Final scene, and itâ€™s really short. The script was several pages fewer this week. Sam and Dean run from the facility and out to a nearby field where the Impala sits. Good thing no one noticed it there and had it towed away. Dean makes a crack about Tom Cruise being right, shrinks suck. Yeah, because Tom Cruise is so well balanced. Sam stops behind the Impala, and heâ€™s not good. Itâ€™s the emotional fallout of being crazy! I know I hate it when my mind is poisoned by a wraith, I go nuts, then recover after sheâ€™s dead with plenty of emotional baggage. It ruins my grove.
Anyway, itâ€™s open for debate if Sam during that troubled look considered going back, but I think he did. It was only for a split second though. He says the wraith was right. Dean says she wasnâ€™t and sheâ€™s dead. Heâ€™s ready to get out of there and go have a drink, or twelve. â€œMost of the time I can hide it, but I am angry. Iâ€™m mad at everything. I used to be mad at you and dad and then Lilith, now itâ€™s Lucifer and I make excuses. I blame Ruby or the demon blood but itâ€™s not their fault. Itâ€™s not them, itâ€™s me. Itâ€™s inside me. Iâ€™m mad all the time and I donâ€™t know why.â€
Dean is trying very hard not to lose it himself and let Sam finish. Once Sam gets it out though, once Sam for the first time in a VERY long time opens up to Dean about whatâ€™s going on inside, Dean gives the absolute worst advice on the planet. â€œStop it. Stop it. So what if you are? What are you gonna do, you going to take a leave of absence? You gonna to say yes to Lucifer? What?â€ Sam says of course not but Dean wonâ€™t let Sam finish. â€œExactly. And its exactly what youâ€™re go to do. Youâ€™re going to take all that crap and youâ€™re gonna to bury it. Youâ€™re gonna forget about it. Because thatâ€™s how we keep going. Itâ€™s how we donâ€™t end up like Martin. Are you with me?â€
Sam looks like a puppy thatâ€™s getting scolded. Or worse, having his ass beat with a newspaper. He withdraws and sulks. So Dean asks again. â€œCome on man, are you with me?â€ Sam answers heâ€™s is, but he isnâ€™t convinced. He just doesnâ€™t know what else to do. Hmm, this does seem like a dangerously co-dependent relationship, doesnâ€™t it? Dean declares they get the hell out of there and gets in the car. Sam reluctantly follows and looks very disturbed. What do you know, I feel disturbed. The Impala drives away and roll credits.
Okay, so, Sam finally has a breakthrough years in the making and Dean shuts him down. And he actually listens to Dean and goes with him. How interesting would it have been if he started crying and went off on his own way? No, the image of going off on this own and starting the apocalypse is still too raw. Poor Sammy, heâ€™s so messed up and has no one to help him. For some reason, this ending crushed me. NOT a happy ending, thatâ€™s for sure. I theorize now Sam says yes to Lucifer just because he doesnâ€™t give a crap about anything anymore. â€œGo ahead, end the world, kill Dean, it just doesnâ€™t matter. Iâ€™m done.â€
Thatâ€™s a recap!
