yeah that scene revolted me too.i know its not what they meant but what i had was dean friendship with cas and Benny make Sam feel like a failure of a brother like what?,dean having friends outside you is a good thing,it just screamed codependency
And normally Sam DOES think that’s a good thing. This, the possessive moment in the church scene, is not how he really thinks. It was a red flag heralding the toxic brodependency that was going to color season 9.
Maybe. If the writers have a clue what they’re doing. I used to think they did.
