Best Broment


Their gravesite chat about their Mom and her 'adjusting'.

Dean: Yeah she's adjusting.

Sam: No she's struggling. I mean she's trying  to bury herself in hunting to avoid dealing.

Sam: Years of personal experience...I don't know man, like Mother, like Sons.

Most Moving/Haunting Moments


For this I have to go with Mary's story and what she has been facing since returning -

Not only trying to adapt to the new technology of the internet .... 

SPN 1000

...and cell phones.... 

SPN 0144

But also having doubts about fitting in.

Mary: Castiel, after you left heaven, when did it start to feel like you fit, like you belonged here?

Castiel: Well, I'm still not sure I do.  Mary, you do belong here. 

SPN 0104

....And then there is dealing with the reality and guilt of what happened to her family after she died.

Reading John's journal had to have been one of the hardest things to deal with, reading his words as he described his grief and obsession for revenge, detailing his hunts, and how he had to learn to identify and kill these supernatural creatures. To read how his home had become either the Impala or cheap motels as he traveled from town to town..

SPN 0013

A far cry from the man she once described to Dean in 'In The Beginning' as "He's sweet, kind, even after the war, after everything, he still believes in happily-ever-after. He's everything a hunter isn't.

The worst of it all was not only that this had become John's life but the life for her two sons as well. A life she never wanted for them. Something we also learned from 'In The Beginning'

"I wanna get out, this job, this life--I hate it. I want a family, I want to be safe. You know the very worst thing I can think of? Is for my family to be raised into this like I was. I won't let it happen!"

SPN 0596

Working this case also had reminders of what she had lost and missed out on since returning. Seeing the crib and what looked to be an infant sleeping  ..

SPN 0004

must have reminded her of her little Sammy sleeping in his crib. 


And a fair haired little Lucas  ....

SPN 0006

must have reminded her of her own fair haired little boy Dean. 

This leading into the next category .....

Saddest Moment

12.03 571 Mary Goodbye

Mary realizing that things are not working out and that she needs to leave.

Mary: I miss John. I miss my boys.

Sam: We're right here Mom.

Mary: I know, in my head, but I'm still mourning them as I knew them. My baby Sam and my little boy Dean. Just feels like yesterday we were together in heaven and now...I'm here and John is gone and they're gone. Every moment I spend with you reminds me every moment I lost with them. And I thought hunting, working, would clear my head and....

Sam: Mom what are you trying to say?

Mary: I have to go...I'm sorry, I'm so, so sorry. I just need a little time. 


When she tries to approach Dean, he steps back away from her.

however she is able to give Sam a farewell hug.
