Garth is a hunter who was first introduced in Season 7 when he was sent by Bobby to accompany Dean. Garth has been turned into a werewolf, but since he has a good control over his impulses, the Winchesters leave him to be. He retires from the hunting and rejoins college to study dentistry. Did you know that Garth’s character was supposed to be written off, but the showrunner Sera Gamble decided to keep Garth alive, and removed his death from the draft. Thanks to her, we got to experience the magnificence of Garth who became everyone’s favorite hunter. Garth named his twin sons as Sam and Castiel.
While the Winchesters are the good guys so one won’t expect them to mingle with the bad guys. But in Supernatural, it’s interesting to see the boys forming meaningful relationships and associations with even the bad guys. These bad guys through their interactions and experiences with the boys had a change of heart. Characters such as Meg, Crowley, Rowena, and Ketch started off as the villains who had troubled the boys on more than one occasion. But in the end, when the time came, they sacrificed themselves for the greater good. Meg stayed back and fought Crowley, allowing the Winchesters to escape. Ketch died at the hands of a demon, but didn’t betray the boys by giving their location to the demon Ardat, he even broke his contract with the demon.
