Rewatching Bloody Mary I noticed this adorable moment I had forgotten. Usually, when Dean says something insensitive Sam will shoot him a look that says “knock it off,” and Dean will, somewhat reluctantly, knock it off. What I love about this moment is Sam knows Dean’s done dealing with the guy they’re talking to—knows a chiding look isn’t going to cut it because Dean’s frustration is justified. So instead, Sam pats Dean on the shoulder and puts himself between the two of them so he can deal with the situation in a different way. A little blink-and-you-miss it moment that perfectly illustrates how Sam looks out for Dean.
When it’s about your brother, you get so emotional your brain goes right out the window. [Dean ver]
We just snuffed his brother, you idiot. You wanna spend the rest of your life knowing Dean Winchester’s on your ass? [Sam ver]
The longer you watch the more childish they get
I could show it to you
Help me please
one of the reasons this scene was so disturbing, I realized, was the sexual tone of it. The man is using the weapon to delicately, sensually move Sam’s hair and expose his face. It’s a creepy thing done in a way that twists appreciation and intimacy in the most disturbing way. What should be a loving gesture becomes horrific and hateful a dangerous. Usually women are in these scenes - SO OFTEN women and girls are placed in these scenes by our media - and we’re so used women in this situation in media, that is becomes normalized, comfortable, customary, used as sexy. Not as often do we see a helpless man being threatened by another man in a way that has creepy sexual undertones to it. It made the scene really uncomfortable and upsetting, in the way it always should be.
Dean + being sick of the bullshit
