"Jared has grown up the most. He was 22 when he started the show. Now he’s in his 30s, he’s got two children, he’s married, he’s just a different person. It’s been cool to be a part of that and sit and watch him become a man. I like to think I helped him along the way with advice and stuff, but I’m very proud of the man he’s become." - Jensen Ackles (x)
I just love that Sam does stuff cause it needs to be done. Cause it’s the right thing. He doesn’t do it to be a hero, and he doesn’t really think he is one. He doesn’t do it to impress anyone because he thinks he’s literally the scum of the earth. He does it because he genuinely wants to help and genuinely wants to respect what people would want (what Dean told him before he “died”, not what Dean-who-doesn’t-even-care-about-the-car wants, okay, don’t twist this).
I’m just so impressed with his ability to walk into a situation, handle all the crap coming at him from people who don’t understand him and don’t want to and only want to hurt him, say his piece, and just let that be enough. He doesn’t demand reactions because, hell, he probably won’t get them. He’s just going to do what he needs to do and be okay with that much.
Jared Padalecki talking about THE Scene from Soul Survivor
Sam & Dean’s relationship
There’s a quote, ‘You hurt most the ones you love’,” Padalecki said. “And Sam has said the same things to Dean where he said I wouldn’t have gone after you, he’s said a lot of things to try and needle Dean. And we can’t forget that Dean’s a demon and Dean’s saying what he needs to say to piss Sam off because he wants to find a chink in the armor. It’s like when you’re playing tennis or chess with somebody. You get in their head so you can beat them. You psyche them out. And that’s what demons do. Demon Dean also knows how to get to Sam. But I think there’s some truth in it too. And Sam knows it. But Dean’s truth, although it’s parallel to Sam’s truth, it’s not the same. And I think Sam’s smart enough to figure that out.” Padalecki also assured us that the brothers could reconcile those two truths: “It’s going be difficult and it’s going take some time. But they certainly can.
When we asked Padalecki whether it’s time for Sam to finally be able to save Dean when he hasn’t been able to do so in the past…, Padalecki said “It is and it’s about damn time!”
Maybe, you are not, as good as you think you are. [10.02]

#i love the way demon!dean fights though#i mean dean was always effeicient about it#minimal movement#conserving energy#you can practically hear all the lessons john has drilled into him#how to get the best result with minimal movement#how to last longer and fight better when your opponent is bigger and stonger nd inhuman#but demon!dean doesn’t seem to give a fuck#because he IS the bigger and stonger one now#he’s so much looser#casual#almost flamboyant about it#this is someone who relishes the skills he has#a predator that plays with his food because he can#and it’s fucking beautiful#terrifying#but beautiful (via honeysweetsam)
I’M SO ANGRY
SO SO ANGRY
IF THIS IS TRUE AND THEY’RE NOT GONNA TALK ABOUT IT AND SAM WILL LEGIT GET NO FUCKING JUSTICE
THEN I AM DONE I AM SO FUCKING DONE…
Carver mentioned that the brothers would very much be dealing with their issues going forward and that their individual and collective journeys would be “very personal from here on out” and it will “become more clear where [they’re] at at the end of [episode 10.03].” Padalecki hinted that “Sam protects himself to protect others. I think Sam is finally learning and understanding something, that in order to truly help others he has to give and give freely which I think Sam can do like nobody else.” In addition, Carver said that “[the brothers] are coming to an understanding or conclusion or they realize there has to be another way to deal with what this [situation], and they will.” And have no fear, Supernatural fans, because when asked if the Winchesters would learn to be brothers again and get back to the good side of the family business (you know, hunting people and saving things), Carver responded with a “yes!”
