Question: Roy and Walt

I need your guys' opinion...  (and yes, that is acceptable colloquial grammar in Canadaland)

So, remember back in Season 5, in the episode Dark Side of the Moon, when two hunters named Roy and Walt totally killed Sam and Dean and Dean was SUPER pissed off about it. And he told Roy and Walt that he was going to kill them when he got back from being dead....

Do you think, all these years later, he'd kill Roy and Walt, if he came across them?

It's been 6 years, chronologically, and 4 years in the narrative... unless Dean went off an killed Roy and Walt in a non-televised adventure, he seems to have forgotten about them, changed his mind, or it's a very very low priority.

So, in your opinion, if Dean were to say ACCIDENTALLY come upon them, what do you think his reaction would be? What do you think Sam's reaction would be?

(I may or may not need this information for a fic, btw... it's an idea that I've been toying with for a while, but the more time passes, the more I'm uncertain what the most believable way to write such a scene would be.)

I know LJ has been a bit dead recently, but PLEASE share your opinion - I'd really really appreciate it. Even if you're a lurker and have never spoken to me before...or even if you hate-read my LJ (do I have hate-readers? don't answer that), please let me know what you think! I don't have anonymous posting turned on, because I kept getting too much spam... but I know you can leave comments through FB, twitter, G+ etc too, so you don't necessarily need an LJ account.

(And obviously, none of us know what the Mark is doing to Dean, so for the time being, you can factor that into your answer if you like, but you can also give your opinion about what Dean would do sans Mark, or back in S8, rather than right now. It's up to you!)

Cool! Thanks, this is the direction I was leaning in as well... but was unsure, so it helps to have other people's opinions who may view the characters a little differently than I do.

Then again, if he ran into these two again and they threatened some form of bodily harm to himself or to Sam or to anyone else within his "family" unit, I don't think Dean would hesitate twice to kill them, he would gladly put them out of their misery.

Follow-up question - what if they threatened someone in his "family unit", but it was a misunderstanding... like, they thought the person was a monster, when he's harmless (it's similar to what they thought of Sam after all.) Do you think Dean would just correct them, maybe beat them up a little, and let them go? Or do you think he'd kill them for making the same mistake twice?

If, say, they went after Garth? Or if they looked crosswise at Krissie or Charlie or Mama Tran? Yeah, no second chances. He'd kill 'em (or else hold them down and let their intended victim do the honors). That would put them too close to Gordon in his book, I think.
Jody wouldn't give him a chance, I think. She'd blow those blockheads away herself.

Awesome. Thanks! Garth is a good example for that scenario, because it's not like they're wrong about what he is, but they're wrong about the threat level, much like when they got it wrong with Sam.

I also just realized that I've been debating whether Sam or Dean would try to correct them or kill them - but I should also be thinking about whether Roy or Walt would be willing to even listen. As you say, they COULD be compared to Gordon - unwilling to hear the other side. They certainly didn't give Sam or Dean very much change to defend themselves when they attacked them, what with breaking in when they were sleeping and blowing them away pretty much as soon as they woke up.

Hmmm.....your follow-up question is a good one. I'm not sure how to answer that. I know Dean says that he is a shoot first ask questions later kinda guy, but when exactly has Dean really been and done that? If Walt and Roy had hurt someone in his family and Dean got the upper hand, I think he would tie them up, torture and question first and foremost, then decide whether or not to kill. Like Dean has said, they don't kill people, unless motivated towards that, or had no other option. If Walt and Roy had killed someone in his family, then I think all bets are off and he would probably kill, no questions asked.

Cool. Thanks for the opinion! This alllllll helps. :)
