EDIT: The prayer.
“Hey Cas, You out there, buddy? Here’s the deal. The deal… I need you to come in, man. I need you to come back. And I need you to not be nuts. Just sayin.”
This sentence on the forum sparked my imagination once again, even more so since Cas will not have much power, if any at all when we come back next season. A deleted scene was discussed heavily and in particular this line from Dean, and I need you not to be nuts’. Which at the time I thought was kind of an odd thing for Dean to come out and say. Most are saying why has it been deleted?
So with these words, what is Dean really implying, and more importantly why was that scene not used? Was Dean checking that his friend was okay, or was Dean checking that ? (Or I need you not to be nuts,) I want you to be okay, so you can heal my brother?
Some are saying that Cas is being used, and is only there when the boys really need him, now how do we see this? Is Cas over used for the sake of Sam and Dean? A person to go to as a last resort, or even the first port of call. Is Cas a tool and nothing more? Is he a prop that is a magical prop who’s soul purpose is to heal the sick as and when required, like a running tap? Or do we think that Cas is a friend, guardian and Doctor on call 27/7 all rolled into one. The one with the magic potion to cure all ills. Were the boys worried when Cas told Sam that even he couldn’t heal Sam, was this the end of the road for Dean if he turn to Cas for HELP? What other option did Dean really have? Who else could he have turned to?
So Bella is interested to know, how you see Cas? Do you see him as a used tool, that is frequently being exercised, as and when, just to put the situation right. Without any real thought behind why he just magically heals at whim? Are the boys may be a tad selfish in expecting Cas to be there to heal them, just because he can? Is Cas being around so easy in curing anything the boys happen to pick up, any germ, any injury any fight that may ensue. Are they always certain that Cas will be there to fix it? Does being human, alleviate this responsibility from him. Does this force the boys to look else where for guidance, and a cure even? Many thought Bobby was just a prop for the boys, is Cas becoming the same? Is it all too easy for just Cas to ‘touch’ and all is well with the world?
