You may know I am a die hard Supernatural fan but this post is on my thoughts about the return of our beloved Mama Winchester.
The original issue I had with this topic of bringing back the reason the show existed aka it was Mama Winchester’s death that had the guys chasing the demon. How in the world does she suddenly show up? I wonder how many fans the show lost over this very concept.
I believe we have reached Jump the Shark territory. Oddly enough it has nothing to do with the character, Mary Winchester or the actor, Samantha Smith at all. I actually enjoy that she is on the show, they needed a woman to balance all of that J2(Jensen and Jared) testosterone. It is odd that this character before now was seen only in her nightgown, except that one time when she was in the heaven episode. However, the young Mary was in several episodes such as “In the Beginning: where Dean meets his grandparents and finds out his mother was a raised a hunter.
I do think there were other seasons that could have used her more however. Maybe after Dean came back to life in season 5 or when Sam was soulless in season 7. This current version of the show at times seems like an attempt to make sure that J2 has company on set instead of it just being the two of them like old times.
You know the old times when all those sexy rumors were flying around about the two of them, because rumor is the fans have nothing else to do, but I digress 🙂
So far my favorite episode of season what is it? Hmm 12 Was when Mary was conflicted about staying with the boys but instead went off on her own. So basically she shouldn’t be in every episode but like a good mother around when needed but otherwise doing whatever she needs to do to be herself.
Well that is just a little looksee in my head on that topic.
Have a great weekend!
