The Rapture: "Don't. I don't care."
sophie_deangirl
 "What do you want me to say? That I'm disappointed? Yeh, I am, but mostly I'm just tired, man. I'm done.  I am just done."


This episode had both an "Ahhh!!!  and "Ewww!!!" factor.  Bet you can't guess what the ewww factor was. The sense of revelation on both counts was effective and though Sam's descent into his addiction came as no surprise to us fans, for me, I was glad that Dean finally saw what Sam was doing even though I know that deep down Dean already suspected.  He's a lot smarter than Sam gives him credit for.

As always, the most heartbreaking part of this episode was the ending.  The words that he had said to Sam...they were things I would have never, ever have expected to hear from Dean. Not that Dean should continue to be blind to what's happening, "Dean-ial" (my latest silly self-created catch phrase) has never worked for Dean, but I've always had this certainty, unrealistic yes, I admit it, that Dean would never tell Sam that he didn't care what he did anymore, yes, Dean would be sad, disappointed and even resigned, but still given all that he would never stop caring about Sam, that he would never stop yelling and battling with Sam, no matter how futile. To hear him say that he doesn't care about Sam's excuses because they wouldn't mean anything to him, that they would be just words that Sam would be saying to justify what he's doing and in Dean's eyes, they were both way past that point was heart wrenching, to have Dean admit in his own way that Sam was never going to see that what he was doing was wrong. Period, end of story.  Dean came to acceptance and decided it wasn't worth fighting over...maybe even worth fighting for and that made me sad. Now, this doesn't mean that Dean has stopped caring about Sam himself.  Far from it, but he no longer feels that he can stop Sam. Dean doesn't surrender, but you can't help feeling that he has here, at least at trying to reach Sam.  It wasn't enough to tell Sam that what he was doing was wrong and have Sam take that at face value because Sam has stopped listening, doesn't want to hear that from Dean. Dean no longer holds any sway with Sam.  And though one could argue that Sam's a grown up, can make his own decisions and doesn't need Dean's permission or should care about his opinion, I'm sorry, color me naive, but that's what family and friends are for, to help us see that we're going the wrong way and to try to prevent it if they can.  Sure, the ultimate decision is ours, is Sam's, but Sam had better be ready to face the consequences and likely, at first, all alone.

The trailer for the last remaining episodes, which I was happily surprised and delighted to see tacked onto the iTunes episode download, was beyond heartbreaking.  I don't know what words to use to describe it besides that.  History repeats itself when Dean says, "If you walk out that door, don't you ever come back!" SO eerily like John's last words to Sam when he had left for Stanford.  This, however, is decidedly worse.

Okay, I'm getting ahead of myself as always.

This episode was primarily about Castiel and his host, Jimmy Novak and it was wonderful in its own right, not to mention it was nice to learn about how Castiel chose his host and who Jimmy was.  Very few times do we get to delve into the life of the person that demons possess and for the most part, knowing who that person was doesn't drive the story so it's not really important, but in the case of Castiel, it was nice to know that Jimmy did allow himself to be possessed as Castiel had told Dean and it was nice to learn that he had a wife and child.

Misha Collins WAS AMAZING in this episode.  I usually hoard my accolades for Jensen and his portrayals of Dean, unrepentant DeanGIrl, that I am after all, but I gotta say, Misha hit all of the fabulous sentimental notes pitch perfectly. It was phenomenal to watch him go from the from stoic, serious, Castiel to the very human, very expressive Jimmy.  You can see the delineation unfold in Misha's performances.  It was a tour de force for him and in my view, solidified his place on the show as not only a character who becomes an intricate thread in the mythology, but maybe as good as an ally beyond just being an agent from God.  

Okay, admission here, there is SERIOUS dread in my heart that in these last couple of episodes, we'll lose our beloved Bobby.  Believe me, I hope I'm TERRIBLY wrong, but hints of it have been running rampant for weeks about an insurmountable loss for our brothers and no other human has played such a pivotal role, other than their parents, of course, as Bobby.  He has been there for the boys at every chaotic, catastrophic turn in their lives and to not have him there anymore would be well, dare I say it, heartbreaking.  I mean, I love the fact that Jim Beaver has been in every season finale since the show started, playing Bobby as this solid father figure that the boys have come to rely on.  I can't imagine a Season 5 finale without Bobby Singer in it, kicking demon butt...Again, I hope and wish that I'll be wrong in this, but if I'm right, which I don't want to me, I can see Castiel filling in the  role, don't get me wrong, much as I like Castiel, he could never be the kind of ally that Bobby is and I can't really see him as even a brother figure to the boys, but I can see him as a warrior figure who will willingly fight for Dean and Sam.  Though I have to admit that after Castiel's return into Jimmy's dying body, it looks like the sympathetic Castiel is gone and has been replaced by a more militant version. Time will tell. We'll know the answer soon. The spoiler clips have been amazing and I won't reveal out of respect for those who don't want to be spoiled, but I can guarantee that no matter what side you're one, Sam's or Dean's, you won't be disappointed in how things play out.

