Before he could finish Newt had pounced, grabbing the Rat Man by the lapels of his white suit coat and slamming him against the nearest door. “Call them subjects again and I’ll break your bloody neck!”
I was just rewatching the episode, and it really hit home:
Lucifer, extremely powerful, proud archangel, could not get past Delphine’s excellent warding. Sam found a spell that would do just that in order to save Dean.
Sam offered the power of his own soul–and his very life–to make sure the spell worked. He would have willingly sacrificed himself to bring Dean back.
And when he realized Lucifer, his worst nightmare, was on earth and embodied, and when Lucifer threatened Dean, Sam had the presence of mind and quick thinking to banish him with a blood sigil.
And then, to top it all off, despite the emotional upheaval and pain he must have been experiencing, Sam Winchester sat down and offered Dean the opportunity to talk about his painful experiences due to the events of the episode.
Sam’s consistent selflessness and heroism slay me. That is all.
