30 Days of Wincest ╬ Day 4 - Favorite Season 2 Moment
Episode 9 - Croatoan
So what, so you’re just gonna give up? I mean, you’re just gonna lay down and die? Look Dean, I know this stuff with dad had-
You’re wrong, it’s not about Dad.
Season 2, being my favorite season, is utterly filled to the brim with “favorite moments” for me. But this, right here, is at the top. Both of the boys absolutely break my heart in this scene. Sam has accepted his fate, opting to shoot himself once the others were gone so that he could die on his own terms and before he could hurt anyone else. Dean, untouched by the disease, could leave with the others and be safe. But he won’t. He refuses to leave Sam. And we’re given this scene where everything they never say between them is so loud and clear that you can practically hear them screaming it. Sam desperately wants Dean to leave, because he doesn’t want Dean to die. Dean refuses to leave because he doesn’t want to go on living without Sam. So they end up, for even just a short moment, settling in to a suicide pact. And it says so much about who they are and what they have between them. This all-consuming codependency that won’t let them live without each other and places the life of their brother miles above their own.
