There was a quote floating around a while back that I mis-attributed to Carver—when actually it was from Ben Edlund saying something about a relationship on the show that fans like to speculate about will be resolved… Now, I don’t have the original source (comic con, I think?) but I’d heard it several times.
Now some other people have told me that duh, you dummy, Ben was NOT talking about Supernatural. That could be, I don’t know and I haven’t had time to re-watch the Comic Con interviews.
All I know is that when we were chatting the quote was brought up and I repeated it as best as my memory allowed. Misha listened and looked thoughtful and said, “A relationship that fans like to speculate about? Well, yeah, that would sound like he’s talking about Dean and Cas to me. That’s really the only love relationship on the show that it could apply to.”
At the meet n greet, after the above comment that Misha made, we all must’ve made astonished faces because Misha impatiently said, I think the love there is made pretty clear.
And I said, Sure, on Cas’s part, its well established that he loves Dean, but I don’t think it is on Dean’s side. (yes, arguing just to get him to elaborate, I’m bad)
And he sorta rolled his eyes and said, C’mon, in the first few episodes, Dean’s running around Purgatory, chopping off heads, Where’s the angel, where’s the angel, you know, the guy I’m in love with?
Us: I DON’T REMEMBER DEAN SAYING THAT!!
Misha: He might as well have. You know, we know what it is, what’s going on. We don’t talk about it. The actors don’t, Jensen and I don’t. But we’re all perfectly aware of how the relationship is, the writers are completely aware of how it’s being written. It may be unspoken but that doesn’t mean it’s not there or not true.
Yes, at the Meet n Greet, Misha completely confirmed that Dean and Cas are in a love relationship. He did not specify romantic or sexual, but then again… At that point, he didn’t need to.
