This was such a fleeting moment, only 8 frames in total, but it was so very significant in my eyes. For a brief moment, Dean lets his guard down, and they connect. He looks in Cas’ eyes and he forgets about all the bullshit on his shoulders, for one perfect second, the only person in the world aside from himself is his best friend, and he is sitting across from him, and he is so beautiful.
#all the awards to jensen ackles #because really #you can literally see what’s going on in dean’s mind #like at first he can’t believe it #he calls his name #twice #because he can’t believe he’s actually gone #maybe he’s hoping it’s like with pamela #cas burnt her eyes out but she was still alive #but then #man #then you see him almost nodding #because of course kevin is dead #and of course dean thinks it’s his fault #kevin /trusted/ him #and this what happens when people trust him, right? #’i guess that’s what i do #i let down the people i love’
#you know what’s more? #usually he screams and yells out their names #he shakes them #he runs around trying to find a solution #he’s lost so many friends and family over the years #but now it’s three at once #one is keeping his distance #the other is gone #and the third is dead #you can literally see how empty his eyes are #he’s exhausted and broken #dean is so broken he can barely cry at first #he just hopes one last time that he can do something #he says kevin’s name twice because he’s always tried at least something #but obviously nothing happens #and then he just bows his head down acknowledging the truth and cries silently #all his energy is drained and whatever was left of his happiness is just shattered #also chances are he’s remembering the promise he made kevin #that he would never let anything happen to him
i really wanna see this happen
