you said this song is perfect for destiel and it is

Will you still love me tomorrow?

Robbie Thompson, you wonderful writer and perfect human being! Your episode was glorious. What an interesting song Robbie chose to open the episode: Will you still love me tomorrow by The Shirelles. How many “sun” references can we get? This is killing me!

Here are the lyrics of the song. If you pay attention, you will see why Dean is said to be pining:

Tonight you’re mine completely 
You give, you love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment’s pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I’m the only one
BUT WILL MY HEART BE BROKEN
WHEN THE NIGHT MEETS THE MORNING SUN?
I’d like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
(INSTRUMENTAL)
So tell me now, and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

I’m dead. I’m so fucking dead. Seven months ago, I wrote this:  

For season 11, I can picture the Dean/Cas C plot in an unrequited love sort of way just because that’s what both of them think at the moment. Don’t forget Naomi was the first to suggest that in 8x19: “You’re hoping Castiel will return to you. I admire your loyalty. I only wish he felt the same way.”

The song Robbie chose is basically about someone who’s in love but doesn’t know if the other person loves them back. “I’d like to know that your love is love I can be sure of. So tell me now and I won’t ask again: Will you still love me tomorrow?”

But you know what the worst part is? “Will my heart be broken when the night meets the morning sun?” Oh my god!! The night is dark, right? The night is the darkness. And the morning sun? That one is easy. It’s Cas. So… will Dean’s heart be broken when Amara meets Cas? There we have the two things messing Dean up right now. The attraction, connection, or pull that Amara causes in him, which by the way, scares him; and the love that he’s been feeling since two seasons before he met Amara. Love… and love, remember? Dean said that in 9x02. He’s felt two different kinds of love for a long time. The thing is that we finally had someone who told Dean to his face that he saw through him and realized his heart was taken. Sam asked Dean in 11x04 if he ever thought about something with someone who understood the life, not marriage but something, and now Mildred told him he was pining for somebody else. Pining means yearning deeply, suffering with longing. And guess who can canonically pick up on a longing? ;)

I’m just saying that after watching 11x11, I couldn’t be happier. 

PS: Yes, I love writing meta about the music choices the show makes. Yes, I do think the songs are carefully chosen. Just FYI.
