I wanna know what was going through his head. Was he hoping the guy would do it? Was he feeling relieved that his misery would finally be over? Did he know something they didn’t, like he’d be brought back anyway? Did he want to die?
And the quick look he gave Sam. What was he thinking then? Sorry? Goodbye? I wish you didn’t have to see this? He’s gong to kill me, but you’re going to get out of here?
SOMEONE ASK JENSEN FOR PETES SAKE!
What if the mark of Cain is taking away his emotions. Like, Cain was distant,and I had assumed it was form years of suffering and being alone, but maybe the mark did it to him. That’s how he was able to kill so easily, he didnt have guilt or remorse or other human emotions. and dean might be losing his too.
I really love your theory. Like its stripping away his humanity or something? kinda like what singleacorn suggested in their reply.
Though he showed humanity in other parts of the episode, but maybe thi sis something that creepy slowly, and obviously a warrior needs to be fearless so maybe the first stepping to stripping Dean’s humanity it silencing the part that cares about his own welfare?
But, I mean, he is acting very much like someone who is extremely depressed would act. If you mirror the sitting-on-his-bed-listening-to-music-through-headphone and this scene in question, they’re tell tale signs of someone who is extremely depressed and even a bit suicidal. We know Dean has been suicidal in the past (he killed himself once, and practically almost killed himself in season 5 with Michael), and with everything that’s been going on lately, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s tripping on that rocky cliff face again.
But when you throw in that he’s been marked with something as strongly demonic as The Mark Of Cain which can only be worn but someone who is deadly and as murderous as the bearer before them….
THIS IS NOT A GOOD COMBINATION!!!!
OH MY GOD! What if the whole fight with sam is being used to cover up that he’s losing this humanity. Like, he’s not having as much human contact so you won’t notice little things. If he and Sam were back to normal, sam would have noticed little changes. But sam is mad and not paying attention and that could be why the writers are drawing this out?
^ good point. And he doesn’t have anyone else around him. I’m interested to see if Caatiel will react to Dean like 2014!Cas did to 2009!Dean, like if he’ll notice something is off the second he looks at him since Castiel hasn’t seen Dean since he split from them in 9.10…
dad knew who you really were. good solider, nothing else. daddy's blunt little instrument. your own father didn't care whether you lived or died. why should you?
