Update: In hilarious news, we learned just half an hour after publishing this that Collins has been upped to a series regular for season 9.
We know that it has felt like ages since Misha Collins has been on a new episode of “Supernatural,” and while we know that he will be returning as Castiel in the near future to the show, this does not really make the waiting process any easier. Will hearing some discussion about the character ease the pain? Possibly … at least until you hear what Jared Padalecki actually says about whether or not Sam would hypothetically banish Cas from the world for the greater good.
This question (asked by Zap2It to Padalecki) stems from the fact that in addition to the tablet Sam and Dean are hoping to use to shut away all demons from the world, there is also one that does the same thing to angels. So if Sam was informed of this, would he still make the move at Castiel’s expense? It sure sounds like it based on the answer:
“I absolutely think the boys would sacrifice Castiel to get rid of the angels … I think they are, not one-track minded, but goal-oriented enough to where you’ve seen them sacrifice themselves or others to try and accomplish a bigger objective … I feel like they would do it. I could be wrong, but I feel like they would do it.”
As for whether or not we will see this decision arise during this season, that is still a worth question. Depending on how they frame it the tablet could set up a nice endgame for the series, and we honestly don’t want to see the show get to the point where Castiel’s life could be in jeopardy (again) for a while. After all, there are only so many times you can bring a guy back before you start to even cause some viewers here to stop suspending belief
Do you think that Castiel could be in trouble before the end of this season? If you want to watch a promo for Wednesday night’s “Supernatural,” you can do so by heading on over to the link here.
