A new poster here yesterday popped this thought into my head, so I hope she doesn’t mind me talking about her idea as I think its superb. I am also jealous I didn’t think of it myself;)
Could Metatron be behind everything. He is writing a new gospel in which the Winchesters are not supposed to be the heroes as he said himself. That is why Sam did not look for Dean, he could not as Metatron did write it so, that is why the scenes with Amelia were so unreal, dreamlike, Metatron did not know any better as he knew humans only from the books he was reading, maybe poorly written ones. That is why Sam is suddenly not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel anymore, but wants to die. That is why he said all this awful things to Dean, but did not really mean them, as it that was not what he, Sam, would have done, had Metatron not written it that way. And that is why Metatron wanted Kevin dead, as Kevin was the true prophet and he might have been an obstacle. And it makes sense as Jared recently said in an interview that Sam figures out that somebody is to be blamed for what has happened and it is neither Sam nor Dean.
It does feel strange that we did mull over things here about the picnic scene and other scenes with Sam and Amelia. I do remember us mentioning that we also thought it could have been some alternate universe that had been created. So I could believe this write up to be allowed to unfold. It could be a spell of a creative genius at work and that would suit Metatron down to a tee. I could see his character putting Sam and Dean threw hell and putting them in a world like the trickster did, its all possible. Also Metatron always said and told Dean that it was always about the stories. He told Cas to have babies and come and find him and tell him his. I also keep thinking about Naomi, why Metatron really killed her. Was she a real threat to his story telling? My only one negative thought perhaps is that why is Sam looking for Dean now? If Metatron has placed the boys in this fantasy world, how will this be addressed?
Let me know what you think about this new Sam and Dean gospel that Metatron could be behind. Our are writers up to this level of fantasy a world created for Sam and Dean that doesn’t make them appear very nice heroes.
