Well, honestly, I'm still having trouble digesting the fact that Sam didn't look for Dean.
I can forgive him for not looking for Kevin, even for giving up hunting. He was lost without Dean. They both are lost without each other in the world of hunting. BUT HOW COULD HE HAVE NOT LOOKED FOR DEAN?! How's that even possible, given what we've seen in the previous seven seasons?
However, I do agree with you. The whole cold war between Sam and Dean makes me depressed. I want them to have that easy-going relationship, where they cared so much for each other. I want them to stop fighting about Benny and actually talk it out.
I'm sure that if Dean at least explains what all happened with Benny in the purgatory and why he trusts him so much, Sam would feel less icy towards Benny. They don't usually have a heart-to-heart but some of the rare times that they did, things got better.
@bold : i can never forgive Sam for this...he has always been the less sensitive of brothers
actually 3 things are here
1] the heart to heart talking moment is lost post season 5
2] IMO Sam is very very jealous and insecure seeing his only blood relative and family DEAN NOT trusting him as much as he is trusting a complete outsider (Benny)
its like a mirror situation...of S4...Sam was all for Trusting and siding with Ruby...and dean never trusted her and was constantly icy towards her...
the only difference in S4 and S8 situation is Ruby Deliberately wanted to come between the brothers
...and was applying divide and rule policy
where as here UPTO NOW...Benny never ever wanted to come in between a relationship already so fragile!!
3]Dean is very very emotional
!! he thinks through his heart
THAT'S the reason he kept on (albeit in a muted / toned down way) doing his work of hunting and looking for his sammy post "Swan song"...
BUT sam is the practical of the two
...sorta disconnected partially from any emotions
hence once dean vanished with dick and cas he took that he is gone forever
and dint even try to analyse and deduce the possible conditions dean would have ended in.
...having great brains like sam has...it would have not taken long to deduce purgatory
All these theories about WHY SAM DINT LOOK FOR HIS ELDER SIBLING is based on what they have shown till now
...the season is still young
...and SPN is known to spring surprises
...who knows the entire story post dean's vanishing act??
