‘SUPERNATURAL’: REDEMPTION FOR CAS?
Nothing makes me feel more giddy inside than to type, “So, I was hanging out with the cast of Supernatural the other day…” But it’s TRUE! Comic-Con was truly a meat-market… of scoop. (Gutter brains!) And while I detailed much of it in my wrap-up of the gang’s Comic-Con panel (You read that… right?) I definitely saved a bit for you, Roomies!
This bit comes from Misha Collins, the unangelic former-angel-turned-God, who explained to a roundtable of reporters that he has hope for Castiel’s redemption this season — even though he has yet to read of anything promising in the scripts so far. “Having lived with him for the last three years, Cas definitely has a soft spot in my heart,” he said. “I have an affection for the character, and I would like to see him redeemed somehow. I hope that happens for Cas. I don’t know how much — or if that’s going to happen. But I hope so. Because I kind of like the guy.” Um, so do we. (I think…) But Cas’ “drunk with power” persona won’t get a great reception from those other guys we happen to like on the show, Collins said.
“[Sam and Dean] are being kind of a pain in the ass, honestly. They need to be whipped into shape a little bit, in my humble opinion,” he said, with a hint of humor in his voice. “It’s hard to talk about without ruining it for you. But I sort of start the season off letting sleeping dogs lie with them because they are completely powerless and ineffectual against me. Of course, they end up being a thorn in my side — as they always tend to do.”
As for the body count in the first three scripts (1, 2, and 4 are the ones he’s received so far) Collins says it’s high. “Definitely in the thousands; I don’t think in the millions, but I could be wrong… but it’s definitely not at or near zero.” Who’s joining me Sept. 23?
