The only thing I'm having trouble understanding is when Sam tells dean “Maybe we can bring him back, like you said.” but he says this before dean tells him about the prayer and I've rewatched this ep a billion times and dean never says anything about bringing Cas back- at least not in front of Sam. I was wondering what you thought about this? Maybe the answer is glaringly obvious and I'm probably overlooking it. I'm just kinda confused :p
They cut the scene where they move Cas to the house, so maybe this was something that got lost in the process? Although Sam has to ask if Cas is really dead once they’re on the road, so I would have to guess that it mirrored the end of the episode and Sam dealt with Kelly? Since she was also already covered when Sam took Jack to see her, so I suppose they would have had to have that conversation around the edges of that?
Unless someone can think of something we’ve both missed. I did just literally rewatch that one line as research… :P
