Because if not... how much would I pay to watch Mark watch Hamilton? SO MUCH <3 <3 <3
Dean is drawn to her because she represents, in her words in this episode, "the end of his struggle". Or more specifically, his END, period. :(
I am so very intrigued to see some more interaction between Chuck and Lucifer. Just a couple short lines between them were so intriguing to me, and I'm so frustrated that's where the episode left us, because I NEED more!! :P lol
If that makes sense. :P
There was one new thing in the Dean/Amara scene that I noticed, and talk about a little in my own comment - she explains to him WHY he's drawn to her, and it's something I'd expected before, but hadn't had confirmed. She tells him that she represents the "end to his struggle". It's not just a misplaced romantic connection.
She is NOTHINGNESS, Chuck said. Empty. Void. Dark. The end.
The end of Dean's pain. The end of his constant ceaseless fight. Peace. Dean's drawn to her because on some level he WANTS it to be over. :(
In the Lizzie Borden episode near the beginning of this season, the show explored the variation in the effects Amara has on different people under different conditions. She took a soul from a man who was more or less happy with his life - he enjoyed his fandom, his obsessions, his LIFE... and he wanted that back. She also took a soul from a girl who was miserable and tormented - she'd been abused and mistreated most of her life, rejected in the near term by a boyfriend - and she felt BLISS.
But it wasn't really "bliss", was it? It was the ABSENCE OF PAIN. She liked what Amara did to her, because where before there had only been suffering, now there was emptiness - which to her felt like PEACE.
In the same episode Sam pointedly asked Dean how HE felt when he was alone with Amara, and Dean was kind of evasive about it. But I got the distinct impression that his reaction was more like the second victim in the episode.
It's the same as Dean saying that he enjoyed torturing souls in Hell. I have to question - did he REALLY "enjoy" it? Or did it just FEEL like pleasure because it was an end to the constant pain? :( And now, Dean feels the pull of that emptiness, that nothingness, the END to his struggle, as Amara stated specifically in this episode. There's an appeal to him about the idea of no longer existing - and therefore no longer SUFFERING.
And that's utterly heartbreaking. :(
