Every night is the last night. Every time is the last time. There’s nothing destined about this. If circumstances aren’t tearing them apart, then it’s they themselves, who are running or distracted and yet… life keeps throwing them back together. They’ve been taught to look down upon what each other are. They aren’t each other’s constants; they are each other’s exeptions. They never expected to have the place they do in each other’s lives. It’s a choice.
Gosh, this is another example where Destiel would be so easy. Can you imagine, almost nothing else about the episode would have to change but Dean could just lean down a bit further and kiss Cas on the top of his head.
That’s it. It would be simple things like this that could take this to the next level without the raunchy sex scene that they seem to think people want. Honestly, at this point, I doubt it’s going to happen, but when I see scenes like this it just reminds me of how easy it would be to make a few tiny changes that would add an additional level of complexity, heart, and something new and different to this 12 year old story.
