*Ellen Harvelle* is a fictional character on The CW Television Network's
/Supernatural/ portrayed by Samantha Ferris. Introduced in the second
season in order to explore a mother-daughter relationship in the hunting
world, the "gun-toting, beer-slinging" Ellen brought a "maternal energy" to
the male-dominated series. The mother of Jo Harvelle and the proprietor of
Harvelle's Roadhouse—a bar frequented by hunters of supernatural
creatures—Ellen provides advice and assistance to Sam and Dean
Winchester throughout the second season. Although the character's
appearances in the third season were dropped due to the 2007–2008
Writers Guild of America strike and failed negotiations, she returns in the
fifth and sixth seasons. Critical reception to the character has been
positive, with many critics happy to see her return.
