So I’ve always wondered something
When Castiel pulled Dean out of Hell he left the hand print on him
But my question is: Why leave the hand print?
I mean we obviously see that he healed most of Dean’s other wounds and scars from his time in Hell, so why leave the hand print when he could have easily healed it?
Did he leave it there to possibly remind him of something or stake his claim on Dean? Like how farmers brand cows
Well I think that he possibly made some sort of connection to Dean (#profoundbond) and showed it by leaving a hand print (to remind Dean what he did for him). That may also be why whenever Cas wants to calm Dean down he grabs the same shoulder as though it has some sort of huge meaning in their relationship.
And then this happened:
LUCIFER WAS GRABBING THE WRONG SHOULDER AND DEAN KNEW IT
