Season 9: How it has established that Dean Winchester’s endgame includes a love interest, and what that means for Dean and Cas.
If season 9 of Supernatural has established one thing, it’s that Dean Winchester craves love in his life, but feels as if he doesn’t deserve it. Feels as if he can’t have a romantic partner while still being a hunter. And who can blame him? We all saw what happened with Lisa.
But I believe, regardless of anything that has happened in the past, Dean will be getting a love interest, and I think that love interest is Castiel.
The opening sequence for season 9 asks the question, who do you love? Right off the bat, it is established that love is going to be a major theme this time around. While love has always been a major theme in Supernatural, 9x02 lets us know that we are not only dealing with familial love this time around. This time there are two loves:
- Wet hair
- Comb through
- Separate at the part
- Draw a pentagram on the floor
- Perform blood sacrifice
- Offer up your soul to the devil
- Chant ancient Latin conjuration spell
- Summon Satan
- Ask Satan to braid your hair
You know what?
Screw you. I am done braiding people’s hair. Do you know how many braids I have done today?
And I don’t even get a “Hey Satan how’s it going your cloven hooves look fabulous today” it’s just “Braid it. Go.”
