved just how good of a sport Jensen really is.
