Why would the camera zoom in like this on Cas, slowly drift up his body in a very “check this hot stuff out” way, only to immediately turn the camera view onto Dean, where we witness he not only, very blatantly, checks Cas out, but even shifts uncomfortably as if he is trying to hide a boner…?
I’ll tell you why. The camera guys don’t do this just cause they feel like it. This kind of stuff is planned out angle to angle. Almost every camera angle, every close up, the way you view everything has a point and reason to it and they do this on purpose. They want us to notice this scene where Dean is recognizably looking at Cas with a look of interest. This tiny scene is meaningful. And it bothers me that so many brush things like this off and make Destiel shippers out to be crazy fans who are crazed to the point of grasping to see parallels in everything.
Because we’re not crazy. We’re invested in a love story between two amazing characters who’ve been through so much together. And If you add up all of these little moments, plus the many parallels that have been placed meticulously into season 8, even when Cas isn’t present in every episode, it is clear we are leading up to something or at least makes it SEEM like we are. And if we’re not, if we never do, I will be severely disappointed in the producers’ and writers’ propensity to queer-bait their audience, because stuff like this is clearly noticeable and obvious to the eye. And to use these subtleties to attract more LGBT viewers, with no ACTUAL intent on telling a love story for this audience, is wrong. And quite unfair.
Also just another little something to point out.
This is the first time since season 6 that Cas has just been, well, “Cas”. For most of season 7, he was presumed dead. And when Dean happened upon Emmanuel married and settled down with a wife (whose features greatly resembled Dean’s btw), Cas was in regular pants and a sweater. It wasn’t his Cas he had found. And then when Cas became “Crazy Cas” he was in a patient’s outfit, which he continued wearing throughout purgatory….So when you think about it…
Dean hasn’t seen his Cas in at least two years.
So here comes Cas out of the bathroom and Dean is probably having flashbacks of the old Cas, his Cas. The first Cas that barged through those barn doors, strutting in like some BAMF with so much power radiating off him that sparks were flying everywhere.
And the look on Dean’s face here says it all.
DAYUM, muh man is HOTTT.
And we aren´t even getting on the way Jensen does his acting!, becaue let´s be honest he KNOWS what he´s doing and why he´s doing it, to me most of this relationship has to be with the actors and their acting because it has been their physical expresions that give us more to think about it, and to me Jensen has always play a big deal on it because Dean faces tend to be more expresive
and if he was doing something out of what the show runners didn´t want the fans to see, they would fucking stop him or them
