‘Beyond a shallow, sickly Gulf, our voyage grew increasingly forbidding and much harder to explain. How could a sea exist, here, at the bottom of the world?’ –In the Words of Molten Milithe, the Wild Witch
lance and keith get put into a mission together and keith sorta confesses that he values lance on the team more than himself, and lance can’t comprehend that bc he believes keith is super important too, so they are both rlly confused??
so, this episode textually established that: - cas is sam’s family, too - sam is able to move on from cas’ death, while dean can’t. so we have to guess that dean’s relationship with cas is different. - dean knows about jack’s vision. so, cas told him before dying…? - dean blames jack specifically for CAS’ death - dean “hates” jack because he got CAS killed - whenever he looks at jack, it reminds him of everything he’s lost, but from what he says after, all we really gather is that jack reminds him of CAS - the problem is CAS. it’s about CAS. the thing, everything, is… CAS!
i can’t believe im always hesitant to say that dean is suffering mostly because of cas’ death, and bobo just sits down and writes THAT. at this point, im just waiting for sam to snap like “DEAN, I GET IT, YOU LOVED HIM” and, that’s it.
