After an uneven seventh season, the chips are setting out to fall into place for a fairly exciting finale. An already crowded chess board became even a lot of jam-packed in “Reading is Fundamental” with the introduction of Kevin Tran, an AP student-turned-prophet who served an important perform in Sam and Dean’s quest to require down Dick. Chuck Shurley was the last prophet the Winchesters restricted and you’ll hear the lingering frustration in Dean’s voice when he’s told Kevin is additionally a prophet. however their awkward “get to understand you” section is ultimately worthwhile, as Kevin interprets the Word of God on the pill Sam and Dean snatched within the previous episode. the interpretation revealed how the Leviathans is killed – a method that begins with taking Castiel’s blood and can continue within the final 2 episodes.
What happens when the devil scrambles your brain?
We’ve seen many completely different variations of Castiel throughout the series however his new persona baffles me. He appeared a lot of carefree and another time unaware of the nuances that comprise human behavior. He was having Dean pull his finger, talking regarding cat penises and usually acting like he’d suffered some serious brain harm. I can’t place a finger on what the writers were going for together with his new temperament and also the motivation behind it absolutely was slightly murky. I liked the reason of how Castiel solely saw Lucifer for a brief time as a result of that hallucination belonged to Sam and I’m glad the angel was forced to subsume the guilt that came from his stint as God. Castiel’s time within the mental hospital seems to possess freed him from all the burdens and convictions he’s accumulated since the fourth season. i suppose we’ve got a precedent for this version of Castiel – the hippy, drug-addicted incarnation from season 5’s “The finish.”
Castiel’s awakening tied into the Kevin’s rebirth as a prophet in that each were triggered by Sam and Dean uncovering God’s Word. There was lots happening when the four characters and Meg finally got along, beginning with the arrival of angels from Castiel’s garrison who were determined to require Kevin into the desert where he may study the word off from everybody. Dean banished the angels and also the cluster retreated to Rufus’ cabin to distance themselves from the angels, Leviathans and demons. Meg killed some demons however not before revealing that she was waiting to require Castiel to Crowley. Now, Meg could’ve been lying to the demons she killed. She might need each intention of using Castiel’s power to assist kill Crowley. Then again, her master arrange may well be to induce back in Crowley’s smart graces by bringing him Castiel, who as she properly discovered, betrayed Crowley. This whole “trust a demon” storyline didn’t end up too well for Sam and Dean at the top of season four and the maximum amount as i need to believe Meg has noble intentions, this show has taught me that demons are untrustworthy, selfish creatures.
