When I think back to Cas healing Sam at the end of 7 x 17 he takes on Lucifer and sucks him into himself without hesitation. Cas is briefly left behind by Dean in the hospital as he’s still slightly out of sorts. So Cas really didn’t take so long in healing a very sick, unstable Sam at this point it was over rather shortly.
So Ezekiel hits our screens as this powerful angel. We don’t really understand much about the guy, and Dean traps him in a ring of fire to establish what his motives actually are. Even Dean is aware he may have a hard time trusting the stranger, and puts his feelings to the test. As the weeks pass we notice his strange antics beginning to show and he occasionally pops out for a little creepy chat in close proximity with Dean. (Bella shivers) The more I get to know this guy the more and more suspicious I find myself becoming. I did early wonder if he was planning to lure Dean in and proposition him as he owes him a big favor. My main concern is why is it taking Zeke a long time to heal Sam? I thought that angels could heal humans fairly instantly and without much effort. I understand that Zeke was injured during the fall and he took it particularly badly. But usually angels still heal fairly quickly. So is Zeke playing the boys for a fool. Is he up to something on the inside? Could Sam be molding himself to Zeke without Dean knowing and being any the wiser. Is Zeke locking himself perhaps into Sam, like Demons can. And Meg actually did with Sam in Born under a Bad sign during season 2. Could he prevent himself from being discharged from Sam’s body? has he performed some inner trick to counteract this? Its just that I am having difficulty in thinking that its taking Zeke this long to heal Sam from the inside. Okay, we are aware what the trials did to Sam. Maybe its just taking longer for the illness to subside and be back to normal. But is he on the level? He keeps healing people and Sam continues to pass out due to the stress of it all. So what else is going on here?
What do you think guys? Is Zeke fooling the boys, well Dean mostly? Do we think he’s taking too long in healing Sam, and therefore up to something on the inside, but what? So could Zeke be something other than an angel? Is this why its taking him longer to heal a human? What is taking him so long …….. Any thoughts?
