A Carver Era Rewatch Hiatus Meta-Series
One of the things I really adored about Carver Era and especially the MoC arc is how situations and confrontations were re-visited and re-explored. One of the most intriguing parallels imo were played between Dean and Abaddon. This here is just one example. Whereas in S9 Dean as a human fought against Abaddon as a knight, one season later he’d take her place in the confrontation with Cole. The alignments of Dean and Abaddon have been strong all throughout S9, but this moment here combined with this one surely are among my personal favourites.
