Recap: Supernatural Episode 11, Appointment in Samarra

Tessa: I thought you wanted the girl to skate by?

Dean: No one skates by.

Not even Winchesters who have a way of cheating the uncheatable. They each carry the burden of their deals and even when they win they feel a loss. He whispers to the sleeping dad to say his goodbyes and then…takes the girl. That just hurt me. Not that he did it, but that it happens. It all happens. *shakes self* Since I had my daughter (which was at the beginning of Season 2) child-related tragedies are simply harder handle. Which, I suppose, makes them that much more effective because of what they also do to our hero.

The girl stands at the foot of her bed with Dean and Tessa.

Girl: What about my dad?

*sniff* It killed me that for her it wasn’t about ‘why me’ but ‘what about my dad’…it just felt really real as far as how a kid would react. It’s how my kid would react.

Dean: He’ll be fine.

Girl: Really?

Dean: I have no idea.

Girl: I can’t just leave him. It’s not fair.

Dean: I know.

Girl: Then why?

Dean: Because…(he crouches down to her level, his face drawn) there’s a natural order to things.

Girl: The natural order is stupid.

Dean: I agree with you there.
