12 Years of Big Boss Battles: Supernatural Villainy for the Ages

12 Years of Big Boss Battles: Supernatural Villainy for the Ages

“I'm glad, honestly. I'm not saying we bury the thing, I'm saying we just save it for when we really need it. Crowley, Metatron -- the big boss fights.” – Sam, 9.22 Stairway to Heaven

After twelve seasons of Supernatural - including one heck of an intense ending to our most recent finale, Supernatural has had it’s fair share of villains and monsters. Afterall, it is a show about fighting the creatures that go bump in the nights. That said, just how many of those creatures have resulted in, as Sam says, the “big boss” battle?

Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Family Feud”


"The gleam in their eyes telegraphs only too clearly that they are hoping for a headline, which of course means something disparaging, because nothing makes such good copy as a feud." — Chuck Palahniuk


Did you feel like they were trying to wrap up the loose ends for Crowley in season 12? If you look at the season as a whole, the hints were clear for his character. Crowley got a thank you from Sam and Dean. He got a hug from an innocent. His son’s story was tied up and Gavin returned to his own time to die. Rowena’s story was wrapped up and we got inside knowledge why she did what she did. She died in the finale. Crowley had a buddy comedy with Castiel and Dean and face off battle with Lucifer.

Do you now see how front and center Crowley was with his family and frenemies? He even saved the Winchesters and Cas a few times. And towards the end we even found out he had the Colt and the British Men of Letters were working with him. In the end he sacrificed himself because he was fond of the Winchesters more than demons and Hell. His last stand off with Lucifer and his “bye boys” was his “mischief managed” redemption swan song.


The MacLeod trio


SN1207b 0176b


Crowley (Father Crowley,Fergus Roderick MacLeod, King of the Crossroads & King of Hell)
Played by Mark Sheppard, Lauren Tom (8.02), Marco Soriano (9.16) and Kirsten Robek (11.01)

Don't worry about -- what, like Lucifer didn't worry? Or Michael? Or Lilith or Alastair or Azazel didn't worry?! Am I the only game piece on the board who doesn't underestimate those denim-wrapped nightmares?!
– Crowley, 6.20 The Man Who Would Be King

I will miss our old frenemy Crowley when we will head forward to season 13. He was witty, conniving, ruthless and he had quotes to die for. What a long strange trip it has been from season five when we first met him. RIP. "All Along the Watchtower" was Mark Sheppard's 70th appearance as Crowley and, for the time being, the last time we saw Sheppard play him.


SN1213a 0420b


Rowena MacLeod
Played by Ruth Connell

I hate you, because when I look into your eyes I see the woman I used to be, before magic, before the coven. When I was nothing but Rowena, the tanner's daughter. A pale, scared little girl, who smelled of filth and death. I hate you, because when you were born, your father said he loved me, then he went back to his grand wife and his grand house, whilst I lay pathetic and half dead on a straw mat -- my thighs slick with blood. I hate you, because if I didn't, I'd love you. But love, love is weakness. And I'll never be weak again.
– Rowena, 11.10 The Devil in the Details

Rowena grew on me over the episodes. I was not fond of the character at the start but she turned out to be as complex as her son. She turned out to be a frenemy also to the boys and well, if her death sticks, I guess I am little dissapointed we didn't get to see the MEGA coven.

Connell played Rowena for 23 episodes that are 10.03 Soul Survivor, 10.07 Girls, Girls, Girls, 10.09 The Things We Left Behind, 10.10 The Hunter Games, 10.14 The Executioner's Song, 10.16 Paint It Black, 10.17 Inside Man, 10.18 Book of the Damned, 10.19 The Werther Project, 10.21 Dark Dynasty, 10.22 The Prisoner, 10.23 Brother's Keeper, 11.03 The Bad Seed, 11.09 O Brother Where Art Thou?, 11.10 The Devil in the Details, 11.18 Hell's Angel, 11.22 We Happy Few, 11.23 Alpha and Omega, 12.02 Mamma Mia, 12.03 The Foundry, 12.08 LOTUS, 12.11 Regarding Dean and 12.13 Family Feud.


