Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Benny notably died slowly of what was implied to be a gunshot or stab wound, bringing into question whether or not he's a vampire like his prime universe counterpart.
- Ty Olsson's appearance as Benny at the start of the Atomic Monsters was not originally scripted, and was suggested at the behest of Jensen. Per Variety: In it, Ackles directed himself in hand-to-hand combat and stunts, as well as a couple of key emotional moments, including bringing back "a character who's one of my favorite characters of all time," Ackles says. "It wasn't even on the page. I said, 'Can we make this character this person?' And they were like, 'If you can get this person — I believe they're working right now.' I made the call. He was literally working one day, had the next day off, so he flew in, did one scene, flew out and was working on his other project the next day."
