I am so intrigued by this tho because first he’s tied up and this guy (presumably a demon, maybe one of Abaddon’s?) is showing him the blade
but then Dean somehow manages to get the blade despite still being tied up
And just the way he’s holding it…it looks like he’s surprised and not completely in control, as if maybe the blade jumped from the guy’s hand into his…because how else would he get it if he’s still tied up?
And in this photo as well
The way he’s holding his arm seems unnatural, it’s so far away from his body (it could just be an odd angle tho), so much so that at first glance I thought there was someone standing beside him and that was THEIR arm, it appears to be completely detached from his body almost.
Also look at his face, look at how sinister. Look at Crowley watching him, looming over his shoulder. Yesterday I said I believe Crowley is going to end up being Dean’s Ruby, as I think he has plans for him, and getting the blade in his hand is the first step.
I’m wondering if the man in the suit challenges Dean with the blade, maybe mocking him, not realising that in front of him is the new Cain. Then either Dean or maybe the blade reacts when they get close to each other (glows or something like that) and the man in the suit puts two and two together, and pushes up Dean’s sleeve revealing the mark. The blade and Dean are linked, and when the two get near to each other all hell breaks loose…Dean somehow gets hold of the blade, kills the man in the suit and so he’s makes his first kill, and all the while Crowley was watching?
