Mary Winchester is a pivotal character to Supernatural, her death is the reason John becomes a hunter. Her death is seen in the pilot when the demon Azazel kills her in Sam’s nursery. She has been resurrected in the ending of season 11, this is where the story for season 12 could get interesting. Some fans think it is a thank you gift but we don’t really know that yet, in a big twist it might not even be Mary, whatever it is nobody knows yet.
A lot of fans have a soft spot for Mary, her story is woven throughout Supernatural from conversations to pictures of her from the boys past. Some consider her a bit of a badass and cool, others have a general fondness for her because of who she is. Either way, it will be interesting to see what will happen in Season 12.

- What Is and What Should Never Be
- All Hell Breaks Loose Part 1
- In The Beginning
- When The Levee Breaks
- The Song Remains The Same

Mary’s story is interesting, including the back story of her family life and her relationship with John, these episodes are worth watching for a bit of background.
