  • Mary to Jack: “How about you? Feeling better?”
    Jack to Mary: “Everybody keeps asking me that.”
    Mary to Jack: “We’re family. It’s our job.”
    Jack to Mary: “Well, it’s annoying.”
  • Nick to Dean: “I get you, Dean. You and me, we’re almost like brothers, you know. Michael-you, Lucifer-me. We both know what it’s like to be hog tied to a nuclear warhead, Man. You’re not the same after something like that, are you? Being one with one of them…changes you; makes you more than human.”
  • Sam: “Nick is locked down in our bunker. How’s he even a threat?”
    Mary to Sam: “He’s always a threat."
  • Sam to Dean: “You always put me first. Your whole life.”

  • Jack has visions of Lucifer standing in for his subconscious.
  • Even Jack is not powerful enough to bring Mary back from the dead.
  • Mary is in heaven with John and at peace.
  • This means that John is in heaven.
  • Mary's death was instant and painless.
  • If John and Mary are sharing a heaven, earlier show canon would argue that John and Mary are soulmates.
  • Mary took on a mother role with Jack that we see in flashbacks.
  • Mary somewhat considers Jack Sam and Dean's son as she gives Sam advice about parenting in a flashback.
  • Mary didn't trust Cas much when she was first brought back to life. She didn't trust him enough to let her heal him after a hunt.
  • Cas admires Mary's abilities as a hunter.
  • Mary knows how important Cas is in the lives of Sam and Dean; telling Cas they were "never alone" even when she was dead.

  • Supernatural often kills off a major recurring character 3 episodes before the season finale and this year it was Mary.
  • Mary's initials have joined Sam and Dean's carved into the bunker's table
  • This is the first time the gates of heaven have opened since they were closed by Naomi in the episode Funeralia.
  • On Jack's phone, Cas' name is spelled "Cass".

  • In a flashback, Mary tells Cas that Sam and Dean were "never alone" even when she and John were dead; acknowledging the importance of Cas in their lives. This also references the "never homeless" sentiment from season 5's finale Swan Song. I could also mean that as long as they have each other, they are never alone.
  • Sam and Dean gave Mary's "empty shell" that Jack brought back a hunter's funeral.
