can i just ask why you say that samifer is torture and sam getting treated like crap?? because lucifer never hurt sam and always asked for consent and tried to explain his point of view. also hallucifer was just a hallucination and sam's mind beating himself up. so idk??
Fact is, if Lucifer had ‘never hurt’ Sam or tortured him, a hallucination of him would have NEVER scared Sam. It’d be no different than hallucinating about the dog he used to play with as a kid.
But no, seeing Lucifer terrified Sam, it was a very powerful emotional response to the point where Sam would flinch and cower everytime Lucifer came close to him as if expecting him to flay him open again or rape him, or do you know nothing about psychology and psychological responses?
It’s obvious that he did rape him, and Lucifer reminded Sam about it in the show even, telling him he made him his bitch in ‘every sense of the word’. Hell, we have confirmation as of this past SFCon from Mark Sheppard that yes, Lucifer raped Sam in hell.
At the end of the day, there is NO question.
Lucifer psychologically and physically tortured Sam, raped Sam, abused Sam, tore Sam apart, filleted his soul, flayed him open, made him feel like he was less than shit, wrecked that boy to the core to the point where Sam flinched practically every time Hallucifer was near. That level of fear from someone as strong as Sam, who as a hunter has seen the worst kind of bad in the world and never fearfully fled, who’s faced everything head on, except for a hallucination? THAT level of fear speaks volumes about what Sam endured at Lucifer’s hands in hell.
In Hallucifer’s presence he shied away and looked more scared than we’ve ever seen Sam, let Hallucifer talk down to him and make him fearfully question his reality and if he was back in that hell hole, classic Stockholm Syndrome case, and yet people try to ROMANTICIZE THAT?? They try and act like the Devil is a saint who ‘promised Sam he’d never lie/hurt’ him, so of course the DEVIL never lies?
It blows my mind. Hell no. Fuck that noise.
People can ship whatever they want, and people can like Lucifer all they want (Hell, even I like him as a character, he’s awesome and evil!) but don’t act like he’s a saint who wouldn’t lay a finger on Sam. Don’t take obvious canon and try and warp it into the DEVIL being some kind of misunderstood sweetheart who throws flower petals wherever he goes.
Sam ruined his plans for world domination and he was pissed, and the show makes it VERY clear that he took all of that rage out on Sam. HellFire!Broken!Sam who literally made Sam go insane when they merged and Sam remembered all the torture and rape he went through? Is the result of what happened to him at Lucifer’s hands.
Period. End of Story.
