___ always believed that life is not about how fast you run or with what degree of grace, that this life is a boot camp, that we must perservere through all the obstacles and hardships to earn our way into the next life. … But sometimes it seems to me the training is unnecessarily painful.
"Hope requires the contender
Who sees no virtue in surrender. From the cradle to the bier , The heart must preserve.”
Watching the episode again, and this part in the truck with 2014!Cas and Past!Dean.. When Dean asks what happened to him, Cas mentions how he lost his powers when the other angels left… Well it just loops to where we are now. He did lose his powers but sort of had them again when he stole them, but they won’t last. The angels have again left him…
"I think it had something to do with the other angels leaving. . They bailed and my powers just went…"
I frigging love seeing the parallelism.
Then how no matter what details Dean alters (him working for Hell instead of Sam, Cas trying to stay an angel to fill the void, Sam trying to keep his distance instead of Dean doing so) they will still end up there.
-On opposite sides.-
Then it gets me wondering what the new season might have.
1) Cas almost having a threesome but Dean interrupts.
2) Sam fighting Dean who still refuses to fight Sam to the death
3) The CROATOAN virus appears again
4) Cas saves Demon!Dean from angels
5) Something about toilet paper
