Video of the day
Ignoring everything that has been happening lately, NOONE can deny that the look on Sam’s face when he realises the crazy dude is going to cut Dean’s throat is sheer terror.
Just listen to these words again and again and again. Watch Sam’s expression closely. Whatever everyone thinks, Sam STILL cares. It’s stupid to actually think that he would be ok with Dean dying. He worries about him and he loves him. He’s just too hurt to fully show it. He keeps his distance.
And look how Dean barely flinches, doesn’t try to fight it at all….
People don’t realize that it’s SPECIFIC!!! Sam will forever save dean and do whatever it takes to save dean as long as Dean wants to be saved. It’s when he DOESN’T that Sam feels he would no longer do “anything” to save his brother.
Reblogging for the last comment. I don’t understand why people are still having the same argument. I don’t have any doubts in my mind that Sam cares about Dean. BUT he would never save him AGAINST HIS WILL. He respects Dean too much to violate his right to decide. That’s the lesson he’s trying to teach Dean. He’s pissed (understandably) and he knows that if he forgives Dean easily, things are going to continue the same as they have for many years. He wants Dean to understand that he doesn’t want a parent anymore. He wants a brother and Dean doesn’t behave like a brother. He’s way too obssessed with Sam (thank you John Winchester for that!). You can see Sam’s desire to have his brother when they talked about the time Sam dressed like Batman. But the moment Dean mentioned he drove Sam to be taken care of his broken arm, Sam’s face expression changed. I believe it was because again Sam was reminded that Dean was taking care of him since they were very little and Sam is now tired of that because HE WANTS A BROTHER NOT A PARENT. Dean needs to realize that he can have a life of his own that doesn’t revolve around Sam. He needs to let go and understand that it’s not his job to be Sam’s parent anymore. When Dean finally realizes that he can be Sam’s brother without smothering him, things will get better for both of them (that’s why Dean’s witnessed the words and actions of two protective mothers this season -Timmy’s mom on 9x07 and Kevin’s mom on 9x14). Remember Dean’s words to Timmy on 9x07?
"She came to you when you cried out for her. Now you have to tell her to stop and go away! (…) She can’t move on, she’s going crazy. Okay? You got to let her go. You’ll be okay. (…) Sometimes you got to do what’s best for you, even if it’s gonna hurt the ones you love."
That’s what Sam is doing. Dean came to him every time he cried out for help, but now it’s time for him to tell him to stop because Dean can’t move on (he cannot even live in a world without Sam). Sam is letting go, doing what’s best for him, even if it hurts Dean. Dean NEEDS to do the same. He needs to let go and become a brother instead of this obssessed mother-figure he’s been so far. The same way Timmy’s mother changed from being a ghost to having her normal face before moving on, we will see somehow Dean having his normal face, being the real Dean Winchester that can let Sam live his own life. I’m looking forward to that moment. In the meantime, I’ll continue to enjoy Season Divine.
