Tag to 2.17 'Heart'. More than one heart was broken that night. Dean's POV
Disclaimer: I own nothing, I just borrow them and put them back as I found them.
It was back here in the motel room that Sam really fell apart. He had loved her; she was the first to make him happy after Jess, and, God, how I loved her for that; but she begged to die and wanted Sam to pull the trigger; it broke his heart to do it.
It broke my heart to let him.
And Sam's heart is all that matters. I'll be strong for him; I'll be his rock like I always have been, as long as he needs me. Sam's heart is fragile, and I'll guard it with my life.
My heart can wait.