Okay, back to it.  Dean and Sam find Cas...er...Jimmy, seemingly a casualty of what Sam called "angel on angel violence".  I TOTALLY LOVED watching Misha stuff his face full of food instead of  Dean for a change and Dean telling him to slow down because he's giving HIM angina...you gotta love the irony in that. Jensen must have been relieved to have been spared another eating scene for once. HILARIOUS!!!  Okay, my heart just ACHES for the moments, few as they are, of Sam just being Sam, of being the Sam of season's past, asking Jimmy want happened.  Jared has been just PHENOMENAL this whole season showing the delicate graying of Sam's transformation and then just splitting the two Sams apart by showing him as the sweet Sam we all know and love to the defiant, angry, revenge-driven, potentially demon metamorphosis version of Sam.  Jared just nails each side convincingly.  He makes Sam sympathetic, if not always easily forgivable (in the end, Sam can and likely will be forgiven -- he was given a fate that he didn't ask for after all) for his actions. You know that Sam is conflicted.  You can feel that in how Jared tells Prophet Chuck about how he wishes he could stop drinking demon blood. Still, despite  his best intentions, his choices, governed by his own free will, by the way, are solely his own and likely misguided by Ruby and his need for revenge. Let's not forget, folks that Sam decided to start down this path.  There wasn't a gun to his head forcing him to make these decisions. Maybe he'll be proven right, heck, maybe he already is on some level, that to defeat Lillith, he has to become as strong a demon as she is and more elementally, it can't be denied that with his demon powers he's been able to assist in ways that just being human couldn't have achieved.  That said, though, if Sam is trying to justify his choices, what he views as his sacrifice of his own humanity for the greater good because he feels that becoming a demon or possessed with demon powers is the only way they can win the war is worth it, I can't buy that. And that's not just because I'm a DeanGirl.  Again, Jared has played Sam beautifully in his conflict and it's in these moments like when he's talking to Jimmy, you long for it not to be too late, but knowing that it is or very close to it.  Jared has taken full advantage of Sam's transformation and is succeeding marvelously.  I don't think Jared would take offense at me saying, he's played Sam so well, I just want to  slap him silly to bring him back to his senses.

Side note:  I loved that Jimmy described being possessed by an angel as like being chained to a comet. Fall from grace perhaps? Very reminiscent of Anna. Interesting image.

I loved Misha as family man Jimmy Novak with his wife, Amelia and daughter, Claire. There's a feeling of normalcy that you can feel being ripped apart as Jimmy comes to accept that he's being called to a greater purpose by Castiel and God.  I love that Misha played Jimmy as a devout man, but even when he's given his mission, he isn't portrayed as a zealot. I found it great that Jimmy took the calling as just a natural extension of his already grounded faith.  Misha played it perfectly pitched. I LOVED the blood connection here too, that Jimmy's calling is in his blood, that he was chosen because of that among other reasons, I'm sure. This presents a parallel with Sam.  Sam possesses demon blood and was "chosen" as well, whether Sam wants to acknowledge it or not.  My friend, Laughter's Melody, speculated as we watched, chatting away online all the while, that maybe Dean also possessed something in his blood that would explain his calling.  A part of me thinks that's cool, but another part of me would just love the idea that Dean's calling comes purely from the kind of man he is, imperfect, but honorable.  Of course, this IS Supernatural so there is BOUND to be a supernatural connection for Dean as well. I think my friend's on target with her theory. We'll see soon!

Dean never ceases to amaze me with his ability to want to give anyone a normal life.  I'm not saying that he's being realistic, but I just LOVE that the first thing that he wants to do is to buy Jimmy a bus ticket and send him back to his family. I'll give that maybe it's a wish-fulfillment-by proxy on Dean's part, but it's no less sweet that he wants to give him that.  I LOVE him all the more for trying, but then again, I'm a DeanGirl. Hee!  I LOVED what Dean said,

"Remember when our job was helping people? Like getting them back to their families?" 

