*Smacks Metatron upside the head with a Peterbilt*
I miss your sass, Gabriel.
can we please just acknowledge the fact that we have a typical Dean/Sam bro scene in the Impala but with Cas as driver and FREAKING GABE as shotgun basically talking daddy issues and self-loathing and how to save the world for dummies. The parallel with the boys is so unreal. This is so unreal.
Can Chuck please just return during the season finale and punch Metatron in the dick?

There will never come a day where I will not reblog this.
ya this is p much how I feel. I didn’t think that return was too bad but the show like forgetting eternally about Anna just annoys me
really, really, really forgot anna
like spn doesn’t have the best track record for remembering its dead in general
but come on you’d think in a season about fallen angels she’d at least get a mention
you’d think in an episode where metatron is waxing about we few, we happy few, angels with free will, anna might have crossed their minds
but did she *really* not cross their minds, or would it simply have been less effective/more convoluted to work in why metatron would’ve even thought to use her in last night’s ep since cas’s relationship w gabe seems more useful to metatron’s purposes, and since gabe’s very nature would make it easier to convince cas he was still alive than trying to convince cas that anna was still alive???
and like - i love me some anna milton. oh lord — and how. if there was a spin-off series just about her life i would buy the dvds sight unseen. i just think that (for what metatron was trying to do with cas in that ep) gabe would’ve been better for convincing cas accordingly, AND it would’ve been easier for metatron to get him to believe gabe was alive again because that’s a trick gabe himself has already pulled.
gabe was better for the “trick” aspect of it, absolutely.
but? relationship with cas? that’s anna all the way, dude.
here is a summary of gabriel and castiel’s canon relationship
GABRIEL: hiya, castiel!
CASTIEL: [glares while being silenced by duct tape]
anna and castiel on the other hand? there’s anna having already been castiel’s captain in the garrison. anna being the first angel to introduce the idea of angels falling and free will into the show. castiel saying, point blank, to anna in season four, “I don’t know what to do. Tell me what to do.”
anna and castiel’s shared camaraderie over both having been on the run from heaven, on taking down uriel together, on both knowing fear and confusion that was allegedly unprecedented in angel kind, on their however many millenia as warriors-in-arms together.
castiel and gabriel barely have a relationship. castiel and anna have a rich one.
gabe wasn’t brought back because he was the perfect angel to fill the role — it was because he was a fan favourite, and they found a way to work him back into the story, so they did. i have exactly zero illusions that they even considered the possibilityof it being anna in the writers room.
i actually dug the gabriel appearance and was pleasantly surprised by how well i thought it worked because tbh, i honestly didn’t think they could gracefully give him a return that wouldn’t cheapen his death (not to mention wondering how, or if, they would attempt to reconcile actual gabriel with fanon gabriel) but
imagine it had been anna “it’s time to choose for yourself” milton
Dean: “Dammit Cas, we can fix this!”
Castiel: “Dean, it’s not broken!”
Castiel: “Dammit, Dean…”

that douchebag gave me fucking shivers aknowledging me like that
IT’S LOOKING AT ME
Gabriel didn’t start acting like Gabriel until Castiel broke the script. He didn’t become physically expressive, he didn’t say things right, until he was left to his own devices. Wouldn’t that make this part genuine? I mean…Metatron can’t write Gabriel for shit.
The dialogue wasn’t too bad, but his mannerisms were definitely off.
"He thinks you’re just a scared little boy who’s afraid to be on his own because daddy never loved him enough. and he’s right, isn’t he? Right to think that you are a coward? A sad, clingy, needy, pathetic bottom feeder who cannot even take care of himself. Who would rather drag everyone through the mud than be alone. Who would let everyone around him die!"
So I found this quote on tumblr and reading it the second time around it made me stop and think. At first it seems like he’s just trying to be a douche, to manipulate Dean into being angry enough to kill him.
But what he says to Dean isn’t true, nor is it something that particularly affected Dean. Not in the way Gadreel hoped, at least. It didn’t push him over the edge. It just made him a little ticked.Gadreel isn’t Metatron. He doesn’t have that talent of knowing exactly what to say to get the reaction he wants. So where did Gadreel get the idea that this would be the worst thing to say?
I think the first part was things he picked up from Sam’s memories, yes. But I think as it went on it changed into something else.
Because this is him.
He’s scared, he’s lonely, his Father abandoned him when he failed him. He’s sad, clingy, needy, pathetic. He can’t take care of himself. He would rather drag everyone through the mud, would rather slaughter dozens of his siblings, than be alone again.
The words he chooses are things that would hurt him.
And Dean knows it. Dean isn’t as affected as Gadreel wants him to be because Dean can see that he isn’t just being a dick for the sake of douchery. Dean can see that he’s desperate.
Is that guilt I see there in all that resignation?
Look at how shiny his eyes are. Look at the tears building up there. I dare you to tell me this isn’t personally affecting him.
Metatron is manipulative. Gadreel is just scared.
