Supernatural Star Previews Back to the Future II


No, Julie McNiven is not offering Supernatural viewers insight into an old Michael J. Fox movie.


Instead, the headline above refers to this season's 13th episode of the CW hit, titled "Back to the Future II." It will air in early 2010 and McNiven - who plays recurring angel Anna on the series - previewed the major installment in an interview with AOL this week.


During the episode, she said...


* Anna returns, blaming Sam for starting the Apocalypse;

* She travels back in time, Termninator-style, to kill John and Mary Winchester and prevent Sam's birth from ever occurring;

* Sam and Dean respond by also heading into the past, alongside Castiel.


"Everything Anna does is motivated by wanting to do the right thing, wanting to do what she feels is going to keep this apocalypse from happening," McNiven said. "I see Anna as always doing what she thinks is right and she's very strong about that and doesn't want to hear anything otherwise."


McNiven added that fans "wont be let down" by the episode.


But they will have to wait awhile for it: Supernatural is on an extended hiatus and won't return until January 21 with a new installment.

"She travels back in time, Termninator-style, to kill John and Mary Winchester and prevent Sam's birth from ever occurring"

I hope that makes more sense in the episode itself, because put like that? None whatsoever.
Firstly, the show has already told us that all this Winchester stuff is predetermined and can't be changed through timetravel. Castiel as much as said so at the end of "In the Beginning".Secondly, wouldn't it make a hell of a lot more sense to go back in time about five minutes and just tell Sam Lilith *is* the final seal?Or, if we're going with this idiotic plan, why would she need to kill *both* Mary and John?
Sense. Not making any.

You cross a good point there Xanxei...but...
Firstly, Despite your claim that the show has dwelled on the fact that the Winchester story cannot be changed there have been several counter actions against this. The first was in episode 16 of season four "On the head of a pin" which Castiel spoke to Uriel about the "Leaky pipe that could undo the work of angels, even though we ourselves are supposed to be the agents of fate". This itself didn't prove anything, as it was another angel who caused the leak. However, once again in the season finally of season 4 "Lucifer Rising", when Dean and Castiel showed up at chuck's house, he seemed suprised and even claimed "your not supposed to be here, i didnt write this", even though its been said by Cas that "What the prophet has wrote, so shall come to pass", however the counter claim that the premonition had just not come to him yet is null in void by the alternate ending shown on the dvd of season 4 where it shows chuck seeing the events of the season final and Zachariah making sure he does not tell the Winchesters.And the newest and most convincing instance that proves angels can change fate is in season 5 episode 4 "The End" where dean travels to the future and on his return makes decisions that change the events that he witnessed 5 years in the future. "Rejoining Sam", and "Finding The Colt".
Secondly, even if Anna went back 5 minutes before Sam killed Lilith, all the other seals had fallen, and it was not entirely up to Sam to kill Lilith, she just had to die at midnight, which she would likely have found another way if Sam hadn't shown up. Also, Zachariah claimed that rising Lucifer was there plan all along, so it is likely that the angels would have prevented another angel from intruding from another time to stop Sam.
And your final statement about why Anna would kill both John and Mary...I think you might be right on that one...

"it was not entirely up to Sam to kill Lilith, she just had to die at midnight, which she would likely have found another way if Sam hadn't shown up."
So Ruby spent two years manipulating Sam to get him to do this one thing, because Lilith could have just eaten a gun? Remember Ruby telling him: "It had to be you, Sam. It always had to be you."
I don't think any of the examples you bring up with respect to changing fate are particularly convincing, but I'm willing to let the futility of Anna's attempt itself go, and focus instead on the nature of it. Of the million different ways she could try to change past events, she chooses to kill two good people?
Honestly. It just doesn't make sense.
