Last season on Supernatural Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) met a spunky young lass named Krissy Chambers (guest star Madison McLaughlin) who was learning to hunt, much like they did as kids, because her dad, Lee, was a hunter. At the end of “Adventures in Babysitting” we learned Krissy and her dad were retiring. It seems something went terribly awry, because Krissy, and some other young hunters, found themselves alone.
Instead of getting put into the traditional system, a man named Victor (guest star Adrian Hough) takes in the orphans, gives them a home and continues their education in hunting. Not a traditional life, to be sure, but he reasons, in the clip below, that as good as the hunters are now as demons get more aggressive it can’t hurt to start the training earlier, and make it a more well-rounded approach.
According to the preview information, Sam will think the idea isn’t all that bad, but Dean will become very suspicious of Victor. After all, he and Krissy developed quite a friendship when they last met, and he had high hopes for her future. They even did a fist bump for goodness sakes!
Personally, I don’t think Victor gives Sam and Dean nearly enough credit for their intelligence and skill and calling our dearly departed Bobby a borderline alcoholic is pushing the envelope, but credit where it’s due – I did giggle when he said “and somebody obviously dropped Garth on his head when he was a baby…”
What are your thoughts? Given the world they live in should the citizens on Supernatural start up a line of a Hogwarts type of Hunting Schools to get kids prepared to take on demons and monsters with as little fanfare and mess as possible? Now that I think of it, it could make for a fun spinoff series should Supernatural ever (curse my name right now!) want to hang up it’s hat.
