As a word of warning, there’s a little bit of spoilery content. Nothing that will ruin the actual show, but a tweet from one of the guest stars.

Mary Manchin shared about receiving dailies on Twitter. For her, it means the start of finding bits and pieces for the gag reel. We all know that this is one of the most important parts of the filming process. It’s the moment on the DVDs that we all wait for. Some directors are better than others when it comes to running takes longer and allowing the cast to continue ad-libbing.

One of the ad-libbed moments led to the iconic “Eye of the Tiger” production at the end of Supernatural Season 4’s “Yellow Fever.” What could we get this time?

It turns out that some material may have come from the first day of filming. Sam Smith quickly replied with a hands up emoji to say that she may have given some material.

Well, the Supernatural Season 14 dailies aren’t just about the gag reel. The dailies consist of the raw, unedited footage gained from one day of filming, according to Variety. This means all the extra takes to get one scene finished, the bloopers, the mistakes, and the questions.

The footage is used by directors and some of the cast and crew to get an idea of how the filming is progressing. It’s a good chance to see if a certain reaction worked or whether something needs filming again to fix a sounding issue or lighting problem. By looking at things by the day, it’s easier to refilm when and where necessary than having a whole episode finished and ready!

Dailies can also be referred to as rushes or daily ruses in the UK and Canada (and in animation).
