Then I remember the episode Reunion. Where Rose freaked out because the Doctor had never even mentioned Sarah Jane Smith to her. Never even said her name before. That was her biggest fear: that the Doctor would someday not think about her. And then, she meets Martha and the first thing she hears is “Oh my god. He found you.”
Imagine that. Imagine if the first time you met someone, they immediately say “Oh my god. It’s you. Finally.”
In that moment, she knows how broken the Doctor was when they got separated. How even his future companions knew how utterly destroyed he was. Because he does not wear his emotions on his sleeve. He buries his pain. And for Martha and Donna to know how hurt he was. Well that’s a big deal.
I have a lot of feelings about ghost!winchesters okay
#the souls of two boys tied to a car that still carries them wherever they need to go #they still hunt #they still save people #but they forget that it’s weird that you don’t have to eat or drink or sleep #they don’t bother checking in at motels anymore #just find an empty room and spread out their research #(although it’s more books now-sam’s computer always seems to be on the fritz) #they laugh at the surprise on a wendigo’s face when its claws go right through them #like they’re nothing more than smoke #and wow just ghosts saving people from ghosts? #and other hunters talking about the winchesters #’I heard they died’ #’they never die. not really. not forever.’ (via)
