Co-leader of a resistance movement
|“||I want a family. I want to be safe. You know the worst thing I can think of, the very worst thing? Is for my children to be raised into this like I was.||”|
— Mary to Dean
Mary Sandra Winchester (née Campbell) (born December 5, 1954 – 2019) was a hunter, the daughter of Samuel and Deanna Campbell, the wife of John Winchester, and the mother of Dean and Sam Winchester. After retiring from hunting to be with her family, Mary was killed by the DemonAzazel exactly six months after Sam was born, which spurred John into becoming a hunter to kill Azazel in revenge and raising their sons as hunters as well. 33 years later, after Dean reunited God and The Darkness, she was resurrected by the latter as a gift for Dean. The Darkness later revealed that she brought Mary back to help Dean see that the real Mary is better than the dream of his mother that Dean had held onto for so long in an attempt to get Dean to accept his life and let go of his anger.
After her resurrection, Mary struggled with her new surroundings that have changed in the last three decades which caused her to briefly leave her sons. She became aligned with the British Men of Letters who helped her sharpen her skill as a hunter and better adapt to the new world though alienated her from her sons. Mary soon formed a relationship with Arthur Ketch but she became aware of that he and his superiors had ulterior motives for other hunters. She tried to protest but was subdued and put under their control, making her a pawn to their whims. With help from her son Dean, she broke free and aided her fellow hunters in taking down the British Men of Letters in America.
Mary then returned to her children, though she was soon separated from them again after protecting them from Lucifer and was sent to an alternate reality with him. In the other world, Mary was imprisoned by the Archangel Michael who rules over that world and wanted to invade her world. Mary is liberated from Michael's clutches by Lucifer's son who was sent to that world while trying to find her.
Afterwards, Mary and Jack would go onto form a resistance against Michael. In the months that followed, the two saw many victories before they were reunited with Sam, Dean, and Castiel who journeyed to the world to save them. Mary did not want to abandon the fight but was persuaded after they promised to evacuate the civilians as well.
Following her return to the Main Universe, Mary continued hunting though she began living in Donna Hanscum's cabin with Bobby instead of the bunker. After a soulless Jack kills Nick for trying to resurrectLucifer, he accidentally kills Mary in a brief fit of rage. Mary is reunited with her husband in Heaven and is now at peace in a shared Heaven with John.
Mary was born December 5, 1954 to a hunter couple Samuel and Deanna, who had not planned for her birth but regarded her as a "blessing" regardless. Mary had a brother, but he is never named. His last known location was Greenville, Illinois, but his status is unknown. The family lived in Lawrence, Kansas.
Mary hated hunting; she sought to have a normal life so that she could be safe and raise a family. This caused tension between her and her father. When she fell in love with John Winchester, Samuel did not approve of their relationship because he believed John to be a naive civilian. Though Mary loved John, she did not tell him about the hunting life.
Unbeknownst to her, Mary met the future version of her firstborn son, Dean, in "In The Beginning". She noticed him following her and John on a date, and violently confronted him before he revealed that he was also a hunter. She then took him back to her house, where he had dinner with her family despite Samuel's distrust of him.
A reluctant Mary worked a case with her father and Dean. They learned that Charlie Whitshire had unwittingly made a deal with a demon in order to protect his father from abusing his mother. From Charlie's description, Dean realized that the demon in question was Azazel, who had killed Mary in the future. Dean made her promise not to leave her bed on November 2, 1983, the night she was supposed to die. However, when she learned that Azazel was targeting a friend of hers named Liddy Walsh, Mary and Samuel intervened, in the process inadvertently drawing Azazel's attention to Mary due to her skills and courage.
Mary was terrified by the demon's interest in her. She spent time with John to try to clear her head. While he was in the middle of proposing to her, her father Samuel, who was possessed by Azazel, interrupted. He killed John then revealed that he had also killed her parents, devastating Mary. He then pressured her into making a deal for John's resurrection and her having a normal life; in exchange, she granted permission for him to enter her house in ten years. Dean arrived too late to stop her, and was returned to his own time by the angelCastiel.
Mary later married John and retired from hunting. The couple lived together at 485 Robintree.
Mary became pregnant with Dean.
In "The Song Remains the Same", Mary's future sons arrived to prevent Anna Milton from killing John, thus preventing the birth of her youngest child, Sam, and the onset of the Apocalypse. Mary was vehemently against their presence because the last time she'd seen Dean, her parents were murdered. She also didn't want them getting her involved with hunting again.
Mary fended Anna off to protect John and distract Anna while Sam banished the angel with a sigil. During this fight, Mary exposed her hunting background to John, and was forced to reveal the truth about herself to him. John was upset that she hadn't told him earlier as well as being angry at her parents for endangering her life by raising her like that.
