So - the incident with the beer. A small moment, easily missed, which has sparked much speculation.
Was it a reference to Dean’s drinking problem?It’s been getting obviously worse all season, and Bobby’s death is likely to have bought on another binge. More on the boys uses of booze - both good and bad.
Was ghost Bobby quaffing the beer? It did happen as Dean found Bobby’s hipflask - was that a clue?
Then there’s the possibility that it was Castiel. Interestingly, the part of whiskey that evaporates during distilling is called the angel’s share!
Then there’s the clue that there’s something awry with time. Dean finds his beer empty when it was full a moment ago; Frank swears Dean gave him Bobby’s numbers four days and not four weeks ago, and Dean sleeps for 36 hours. Of course next week’s episode theme makes this a distinct possibility.
And finally - Dean mentions Dick Roman is at a TED conference. A wonderful example of the level of detail in the show - Back in "How to Win Friends And Influence Monsters", one of the folders Bobby took out of Dick’s suitcase was labelled “TED Conference”.
Add into this that the TED conference Dick is attending is most likely the one held in Long Beach from Feb 27 – Mar 2, 2012. This encompasses Feb 29th - a very timey wimey day!
Whatever it means I love how intrigued it has everyone! What’s your theory?
