The Winchesters Reveals How Defying Fate Originated

The Winchesters Reveals How Defying Fate Originated

Sam and Dean Winchester countlessly evaded fate throughout Supernatural, and The Winchesters episode 9 shows how that tradition started.

The Winchesters episode 9 has revealed how the family started defying fate. In Supernatural season 5, Sam and Dean Winchester were expected to be the vessels for Michael and Lucifer to play out the Apocalypse. Gabriel even played tricks on them to get them to “play their roles” in Supernatural season 5 episode 8, “Changing Channels.” But, despite what their fate was supposed to be, the Winchesters fought back on their own terms. When Sam finally let Lucifer in, it was with a plan that only barely worked.


In The Winchesters episode 9, “Cast Your Fate to the Wind,” John Winchester (Drake Rodger) saw his future in an amulet. The lead vampire would bite him on a red carpet, similar to when a vampire bit Dean in Supernatural. The group tried to do everything they could to avoid this from happening, but John ended up in a red carpet room with his mother, Millie Winchester (Bianca Kajlich), and very few options.

Millie Winchester Tells John: Fate Is What You Make It

Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) opened episode 9 with a narration saying his dad used to say, “fate is what you make it.” It turns out it wasn’t John Winchester who initially said this. It was his mother, Millie Winchester. John and Millie, we’re having a heart-to-heart, and she said everyone told her she couldn’t be a mechanic, but she is one. This inspired John to take fate into his own hands and save his friends and mom from the vampires. This started a tradition that Sam and Dean did a lot in Supernatural.

John Winchester Manipulates His Fate To Beat It

When John knew the vampire would bite him, he decided to let it happen, but he had a plan. He had his mom electrocute him, so he could use dead man’s blood to hurt the vampire. Then, John told his mom to run and save herself. He trusted Mary Campbell (Meg Donnelly) and his friends would bring him back. The plan worked. The vampire was stunned and ran away. Mary and Millie were also able to get John’s heart beating again. So the amulet did reveal the future, the vampire did bite him, and his heart stopped, but because of quick thinking, he could save his friends, mom, and himself.

John’s quick thinking is also a trait that his boys inherited. There have been many cases where they have used out-of-the-box thinking to save themselves. For example, in Supernatural season 4, episode 7, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester,” Sam covered their faces with blood from the ground because the Supernatural lore said people used masks to hide from Samhain. While Dean didn’t like that Sam “gave it a shot,” that quick thinking has saved them repeatedly. It looks like John will be doing the same on The Winchesters.
