“Supernatural”: Hey, fans who have been waiting to see Dean have a storyline separate from Sam’s plight — your patience will pay off this season. Sources tell us that Dean’s return from Purgatory and his relationship with Benny the vampire will give him a strong connection to the season’s overarching themes, without Sam serving as a middle-man. It opens the door for the boys to spend some time apart as Dean digs himself deeper into that world and Sam… well, tries to maintain a relationship. Of course, even as their priorities shift, the brothers’ relationship remains central to the season. Their time apart has given them the tools to live separately; but that doesn’t mean they want to.