This was SO sentimental, and yes, unrealistic.  Just like they were chosen to be hunters in whatever cosmic karma led them and their family there, Jimmy was chosen by God, by Castiel.  Sam's right. He can't go back and that becomes evident when he does go home and a friend, possessed by a demon threatens his family. No more starker reality check than that. Normal is just not in the cards for all of them despite Dean's desire to want to try to give it to anyone whom he thinks might have a chance at it.  First Adam and now Jimmy.

"I've given enough, okay?"

When Jimmy says that, you can help, but hear it resonate with the brothers, maybe less so with Sam, but even with Dean's determination to be on-mission, you can't help, but wonder if Dean will come around to that statement yet again when he has to give more than just himself to the cause.

Don't hate me, SamGirls out there, but I kind of liked that Sam's withdrawal, his need for Ruby's blood, his addiction gives Jimmy the chance to escape on his watch. The way Sam licks the blood from his hand, zealously...Ewww...Jared did a great job there. It not only hammers home how severely addicted Sam is, but it underscores that it just might be his addiction that will undo him when push comes to shove.  If you need something like demon blood to keep you strong, invincible, and without it, you become even weaker, more vulnerable then that's an Achilles Heel if there ever was one.  Sam's kryptonite. Sam is depending on that blood and you'd think that after Jimmy's escape he'd realize that depending on something like the blood could prove to put others in peril.  Of course, he now realizes that drinking ANY demon blood will give him that strength.  Ewww factor in play once again.  Does that make Sam a "vampire" of sorts? Seeing Sam with blood all over his face, I was just as taken aback by the sight as the others even though I knew it was coming. So, does this realization make him even more powerful because he can  just grab any demon and get a quick "fix"? Ewww...

SIde note:  I also have to wonder if Sam sleeps anymore?  Seems like he's become quite the night owl. Makes you wonder if that's a demon trait or not?  There was also a moment where I felt sorry for Dean because so much was happening as he slept.  Sam leaving him to get a swig of Ruby's blood, Jimmy aka Castiel, skulking out into the night to go to his family.  Not that it was probably intended that way, but this DeanGirl felt it nonetheless. I felt like Dean was being abandoned.

Anna's appearance? STELLAR!!  I loved that she made Dean swerve the car out of surprise. I like that Dean still can appreciate Anna's body.  She derides him for his comment, but I loved it, of course. It was a Dean thing to do.

Anna's observation of Sam was both creepy and had an element of contempt in it.

"Sam, you seem...different."

I like that Sam makes a joke, but Anna is dead serious that it's not his looks she's talking about, that she's feeling something different about him and rightfully so.

"That's not what I'm talking about."

You can see and feel Sam squirm...almost with an look of disgust and...snottiness, I guess. Not quite full-blown arrogance, but still projecting an attitude that wasn't concern or worry....hmmm, feeling uncomfortable around an angel...sound familiar? Ruby's reaction to Anna, maybe?

I love her concern for Castiel here.  She well understands the potential risk to Castiel, that if he had been removed from Jimmy's body, he must have angered someone and would be punished for it.  In the end, it looks like Anna was right. Castiel returns seemingly more on-mission and less the angel who harbored sympathy, conflict and doubt.  I'm not sure I'll like this change.  Castiel's doubt was what made him feel more human, more vulnerable, and of course, more attuned to Dean's sense of duty and doubt. I think this transformation was what Anna was worried about, that and a punishment that sounded pretty brutal for an act of disobedience.

"No, that's a very bad thing.  Painfully, awfully bad."

Sadly,  Anna can't shed any light on what Cas was going to tell the boys...It made me wonder if he found out something, something that the Prophet Chuck learned and that Zacariah prevented him from revealing. Something about Dean's and Sam's destinies.  That kind of information would be dangerous enough to be dragged back and prevented from being revealed given Cas's sympathies towards Dean.  I wanted to believe Zacariah was a good angel with relatively good intentions (Heck, I'm no fool, I know that the angels had everything to gain in getting Dean back on track too) from It's a Terrible Life, but after seeing him threaten Prophet Chuck from warning Dean and Sam about what he had seen, I'm beginning to wonder. There is this sense of serious grey area for me.  It's not completely clear to me whether good and evil are that dramatically different given the right circumstances.  Seems to me, good has been just as manipulative as evil in achieving a goal, to get what they want, to give just enough information to get cooperation, to keep curious minds from ascertaining something that could sway them from an ultimate goal. There's also plenty of secrets being kept as well.  Hidden agendas we have yet to learn.  *shivers.  Could be Kripke and Crew's true intent.  To cast that doubt, to blur things enough for us viewers to wonder.  Who's really right in this fight?

