The appearance of Castiel is looming ever closer in the show Supernatural and I can’t help but think about what will happen. Now, my whole opinion (OPINION, that’s all, you’re free to your’s but please be polite and respect mine) of the Castiel thing was that he wasn’t a villain. As I’m sure many fans of the character himself have noticed, when he rebelled against heaven, died more than once, it was all for the sake of two human beings who treated him like a tool rather than a buddy half the time. Now please don’t mistake that statement as anger towards the boys. I love Sam and Dean, they are what pulled me into the show in the first place. But every now and again I’ve looked back on season five, season six and found that there wasn’t even the benefit of the doubt half the time. They used his abilities often, disregarded his feelings when it came to the deaths of his brothers/sisters (whom he had to kill), and when he said that there was a civil war in heaven, they constantly got angry at him, frustrated (granted, Sam for the better part of season 6 was soulless so I suppose he gets a pass) when he didn’t come down to help them immediately. I understand that this writing isn’t exactly organized and I apologize for that.
Listen, I do know that Sam and Dean (Dean seemingly more) loved Cas very much. However, like Bobby, I think that he was often taken for granted. I found Cas to have been in a very stuck situation, honestly, purgatory to me did seem like a valid option. I would rather Castiel be in charge than Raphael. And I understand things went wrong, I do, the whole be corrupted by power thing (even though a tiny amount of good came from it such as healing of mass sickness and disbanding the KKK) and the swallowing down leviathans, those both were the biggest kinks in the chain. But regardless, watching the whole situation, I understand how it happened, why Castiel was pushed so much into this mess and I am sympathetic to how he ended up.
And remember, I did say that Sam and Dean did love Cas and there were plenty of times that they showed it one way or another. Dean for example, did not want to believe that Castiel was working with Crowley no matter what, until there was no other plausible evidence to the contrary, when Cas himself gave it away.
This whole situation was made of gray. It’s hard to say if the Winchesters would’ve actually found another way for Cas to win a massive civil war that would’ve decided the utter fate of the Earth all for which he’d fought so hard to get rid of. I mean, Castiel went down this whole course for Sam and Dean. He didn’t want them to have to go through this again, to suffer further. The road to heaven is not paved with good intentions sure, but I would like to think that they count for something damn it. Castiel was trying. He wanted to be good, his whole plan was to save the world and, more closer to his heart, his friends.
With his return, I don’t know what will happen. I’m positive (since 7 is the season for character deaths) that he won’t last long. I’m sure that he’ll be around long enough to win forgiveness for the wrongs he did do (hoping anyway). I’m just hoping he doesn’t come back with amnesia, that would just…that would not be okay with me. I really hope that he’ll be around for season 8. I dislike when characters are killed just to make the audience squirm. I really don’t like that. Unless it furthers the plot in some way, I don’t see the need for character deaths just for emotional value (the last Harry Potter book for example) even if death is common (and in this case an elderly man with a sarcastic and jaded sense of reality) for that universe.
What do you guys think of all of this?
