let’s be honest, i was really just in it for the last three panels.
Then again, I mean, Sam could have just been under pressure or he could have lost some of his know-how when Gadreel scrambled his memory time and again or he could have just, you know, needed some time, like maybe he knew about how long he’d need. Maybe he didn’t fix stuff all that fast? Idek.
But yeah, it does sound a little, “Let’s write an episode about dogs where we never mention the GIGANTIC CHARACTER TRAIT OF SAM’S that is that Sam loves dogs.”
Meh, I’m done making excuses for inconsistencies like this. If Sam was fixing electric devices like air conditioners and vent fans, he shouldn’t need Linda to tell him what the U.S. electrical code is for a ground wire. Nope, not buying it. That’s the kind of thing that Sam would remember if not from his time as a handyman, then just from life experience in general. I don’t know that car ignitions follow the same color code, but we know that Sam has hotwired a car on more than a couple occasions.
The fact is that this set of writers dumb down the Winchesters when it is convenient for their plot. Not testing the workers at Castle Storage when they knew that Crowley had an accomplice there was dumb. Dean turning his back on Del in the storage locker was a rookie mistake. I’m tired of that kind of lazy writing, but maybe I’m being too hard on the writers. I mean, how can you write a character who is smarter than you are? That’s a serious limitation.
As a dumb person who routinely creates characters smarter than myself, I can confirm it’s really hard to write them.
But yeah, a childhood spent hotwiring cars, picking the locks of handcuffs and doors and padlocks, an entire constellation of getaway plans and if-we’re-separated plans which I have to assume included how to bypass electronic locks, canon evidence in season one that they can rewire alarm systems to break into secure buildings, AND a year spent fixing crap, and he can’t get the door open? And what was the point of that? She did it herself in the same amount of time a competent Sam would have gotten it done, so it’s not even like it moved the plot along.
Yeah, that and the dogs thing from the… dog episodes whatever it was called — really burns me up. And the little look Linda gives him, like, oh brother what a hopeless buffoon. And I LIKE Linda. Dammit writers.
I was a heavy heart to carry
my beloved was weighed down
My arms around his neck
My fingers laced to crown
I was a heavy heart to carry
But he never let me down
When he had me in his arms
My feet never touched the ground
I need Dean to call Sam “little brother” and “Sammy” always
“Hey Sammy hand me my gun”
“You OK there Sammy?”
“Watch it, little brother”
“God, little brother, you look so good on my cock”
“You and I have seen nothing yet, our journeys have just begun.”

If you want to break Dean free of that demon deal, you ain’t gonna find any answer in no book.
