I hope Sam takes action to save Dean soon, like Dean did in putting Sam in the panic room to clean out the Demon blood.
…How exactly can Sam ‘take action to save Dean’ beyond what he’s already doing? He asks Dean about his feelings. He invites Dean on hunts to get him away…
This is Supernatural, anything is possible. And it’s not like he shouldn’t try, right? Cause despite his words, Sam’s actions prove he still cares. And Dean was desperate when he did that to fight the demon blood. And despite what people think about it, was it all Dean could do because Sam couldn’t fight himself. It’s not like what has to be done to save them each and every time doen’t leave a mark that sticks with them. Becides, all we fans can do is hope. What’s wrong with that? :)
I’m just not sure what he should try. Or why people think his words don’t prove he still cares. (“Hey, you okay?” “Just checking in.”)
Dean wasn’t desperate to save Sam. Remember him saying, “At least he dies human”? He didn’t care if Sam died as long as he died on Dean’s terms. At that point, Sam had neither hurt nor risked anybody but himself. He already had demon blood in him - it couldn’t be cleaned out because it is part of him. He was literally saving lives, including Dean’s, and Dean decided he needed to be ‘saved’ from that. I’m still not entirely sure why we were supposed to side with Dean on that one except “demons are bad”.
(Sorry. I have a lot of problems with how that detox was run, from strapping a seizing person down on his back to leaving him alone to not taking him food or water to not cleaning him up for several days while he laid in his own filth, and I’m not even touching how Sam had to be tricked into it in the first place. That detox was not done with Sam’s health or safety in mind.)
The second Sam finds a way to deal with the Mark, he’s going to go to Dean with it. And if Dean refuses the treatment, Sam’s not going to force it on him. This entire season has been about how violation, even to save someone’s life, is wrong. Sam’s not going to force Dean to do something he doesn’t want to do, even if he personally thinks it would be in Dean’s best interests.
I hope the MoC gets resolved soon, too. But it’s not on Sam to clean up Dean’s messes, just like it’s not on Dean to clean up Sam’s messes. If they choose to help each other, fantastic, that’s what brothers do. But if they choose not to help each other, that’s okay too, because they’re individuals.
what you said on “He didn’t care if Sam died as long as he died on Dean’s terms.” and “That detox was not done with Sam’s health or safety in mind” I don’t agree with you at all (and I’m not gonna go into it cause I’ll get pissed), but I do agree on the main point of how violation is wrong. That’s why I hope Sam will do something, and that doesn’t mean he will violate Dean because HE OF ALL PEOPLE WOULDN’T DO THAT, so Sam doing something, or anything he would try would be thought out cause he knows how it goes. And we can hope and hope, because we love them brothers.
