First this story line gripped me, now its kicking in, my thoughts are heading towards the finale and how this story line penultimately builds and where it leads our hero. Dean has been bestowed this magical gift which he has at his disposal. He first used the blade and wasn’t use to its power and soon dropped it. He found it hard to scummed to its presence. Magnus intervened and Dean appeared in more control. He appeared more focused and in touch with the blade than when he first introduced himself to it.
Sam appears to be the one person who is able to break Dean from his trance. I think Dean will need this comforting voice to break him free from his chains entirely. But where will this end up? I keep thinking about Abaddon and Cain, that these are both Knights of hell, and if Dean does kill them both, where does this leave him? Some of us are already thinking this that he could end up Crowley’s henchman, but would Sam honestly let it get this far? Would he let his brother end up in hell without a care in the world for Dean. I can’t or don’t want to see this. So are Sam’s cruel words heading some where, that he didn’t really, really mean them and was as we thought lashing out at Dean. Or are they weaving them into the story to actually mean something, that Sam doesn’t give a damn about where Dean ends up.
Dean already looked as though he was hinting at wanting to turn the blade on his brother, for the harsh words he’d said about their relationship. Which was what I’d thought that those feelings are penetrating deep into Dean isolating him from Sam and keeping the boys at a distance from each other for a firm reason. Those words trigger Dean into using the blade at some point fueling his need to kill the person with the blade like its automatic. He sees Sam as depressing thoughts which have hurt him personally. Which catapult Dean further down this spiral into a freaky killing machine. If Sam had said kinder words would this have fed Dean I doubt this very much. So its also strange that Sam’s voice appears to lift him out of this trance.
So where does this eventually leave Dean down the line? I have several thoughts running loose in my head like a bouncing ball. We are mainly all on the same page that Dean will spiral out of control and be in a position that he himself won’t be able to break free from it. The power of the blade will completely take over him hook, line and sinker. He will be lost, and alone in such a dark, bleak, place, that I can’t begin to comprehend what it will be like for him. Sam on demon blood was bad enough, I don’t think we’ve seen anything like what this blade could do with Dean when it fully over powers him. I think firstly Sam may break him loose from the blade, and get rid of the mark. But how possible this is in fiction I don’t no. I would like to see Sam be the one who removes Dean from the mark completely. I also think that Dean could end up killing Sam with the blade itself. But what is the point in this if Sam died last season, its just bringing them back to square one, and Dean will end up doing a deal again to bring Sam back. I can’t seem them going there.
Which brings me onto my final point I think the blade will over power Dean so much that he can’t bring himself to kill Sam and will turn the blade on himself and that he will be the sacrifice this season. Remember Freaks and Geeks! It will mean one thing that Sam will end up eating his words and doing a deal yes to save Dean. He will bring his brother back from the dead. I think this is a superb thought as it will also bring the brothers full circle and it will go a great way into healing the brothers bond, that under the same circumstances they would do it for each other come what may, they would save each other under dire circumstances, as they can’t live without each other. I think this is a perfect ending to the season or even into the premier after the summer. I also feel strongly it will help repair Sam’s bond with the fans. Which in my mind is long over due since season 4, when this season is of course over shadowing season 4. I want to see the old Sam make a come back. Season 3 Sam who would prevent his brother from going to hell. Who would do anything to stop it from happening. I no its in Sam, in a far forgotten place in his physic. I’ve never given up hope in Sam that he does care so deeply for Dean the writers just need to show us again.
So as ever Bella is jumping up and down wondering what you are thinking about her thoughts if this could work. Or its an utter waste of time. I think it will be a climatic end which would keep the audience in suspense. I also think it would help the bi-bro fans and Sam fans in restoring faith that they think the brothers relationship is sinking into the obis for ever and a day never to be seen again. I think the boys need this to revive their current angst and see it put to rest. Wounds are deep, and it feels a perfect way to restore the tragic words that have penetrated us all for weeks.
