Out of character?

OK so when Anna was just a pretty girl in trouble I could understand the winchester boy's protection and Dean's lust. But after she is revealed to be non-human attitudes should have changed. Dean hates Demons no matter what body they inhabit. Not only did he believe her totally, he didn't even question her use of that body- what is a fallen angel if not a demon! Sam was just as out of character as he has always taken the side of good without question. Hurt by the distrust of the angels I can understand but not enough to change his trust in God's will. First he accepts Ruby on his side then he defends this fallen angel. I prefered the contrast of the one with the demon blood (Sam) having the most faith.

But her body was human - she was born to human parents after her fall from grace. She grew up human, not even knowing that she had once been an angel. She didn't have her grace - for all intents and purposes she was human, despite what she once was. She was not inhabiting the body - she truyly was Anna, simply human. Therefore, Sam and Dean felt obligated to protect her. I do agree that Sam has always had the strongest faith and he has been really quick to doubt that lately.

Fallen angel does not equal to demon. Some angels fall while some are pushed ;)
As I stated in a previous comment: Anna isn't a fallen angel like Lucifer or Azazel (who are angels turned bad). It's more likely that she excercised her free will, choosing to become a human, pretty much like in the movie 'City of Angels'. And Castiel is on the verge of following Anna's footsteps. I'm OK with that, however I got really disappointed at the lame "angel juice" deal. Come on, grace once lost can't be regained!
And I don't get Ruby at all, I don't mean the actress who portrays her, it's the whole character. Last season she appeared from nowhere offering weapons to kill demons. Where is the sense in that? Sometimes I feel she was written to show that poor Sam is getting some unpaid sex. Because we already know Dean doesn't care whether it's paid or not :D

Well said sonias.
Also Dean didn't like Ruby mostly cause she was a witch turned demon. I'd like to think Dean sort of understands demons, since he went to hell and almost became one. He just didn't trust witches and I think he's looking at her differently.
And as sonias said Anna isn't a demon, she a fallen angel. Just because one falls doesn't mean she went "dark side". Although, I have to agree with the author on that the grace was kind of stupid and predictable.

I didn't have any initial problems with Dean's acceptance of Ruby other than that I still feel like he shouldn't trust her. But I don't think Dean will ever trust her the way Sam does, so I'm okay with it.
However, I for one did not like the escalation of Dean and the angel's relations. I mean, I really didn't see any initial attraction between them, so when I saw the previews for the last episode I was shocked. Especially since Anna's like I've got one more night on earth until I either die or become a sucky angel again. Then Dean's just all emotionally tortured and just wants to make the pain stop. So what do they do? They have sex. Some great solution. I felt like this scene was completely unnecessary. There was more of an emotional connection with Sam & Ruby than there was with Dean and this angel. Which sucks because it's the first time we see sex in the beloved Impala and its with some random chick who doesn't mean anything. Pretty much the only cool thing Dean could take away from this would be a bright shining new notch on his bedpost. Bragging rights about fucking an angel. I mean an ANGEL! That's pretty damn cool. I guess in the end, I would have liked it more if there had been some emotional connection between the two, and not just two people looking for a way to kill time. I miss the old, untortured Dean. You know, the one who had constant one-night stands out of the joy of it, not out of the need to escape pain. :(
