On Dean Winchester

Dean is a good guy who is approaching his breaking point pretty fast.

From what I read, a lot of people are complaining that he should have known it was not Sam but rather Gary in Sam's body. Well, in his defense, they rolled into town and were spotted by Gary 36 hours earlier, the same night, Sam got swapped out of his body; they dispatched a D-degree ghost with a simple salt and burn, then went to the bar, then he knew for sure it was not Sam. That was 24 hours, not too bad, considering they did a job and Sam looked like Sam all the time.

The fact that Dean did not recognize Sam a lot sooner is actually alarming as far as his mental state is concerned. He seems despondent, not paying much attention, and is getting so tired of it all. Yet he goes on, as best as he can. Oh, I worry about him, so much.

They, the both of them, need a friend, outside of their tightly knitted circle. They need someone to badmoth their brothers, vent it all out, and come back seeing the said brother, and feeling guilty for badmothing him. That is how long-term relationship works.

I also thought Dean recognized him pretty quickly. He was suspicious sooner than that, but it wasn't a terribly long time. I think both boys could have used a little actual therapy back at the institute... :(

I usually do not find much fault with how the Show deals with the brothers, except that I think Sam's stroy line is a bit underdeveloped. They always got me pretty worried. The plot, on the other hand, is another story. But, Dean not realizing it is not Sam is not one of them plot holes.

I donot know how much good therapy would do them though, some things just cannot be talked out. But then again, I believe in venting feelings rather than talking about it.
