I Love my dash! No Jensen hate in sight.
I love to see cons online (not being able to get to one myself) but they are starting to scare me now. It saddens me.
Jensen never seems to say what some what to hear. He gets emotions, opinions, and words put in his mouth and then the hate begins.
What he says, to me, seems clear and distinct from his ‘characters’, his actors’ point of view. He has played Dean for nine years. He knows the character. He talks to the writers. They know the characters.
I will never understand how playing a straight character and knowing, at this time, this episode, this season, that the character is straight, so he plays it that way, this actor is then accused of being homophobic because he relays this information.
Jensen said, so I read, that he is glad he had less Cas & Dean scenes. I see nothing wrong with that. You can’t shove D&C scenes in when they don’t fit the episode or the plot. Dean got to relate to Crowley, Cain and was estranged from his bro (who was interacting with Cas) so it made sense. It moved the plot along and got it the season final that blew us all away.
I’ve always believed that Cass & Dean have a deep bond from Cas being somewhat Dean’s protector and savior and that they are connected in a profound way, just not ‘that’ way.
I don’t think Jensen can ever win. No matter how he answers he is always wrong.
Do I believe he is homophobic? No.(I’m sure his fav gay aunt & her partner would be happy to explain the difference if asked)
Do I believe he is perfect? No
Do I believe he is a kind, nice person who cares? Yes.
Do I believe that Jensen would rather not be asked non canon related questions and more about the shows reality (canon) and the craft itself? Yes!
And finally, after the final they gave us, you know, that one that knocked us off our feet, it makes me sad that the con is starting off with the usual Jensen hate that seems to happen every time now because he doesn’t see his character like shippers do.
It makes me sad
