and hear me out
What if we get this subtle lead up to Destiel. We get the shoulder touches, the dad moments, the seamless way that they fit into each other’s lives, gradually making it more and more obvious, but never confirming.
And then in the final episode (because let’s face it, Supernatural isn’t going to end happy and they’ll probably wait this long, let’s be real) Sam, Dean, and Cas all get killed and Dean and Cas smile when they realize they’ve woken up in the same heaven. (They visit Sam’s heaven a lot.)
Because last season was showing us Cas’s ‘heaven’ (where Dean was originally supposed to be) and this season they’ve taken the time to remind us that soulmates always end up in the same heaven.
