Anonymous said: I don't think that Cole guy is searching for Dean with good intentions because if i do recall right Jared or Carver said that he (Cole) will cause Sam and Dean some problems.
I admit when the first spoiler about the mysterious character came out, I immediately assumed he’d mean trouble and would be looking for Dean to ~utilize his new demonness to his own advantage. Just like Crowley seems to have planned (given his actions in S9 and the spoiler about him suggesting a business relationship with Dean that Dean may or may not turn down - hell, if it’s about running hell, I could imagine Dean just saying “naaa, it’s my throne now”). And that seems to not work out all that well for the king, so…
More recent spoilers make it seem that he might rather be a Benny-esque character, but human. Of course he could be after Dean for revenge or whatever and therefore causing problems. But he may also be posing problems for a completely different reason.
Whatever he turns out being (though of course I have my hopes set on some possibilities more than others) I remain excited and curious about the character. How about you, dear anon? :)
I have to wonder whether this new Cole character, if indeed has bad rather than good intentions, is going to serve as a contrast to Sam’s search. Several times, last season especially, Dean has been framed as a tool or weapon to be used eg Magnus, Crowley. Now those instances were directly concerned with dean having the mark of Cain and I believe Carver stated Cole’s intentions were not related to that. BUT I have to wonder, we have Sam searching for Dean the person, his brother who he loves, maybe this Cole individual is searching for Dean the hunter, and by that I mean searching not who he is (even though they share a past) but rather what he does (or can do). And perhaps these two searches are further symbols of choices Dean must make or conflicts he is facing, between humanity and ‘other’. Just some thinly thoughts.
The tweets Travis Aaron Wade sent out does make it seem he rather is playing a ~bad guy. *crazy btw how the feelings on one character can change so fast based on just some tiny words someone send out into the world :* I very much like your idea. That was my initial thought, that Cole is seeking out Dean, because he wants to use him for his own advantage whatever it may be. There also lies the possibility that he is looking for revenge for something Dean did way back in the day (maybe he hooked up with Cole’s gf? - though for my taste this would be VERY meeeeh). But in general the idea of why people are looking/~hunting for different versions of Dean so to speak, I find interesting, it fits to the whole being loved just cause vs. being ~loved because of… that Dean has been struggling with all his life.
If Cole was another character pulling Dean towards the darkness it would certainly contrast nicely with Sam, who is (probably by going way dark himself just in differeing ways to Dean) trying to pull Dean towards the light.
Question to me really is right now, is he hunting Dean the way Gordon was hunting down Sam with the intention of killing him because of whatever happened back when they met and him realizing that now that Dean is something supernatural it just gives him all the more reason to go through with it or if he is searching for Dean, because he needs Dean’s help/maybe wants to thank him, because back in the day he saved his life or whatever or if he wants use Dean for some questionable quest. Either way at the moment - and especially after Wade’s tweets - it seems he’ll be a rather grey character, so in that vein a bit like Benny really…
