Castiel’s first instinct is to cover Dean and protect him from the glass, which isn’t a big shock to us. What’s really surprising is how Dean’s first instinct is to just go with it and let Castiel protect him, which is a big deal. Dean isn’t the kind of guy to admit that he needs protection or help. He’s stubborn and likes to do things on his own. So when Dean admits that he needs your help it’s a big deal. Sure Dean doesn’t turn to Castiel when the glass is about to blow and say, “Hey can you protect me from Raphael because the guy is a son of a bitch and I have a feeling he’ll try to pull something.” But the fact that Dean leans into Castiel and lets him cover him means an awful lot.
