NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (10x03 sneak peek)
'Bout time Sam had a wake-up call. Maybe realized the whole world doesn't revolve around him…that maybe he's the reason they live such a shit life.
Alright, boys and girls, take a seat, because class is in session.
Point one - the previous responder’s claim that Sam thinks the world revolves around him - Sam. The one who says ‘I’m the least of any of you,’ when consigning himself to eternal torture with the Devil to save the world. Sam, who didn’t want to mention his hallucinations of said Devil because he didn’t want to add to Dean’s burdens. Sam, who stuck with Dean through thick and thin, always coming back no matter how much Dean hurt him. Sam, who undertook the Trials to close the gates of Hell so that Dean would be proud of him, because he couldn’t bear letting him down again. Sam, who worked with Dean after Dean violated him, who set aside his own issues and trauma because there was a much bigger threat to deal with.
Point two - Sam is the reason that the Winchesters have a shit life - I don’t know if you missed this in biology and health ed, but babies don’t really get a choice in being born. Literally. They don’t get the choice, because their mother’s body decides to kick them out, and their mother makes the choice to push them out. And, y’know, not get an abortion at some point during the first trimester.
Fast forwarding six months, Sam did not make the choice for Azazel to come into his nursery and kill Mary. In fact, Mary was the one who led to that, because she made a deal with Azazel to bring John back. Sam’s entire existence had been orchestrated by Heaven and Hell for decades, if not more, so that Michael and Lucifer could have their grudge match.
So, what? Should Sam have killed himself to deprive Lucifer of his vessel? Before he even knew he was a vessel? Should Sam have killed himself so that John wouldn’t hunt for Azazel? Because Sam didn’t know anything about their life until he was eight. Should he have killed himself when Lucifer came to him the first time, when Lucifer explicitly told him that he’d resurrect him? How should he have removed himself from the picture?
Should he have stayed dead at Cold Oak? That wasn’t his choice, Dean brought him back. Should he have not tried to find a way to save Dean from eternal torture?
Sam specifically stayed out of Dean’s life for a year, so that he could build a life with Lisa and Ben. He only stepped in when Dean’s life was in danger, and Dean was the one who made the choice to return to hunting. Dean’s life sucked because he chose to stay in a life that was hurting him. And every time Sam tried to remove himself from the picture, Dean dragged him back.
And there’s the bell, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
