The thing is…Dean still had hope in the beginning of the episode. He was devastated; incredibly, terribly devastated, but there was a small flicker of hope burning inside him.
So Dean prayed to God. He prayed that God would bring him back. Would bring everyone back. Even Crowley.
“We’ve lost everything. So you bring him back. … You bring them all back.”
But God didn’t answer.
“[Jack] can do anything.”
And there was that hope again.
“Oh, sweet. Almost anything. Cas, he’s dead. All the way dead. Because of you.”
And then it was ripped away from him, so quickly, for a second, wrenching time.
Sam tried to console him, telling him maybe they could figure out a way, but Dean was done hoping, because he’d already tried. He’d really lost Cas this time, and there were wings burned into the sand to prove it. By the end of the episode, Dean had completely given up, and not just on Cas. On everything.
“Mom’s gone,” he said initially. But after dressing Cas’s body, after preparing a hunter’s funeral for Kelly and Cas, he’s realized his angel isn’t coming back from this, and he has no more hope to give. And thus Mary is dead.
Because Cas represents hope to Dean; Cas represents everything.

IMAGINE. FOR A SECOND. IF THE “SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG” GAME NEVER HAPPENED.
IMAGINE NO CAMARADERIE BETWEEN US FANS OVER THE HILARIOUSLY BAD THINGS WE JOKE ABOUT IN A TENDER WAY.
OR MAKING STUPID JOKES OVER AND OVER AND ITS NEVER LESS FUNNY.
IMAGINE NO MEMORABLE DISASTERS LIKE
“Where’s that DAMN fourth chaos emerald?!”
“DAMN, We’ve been detected!”
“WE’VE GOT TO FIND THE COMPUTER ROOM.”
“DAMN. NOT HERE”
“DEATH TO ALL WHO OPPOSE ME!!”
A video game starring a four foot cartoon hedgehog carrying a 10ft rifle.
“YOU’LL REGRET EVER CREATING ME. YOU’RE GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL!”
THE PRESIDENT IN THE MIDST OF AN ALIEN INVASION DESTROYING HIS CITY LOOKS LONGINGLY TO A PHOTO OF TWO CARTOON HEDGEHOGS ON HIS DESK.
“OW the EDGE”
That last one ain’t even in the game but it’s just as beautiful and wouldn’t be here without it.
I know that and 06 had a hand in tarnishing Sonic’s reputation but the fan’s amazing humor makes me SO happy that it happened anyway!
EVEN WHEN YOU FAIL SONIC TEAM, YOU STILL MAKE ME SMILE. GOOD GAME.
