Exactly. But the savior's sacrifice must always be selfless or it doesn't hold the potential to redeem the world. In order to save the world others for others, he must give up his own world. Such is the cross he bears, if you'll forgive the obviousness of that pun. ;)

I think I pondered this last night in my sleep. Somebody help me. *g*

Maybe because unlike the big scale battles of Buffy and Angel where literally the world hung in balance, I have trouble applying the same to Sam.
Letting the demon go sure is bad news, especially for our poor Winchesters but for about 99 % of the population? Not a blip on the radar screen.

And again, total sympathy for the saviour rejecting the sacrifice because who truly has a right to demand that of him.

So I guess in the end for me it is both, a personal triumph and yet a cosmic failure.
Yes, I love my little paradoxons. ;-)

I don't know about that. I think the implication of such a dramatic increase demonic possessions may be intended to indicate that a world-in-the-balance kind of battle is in the offing. That may not be accurate, but that's the way I've been taking it.

And again, total sympathy for the saviour rejecting the sacrifice because who truly has a right to demand that of him.

Oh, absolutely. I don't think the role of savior is something anyone can -- rightfully or otherwise -- demand of Sam. I just think that is his role in all this. Or at least, that there's good groundwork laid that it is intended to be his role, or his destiny, if you will.

And I'm all for paradoxons. :D
