  1. I agree. I actually think that the MoC arc was as much about 'teaching' Sam that what he said in The Purge was wrong, because he would do whatever it took to save Dean, even if Dean didn't want it, as it was about Dean being in Sam's shoes on the flip side.
  2. Head canon is sometimes the only way to explain things on this show. Personally, I think that Lucifer was in control, and that made the vessel his, so it did work on him. I guess I've always thought that it works on their grace, so maybe it was both, since Cas was there too, but I'd think that would mean they would have been separated if it was banishing them both to parts unknown. If regular angels see it coming, they can make the sigils vanish, so I've always just thought that archangels are supposed to be faster/more powerful, which would make getting those sigils drawn without them stop
  3. I think Sam used it against Lucifer in The Vessel.
  4. Admittedly, I haven't seen the episode yet, and I'm not sure when I'll have the chance, but I'm not sure that it isn't something Dean would do. From what I've read, the one thing that keeps sticking out to me is the scene in Devil's Trap where Dean says, "Killing that guy, killing Meg. I didn’t hesitate, I didn’t even flinch. For you or Dad, the things I’m willing to do or kill, it’s just, uh .... it scares me sometimes." Now, I know the show and Dean have come a long way since then and killing meat suits isn't an issue anymore, but I think that if you substitute Mom for Dad, it could apply
  5. Didn't she bring up the BMoL in Regarding Dean? I remember, because I thought they'd use it to bring her more on board last season and didn't. Let me see if I can find it. ROWENA: Once, a beautiful witch was, again, run out of her homeland by those pompous, self-righteous, murderous hooligans. You know them as the British Men of Letters. She doesn't say she was captured, but there's some room there to make it work if you want to see it.
  6. I'm really having a hard time with this one. As far as I'm concerned, it is a false equivalent. Are we going to blame Sam and Dean because leviathans took their form and used their memories to gun down people in towns they went to in season 1? Are we going to blame the men the shapeshifter in Skin 'became' before it killed their wives and girlfriends, or blame Dean for what the shifter said and did when it went after Sam later in the episode and almost killed him? No, because they weren't the ones who did those acts or said those things. An entirely separate entity from them, namely monste
  7. Were you thinking about when he sent the tweet out last year saying his thoughts were with those in Dallas, Louisiana, and Minnesota, a Martin Luther King Jr. quote, and #NoViolence? Because I seem to remember there being something of an 'uproar' about that.
  8. Sorry, this is so late. I just saw this. It's interesting that you say that, because Kyle Reese would often be considered the protagonist and Sarah Connor is the focal character. The way you see that movie is consistent with how you see Sam and Dean's roles.
  9. Except that this contradicts what's in the show and why I don't think it should be considered canon even if it is "sanctioned". In Home we know what on the first sentence of the first page, John's journal said, "I went to Missouri and I learned the truth." None of that other stuff. To be honest, I know that Dean having 'fuzzy memories' was introduced into the discussion, but I'd go the other way with it. I think Dean was old enough to remember, which to me has always meant that he was old enough to remember having, not only a mother, but a 'doting' father, a home, and safety, snatch
  10. Let me see if I can explain this in a way that makes sense. I'll most likely fail, but I'll try. I think you have to take everything we know about Dean going all the way back to season 1 when they were building these characters and their story to understand it. Dean built his self-worth, not on being wanted by members of his family, but in being needed by them. There is a vast difference between the two. One is predicated on being important to someone because they want you in their lives. The other is being important to someone because they need something from you, are dependent on you,
  11. Well, in fairness, I always thought that Carver intentionally forgot about Sera Gamble's era, so how could Sam be expected to remember anything like the portal Cas opened?
  12. Not that it means anything, but I don't think Sam was going to Rufus's cabin, so he could start hunting again. This: This: And this: Are some things Sam says in the first 3 episodes that make me think that. I think these and other things he says or the way he says some things are the reason why some people might think that he was resentful of Dean coming back, not that Dean was alive, but that he was hunting again, and to him, Dean represents hunting on some level. It wasn't that he disparaged Sam trying to build a life with her, or he wouldn't have said this:
  13. Just going to chime in here. As with everything else, I guess it depends on how you interpret what's on screen. Some ignore scenes. Some forget scenes. Some take what's in a scene and run with it. Some need more than what's in a scene for it to be considered on-screen canon. I'm guessing that if everyone here was asked what parentification means, there wouldn't even be a similar starting point. Medical textbook definition: the assumption of a parentlike (or adult) role by a child. It's not in Merriam-Websters, but yourdictionary.com has it as: A process of role reversal whereb
  14. No worries. I just think that sneaking around and keeping a secret about having an amulet because you don't want your brother to think you aren't respecting his wishes makes it seem as though said brother would be angered by it. I see no other reason for secrecy. Out of respect for said brother's wishes doesn't work for me, because if you think Sam kept it, then it was his and no longer Dean's, and why would Dean care what he did with it? If he took it thinking Dean might want it again some day, then there were plenty of times over the years he could have given it back. If he kept it for
  15. No, I'm saying that's how I see your argument for why Sam might have kept it to himself.
