This thought has been playing with my mind for a long time. Am I okay with the idea, yes and no! So many thoughts lead me to believe that these boys are more than human beings? Shortly after or around ‘Free to be you and me’ season 5 we were informed that the boys were to be vessels almost, instantly I thought a type of dual would endure eventually. And that both brothers would be pitted against each other, until it ended in one, or either of their deaths. This almost happened in Swan Song with a twist bringing in their half brother Adam. If the show had ended with Sam and Dean going into the pit, how would fans have really felt if the boys had both ended up in the cage? Tossing around in there battling it out night and day as the arch angels hosts. I would have really loathed this at the time, and still partly do.
But what is really swaying me, if back then I wasn’t over keen on the idea of a dual being forthcoming. The vessel thought is the key to this, that I think why would the boys BOTH be vessels for a higher purpose? Why had God picked Sam and Dean and ordered Mary and John to be together come what may. Because God knew ‘it was meant to be’. The boys to me are special, purely because they are true vessels to Michael and Lucifer. Hosting an arch angel must be an honorable cause, and for Sam and Dean to have been chosen all those years ago, just adds mystic and drama for me. My imagination is easily lead astray by the story telling, and Sam already having powers, which always interested me from day 1. So being vessels does it go much deeper than this, that if the boys had said yes, would they have eventually become Michael and Lucifer with time, would they have morphed into angels at some point any way?
As time has gone by, the boys are getting older and changing as they mature. We sense they are not as humorous as they once were, and have grown up a fair deal. Can we sense this destiny for both brothers, that they are actually ‘Sons of God’ if you like to see it this way. Many would be so put off this idea, but putting it out there could be interesting to discuss those thoughts. I could also never imagine just one brother having supernatural powers, if they were both vessels. This show is also heaped with religion, so would I be surprised if it went this way?
A poster here raised this point also: (hope they don’t mind me borrowing this as I thought it was interesting)
Just throwing this idea out there: does anyone else think that Sam’s destiny is that he is and always has been a supernatural being? He, like Dean, is of the bloodlines to be an angel vessel but that ability was corrupted by demon blood. He’s done these trials which supposedly purified him but then stopped before the end, so whatever power was suffusing his body is still in it.Maybe Sam was never meant to be human at all. Just thinking about things related to Sam’s character arc. (Also wouldn’t it be very intriguing and ironic if it was Sam who’s supposed to be King of Hell? I just like the idea of it I guess.)
So type away some thoughts, and see if it could be a possibility the brothers could be something else? Would it shock, or surprise you if the show went down this road? Why would it? If you like the idea, explain away too. Are these two brothers more than meets the eye!!! Were they in fact born for a much higher purpose in life?
