Notable Plot Moments:
Adam had called John because his mother was missing.
Sam and Dean tell him to call the cops but leave before they get there. Adam shows up at their motel room and wants to know who they are. He knows they aren’t mechanics because the cops didn’t know where to look for his mom, and Dean did. Sam tells him the truth.
Dean goes off on his own to investigate. While he is gone, Adam’s mom returns, and Sam pulls a gun on her, telling Adam that it isn’t his mother. Adam looks confused as the camera cuts back to Dean looking through the demon’s lair, where he finds the body of Adam’s mother. Then Adam points the gun at Sam and tells Sam, regarding his mother not being human, “I know.” The camera cuts to Dean finding Adam’s body as well.
Sam and Dean give Adam a hunters death, as he really was their brother. The ghouls couldn’t fake the photographs or John’s journal entries.
As Dean listens to Adam talk about John, he feels bad. When Adam says that John dropped everything when he heard he had a son, Dean clearly feels it. When Dean loses his patience, he tells Adam that they are John Winchester’s sons, and Adam is surprised to learn he has brothers. Dean is about to storm out of the restaurant when Adam says he can prove it. He takes them back to his house where he shows them a picture of john and him at a baseball game. Dean says, “He took you to a baseball game?” is a way that made it clear John never took them to any baseball games.
After telling Adam the truth, Dean is the one arguing to keep Adam out of it because that was obviously John’s wishes. Sam disagrees and thinks that they know what Adam feels like, losing his mother.
Sam tells Adam that “hunting is life” and “you can’t have connections.” Dean loses it, because John gave Sam that same speech, and Sam resented him for it, and now he’s quoting him? Dean is just over it. Dean seems to have had time to accept Adam and to feel that he has a choice for a different life, while Sam already has him condemned to their lifestyle.
