Catch or ketch? Season 12

So the BMOL has a hierarchy much like Heaven and Hell. Disobedience is met with consequences as Mick tells us and the Winchesters. Interesting. Now who is this Mr. Ketch? At first I thought he said Catch but on re-watch it sounds like Ketch. Knowing the writers do their research, I did a Sammy and did some research as well. Mr. Ketch was the name or nickname of a famous executioner in the court of King Charles of England back in the 1600’s. Ketch later became a name synonymous with Death or Satan. Since Mick has already called Mr. Ketch in on Toni’s deeds and the Winchester assignment, obviously both are going against the Winchesters despite the rhetoric offered by Mick to our boys. Neither Winchester is buying his offer. Neither should the viewer. Now, save this bit of history for episodes to follow although if “pattern fits”, we should have a series of one offs where the family dynamic is explored before getting back to the BMOL arc. I “sammied” the episode. Good talk fandom. Store this one away.

  1. I always have the captions on while I watch shows because i don’t always catch what the actors say. Its especially good for spelling names, if the actors are whispering, mumbling, or talking too fast.
    What came up on my screen was the name Ketch, when Mick said it.


      1. John Ketch (died November 1686), generally known as Jack Ketch,[1] was an infamous English executioner employed by King Charles II.[2] He became famous through the way he performed his duties during the tumults of the 1680s, when he was often mentioned in broadsheet accounts that circulated throughout the Kingdom of England.

        Because of his botched executions, the name “Jack Ketch” is used as a proverbial name for death, Satan, and executioner.[2][4][5]

        – From the Wikipedia post

        Also read the Fiction section of the article outlining the many times that this name has appeared in other people’s stories. I don’t think its an accident on the part of the writers that the British MoL assassin is named after a famous English executioner.
