This clip got me thinking and trying to read between the lines and what Crowley was stipulating to Moose.
[A phone rings next to CROWLEY as he watches DEAN playing darts in the bar. He looks at the ID and then picks it up]
CROWLEY: You’re dead.
SAM: Nope. Just using a dead man’s phone.
CROWLEY: Moose. Took you long enough. Your brother and I were beginning to wonder if you’d hit another dog. You know?
SAM: My brother is dead, Crowley. I know you have some freaking demon parading around in his meatsuit, and trust me, you are gonna pay for that.
CROWLEY: Moose. Moose. I’m afraid you haven’t allowed yourself to dream quite big enough here. Your brother is very much alive, courtesy of the mark. And the only demonized soul inside of Dean is his and his alone. Wee bit more twisted, a little more mangled beyond human recognition, but, I can assure you, all his. There, now. Feel better?
SAM: And the, uh, Abaddon supporters you’ve been sending to kill my brother, how does Dean feel about that double-cross?
CROWLEY: If that’s what you think is happening, then you’re more out of your depths than I thought.
SAM: I don’t know how you did this, what kind of… Black-magic stunt you pulled, but hear me –I will save my brother or die trying.
CROWLEY: You know what tickles me about all this? It’s what’s really eating you up. You don’t care that he’s a demon. Heck, you’ve been a demon. We’ve all been demons. No, it’s that he’s with me and he’s having the time of his life. You can’t stand the fact that he’s mine.
SAM: He’s not your pet.
CROWLEY: My pet? He’s my best friend, my partner in crime. They’ll write songs about us, graphic novels. “The Misadventures of Crowley and Squirrel.” Dean Winchester completes me, and that’s what makes you lose your chickens.
SAM: I am going to find you, I am going to save my brother, and then I’m going to kill you dead.
CROWLEY: Well, that’s the operative phrase, isn’t it? “Find you.” good luck with that.
[CROWLEY hangs up the phone and SAM looks at his. SAM then lays the phone next to his own on the hood of the car. SAM’s phone has traced the call and it reveals they are at The Black Spur in North Dakota]
It wasn’t until Sam said ‘He’s not your pet’. I thought of Cain and his words rang in my head. It was what Cain feared all along would happen to his own brother. This was why Cain killed Abel so he wasn’t a pet to Lucifer. That this is perfect symmetry.
- How did Sam know Crowley was double crossing Dean and feeding him demons to feed the mark?
- If Crowley wants Dean as his best friend, is this the best he can do?
- Why Dean, why was Dean SO important to Crowley that he wanted Dean on his side so badly? To fit what purpose exactly?
- If the writers were plotting this against the real Cain and Abel story so far back, where is this going to lead?
- Why did Cain say its Dean’s destiny to kill his brother?
- For what reason does Dean end up killing Sam? If of course this is where the series is going?
