Okay, we have seen the finale, and looked into Sam a lot more, knowing how he feels about the choices he made in his life. So when we really analize what bugs Dean about the choices that Sam made, I think going with Ruby and siding with a demon over him was probably Dean’s worst possible nightmare come true! I no why it happened as the story has been told. A thread on IMDb once again sparked my imagination, and really thought about this whole scenario. Why did Sam actually make this choice above his brother, and go with a demon? Did Sam make the right choice at the right time?
Considering Sam has the brains it did surprise me why he did actually so easily walk away from his brother. I had over the years thought had Dean smothered Sam and Sam needed a break. He felt trapped! But we also no it was deeper than this, that he thought Ruby could help him succeed in killing Lilith. But again was there much more to this story. What did push Sam to walk away from Dean, and punch his brothers lights out? Can we read into this why he did walk …..
Sam didn’t know the end result of killing Lilith but he still went along with the plan and Ruby time and time again, Why? what was the real reason behind him going with Ruby if he didn’t know the full extend of the end game? Why did Sam not think that Dean could help him in killing Lilith like they’d always done. Story telling is the key yes, but what broke the relationship this time that Sam made that choice and walked away from what he knew, when he really hated the idea of being in a car with Ruby and not his own brother. Had Sam planned to go back to Dean after the job was done?
Anger has always played a huge part in Sam’s life. This we no! Wrong choices have always been Sam’s butt bearer, this we no! Was Sam using Ruby for his own gain too, but was that aim in just killing Lilith to get Lilith out of the picture? There was no romance or closer connection between Sam and Ruby to start with, so why had Sam made this bad, poor error in judgement to walk away from his brother for what he thought was the greater good? This judgement really hit Dean hard too, knowing how bad at the time that betrayal was, how did he come off from this fiasco, did we ever really understand his true feelings?
So angels can you make head or tail of why Sam did decide to ditch Dean, and wonder of to pastures new, with a demon of all people? Did he think at the time it was a good call, and the right call? Looking back, what do we think Sam thinks about this wrong choice, when it all comes flooding back and Dean reminds him of the choices he’s made, right or wrong. Love to hear your views …..
