A Beginner’s Guide To Communing With The Dead
Maybe it’s the little girl whose disappearance turned into a murder, and whose murder turned into a cold case, and who has now apparently decided to move in with him. Maybe it’s the unacceptable hole left in his life when his dumb best friend and partner in (the prevention of) crime decided to go and get himself killed. Maybe it’s his brother, whose high-profile career and fantastic girlfriend and first-child-on-the-way are steadily leaving Dean in the dust. Pick one. Pick all of them. The why doesn’t matter so much as the what, and the what is this: Dean is pretty sure he’s going completely, certifiably insane. Sure, he hasn’t started wearing all his clothes inside out, and he still showers on a regular basis (anyways, that’s not crazy, just a little eccentric); but there’s no getting around the fact that he just threw away his life, his career, and his reputation by dragging out his mom’s old necromancy book and summoning a Class A Forbidden Entity to his attic. A cranky one, too. With horrendous bed-head.
Can we talk about this? Can we talk about all the different people Dean has ever hugged, and what those hugs meant? Can we talk about even though the hugs came forth from the same situation (such as reunion), they still all mean different things? Like how the one with Mary has so many emotions (pain, loss, disbelief that she’s really there, etc.), and the one with Cas stems from worry and probably some guilt as well. Or the different friendships: Benny and Dean’s came initially from mutual benefit, where Dean and Charlie just clicked.
Can we also talk about how half of the ones in this photoset have happened in Season 8? How Dean is learning to express himself ever better, how he’s becoming less scared to show his feelings toward others; which we also see in the reasons of his hugs now? It’s not just reunions anymore or ‘i thought i’d never see you again’. There’s gratitude and love and joy, such a range of emotions compared to a few years ago.
Let’s have a moment of silence for how far Dean’s come regarding personal and emotional development.
Can we also have a moment for Jensen’s acting? Because shit. He conveys each of these so differently. He takes a hug and transforms it into a tool. Like real life, there are different hugs for different occasions and Jensen just nails all of them.
They ask, “Where?”
You answer, “I don’t know.
All I know is that it hurts.
It hurts, it hurts, it hurts.”
Can i come along please?
