What part has Metatron had to play in the grand scheme of things?

I can’t stop thinking about Crowley, but a thought crossed my mind about Metatron, and what part he’s had to play in all this. When you think what disruption he’s caused to all the angels and how he’s stripped them of their home and the place they are used to being in. The disturbance he’s caused heaven in general, just to be top dog and whipping boy. He took away Cas’s grace. He made sure that Gadreel fell with all the other angels. When he met Gadreel, he knew exactly who he was. Why was Gadreel so special to his plans? Yes he used Gadreel to do his dirty work. He put innocent people down and destroyed what good was left in heaven just so he could play God!

Cas thought that the rest of the angels would realize that Metatron had been playing them for fools. Metatron thinks they will do nothing, because they are frightened little sheep. He knows he has power behind him and he knew angels would bow down to him. Just as Cas thought in season 6. So for Cas that coin flipped up on its head. He was bleating to Cas about his reputation when his was failing and a damn sight worse. Metatron thought he didn’t read enough and he never learned. Until Cas surprised him and all the angels over heard the conversation, which was Metatron’s down fall. He ended Dean’s life with that fatal blow, but he never fully got away. He always until the bitter end boasted that he could always tell a good story, it was Cas after all he told this too. But I guess Cas surprised him and played him for an even bigger fool.

So how did you see Metatron throughout season 9. What part do you think he played in  the grand scheme of things, do you think he reached his ultimate goal, his prized possession, heaven! Was it great finally being the boss of the domain he wanted so badly. Was he so lonely that he invited a special few to come and sit with him. Did all his best laid plans work out? Who was more cunning and calculating Metatron or Crowley? They were both looking after their kingdom’s and using people to their own advantages. But was their prize at the end of the day worth the risk and worth its salt. Did their dream live up to its reality? How invested was Metatron, when he started typing out the best story, the story that he’d sat with God to draft up. Was this part of his plan that he wanted to live in God’s shoes and aspire to his way of life, and live God’s story? Was Metatron so infatuated with God, that he actually wanted to be him? Or did he want to pose as someone else entirely. Bella would love to know your view of Metatron and what he really stood for.

  1. The real Metatron wouldn’t lead the angels astray as he sits under the throne of God. As Anaphiel would burn him with lashes of fire. I do watch the supernatural episodes and they are funny and make me laugh. There is only one power in Heaven that is still active to this day. A Good watch as for the actor who plays Gabriel bravo well done most funny. The truth is Gabriel has always been an intimate angel by whatever name he is called be it Gabriel or Gabriel.
    Thanks for posting Geoffharris581. I have never been over keen on Gabriel he was never my favorite angel after Mystery Spot and causing Sam hell just trying to prove a point. I felt for him when he died though. The fun element not so much these days not as it used to be with the tension between the brothers and stuff.

  2. Based on my observations of Metatron during season 8, I think he went crazy after he was left with the Native American tribe for so long. He was away from his fellow angels and from heaven for eons. Also, he was probably worshipped by those native people and he became fixated with becoming the next God and having heaven all to himself. I am certain that he read all of Chuck’s books and kept up with Angel Radio and became disgusted with all the angels because they failed in their mission to protect mankind as instructed by God. So with a God-complex combined with all out retribution against the angels, especially Cas since he killed thousands of his own kind, Metatron plotted and planned his takeover. As with most megalomaniacs, Metatron began to beleive his own hype and failed to respect the fact that angels are just that- angels; engineered and empowered by God himself. As the Scribe of God, Metatron should have known that his plan was doomed to fail. All this talk about God being gone since season 5 is just building up to the big reveal by the end of the series. God has always been there, he just chooses not to take sides in the constant battle between good and evil. Because, when you get right to it, God has dominion over both and there must be balance. Metatron failed to remember the works he scribed on behalf of God and all the literature he read written by mankind throughout our history: Good always triumphs over evil. He must have missed those stories!

      I’ve just found the link. I’m surprised Buffy is first tough. I understand her popularity. But then is she as big as Dean Winchester coming 8th? I loved the write up JC gave for Dean.

      8. Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles, Supernatural)

      You would think after nine seasons of killing supernatural creatures and saving humanity that the elder of the demon-hunting Winchester brothers would be all dark and brooding. But despite a history of constant mayhem and epic suffering — including dying more than once — Dean has never lost his charm or his courage. “Dean’s just cool,” says executive producer Jeremy Carver. “There’s a hero and an every man perfectly intertwined in this one fantastic character.”

