Poor Crowley was so done the WHOLE episode, I almost forgot that he is the villain.
This explains why I never thought Cas was incompetent for spilling slush, cause holy hell we’re all humans.
Yep! I hope somewhere along the way everyone found at least one moment in Cas’s human story that they related to for good reasons… Whether it was something awkward and social or just having to start at the very bottom like everyone else… And he was proud of himself for doing it. I don’t understand anyone who still doesn’t like Cas after that. Clearly they’ve never had to clean a bathroom or stock shelves. I was never as zen about it as Cas was, and I was hardly a brat. Just fed up and poor. :P
Cas as Steve is honestly my favourite character in the whole show just because of things like that.
That is indeed the irony of Hannah. I don’t think she so much thinks it was free thought that lead to them doing the things they did, but rather the chaos of earth and the lack of order in heaven as a result. Naomi, for example, was tasked with reprogramming angels. After the archangels were all gone, thanks to things that happened on earth, and Cas did so much damage upstairs, after trying his best to protect humans over angels, she took it upon herself to reestablish order, even if that meant turning angels into nothing but glorified windup toys carrying out her every command. The way Hannah sees it, the chaos of earth is to blame for all of the bad things that have happened to heaven.
But what she doesn’t quite see is that her stringent desire for order is exactly what an angel like Naomi wanted as well. She is reacting to the chaos in a very similar fashion, by trying to force angels back into heaven, sometimes against their will. I’m hoping this is leading to her breaking the cycle however, and finally learning from Cas that there is a different way, and a better way, to try and fix heaven and help the angels find peace again.
This is a beautiful reply. What I think is important about Hannah is there is this irony in what she says but with this episode I’m pretty much certain she’s being set up for massive character development. That they’re laying out that she knows what bad leaders are when it comes to Heaven, and that she is trying to understand how they happened - how she can avoid that - her contradictory and ironic reaction is the thing which is being set up to be developed. I’m so happy about how she and Cas were framed with their over-the-car conversations and driving in the dark having their episode-closing thoughts moments since Sam and Dean aren’t available for the position… Now I’ve seen this episode I’m certain she’s being set up to stick around for a while and get some real character development. So if she seems weird and off with her views on humanity and angel leadership and what heaven should be about, then it’s only because she’s being set up to learn differently about everything. I just can’t imagine they’d have used her like they did this episode and not follow up on everything she was wrong about because a character being treated sympathetically but wrong about everything is a character who’s on their way to learning why. I’ve seen a couple of conversations comparing her to season 4 Cas even.
Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin’ away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me
