A thread posted today read. I have been reading articles about this theory and I think there is some possibility to it, one of the theory’s he is Samael a Archangel see below:
My head still is in the same position that I still believe that Crowley is something more than the King of Hell? I had my suspicions for a long time that he could have been a Fallen Angel, yes I have these words stamped on my forehead Fallen Angels. I guess its seeing all those angels falling in the finale. My original theory began to wonder and think about teleportation and was this trick just hired out to the king of hell, that it was a power bestowed on him when he reached a certain rank/status. But then someone raised an important point about crossroads demons also teleporting. Also that angels and demons also share the same abilities. So if the show decides to say that Crowley can teleport a whole lot of this story won’t make any sense. The other piece I picked up on was that Bobby summoned Crowley’s son, who said his father doesn’t have a soul as he sold it. Ruby also stated to Dean that all demons were human once but again she could have been lying, as we know damn fine well that demons do.
The second of the tumblr articles gives more detail about Crowley’s abilities and one reason that sprung in my mind when I read it was In 6 x 08 Crowley touches Sam’s hand with just his finger, leaving a burn that disappears with a snap. Also, Crowley healed Bobby’s legs without it being a part of their deal. 6 x 07 he says he could simply resurrect Samuel; resurrection is an ability usually only crossroads (or mightier) demons have when making a deal. This list goes on and on, and is powerful stuff.
So folks, does this lead us into thinking that our beloved Crowley is hanging by a thread and his secret will be out of the bag soon. Can this sway us into leaning this way that he is even higher up the pay grade and more powerful than any of us could have imagined. Was this in fact the reason why he was born to direct! So let Bella understand about this man’s magical talents, if he is in fact a smoke screen and hiding behind something far more terrifying, than the King of Hell.
