As has slightly become my tradition, I'm going to do an edition of THIS DAY IN SUPERNATURAL HISTORY for Dean's birthday, which will mainly just be updating my previous edition....
NOTE: I follow chronological time, which means that the year Dean spent with Lisa and the year that he spent in Purgatory are included.January 24th1979 -
Dean Winchester is born.1984
- Jessica Moore is born. Elsewhere, Dean quietly turns 5.1990
- At some point in January, John investigates a series of grave robbings in Windom, Minnesota. He hooks up with a nurse. Hopefully, he does not miss Dean's birthday. Dean turns 11.2006
- It's the first time Sam's been around for Dean's birthday in four years! Hopefully they do something special...even though Sam's probably sad because it's his dead girlfriend's birthday too. Dean turns 27.2007 -
I'm hoping that Dean's birthday falls between putting Father Gregory's soul to rest in in Providence, Rhode Island, and Sam getting possessed and thus disappearing for over a week. Dean turns 28.2008 -
Dean doesn't get to celebrate his birthday over 100 times, so it either falls before or after Mystery Spot. My guess is before. I'm not sure if one celebrates their last birthday or quietly ignores it though. Dean turns 29.2009 -
Dean is probably still recovering from being beaten severely by Alistair, not to mention recovering from the news that he unknowingly broke the first seal to free Lucifer. Dean turns 30 (although his soul is now 70 years old).2010 -
Dean may have just escaped from a mental institution, or he may have just spent 24 hours with some teenage kid in Sam's body, or he may have just traveled back in time to save his parents' lives. In any case, I hope that Sam treated him to some pie. Dean turns 31.2011 -
Dean turns 32 at Lisa and Ben's house. Elsewhere, Sam is hunting without his soul.2012 -
There's a good possibility that Dean celebrates his 33rd birthday with a newly resouled Sammy. They may have just slain a dragon and rescued some virgins too.2013
- Bobby possibly dies very very close to Dean's 34th birthday. I'm going to go ahead and hope that maybe Dean, Sam, and Bobby all celebrated Dean's birthday just before going on the hunt in the woods of New Jersey. There is, however, a possibility that Bobby died just before Dean's birthday.2014 -
Dean turns 35 in purgatory (though he probably doesn't physically age) perhaps having already found Cas, perhaps still looking for him. Perhaps alone, perhaps with Benny by his side. Meanwhile, Sam is dating Amelia Richardson whilst living in a motel in Kermit, TX.2015
- Edited to Correct
We don't know how they spent the day, but the evening of Dean's 36th birthday finds the boys driving through Michigan. Sam pouring over research and focusing all his attention on the job now that he's chosen to put Amelia behind him.
On the road before sunrise, Dean wants to do something fun. Sam just wants to work. Luckily, Garth calls with a job that will give Dean a little bit of a birthday present even if it's a day late.
And there you have it. Happy Birthday Dean!
