5 feet one inch of sass and sarcasm. reblogging whatever I want to. perpetually reading, always writing, constantly dreaming.
I wondered for a long time about the scene. Dean is so protective of the Impala, why would he take out his anger on Baby? Then I realized what the Impala represents. Family. The Winchester’s childhood. All those hunts, all those nights, all the fear, pain, and triumph of the last 22 years. Most of all, it represented John. It was his car, his baby first. He taught Dean how to hunt in that Impala, how to drive, how to live on the road. The Impala was the only home Dean had ever had as a kid, and it was his only reminder of his Dad. Dean hit Baby because he was so angry at his Dad for leaving him, and the Impala was the only thing he had to remember him by. And then he went, repaired her, and carried on, like the good son he always was.