Jimmy's reunion with this family...oh, how the men of Supernatural have this phenomenal capacity for emotion, for tears.  Man, the best parts ARE when they cry!!!  Pass me a kleenex!  Misha is just as talented in that arena!  I like the fact that Jimmy has a family.  As painful as it may be to leave his family for his greater calling, to know that he has a daughter, not only of his flesh and blood to pass on his living legacy, but also to have a family for which he can determine his purpose even more definitively, that what was he was doing would be saving the world for them, made Jimmy all the more the poignant choice as an angel warrior. I wanted that same familial purpose for Dean.  WIth Sam so far away from him, he has no family to fight for anymore.  

Side note:  Jared does an amazing job of acting like a strung out addict when he calls Ruby. The desperation when he can't get a hold of her, essentially his dealer, is palpable and hard to accept on my part.  It's difficult to watch Sam "fall" in this way.

You know, I never get tired of Dean and Sam rescues and I LOVE that Dean saved Claire...does that ever get tiring? Hardly!!!  And when Castiel said to Dean that they were right, I love that Dean says, 

"Sorry we were."  And truly meaning it.

I loved that Dean looked pained when Sam bluntly told Jimmy the truth.  I don't fault Sam for doing that, it had to be done. Truth is hardest to swallow without sugar coating, but it was the only way to convince Jimmy that whatever hope he had, had to be squashed.  Just like Sam and Dean had to do the same. Though this DeanGirl wants to believe that Dean still harbors it, deep down  where no one, not even himself, can get to it to squash it.  Dean may doubt, he may even despair, but in the end, I believe Dean will never lose hope, at least not until all hope is really lost.  Sadly, I think that's coming sooner rather than later for Dean because his hope for Sam is diminishing.

Jimmy's rage against Castiel when his family is kidnapped resonates as words Dean has said to Cas, that he had given Cas everything he had asked of him, even more and felt betrayed by the apathy Cas was showing him.  The battle at the end, with Jimmy being shot and dying, Claire being possessed by Castiel, telling Jimmy that she has the same blood in her was AMAZING.  Even the ewww factor was great.  I loved that Jimmy begged Castiel not to take Claire and to take him, he had accepted that his fate was sealed, but that he wasn't going to consign his daughter to that life.  You can feel the sacrifice there and it is moving and touching.  Again, Misha played the love Jimmy had for his family with raw honesty and you appreciated his need to protect them.  Jimmy's choice, his sacrifice was heroic. 

It was painful to see Castiel return hardened again, but  once again, in my heart of hearts, I wondered if maybe there was still hope that Castiel might be putting on an act to keep from being discovered. I think that Zacariah isn't all that he seems so I can believe that Cas might be putting up a front. I know it's a long shot, but there's a part of me that doesn't want to leave Dean alone without the warmth of people who can use their hearts as equally as their heads which he does so well and easily.  Once he loses Sam and likely Bobby, all Dean will have will be Cas and Zacariah and though I like Cas, until I know for sure that Cas will be a confidant to Dean not just another warrior, who will order him around, I can't feel connected to this new Cas.  I also hate the idea that Dean could be transformed into another Cas. That his acceptance  to serving God in the war brings him a metamorphosis that I don't want for him, even if it makes him more powerful. The Dean who is caring, compassionate, heroic, human is what makes Dean more than just a hunter, a warrior. I don't want to lose that Dean like Cas has been seemingly lost or like Sam has been lost, both for the greater good towards the war.

I know that all Sam will have will be Ruby too, but despite what I think is a hidden agenda on Ruby's part to control Sam and maybe more that we'll learn about soon, in a way, I  see Sam as choosing Ruby's company over Dean's, siding with her knowing she can give him what he needs. Though one can argue they are in a kind of symbiotic relationship, though I think it's more parasitic given Sam's predilection, I know that nothing they could collaborate together on will result in anything good.

