The great news for Castiel on “Supernatural” is that after long hoping that he was going to find a way to get his powers back, the character is going to get precisely what he asked for moving forward. However, this is where we turn to the bad news: He’s not out of the woods just yet. As a matter of fact, him having his abilities back could ultimately mean more trouble for him as he struggles to figure out just what his place in this world is going to be.
Speaking in a new interview to TVLine, showrunner Jeremy Carver does his part to lay out what will be the Castiel crisis moving forward:
“[Castiel will find] himself in the angelic fray more than ever and at a point of decision he never considered a few short months ago. It’s going to be a little of a be-careful-what-you-wish-for [situation].”
On the standpoint of one of the other angels out there, Gadreel is going to find himself in a tricky position now that he has seemingly accepted his position to be Metatron’s new minion-of-sorts. While it may have looked at first like a great idea in theory to be a part of this operation, it is going to end up having much more significant consequences than he first realized. Jared Padalecki is going to be busy throughout the second part of the season, in between trying to tackle this and also touching on the issue of whether or not Sam is still in there.
As for a bonus scoop, there are going to be some beloved characters from the past who turn up again on the show … but Carver is being very tight-lipped on that for now.
