when they keep their love a mystery, it lets the romance become their private memory
The last couple of episodes have shown just how much faith the writers have in Jensen’s acting (or it’s proof that anything the writers write for Dean/Jensen could not be half as good as what Dean/Jensen could give us with just his facial expressions, body language, and eyes). We’ve had entire scenes of Dean conveying so much with no words at all.
He doesn’t fight back. He doesn’t try to yank his arm free. No, he almost holds completely still, when Cas manhandles him and lets him uncover his arm, see the mark, see him. And what he has become. And that expression on his face. It’s almost indecipharable, because there are so many layers. There’s annoyance and anger and defeat, but also something like understanding and sadness. Something that says “Yes, I know… it might have been stupid”, but that’s what I derserve. That deep breath he takes before he opens his eyes again. Eyes that shift so fast from showing deep desperation and wanting to be saved to sadness to completely empty, hardened, ~dead. He’s so tired, so worn down. He just wants it all to be over. A means to an end. Or should we say a means to his end…
I think he also has a fear of confetti. I mean look at his face. He was obviously traumatized by it at some point. Like damn. He’s more traumatized by this than having Lucifer pop into his body for a while.
