Greatest love triangle of all time.
Sec. 1 of ?
I am totally fascinated with the Sam-Dean-Cas dynamic. I love it. I can’t get enough of it. I, personally, view it very much as a love triangle, with Sam-Dean being platonic brotherly love, and Dean-Cas being romantic. It’s painful, it’s dramatic, and I LOVE IT. I know I’m in the minority (although @elizabethrobertajones and I had a lovely mutual venting session about some of these issues). I seriously see these three as one of the greatest fictional love triangles ever.
weeks I’ve been trying to find a way to explain the triangle, and I’m slowly realizing that I’m not going to be able to do it all in one sitting.
I’ll just try to get it out one semi-cohesive section at a time.
Today, I’m focusing on the way romance has been portrayed in the show
thus far, along with the codependency in season 8. (Most of this section will focus on Sam and Dean.)
entire Carver era finally shoved a spotlight on the codependency
it for what it was. Instead
of just poking fun at it like the show has done before, the audience
was shown just how
isolating and destructive codependent relationships can be. Season
8 showed us the isolation brought
on by the relationship itself, rather than outside forces.
Seasons 9 and 10 showed us the destruction, and season 11 showed us
the consequences and, finally,
has to change.
(This is why I kinda
the Carver era, even with all of it’s plot holes and missteps.)
