I am totally about to extrapolate from that tag, because this moment here. It is perfect.
We don’t know it at the time, but Castiel is having this conversation while holding off the Leviathans. The scariest motherfuckers on the planet. And he makes sure that Dean knows. Because Dean brushes it off. He’s like, “yeah, sure, do what you have to.”
But Cas won’t let him brush it off. He knows Dean. He knows that Dean doesn’t believe him in that moment. So he stops him. He tells him, “I mean it.” He damn well makes sure that Dean knows he’s going to make up for everything.
And Dean Winchester actually fucking gets it. He says, “Okay” and understands that Cas is telling him the truth. And that is such a gigantic leap for Dean. Because once you break Dean’s trust, it isn’t easy to get back. Not even for his family. But this right here? This is Dean saying more than “Okay, I get that you’re serious.”
This is Dean saying, “Okay, I’ll let you make up for it.”
This ship, you guys.