        1. Yay!
          I’ve been re-watching the first season again and I see that, from the very beginning, Dean was always supposed to be the Every man Hero type anyway. It was always like that. Dean did the saving and Sam was the one to be saved. From the moment you see Dean carry his brother out of that house, that’s been his role in the show, until this season.. I think it’s fascinating how they’ve decided to reverse the character roles this last season, with Dean needing saving by Sam instead.

          I think from the out cries last season about wanting a myth arc all for Dean. I guess the writers decided to put this into action. It need to be reversed actually as saving Sam was becoming a tad boring. I can’t wait personally to see how Sam a) copes and b) does the actual supernatural save?

          1. Or Dean will have to save himself and Sammy from Demon Dean. Yes. The show was set up as a vehicle for Jared and Jensen as the wise cracking side kick. It became apparent that there was a chemistry between the two actors (and talent) that weaved into a more equal division of labor but Dean always set up to “save Sam” as he did when they were children but also that Sam resented this older brother not letting him make his own decisions. Thus, the speech in the church in “Sacrifice”. Now it will be interesting to see how Sam deals with demondean and who will do the saving. THat is why the show keeps going. It is always fresh with new ideas.

  3. Metatron was full of hueberis. He also hated humanity and forgot the basic mission of angels. Cas always thought he was doing the right thing for the angels and humanity sometimes out of pride or sometimes out of shortsightedness, but Metatron was a self serving a-hole. First he wanted to be alone and learned about humanity from books. Then he wanted heaven for himself. Then he was lonely and invited angels back to be subservient to him. He played Gadreel like a fiddle, exploiting his desire to be redeemed. He played other angels as well as Cas using their weakness against them. He sought to fill a void in heaven and suspected all would fall into place. The writers gave him some great speeches about humanity and how twisted religion can be when used for nefarious purposes.
    It was like you didn’t know where you were with Metatron it felt as you said here all over the place. It was like he couldn’t stop in one place like he was a grasshopper or something. I also felt that Metatron never appeared to be happy and content, he thought this of Naomi but he wasn’t either. I think he got too big for his own boots. He wanted this magical kingdom all to himself then decided he got bored with his own company and thought sod this, I need someone to entertain me, I don’t think I like it up here all on my own.

    His choice of names, Marv for marvelous, shows just how over the top he became perhaps because he was isolated for so long on Earth-but that was his choice and his consequence to bear. Reading about humanity is not the same as being human or even being an angel who interacts with humans like Cas. Metatron thought he won for an instant when he killed Dean and thus thought he would subdue his rival Cas. How wrong he was. Cas has learned much about humans, angels and pop culture but living it not reading about it and Metatron underestimated Cas’ charisma. Metatron being imprisoned is a better punishment than his destruction. It shows that Cas is a true leader. Of course, he may escape but I hope his story is done. He may have thought he knew the ending, but he misjudged Dean and Cas and Gadreel. Bravo to CA for an iconic portrayal, but I hope Metatron NEVER plays a part again.
    I thought as soon as I saw him in that prison cell yes, my gut was telling me he would escape. I think he would bide his time and I also think he would try and murder Cas again that wouldn’t surprise me in the least. At least ways Gadreel didn’t die at his hands either. I thought he went out in a very noble way. I think this won’t be the end of him. I think he will bubble under the surface. It would be nice to see Dean get his own back and take out his life after the event.

      I do feel partly this way too. I get what a weasel he is, how he’s destroyed Dean. How he’s got into Cas’s physic as well. CA is an amazing actor and has fit the role perfectly. But its time to knock the character on its head. But I bet he will escape there is no end to this mans disruption. He’s not happy unless he’s causing discomfort to someone.

    2. I don’t see Metatron as an important character in himself. Metatron is simply a tool to tell Cas, Gadreel’s and heaven’s story and to carry the Winchester’s story forward. Metatron is there to say or do or be whatever the writers need him to be to tell a good story. I think that’s what all his speeches about storytelling were for anyway. Metatron was there to allow the writers to speak to us, the viewers and to tell an interesting story. You do have to admit that a lot of the things that happened with Castiel as a character could never have happened without Metatron’s intervention. I think Metatron was simply the instrument the writers used to turn Castiel into heaven’s leader again. He also provided a convenient excuse to get Dean turned into a demon.
      I agree Ikeke…

      1. I agree that Metat ron was a literary device to push the narrative forward, but he was an important one who had many appearances as a character over 2 years. His role seemed to change into a more central one that impacted Cas and Kevin and Gadreel . The writers could have stuck with one badass Abadouche but she became less central than Metatron. She was killed. Metatron was imprisoned. Just saying that his role was more dominant than merely a plot device. Maybe it was C.A. portrayal that puts him up there with the badasses of all times that have appeared in the major arcs for our central characters.
