WHAT IF THE ONLY WAY TO GIVE ALL THE FALLEN ANGELS THEIR GRACE BACK IS THAT SOME ANGEL HAVE TO GO UPSTAIRS AND KILL METATRON
AND THE ONLY ANGELS LEFT ARE MICHAEL AND LUCIFER INSIDE THE CAGE IN HELL
SO THEY HAVE TO LET THEM OUT AGAIN SO THEY CAN GET ACCESS TO HEAVEN AND KILL METATRON
AND THIS IS HOW LUCIFER SCREWS EVERYTHING UP AND THIS IS HOW THE 2014 EPISODE HAPPENS
The Thing About Metatron Stealing Cas's Grace
… so clearly sleep is for losers. I want to do a more proper write up about this. But given that I am (a) still awake and (b) just pitched this theory at my friend, here’s the cliff notes version until I can get around to doing something more in-depth:
Metatron steals Cas’s grace—and puts it in a vial.
IN A VIAL.
YOU KNOW LIKE ANNA’S GRACE WAS IN A VIAL AROUND URIEL’S NECK.
And then Anna got her
groove grace back.
Cas losing his grace is the thing that triggered all angels to fall. How do you fix Heaven? You fix Cas.
Until then, you have Cas (along with the rest of his kin) hanging out on Earth, with the Winchesters, rebuilding and developing his relationship with Dean and Sam. You have the set-up to put (at least temporarily) angels and humanity on the same side (working towards the goal to re-angelify everyone and oust Metatron). You have the set up for Cas to (a) adapt to humanity some, (b) fix Heaven (by fixing himself) and thereby alleviate his guilt issues, and (c) have time to repair his relationship with Dean without being so torn between Dean and Heaven.
WHICH MEANS. PROBABLY ALL THE WAY IN SEASON TEN, HERE’S WHAT WE’RE GONNA GET:
Dean will finally be able to ask Cas to stay. Out loud. (With words, Dean. I know they’re tough, bb.)
And Cas will finally be able to say yes. Because life on earth won’t be a punishment. It won’t be a banishment, like Lucifer. It will be a choice Cas makes for himself, that he can make, with his newly cemented hybrid identity as something angelic as well as something human.
All angels falling means Cas stands a much, much better chance of not feeling like he’s being disloyal to Heaven. Angels and humanity don’t need to be enemies; angels can maybe learn to stop being dicks. To remember what Naomi herself says they’ve forgotten: they’re suppose to protect humanity, watch over humanity—and maybe even live alongside humanity, if they so choose.
THIS IS WHY ALL THE ANGELS FALLING MAKES ME SUPER HAPPY. THIS IS WHY METATRON STEALING CAS’S GRACE MAKES ME SUPER HAPPY. ALL THE HAPPY FROM ME OKAY.
