Supernatural season 7
In Supernatural season 7, Sam and Dean Winchester will have to deal with the fact that their angel friend, Castiel, is now the “new God,” and having all that power is definitely not a good thing.
Sera Gamble revealed:
“We had everyone on the writing staff watch Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. [Executive producer] Bob [Singer], [series creator] Eric [Kripke] and I were really hungry to capture some of that cowboy, outlaw spirit for Sam and Dean [next season].” Now that sounds like one fun theme.
Based on this and the Supernatural spoilers about what’s coming up for the Winchesters next season, it’s no surprise that the next logical thought is that Sam and Dean will be on the run from Castiel, but Gamble has hinted at possible redemption for the once-Angel, now-God: “I would consider Cas, in the last few minutes of the finale, to have been transformed. We try to be realistic about the fact that people on this show do cross lines that can’t be uncrossed. But we examine those things in terms of Sam and Dean. They have a tremendous capacity to move forward. We always look for the chance to have redemption.” It does seem pretty hard to come back from becoming the new God and telling your (possibly now former) friends that you’re not family and if they don’t “profess their love” for you, you’ll destroy them.
Is there hope for Castiel? He has already killed Balthazar and Raphael (and the parallel to Lucifer killing Castiel with a snap of the fingers was chilling) and has stated he has plans for Crowley and Raphael’s followers. What will Castiel have done when season 7 begins? When will season 7 begin? Seasons 2 and 5 picked up right where 1 and 4 ended, while there were time jumps between seasons 2 and 3, 3 and 4, and the biggest jump (one year) between 5 and 6. How much more will Castiel have done in his new form? Will the Winchesters be able to figure out how to stop him – whether that’s killing him or getting rid of all that power he now has? If they have to resort to killing him, what can kill him? The angel blade obviously has no effect anymore, as Sam, Dean, and Bobby learned in the last minutes of “The Man Who Knew Too Much.”
