Baby, maybe someday.
I think what I love most about this progression is that Sam takes advantage of Dean’s reactions to Cas because he knows he acts different with him, so even with the Mark of Cain, he can still see Dean there when Cas makes him talk, or smile, or react to what’s going on with him.
There’s also this feeling of support, because Sam can’t do it alone anymore. Dean is more bitter and it’s harder to reason with him, even more than usual, so it’s good to see how Cas can break that tense ambience, even if it’s just for a little while.
I keep staring at the bottom two gifs in this post, too. I think Sam’s known for a while that Dean cares about Cas more than as a friend or a brother, that Dean loves Cas and he doesn’t know what to do with that feeling. He’s known since before Holy Terror and Dean and Cas’ casual flirting. He’s known since before “If he’s so sketchy, why were you praying to him?” and “Because it’s Cas.” He’s known since before they found out Cas wanted to crack open Purgatory and it broke Dean into a million pieces.
But I think it was this episode that made Sam realize that Cas cares just as much as Dean. He saw Cas stare at Dean as he left them on the bridge and he worked with Cas in the bunker while Dean was off getting the Mark of Cain, but he didn’t know that Cas felt this. That Cas worried about Dean like Dean worries about Cas. That Cas was still trying to save Dean from the worst of the world. That Cas doesn’t just care about Dean’s work; he cares about how Dean feels.
After this episode, he knows that it’s not just his brother that wants them to be together; Cas wants it, too. He’s seen Dean fret and worry and cry over Cas, and now, he’s also seen him smile and flirt with Cas, like Cas lights up his whole world. And now he sees that maybe Cas is the same way. He sees that they’re each other’s guiding lights, even if they don’t think the other feels the same way.
