Sam tries again to talk sense to Dean. Granted, they can't be sure Castiel is a demon...Dean cuts him off. That's exactly his point; they don't know for sure. Oh my word are these two ever going to stop arguing? Not forever, then there'd be no show, but in this scene? Dean booms that he's not going to believe this 'thing' is an angel of the Lord just because it says so, and Bobby comes to my rescue. "You two chuckleheads want to keep arguing religion or you want to come take a look at this?" Oh Bobby, don't. It doesn't take much to set off the people in the forums. Castiel blinded Show Barnes, not TWoP Barnes. Sam and Dean look away from each other in disgust and mope their way over to Bobby. Dean must be wearing lifts, because although Jensen Ackles is a tall man himself, he's usually dwarfed by the Ginormatron when they share a shot, yet he isn't in this one. Bobby cuts to the chase. "I got stacks of lore: Biblical, pre-Biblical; some of it's in damn cuneiform. It all says an angel can snatch a soul from the pit."
Sam puts on his hit-me face, and looks at Dean, who quietly asks, "What else?"
Bobby's puzzled. "What else what?"
What else could do it?
Air-life your ass out of the hotbox? As far as I can tell, nothing."
Dean looks at Bobby, intently. Sam's such a cheerful puppy; he can't contain himself or his smile. "Dean, this is good news!" When Dean asks how, he answers, "Duh." Well, no but don't you think he should have? I mean, hello, Dean. Wouldn't it be nice to have an angel helping you instead of a demon hunting you? The chuckleheads end up dragging Bobby into their religious argument. Dean's all: So there's a God? Bobby's like, I'm thinking yeah. Sam's all, Whoopee, I can compare it to science now, instead of faith. I'm all, Oh get to the bloody next scene. We get it, show. Dean's having a hard time accepting the fact that an angel saved him. This was covered extensively in the season premiere. It follows that he's having a hard time thinking that there's a God, and one who thinks he's worth saving. He's not worthy. He's a thief. He's a slutty, slutty boy. He's just a regular guy. Why him? Blah blah skip the pie and eat-some-therapy-cakes. When Sam explains that Dean must be a regular guy who is important to 'the man upstairs', Dean says, "Well that creeps me out," with a look that makes the whole scene worth watching. "I mean, I don't like getting singled out at birthday parties, much less by...God." Sam's had it with Dean's issues, and is immune to his look. "Too bad, Dean, because I think he wants you to strap on your party hat." It might have gotten lost what with all the dying and all, Sam. Maybe you could give him yours? Dean clears his throat, but his voice is still all husky, not that I notice these things. "Fine, what do we know about angels?" Bobby hefts a pile of mostly huge books and plops it down in front of the boys, telling them to start reading. Dean points at his brother and says, "You're gonna get me some pie!" Dean grabs the smallest book off the top of the pile and storms off.
