Anti Season 11
Part 5: Mary Winchester
Here’s something that will definitely be controversial to some people. I don’t think Mary Winchester should have been brought back at the end of the season. Don’t get me wrong, I love her, and we don’t know what they’re going to be doing with her yet, but… I’m worried. More than that, I’m annoyed.
Throughout the entire show, they’ve been missing this mother figure. And that’s become a symbol for them moving on as well. Sam’s never met his mom, he has no memory of her. He’s said before that he “has never experienced a home” like that. All this however, contributes to the characters and the plot.
Bringing Mary back now seems like it will do more harm to the plot than good. The entire dynamic of the show has the potential to change. Suddenly introducing their mother as a character, and I suspect she’ll be prominent (how could she not be?) will change the way that Sam and Dean interact, with each other, with their mom, and there will simply be more conflict.
This was not a good move on the writers’ part—I think they simply wanted the shock factor of suddenly bringing back their mother.
“What will be more exciting than God’s sister?”
“Oh I know, let’s just mess with the whole plot of the show and bring back their mom!”
Feel free to send me messages about this, but be smart about points you bring up. Don’t just send me, “No, you’re wrong.”
Tell me why. I love a good debate, and would love to discuss why or why not you agree. However, keep in mind all the things I say in my Anti Season 11 posts are subject to change, as they are opinion. If I am proved wrong about anything, then I am proved wrong. That’s all there is to it.
