Voluntarily stayed behind at work meaning I’m doing a 14 hour shift. The only thing that is getting me through is the fact it’s pay day tomorrow and I’ve got a 4 day weekend! Booyaaaa!

#”If you want.”#Gahhhhh such a profound focus on consent and allowing someone else their own personhood.#Even though Jodi really wants to be the one to help pick Alex back up again#she’s still willing to let Alex decide if she wants that too#and is ready to respect whatever choice Alex makes. (via dustline)
Yes, and Jody understood that Alex was a child, that she had been acculturated to help kill people by her vamp family, and had grown up in a situation of abuse, when Dean and Sam believed Alex’s vamp-brother’s story, that she was responsible (which says everything about the levels of responsibility for killing they too were expected to bear as kids).
This scene really hits me because what we see in Jody’s mannerisms with Alex is what we want, or possibly need, but are not getting in the current dynamic between Sam and Dean. Because it’s easy to label Dean as soley Mother and condemn or reject him, unless you have the wisdom to grasp he is Alex too, with years more conditioning he doesn’t know how to deal with. To label and treat Dean as Momma is to essentially abandon him as something irredeemable. To recognize his ties to Alex is to grasp he too could potentially be rehabilitated.. but only if someone in Dean’s life can be to Dean what Jody has chosen to be for Alex.
