My brain wont stop analysing Castiel's character development
From all the varying opinions I’ve seen on the sneak preview and stills of the next episode I can’t help but think of all the little signs pointing to Cas actually having regressed to a child-like state. It’s not unheard of for people who go through massive mental or emotional trauma to be brought back to this stage of thinking. This could in fact be Castiel’s method of dealing with the emotional strain Lucifer is putting him under. The fact that it is also his big brother who is bringing him down to this vulnerable state of mind, opening up memories and wounds, digging at them and making him feel worthless (or at least this is what I would assume he’s doing going by Sam’s experience and how petty Lucifer can be) it’s no real surprise that Castiel has regressed. When children are trying to show they like someone or prove that their worth paying attention too, they act out, as Castiel did with the ‘pull my finger’ gag. I don’t thing it was completely meant to be funny but more to show that Castiel is not himself. He’s broken, looking for approval again but this time he feels to vulnerable to use threats or act stotic or even have a normal adult conversation. I also think it was an attempt to lighten Dean and Sam’s mood. Castiel knows how much they’ve been through and Sam and Dean have always been his focus, their well being is his priority as it’s always been since he fell. I also think Lucifer is playing on this as a weakness, so Cas if on a pretty bumpy ride right now.
And I have to say I think it’s pretty funny seeing Cas like that. I mean it makes sense with him being tortured by Lucifer that either Cas has gone a bit bat ass crazy and using some of the pop culture things Luci has taught him or its actually Luci acting out through Cas. Either way I’m really looking forward to this next episode, I think now were reaching the end of this series its started improve and for me Cas only makes it better.
when I’m watching Supernatural with a friend/ family member and excitedly shout out a line a character is saying because it fills me with too many feels of many varieties. Also flail my arms sometimes…
