Ignoring everything that has been happening lately, NOONE can deny that the look on Sam’s face when he realises the crazy dude is going to cut Dean’s throat is sheer terror.
Just listen to these words again and again and again. Watch Sam’s expression closely. Whatever everyone thinks, Sam STILL cares. It’s stupid to actually think that he would be ok with Dean dying. He worries about him and he loves him. He’s just too hurt to fully show it. He keeps his distance.
And look how Dean barely flinches, doesn’t try to fight it at all….
People don’t realize that it’s SPECIFIC!!! Sam will forever save dean and do whatever it takes to save dean as long as Dean wants to be saved. It’s when he DOESN’T that Sam feels he would no longer do “anything” to save his brother.
But can we talk about how Dean doesn’t even look scared that he’s about to have his throat slit. He only flinches at having his shoulder tugged back. Even when he’s sitting there and he KNOWS the guy is right behind him, the camera has been turned on, the scene is set, and he is about to die. He doesn’t even look like he fucking cares! He just looks at Sam with this “Well, this is it, you won’t have to put up with me any more” look and IT HURRRTS
Damn Dean looks at Sam and it just seems like ‘fuck it, it’s not worth a damn anymore anyway.’ This makes my guts clench. Painfully.
