It's funny. Last season's DVD commentary ended with Doc/Jason commenting on how Dean gets shat on all the time and implied this season would be different. But taking the entire season as a whole, Dean got REALLY shat on this season. He finds out he's a clone. He finds a girl that likes him only to get their memories wiped. His faux-mom who he was trying to connect with ended up trying to rebirth him. His future plans fall apart. He gets shackled with an insane Sean Connery while Hank gets $50 and a new base. And at the very end, after struggling with the truth for a year, he tells Hank he's a clone too and the guy doesn't care one bit.

By season 8 Dean's going to go on a shooting spree if this keeps up.

On the other hand, Dean was given the time to think through his issues, realise he couldn't come to terms with them, then be offered a fresh perspective, one he hadn't even considered. If he's wise, he'll understand that. Hank's attitude could be just what Dean needs.

I got the impression last season that Dean wanted to be a fireman, though. All those 'up in smoke', 'dreams salvaged from ashes' puns. It never seemed to go anywhere.

Did anyone else take that away from BL,DC?

Hahahahaha. You're totally right. I think the guys have been trying to pump up Hank's popularity since season three, and maybe it's tipped too much in the opposite direction. It's time for Dean to have his day, I think.

On the plus side Dean is a far more bearable character to me. I felt like he was in weird character development stasis in season three and especially season four. There were practically no changes to his usual boy adventurer/bad with girls/soft spoken schtick that was there almost from the start of season one. I actually really liked him in season five. Usually sulking characters can be annoying in a different kind of way, but I feel like his reasons for doing so were justified and I liked that he just went "fuck this shit" to his entire life. It's a nice foil to Hank, who wholly embraces how absurd his life is.
