Winchester Brothers: Sam versus Dean

Posted by MAaP on October 21, 2008

Season 4 of hit TV series Supernatural definitely made a hell of a comeback to the screen… or a heaven of a comeback, it would seem. Spoiler Warning: God and His angels intervene. Ha! The series gets more and more exciting with each episode.

Let’s get to the point of this post then. Dean died and was resurrected by God through an angel. That would put him on the side of good. Well, Dean was always on the side of good when it comes to hunting and vanquishing demons. Sam, too, of course. But we all know that the story gets complicated when it comes to Sam, all because of the demon blood that the yellow-eyed demon Azazel made him drink.

As season 4 progresses, we can’t help but think: Sam has demon blood and may be on the path of the dark side, while Dean becomes a sort of hitman for God. Hmm.. it kind of gives us an idea of a conflict between brothers. Think about it. If Sam eventually gets engulfed with the demonic powers that Azazel gave him, Dean will really have to fight, and maybe kill, his younger brother.

Sam Winchester is the softer one of the two brothers. He is more rational, more innocent, and more sensible. He’s also the rebellious one when it comes to hunting, choosing the path of a university and a normal life instead of the supernatural. Well, he does have the brains and the charms to be a normal popular student in school so living a normal life would be easy for him.

Sadly, his fate is a cruel one. He was chosen by Azazel to command his demon army, and given supernatural powers. With demon blood in him, and a lot of conspiring demons and monsters around them, what choice does he have?

He recently just made a choice never to use his demonic powers again, for fear that he might turn evil at the end. Let’s just hope he keeps this promise. Because a fight between the brothers will definitely happen if he goes over to hell’s side.

Ironic things happen to Dean Winchester. For one, he never believed in God or angels.. yet he was pulled from hell by one as willed by the Supreme Being. He has no intention of ever harming his brother but circumstances may lead him to do it.

That’s one thing that differs Dean from Sam. Sam is serious about what they do but Dean takes it one at a time with many a sarcasm on his tongue. Despite his cute cocky attitude, though, he’ll still get the job done. He’s never been one to back down from demons and monsters even if they seem stronger than him and Sam.

But what if his opponent is Sam? When Sam turns to the demonic side, Dean will be forced to fight him for the sake of goodness and heaven. Dean has the blessings the upper beings, but this is his kid brother we’re talking about.

Who Wins? In the end, good will prevail. It has to.. doesn’t it? When we think about it, there’s still the possibility that Sam goes back to good, after all. Dean isn’t the only one with the strong urge to be connected with his brother. Both brothers will always side with each other in the end. I guess we can say then that both of them will win.. and the real challenge of this post is whether or not they will side with good or evil. Will good or evil win in the end?

    I agree with your conlusion.
    I believe that the brothers will fight side by side, they always have.
    No matter what they go through to get there, they will stay toghether. The devotion they show to each other from day one, is something the creators of the show built and I doubt they will shutter it. The fan base of this show also is in favor of the brothers sticking toghether and we know the creators pay attention to the fans. In overall, even if you look at it as one of us, you will never kill your brother even if he was the devil himself and this show has hinted strongly that Dean for one would never let this happen… As for Sam he too tried everything to keep Dean alive and remember we still don’t have his 4 month backstory. The agony we all have to whether the boys will be devided will be erased if we go back and see Dean die for Sam and Sam promise he will get him out no matter what happens to him.
    That kind of brotherly love can’t be broken by anything!!

    I agree with you on this one, I think this season is just slowly inching toward a huge fight between the two brothers, one that will really make the fans buzz! I’m kind of hoping they leave us with a cliff hanger on the issue, maybe both brothers severly injured? But in the end, the fight will only bring them closer together, because the relationship is on the fringe right now, almost torn and broken, it is as if they need a huge blow out to come back together. And when they reunite on the same side, they will be stronger then ever. As Kripke has always said, it’s about family, and no matter what happens, the creator is going to keep that original idea in place, it’s just what happens in the mean time that will be very interesting…

    if it came down to fight i believe Dean would prevail!

    dean may not like it but he will do what is right – of course he would do all he can to try and save Sam before killing him as a last resort. dean may be cocky and arrogant but he loves his brother and if he had to – he would kill him just to save him from become the embodiment of evil – everything Sam fears.
