REVEAL/TWIST? Cas won’t let anyone hurt his family again.

If they aren’t trying to save each other, fighting against the wishes of the other – you know, to do what they think is best to save the other in spite of the other’s wishes – or being saved by each other then the brothers are still focusing on their family in one way or another in episode fourteen. Or someone in the “doesn’t end with blood” extended realm of Winchester is, whatever those consequences might be. And really, don’t those moments make us love the show all the more? Which is your top family moment? What is your most frustrating know-why-they’re-doing-it-but-don’t-agree moments? I thought Cas was pretty bad ass in slaying Donatello this season – and his speech to the brothers. Agree?

Reflect, reminisce and share below!
