Supernatural Season 14, Episode 18 gave us a heartbreaking episode. Here are my favorite lines from the episode.

Supernatural Season 14, Episode 18 brought us answers to the questions from the previous one. We learned exactly what happened to Mary and saw Jack’s next steps.

While it was certainly a heartbreaking episode, it was also well-written. There were some excellent moments, focusing on consistency in the characters. Here are my five favorite lines from “Absence.”

Buddy, you killed Mary Winchester. You cannot come back from that, and you know it. All right?

One thing I adored about this line is that it came from Jack’s head. While it may have been Mark Pellegrino taking on his Lucifer form than his Nick one, it brought out everything Jack was thinking. This told me that there was still something of a soul left.

I don’t think Jack was thinking “WWWD,” but actually felt the loss. He felt scared, and guilty, and upset because of the things he’d done. This line delivered us a little bit of hope for Jack’s character.

What he did wasn’t bad. It was the absence of good. And I saw that in him. But we were a family, and I didn’t want to lose that, so I thought I could… fix it on my own.

Castiel explains why he kept the secret from the Winchesters. This wasn’t because he was scared of what the Winchesters would do to Jack if they knew the truth, but he felt like it was his responsibility. This certainly makes Castiel a Winchester, and that’s the reason this line stands out for me.

He made it clear that he had the weight of the world on his shoulders. It’s not the first time he’s felt this way. Nor is he the only one to ever feel this way. We’ve watched Sam and Dean take on this responsibility before. If anyone can understand, it’s them, and this does lead to Sam connecting with Cass’ way of thinking.

It’s nice knowing I’m not the only one… with parental guilt. How much did the two of you go through when I wasn’t there for you? And even when Amara brought me back, and I got a second chance, things got complicated. I got complicated.

There’s no way of cutting this line down. It was such a beautiful one that told us everything about Mary’s character. She felt so guilty for everything that she’d done and now she could see it in Sam’s eyes, sense the same guilt that he was feeling.

I just love that we got a sense of how sorry she was for everything she did. I still don’t blame her for her actions but it was clear that she regretted her actions. This was the point that she was trying to make amends and she stepped up for Sam. At least, the two had this moment.

We knew Jack was dangerous. We always knew. Long before he killed Michael. You more than anyone. I mean, from the very beginning, you knew. But, you know, we fell for him ’cause he had a good heart and a good soul.

Sam is the one that knocks some sense into Dean. After hearing why Castiel lied, Sam decided to share his own thoughts with Dean. He brought forward the truth and the fear that they’d always had for Jack in the very beginning.

After all, we’d watched as Dean initially feared Jack, thinking that they would need to kill him. However, in the end, both Sam and Dean realized Jack had a good soul. They chose to ignore all the warning signs even before killing Michael and there’s no way that they can only blame Castiel for everything.

I saw your mother’s Heaven, and she is happy. She’s with John, and there’s no sorrow. There’s no guilt. Just joy.

In the end, Castiel confirmed that Mary Winchester was definitely dead. He confirmed that she was gone and there was no coming back from this. However, it wasn’t in a bad way. He was able to offer some good news.

Mary is in Heaven and it looks like she’s in a special heaven with John. Everyone should be happy about that, but there’s certainly a bittersweet element to the news. But I do love that Castiel was able to see Mary was happy, even if I don’t trust Duma.
