How much did you think Sam and Dean really told John?

Obviously they didn't tell him how he really died, because he thinks he died 'taking out Yellow Eyes'
17(15.0%)
I think they probably left out the demon blood
15(13.3%)
I think they probably left out the Mark of Cain
18(15.9%)
I think they probably told him Lucifer got out of the pit but did not explain how that happened
11(9.7%)
Obviously they didn't tell him Mary had been brought back, so I think they didn't tell him about the Darkness and how Dean was 'attached' to her
17(15.0%)
I think they probably didn't tell him about Demon!Dean
17(15.0%)
I think they probably didn't tell him about being buddies with the King of Hell
15(13.3%)
I think they told him everything

Don't know, don't care, we got any grenades?

NOT A SPOILER, but I can guarantee that Jared won't break your heart next week because Supernatural doesn't have a new episode until March and the CW is running a Valentine's Day special next week, so we won't even get a Jared breaking our heart rerun.
I don't know how accurate this is, but Sam Smith tweeted this about the Winchester Surprise:

Winchester Surprise
3 lbs pork
3 lbs beef
3 lbs american cheese
Fritos to garnish

Plus, if you’re Dean (or Jensen Ackles), a gallon of hot sauce.

Okay, there’s got to be something else in there. That’s basically a deconstructed cheeseburger.
I think pasta, probably? Or maybe it *is* just a blob of meat and cheese, which sounds gross, but kind of explains why Mary sounded horrified and bewildered at once that she actually cooked that for her family and that they ate it.

Edited at 2019-02-12 10:13 am (UTC)
Wow, that doesn't sound appetizing at all! But hey, Mary did seem horrified that she served it to her family. But maybe it's one of those things that sounds gross, but tastes delicious!?
Great Chuck! That would make enough for a month! And sounds kind of good, except I'd use the fritos inbetsween layers of meat and cheese so in turns into a gooey Frito-Pie concoction. Top with Fritos and shredded cheeses and cook until bubbly. YUMMY!
I was unspoiled, apart from knowing that JDM was coming back, and I still wish I didn't even know that (Who would I have thought was fighting the boys in the red alarm?! Would I have guessed John? Would I have been as shocked as Dean and Sam? Why not put his name on the opening credits when you've told everyone he's in it?)

And Mary and John definitely got it on while the boys went into town. I mean John did shed a layer...
Another great poll!

I wrote a recipe for John Winchester's Kitchen Sink Stew for the Pissed Off Sandwich cookbook. I did it as a recipe John had written out himself.

BTW, I have an extra copy...anybody interested? I only ask postage.
"Things that broke my freaking heart" - I'd like to add the way Dean flinched when Sam squashed the pearl.

It was such a tragic moment, and he made it so real by his awesome acting.
