Rebekah Lainen

Hello my name is Rebekah. The reason I am writing you is to nominate myself as a possible candidate for fan of the month.

I am not trying to sound shallow or anything, it’s just that I would do anything I could to support the show. I grew up with an abusive father, which is why I believe the bond that Sam and Dean share with their father is really special. I have 3 kids, 2 of whom are too young to watch the show, but they know quite a bit about it from me telling them. My stepdaughter is of age to watch the show. In fact I got her into it. She just recently lost her mother in a tragic accident. She’s only 12 years old and when she watches the show it helps her forget about how much she is hurting and it gives us a chance to bond. Her hero is Sam. She really adores him.

My 2 boys are always asking about my love for the show. They have both even said that just based on what I have told them of Sam and Dean that they hope they can grow up to be like them. My oldest son is mentally retarded and can be a handful, but to hear him talk so positively about Sam and Dean and how he wants to be like them really makes me feel good. I see that spark in his eyes as they light up when he talks about them. He says he looks just like Dean – so sweet!

I’ve even got my mother into the show, which has cheered her up a lot especially since she is dying of cancer. Through all the pain and suffering in my family’s and my life, Supernatural has remained a very positive attribute for us. I have suffered in my life and now so are my children, but seeing Supernatural gives me hope that there is still good in this world.

Supernatural…the most amazing and touching show I have ever seen. I love everything about it.

Well thanks for your time!

Sincerely,
Rebekah

Rebekah, thank you for sharing your story. Of course we want to feature you on our site!! ~Lindsay and Heather

SSN: How did you discover Supernatural?

Rebekah: I was watching TV one night and the pilot episode was advertised and I was immediately drawn to the show from then on.

SSN: What is your favorite Supernatural episode and why?

Rebekah: It is so hard to choose just one episode as I love them all, but if I would have to pick one I would have to say SHADOW because it was just amazing to see Sam and Dean reunited with their father after all their searching. Kim Manners did a great job. And family is so important. YELLOW FEVER was soo incredibly funny. Dean screaming about the cat – that just floored me. But as I said I love all the episodes.

SSN: What is your least favorite Supernatural episode and why?

Rebekah: I don’t hate any of the episodes but the one I didn’t enjoy that much would have to be MONSTER MOVIE only because I thought it to be a bit on the corny side for my taste, but that is not to say that it was not well done. Just wasn’t my cup of tea.

SSN: Who is your favorite villain?

Rebekah: It is a tie between Lilith and Azazel (yellow eyes). The reason is that ever since I saw Lilith as that little blonde girl and how she coined the phrase “Silly Goose” every time I see that young actress in another show I still get goosebumps and with Azazel just the incredible acting and the way I was always on the edge of my seat whenever he was around and always wondering what he had planned next.

SSN: How do you promote Supernatural?

Rebekah: I have joined every club I could find regarding Supernatural and I am always more than willing to tell anyone who will listen about the show and how great it is and that they should watch it. So far I have had great success with that.

SSN: Do you prefer one of the boys over the other? If so, which one?

Rebekah: No – I love them both equally and find it very hard to see one as being better than the other. They both are heroes and have very important roles to play in saving the earth. I just admire both of their courage and strength during adversity and how no matter what life throws at them and no matter how hard things get they always pull through somehow and stick together. I really envy that type of family bond they share. Plus they are both just so cute. Why choose one if you could choose both?!

SSN: If you could be in ANY Supernatural episode, which would you choose and why?

Rebekah: Season 1 either HOME or SHADOW because I think it would have been so great to see Sam and Dean reuniting with their father or mother in person. As I said family is very important to me and to see such a more deserving family reunite in person would just be beyond words.

SSN: What one character would you love to see back on Supernatural?

Rebekah: I think it would be great to see John back on the show because he was a great father to the boys. Sure he made some mistakes but all in all he really loved his kids and was even willing to die to protect them. There are not that many fathers like that in the world we live in today. I should know!

SSN: How do you want the show to end?

Rebekah: I do understand that the show has to end as sad as it is, but if so than at least have it end that Sam and Dean are able to somehow send Lucifer back to the pit with Castiel and Bobby’s help and that they are then able to at least be free finally to live however they see fit. I believe they do deserve that much. I think it would be really great to end it with a nice movie. You know something in the big screen – that would just be totally spectacular!

SSN: What other TV shows do you watch religiously?

Rebekah: There are not really any other shows I watch religiously as I do Supernatural. There are other shows that I do enjoy such as Criminal Minds, Smallville, and Sanctuary just to name a few. But Supernatural is tops – all the way. There will never be another show like it. Never!

SSN: Where can we find you on the Internet ?

Rebekah: You can find me on Facebook as BeckaSue.

Eric Kripke you have outdone yourself and I think I speak for all Supernatural fans when I say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this amazing and spellbinding show. We will never forget it. Sam and Dean will live on forever in our hearts.
