Are the boys becoming sloppy, was my first thought? Have they let too many cases go without finishing the job. Have they been lazy in leaving trails behind them? The question remains why did the boys NOT finish her OFF? The British Men of Letters, are obviously following the boys and are on their trail, but when we look at the nitty-gritty did Magda really have to die, when it was a cry for help? Are the Men of Letters so cut throat that they have NO compassion of these life circumstances? Magda was after all contacting those people as a way out of her situation, she was trying to escape her imprisonment and using her power so she thought, effectively. She I doubt never wanted to really harm them even though she took two lives so cold and cruelly.
Regardless of her self-defence, the BMOL didn’t see it this way. They saw her as a monster that had to be put down because she’d killed two innocent people. Innocent people who had done nothing wrong to warrant their life being cruelly taken from them. An eye for an eye is the way see it.
But again in her defence you might cry, she was being cruelly treated by her mother, whom at first you thought was the one being cruel keeping her daughter down in the cellar, forcing her to whip out any evil that might lurk within her very soul.
So when do we begin to doubt Sam and Dean’s judegement? Or do you never? Do you think they are always right? And the BMOL’s are out of order? Do you feel they had the right to end Magda? The BMOL’s didn’t witness what Sam clearly did. Sam as we know always stands up for the victim when he has a hunch he’s often right. He saw first hand what pain and suffering Magda endured at the hands of her wicked mother. They both clearly had a connection with one another through their abilities and use of special power. Sam tried his damnedest to make the family see sense what they were doing, was so very, very wrong. Which lead to their father’s death. But whom pulled that trigger, the mother or daughter? Had the mother poisoned the father to take them all away to heaven. Which in turn triggered Magda’s power to really kick in. Trying to put a stop to her mother ending her brother’s life. She ended her mothers instead. So why were the BMOL’s only seeing this case so black and white? Not even a blurred vision that made them doubt the situation Ketch was finding himself in?
I get that Magda killed two people, and that Sam was pleased in the end Magda had a second chance at life to live it freely away from her captors for the reminder of her natural life. So he thought. This story reminded me of Kate in Bitten, when she had killed her friend the werewolf, and they let her go. Also Amy Pond who Sam let live and who Dean ended, because he saw it similarly to the Men of Letters. Also Max the Physic kid who ended his horrible days turning the gun on himself. So in some ways Magda did turn the gun on herself, even though someone else did pull that trigger.
So do you think Magda deserved to live, considering the cards she was dealt?
Or do you feel bad for the people’s lives she took away who no longer have a life?