Side note: Having Sam kill Lillith could serve Ruby in a way we don't know yet.  I still maintain that she's not on Sam's side, that just maybe her hidden agenda is to give rise to Lucifer -- knowing she's not strong enough to do it herself, she convinces Sam to kill Lillith for her, out of revenge, another not so good rationale for killing anything  -- it's not a hard stretch and I think Lillith's role is a lot more than just being revenge fodder for Sam. I can believe that Lillith is the 66th seal, that her death brings Lucifer to Earth.

The teaser was amazing in doing a very good job at that, teasing.  I also saw the teaser clips and this spoiler hound will keep that information to herself, as promised, but I will say, it doesn't look good for Sam, but that, too, can be a red herring, it doesn't have to mean anything.  The teaser, however reveals some really interesting potentials, most painful of which is Dean's declaration to Sam that he not come back. *shivers and sobs!  The destruction of the brotherly bond, however temporary it surely must be, is gut wrenching to be an audience to.  I think we'll all be left with a gaping hole to mend over the summer until Season 5 debuts.

Thanks for reading as always. Your reviews are always appreciated. Here's to this week's When the levee breaks.  I can guarantee that I'll be broken.  It will likely leave me in a puddle to be sopped up by plenty of kleenex.

To hear him say that he doesn't care about Sam's excuses because they wouldn't mean anything to him, that they would be just words that Sam would be saying to justify what he's doing and in Dean's eyes, they were both way past that point was heart wrenching, to have Dean admit in his own way that Sam was never going to see that what he was doing was wrong. Period, end of story.

That sums up his reaction so well! I think that was it exactly. I don't think it was so much that Dean doesn't care, just that he knows Sam wouldn't listen no matter what he said. And, I also think he was planning for Bobby's call. If he and Sam had really gotten into a fight, Sam might not have been so quick to listen to Bobby and head to his place.

And though one could argue that Sam's a grown up, can make his own decisions and doesn't need Dean's permission or should care about his opinion, I'm sorry, color me naive, but that's what family and friends are for, to help us see that we're going the wrong way and to try to prevent it if they can. Sure, the ultimate decision is ours, is Sam's, but Sam had better be ready to face the consequences and likely, at first, all alone.

I agree with you completely. I think that's one of the things that's been bugging me the most. Sam just refuses to even consider what Dean is saying BECAUSE it's Dean, and he seems to think that Dean can't actually know what he's talking about anymore.

Misha Collins WAS AMAZING in this episode. I usually hoard my accolades for Jensen and his portrayals of Dean, unrepentant DeanGIrl, that I am after all, but I gotta say, Misha hit all of the fabulous sentimental notes pitch perfectly.

He really did a fantastic job. The performances were so different, and both felt so real!

I don't think Jared would take offense at me saying, he's played Sam so well, I just want to slap him silly to bring him back to his senses.

Lol, so well said! He is doing an incredible job with it!

My friend, Laughter's Melody, speculated as we watched, chatting away online all the while, that maybe Dean also possessed something in his blood that would explain his calling. A part of me thinks that's cool, but another part of me would just love the idea that Dean's calling comes purely from the kind of man he is, imperfect, but honorable. Of course, this IS Supernatural so there is BOUND to be a supernatural connection for Dean as well. I think my friend's on target with her theory. We'll see soon!

As always, thank you for mentioning me in your blog! *blushes* I agree, it is fun to think that Dean was chosen simply because he is a good man. Maybe it's both. Maybe having it "in his blood" wouldn't be enough by itself. You have to be a good, honorable person on top of it. Castiel did say in Lazarus Rising that he thought Dean would be one of the people who could hear his real voice. Maybe that explains why...

Castiel's doubt was what made him feel more human, more vulnerable, and of course, more attuned to Dean's sense of duty and doubt.

Very well said! I have to wonder if maybe Castiel is putting on an act...that maybe he's not as different as he's pretending to be. What if he knows he's being watched and knows he has to seem like a dutiful soldier once again?

Dean may doubt, he may even despair, but in the end, I believe Dean will never lose hope, at least not until all hope is really lost. Sadly, I think that's coming sooner rather than later for Dean because his hope for Sam is diminishing.

Again, so well said!!!

The destruction of the brotherly bond, however temporary it surely must be, is gut wrenching to be an audience to. I think we'll all be left with a gaping hole to mend over the summer until Season 5 debuts.

