Revenge gets you nowhere and it's always ugly. Logically Sam knows that, that's what he told Rowena, that's what he tells himself when he wakes up in the pitch black of night in a cold sweat with dread running through his veins.

But he still asks Gabriel how it feels, and it doesn't stop him wishing for something other than what he knows he's going to hear.

Deep down, hidden underneath all the platitudes and logic, his need for revenge is growing like a cancer that he can't cure, and one day, it just might be the death of him.

A/N: There were some feely moment in this episode that I adored, and I loved the horse guy too (I mean the eating of the apple and carrot? Too cute!) The scene after the explosion with Jack and Mary was beautifully shot, and we saw that Jack has wings!! I adored the last scene with Dean and Sam too. I focused on Sam's conversation with Gabriel's about revenge here, because it sure seemed that Sam was more than a little interested about it, and I can't help but wonder if this is linked to revenge thoughts about Lucifer (or maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part!) As always I'd love to hear your thoughts too; on the episode, on the drabble, on everything (just no spoilers please). Take care :)

This is excellent. I thought of Lucifer when Sam said that, too. I know Sam's a forgiver, but there can't really be a way to forgive what Lucifer did to Sam. I felt like that last exchange between Sam & Dean addressed the Lucifer thing, too. Sam's sacrifice and suffering in the Cage is the show's unfinished business, it seems to me, and Dean knows it (or maybe I'm reading too much into his apparent need to take the bullet this time).

Thank you so much for your lovely comment, and I'm so happy that you enjoyed this! It really seemed to me that this episode was focusing on revenge, and my brain went straight to Sam, but yes, it does seem that Dean wants to take the bullet time. Thanks again for stopping by :)

"his need for revenge is growing like a cancer that he can't cure..."

I love this line, and I fear that you're right and Sam will ignore all logic and reason to seek revenge on Lucifer.

Perhaps he'll join forces with Rowena to do so. And I think Dean was trying hard during the episode to prove how pointless revenge was, as he's so scared Sam will go after Lucifer. I adored the last scene between the brothers, too. Sam needed to get that off his chest, but Dean is just doing what he's done since he was 4 years old and looking after his little brother.

Yes, it sure seems like Dean will do anything to avoid a repeat of what went down last time Sam took out Lucifer, and I loved that reminder of big brother Dean too, as well as Sam's 'together' speech. Thanks so much for stopping by :)
