Recap: Supernatural Episode 6.19 – Mommy Dearest

And you know? The way she said it? I believed her. I never thought I’d be capable of killing. I can barely slap someone. I am the ultimate non-confrontational person. But the minute Mo Chuisle was born, that changed. Now I can tell you without a doubt that if my baby girl was in danger or was hurt, I’d literally do whatever I had to to save her—including killing, if necessary. And I get a bit Mama Tiger around her even with other kids sometimes who aren’t being very nice. I know, I know. I’m harmless in that particular situation, though. I just…stare and snarl a bit.

Dean: You’re going for mother of the year defense? You?

Eve: It happens to be true. Maybe you’d believe me if I looked a little more like this.

Annnddd…she morphs into Mary.

Dean: You bitch.

Loved his you don’t touch her tone.

Eve: She died to protect you.

Okay, so I have to say, it was good to see Samantha Smith. I think she’s a beautiful woman and I found I liked listening to her version of Eve more than the dead-eyed, creepy-calm smile of the young brunette. She was engaging and believable. But…I don’t know that I get why they thought having Eve morph into Mary was necessary. I mean, I can see where it set them off-balance a bit at first, the shock of seeing that face again.

But after Zach played the evil!Mary card in his warped Heaven, I think the whole demons/angels using Mary as a way to get to the boys—I mean, unless they were really and truly using her soul like Crowley apparently promised Gramps—would be kind of a wasted effect. And, other than having fun watching Samantha Smith, it really seemed to be. Shock and denial washed over Sam’s face for a moment before he looked away. Dean looked pale and surprised as he barely resisted saying her name, but he still resisted, sassed, and fought back.

Okay, that’s my two cents. Moving on.

Dean (looking down—away from the image of Mary): This conversation is over. If you’re gonna kill us, kill us.

Eve: You? It’s Crowley I want dead.

Me: *blink* *blink* Did she just say Crowley?

Dean: You’re too late, there. That little Limey mook roasted months ago.

Eve: Crowley’s alive.

Sam: That’s impossible.

Eve (coming around the corner to lean on the counter next to Sam): I see his face through every child he strings up and skins.

Me: OMG I knew it!! And OMG Cas is in league with Crowley!! And OMG poor boys!!!

(That was actually said out loud.)

Dean’s jaw clenches.

Eve: Why is he hurting my babies?

Dean: He…wants Purgatory.

Eve: Is that what he told you? It’s about the souls.

Sam (flinching a bit and speaking in a strained whisper): What about them?
