Big Sky Fans Are Loving The Supernatural Car Reference

"Big Sky" shows that there are still plenty of interesting crime stories left to be told. Based on "The Highway" series of novels by C.J. Box, the ABC series is set in Montana and follows the kidnapping of two young girls by a truck driver. As private detective Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and ex-cop Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick) try to find and rescue the two girls, the clock is ticking away on their safety.

Like "The Sinner," "Big Sky" has since moved on from its original premise and now sees Cassie and Jenny taking on other cases. While none of these cases are paranormal in nature, that didn't stop the show from making a clear reference to the hit CW horror drama series "Supernatural." As fans of the two shows clearly noticed, "Big Sky" paid tribute to the show and its iconic Chevrolet Impala in Season 3, Episode 6 ("The Bag and the Box").

Fans love the callbacks to Supernatural in Big Sky

Jensen Ackles joined "Big Sky" in Season 3 as Sheriff Beau Arlen, and the series took advantage of his presence in the latest episode to make a reference to "Baby," the black Chevy Impala that his character, Dean Winchester, drove across all 15 seasons of "Supernatural." As Beau Arlen talked about his love of classic cars in "The Bag and the Box," fans were quick to take to Twitter and point out the reference.

"Beau Arlean talking about classic American muscle cars. Hello to another Supernatural easter egg," wrote @starlight131618. @TaylorMcCarthy8 also caught the nod to Ackles' previous series, noting that this is becoming something of a pattern for "Big Sky" with his tweet: "The amount of #Supernatural Easter eggs in #BigSky is amazing."

Clearly, the two shows share a lot of fans between them, as other users were also quick to note the reference. "@BigSkyABC hidden compartment in the trunk... sounds familiar!" wrote @ALundquist5, noting that Dean's trunk also had a hidden compartment where he and his brother Sam (Jared Padalecki) hid their various demon-hunting and monster-fighting gear.

@soIdierbxy was happy to see the reference as well, writing: "This episode of Big Sky is superior already because [we] got a supernatural reference." Well, it's pretty clear that the writers know what they're doing with these little "Supernatural" callbacks, and it looks like they're definitely a hit with their fan base as well.
