Btw, that’s Satan
He’s a soldier of heaven
He’s the Archangel Gabriel
And that’s not even the half of it.WHERE ARE ALL THE NOTES!?
And not even one outtake.
Ignoring Cas’s blunt and completely hilarious sense of dry humor for a moment, think about what he’s actually saying here. Castiel is the name given to him by God. Castiel translates roughly to ‘my cover is God’ or ‘shield of God’ in Biblical theophory—the ‘el’ suffix means ‘God’, and ‘iel’ means ‘of God.’ Cas is the name given to him by Dean. Deliberately or not, Dean removed the part of Cas’s name that means ‘of God’, and left him with ‘shield’. Castiel isn’t actually a Biblical angel—it’s a variant of the name ‘Cassiel’, who was an archangel in the Kabbalah responsible for observing the Earth with no interference. Making it up as we go, indeed.
So here’s the thing: Crowley is clearly demonic. He was a son of a witch in 18th century Scotland, sold his soul, died, went to hell…Became a demon and then became King of Hell.
But he also had a ‘thing’ with Naomi in Mesopotamia. Sooooo…couldn’t he be a fallen angel like Anna? I mean, how did she know what to do? Someone had to do it first, right?
So, Crowley… You were an angel. Became disaffected. Ripped out your Grace. Fell. Was reborn as a human. Learned magic. Sold your soul. Died, went to Hell and became a demon.
And at some point, recovered all your memories. Cool.
I’m just going to leave this here.
WELL THAT EXPLAINS WHY MARK SAID THAT MAYBE CROWLEY WASN’T REALLY A DEMON
