* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In retrospective, Dean looks more immature in his first appearance than he was portrayed later. For instance, he breaks into Sam's apartment, assaults him in the dark to test his practice, flirts briefly with Jessica, and only then reveals that he came because their father went missing. Later Dean takes those things seriously and would directly tell Sam what is going on.
