Let's talk about Benny (spoilers, probably)

(Anonymous)
So seeing the OTT responses to a casual comment about Benny being "one of the most important people in Dean's life at the moment" in that Ausiello article with the 8x05 photos, I'm curious as to how meme is seeing him.

Like, reading the comments on that article and on tumblr, I'm getting the impression that many fans feel like Benny is up to no good, he's got nefarious evil plans for Dean and whatnot.

I totally didn't get that vibe form him at all. To me, he comes across as genuinely liking Dean and visa versa, with them being actual friends and brothers at arms and protective of each other. I'm really not getting a Ruby-esque 'has evol plans' vibe from him at all.

What about the rest of you?

I'm not sure I see him playing a long con the way Ruby was, though that view might change if he turns out to be the sinister figure lurking outside Sam's house. I do see him and Dean as having genuinely bonded. But I think he is probably going to kill topside, and I think he is going to be a force pulling Dean back to the person he was in purgatory, and a sinister influence on his life in that regard. And I do think that the whole brother language and current situation where Benny is the one who has Dean's back and Sam isn't is in for a reversal down the line.

I think Benny probably has bonded with Dean in a legitimate way, but his nature may bring him down in the end. So in that way, more of a creature like Amy or Maddie than like Ruby. I don't think he's got a long-term plan or anything... he just wanted to be free from Purgatory. If he could make a clean second chance of it, I get the impression he would, and wants to. It's just whether that's possible or not.

I want to see him drink Dean's blood. Those are my thoughts on the character atm.

These are valid thoughts. Very valid.

+1 !!!

Also (SPOILERS) his sailor hat is ridiculous and adorable and I want him to cuddle Dean wearing one of those cuddly sailor sweaters. On the cute little boat. And then they live on a boat with Lisa and Dean can sit there fish which is relaxing and something he enjoys.

He will probably attempt to kill Sam at some point and drink Sam's blood so Dean will have to kill him. Sam always steals Dean's friends and storylines. ~~~

Yeah, from what Jensen was saying at SDCC or wherever about Benny being this really evil guy who is up to no good, I haven't really gotten that impression from him yet. Maybe that's a later reveal but so far I'm not seeing it.

What exactly did he say? I don't remember this at all.

I'm interested in him and so far like his relationship with Dean. I do think it is going to be a Ruby type situation, because it's the arc that makes the most sense for him, to me. I think he's going to pull Dean into some questionable choices. I also think that the fact that there have been some hints that Castiel is a bit jealous and suspicious is going to be a hint, along with the fact that Dean's keeping Sam out of the loop.

I don't think he has some giant evil plan (though I could be wrong). We're already dealing with the theme of Dean disconnected from humanity, and Benny might push that to the extreme. But they seem to genuinely like each other. So - not evil, but I doubt he'll wind up being good news for Dean. Unless Dean has amazing powers of persuasion and gets Benny on their side a la Castiel.

Dean's power of persuasion is his penis.

I had the impression he was Ruby 3.0 from spoilers and 8.1 but his immediate calling out of Cas in the flashback made me think he and Dean may have a legitimate friendship. If he reverts back to his vamp ways and feeds, Dean may be forced to take him out. But I guess we'll see. I'm 6.5 out of 10 on the "Do you like Benny?" scale. The accent being most of his points.

I'm still waiting for Beanstiel purgatory fics. The flashback gave me so many cravings for Cas/Benny hate sex while spit roasting Dean.

I'm still annoyed that they didn't go with some other creature type to explore and find the vampire aspect of the character and the upcoming vampire storyline stuff meh inspiring.

Re: Let's talk about Benny (spoilers, probably)

I HOPE he's not up to no good, and genuinely fond of Dean. Because seriously, give us ONE good monster here. But I'm sure the Winchesters will kill him in the end, sadly.

It's just, you know, what could he be planning? He's just a vampire. He is not affiliated with Crowley. He cannot become the new alpha-vamp (which isn't just a title but actually the first vampire, right? I don't really remember anymore.)

Yes, please! I can't wait to see him pursuing Sam and Dean! :D
