On this show Death has happened to our heroes a few times now, and we’ve come to expect that our main heroes at some point come back to life. Its a done deal! In the past Sam has come back to life, and Azazel threatened Dean did your brother come back 100% Sam. Had death some how changed his personality and that Sam wasn’t the same person who was resurrected back in season 2. This season has reflected seasons 2 and 4 in almost perfect symmetry having seen Sam die and the coin once again flipped on its head, and it was Dean’s turn to take that fatal blow. We sensed that Dean was the victim and he sadly took death like the hero he is gallant until his last dying breath, I’m proud of us really struck home. It made me think about humanity a lot this season and last. And I begin to think there is a strong connection.
But I think Dean is almost the opposite to Crowley. Crowley almost became human because of the trials and has human traits about him now. Dean has lost those human traits and has become like Crowley was, demonic. When we think about our own humanity, deeply. What do we think we would have lost if we were in Dean’s shoes. Crowley isn’t totally human now and his demonic powers haven’t diminished what so ever. So will Dean still have his Deanisum’s. What will he miss, but just as important, what will he have gained? Dean virtually took his own life as he didn’t want to be this monster he was turning into. So death was his way out. He was loosing his self respect, his well being and his free will! Certain mannerisms made Dean, Dean. We all have our own feelings as to how we see Dean Winchester. So coming back from the dead how will it change him. What will now empower him to take on the world like this horrible killing machine he’s become. Life as Dean knows it for now, is empty, hollow and grim. Will he recognize himself? Will he acknowledge the fact that he is different and mirror what Sam used to be?
If Dean does come back from this, will it have affected him? Will he remember his time as a Demon, like he remembered his time in hell? Will those demonic forces have wrecked his insides that there might be some reminisce inside him that he won’t ever be the original Dean he once was. I did wonder how twisted Dean’s soul will be that demons enter a body, this time for Dean it was different the blade had performed the transformation. I still have a few niggling doubts as to how Dean did fully become a demon through the blade when it does take years to twist a soul in hell. What is Dean actually now in demon ranks, how high up is he, and how far down the road is he?
So how do you feel about Dean loosing his humanity? Will it change him for ever that he will be so corrupted we won’t no him at all. That the last trace of Dean will be gone forever! Loosing part of his character that made him human will be a transformation not all are looking forward to seeing, that a supernatural Dean who has been influenced by great power will rule Dean. Can Dean break through and regain his own humanity back, or is that way off the scale now? Is Sam Dean’s only hope of gaining back his humanity. Is this darkness for life, that the blade has taken every last ounce of Dean who will never see the light again. It is powerful stuff that has taken the stuffing out of us, but there is always that glimmer of hope that goodness will overcome that darkness within him and all will be hunky dory again. How do you think Dean will cope. And adapted to his new found powers?
