For me as the final credits were scrolling the screen last night I gave out a WooHoo.........finally!!! the Supernatural I fell in love with was back....OMG it's wonderful............last season was a tough haul on my part sticking with it...............To the writers, producer and all you're back to what the fans fell in love with ............please stay the course
My theory: I suspect that the crazy blue eyed glowyness was Castiel attempting to manifest in his true angel form while still on the mortal plane of existence. Yanno, that true angel form that burns out people's eyeballs and causes human's heads to explode. My guess is that attempting to leave the host and manifest as true angel is a Big Deal.
Also...I really wish the escape clause for Cas had to do with his human host and not with some heaven scheming. Poor Jimmy Novak.
Where are people getting the notion Heaven is almost out of Angels? I've heard Castiel say a lot of Angels in his regiment were killed. But I'm sure that isn't the only regiment Heaven had.
Word of God (no pun intended) says that Chuck was intended to be God at the end of season 5. Actor Rob Benedict confirms that here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ni7uidj9Rx8
Now if that stays the case might be up for debate, because ultimately the writers left it open.
@Serenity - Metatron actually is an archangel in Judaism; there's an article about him on Wikipedia, if you're curious. The etymology of the name is ambiguous and unclear, and may possibly be a made-up word with no original meaning at all. Most of the angelic names in "Supernatural" are of Hebrew origin; The "el" suffix in many of them (Castiel, Gabriel, Michael, Uriel) means "God". A few names are of Latin origin (Lucifer, Virgil).
Castiel! Total badass taking on Crowley. Crowley is definitely one of the best bad guys they have come across. I really thought they said Megatron at first :P I;m interested to find out who this Metatron is. The name is unlike any of the other archangel names. And I loved the mention of Chuck, but I really hope he isn't actually dead. I would love for them to bring him back.
I'm not convinced that normal Castiel would be able to take the King of Hell. Even taking as a given that Crowley is a normal demon with the office of King, you'd like that in his new position he'd have access to artifacts and other enhancements that would boost his power levels. The fact that we're seeing new things in Castiel's full anger/angel mode makes me think there's something else going on with him, and another reason he stayed behind (maybe to bring some Levitations back?)
I am incredibly suspicious of Naomi. Something makes me doubt her story about an angelic incursion into Purgatory simply to rescue Castiel. It seems very unlikely that the angels would pay such a price in blood to save him when there are so few of them left already, especially when Castiel has *no memory* of being rescued. If it were simply an angelic incursion that saved him, why can't he remember it?
If he were plucked out by a different force altogether, however, maybe they'd want to keep it under wraps for their own reasons. Can anyone think of a Conspicuously Absent Omnipotent Being that keeps coming up again and again, despite being Conspicuously Absent?
Something felt off. I think that Crowley/Cas are both underused. What a waste of time for such amazing actors. As for angels, once they die don't they become higher beings for such sacrifices? Why is Chuck dead and Kevin replacing him as a prophet? Why is Naomi in charge in Heaven?
the first 4 eps of this season really bugged me, they were slow and the constant flashbacks were getting annoying. I'm so happy Cas is back, he is and has been one of my favorite characters since his arrival season 4. I never believed chuck was a prophet. Tbh I've considered him even being God at a few points... but Metatron seems more fitting with the whole book thing. the dreams were from God then, which means he's somewhere out there too.. maybe even close to Metatron. The whole Naiomi thing even made me question if God is still in heaven too, as Cas said He had never been to that part of heaven before... could God have been there all along? I know he's around, because Cas has been saved numerous times... where other angels have died and not come back, cas has more than once.. Someone is looking out for them.. and I'm hoping they finally go into that this season
Almost forgot. Sam putting Kevin and his mom under the watch of Garth is great. It probably means we will see Garth again this season. And as someone else said, it would be great to see Lucifer and Death again this season.
One word for this ep,,,wow! This seasons Crowley is terrifying. No more just dropping one liners here and there. And his face off with Castiel was great. The look on his face, a mix of fear, respect, and awe, when Castiel started "hulking up," was priceless. He knew right there that Castiel could lay him to waste. Having Castiel back is really good, and his reassuring Dean it wasn't his fault he stayed behind in Purgatory was nice. Their relationship is definitely on the mend. Don't know how long that will last though once Sam and Dean find out he's "ratting" on them to Naomi, even though it's not his fault.
