Thinky thougts
I wonder if it's deliberate that Sam doesn't haven't any male friends.

I mean, I figure he had good friends at college (we know there was Zach and Brady), but we've never seen him with a male "buddy" like we have Dean. We see Dean bonding with other males - Bobby, Gordon, Frank, Cas, Garth, Benny and even John, but Sam is seen as either butting heads with them or being downright enemies of them (Lucifer, Walt, Roy, Gordon, Kubrick, Greedy).

I know that Sam was close to Bobby but not in the same way that Dean was. Same with Garth and Cas. Both Garth and Cas attached themselves to Dean first, then got to know Sam. I figure they are as close to "friends" as Sam has in the show, but they're not just his friends.

I wonder if that's because Dean fulfils that role completely? Maybe Sam doesn't need anyone else (whereas Dean possibly does?).

I'm sure not if this is because there's never been a story line that has allowed Sam to develop a male friendship or because they have deliberately made this part of Sam's character (like his disastrous relationships with women).

It's not a complaint - just an observation.

Hmmm. *hugs* Sam. Maybe books are his other companion.

This is what happens when I enjoy a day off (yay back to 4 days a week!) and get my hair done. :)



I hope they don't use Cas to miraculously "fix" Sam this time. Surely the effects of these trials can't be fixed with a mere touch to the head (I mean, they could if they wanted them to be, but I hope they can't).

That is all. :)

Sam doesn't really open up to others. He is not the having buddies type to me, but rather with himself, his thoughts and observations of life. I think it really fits his overall character and knits in nicely with the demon blood curse that made him withdraw even further from friending easily.

But wait, no, the real reason, of course, is that he is sparing himself for you. Your icon gave it away.. *g* ;)

It would be disappointing if they make Cas come in whenever they get stuck with the story telling to just save the day. I hope they keep him busy with his own issues so that he adds to the story rather than be a quick solution at hand.

Day off and getting your hair done sounds great!
Have a hug as well! *squiiidge* :D

Oh, and I forgot to say I got my friend Olly in England interested in the show by constantly saying stuff like:"Can't talk now, must watch my fav show" and generally pointing out how good it is. So he borrowed the DVDs from his friend, (who is also a fan) and started watching. Right from the start. S1E1. His comment:"Brilliant!" He is hooked now... :D

Oh YAY! New fan! And a guy! (I don;t know why, but I'm always interested to know when guys get hooked on the show. I suppose because I think they are a rare breed...:DD)

There are times I wish I was discovering it for the first time. All those episodes to watch!!! :))

Yes - Sam is indeed more introspective and that part of his nature has developed over the seasons. I think he has good reason to be like that, after everything he has been through.

(hee! Love my icon....;D)

I will be very disappointing if they use Cas to solve their problems. I know they keep finding ways for him not to be able to, but with Dean praying to him it makes me wonder if he will come to the rescue. I suppose I hope not purely to allow the boys to have to find other solutions. It will also be better for Cas to have his own issues (which seems to be the way they are going).

Day off = YAY! :))

*hugs* ya back sweetie!
