Mary conversation anon from 2 days ago. Now that I've seen the promo pics, what if Ketch is the one to let slip the fact that they were behind the Colt mission during that table discussion with Ketch? It seems unlikely to happen, I just hate when we have information that the characters don't and they should know and agh!!
I KNOW, RIGHT?! You just want to yell at the screen until they hear you. (or maybe we have done that)
(and maybe Mr. Mittens has a name for that phenomenon, yelling at the screen in despair OH MY GOD NO TURN AROUND! TURN! AROUUUUUNNNNNDDDD! or whatever the appropriate piece of agonizing information is…)
(we actually call them Immortal Beloved moments)
(I may have had a minor breakdown the first time I saw it)
Anyhoodle on to the relevant bit of information here…
Ketch does like to brag about his fancy toys, and especially after Dean’s reaction to the grenade launcher (which Dean already has, he just hasn’t been able to actually fire it yet…), I can see Ketch trying to use his weapons as an enticement to lure Dean to work for him.
“Your mother may have told you stories about the Colt,” Ketch would say, thinking Dean was just as ignorant to the reality of the weapon’s existence as Mary. “There’s only five things in all of creation it can’t kill. Remarkable thing.”
“Yeah, I might’ve heard of it,” Dean would reply, schooling his face and shifting in his chair, orienting himself toward Ketch to demonstrate naive interest, because crap, if Ketch is after the Colt, then Dean needs to know about it.
“Well, your mother retrieved it for us some time ago,” Ketch replies with a knowing smile, thinking he’s surely got Dean on the hook now. “We haven’t found the right recipe for the bullets yet, the magic’s a bit arcane since the user manual’s been lost to the mists of time, but we’ll crack it eventually.”
Dean considers this carefully. Ketch obviously has no idea that Dean’s killed more things with that gun than anyone else on the planet. Hell, he even shot Lucifer in the face with it. Shit way to find out about the five things it can’t kill clause, but that’s his gun, and apparently Mary just gave it to Ketch without ever having said word one to him or Sam about it. Where the hell did she even find it?
“Sam and I have some experience with magic bullets. Maybe we could take a look at it sometime and see if we can’t get it operational for you.”
More like get it operational so Dean could shoot you, but whatever. It’s a start.
Something like that, anon? I could see something like that happening. Good thing Dean’s a better liar than Mary is…
