On Supernatural, the brothers Winchester face a short separation from the end of Season 5 and the beginning of Season 6. Dean lives with a woman and is raising a child, and Sam is still hunting. The two brothers re-unite again and immediately get down to their old demon fighting tricks.
I’ve had separations from my siblings for various reasons many times- but I think the longest was from 2 of my brothers, C and T. I didn’t see either of them for 10+ years from when I was 2 until just after I turned 12, I believe, and I’m not going to go into the how or why that happened- but I will tell you- while wonderful that reunion was also kind of strange- I mean, here were these two grown men (I’m the youngest by far in my family) and they were my brothers- but I knew nothing about them! I was super nervous, and I’m sure they were too. I know that they gave me a “Heart” album as a present when they arrived at our house for dinner and I thought they were both just the coolest.people.ever. Of course, as time wore on, instead of me viewing them as these two super-human, amazing, magnificent people, I started to know them, and love them as brothers, and realize, that they were just as regular as could be.
Not saying they aren’t awesome in their own right, because they are, but after the newness of the relationship was over, and the sibling relationship started to form as much as it was able (its hard to be brother/sister to someone 18 years your senior when you’ve not known them much?!) I am sure that were there demons to be fought, my brothers would have been there battling those demons to protect their sister – just as Dean and Sam would.
The bond of siblings is amazing- truly amazing. I’ve been truly blessed by each of my siblings in my life, and while they are not all siblings in the physical sense that we share any genes, they are siblings in my heart. Always will be.
Although, it would be kind of cool if ONE of us was an awesome demon fighter like Sam. Or Dean. Or both. I mean, come on. They are awesome!
