This thought occurred to me after I submitted the review of “Red meat” so I wondered if any of fandom caught it as well. Did you notice Dean is wearing the read shirt….again? In a previous episode this season, he showed of a scar from a bullet hole in his leg. In “Red meat” he has a concussion and broken ribs. It just feels like the writers are expressing more of his injuries this season. On the other hand, Sam, the big W- gets a rabid virus in the premiere and cures himself with a bit of help for a vision and holy oil. He saves the day in “Safe House” and other episodes. And in “Red Meat” he is ” mostly dead” and manages to kill 2 werewolves, drive 2 cars, make a call, and save Dean at the last minute,”It took you long enough!” before receiving medical aide.A few quarts of O negative, professional grade stitches, antibiotics and he is ready to roll again with that doubting look towards Dean. Any time Dean sports that red shirt, the story goes very bad for him. Sam seems almost superhuman…again. Did he gain back some of that resilience when he burned holy oil on himself? Is he the solution to Amara? Is the shirt a hint from the writers Dabb and Berens that things are about to go very bad for Dean or is it just my gut? Is Dean red meat for the monsters?Thoughts? He does look great in red shirts.
Next episode”Hell’s Angel” re-ups the Cascifer story line along with Crowley’s assessment of how to gank Amara which comes with a price I am sure. Then it is off to hiatus land…again… until the final episodes of season 11 string us out.
Speculate. In any event, that red shirt just keeps showing up on Dean.
