If you caught the “Who Dunnit” type episode of Supernatural, titled “Ask Jeeves,” you have to admit, the butler DID NOT do it. But despite the excellent levity of the episode, if you stuck around through the credits, you saw the memorial statement:
In Memory Of
James A. MacCarthy
6-29-21 to 8-25-14
According to my sources, James is the father of the director of the episode, John MacCarthy. John has been with the Supernatural crew for some time, having worked on 58 episodes of the show and this was his first, full-blown director credit. He has also worked on Final Destination 3, Tru Calling, and Dark Angel as second assistant director.
His father, James, passed away peacefully on 8-25-14, having led a full life.
You can read about the man at Legacy.com. He truly did lead an impressive and full life. Something many people can only wish to aspire to.
Our condolences to Mr MacCarthy’s friends and family.
