Supernatural Scoop: Misha Collins Spills on Castiel's Return from Purgatory

at . Comments

Cas is back! He was briefly seen in purgatory with Dean, but was left behind when Dean and Benny escaped. On tonight's Supernatural, though, our favorite angel mysteriously returns to Earth.

On a recent visit to the Supernatural set in Vancouver (trip provided by Warner Bros. TV), Misha Collins talked about both Cas' time in purgatory and what is waiting for him when he gets out....

How is Castiel's attitude a different this season because of his experiences in purgatory?
I think that Cas’ experiences in purgatory are actually shaped by everything that has come before. Purgatory for him I think is a kind of penance, which actually plays out a little bit as the season unfolds but yeah, it’s a tough place for Cas. It’s actually really tough and I think that he kind of feels like he deserves that.

It’s been a rough year down in purgatory. What’s Cas’ mental state going to be like?
I think we’re seeing a Cas that’s actually kind of closer to the Cas in seasons four and five. Somehow the process of paying that penance has regained a bit of his innocence and all of his sanity. His screws are not nearly as loose as they were last year.

What kind of powers will Cas have this season?
When Cas comes out of purgatory, he is a bit diminished, but then seems to regain his powers and can do things that we didn’t previously know that he could do, like transport other people into other people’s heads. It worked pretty good.

Does Cas have any allies other than Sam and Dean at this point?
No, no. There are people trying to align themselves with him but I don’t think they’re genuine allies.

Sam and Dean are on a quest with Kevin to find the tablet of God, is that something that Cas will be involved with?
I think that that’s sort of the pivotal object of the season, that’s what everyone is after from, you know, every realm, and Cas is definitely involved in that process and caught in the crossfire.

So love that Cas is back to "his normal" self. I do feel something is missing. If they do kill Misha off, then move him to Arrow. What a great actor!


Castiel is back and the show is suddenly much better! Without Cas it's not Supernatural anymore. I hope we will see a lot of him. Misha Collins is a great actor and from the preview on next episode I've just seen I'm going to be howling with laughter just like during Changing Channels :)


Ugh. Castiel is so overrated.


I will enjoy having Cas back but I will most be looking for the profound bond between Dean and Cas brought back. It's what makes the show interesting. Add Benny to the mix and the show would really become fun to watch.


I'm loving this new season and I really want that Cas is helping the brothers, they need help from true friends.xD


I like the direction Jeremy Carver is taking the show.


I can't wait for Cas's return! Yeah! My next wish is to hopefully see Sam, Dean, Benny, Cas and Amelia all brought together in the present for some reason. I think it could be really interesting.


I'm glad Castiel is back, I just wish we could see more of Sam and what's really going on with him. And I want more Sam&Cas scenes.


Oh Yeah! I hope the writers gave him enough lines, because I can't get enough of Cas, our favorite angel!