Castiel wasn't showing a new power with Crowley, I think he was just mustering his old power, as best he could. Whatever it was it was awesome!
I'm so glad that Cas is back. I know Mrs. Tran is new to all this but really....calling a witch?! Duh! They didn't want to be around Sam and Dean but they trusted a witch who they met on Craigslist?!! So is Naomi there to help or hinder the boys?
@DEREK1314 - I like that theory, and it fits well. After all Chuck was writing the gospel of the Winchesters. It makes sense with his disappearance and why Kevin isn't writing all of this down. Chuck as Metatron, interesting. Oh, and Alan Rickman was the first thing to pop into my head at that point. Loved it!
I have a new theory. This weeks has nothing to do with Benny, instead it's about Bobby! Naomi is being very sneaky about keeping an eye on the Winchester's. Now that Bobby is official dead, there's every chance that his soul went to heaven. So after the Winchester's find whatever she wants or when she's ready to have them do whatever it is she wants them to do, I can just see her using Bobby's soul as leverage. Let the Winchester's do all the work then she gets to swoop in and get whatever she wants from them. After all, she didn't ask about the Prophet or the tablet or even Crowley, no she asked specifically about the Winchesters. She wants something from them.
Cas looked totally badass glowing like a champ....Im begining to wonder just how long Crowley will remain the "King Ov hell" ?? Will Lucifer ever be back in hell at some point ? Id love to see a showdown between Crowley and Lucifer as im sure it would be #Epic
on a side note,i hope Death makes an apperance this season as he is one of my favorites.
OMG!!! I Have been waiting on an ep like this since the season 5 finale. It was soooo good. I love the tran's. Tiger mama is hilarious. I felt so bad for poor kevin. Crowley was a BAMF this ep. I keep forgetting that with all the quippy one liners. Hells yeah he could be the big bad this season. Wayyy better than a leviathon big bad. CAS!!!!! I could wax poetic abt cas. Man he has never angeled up like that before. Hell he was even sppokier than his very first introduction. I think naomi is metatron. I think god intervened n saved cas. Naomi n god want the gates of hell closed so thet are gonna wrk with the winchesters to do it. N cas is probably the only angel they would trust. N the scenes between dean and cas were heartbreaking
maybe chuck is metatron, also who when they herad the name metatron thought of Alan Rickman in dogma.
Great episode! Caz and Dean bromance back in full force! I think the glowing eyes was just Caz displaying his powers/true self full throttle. Loved seeing the wings again.
I thought it was really cool when Cas went into superpower mode and actually started glowing (letting us see his shadow-wings again!). The look on Crowley's face showed just a bit of fear - he might be the King of Hell, but he's definitely not all-powerful. He really should show Castiel more respect; Cas is the angel that won't stay dead.
I also liked it when Cas went into the bathroom and came out not just cleaned up but wearing the suit again. "Better", indeed!
I wonder if Naomi the angel is the reason Cas can't draw on his full powers. Why is she so interested in the Winchesters? Anyone else think she's really Metatron?
I love the episode. Crowley was menacing, but I was also terribly impressed with Osric holding his own in those scenes with Mark - well done! The Tran's are funny and touching and a great addition to the show. Always nice to see Cas, welcome back! Of course Sam and Dean, kicking ass is what we want to see each and every week.
The final few scenes were great. Dean does take on all the responsibility of protecting the world, as he sees it no one else will. Right now I'm sure he's feeling that more strongly than ever because of what happened when he went to Purgatory: Kevin was grabbed by Crowley, Meg's gone, and Sam quit hunting. Now it's like he's trying to put the world back in order. It's a good reminder for him that he can't save everybody. Now I'm just concerned about Naomi, is she about to give them a task to do just that?
BEST episode continuing from season 7's finale and of this season as the first.
Finally. It may have taken a while, but it looks like Supernatural is returning to it's former strength.
