Why didn't Sam let Castiel know about Dean losing his memories in 12x11? Plus, do you think there comes a point in which Cas decides that for Dean to be safe, he has to forget about Castiel? Angels can alter/erase memories, right?
12x11: Literally the only reason Cas isn’t in that episode (or Sam doesn’t call Cas, because Cas would be there in a SHOT) is because without his inhibitions Dean Sublimation Winchester would be ALL OVER CASTIEL. He already fanboys all over him just hearing about him and is well up for a M/M/F threesome, and even with his inhibitions he licks his lips, stares longingly and treats him like his husband. LBR he’d be so cute and sweet and flirty.
Gosh I would have been so here for that. Sigh. The writers have backed themselves into the proverbial romantic corner and it’s hilarious how they just cannot have episodes like this with Cas in them or Dean and Cas in the same room unchaperoned together for more than 5 seconds without it turning into a romantic scene a la 12x19.
I am living.
When would it be a good thing for Dean to forget about Cas? I mean it would be an amazing trope (and hella romantic, the ultimate “you’re better off without me” love trope, which they have already used in… s6, purgatory, 9x06, 11x10). Perhaps, it would be interesting to see if they did want to make it more textual it is something I could see happening in the next season(s), but there are other options too so it’s just one option of many.
I mean they have used like 70% of romantic tropes, why not go all out and use all 100%? ;)