Mary led the rest of the Winchesters to a house her family had owned and kept stocked with weapons and measures against the for years. Sam taught her how to use holy oil to trap angels.
While preparing to fight Anna, Mary demanded an explanation as to why an angel wanted to kill her from Dean, who eventually revealed that the truth about himself and Sam to her. She was stricken with guilt and horror at the thought of raising them as hunters, but Dean revealed that she had been killed by Azazel and John trained them as hunters instead while seeking vengeance. Dean suggested that she try to flee with Sam before the demon came for them, but Sam himself stated that she should just leave John. While shocked by her sons' words, Mary remained steadfast that she could not leave John because she was pregnant with Dean.
Anna and fellow angel Uriel attacked after removing all the defenses the Winchesters had set up against them. Mary witnessed Sam's death at Anna's hands; however, when Anna turned to her, Michael possessed John, killed Anna, and sent Uriel back to Heaven. Michael also modified Mary's memories to remove her memory of meeting her sons as well as of the warning they gave her to ensure she would die as intended.
A family of her own
Mary gave birth to Dean on January 24, 1979.
A memory of Dean's from Dark Side of the Moon revealed that Mary and John's marriage was not as perfect as John later portrayed it as; at one point, they fought until John had to temporarily move out. She was upset by this, but a toddler Dean comforted her.
In 1980, Mary resumed hunting briefly to "tie up some loose ends." While in Emerson, Manitoba, Canada, Mary killed awerewolf she had history with and saved the life of a young boy named Asa Fox. As a result of the encounter with Mary, Asa was inspired to become a hunter himself.
Mary gave birth to Sam on May 2, 1983.
As seen in the teaser of "Pilot", Mary awoke on November 2, 1983, due to the sounds of Sam crying over the baby monitor. She entered his nursery to find Azazel leaning over the infant's crib. She mistook him for John and decided to let him soothe Sam so she could return to bed.
However, Mary noticed a light flickering in the hallway and a television still on downstairs. She discovered John asleep in the living room. Much to her horror, she realized that the person upstairs was an intruder and rushed back to Sam's nursery, interrupting Azazel as he fed her son his blood—this is what Mary had given him permission for in 1973 without realizing it.
Azazel used telekinesis to drag Mary up the wall and pin her to the ceiling, at which point he slit her stomach. She screamed briefly, alerting John, who ran into the nursery. She could not speak to warn him and stared helplessly at her husband and her youngest son before John noticed her blood dripping onto his hand while he was caressing Sam and looked up; Azazel then set her aflame, burning her alive.
In lieu of her body, Mary's uncle put up a headstone to commemorate her in Greenville, Illinois, where he presumably lived. Sam and Dean never met her uncle. They visited her headstone in "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things" and later in "Alpha and Omega."
After Mary's death, Azazel killed all of her remaining family, friends, and even acquaintances, such as her doctor, to hide his deal with her. Because her family and anyone associated with them died, Sam and Dean did not learn that their mother used to be a hunter until early in Season 4.
The memory of Mary and her death drove the remaining Winchester family to become hunters in order to track down and kill Azazel to avenge her. John continued to grieve for her even decades later, confessing in "Salvation" that he wanted her back. Dean's wish in "What Is And What Should Never Be" is for Mary to have never died, but he chooses to wake himself up from his dream when he realizes that a djinn has poisoned him in order to feed off of him until he dies. Dean avenged her at the end of the second season when he killed Azazel with the Colt. When undergoing demon blood detox in "When the Levee Breaks", a feverish Sam hallucinates her reassuring him that he is doing the right thing in drinking blood to kill Lilith.
Enemies of the Winchesters have been known to use the family's love and grief for Mary against them: besides the example of the djinn above, Zachariah used an illusion of Mary to make her sons suffer by manipulating their emotions in "Dark Side of the Moon", and in "Mommy Dearest" Eve assumed her shape to make a point about her love for her monstrous children.
For years after Mary's death, her ghost haunted the house she'd died in. Her death and Azazel's temporary presence drew a powerful, violent poltergeist to the house.
Mary's last chronological appearance as herself was in the Season 1 episode Home, in which Sam's premonition led her sons back to their childhood home to hunt the poltergeist terrorizing the family currently living in the home. When the poltergeist tried to kill Sam, her ghost manifested, first as a flaming humanoid figure that walked out of the closet of the room that used to be Sam's nursery. She apologized to him for allowing Azazel to feed him blood. She confronted the poltergeist, telling it to leave her house and let go of her son, before she sacrificed herself to banish the poltergeist from the house. What became of her soul afterward is unknown: the psychicMissouri Moseley believed that she ceased to exist and Ash later tells Sam and Dean that he had not found her in Heaven. However it has been revealed that destroyed ghosts do in fact still move on to their destined resting places and perhaps Mary and John simply do not want to be found.
