I’m sure if you’re a long-time fan of Supernatural or Destiel, you remember the “I need you”, scene starring Castiel and Dean Winchester (S08 E17) https://youtu.be/rT0ve1tvSM0
the one that took Cas about a thousand tries to do successfully? And even then, when the time came, he couldn’t do it. He couldn’t do that to Dean, the person he cared so much for. He knew it was wrong and we did too.
The thing that really made Castiel question his (unwilling) decisions though, was when Dean said the oh-so-famous words, “We’re family.” As you can tell, Cas was struggling (with himself and Naomi) in this scene.
It was considered that Dean say, “I love you,” instead of, “We’re family,” but it was ‘thrown out’ because it was (in the words of someone I admire), “Just… too gay, I guess.” ~ AreTheyGay.
I know, I know, this is old news but, just in case any of you Destiel fans haven’t heard, there you go.
