Their dad was a Men of Letters. Basically an analyst for the supernatural world. They didn’t directly fight with demons, but they knew magic and knew a lot about the supernatural world.
It doesn’t surprise me that John’s dad didn’t just leave him in the middle of the night. Sam and Dean have been too destined with the Apocalypse and Lucifer and Michael.
Dean shouldn’t have been that mad at Henry. He and Sam have been doing the same thing for a while now. They haven’t been able to have any relationships because of the job. Henry saved the world, so John could grow up in it.
The one thing I didn’t like about the episode was how little it went into the knights of hell. This was very interesting. Other than the Leviathan, there hasn’t been too many new creatures.
Maybe it’s something they can touch on later? I mean Abaddon can’t be the only one left. Can she? If she is the only one left, she seemed a little to easy to take care of. I mean if she’s that powerful I would think it would take at least a few episodes. Crowley has been around since season five and Sam and Dean still haven’t been able to kill him. Not that I’m complaining there. I like Crowley.
The last Man of Letters’, Larry, mentioned that Abaddon was a hired hand. So who hired her? And is he or she still alive?
This episodes opens up more doors for the storyline. Not that I’m not enjoying the current storyline, but eight years of a supernatural show can be hard to keep fresh. Charmed did it for eight seasons, Buffy the Vampire Slayer managed seven seasons, though the last two were on a different network. The Vampire Diaries is currently in it’s fourth season.
There is no word yet if Supernatural will be renewed for a ninth season. The storyline of closing the gates of hell seems like it could be leading to the end, but will they close the gates this season?
