- This mark was given to Cain by Lucifer. There are only two possible scenarios in which Cain could receive this mark; either Lucifer touched him using a vessel or in his true form, somehow.
- The mark of Cain can only be worn by someone worthy, as explained by Cain. The conditions required to be considered such are unknown although Cain stated that Dean is very similar to him as both brothers sacrificed themselves in order to save Sam and Abel respectively. Dean inquired as to whether he needed to be a killer like Cain, to which he replied he did: It’s possible that the mark can only be worn by people who have killed, as well as other requirements.
On Supernatural, it wasn’t God that Abel was all cozy with, it was Lucifer, and Cain killed his brother to save him from the devil. The mark wasn’t a punishment from God, but rather a “gift” (sort of?) from Luci, enabling Cain to wield the First Blade—the one he used to off Abel—to train Knights and slaughter those Knights later on when Cain fell in love and renounced his super-demon ways.
This mark of Cain is still making me think, that this is the big myth arc for the season and where it is pushing the boys, and in that I mean in particular Dean. Already Dean is showing us signs that the mark is making him much more powerful in his knife throwing skills in ‘Sharp Teeth’ killing the werewolf. His aim is much more magnified, and so horrifyingly accurate in its delivery. He’s so sharp. But his facial expressions are what concern me. We have the knowledge now that the Mark of Cain isolates the bearer. And in our case, this is Dean from Sam.
If you look at Dean in the end clip, how abandoned and defeated he looks. Its already working its mojo on Dean working from the inside of his body, like controlling him. Sam this season had Gadreel inside him controlling him, now Dean is suffering a similar fate. Sam lately has been sending Dean not so nice words not to hurt Dean. But to help we think their current problems within the relationship. What I think might be happening is that Sam’s harsh words are being produced in a way in Dean’s mind to force him in to a black hole of despair, abandonment and loneliness. If we read up on those notes of Cain, Cain is eventually abandoned by his family. Because of the mark. So the same story is beginning to pan out with Dean. Dean will eventually spiral out of control. Because of the problem the boys are currently in. Maybe the mark is playing tricks with him thinking did I really here Sam say that. Distorting the truth.
What I also learnt from my Google search on the Mark of Cain was that it wasn’t God that Abel was all cozy with, it was Lucifer, and Cain killed his brother to save him from the devil. The mark wasn’t a punishment from God, but rather a “gift” (sort of?) from Luci, enabling Cain to wield the First Blade—the one he used to off Abel—to train Knights and slaughter those Knights later on when Cain fell in love and renounced his super-demon ways. So if this story is going where I think it might and this could flow through into season 10 which many already assume. I have also read the blade is protection for Cain and Cain can not be killed if he obtains that mark. So where the hell does this leave DEAN? This is spooky. Some are saying Sam will die as Abel did via Cain’s hands. Sam won’t be able to kill Dean because he’s protected. So who is going to die at the hands of Cain’s mark? Sam can’t kill Dean for reasons above so is Dean going to kill Sam and not bring him back this time? Could Cas bring back Sam as Sam’s redemption arc. I don’t know what to think as this myth arc will be amazing if they are following this story?
Have you all any thoughts on this mark, what do you think it will entail? Is Dean caught in a trap he can’t so easily get out of, and where will it leave the both of them. Abaddon is the main piece in this arc and the main reason for Dean to take on the mark of Cain in the first place. What happens if they don’t kill her? What happens to Dean if he does kill Cain in the end? Where does this leave this retched mark? Its all ready taking on one of our heroes were by the end of the season will it leave them both?
