‘Supernatural’: Dean Sacrifices Everything – John Winchester Returns

Supernatural with Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and his brother Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) promises an emotional night. Hope you have your tissues ready. In the episode, “Prophets and Loss” Supernatural’s Dean will bury himself alive in a coffin and have it sent out to sea — in order to trap Michael. Pretty heavy stuff, right? But Dean has always been the self-sacrificing/altruistic type. The question is will Sam and Castiel (Misha Collins) allow him to go through with his suicide mission or will they be able to stop it before it’s too late?

Supernatural: Brothers Until the End

Throughout the entire Supernatural episode, fans will see Sam and Castiel continue to try and get through to Dean. They try to convince him that if they have more time, they can figure out other ways to defeat Michael. That he doesn’t have to give up his life. But thanks to his talk with Death, Dean’s convinced the buried-alive option is the only way. He tries to pretend he’s okay with dying this way, but everyone knows better.  Dean Winchester just does what he usually does when he wants to avoid reality — throw himself full force into demon-hunting.

He ends up focusing on how to stop Donatello (Keith Szarabajka), who is in a coma and unknowingly scrambling the order of future prophets.  They may have to let Donatello die in order to save the prophets. This dilemma is a decent distraction, but it can only hold off Dean’s plan for so long. When it comes time for Dean to meet his fate, he will want Sam to be right there with him. Of course, Sam would have it no other way on Supernatural.

Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester – His Emotional Goodbye

After 14 years of watching Supernatural, it’s kind of hard to believe fans will have to say goodbye to Dean for good. Dean and Sam Winchester have been through so much together and to have their adventure end like this is so heartbreaking.  So much so that even when Jensen Ackles was playing the coffin scene, the onset crew literally got emotional.

Sources say, Jensen Ackles revealed some people on Supernatural were crying when he played the scene where Dean Winchester (who is trapped in the coffin) is  desperately trying to say goodbye to Sam on the phone, but loses the signal.  Dean Winchester is then so overcome with emotion that he starts to panic and cry as he realizes the hopelessness of the situation. He may never see Sam, his mom, Castiel or Jack ever again.

John Winchester returns to Supernatural

Thankfully a miracle – in the form of a wish – frees Dean Winchester from the coffin and he’s reunited with his family once again. This Supernatural reunion happens in the 300th episode entitledLebanon“. Showrunner Andrew Dabb went all out and tapped a super fan-favorite to come back on the show for the best on-screen reunion ever! John Winchester (The Walking Dead’s “Negan”, Jeffrey Dean Morgan).  Talk about a serious TV show cross-over!

In his interview with Entertainment Weekly, Andrew Dabb revealed, “The 300th is in a lot of ways, for Sam Winchester and Dean, about home. You’re dealing with two guys who, when this story started and for the bulk of our show, never had a home.”

Which is why when Dean Winchester comes home, and everyone sees John Winchester, the whole family is shook. Besides having a lot of questions about how he was able to return, they are just beyond grateful to have John back. Originally, John had given up his life to save his son, Dean. Fans were depressed and inconsolable when he excited the show.

Now that he’s coming back… Well, let’s just say: Thank God, Daddy’s home.  So many issues seem to resolve themselves now that they are reunited. John Winchester gets to see his boys again which is so beautiful and heart-warming. They get the closure they need after losing their dad so abruptly.

Supernatural reunites John and Mary Winchester

John Winchester is also able to be with his wife, Mary Winchester (Samantha Morton) who he thought was dead/killed by demons. Actually Mary was the reason John became a demon-hunter — to avenge her death. For him to see her alive again is so unreal and overwhelming. Not sure what this means for Mary and Bobby (Jim Beaver), but it’s so good to have the Winchester family together again!

Nick — Supernatural‘s Bad Penny

Despite being thrown in jail… Nick ( Mark Pellegrino) manages to convince Donna (or kill Donna) into letting him go free. Not sure if he’ll go another killing spree or run into Lucifer and agree to be his vessel again. Our guess is on the latter.

If so, he’ll definitely want to find Jack (Alexander Calvert) to finish what he started.  Thankfully, Jack has some of his powers back, so he will have a surprise for his good ol’ dad. Either way, it’s damn hard to get rid of Nick (and Lucifer for that matter), so it will be interesting to see what they do next.
