On August 19, 1975, Mary Campbell married John Winchester and that union produced two strong men who would go on to save the world, Supernatural’s Sam and Dean (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles).
For twelve seasons on The CW’s longest running show Supernatural, we have watched Kansas born brothers Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) travel the road so far in their classic 1967 Impala (lovingly called Baby) on a never-ending quest to rid the world of supernatural evil. It is a life threatening, thankless job, but such is their lot when saving people and hunting things constitutes the family business.
With Season 12 pass the halfway point and quickly approaching its finale, there are a slew of nagging questions remaining, but the one that I keep pondering: Could Mary Winchester be soulless?
Samantha Smith has returned to Supernatural in Season 12 as Mary Winchester to the delight of fans. The character is a beloved part of the history of Supernatural. Mary is having a difficult time adjusting to the changes in the thirty-three years since she’s been gone. After all, Mary left a four-year old and an infant and now she has to get to know her sons as grown men and hunters. But she is determined to put the pieces together and find her place in a different world (and life) she left.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Samantha in May. Despite her very busy shooting schedule for Supernatural, she graciously agreed to a brief follow-up interview to talk about Mary in Season 12. Read below to see what she had to say.
“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.”
Honore de Balzac
When you take out the monsters, the angels, the demons or scores of other phenomena that have been an integral part of Supernatural for the past eleven seasons, the heart of this exceptional show is rooted in family.
Supernatural aired its Season 12 Premiere “Keep Calm and Carry On” on October 13 and it was a thoughtful hour full of physical pain and emotional intensity.
