Dean watches in the background more, knife in hand, ready to attack at any second. Demons start dropping and back to Sam, whoâ€™s really into this now. He is so getting his fix and youâ€™ve got to admit, five demons at once is impressive. I think Dean is a little less on the impressed side and more on the scared out of his freaking wit side. He was bound to see Sam like this eventually. Think about it. Dean has always been a â€œsee is believingâ€ kind of guy. He probably had no real grasp on how powerful Sam was until he saw this. He really did have to see for himself. He gets it now.
The smoke subsides, Dean stands in the background very shaken, Famine is grinning from ear to ear and Sam is just floating on a cloud now. â€œNo,â€ Sam says, recovering from his little Jedi mind trick. Famineâ€™s okay with that. It Sam doesnâ€™t want them, heâ€™ll have them. Famine then opens his mouth wide, raises his hand up and the demons suddenly fly from the floor straight into his mouth, again like it was a Hoover. Itâ€™s so funny we see the â€œall you can eatâ€ neon sign while this happens. Both Sam and Dean watch in shock as all the smoke works its way into Famineâ€™s mouth. There, the old man feels better. So Sam, whoâ€™s eerily calm not to mention flying higher than a kite, takes a few steps closer and holds out his hand like heâ€™s gripping onto something.
Famine doesnâ€™t get it. â€œIâ€™m a horseman Sam. Your power doesnâ€™t work on me.â€ Dean looks down, and Iâ€™m speculating this is where he thinks about taking the knife and cutting off the ring finger. Sam has control of the situation though. â€œYouâ€™re right, but it will work on them.â€ Sam makes a fist and turns. Nooo, not the turned fist! Sam makes all sorts of strange faces and judging by his wincing and shaking is fighting something really hard. Suddenly Famine isnâ€™t smiling anymore for he can feel a bomb about to burst inside him. He tries to fight back, so Sam digs deeper. Smoke starts pouring out of Famine, so Sam is winning the fight.
Sam goes for extra, prompting the infamous nosebleed of overexertion from doing things with his mind. He goes at it a little longer and suddenly black smoke bursts everywhere out of Famine. He slumps over. Sam lets go and tries hard to catch his breath. Dean is so stunned he doesnâ€™t know what to do. Castiel (remember Castiel?) is on the ground, now coherent, and he has that same look of shock after Sam killed Alastair right in front of him in â€œOn The Head of A Pin.â€
Then thereâ€™s a close up of Deanâ€™s total disturbance gazing at a still breathless Sam. Oh no, itâ€™s the â€œmy brother is a freakâ€ gaze. Sam looks at Dean, now feeling ashamed over his actions. Probably because Famineâ€™s spell is broken. He can go back to his old baggage now. Itâ€™s kind of a carbon copy of the big scene in â€œItâ€™s The Great Pumpkin Sam Winchesterâ€ except with ten times more the intensity. Final shot goes to a crushed Dean, who has gotten his rude awakening. Wow. If that doesnâ€™t leave you in a total heaping mess, nothing will. I hope you enjoyed the most mind-blowing, deeply intense scene this show has ever done. Ben Edlund, you are a God.
