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 it's simply Sam has never had a motherly figure in his life. Dean, try as he might, still isn't a woman nor does he have a woman's soft voice, their touch. Which is why I think he responded to Jody and Ellen a lot more than he did with men on the show where as Dean, who adored John was always looking for that fatherly figure which he found in Bobby, and also I think it's because of the job. Interacting with mainly male hunters all his life, he might find it hard to interact with women when he's not in the role of the flirty bad boy.

Dean wants praise, and to be needed. Where as Sam wants to be nurtured. They fit very well, until Sam grew up and didn't want to be 'babied' anymore. Dean was lost, and Sam made some bad choices so Dean revoked his 'choices' card and their relationship kind of fell.

They had those roles for so long when things started to veer a different path it was very hard for either of them to handle it. Which you'd think, a family so used to change would have no problem with change but problems they did have. lol

Which as we see can sometimes be disastrous. Though I think Dean is learning that Sam DOES need him but Sam also needs him to let Sam grow up, make his own decisions/choices and learn from his own mistakes and his own faults/mistakes are not a reflection back on Dean.

That's what makes Sam dangerous I think. Is that no one really does understand him, half of the time I don't think Sam understands himself and on some level he knows this and is scared of what it might bring him.

Thanks for the friend! It was fun musing with you.
