So far, it is probably fair to say that Castiel on “Supernatural” season 9 is probably not having the best experience possible as a human. Just think about it for a minute. We have seen the character be hunted down by just about every other angel in existence, be homeless, and right when it looks like he has found a woman who wants to both feed him and fornicate with him (random combination, we know), she ends up being a killer in disguise. Tragic, really, though not as tragic as him being told that he can’t stay with Sam and Dean at the Men of Letters headquarters.
So what is all of this going to lead to? Apparently, a little something known as Castiel finding his own employment elsewhere. We are going to see him take up a career on the episode called “Heaven Can’t Wait” airing on November 12, though this career is certainly not something that most people strive for. Take a look at the full synopsis below:
“Castiel (Misha Collins) gets a job at a Gas-N-Sip and actually starts to enjoy life as a human. A headline in the local newspaper about some disappearances in the area catches his eye, so he calls Dean (Jensen Ackles) to help him investigate the case. Dean knows he needs to keep Sam/Ezekiel (Jared Padaleck) away from Castiel, so he tells Sam that he and Kevin (guest star Osric Chau) need to stay and work with Crowley to decipher the tablet. Crowley agrees to help Sam and Kevin but in return he wants one phone call to hell.”
Okay, so we first of all do have to comment on how ridiculously awesome it sounds seeing Castiel having to put up with the cast of crazy people that traditionally comes into a gas station on a daily basis. If he wants to really get a good sense of humanity, this is going to be the place in which to do so.
As for the rest of this episode, we are personally reminded of the Joker wanting his phone call in “The Dark Knight” when we think about Crowley trying to bargain for anything right now. Of course, it is also still worth nothing that Ezekiel will be around in Sam’s brain still … which is both a good and bad thing in that we’re enjoying it for now, but we want to see Sam back to actually being Sam by midseason at the latest.
