just enough to make us dangerous

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. :)

I think over the course of the show Sam has become more and more isolated, and I always thought that made sense, given that most of Sam's relationships either ended disastrous (Jess, Ruby) or were revealed to him as not real (Brady and all the others that were pointed out by Lucifer in Swan Song). Sam already saw himself as cursed back in Provenance and I think that feeling was only reinforced by his personal experiences these last couple of years.

I hope they don't use Cas to miraculously "fix" Sam this time.
Ugh, I am going to throw a fit if that happens.

Yes, I agree. He probably can't trust himself when it comes to making close friends. They've both lost so much and it must be safer to not get too close as he knows what usually happens.

It's curious to me that they mostly give Sam women to connect well with (Ruby, Madison, Sarah, Ava, Jody) and Dean men. Though I suppose Dean has Lisa, Cassie, Jo and now Charlie. Hmmm... not sure there's any real pattern there. Dean just seems to get on well with most people.

I think as Cas "fixed" Sam last time they won't do that again - but, I won't rest easy until we actually see that he can't.
