Would love some input from my dash on this snippet from Jensen’s interview because everything about Carver’s interview was put into a great perspective and balanced out nicely with Jared’s interview… but this shit.
I’m exhausted of this being the pattern —that no matter WHAT stupid bullshit Dean pulls, as assbackwards or hypocritical as it may be, Sam is still the one painted in a more negative light— and while it’s not surprising or OOC for this to once again be the pattern they fall in to, I was hoping for change?????
~~[Like was all the shit from last season building up to nothing? To not breaking us free of the awful abusive cycle we’ve been in for years? What was the point of how awful things got if literally we are going to fall back into Dean being shitty, Sam being rightfully upset, Dean being mad that Sam is upset, Sam apologizes for being upset and they move on without Dean apologizing for shittiness, Sam tries to prove himself to Dean, it’s never good enough, aaaaaand repeat. Was the darkness and the fighting NOT to bring us out of that deep pit of a valley to a much higher place afterward, with lessons learned and self discovery??? IS IT ACTUALLY TRUE THAT EVEN TURNING INTO A DEMON BECAUSE OF HIS DUMB FUCKING DECISIONS WON’T SHOW DEAN HOW WRETCHED HE IS????
Why do I want to circle this drain again? It was painful and unfair the first 30 times we did this to Sam. Can I have no nice things?]~~
I mean… I’m trying to hold out and wait and see how things go before I call it problematic, but … I mean… …. …. … .. not sure what to think here.
If that’s what they want to do with Dean I’m actually more upset for Dean’s character than Sam’s?? Because what a completely useless character if he is literally incapable of owning and learning from his CATASTROPHIC mistakes, omg. It’s a huge disservice to him.
There were quotes in Carver’s interview that contradict this POV from Jensen and the interviewer, though:
“That’s the real conflict that’s within [Dean] right now when he’s a demon. Because it is him. He’s not unaware of what he’s doing.”
So like… the interviewer says "So it might be more about what Sam did than what Dean did, because he didn’t have control of himself?” and Jensen nods, but that isn’t true according to Carver.
So maybe Jensen hasn’t read all the scripts yet and doesn’t really know exactly where things are going yet, or maybe Carver feels this way about where it’s going but it doesn’t come through the scripts? OR maybe Jensen is just… nodding so the interview will be over faster
My immediate feeling was the Jensen didn’t really know, I doubt they’ve read that far ahead in the scripts yet, I think they are usually only an episode or two ahead of what’s being filmed (Jared said he hadn’t read the script for Ep5 yet and he seems to usually be ahead of Jensen in script reading), so yeah I felt he was mostly nodding to end the interview faster because he didn’t really have an answer. Also maybe he just have based that response on previous Dean behaviour, because, let’s face it as much, as I’d want to punch a wall if that happened, it really wouldn’t be all that much out of character.
I’m going to put the next bit behind a cut because it went from somewhat reassuring up there ^ to bitter (about a slightly different, I guess, topic) whoops! So you know, feel free to ignore this bit!
I hated the I am proud of us.As far as I am concerned that line should not have come from Dean.
