A post on IMDb gave me my inspiration today. Since angels have appeared on this show since the beginning of season 4, how do we see them, and how do we really feel about them? Since Jeremy has taken over the helm this season, they appear prominent once again, in fact even more so. Are they a real turn on, or off now since they have been around for some time. Are they becoming stale? Do we need a new being to wow us?
As Dean was one cool cookie who didn’t believe in angels has in fact found a best friend in one. We now how skeptical he was when first introduced to Cas in that very barn. Sam being the more religious brother funnily enough doesn’t appear to bond as well with Cas. Why is this? Do we no the real reason why Sam has never fully bonded with Cas. Is it because of the demon blood fiasco or something much deeper, that Cas finds it much harder to bond with Castiel. Is there something in Dean where Cas can relate and find a connection, much more than he can with Sam? I guess it wouldn’t be cool to have two brothers circling Cas for his affections continuously. But I sense Cas now has much respect for Sam, but is he equal in Castiels affections as Dean appears to be.
I still feel Cas and Sam are very similar, as my article suggested in my sister blog, Supernaturally Devoted. Perhaps the writers are trying to find a smooth transition to finally bring these to buddies together, in a mutual way. Cas isn’t the only angel in the garrison, so how do we really feel about these mystical beings who are so old, and very holy. Does our show treat angels in the way we expect angels to be. Quote ‘Sam to Uriel my brother was right about you, you are Dicks.’ So why have our writers in particular created angels to appear so annoying, and look down on gods creations, humans? What do they find so awful, in human’s that they find it so hard to walk among us frequently?
They are written and seen by us as Angels killing people, Angels lying, Angels killing other Angels, Angels making a government and making their own orders. You don’t get to be an Angel by doing un-holy crap like that. These guys are supposed to be people humans look up to, and respect. But I sense we are not supposed to respect them? How did Kripke originally see angels, considering he never wanted to introduce them in the first place. So why have they stayed so long? Is it because of their overall power, their mystique and intrigue. Why do we fall for their charms, if we are supposed to hate them so much. These fictional angels really don’t like humans, and Uriel often quoted horrible words to amuse himself, at our expense. So why are we so drawn to them. And why was the only real decent angel turned bad to follow suit, when he himself had so many doubts. Why did he survive. Was he in fact influenced by Dean all along? After all he had lived and viewed the boys before they had met. So are the boys more connected to angels ? I no now that I doubt very much they will become angels themselves. But there is something in me, that particularly with being vessels they both have some higher purpose?
So Bella would love to no how you see our ‘beloved’ or ‘nasty’ little being’s. How you interpret the writers, writing over them. How also do you see the angels are wired, (programmed) do they in fact hold a very special key into the boys lives, since they were the ones who bought John and Mary together in the first place. Is there more to these angels than we first ever thought. And what do we really no about the angels that we didn’t no from the start of Season 4. How much will we get to know and understand about them in the future? Are angels in fact any better or worse than demons. We say how evil they are, but haven’t noticed overly, how bad the angels are in comparison. So type away little ones and let your creative juices flow. Look forward in hearing from any newbies too, don’t by shy, we’d love to hear from you too.