In Alpha and Omega, Sam and Dean visit Mary's grave before Dean goes to sacrifice himself to destroy the Darkness. After Dean helps the Darkness reconcile with God, the Darkness tells him that he gave her what she truly wanted so she will do the same for him. Shortly afterwards, Dean finds a resurrected and confused Mary in a nearby park.
In Keep Calm and Carry On, Dean is shocked by Mary's resurrection. Mary, not remembering her death or anything that came after it, is confused by Dean's presence and claim that he is her son. Dean tells Mary that he's not four anymore since she has been dead. Mary suddenly remembers her death at the hands of Azazel and lets up Dean who tells her that she has been dead for 33 years. Dean convinces Mary of his identity by reciting her family history and her history with John. Convinced, Mary hugs Dean and they sit on a bench in the park and Dean fills her in on all that she's missed over the last 33 years. Mary is stunned by the news that she met Dean through time travel twice and was resurrected by God's sister and met Dean while she was a ghost which she is unable to remember either.
After catching Mary up, Dean takes her to the Men of Letters bunker to meet Sam. Mary is shocked to find out that the Men of Letters are real as she'd only known them as a hunter's myth. Noticing blood on the ground, Dean hands Mary a gun and tells her to stay behind as he searches the bunker. Instead, Mary explores and hides when she hears someone enter. Emerging from hiding, Mary threatens Castiel at gunpoint until Dean defuses the situation. Dean explains to a shocked Castiel who Mary is and to the shocked Mary that Castiel is in fact an angel. After Castiel explains what happened before Lady Toni Bevellbanished him, Dean searches through traffic cameras on the Winchester's laptop for the kidnapper's car. Mary is confused by the size of the computer before Dean locates the vehicle. Joining Dean and Castiel in the hunt for Sam, Mary goes with them to the bunker's garage where she recognizes the Impala as John's car and comments on how beautiful the car still is, treating the car in a similar manner to how Dean does.
Tracking the kidnapper's vehicle to the airport, the three question a man there about the kidnappers and Mary is surprised by Castiel acting violent when he's an angel. The man gives up the tail number of Toni's plane and Mary sits in a café and watches the changed world as Dean searches for information on the plane. When Castiel joins her, Mary tells him about how strange everything is to her, from the fact that she was resurrected at all to the world around her. Dean rejoins them and explains that the plane has a diplomatic registry, meaning that they can't access the flight plan. After Castiel spots a nearby veterinary clinic, the three realize Sam could've been treated there and kidnap the doctor for answers. After the man admits he treated Sam's leg wound for $100,000 but clearly holds something back, Mary orders Castiel to beat the answers out of him. The doctor finally tells them that he has Toni's phone number as she called to ask about the sedative he used on Sam and Mary watches with Castiel as Dean calls Toni.
Having failed to get anything from the phone call, the three make their way back to the bunker when the Impala is rammed by Ms. Watt in an SUV, knocking Mary unconscious. Castiel is able to determine that Mary is not seriously hurt before he and Dean are forced to fight Ms. Watt who has the upper hand due to a set of enchanted brass knuckles. As Ms. Watt prepares to kill Dean with his own gun, Mary regains consciousness and stabs Ms. Watt through the back with Castiel's dropped angel blade, killing her and saving Dean. As Dean and Castiel push Ms. Watt's SUV off the road, Mary sits inside the Impala door and stares at her hands before Dean tells her that they have a lead from Ms. Watt's cellphone. Mary tells him that she's not alright as she never wanted her children to become hunters, but Dean tells her that he and Sam have done a lot of good and the world is a better place with them in it as hunters. The three then set out for Aldrich, Missouri where Ms. Watt's cellphone points to Sam being.
In Mamma Mia, Mary arrives at the location Sam is being held, and finds both her sons being held captive by Lady Toni Bevell. Mary surprises Sam by her appearance before she gets into a fight with Toni. They are interrupted by the arrival of Toni's colleague, Mick Davies, who accuses Toni of misbehaving and apologizes to the gang for her behavior. Mick takes Toni away, allowing the trio, plus Castiel, to return to the Bunker.

See's Candies is an American manufacturer and distributor of candy, particularly chocolates. It was founded by Charles See, his wife Florence, and his mother Mary in Los Angeles, California in 1921. The company is now headquartered in South San Francisco, California. See's kitchens are located at its headquarters and maintained at its original factory in Los Angeles, where there are also retail shops. It also has an office in Carson, California. The company has been owned by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Corporation since 1972.
