Supernatural - The Missing (Winchester) Brother

I am thoroughly enjoying the arc of Supernatural this season, especially with the turn of events that recently happened. We know who has taken responsibility for bringing Grandpa out of heaven. We know who lays claim to both pulling Sammy from the cage and knowing where his MIA soul is. Answers, we have answers! But the one area we have yet to even have a mention of is what happened to Adam.

Like any true Winchester, Adam's life was not a bed of roses. He had an absent father who dropped in once in a while and a mother who worked long hours just to support them. John's dreams of keeping Adam out of the hunting life and safe were all for nil since the ghouls came after him anyway. Adam and his mom were killed long before Dean and Sam even knew he existed. But the family reunion wasn't going to be over before it began, since the angels sought fit to raise him from the dead to be their perfect Plan B in the whole vessel battle. And so, he was pulled down into the pit along with Lucifer!Sam. While Sam's body is back on Earth, his soul is either still trapped in the cage or waiting in Purgatory until the whole Crowley plan goes as requested. And Adam is...where? That's the big question. Perhaps there are only two options left at this point.

Adam's Soul Is Still In The Cage: This is the saddest option since it means Adam's possibly been tortured for as long as Sam has. Adam is a broken soul, sacrificed for a battle that wasn't even his to begin with. While, if Sammy's soul is right there in the cage with him, it means he's had his big brother along for the ride, it's not necessarily a ride we'd wish anyone to be on.

Michael Put His Soul Back In Heaven Before Taking Over His Body: Not that Michael exuded any kind of compassion in his interactions, but we can hold out hope that he didn't necessarily need Adam sticking around to utilize his body after permission was given. So, it's likely he could have sent Adam's soul straight back to heaven while he took the vessel for a spin.

The bottom line is that I just want some kind of mention of the Winchesters' missing brother. Dean has said time and again how much family means to them. Adam seemed to be just as important to them as any other person that shared their blood, and even a few that became honorary Winchesters along the way. If that still holds true, then why has there been no mention of their little brother so far? Two people jumped into that pit and only one came back. I'm sure the audience would appreciate some acknowledgment of that fact.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
