Could Cas be in the empty? Misha says Cas in a realm "we taked about but never seen" we have never really talked about what realm angels go after death but we had talks of the empty and we never saw it
Could be. I mean the two plausible theories I’ve come up with are either The Empty (and hoping if that’s the case they actually do hire Scout to play a cameo even if it’s just sitting in the background of the scene scribbling everything down furiously while hoping nobody notices her in the shot), or The Veil, which played such a huge, ominous role from s9-s11 while Heaven was on lockdown after Metatron’s tampering… It had become the absolute worst possible version of Heaven’s Eternal Waiting Room. But it’s still a sort of transitory space.
I’m personally REALLY hoping it’s not The Empty, which was described as a place you can’t come back from. A place “outside of creation.” Essentially nothingness. It’s anti-being. I’d hate to see it actually depicted visually, you know? As if were a place that could contain ~something~. But that’s my personal *ugh* reaction to them taking a concept they’d set up throughout s11 to stand in contrast to Chuck’s entire creation. Honestly, I’d be really disappointed in a vaguely transcendental and existential sort of way.
It would harsh my mellow.
I personally hope it’s the Veil. The Empty has that sense of impossible finality to it, but the Veil is the realm of Reapers. It’s like a transit depot for souls, and the starting point from which reapers shuttle them between realms (Heaven, Hell, Purgatory… wherever angels go when they die…). And in that sense, it’s a realm just as real and tangible as Heaven or Hell or Purgatory, a place where the dead would logically go, but where someone might intercede and pull a certain angel aside for a quick chat before they move on to catch the train to their final destination.
I have another anon along these same lines:
You’re not betting on the upside down?
I know just enough about Stranger Things to know that this is a Stranger Things… thing. Mr. Mittens and Kidperson have both watched it, but I’m just like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
Heck maybe he got rerouted to the Faerie Courts and Oberon wanted to have a go at him? Maybe he’s temporarily been transferred to Heaven, but strangely it takes him a while to figure that out because for some reason it looks exactly like the bunker, but it feels so real and it’s just so tempting to read and relax and watch television until Sam and Dean come back from whatever hunt they must be on… and then he starts to realize where he is and what’s happened…
There’s an awful lot of possibilities for where he may be. Some are obviously more likely than others, but I think the two most likely are either the Empty or the Veil.
Since those are both places that have been discussed multiple times on the show (the veil has actually been talked about MORE than the empty, going all the way back to s2 as a concept, but really addressed as a place for the first time in 4.15.)
(not to mention it’s also the plane of existence where Hellhounds reside, in addition to Reapers. So any time the show has dealt with hellhounds, it’s been veil-adjacent as well)
