Jensen Ackles speaking to fans at the SDCC14 Supernatural Signing.


"There are certain sparks and insinuations that come up early on in the season."

So I mean he has to be talking about Cas’ relationship with Hannah, yeah? Which could be sort of interesting, especially if it’s kept rather subtextual as he’s implying, especially in the way that it might contrast and/or parallel with his relationship with Dean, especially with Cas trying so hard to save him early on…

I think Misha brought up a really good point in this interview, because even when we talk about human Cas, Cas is and always will be an angel. But what he’s experienced on his journey has taught him so much, has changed him so much, that he knows what it’s like to be “human”, and wouldn’t at all have a problem living on Earth amongst other humans, or with one in particular.

I am reminded of the angels in Captives who lived peacefully amongst humans, who learned to adapt and change and grow. Who learned that there’s more to life than Heavenly battles and serving an absent God. You will never convince me they gave Cas all that pop culture knowledge just for laughs, he was given that for a reason. While he may not have context for those references, it allows him to relate to Dean and Sam more than ever. It will allow him to, if he so chooses (and I believe he will), live life on Earth with them more easily.

I really do feel like more than anything this season will be about finding balance. Because to Cas, being an angel has been bloody and tragic and violent, and while being human wasn’t much better, I do think, had Dean not kicked him out in 9x03, he would have stayed with them, and remained “human” by choice. But…he is an angel, and I guess some time last season I shifted my focus from wanting Cas to choose being “human”, to wanting Cas to choose himself and what is truly best for him. Hiding from Heaven, or from who he is, does not fix the problem after all.

I think more than anything he wants to be an angel, but have that mean something that it never has before. He can have grace and powers and still choose a life amongst the humanity, and the human lbr, that he loves more than anything. I think focusing more on Cas on Earth, instead of Cas waging war in or on Heaven, is going to be a fascinating look into what it is he truly wants. And if his sole mission before he dies is saving the life of one human, I think we have our answer already…

I think when he said at the end of S09 that he wants to be ‘an angel’ it was him flip-flopping between extremes, like the boys do. The whole - you’re either in or you’re out, all or nothing mentality. Like Sam felt he had to leave hunting and the supernatural completely in order to be with Amelia and leave Amelia in order to hunt, and Dean was the same with Lisa (although he at least kinda TRIED the balancing thing with Lisa, though unfortunately it wasn’t right with Lisa).

So yeah - Cas is going through the same issue, thinking he either has to be 100% human and disconnected from the supernatural/angels completely, or 100% angel and embrace angel mojo even if it kills him and be a leader even if he hates the job etc.

So, yes, basically my point is - AGREE WITH THE ABOVE, ultimately. Cas, like Sam and Dean, needs to find a MIDDLE GROUND, a BALANCE. He needs to learn he CAN ‘be an angel,’ but he can live among humanity, live as a human, AS WELL.  

And I think that is what the narrative is working towards.

This was theorised by others a few seasons back, I think, and I agreed then. But then last season changed my mind cos I felt perhaps we were heading towards Cas choosing to be human after all. But now I’m back on this ‘best of both worlds’ theory - Cas living as a human without having to be 100% assimilated into human culture, as it were.

Yes! Actually I wrote a bit about the need for balance as it relates to Sam mostly recently, but I think it’s something that Sam, Dean, AND Cas all have to learn to find this season. They’ve all been fighting for so long between the extremes and it never works, and I am so excited to see if they are able to find at least some hope for middle ground in season 10.

Oh my goodness, wait, can we please talk about this:

Cas still obviously cares about Dean very much, because he’s basically…his primary mission is to get Dean cured of being a demon, or fixing him. But at the same time, Cas is determined not to let a demon Dean roam the Earth. So if it comes to it, Cas is willing to kill demon Dean if human Dean can’t be rescued. (x)

And the major arc/ending of Buffy, Season 2, wherein Buffy must accept the man she loves is gone, a demon walks in his place and ultimately, she must kill him?

Of course, if Cas ends up having to kill Dean just as Dean regains his humanity, in order to close the gates of Hell, I will sob wildly, for years. Years.

Wait what is this about the gates of hell? i think I missed something wrt that?

Anyways YES this is the tropiest of romantic tropes tbh. I’m just dying to see their initial confrontation, if there is one, because Cas has already given SO MUCH to save and protect Dean above all else, I have to imagine things are going to get pretty bad for him to even consider killing Dean a viable option.

but also I’m wondering if he means someone from further back? He sort of makes it sounds that way? IDK I’m putting my money on Rowena being Crowley’s mother regardless, but it sounds to me like whoever is being spoken of here is from way back???
