I was thinking about Gabriel and how a lot of people wants him to come back. But what if he was there all along?
We still don’t know who saved Castiel at the end of seasons 4 and 5, and after the leviathans, right?
What if it was Gabriel watching over his little brother?
Because Castiel had the bravery to do what Gabriel could never bring himself to: he stood up against his family, for humanity and free will.
I could never bring myself to believe God saved Castiel all those times, but if it was Gabriel it would actually make a lot of sense.
I could see Gabriel watching his little brother makes mistakes and giving him another chance, again and again, believing that Castiel deserved to be saved.
After all, Gabriel was the first angel to chose free will, it’s kind of logical that he would root for team free will.
