Did Dean MEAN to kill Death, or was there more to it?
Over on IMDb in a thread I posted a comment:
But was it Dean killing Death, could the MoC have had something to do with killing Death. By that look on Dean’s face I still don’t believe he had anything to do with it. There was something very supernatural going on there that I haven’t fathomed out yet. Whether the scythe was pulled towards death or the mark wielded Dean’s hand….
Bella I felt that way too!
Now Barb here agreed with me, so I think my suspicions maybe correctly founded here. Ever since I saw Dean’s expressions it really made me think. Did he have anything to do with killing Death? I honestly don’t suspect that he did. I believe and still do that something supernatural was at work there. I think Dean was about to kill Sam, and he was convinced he was going to do so. The strike of that scythe came so fast, I really had to slow the speed down, and watch and watch it slowly. When you see the blade fly it rises above Sam’s head. If Dean would have struck Sam in the usual manner I believe the action of the blade would have been level with Dean’s shoulders and not raised in the manner it was.
So this is partly why I think there was something supernatural at work here. One of two scenario’s keep playing out in my head which are a) That the Mark of Cain is on the suspects list. That it told Dean what to do, and it acted on Dean’s behalf forcing his hand to swipe Death, and NOT Sam. The second scenario b) Is that the Scythe is Death’s own instrument. I wonder if the supernatural is pulling itself back towards Death and killing its own Master so to speak?? Was it Death’s own words to Dean that made the Scythe act the way it did, or a bit of both?
If it is the mark at play, then does this fault lie with Dean? If it is the Scythe acting up, then does Death’s fault lie with Dean?? To me I don’t think it was his fault. Just by retracing his steps, he’s not guilty in murdering Death. If Dean was in a court of law, would he get away with it if something Supernatural was behind the death of Death??
So what is your verdict jury? Do you find Dean Winchester guilty of murdering Death? Answers on a postcard … No kidding!! But how do you see Dean wielding the Scythe against one of the most powerful supernatural beings? Was it Dean’s own actions in wanting to kill Death so as not to kill his own brother with the instrument, or something supernatural at work, what are your findings …. Do Share!
