SueB February 19, 2017 Share February 19, 2017 (edited) In response to @ILoveReading comment that Dean had nothing to do in the episode (in the spoiler thread), I offer the following: - Dean is literally front and center during the BadAss Walk (and called the 'team' to start moving) - Dean is the one who literally stands at the door to face-down the demon, makes the first confrontation and shoot the bullets - Dean is the one who engages Crowley on behalf of the group - Dean is the one who makes the plan in the barn - Dean is the one who initiates the dialog with the Prince and likely the 'torturer' if their plan had worked - Dean is the one who secures the supernatural weapon at the end In the group dynamics, and as identified by at least one cast member -- Dean is the leader of Team Free Will. They let Mary call the shots on the initial plan but Dean was still the pointy end of the spear. So Sam got to be the one to stab the Prince with the Spear. That's a big highlight but he was following Dean's lead the rest of the time. Dean was on the front lines role and took over leadership of the team as soon as the plan went sideways. Perhaps you consider that unimportant. I do not. Try another test -- was there any way for the episode to play out the same WITHOUT Dean? The answer is 'no'. Same goes for Sam, Mary, Cas and even Wally (although his role was much less). Edited February 19, 2017 by SueB 4 Link to comment
