Sam: You sure?
Dean: Demons bone you every time.
Sam: Oh, I get it. Believe me. But…doing the math, do we have another choice?
Dean (petulantly): We could stab him in the neck.
Sam: And get my soul back…how? I think we gotta play ball. For the moment.
Dean: I have done some stupid things in my time…but punching a demon’s clock?
Sam: Just until we find another way.
Dean looks at Sam, this expression of…want…in his eyes. Wanting to trust, wanting to believe, wanting to…make it right.
D: And then?
S: We track him down and give him what’s coming to him. You with me Dean?
We close on that question, not getting Dean’s answer, but c’mon. Of course he’s with you, Sam. When has your brother not been there for you, to the ruin of all else, even himself? He doesn’t know how to not be there for you, with you, having your back.
Doesn’t mean he trusts Sam. Doubt will be there despite what Sam says because Sam has lied to his face—about big things—lately. And it’s gotta be hard to believe someone on face-value when you know they don’t feel remorse. But you can love without trusting. And one thing I do believe about family, you pretty much always give them another chance to win back your trust. Even if you’re sure it’s gonna get you hurt, you let them back in. Over and over.
Hmmm…okay, so Civil War in Heaven. Baddies on Earth increasing in number because they’re going to war. The King of Hell looking to expand to something ‘Hell adjacent’—Purgatory. I’m pretty sure this is all going to clash in some big mess and our boys? Are going to once again be right there in the middle of it.
I didn’t watch the previews. I didn’t want to make the same mistake. LOL!
Thanks for hanging with me. I look forward to your thoughts!