SN1213a 0029b


Gavin MacLeod
Played by Adam Groves (6.04) and Theo Devaney (9.21 & 12.13)

The ship went down? Well, that's a good fit with the rest of my life.
– Gavin MacLeod, 9.21 King of the Damned

Not the best family to be born into. Gavin was a good lad even if he made some bad choices before. Crowley was not the best father material but still he had a son that was honorable and did the right thing in the end. The second Gavin was actually pretty sweet. He was in episodes 6.04 Weekend at Bobby's, 9.21 King of the Damned and 12.13 Family Feud.

Molitva/Prayer by Marija Šerifović


Ni oka da sklopim,
Postelja prazna tera san,
A ?ivot se topi
I nestaje brzo, k'o dlanom o dlan.

K'o razum da gubim,
Jer stvarnost I ne primećujem,
Jo? uvek te ljubim,
Jo? uvek ti slepo verujem.

K'o luda, ne znam kuda,
Ljubavi se nove bojim,
A dane, ?ive rane,
Vi?e ne brojim.

Molitva, kao ?ar na mojim usnama je,
Molitva, mesto reči samo ime tvoje.
(I) Nebo zna, kao ja,
Koliko puta sam ponovila,
To nebo zna, ba? kao ja,
Da je ime tvoje moja jedina




I can’t close my eyes

Empty bed chases dream away
And life melts
And disappears fast, in the twinkling of an eye

Like I’m losing my mind,
Cause I can’t even notice the real world
I still love you, I still trust you blindly

Like a lunatic, I don’t know where to go
a new love scares me
and days, open wounds
I don’t count anymore

Prayer, like a fire on my lips
prayer, instead of words, your name only
Heaven knows, like I do
how many times I’ve repeated
heaven knows, just like I do
that your name is my only

But I can’t lie to God
lie as long as I pray
and I lie if I say
that I don’t love you


Marija Šerifović born 14 November 1984) is a Serbian singer. She won the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 with the song "Molitva". Šerifović is the daughter of Verica Šerifović, also a notable singer. She was also one of the judges on Eurosong to choose the Irish entry for Eurovision Song Contest 2008 and sang Molitva to close the show. She was also a member of the International Jury in Melodifestivalen 2009, the selection for the Swedish entry to Eurovision Song Contest 2009.


SN1213a 0401b




Crowley: Oh, you'll resist, at first. But the humiliation will eat at you. Until, finally, you're worn down by your utter helplessness. And you call me... Master. You brag of your superior power. Well, genius trumps brute force. I've had a dozen of my most loyal studying the cage where you were held at the molecular level. They managed to replicate the material. They made those chains. Getting you here... well, that was a different matter.


Mr. Ketch: This work. It's demanding and must come first. The Men of Letters is my family.
Mary: I'm sorry. Nothing comes before my family, not with me.
Mr. Ketch: Really? Or is that just what you want to believe? You're different when you talk to them. Softer. Weaker. Not an insult, just an observation. But when you hunt, Mary... you're one of the best I've ever seen.Now you might play at being the good mummy, but when you're in the thick of it, nothing but a blade in your hand and blood in the air, that's the real you, the best you. And I think you know it. And I think that scares the hell out of you.


Crowley: So that was all drivel you were spewing about Gavin doing the right thing?
Rowena: It was the right thing. Maybe for Gavin, certainly for me. It allowed me to watch you suffer the loss of a child.
Crowley: Payback.
Rowena: I'm your mother, dear. Who better to crush your shriveled heart?

References and Minutiae


"Family Feud" is reference to the game show of the same name.

The teacher's death in the pre-title sequence is reminiscent of Johnny Depp's death in A Nightmare on Elm Street. Watch the scene here.

Like Raphael's first vessel, Donnie Finnerman, Nick would have been rendered in a Persistent Vegetative State from archangel possession, making it impossible for him to verbally consent. While not stated in the episodes, one can assume Raphael and Lucifer gained reentry into their vessels through subconscious means.

Mallena's Supernatural Musings: 10.19 "The Werther Project"

I was underwhelmed with season ten for most of its run, so it was wonderful to watch an episode as thrilling as this one.  It has many of my favorite Supernatural elements: a scary house, great backstory, suspense, blood draining, brotherly love, surprise callbacks of yore, and a tense plot that keeps things moving at a brisk pace.
