But we can’t rely on blind faith to help us out of it, but rather on intelligent devotion. The question for me has now become: where is the line between having hope and becoming a blind follower? We don’t want Dean to become a blind follower and just have hope for the sake of having it. But for that to happen, he needs to figure out how to keep hope alive without becoming susceptible to false prophets. By the same token, how can Castiel rekindle his hope? And will Sam’s need for redemption be enough to keep him going?
