Upstairs, the boys load various implements of demonic destruction with rock salt in silence for a while until Sam wonders if Ruby's telling the truth about his dormant abilities. Dean stares at him like Sam's some sort of side-show freak. "Quit looking at me like that," Sam frowns, averting his gaze. I don't know whether to laugh or whack Dean upside his judgmental, doomed head with a spoon. In any event, debate ensues until Dean seethes that crap about not making the same mistake again, and Sam flails his arms around, all, "I don't even know what that means!" so Dean patiently explains the entire situation to College Boy, here. Every single time one of them's been facing death, the other's been far too willing to trade away his soul. It happened with their worthless bastard of a so-called father when Dean was lying comatose at the beginning of the last season, it happened again with Dean when Sam was lying actually dead at the beginning of the last finale, it's happening again right this instant with Sam, and as far as Dean's concerned, that touchy-feely self-sacrificing yoga crap stops now, bitch. "All I'm saying," Dean ultimately admits after they've seated themselves side-by-side for a heartfelt chick-flick Suisse Mocha moment, "is that you're my weak spot. You are. And I'm yours. And those evil sons of bitches know it, too. I mean, what we'll do for each other? How far we'll go? They're using it against us!" "This sounds familiar!" Raoul brazenly interrupts, and be quiet, you shrieky fool! You're interrupting A Touching Scene. "Well, you'll excuse me, I'm sure, but if you failed to transcribe this speech the first time it was delivered, why are you bothering with it now?! Have we no VIOLENCE to witness!? Is there no GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE?!" You're right, my scaly friend, you're right: I have no excuse. I just thought it was kind of cute that The Kripkeeper had Dean unwittingly parrot Loki, or whatever the hell that guy's name was. "Unless the dear little doomed boy is not just mindlessly aping that tedious little speech from earlier in the season! There are no coincidences!" Wait, so you're saying...? "Yes!" The Trickster planted this...this made-of-fail speech into both their brains during that episode? "Yes!" Thereby ensuring Dean's ultimate doom in the season finale? "YES!" Raoul! You're awfully smart for someone whose brain is the size of a walnut. "Thank...HEY!" Oh, I kid.
