Ruby was a fictional character on The CW Television Network's Supernatural portrayed by Katie Cassidy (Season 3) and Genevieve Cortese (Season 4). A demon, she first appears in the third season, rescuing Sam and Dean Winchester, and continues to assist them throughout the season. By season four, she has won Sam's trust and begins training him to kill demons with his powers. Dean remains distrustful of her, and in the Season Four finale, it is revealed that Ruby had been manipulating Sam for evil purposes since they first met. After her true motives are revealed, she is killed by the Winchesters.

Due to budgetary reasons, Katie Cassidy was replaced by Genevieve Cortese for the fourth season. Though the fans reacted negatively towards the character at first, Cortese and creator Eric Kripke felt that they became more accepting of her as the season progressed.

Appearances

In the beginning, not much is known about Ruby, a mysterious blonde first seen in the third season episode "The Magnificent Seven". She trails hunter Sam Winchester, and seemingly focuses on him throughout the episode, coming close to approaching him once but disappearing by the time he turns around. At the end of the episode, when Sam is in danger of being killed by Pride and two other demonic Sins, Ruby appears once again, this time wielding a knife with which she kills the demons. As opposed to using traditional demonic abilities such as telekinesis, she instead relies on conventional martial arts in the fight. Ruby then appears in the next episode, "The Kids Are Alright", and informs Sam that there is work to be done, referring to the changelings present in the episode. She does not return until the end of the episode, whereupon Sam demands she tell him who she is. She finally relents, revealing herself to be a demon. Sam threatens to shoot her, but then decides to let her live and continue to "help him". Ruby does so in "Sin City", helping hunter Bobby Singer to restore power to the Colt.

In "Malleus Maleficarum", it is revealed that she used to be a witch who sold her soul to a demon before her death during the Plague. Ruby later tells Dean Winchester that she can't save his soul. She adds that she still remembers what it's like to be human and says that she isn't the same as the other demons, though she wishes she were. Ruby returns in "Jus in Bello", offering to perform a spell that will destroy the attacking horde of demons, though it will also kill her. However, because the spell requires a human virgin's heart, Sam and Dean don't allow her to perform it.

In the season finale, Dean captures Ruby in a Devil's Trap painted on the floor, steals her knife, and leaves with Sam to face the demon Lilith, who holds the contract for Dean's soul. During the brothers' campaign, Ruby somehow escapes and tracks them down, helping them find Lilith. The demon, however, escapes, and the trio run away from the hellhound tracking Dean down. During the mayhem, Lilith takes over Ruby's host, sending Ruby back to Hell. However, Lilith's powers have no effect on Sam, and just before Sam can strike her with Ruby's knife, the demon exits Ruby's host, leaving the body limp, presumably dead.

As revealed in the later episode "I Know What You Did Last Summer", Ruby eventually convinces Lilith to trust her again, and Ruby is set free from Hell with instructions to kill Sam. She betrays this promise to Lilith, however, and sets about helping Sam again. She tracks him down, but he rejects her since she is possessing a human host. To solve this, Ruby takes possession of a body recently declared to be dead. They sleep together at least once, and she brings him out of his downward spiral towards self-destruction. Consequently, Sam now trusts Ruby implicitly. She then begins training him in using his demonic abilities to exorcise demons.

After the resurrection of Dean in the fourth season, Ruby urges Sam to tell him the truth about what he had been doing before Dean finds out on his own. In the episode "Are You There, God? It's Me, Dean Winchester", Ruby becomes terrified and stops associating with Sam out of fear of being killed after she learns that Dean was resurrected by an angel (who are the enemies of demons). This is apparently short lived, as in the next episodes "In The Beginning" and "Metamorphosis", she and Sam sneak off in the middle of the night to interrogate a demon to learn the location of Lilith.

Later, in "I Know What You Did Last Summer", Ruby alerts the Winchester brothers to the plight of Anna, a young woman who can hear angels and is wanted alive by the demons for information. She helps them to safeguard Anna, and they eventually discover that Anna is a fallen angel. Following Sam's plan in the subsequent episode, she destroys a hex bag that cloaks their location, and summons the demon Alastair, hoping to trade Anna in exchange for the demons leaving Sam and Dean alone. Ruby is then captured by Alastair and forced to lead Alastair to the Winchesters and Anna. They find Sam, Dean, and Anna in a barn with a group of angels; Dean has agreed to trade the angels Anna for Sam's life. In the subsequent fight between the angels and demons, Anna steals her grace, which is kept in a vial around one of the angel's necks, and is transformed into her glowing angelic form. In the explosion of light created by the process, Alastair vanishes.

