Annie is a hunter, in her mid-thirties. She works on her own, and has no family. She is a friend to Bobby, Dean and Sam, and in fact has slept with each of them at various times. It is unknown when these encounters occurred, although Sam tells Dean that it was during the period that he was soulless and they ended up on a case together. She has in her possession some of Bobby’s old books.
7.19 Of Grave Importance
Annie is investigating a series of disappearances of teenagers, that center around the Van Ness House in Bodega Bay, California. While investigating the house, a ghost called Victoria, leaves a message via EVP on her phone. Later Annie calls Sam and Dean suggesting they meet so she can give them Bobby’s books. She returns to the house, and is killed by Whitman Van Ness, although Dexter O’Connell tries to warn her off.
Sam and Dean travel to the house in search of her, and Bobby, who is also a ghost, informs Annie that she is dead. The house is full of ghosts and one, Haskel Crane gives them some hints on how to move objects.
Two more teenagers enter the house and are killed, and when Dexter tries to intervene Whitman attacks him and absorbs his soul. Annie asks Victoria to explain what is happening, and she explains that Whitman kills people who enters the house, and each soul he traps in the house makes him stronger.
When Bobby returns to the house, he and Annie find the bodies of all that have died in the house including Annie herself. Annie tells Bobby that she wants a Hunter’s funeral pyre, that her life was a lonely one, and that she doesn’t want to linger as a ghost.
Sam and Dean burn Whitman’s bones and vanquish him, just as he attacks Bobby. When Sam and Dean return, they can see and speak to Bobby, who tells them what has happened to Annie. They burn her corpse and she requested.
Now a number of characters have only played small parts on this show, and this character really stood out for me. I think she could have been a cracking character if she had lived longer. You never know since its Supernatural anything is possible. I liked her image, and confidence in getting a job done, and was a bold, sassy hunter. I also enjoyed and laughed to myself when I found out she had slept with all three men, WOW go girl!! I often wondered who was her favorite.
I enjoyed her performance a lot, and she in a way reminded me of Ellen, and recall this was mentioned on the forum. Two hot headed women, with a goal in mind and would achieve it, no matter what got in the way. I also thought she blended in well with Bobby and they were naturals together, they were on the same wavelength.
So folks, what did you think of spunky Annie Hawkins. Was her character short lived, and not fleshed out enough. Did we really get to know this little gem of a lady. May be you didn’t overly care for her, or she was a character that slipped past your radar. Either way would like to know what you might of thought about her. As she didn’t want to stay as a ghost and resemble the ones that she was viewing herself. Did she deserve to die, I don’t feel she did. By the way I loved how she called Bobby ‘Robert’ and not Bobby! I’ve got to give it to these two actors it was a pretty moving scene.
