"Famously, there's not really anywhere to go after nihilism. It's not progressing toward anything, it's a statement of outrage, however brilliant.” ― Alan Moore


THEN


What an episode! It spawned loads of meme's, gifs, screenshots and most importantly to my articles, pretty awesome fan videos! It inspired me to make this article as soon as possible, not only for the episode but also for the Supernatural holidays connected with it. Yesterday, 1.23.2019, the world celebrated "National Pie Day" and today, 1.24.2019, is Dean Winchester's birthday. How cool is that? His favorite food first and his special day next.

Happy birthday Dean Winchester! On this day, year of our Lord 2019, Dean is keeping Michael trapped in a cage inside his (Dean's) mind. He has learned something pretty dire from Death that will solve the situation but Michael is not making it easy with all that yelling and hitting on the door. Our birthday boy is also having some post traumatic stress issues after Michael's possession. So, is this a good day for Dean? In this episode, we find out that he thrives on trauma; it keeps him going.

But this should be a happy day so I want to write about the bar that Dean had in the episode. I really loved it and the fact Sam and Castiel were present and still hunting in this scenario. It is funny that when Gadreel possessed Sam he was also hunting a ghoul (a case involving strippers). I wonder if the hunt similarity is also an Easter egg? More on those later. Dean fit well behind a bar and he totally owned this life. That made me hope for a perfect birthday scenario someday....

Sam and Castiel had blindfolded Dean, and they were now guiding him forward. Sam had this surprise in mind for a long time and finally they did it. They guided Dean through the door and Sam snatched the cloth off Dean's eyes. Dean focused on the bright light and then everyone that was dear to the boys yelled "Happy Birthday!" Mary, Jack and Bobby were there, among others. Sam put the deed to the bar in Dean's hands then he and Castiel also said happy birthday.
Dean: What is this?
Sam: Something we all wanted to give you. It's from the people here and people we once saved. I remembered how you enjoyed the bar in your dream. I know we are hunting but I think we can work it out that you work and own a bar - with some extra help and Jack. 
Dean: You mean...
Sam: It is yours, Dean. Congratulations.

And they would work it out. Sometimes Dean would be their FBI, CIA guy from the bar and sometimes Jack and their hired old man bartender would take the lead. Sam would also do research in the bar so that he could also get out of the bunker. They also would meet some great new friends and hunters as the reputation of the bar grows.





Dean's dream bar, "Rocky's Bar" contains many Easter eggs.


The first Easter egg is that Pamela met Dean in heaven's bar with Ash. I think that is the main reason she is also in this bar. Also, she always had some wise words and spunk. Dean felt at home at the Roadhouse. Jo was also a waiter in bars.

Other Easter Eggs include the name of the bar, the moose head hanging on the wall, the stuffed squirrel, the carving on the bar, the wooden monkey, the Impala tribute and many other things that are dear to Dean. Look for Nightsky's Visual Review and Easter Egg Hunt, coming in a few days!



For Dean's birthday, here are his 10 best quotes, in my opinion. Who knows the episodes where they were said?


1. “Saving people, hunting things, the family business.”
2. “Driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cakehole.” 
3. “You're the same thing, only bigger. The same brand of cockroach I've been squashing my whole life. An ugly, evil, belly-to-the-ground supernatural piece of crap. The only difference between them and you is the size of your ego.”
4. “If you fudging touch me again, I’ll fudging kill you!”
5. “That's crap. You always have a choice. You can either roll over and die or you can keep fighting, no matter what.”
6. “As long as I’m around, nothing bad is gonna happen to you.” 
7. “Demons, I get...But people are crazy.” 
8. “A wise man once told me, 'family don't end in blood.' But it doesn't start there either. Family cares about you, not what you can do for them family's there; for the good, bad, all of it. They got your back, even when it hurts. That's family. That sound like your mother?
9. “Well, that's great, because without your power, you're basically just a baby in a trenchcoat.”
10. “Fight the fairies! You fight those fairies!”

Quotes

Michael: Yes, uh, put a chair against the door. That'll help. Nothing's changed. Either my monsters get here or I break these chains. But tonight everybody dies. And, Sam? The last thing you'll see is this pretty smile as I rip you apart.
Sam: Dean thrives on trauma. I mean, he's had to his whole life, right? It keeps him alert, keeps him ready, but if I wanted to distract Dean, I-I I'd give him something he's never had before.Castiel: Contentment.Sam: Exactly. So maybe, instead of looking through his bad memories, maybe let's, uh maybe let's look through his good memories.
Michael: Well, this is fun.Dean: Get out of my head.Michael: You don't mean that, Dean, not really. You may lie to them, but, deep down, I know you. I am you. You only tolerate the angel because you think you owe him, because he 'gripped you tight and raised you from Perdition.' Or whatever. But since then, what has he done? Only made mistakes, one after the other. And, Sam -- oh, Sam You know, Dean was his happiest when you quit hunting, leaving him with your dad, just the two of them. See, deep down, he knows that you will always abandon him, again and again.Dean: Shut up!Michael: You don't need them. You don't even like them. They're not your family -- they're your responsibilities. They're a weight around your neck. And deep down, you wanted -- you were desperate to get away from them. And that is why you said yes.
