On Wednesday night’s Supernatural, Dean and Sam’s paternal grandfather Henry revealed that his son John and grandsons were supposed to be…book nerds!
While mom Mary was from a clan of hunters, the Winchesters come from a line of Men of Letters, who are keepers of knowledge that they share with a select group of hunters. Cupid brought the brawn and the brains together by uniting Mary and John — but after traveling to 2013 and dying in the arms of Dean and Sam, Henry never made it back to his time, leading his son to believe his father abandoned him. And so John never fulfilled his legacy and instead became “a hunter through necessity,” says executive producer Bob Singer.
Now Dean and Sam are left with Henry’s “key,” aka a box that holds scrolls and all sorts of valuable information. At the episode’s end, they make plans to lock it away in the safest place on Earth, and we’ll see that location next Wednesday.
“It’s a really stunning set,” describes Singer. “It’s full of mysteries. It’ll become kind of a home base for the boys. We’re really excited about it. After eight years of never having a home base, this will be home base for quite some time.
