Do you have a favorite teacher? On the other hand, do you still remember a nightmare teacher, someone who crushed your spirit or treated you unfairly? Teachers influence us all, for good or bad, and most of us have strong feelings about those who taught us. Supernatural addressed this topic in the episode "After School Special."
"After School Special" (4.13), which was primarily set in a high school in 2009, also gave us a look at the Winchesters' high school days back in 1997. Upon realizing that, I was prepared to see the common characterization of an inflexible, petty, dictatorial teacher who tyrannizes and belittles students. Instead, I found a compelling glimpse of an unsung hero - Mr. Wyatt. Though the scenes with him were short, Mr. Wyatt demonstrated several attributes of a good teacher, and, in so doing, he provided Sam with life-changing inspiration. If we consider why Mr. Wyatt had such a lasting impact on Sam, perhaps this model teacher's lessons can extend beyond his Supernatural classroom.
Episodes 10 & 11 of Supernatural's season 15 have raised this question. What is a true hero? What does a true hero do? What defines them? Is it having heroes’ luck? Or is it more?
In Supernatural 15.08, “Our Father Who Aren’t in Heaven,” Sam once again had to bravely face the massive trauma he suffered in The Cage. Though he never faltered, you could tell... it must have been hard on him.
