Can we just take a second to think about how terrifying it must have been for both Sam and Dean to be in this situation with the hellhounds? Dean doesn’t bat an eye at half the monsters they face on this show but here he’s clearly petrified, probably reliving those last excruciating moments before he went to Hell. Then Sam sees him lying under a hellhound again and has to be remembering what it was like to watch his brother get torn apart when there was nothing he could do to stop it. But this time he gets to save him.
