While John couldn’t stay too long due to the rapidly changing timeline, his return did allow both brothers to wrap up some unfinished business as Dean was able to show his father that he was able to find a family of his own and Sam was finally able to forgive him for their rough childhood. Mary also got to say a proper goodbye to the love of her life while her boys properly bid farewell to their father, which was one of the more tearjerking moments in the series’ entire thirteen season run.
As for how the entire ordeal will affect the brothers moving forward, Jensen Ackles tells Entertainment Weekly, “I think it’s going to be fuel for them. For both brothers, to have a family unit is something they’ve never truly experienced, especially Sam. To catch a glimpse of that and to have a moment of reprieve from the life that they’ve been buried in for so many years, and to be able to sit back and see their mom and dad together, have a moment with Dad face-to-face, they may not have been ready for it, but it’s something I feel will give them a boost, a bit of a fill-up.”
Jared Padalecki corroborates Ackles’ words and adds, “I feel like it will almost solidify them in how they feel because they had the chance for a Faustian deal, they had that chance to be like, ‘We’ll be fine. We can live in the bunker. We have our family,’ but they chose to stay the course. They strayed for a little bit and went, ‘That sounds great, but you know what, we’re willing to sacrifice even this for what we’re doing in our reality.’ So in some way shape or form, it almost strengthens who they are and who they’ve been for many many seasons, so I think it will change them just in strengthening and solidifying their resolve.”
