Supernatural speculations post 516
I was thinking about the episode again when I realized something.

Heaven (or at least Zachariah's guys) and hell seem to have some kind of deal. Or at least they're cooperating enough to let the other side get their hands on their own Vessel so they can get this Apocalypse on the road.

Logically, you'd think that Heaven would do any effort they can to make sure Michael gets his Vessel before Lucifer gets his. Lucifer's less powerful while in Nick, than he'd be in Sam after all... Or at the very least you'd expect them to try and destroy Sam before Lucifer gets his hands on him.

Yet instead, they've revived Sam at least twice now.

On the other side, you'd think that hell would be happy that Dean is saying 'no'. As long as he does, and Lucifer already has a Vessel, temporary one or not, they have the upper hand. Yet standing orders from hell are to kill Dean Winchester.

This might seem logical until you realize that as shown in 516, once Dean dies, he goes to Heaven...and right into Heaven's hands. In fact, at this point, it would be better for Hell to keep Dean alive, because it keeps him out of Micheal's hands.

Strategically, both make no sense, unless you accept that both sides seem to have a deal to assure as much as they can that both sides are wearing a Winchester for the Apocalypse. And that to me is rather scary.

i just figured that the angels REALLY want an all out brawl with Michael and Lucifer, and they want it to be a good fight, so Heaven will keep bringing Sam to life and everybody will keep attacking DEAN in order to make them WANT to fight each other. make them hate each other in order to give Michael and Lucy enough fuel for the battle.

Assuming that if dean says yes, sam will say yes too.

I'm pretty sure that Heaven is factioned up the wazoo, even if there is a facade of everyone being orderly and obedient.

But yes, I'm agree that Michael & Team Predestination are cooperating with Lucifer enough that both Winchester are available to slip on when Detroit comes around... :P

It's a two-man con on humanity, basically. I hope everyone involved gets *smote* in the end.
