We are getting interviews with Jensen on Dean and the Mark of Cain and his relationship with Sam
Zap2it got to pick Ackles’ brain about how Sam and Dean’s fight could get worse before it gets better (if it even gets better at all), plus the side effects of Dean’s Mark of Cain, his shocking new relationship with Crowley and distance from Castiel.
Zap2it: I’m extremely worried about Dean right now. He didn’t stop to listen to Cain’s warnings about how receiving the Mark might affect him, and he’s been displaying some shockingly good hunting abilities recently. How will that continue to affect him? It’s not going to be good, right?
Jensen Ackles: It’s definitely messing with his inner moral compass, so to speak. We just saw recently that Dean, instead of sparing a human life, he killed a guy without so much as a thought. I think that plays into what he is going through inside: “If they’re bad, they’ve got to go. I don’t have time to weigh the pros and cons and deliberate over what’s right and wrong. This guy was bad, so he’s got to go.” That’s a far cry from where we’ve seen Dean in the past. He’s always been a shoot first, ask questions later [guy], but that was with monsters, which is his line of work.
Jensen also spoke with EW
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This season has so much going on, with bigger stuff in heaven and hell, and somehow Sam and Dean still finding time to work smaller cases. From here on out, is it still this mix of heaven and hell sprinkled with smaller cases, or are we getting back to the bigger dilemmas and dropping the episodic stuff?
JENSEN ACKLES: As we start to near the end of the season, all of the big storylines start to culminate and start to intertwine a little bit more. The climax is building, so to speak. So yes, we are going to start to get back into those storylines. They are going to start lining up with one another, so the heaven and hell is going to directly affect whatever happens with Abaddon, the First Blade obviously being a key to unlock that problem, and then it will snowball, domino effect – however you want to put it – it’s all going to start to come to a head here pretty soon.
