Sam and Dean reunions after Dean returns from death
Human Dean vs Demon Dean
I really need to talk about that fight scene between demon!Dean and Cole. In Black we saw Dean fight and kill two demons. The two fights were edited in such a way to show their similarity and thereby show how humdrum, how meaningless, such encounters are to demon!Dean. There’s nothing remarkable or memorable about these acts, they are exactly what Dean taunts Cole with over his father’s death, the kills just merge. Killing may feed the mark through bloodshed, but Dean himself is far from sated.
And we can clearly see this lack of satisfaction in these fights on Dean’s face.
Contrast this from the look on his face when fighting Cole.
He is relishing every second of it. THIS, this right here is what feeds him. Because what he is subjecting Cole to is not purely physical, it’s psychological. He is psychologically stripping Cole down, tearing away at him in all the ways that hurt the most.
Brilliantly, we are given the visual of Dean step by step removing Cole’s defenses, first his knife, then his gun. And he discards each so theatrically easily so to psychologically dominate Cole. And with each removal of physical protection, Cole is made more and more vulnerable until he is at his tormentor’s mercy. And right then, when his opponent is at his weakest, Dean strikes the ‘killer blow’ of leaving his would-be prey to live knowing that everything he has done for half his life was for nothing. He lost. In the most brutal fashion possible.
And I find this psychological approach in Dean to just be so damn perfect. Because traditionally, souls are tortured for centuries, millennia, subjected to the most horrific of physical pain to twist them into something that delights in subjecting pain onto others. Dean’s own descent, however, was not one of physical torture but of mental, emotional. Every day as a human he psychologically flayed himself, told himself he was poison, damaging to those he didn’t deserve to have in his life. That is Dean’s pain and that is what he will inflict on others.
So when we see that look on his face when Sam has cuffed him, when he allows himself to be taken back to the bunker, when he says he won’t be showing him any mercy, then we know next week is going to be brutal. Because he knows Sam, knows Sam better than anyone. He knows exactly where the weaknesses are to strike at. And as much as he relished breaking Cole, that is nothing compared to the satisfaction, the feeding, he’ll get from breaking his brother.
Oh my god he actually breaks the bottle. “Ah, well, screw it.”
“You fool. No man can kill me.”
How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?
Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy
Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.
so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic
This revelation just knocked me over.

So I know that there have been several people who’ve talked about Crowley’s line of “Pick a bloody side!” and “I think you don’t know what you want” and how it’s a metaphor of Dean’s bisexuality. They’ve said that Bisexual’s don’t have to pick a side, obviously, just like Dean doesn’t want to.
And there’s something else I’d like to point out.
In the scene where Crowley demands that Dean “pick a side” there are four people in the room. Dean and Crowley face each other in a stand off, and a male demon is one one side of the room and a female demon on the other side.
Dean is directly in the middle the entire time.
The scene could have easily been shot with another “Just Dean and Crowley confrontation” but they decided to have these two other demons placed just so and they don’t really serve any other purpose.
Dean stays right in the middle of the two and refuses to pick a side.
there are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.
In the gag reel, between the moment when Mark Sheppard told Misha Collins “bless you” and the moment he realized what he’d said, Jensen Ackles became… 100% done.
Jensen’s face is a national fucking treasure.
