We find out that Jack didn't just hurt Mary in the last episode, he killed her accidentally in frustration when she wouldn't leave him alone about the violent manner in which he killed Nick. Jack enlists Rowena's help to try to resurrect Mary with a spell, but it does not work and they can only bring back Mary's dead body for Sam and Dean to burn in a hunter's funeral.

There really were no "baddies" in this episode. Jack was remorseful over killing Mary, even in his soulless state, and when Lucifer appeared it was only as Jack's subconscious. This one was about good intentions gone wrong and mistakes you can't fix. There was no real villain.

  • Well, one burning question was answered here; Mary is really gone.
  • Can Sam and Dean ever forgive Jack for what he's done?
  • Will Jack learn to control his temper now that he knows what his temper can do?
  • Will Rowena remain a firm Winchester ally? She really worked with them here.
  • How long will Sam and Dean consider Jack to be "family"?
  • Will Sam and Dean be able to forgive Cas for not telling them that he knew something was wrong with Jack?
  • Will Jack learn how to spell "Cass" (see episode trivia below)?

  • Jack has visions of Lucifer standing in for his subconscious.
  • Even Jack is not powerful enough to bring Mary back from the dead.
  • Mary is in heaven with John and at peace.
  • This means that John is in heaven.
  • Mary's death was instant and painless.
  • If John and Mary are sharing a heaven, earlier show canon would argue that John and Mary are soulmates.
  • Mary took on a mother role with Jack that we see in flashbacks.
  • Mary somewhat considers Jack Sam and Dean's son as she gives Sam advice about parenting in a flashback.
  • Mary didn't trust Cas much when she was first brought back to life. She didn't trust him enough to let her heal him after a hunt.
  • Cas admires Mary's abilities as a hunter.
  • Mary knows how important Cas is in the lives of Sam and Dean; telling Cas they were "never alone" even when she was dead.

  • Supernatural often kills off a major recurring character 3 episodes before the season finale and this year it was Mary.
  • Mary's initials have joined Sam and Dean's carved into the bunker's table
  • This is the first time the gates of heaven have opened since they were closed by Naomi in the episode Funeralia.
  • On Jack's phone, Cas' name is spelled "Cass".

  • In a flashback, Mary tells Cas that Sam and Dean were "never alone" even when she and John were dead; acknowledging the importance of Cas in their lives. This also references the "never homeless" sentiment from season 5's finale Swan Song. I could also mean that as long as they have each other, they are never alone.
  • Sam and Dean gave Mary's "empty shell" that Jack brought back a hunter's funeral.
