Do you think there was anything more than friendship between Dean and Benny? It seemed implied in their language, such as "It's /so/ good to hear your voice" (8x19). They were acting like exs who still care about each other. They spoke to each other in a way that male friends typically don't (gushing emotions). Bi Dean seems nearly cannon to me.
