‘Supernatural’ season 8 spoilers: Misha Collins talks Castiel’s purgatory fate

Is Castiel really dead after his time in purgatory with Dean? This is something that at the moment is not entirely clear. During the season premiere of “Supernatural” earlier this month, we learned via Dean that he seemingly did not make it out alive. The key word here? “Seemingly,” as Dean did not actually watch Cas pass away. With that in mind, you can still make the argument here that anything is possible, and this character may still in fact be alive.

When it comes to this very subject, Misha Collins of course had quite a bit to say about what is coming up for him this season, especially as he gets closer to playing a major role in the storyline. In an interview with The Huffington Post, he did his best to explain a little bit why Dean is being so noncommittal when it comes to just what happened to him … mostly because he didn’t actually see it:

“I think that Dean doesn’t know the full story. So I think it’s more than that Dean is being cagey; he doesn’t know the whole story, and I think that he also feels some guilt about what happened. And Dean deals with guilt in a very childish manner.”

We are seeing a little bit of how Dean deals with this guilt this season courtesy of something else: how he is acting when it comes to Benny, who is also out in the real world along with Dean already. Will Cas turn up there, as well? All you have to do to find out more information on this subject is head over here.
