You know, when you were a kid, I’d come home from a hunt, and after what I’d seen, I’d be wrecked. And you, you’d come up to me and you, you’d put your hand on my shoulder and you’d look me in the eye and you’d say, “It’s okay, Dad”
Dean, I’m sorry. You shouldn’t have had to say that to me, I should have been saying that to you. You know, I put too much on your shoulders, I made you grow up too fast. You took care of Sammy, you took care of me. You did that, and you didn’t complain, not once. I just want you to know that I am so proud of you.
FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT YES, JOHN WINCHESTER HAD BEEN A CRAPPY FATHER TO DEAN AND SAM MOST OF THE TIME, BUT LET’S NOT FORGET THAT IN THE END AFTER HAVING REALIZED JUST HOW MUCH DEAN HAD GIVEN HIM AND HAD DONE FOR HIM, HE SOLD HIS SOUL FOR DEAN. HE SOLD HIS SOUL TO THE VERY DEMON WHO KILLED HIS WIFE—THE DEMON HE DEVOTED HIS ENTIRE LIFE TRYING TO HUNT DOWN.
YOU NEED TO AT LEAST GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR THAT. HE WASN’T ALL BAD.
