Funny you should mention Molotov, because in both cases (her & Hatred), they have attempted to form a bond with Hank rather than Dean. 'Course, while Brock was mainly there to help with the whole bodyguarding thing, the Ventures never really realised how important he was to their social lives - without him, Master Billy Quizboy would never have been left in Pete White's care, Jonas Jr. wouldn't have been removed and would probably have just pulled a chest-burster on Rusty, Monarch would have actually succeeded in killing them all and then logically taken his own life out of boredom...he's a real integral puzzle piece!
Oh, and just one thing more: I think there's a slow-burning hidden plot in this new season that indicates that Dean is going to grow up to be a supervillain. Consider the following:
Episode 1: Hitler the Dog, the incarnation of all things Evil and reincarnation of Hitler, turns out to love and take a shining to Dean immediately upon meeting him, despite absolutely despising everyone else.
Episode 3: A version of Dean who ages naturally, despite being additionally insane and mentally scarred, becomes evil and vindictive with only a small amount of encouragement.
Episode 5: Not only does Bowie see Dean as the more rightful heir to the Guild than his older, more experienced, intelligent and vindictive father, but when Dean dubs him the new Sovereign, the words just come completely natural as he says them.
This development would also correlate with the deterioration of the Venture legacy, Col. Venture being a great scientist and inspirational character, Dr. Jonas Venture being a great scientist but a terrible egomaniac, Dr. Thaddeus Venture being a failed scientist and a partially failed human being, and then...Dr. Dean Venture...a complete failure as a human being?
