uv bed

I just (painfully) rewatched 10x21. So, some quick thoughts that don’t involve the episode’s obvious topic of discussion…

Rowena mentions duality, binary systems when talking of magic and curses. Witch and Nerd (but Cas gives another option…angel). Two stars orbiting one another is a binary system. Two lights, basically. Souls are light, as are wavelengths of celestial intent with grace. There was talk of how in order to create a cure (reverse a curse), Agnes had to create another curse, supposedly to the opposite effect. The episode also gave Eldon two hearts. Binary. One person’s life source in another. “Two of a kind”, a theme that’s been in season 10 since 10x01.

By reductive reasoning, Dean’s going to have to share his body (his “light”) with another “star”, to create a binary system to balance the MoC out. I know there was title card speculative over this (Cas’ grace curing Dean), and the talk of an inhospitable environment for the Mark in 9x15, but here is the first textual threads that we’re probably going to get something in this vein. Plus it explains why Cas got his grace back and it would force the narrative to answer all his unanswered questions this year.

In all honesty tho, this seems too tidy for a finale. An eventual solution maybe, but maybe not what we get in the finale. Just wanted to offer another discussion beat before I go to bed…
