Spoiler Alert! Supernatural Season 12 – Castiel-Centric Episode


Supernatural is an American fantasy television series created by Eric Kripke. Starring Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles as two brothers following their father’s footsteps as “hunters” fighting evil supernatural beings of many kinds including demons, zombies and gods that roam around the earth.

The show first started on September 13, 2005 with the pilot viewed by an estimated 5.69 million viewers. Since than it has been 11 years these hunters have been entertaining us alongside angels and demons.

One particular angel Castiel played by Misha Collins has been helping Winchester brothers save earth and humanity throughout the series. After long, we will yet again have an episode all about him.

It’s been quite a while since Castiel has had a scene pretty much himself. The last time was in season 6 scene “The Man Who Would be King,” which was told from Castiel’s point of view. In the scene, Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) discovered that their holy messenger companion was in cahoots with Crowley (Mark Sheppard). Castiel disclosed the occasions prompting his impossible organization with the ruler of damnation, asking the viewers what they would have done in the event that they were in his place.


In any case, after season 6, Collins had been consigned to a visitor star, and Castiel’s appearances had gotten to be less. Notwithstanding when Collins returned as a standard cast in season 9, Castiel didn’t show up in the same number of scenes as his fans would have loved. As a few faultfinders have noted too, he was dealt with as a nonessential character.

That would change in season 12, as indicated by Dabb. As per the long-lasting author, the show will be more individual.

“It’s less Sam and Dean having to go up against one enemy and it’s more Sam and Dean, especially as the season progresses, feeling they’re surrounded by enemies, some of whom may be people they have viewed as allies up until this point,” Dabb told the publication.

If there’s one lesson that fans have learnt in the previous seasons, it’s that a supporting character is given more airtime as usual if that character would either die or turn to the other side. In Castiel’s case, he was given one whole episode to air out his thoughts and motives before he was revealed to be the bad guy of the season. And as Castiel is given another episode about himself in season 12, Castiel fans are justifiably worried that one of the allies who would turn out to be enemies would be the lovably naïve angel.


It appears the fallen holy messenger’s association with different characters would be investigated too. At the San Diego Comic Con 2016 in July, Dabb said Castiel would have a “particular reaction” to Mary Winchester (Sam Smith), Sam and Dean’s recently revived mother. Collins included that there would intrigue “minimal element” amongst Mary and Castiel on the grounds that they are both considered outcasts.


Supernatural” season 12 will be back on Oct. 13 on The CW in the US.
