I think you meant to say thread not forum.
No. Forum. Threads as well, but forums galore. This site, other sites every frickin' site in the world. I meant forum.
|No kidding. No one else seems to have a problem with this topic. Plus, none of the other forums have been able to come up with a definitive answer. Maybe this forum will. |
my friend n i...we're in our business studies class (shhhh) believe that the pendant is most definatly some sort of charm. Maybe it's a gift from a magical 'lady friend' on one of his solo missions.... or he took the charm off a supernatural foe as a kind of trophy...?
lots 'o' love sam n aimee ^_^
back to the bank reconciliations *sigh*
If ya'll don't mind I"ll take this moment to re-iterate my theory on the pendant (I wrote it on the speculations and spoiler thread, but I know some folks don't like that thread because of the spoiler part)
I too had been thinking about some of the things folks have been saying about Dean's pendant.
A lot of folks seem to think that it indicates that it represents protection for HIM against evil.
My theory is that it represents Him as THE ProtecTOR.
I don't really think it imbues him with any special powers or anything, but maybe because it's sacred to him - it gives him a psychological edge - that sense of purpose that goes a lot further than vengeance - that's why he's so dedicated to the family business - that's why he's so adamant about helping anyone who he perceives as weaker than himself.
This would explain why some of the things that have happened to him have happened - the electrocution, and other things that are not quite so... savory. (trying not to spoil for anyone who hasn't gotten there yet). Let me know if any of you think this could be a good explanation.
And as I said before - Yes, I am starved for attention.
|Sifichick, I really like your idea. It sounds reasonable enough. BUT in one of the interviews (don't remember which) someone from production said Dean's pendant, the fact his eyes bled in 'Bloody Mary' and the city of Sacramento all have a special meaning to be revealed eventually. Dean definitely has a deep connection to that pendent, and if it's not obvious from the fact that he never takes it off (even in the shower - 'Bugs'), then that scene in 'Skin' makes it even more obvious. I still think it has something to do with The Demon|
Yeah, I wish they'd get to at least one of those meanings They've been alluding to them in interviews for a while now. I thought maybe one would be discovered by the end of this season.
EDIT: I don't believe that Dean has had the pendant since he was a baby/child, though. Simply because 4 year old and 9 year old Dean didn't have it (Pilot and Something Wicked). So it came sometime after then. I read an interesting fic where it was imbued with Fear and Loyalty, which allowed him to be a better protector. The fear manifested itself in him by the fear of losing his family, and loyalty - well, we all know he's loyal to a fault when it comes to Sam and John. These qualities make him more aware of what's around him and able to make decisions very quickly without thought of his own mortality when it comes to his family.
Whatever it is, I expect it will be worth the wait once Kripke et all choose to share it with us!
