THEN: The teenager in Lebanon gets impaled by Jack; Nick gets killed by Jack; Mary gets killed by Jack. Dean says, “We fight.” Cas says, “I failed you; I failed Jack.” Dean tells him he should go to heaven and get Mary back. Jack tries to bring Mary back – spell casting. Lucifer (or Jack’s mind-created image of Lucifer) talking to Jack. The burning pyre. “It didn’t work.”
NOW: The bunker is filled with lots of strangers dressed in rough work clothes – these must be the surviving AU hunters. They are sipping from open bottles and talking quietly and respectfully. Mary’s picture in a frame and other mementos are on the lighted map table. Dean, flanked by Cas and Sam, comes through a doorway and stands in the entrance, a few steps above the map room. Dean thanks the hunters for being there, saying that, while she was family, “her family went beyond just us.” He mentions how they fought with her both in the AU world and on hunts here, saying that he and Sam had gotten a second chance to get to know her. They’d gotten to know her as more than just a mom but as someone who was tough, strong, stubborn, opinionated, skillful, able to handle their old man. He jokes that she couldn’t cook, then, holding up his bottle, says, “Mom, you weren’t here long enough, but we’re so glad for the time we had. Goodbye, Mom.” Sam echoes quietly, “Goodbye, Mom.” Everyone drinks to Mary. Suddenly a machete smashes in the head of one of the hunters. He stands for a moment, eyes wide, blood spilling from the ax embedded in his skull before collapsing to the floor. AltBobby enters in his plaid shirt and ball cap. He smiles.
The Winchester's family reunion has been something I've always dreamed of but never really believed would happen. I was thrilled that they were finally able to do it, even though it took 14 Seasons and 300 episodes! I only wish they had dedicated more time to the reunion, but I will cherish what has been given to us.
Wow, Episode 300! It's hard to believe there was a time when Supernatural sat on the fence of being cancelled after season 2 and then again after seasons 3 and 4. But it 'survived' much like our beloved brothers.
I very much wanted to do a tribute in honour of this monumental occasion. I know Jim Croce's "Time in a Bottle" is a sad song, but I felt it was most fitting for this bittersweet episode. I hope you like it.
Some of you might know that I enjoy watching a Winchester bleed, preferably while another family member is nearby. Now, I don’t consider myself a particularly violent person. In real life the sight of another person in pain isn’t something I relish. I avoid confrontation, run away from fights, and abhor bullies. Most of my favorite scenes on Supernatural, however, seem to contain pain and fear. Go figure.
Anyways, here are some of my favorite scenes which involve bleeding Winchesters through the years. I’m not including the times that the brothers hurt each other. I have a harder time with that. I also won't be able to include every bloody scene in every season, but my dear readers can add their favorite scenes to the comments section. That'll be very welcome.

Declarations and cliffhangers – that’s what it’s all about.
The Boys Are Back in Town
(Probably Time To Flee)
Much like episode eighteen, episode nineteen is often a positivity injection of some sort as we near the pinnacle of the major plot. The pieces of the puzzle are coming together, major players begin to gather, and hope is renewed that the mission can be accomplished in one form or another.
This is an exciting week for the #SPNFamily! Supernatural's 300th episode airs on Thursday, February 7, and the anticipation is building! Supernatural fans have been with the show every step of the way, supporting not only the show but the cast, executive team and crew as well. So of course some fans have thought of ways to celebrate the milestone in solidarity with the Supernatural creative team and fan family! Pick you favorites and join the fun!
Supernatural 14.11 "Damaged Goods" left much of the Supernatural family devastated, frantically worried about Dean. Since we can't do anything but wait and worry until we learn how Sam and Castiel will save Dean, let's lighten the mood a bit and have some Supernatural fun!
In Supernatural's 14.10 "Nihilism", the archangel Michael locked Dean into a dream world within his own mind. Thinking contentment would keep Dean pacified, Dean became the owner and bar keep at a quaint home town establishment called Rocky's Bar. This was both Dean's perfect retirement scenario and fans' dreams come true! The decor in the bar was a virtual treasure trove of call backs to earlier episodes, and Easter eggs of references that only dedicated Supernatural fans would recognize. Let's go on a virtual tour of the bar and see what we can uncover along the way!
I've done some of the research for you, identifying obvious references and hidden gems. I also enlisted the help of Deb, @Drzyley on Twitter, to get the ball rolling on finding some Easter Eggs of earlier Supernatural episodes. The rest is up to you! I'll provide the screen shots; YOU make the connections with earlier episodes or fan insider information! Who's up for a trivia treasure hunt?
