Warning: spoilers forward for the “Persistence” episode of Supernatural Season 13.
Season 12 of Supernatural got here to a heartbreaking conclusion again in Might when the finale ended with the death of Castiel. It wasn’t the primary time that poor Cas died in an episode of Supernatural, but it surely did appear fairly last, as he was stabbed by way of the again by Lucifer with an angel blade. His wings have been even burnt into the bottom in the identical method as many angels who died earlier than him on the sequence. Mainly, Castiel appeared actually, actually, actually useless this time around.
Season 13 to date has had the Winchester boys mourning Cas and evidently fairly satisfied that their angel pal would not be coming again this time. Their arms are additionally full with Lucifer’s nephilim son Jack within the combine. Sam is decided to assist Jack whereas Dean is satisfied that Jack is sure to show evil. For his half, Jack thinks of Castiel as his father fairly than Lucifer, as Kelly got here to belief and depend on Cas whereas they have been on the run collectively.
Sam and Dean have been at odds sufficient in “Persistence” that they went their separate methods, with Dean becoming a member of Jody in setting up her spinoff and Sam staying behind on the bunker to attempt to prepare Jack. The brothers received into an enormous combat on the finish when Dean as soon as once more lashed out that Castiel would possibly nonetheless be alive if not for Jack current. Jack overheard the combat and Dean’s offended level about Castiel, which led him to seemingly use his powers to find… nicely, Castiel.
After Jack mentioned his identify, Castiel wakened on what appeared to be a darkish flooring, carrying his iconic trench coat and looking out mighty confused. He additionally did not appear notably worse for the damage, though he wasn’t on display screen lengthy sufficient to get take a look at him. What feels protected to say is that Jack can be instrumental in bringing Cas again from wherever he’s.
A giant query that is still is how Cas might really come again. Angels in Supernatural do not have souls, they usually do not go to a different aircraft of existence once they die. Except they rating punishment resurrections that deliver them again time and time once more, angels have a tendency to simply be gone as soon as they die. Maybe Jack is highly effective sufficient that his attachment to Castiel saved Cas in a void of types between life and nothingness. Cas undoubtedly appeared to be alone, which might make sense if he is nonetheless round due to a newborn nephilim.
We can also’t say simply how Jack would possibly have the ability to deliver Cas again from the place he’s now. It is unlikely that Supernatural will preserve Cas separated from the remainder of the principle forged for too lengthy. We do know that Castiel may have a part to play within the Scooby-Doo crossover, and that crossover could occur resulting from Jack using his powers. Who is aware of? Possibly the Winchester boys will cross paths with Castiel in Scooby-Doo land and yank him again to the true world after they escape animation. Stranger issues have occurred on Supernatural.
We’ll have to attend and see. New episodes of Supernatural air on Thursdays at eight p.m. ET on The CW.
