AHHHH he is a CHILD I don’t care how old he looks or how old Alex Calvert is. Jack is just barely three years old where we are in season 15. I’m pretty sure he was still technically qualified as a newborn when he self harmed for the first time. Just because he’s ultra powerful does NOT mean he doesn’t still need guidance and love and support. What baby can be expected to be perfect and perfectly in control all the time? We can’t expect that of adults and we don’t hold adult characters to that kind of standard, so why do people immediately get on Jack’s case for mistakes? All he wants to do is help people. Half the adults on the planet aren’t that selfless. And if Jack sometimes lashes out or makes a mistake, we need to afford him the benefit of the doubt. He’s trying so hard under pressure that would make people ten times his age break.
Anyway if someone ever says Jack should know better or doesn’t deserve something because he messed up or is ungrateful, kindly remind them that this is an actual baby. Other children his age are barely in preschool and learning to hold pencils, not moving them with their minds. Other children his age are watching cartoons and refusing vegetables, not getting orders from Death herself. Other children his age are barely speaking their first language, not reading dangerous Enochian spells immediately after being resurrected.
So yes, Jack has flaws. He’s THREE. Just like any child he craves validation from his parents. Just like any child he sometimes needs to be selfish. And just like all children, he shouldn’t be expected to be grateful for parental love. And Jack is, by the way, despite the fact that he shouldn’t have to be.
Jack’s powers don’t mean he isn’t still a baby. He’s still a toddler. Though he has teenage moments, he’s nowhere near adulthood. Please please PLEASE remember that, because all he should be worrying about right now is whether or not dads will let him have nougat before bed. Not how he’s gonna kill himself to take out God.
