that’s the face of a man who’s questioning every gay stereotype he’s ever been told and realizing two rugged hunters can fall in love

AND HAVE YOU LOOKED AT THE COLOURS IN THE SCREEN OR IT’S JUST ME.

do you mean the neon Texan Star beer sign being the blue/purple/pink of the bisexual flag?

coincidently, that’s the brand of beer Dean and Cas are drinking

and the brand that the bartender has to sign for before the cupid hooks him up with his true love

it’s also the brand delivered to the gas station in Heaven Can’t Wait 9.06 that Cas had to sign for while talking to Dean

and they were even positioned the same as the bartender and his soon to be bf

one behind the counter working, the other in front of the counter like a customer

but I’m sure people will say I’m reading too much into this

as predicted people are saying the beer was only used because they didn’t want to make a new prop

check out all the boxes in the store room, I wonder why they didn’t use one of those for the delivery

peanuts, yummy, and they’re in a generic brown box perfect for deliveries

this guy is delivering newspapers and Cas didn’t have to sign for them

Sacrifice 8.23 has two guys, one working and the other a customer, that are interrupted by a Texan Star beer delivery that needs to be signed for

Heaven Can’t Wait 9.06 has two guys, one working and the other a customer, that are interrupted by a Texan Star beer delivery that needs to be signed for

that’s a parallel 

#i want to believe #did Jerry direct this one? #then I might…

Jerry Wanek has only directed two episodes (Slice Girls 7.13 and Captives 9.14), his main job at Supernatural is as a producer. He started out as a production designer in seasons 1-6, which means he was responsible for the overall look of the show (costumes, props, sets, lighting etc). That’s why he tweets about the props, they’re his area of expertise and he takes special interest in them

He was given a producer credit for both of these episodes

Huh. Funny how I’ve never checked that! Thanks :-)

i personally think it’s more full on psycho than ~dark. it certainly shows sam off the deep deep deep end.

WONDERFUL!

I’ve moved on from being annoyed about Sam falling back into old…

My feelings on this is that Sam and Dean need these switched roles so to speak to better understand both themselves and each other.

Sam, fully human, doing dark things stemming from a desperation to save his brother from supernatural corruption. Its not often he’s been in that position, the reverse in fact, so he cannot empathise with the dark lengths dean has gone to to save him.

Dean, humanity lost, has rarely succumbed to the supernatural, and therefore cannot truly understand Sam’s past actions when corrupted himself. Southern Comfort highlighted this inability to forgive Sam because he cannot empathise, cannot understand.

I think this new, very dark, dynamic really does have sooo much potential for growth for both brothers, and is the necessary evil to overcome to get out of the toxic situation you describe.

Sorry for that I’m just excited

I LIKE when you put it that way - A LOT XD

Although I would add that Sam has been in EXACTLY this position TWICE before - Mystery Spot AND his summer with Ruby post-S03. In fact, as I read it, it was Sam’s recollection of the dark, supernatural lengths he went to those times, and the ‘monster’ it made of him, that led him to choose NOT to try and bring Dean back post-S08. Although he overcompensated then by going too far the other way I think.

It works really NICELY to have them simultaneously walking each other’s common paths though! 

And, while Sam may have experienced the pull of doing dark, unethical things to save his brother, you can argue that he hasn’t really properly thought to look and see how those experiences are mirrored in Dean. They haven’t properly sparked EMPATHY or true UNDERSTANDING, like you say, towards Dean on Sam’s part… perhaps…

Just like Dean’s occasional experience with supernatural power (like when he was a vamp) has yet to be something he’s looked on as an insight into SAM’S similar experiences with supernatural power.

So - yeah! With a bit of luck, with both of them rocking the other’s role in S10, they will reach a point where they look at the other, look at themselves, and UNDERSTAND they have been living through each other’s past situations. Which will help them both understand and forgive each other their past mistakes/choices and let go of old bitterness/grudges.

EEeeee! Now I want the new season now plskthx! :p

WONDERFUL!

I’ve moved on from being annoyed about Sam falling back into old habits and once again being drawn back into the toxic Winchester cycle (as I was when he went to seemingly make a deal with Crowley, or whatever, to bring Dean back at the end of S09). I now think it’ll be GOOD to have him sucked back into the toxicity. Could make for dramatic realisations all round about the need for change, to break the cycle, and greater commitment from both him and Dean to do so.

*crosses fingers* :)

I kind of like how they played with that in the sneak peek. Because for a tiny moment - and I hope this isn’t too spoilery for you, if so: SORRY!!! - the audience imo is very deliberately lead to think or take into account and ask the question if Sam might have fallen off the wagon demon blood wise. Curious to see how this is going to play out as well. :)

That’s not too much of a spoiler - it doesn’t give away any facts, just your personal interpretation, so I’m cool :) (I’m so erratic with what does and doesn’t bother me spoiler-wise, I’m sorry!)

CURIOUS…!

Kinda feeling a NEED for the new season now!

dustydreamsanddirtyscars:

10 Days until Season 10
"10 Most Memorable Moments of Season 9" → Castiel (3/10)
Day 8: 9x09 "Holy Terror"

Bruised. Battered. Bloody. But not broken. You wouldn’t tell them even just a single word, even if you knew. Your lips are sealed. You won’t beg for mercy. You won’t give them the satisfaction. No, you’d rather die. Calculating, cunning, careful. A force to mess with. You saw a chance and you took it. You did what you had to. Not what you wanted to. You didn’t choose it, because you missed being an angel. No, taking Theo’s grace was solely brought on by circumstance. Not by desperation, but because the situation called for it. You didn’t think it through. Not really. It was a means to get you from a to b, to help your brothers and sisters. It was like stealing a weapon, taking a useful tool. You didn’t like it, but it was the only way. At least that’s what you are trying to tell yourself: I did what I had to.
