Bless SPN for this scene. Bless Carver for turning the audience’s own preconceived notions on their head. Bless him for the archery symbolism that ties neatly back to not only the theme of hearts, but also Artemis whom we saw fall in love inappropriately according to the precepts of Olympus. Bless the two plaid-wearing, bearded scruffy men who are stand-ins for Hunters and Dean’s notion of über masculinity who also fall in love, but this time with heaven’s express and noteworthy nudge. Bless this rare (the cupid did say her arrows were being directed less and less frequently) and heaven-mandated event to be one of the last things heaven does before it stops meddling in the affairs of humans. Bless this event for happening in front of Dean and Cas. Bless Cas for his nonchalance and easy acceptance and Dean’s pause of consideration. Bless this neon sign toward Destiel becoming definitively canon.
Can I just add that Cupid says “I’ll be seeing you both.“
Cupids don’t stick around to watch their matches. They don’t just pop in for a check-up and certainly don’t do follow-up appointments to just sit and marvel at their great work.
The Cupid is talking about Heaven. She’ll see them both in Heaven, because contrary to popular belief, homosexuality is not a sin and they are welcome up there. I don’t think I’ve ever smiled so hard at anything as I did when I realised that this was the show telling us that homosexuality, that to love a person of the same sex, is alright. You won’t be shunned by God, you’re not hated, you deserve love and you deserve an endless amount of happiness.
Even after death.
I think that’s awesome.
