With tonight bringing what looks to be a firey season finale to The CW's Jared Padalecki-starring Walker, we have the series star offering viewers some clues as to what they can expect by the time the credits roll on S02E20 "Something's Missing." First thing? Padalecki makes it clear that the episode will bring answers- and more questions. "It's not dissimilar to our season 1 finale, where we get a lot of unexpected answers and our characters heal, but there's also more questions, which is so much like life — you get some answers and it brings up more questions," Padalecki explained to EW. "It's certainly a chance for the Walker family at large to find out some stuff they had wrong, some stuff they had right, and some stuff they weren't even aware of."
The idea of season-long, over-arching mysteries being answered before branching off into new questions is a practice that's found a fan in Padalecki. "I like not asking random questions as an audience just for the sake of asking questions. I like to answer questions. I like to figure out the puzzle along with the audience, which requires us to kind of wrap it up and not just keep asking the same questions over and over and over again for years and years," Padalecki explained. "One of the things we really set out to do with 'Walker' from the get was make it more of a show about life and family, and not just blood family, which I had a taste of on 'Supernatural' — or had a buffet of on 'Supernatural.' [Laughs] This version of 'Walker' is meant more to mirror the way life goes for the majority of human beings and so they have a problem, they try and fix it, and they fix it and they realize there's another problem. And 'fix' is maybe the wrong word, but they try to come to some resolution and the resolution's always imperfect."
