Anonymous asked: On a social level I hate the Lisa lying to Dean argument because of the saame reason as you, on a in-universe level I hate it because it makes zero sense. Maybe in her first episode because she wouldnt want her son exposed to his world but in that case why the fuck would she still keep this from Dean after living a year together, especially with not having plans of seperating or Dean returning to the hunting life


Agreed on both parts. I mean, given that she thought Sam was dead, that the hunting part of Dean’s life was over, and that she was currently experiencing the ‘best of year of her life’*… if Dean was Ben’s biological father, then I can see zero reason she wouldn’t have told him at some point. Lisa knew Dean well enough, I think, that she would have known he would have understood if she said, “I didn’t tell you before because your life wasn’t one I wanted Ben involved in, but now that you’ve sought us out and picked a non-hunting life, I want you to know that Ben is biologically your son,” and that he wouldn’t have held her lying in S3 against her.

I just feel like it goes against everything we know about Lisa’s character to assume she would have lied and then kept lying about that. Especially since, if Dean was Ben’s biological father, it would be important for medical history reasons or potential donor issues (or ‘Ben is a potential vessel for an archangel’ issues, lol).

* Lisa: “Yeah, well, the guy that basically just saved the world shows up at your door, you expect him to have a couple of issues. And you’re always so amazing with Ben. You know what I wanted, more than anything was a guy that Ben could look up to like a dad. So, you’re saying it’s all bad, Dean? ‘Cause it was the best year of my life.” 6x01 - “Exile on Main St.”

Filed under ben being dean's bio son makes no sense and there's no evidence to support it imo
