You have FOOTNOTES! That is just made of awesome. And an epigraph! Hee!

All that aside, this is incredible. Your extremely eloquent and insightful analysis of this love story (truly, it is) will make sure I never watch this episode the same way again. I was particularly touched by the flicker of hope and disbelief on Dean's face as John and Sam are arguing about him - he's realizing that maybe he IS just as important to them. I had almost forgotten the demon's taunt, actually, which is stupid of me because of course that's going to sit in Dean's mind and wear at him. Although, I'm not sure how he could possibly take it seriously now, what with John giving up his SOUL for him. Anyway. The sheer bone-deep connection that Dean and Sam share in this episode, despite the disconnect, is an absolute revelation to witness. I love the direction your analysis has taken - full relationship, instead of just touches. Cause god knows sometimes these boys say more with a glance than most people do with a bearhug.

Wow. Thank you so, so much for this. I can't wait for more.

I didn't know whether or not to add footnotes, but I thought it would be better to have them than to potentially confuse people with obscure references.

Thank you so much. It is a love story, truly. (Sera Gamble put it perfectly, even if she says she was only teasing Kripke about it. ;)) And Dean, dude. It breaks my heart about him. All of those years, he apparently never received anything from John to indicate that he loved him as much as he loved Sam, and then to get this sort of answer with John's blood on Dean's hands, in his POV. That's gotta be extremely difficult to live with.

I'm not sure if I'm going to continue with this sort of analysis for the rest of S2. People indicated in that poll a while back that they wanted me to analyze anything physical that seemed significant, not just the touches, but at the same time, this is supposedly a catalogue of how they touch…? I'm not sure how to proceed.
