Teach Your Children Well
The second episode of The Winchesters opens with a teenager and his partner walking through an open forest, where the male Barry is hit by something which appears to be his father. Then Dean recounts the fact that parents bear the obligation to teach their children numerous things, such as the methods of killing monsters.
Dean says it’s crucial for children to be free of parental control before things become too unpleasant. While at the same time, Mary, John, and their companions are following Samuel’s path in a bunker full of dead Zombies.
Ada says she destroyed the bunker, and that there isn’t any information regarding the Akrida any longer. Mary believes that her father was in the bunker, too, and there is information regarding the Akrida. She believes that Samuel was alive when he left when she discovers shell casings that have his initials inscribed on the.
Lata asks herself what the reason is Samuel wasn’t contacting Mary after she states she believes that casings are Samuel’s way to contact her. At this point, the zombies appear and begin fighting the group. Lata is trying to unlock the rune box but is unable to do it.
They kill all the creatures one after another until one is able to sneak up on John and attempts to devour John. Mary takes out the creature and kills it and saves John. After their fight with zombies comes close to an end Mary declares that Samuel always hides his tracks.
She explains that there has to be a reason why the casings weren’t removed from the bunker. Mary comes across a newspaper report on a recent monster event close to the casing.
She suggests that they investigate it. Carlos describes how their primary aim is to find their Men of Letters and not embark on a search in the midst of all the other things. Similar to Samuel, Mary does not take him seriously and decides Ada should stay behind and focus on fixing the ranebox.
She announces the fact that John, Lata, and Carlos will go for a hunt. Carlos asks Mary out but continues to follow her around on the hunt. At the speed, John and Mary get to talk and she tries to assure him that he is safe.
The next day, John is back at his home with the other children and his mother is furious at him for not coming to her just like his father. John gets into a heated argument with his mother once more and goes out without even a word to her.
Mary is the one who teaches John how to follow the primary rule to follow when hunting and then hands him fake identifications. Carlos, as well as Lata, are inside the hotel room when Carlos expresses his displeasure over Mary doing her bossy thing and following the same manner as her father.
Then, John and Mary return after Mary tells them that they have an issue to solve at the local police station. She recounts the story of how Barry disappeared after the commune he was in with an unknown girl who was named Maya.
When they hear about the commune, Carlos begins to dance and Mary and Lata are with him while John observes. They dress to impress and join the gathering. The four are divided into two groups to talk about Barry.
Carlos and Lata discuss this with Maya and she refers to the commune’s leader and the head of the commune, Clyde. John along with Mary is talking with Clyde who believes that Barry was a fugitive in California. Mary is concerned about Clyde and observes that his pendant is missing.
She directs the group to investigate who the monster might be using the information they have. While they are doing this, Ada arrives at the Winchester garage to meet his mother.
She attempts to explain where the man is coming from, but Millie Winchester is annoyed even more. Ada makes reference to Henry Winchester which gets Millie’s focus. Millie gives Millie the number to call if she wants to connect with John.
Ada informs Millie learn that the flower Henry had planted outside of their home was Jasmine to safeguard them. This leaves Millie in a state of confusion. Four rookie hunters are certain that the creature they are searching for is a form shifter and begin their hunt for it.
Clyde is walking through the forest with an attractive woman when he sees an individual and is caught in the trees, just as Barry did. He finds the woman he was speaking about within the animal, who creates fear in him and causes him to disappear. Mary informs John of the story of how her family would hunt for shapeshifters, based on the creature’s mistakes as they strolled through the forest.
John speaks about his anger at his mother’s voice when Carlos calls to check on who Clyde has been seen with. Carlos states that Clyde was also missing. Lily declares she believes that the “shifter” is known as the “mimic” that is only killed with copper weapons.
Carlos says it is actually the sole item he doesn’t carry weapons made from since it’s a low-cost metal. John proposes the idea of helping the two men when Lata adds that they might encounter another species.
Mary does not want to listen to her suggestions and demands John make use of the copper pipes that were left in the hotel to construct the weapons. Lata is still picking the pink flower for her to study in the future. Ada is in the clubhouse making tea with the jasmine that she picked out from her garden at the Winchester house.
