SPN 10.23: “Brother’s Keeper” Pic Review
You made Mexican food for Death? Why do you never make it for me? Is Death your new BFF, Dean? First Cas, then Benny, now Death?! WTF, Dean?
Okay, that’s not what Sam really said. Although, that would have been more entertaining and equally in character. So he tries to talk Dean out of dying blah blah blah. He does the we’ll figure it out like we always do to which Death objects.
“Before there was light, before there was God and the archangels, there wasn’t nothing. There was the darkness, a horribly destructive amoral force that was beaten back by God and his archangels in a terrible war. God locked the darkness away where it could do no harm, and he created a key that would serve as both lock and key, which he entrusted to his most valued lieutenant, Lucifer. But the mark began to assert its own will, revealed itself as a curse, and began to corrupt. Lucifer became jealous of man. God banished Lucifer to hell. Lucifer passed the mark to Cain, who passed the mark to you, the proverbial finger in the dike.”
No! Not that! Anything but that!
Sam argues that they do more good than harm, which at this point is arguable itself when you start tallying up the consequences of their more questionable actions.
“You’ll never hear me say that you – the real you – is anything but good.”
Rowena’s not always wrong.
“When I left, I thought the only way out was my death. I was wrong, Sam. It’s yours.”
So Dean totally flips logic and decides that Sam has to die because the show hasn’t gone this way before. Dean who has always saved Sam, fought for Sam, died for Sam decides to kill Sam. Um, seriously?
Oh for Chuck’s sake, Dean. We know you can’t do it.
Aaaaaaand, nope, kills Death. Oops.
Rowena has no such qualms. She puts a spell on Castiel making him her attack dog and sets him on her wee boy Crowley.
Rabid Cas is funnier than he ought to be.
The band was scarier tbh
