Supernatural > Supernatural Set Interview: Jared Padalecki on Sam and Dean's Strained Reunion > Comments Page 2
Some are missing the point. At least Dean TRIED to find Sam when he was in the Cage. Sam didn't even bother trying to find Dean after he disappeared. Not even a little bit. He just didn't care his brother was gone. Thats what shocked me. Dean had every right to feel angry and hurt. Sam was as cold as a block of ice. The Sam in the opening ep actually reminded me of Souless Sam.
I also don't understand the Sam haters. When Same went to Hell, Dean knew he was in the cage. Dean took his year off and, while he said he looked for Sam, he still stayed with Lisa and Ben and there was no indication that he wasn't going to continue with that existence - did he call Bobby to get his help in getting Sam out of Hell, for example. No, he moved on with Lisa and Ben. And even after Sam and the Campbells showed up, he decided not to continue hunting and went back to Lisa and Ben until Sam pulled him back in with the monster baby.
Sam had no idea where Dean even was and no one to help him or to rely on other than himself. And, if he thought that Dean got pulled into purgatory, Sam already knows the consequences of trying to open that door again.
So why all the hate. Dean lived his own life away from hunting so why shouldn't Sam try?
Lol its ok lord of the night, Sam won't be too hurt by the remarks here.
I don't hate Sam. Quite the opposite. Supernatural is a fantastic series, entertaining, witty, heart breaking, funny, etc. Some great writing and characters to root for.
Sam has always been "flawed". Sam has also always been the one who "it always had to be", as he - and we - were told, and therein lies the rub for some of us.
And yes. Dean did give up looking for Sam, but he promised Sam he would, so no matter how hard it was, he at least tried to do just that.
It is great writing AND acting that pulls off believably flawed characters, yet still makes them draw the viewer in. Humans don't like to be reminded of our weaknesses and yet, if done well, we are enthralled by the foibles of a charcter such as Sam OR Dean, as they are both heart breakingly broken, yet stronger and more full of "heart" than we could ever be.
Hence the eternal fascination/anger/frustration we present after viewing a new e
Jared's take on Sam makes me cringe. It's almost like he never understood the brother's bond all these years.
I really do not get all the Sam hatred. He wants a bloody normal life, why is that worth so much hate?
After so many years of hunting monsters. After 3 separate apocalypses that he has helped avert. After watching literally everybody he cares about die or vanish, why is it so hard to believe that Sam is burnt out?
And yeah he gave up on looking for Dean, and guess what. Dean did the same freaking thing when Sam was in the pit. He looked for a while but eventually accepted there was nothing he could do and settled into a normal life. Sam just skipped the pointless searching and found himself a nice life. And now that Dean is back to drag him into the life again and remind him that they don't get to have normal lives, is it any surprise that he isn't foaming at the mouth to hunt or overjoyed to see his brother again?
It's because he knows what Dean coming back means. He will either be sucked back into hunting, or he will have to abandon his brother face to face. Neither of which
Already only semi-likable, the character of Sam this season is barely watchable. And I love this show!
Ackles' Dean has been the backbone of Supernatural from the start, and although both actors have grown, Ackles started with more acting chops than Padaleski has yet to obtain, although he has really improved over the years. So in that respect, I guess I understand the lean toward his blase 'tude. Easier.
Anyway. Sam's "I've moved on" (yet again...) bent is tired, and I was really hoping for at least a bit ... more for the character this season. Dean is over-involved, hung up for sure, but come on, Sam writers. I've seen plants with more emotion, and prima donna divas with less "It's all about me" - again crap.
Perhaps Dean will sort of adopt the new kid, Kevin, and let Sam go live with his dog in his cabin in Hermit Hill.
Lol in fact, at this point, I'm rooting for that to happen.
Wow. I mean, really...just wow. So it's not mature to want to save people's lives? It's not mature to try and save your brother? Dean has 'earned' Sam's help so Sam will graciously agree to humor him this one time before leaving him again?
You know what I just can't. I want to believe there are more, better reasons for Sam not looking for Dean but this just pisses me off.