I haven't seen the clips, but oh goodness! *hides under desk*

I can guarantee that I'll be broken. It will likely leave me in a puddle to be sopped up by plenty of kleenex.

I think I'll be right there with you! I'll probably be walking around in a daze for a while... *looks really, really worried*

Awesome, AWESOME blog as always!!! :)

-Laughter

Hey Soph! I saw you stopped by the tvguide site this week! So good to see you there! You should stop by Tina's blog, too, and leave a Deangirl comment-the more the merrier! I have a feeling Dean's going to need all the support we can give him in handling the fall-out from tonight and the finale. I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous and afraid for him.

"I believe Dean will never lose hope, at least not until all hope is really lost. Sadly, I think that's coming sooner rather than later for Dean because his hope for Sam is diminishing."

What will he do when his family-the root and core of all he is and does-is ripped away from him. I am with you in thinking that Sam and Bobby will leave him-Sam by choice(and the thought that he will choose Ruby over the brother who has loved, protected, and sacrificed life-long for him, coupled with his words from Sex and Violence, makes me feel such a coldness towards Sam right now, that honestly, I'm not sure I'm going to be able to feel any sympathy for him whatsoever-no matter what's going on in his head, until and unless he makes things right with Dean. And I think you're right in that we're going to have to wait until S5 for that...*sigh*...)and Bobby...Oh, I don't even want to think of it. A whole BOX of tissues may not be enough.
:(
I liked Jimmy's story. Misha did a great job. I like it ESPECIALLY if it is a parallel for Dean's. What I came away from with in this one, is that true faith in God is a humbling thing, a thing not easily done, as it involves, among other things, the letting go of one's earthly family-it is a sad, sad thing, and Jimmy's tale was a sad, sad story, but necessary, if one is called to be a warrior of God. I think this is Dean's destiny and as hard as it's going to be to watch; I think it's going to be uplifting, too. His rebirth since he was pulled from hell has been/will be painful, but I truly believe that we are going to get to see Dean come into his own as a warrior of God, too-at least, that's what I'm hoping with all hope for! And GOSH!, I just can't help it-the shallow, shallow Deangirl in me would just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see the terrifying force for good who is Dean Winchester, wielding a flaming sword and battling evil in the Last Battle! YOWZA! Can't you just picture it in your mind...*crosses fingers*...hee!

"Anna's appearance? STELLAR!! I loved that she made Dean swerve the car out of surprise. I like that Dean still can appreciate Anna's body. She derides him for his comment, but I loved it, of course. It was a Dean thing to do.

Anna's observation of Sam was both creepy and had an element of contempt in it.

You can see and feel Sam squirm...almost with an look of disgust and...snottiness, I guess. Not quite full-blown arrogance, but still projecting an attitude that wasn't concern or worry....hmmm, feeling uncomfortable around an angel...sound familiar? Ruby's reaction to Anna, maybe?"

I REALLY like Anna and I loved these observations of yours.
The ending was the best part of the entire ep, IMO. JA's facial expressions on seeing Sam drink the demon blood-I have no words, again-even after 4 years he is still able to render me speechless. The flinch when Sam raised his hand to take out the AmeliaDemon behind him-such a wonderfully, wonderfully subtle way to let us know that the little brother who Dean raised and loved and devoted his life to is gone-replaced by someone(or thing!-because you know the sight of Sam's blood covered mouth made The Promise from Playthings spring right to his mind! That's where mine went.) that isn't Sam. Someone who, even if it was for just that moment, Dean felt might be a threat to him and by extension other humans. As an added note, the way Sam viciously and needlessly killed the human host housing the demon whose neck Sam was sucking on had to have sent alarm bells clanging in Dean's head, too. It almost seemed to me as if Sam was punishing the host and the demon inside for his dark deed...*chills*...

Sorry,I went too long. Here's the rest:

And sad. beyond. words. that Sam STILL wanted to "explain himself" in the car...Some thought Dean's despondency in the car scene at the end there was an act, but while I am sure Dean still loves and cares deeply about Sam(this goes to his very core and he will NEVER stop loving or caring about Sam, IMO-no matter what happens or what words are spoken in these next two. This I believe with all my heart. I DO hope SAM will be the one to have to work HARD to get it back, when the time comes, though), to me, there was also such an underlying and complete sadness that was very, very real. Love how Jensen did that. Love Dean. So much.
As always, thanks for a great post, Soph! See you next week!
