The Companion February 24, 2020 Share February 24, 2020 Sorry guys for dredging up what is a hot topic. I have no doubt I will have feelings about this down the road that are far more complicated. I also have sort of a different perspective as a mom through adoption as far as feeling protective over Dean and Sam here but also having thought about the potential for meeting a parent later in life. More on that in a later thread. 2 hours ago, gonzosgirrl said: I will never understand this perspective. Dean never asked her to be his mommy. Of all people he knows that his 'dream mom' was not the real woman. He's the one who traveled to the past and found out who she really was. Of course coming back was a huge shock to the system, and I don't think anybody begrudged her the need for time to adjust, or even to never adjust at all. But the way they wrote her, she was completely self-centered and unsympathetic. Yes, she left behind babies - but she was also afforded a chance to know her grown sons. There's a reason her treatment of Dean and Sam post-resurrection was so shocking to many people - because it was out of character from all we knew of her. Even if Dean's memories were rose-coloured, we were shown Mary in the past, and this ice-queen was not her. Once again, the storytelling and writing went off the rails. Just a few words would have made a world of different in how she was perceived, but they were more interested in making her a bad ass that the just made her an ass, instead. As far as asking her to be his mommy, I am not really saying that he is unrealistic or wrong any more than it is bad for me to wish I could go back to having my mom bring me red beans and rice when I am sick. I suspect I will feel differently about it down the road, but so far I am sympathetic to both. 1 Link to comment
