Jensen Ackles is finally explaining why he didn’t tell Jared Padalecki (or as I call him, Dean from Gilmore Girls) about his Supernatural prequeldespite the fact that they played brothers on the hit show. Speaking on Michael Rosenbaum’s Inside of You podcast (via People), Jensen said Jared was “number one” on his list of people to tell about the sequel but that he didn’t want to “jinx it.”

“It’s an unwritten rule that you just don’t talk about shit until it’s a done deal, until the ink has dried,” he said. “And this was my first venture into producing and creating content, and I didn’t wanna jinx it at any cost. So I shut up about it. Only the people that had to know knew.”

“I definitely had people that I was excited to tell, Jared being number one on that list,” he explained, adding, “And then it all just kind of turned south.” Which brings us to Jared’s reaction, which was to hop on Twitter and talk about being gutted.

“Dude. Happy for you. Wish I heard about this some way other than Twitter,” he wrote. “I’m excited to watch but bummed that Sam Winchester had no involvement whatsoever.…This is the first I’ve heard about it. I’m gutted.”

“I had a long text from Jared and he was really bummed, and I just remember my heart just sank. I was just like, ‘Fuck!’” Jensen said of Jared’s reaction, adding, “In hindsight, that could have been a step that was avoided. But he did it, and it happened, and we dealt with it. And he and I, we’re great.”

Love a happy ending.
