Sometimes the door closes on a relationship, not because we failed but because something bigger than us says this no longer fits our life. So, lock the door, shed a tear, turn around and look for the new door that’s opened. It’s a sign that you’re no longer that person you were, it’s time to change into who you are. It’s going to be okay.
9x01 ”I Think I’m Going To Like It Here” “Cas, are you there? Sammy’s hurt. He’s hurt, uh – he’s hurt pretty bad.
And, um… I know you think that I’m pissed at you, okay? But I don’t
care that the angels fell. So whatever you did or didn’t do, it doesn’t
matter, okay? We’ll work it out. Please, man, I need you here.”
This may be an utterly unpopular opinion, but I will say it anyway. And it has nothing to do with shipping for me, but only something to do with emotional support. Of course in this moment the show needed to find a way to save Sam as otherwise it would have meant the end of the show as people had come to know it over the course of 9 years and Dean needed to make a decision that would leave him vulnerable to Crowley’s manipulation and getting him into a mindset to take on the mark. Keeping that out of the equation though, I think Dean - and I have been thinking this right from the moment I saw this scene play out for the first time on screen - may very well never have made this choice had Castiel shown up. Now, of course people will say “But he prayed to Cas so he could save Sam”. And while I don’t deny that Dean surely would have asked Cas to try all he could, at the same time Dean knew fully well what Cas had told him not too long ago: That Sam is damaged in ways that not even Cas could heal. So in my opinion, while I absolutely believe that Dean would have begged Cas desperately to help him save Sam, I think that the outcome if Cas had shown up and told Dean, he couldn’t would have been different. Because you see, I think Dean also prayed for emotional support here. He didn’t just pray to Cas to save Sam, he prayed to Cas, because he needed someone himself to be there for him and shoulder his pain. And I know it’s a wildly unpopular opinion, but I do truly think that if Cas could have been there, there may have been a whole lot of fighting and a deeply distraught Dean at the end of his rope, but I think he may have been able to let Sam go, because he wouldn’t have felt completely and utterly alone.
Girl: OK bitch, square up.
Me: oh sis, but the brain cells tho…you know how many brain cells you lose just from shaking your head too fast? No ma'am. How about a competitive game of chess or a game of rock, paper, scissors full of gusto??
What she means: We didn’t get a single Reyes brothers reunion and nobody on the show seems to care! Sure you were going to give Gabe Robbie’s car, but what about his well-being?! Is he okay? Is he eating? Is he even old enough to take care of himself? You literally left him with no family or anyone!
