But, honestly, why does it need to be stated? Don't they do everything a couple does in a relationship? What do they need to do to appease people? Say "well, I guess we ARE in a relationship?" Honestly, I love how their relationship had developed over the years. It's not in these characters' personalities to be overly emotional. BUT, they do love each other. No one would deny that. There are different forms of love & I think this show does a great job showing all of that.
Supernatural 12x22//Who We Are--We all have acknowledged what Dean became for Sam, but he doesn't often voice it, though he acts it every day! But for him to actually say it... I can not believe this happened, love it!!!!
