Sam tried to defend Dean against Egyptian god Osiris in Supernatural Season 7, Episode 4. Here are my five favorite lines from the episode.
In Supernatural Season 7, Episode 4, Dean’s life was on the line thanks to the Egyptian god Osiris. Sam would attempt to defend his brother, but it wouldn’t quite be enough. To continue our look back at Season 7 to get through Hellatus, here’s a look at my five favorite lines from “Defending Your Life.”
Wait a second, do dogs even have ghosts?
I’ve always found the discussion of animals and the afterlife interesting, which is why I do think this line stood out. Another reason this one stood out is that the spirit of a dog was up for discussion, rather than the discussion of a possible hellhound around.
But, the question still stands. Do dogs even have ghosts? Don’t all dogs go to Heaven?
It could be Christine-like.

There were a few Stephen King references throughout Supernatural Season 7, Episode 4. This one stands out because it connects back to the pilot episode. After all, Baby was possessed by a spirit and became Christine-like.
This episode had a few connections back to the pilot. In fact, the next line is one of those.

Don’t you think that your brother dragged you back into that catastrophic mess because he’d rather damn you with him than be alone?
In the pilot episode, Dean tells Sam that he doesn’t want to hunt alone. He can do it, but that doesn’t mean he wants to be without his brother by his side. It’s clear that Dean did pull Sam back into this mess when he could have accepted the solitary life.
It’s not that we’re complaining, but no matter what Sam ever said, one thing was clear. Dean knew that he could have avoided pulling Sam back into it, but he made an understandably selfish choice.
Hunters are never kids. I never was. I didn’t even stop to think about it.
Dean realizes a lot about his life and his guilt. One of those moments is this point, talking to Jo. He knows that he stopped Jo and Sam being kids because of the hunter life. Again, it doesn’t matter what Jo says. Dean feels the guilt.
One thing I love about this episode is we delve deeper into Dean’s psychology. We’ve always know that he’s thought little about himself. This is another one of those cases where he doesn’t even try to fight for his life, believing that he deserves Osiris’ punishment.
I can’t do this alone.
Finally, we get another connection to the pilot episode. Dean admits to Sam that he can’t do it alone. And when Sam tells him that he could, Dean makes it clear that he doesn’t want to. He needs his brother by his side, not to physically save his life but to mentally save him from the hunter’s life.
