Victor

Character Analysis

Victor seems to be around to illustrate the way Dean makes friends with everyone, regardless of barriers like language. Sal has a vision that Dean can communicate with Victor by psychic understanding, words aren’t even necessary. While Sal and Stan also meet Victor, it is Dean that forms a special bond, talking to him while the others chill out at the bathhouse.
