this happened awhile back, when they first started hanging out.
dean loves benny a lot, maybe is attracted to him if you get him drunk enough to admit it, but it mostly comes down to just mutually caring about each other a lot.
when dean truly cares about someone, you’d be hard pressed to ever get him to admit it without his inhibitions being down in some way. random flings are easier than actually developing a relationship because there’s so much room for getting hurt in that scenario.
benny doesn’t go out with anyone, and never talks about his love life.
when samandriel first started working for ellen, he was given a man named alfie’s old uniform so everyone started calling him alfie because samandriel is hard to pronounce but mostly because it makes him mad.
they didn’t have name tags wide enough to fit his name so he taped two together.