In "Criss Angel is a Douchebag", Ruby appears and hassles Sam about working a case when over half of the 66 mystical seals have been broken. Breaking 66 of the seals will allow the evil angel Lucifer to escape from hell. Sam later leaves with Ruby for an unknown destination. In "On the Head of a Pin", Ruby helps Sam find where the angels have taken Dean. It is also revealed in this episode what has caused Sam's boost in power: he is drinking Ruby's demonic blood.

In the fourth season finale, it is revealed that Ruby has been manipulating Sam since they met, gaining his trust so that she could trick him into killing Lilith in order to break the final seal and release Lucifer. After her true motives are revealed, she is killed by the Winchesters with her own knife.

Development

In the season four finale, it is revealed that Ruby has been posing as Sam's companion with the goal of betraying him in order to free her master Lucifer. Due to the fact that, as creator Eric Kripke put it, "the fans are a protective and occasionally nervous bunch", Ruby was meant to be introduced in "small doses". He wanted fans to know that the show would always be about Sam and Dean Winchester, and nothing else. "[Ruby and Bela are] there for important plot elements, but it's not the Ruby and Bela show, nor is it about the four of them cruising around in the Impala together. It's about the guys." Therefore, Ruby was not introduced to be a love interest for Sam and Dean Winchester, but rather to be an antagonistic character.

Actress Katie Cassidy, who portrayed Ruby in season three, described the character as an ally of Sam and Dean who "also likes to stir up a little trouble." Ruby is "manipulative" and in control of her situation. Genevieve Cortese, who played the character in season four, audtioned for an unnamed "love interest". Halfaway through season four, Cortese felt that while the character was manipulating Sam, she was possibly also in love with him.

Adjusting for the role

When Cassidy, who originally auditioned for the role of Bela Talbot, joined the series, she had to train in kickboxing to be able to perform Ruby's martial arts skills. Because of this, she tried to do as many of the fight scenes as she could, rather than relying on her stunt double. As well, because of her height compared to the lead actors - Cassidy being 5'7" and Jared Padalecki being 6'4" - she had to wear tall, spiky high heels, leading at times to her losing her balance. Due to Ruby's manipulative ways, Cassidy looked to Sharon Stone's performance in the film Basic Instinct for inspiration.

Due to budgetary reasons, Cassidy was let go after the third season, and a new actress was brought in. When auditioning, however, Genevieve Cortese did not know it was for Ruby, as the character was merely described as "a love interest". To prepare her for the role, she was given DVDs of Katie Cassidy's portrayal of Ruby. Cortese found it at first strange stepping into Cassidy's shoes, stating, "I was conflicted over where Ruby is now versus where she’s come from." Taking from the third season finale in which Dean is sent to Hell, Cortese also plays the character as having some guilt over his death.

Reception

While critics had an unfavorable view of Ruby's introduction, they eventually grew to accept the character. BuddyTV staff columnist Don Williams felt that the addition of Ruby was a "cheap ploy" to attract teen male viewers, and that Cassidy "was cast more for her looks than her acting prowess". He also felt that the character distracts viewers from the "brotherly bond that made the show so special in the first place". However, he later admitted that she "remains one of the more interesting and ambiguous evildoers on the series". Similarly, Karla Peterson of the The San Diego Union-Tribune, believing that the character had died in the third season finale, felt that Ruby "got gone just as [she was] getting interesting".

Fans were also very wary at first of bringing in female characters to the male-dominated show. To make matters worse, when coming up with the scenes for the auditions for Ruby and Bela Talbot, Kripke and executive producer Robert Singer wrote lackluster ones that were not intended to be used in the show. Fans quickly came across them on casting sites, and developed a feeling that the characters "really look like they suck". However, Kripke believed that fans would change their minds about Ruby after learning of her demonic side. By the middle of the third season, Kripke felt that enough fans were "responding positively to vindicate the character". When the character returns in Season Four, she is much different than her third season counterpart. In Cortese's words, Ruby did not walk in saying, "I'm going to kick everyone's ass and be tough," but was rather a "total 180 from [how she was] last season". Cortese feels that while the drastic change made fans angry, the flashbacks provided in "I Know What You Did Last Summer" shed some light on Ruby's new mindset and made fans more accepting of the character.
