4. Regarding Dean

I will start this by admitting that I am a Dean!Girl. But I also openly admit that he does get some of the best storylines throughout the series. However, “Regarding Dean” isn’t just about Dean Winchester. This Supernatural Season 12 episode is about the Winchester brothers. It’s about everything one would do for another.

There are also many other messages and heartbreaking moments. One of the saddest of all time—in fact, the saddest of all time still—is when Dean looks in the mirror. It’s used a lot in fan videos now, but it’s when Dean looks in the mirror and tries to remember everything. As his brain starts forgetting, we watch the panic, sadness, and despair show in his eyes.

All he wants to do is remember his brother, his parents, and his best friend. I think even forgetting his name would be fine, as long as he got to remember his family.

Sam is terrified of losing his brother. This isn’t just about losing Dean to death but losing every essence of who Dean is. While the big fear at the end of this episode was that Dean would forget how to swallow and breathe, there was the initial fear of Dean forgetting everything about himself, his family, and the life of a hunter. He was vulnerable but it also left Sammy alone.

Another plus point for this episode was that Rowena was the one to help save Dean. Sure, she did it for ulterior motives to get the Black Grimoire, but she also showed she had a soft spot for the Winchesters. It was a turning point to see her turn good.