Location and market area
The See's Candy company primarily vends its products in its own stores, and those of fellow Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary Nebraska Furniture Mart. See's candies are also available at its stores in a number of airports in the United States. See's Candies operates over 200 stores in the following U.S. states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin. There are also stores outside the U.S. in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and South Korea, taking advantage of the proximity of the plant to San Francisco International Airport. Seasonally – primarily during the year-end holiday shopping season – See's also offers its product in select markets in kiosks at malls and other shopping centers. See's also has an online store.
See's markets its product outside these areas via mail order catalog, in order to control the age of its product. The candies are also available through online orders, and links to the candy company's site can be found on Walmart.com and similar internet stores. Through an arrangement with Costco, coupons for boxes of candies may be purchased at the warehouse outlets and redeemed at See's stores or by mail. Coupons are also sold in fundraising efforts.
On March 28, 2020, See's Candies suspended operations citing the current COVID-19 pandemic and stating it has closed all of its stores until further notice. This is the first time the company has shut down operations since WWII, when it became difficult to acquire sugar and other ingredients due to the war effort. In May 2020, See's Candies reopened both their Los Angeles and San Francisco candy kitchens with safety precautions in-place. On-line sales resumed and contact-free pick-up became available in certain locations.
In 2020, See's Candies opened a store in UAE Abu Dubai in The Dubai Mall.
According to the corporate website, Charles Alexander See II (1882–1949) arrived in the United States from Canada in 1921 with his wife Florence MacLean Wilson See (1885–1956), and his widowed mother Mary Wiseman See (1854–1939). Mary See had developed the recipes that became the foundation of the See's candy business while helping run her husband's hotel on Tremont Island in Ontario.
The family opened the first See's Candies shop and kitchen at 135 North Western Avenue in Los Angeles in November 1921. They had twelve shops by the mid-1920s and operated thirty shops during the Great Depression. See's first white and black "all porcelain" store was opened in Bakersfield, California on May 1, 1941.
In 1936 See's opened a shop in San Francisco. It moved operations to make creams and truffles (60% of product sales) to South San Francisco in order to take advantage of the location's cold weather.
In 1972, the See family sold the company, which generated $4 million in pre-tax profit that year, to Berkshire Hathaway for $25 million. On January 3, 1972, Blue Chip obtained a controlling interest in See's Candy Shops. Blue Chip later acquired 100% of See's for an overall price of $25 million. Wesco Financial Corporation was an 80.1% owned subsidiary of Blue Chip Stamps until its complete merger into Berkshire Hathaway in 2011. Warren Buffett has called See's "the prototype of a dream business." (2007) At a 1996 luncheon in San Francisco, Charlie Munger revealed that See's was the first high quality business that Berkshire ever bought. Previous to that point, Berkshire had focused on undervalued assets that could be bought cheaply. The See's acquisition influenced their commitment to buying businesses with a strong reputation and brand recognition.
The 'couverture' chocolate used by See's is provided by the nearby Guittard Chocolate Company, and nuts come from Mariani Nut Company of Winters, California, just about an hour and 20 minutes away. On June 20, 2012, See's Candies was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records for the world's largest lollipop, a giant chocolate lollipop weighing 7,003 pounds (3,177 kg) and measuring 4 ft 8.75 in (1.44 m) long, 3 ft 6 in (1.07 m) wide, and 5 feet 11 in (1.8 m) high, equivalent to 145,000 regular-size lollipops. The previous largest lollipop record stood at a hefty 6,514 pounds (2,955 kg).
In popular culture
In 1952, Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance spent a half day at the See's Candies store on La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, learning to dip chocolates and work the production line, in preparation for the "Job Switching" episode of I Love Lucy. The episode, which featured Lucy and Ethel getting jobs in a chocolate factory, became one of the most popular in the show's history.
Singer Cher was working at See's in 1962, when she met Sonny Bono; she quit her job to become his housekeeper.
In a 1987 Kidsongs video, "What I Want to Be", The Kidsongs Kids visit the See's Candies factory during "The Candy Man" song sequence.
In 1994, a driver delivering a bulk order of chocolate fell asleep while his truck was hooked up to one of the vats and pumping; the adjacent El Camino Real and Spruce Avenue were flooded with chocolate. Workers had to shovel it away from the storm drains once the fog had cooled it.
Every year the South San Francisco facility mounts oversized holiday decorations atop its plant for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day, Mothers' Day, and Independence Day. For the 2018 season, See's discontinued the tradition of putting Santa's sleigh and reindeer on the roof, opting instead for smaller "chocolate" wreaths.
On Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher's 2020 Netflix show, Never Have I Ever, the main character, Devi Vishwakumar's mom keeps a cabinet of See's Candies as housewarming/hostess gifts.