Lata calls Ada inquiring about the purple flower. Ada says that more details about it are inside one of the publications she carried. Following the conversation, Ada sips the tea and falls into a stupor as she starts writing on the piece of paper.
John is back in the hotel and is removing the copper pipes, while Mary Carlos is alone at the very first moment. Mary is curious about what he did wrong to her. Carlos admits her story of how she behaved similarly to Samuel and didn’t pay attention to the other members of her group.
He requests Mary to pause and reconsider her decisions regarding leadership. Lata is walking by and provides proof that what they had been tracking down was not a replica. She says that the creature’s name is La Tundra that was once a woman.
If the children did not obey her, she cut her up to serve the flowers in her garden which was the same flower they found. Lata states it is believed that this creature feeds upon kids who aren’t obeying by changing into a familiar form to draw them in.
Mary realizes she has to know that John was also talking about being a rebel against his mother and the family rushes to assist John. While John is preparing to collect the weapons, there’s an unwelcome knock at the door.
John is surprised to find Millie waiting at her door, and John tries to assure her that everything will be fine. Millie attempts to provoke John to explain why Henry didn’t want him, and then accuses him of being the reason they parted ways.
Millie is caught up in a misunderstanding about something John has never discussed with her, and she realizes the creature was his mother. He is attempting to assault her using the copper pipe but La Tundra puts up a fight, shocking John.
At the point that Mary, Lata, and Carlos arrived in the room, John is gone, and there’s a bouquet of flowers that were left behind. Mary begins to regret her choice and apologizes for not listening. Carlos laughs at Mary’s apology and they go out to search for John.
Mary allows Lata to assume the reins of the hunt because it was she who discovered the creature. John, Barry, and Clyde are trapped in the roots. The trio consisting of John, Lata, and Carlos attempt to figure out ways to get rid of the beast.
Lata says they might make use of her magical powers to kill her. Carlos is convinced there’s a way to locate the creature. While he’s at it, La Tundra is back to beating Barry like his dad after John is able to escape.
He is able to free Clyde and is about to assist Barry as La Tundra transforms into Millie and threatens to make him pay. Carlos is the one who leads Mary along with Lata to the trail of flowers in purple while John combats La Tundra. The creature takes on John when the three show up.
Carlos and Lata Carlos and Lata Barry as Mary attempts to take on La Tundra. Mary advises John to hurt this creature, breaking it’s leg. the latter is able to accomplish it, killing her instantly. The next day, John and Mary drop Barry off at the home of his father. The duo is pleased with their union.
John meets with Millie in order to reconcile with her and introduce Millie to Mary. Millie has repaired Mary’s vehicle for her, and John speaks to her while Mary leaves. John apologizes to Mille for bringing out his father’s anger on her.
Millie says to John that she loves him the way his father did along with their entire family. Carlos and Mary talk, reconciling their differences while Lata is reading the book. John arrives to join them as Ada comes in and shares she found a lead to the box.
She leads them to her private chamber in which she began writing in a haze of unintentional scribbles and then her notes. Ada states the fact that she managed to access the remnants left by the demon that possessed her with the potion.
She’s certain that her notes will assist them to find the demons who were involved in the hunt, and could provide answers to every question. A woman dressed in a black cloak travels to the forest in the form of purple flowers. She finds red beads from La Tunda’s cave. She is followed by a group of wolf-like creatures that follow her.
The Episode Review
It appears that we’re returning to the old days of monster-hunting, and it seems that the absence of John around would not cause much harm. I’d like to watch the show that follows Mary’s adventures prior to her meeting John, as well as the person who appears, who could be her ex-lover.
We are aware that John was a hunter only following the time Azazel murdered her, The premise in The Winchesters seems to be the biggest plot hole. If we think of this show as a new show on television, and that isn’t connected to the Supernatural The episode was very fascinating.
There’s something off with how the producers are preparing the story. We don’t have many details about the lore, unlike the way Sam would spend hours doing the research before going out to search for the elusive. We also had nothing about how Jasmine was a plant Henry planted was meant to protect Mary.
The conclusion of the episode is very intriguing to me and I’d like to know who it is that has gathered the monster’s essence from the forest following the hunt. It promises the possibility of a larger, more complex monster in the next episodes.
