Day 23: Favourite Winchester family member other than Sam or Dean

I see the choice as either John, Mary, Adam, Henry or the Impala (shuddup - she's totally a Winchester). There's also Dean's daughter from Slice Girls - but yeah, I don't think she can be counted even though she's officially a Winchester.

I actually really like all the Winchesters but if I HAD to pick a favourite it would be John. Mainly because he's such a driving force in the show. He's shaped the boys' characters and has such a major impact on the SPN 'verse. He's complex. layered and interesting. He was hard on his boys, but for a good reason. I think we have to believe they have survived so long because of him (and the fans of course, but that's a different story).

One of my favourite moments is in Dead Man's Blood when Sam and John share a laugh together. I think we see a glimpse of the real man and his deep love for both his boys. He was messed up - but that's what makes him so damn interesting.


I think Mary is also an interesting character. Though I always think about how her making that one deal changed the course of all of their lives (which, yay - we wouldn't have a story without it). It's very cool that she was a hunter. Though I think a shame that the Campbells as a family were represented in such a bad light (I wanted to see more of Gwen in particular).

That moment between John and Sam is one of my favorite moments too!

I loved it! And I'm so glad they included it - we may never have known the depth of Sam and John's relationship without it.

I would say my favourite Winchester is Mary! I love the actresses who play her and just consider young Mary to be a wonderful badass. My heart always breaks for her in The Song Remains the Same when she realises the brothers are condemned to the life she fought so hard to help them escape from :(

Oh yes. Mary is totally awesome - such an interesting and heartbreaking story line. And the catalyst for it all really.
