I have this headcanon that this was the first real time they met and had a good talk in centuries, if not in millennia. Probably no one cares about my theories, but I’ve been thinking about them for a while now, and I can’t really keep them to myself.
So, according to what Gabe says in Changing Channels, he should have left Heaven somewhen around Lucifer’s fall:
”But watching them turn on each other? Tear at each others throats? I couldn’t bear it! Okay? So I left. And now it’s happening all over again.”
It’s not clear whether he’s referring to the early stages of Lucifer’s rebellion (before he fell), or the fights between Heaven and Hell that came sooner after it; within Christian and non cultures, it’s clear that Satan, the Devil or whatever you want to call him was there way before humans were born (I’m thinking about the snake and the apple, yes). Anyway, according to this whole consideration, if Gabriel left Heaven little after Lucifer’s fall, he would probably be wandering about on Earth for God knows how many millennia; at least since the early stages of humanity developement. But, just a few moments before, he had said:
”Okay, Gabriel. How does an archangel become a trickster?” “I skipped out of heaven, had a face transplant, carved out my own little corner of the world.”
Okay, so: we know that Gabriel isn’t just a trickster. He is the Trickster. So, unless he has sort of stolen Loki’s identity after he and his myth were born, he probably has always been Loki, whose first mythological appearance is set circa in year 1000 AD. Considering this, there are two possibilities: • Gabriel got out of Heaven way before Norse legends were born; before, during or after Lucifer’s fall, somewhen from humanity’s first stepts and beyond; he found a vessel, became a trickster and eventually the object of the Vickings’ legends; • Gabriel ran away from Heaven just during the Middle Ages, either stealing Loki’s identity or becoming Loki himself in the first place.
This sets Gabriel’s getaway from Heaven in a quite ambiguous time lapse, say at least between 200.000BC and 1000AD. Which is, actually, very ambiguous. *coughs* But I thought about that too: Gabriel, in fact, was the archangel meant to announce Jesus’ birth to Mary; of course God had ordered him to do so, therefore we can assume Gabriel was still in Heaven by Jesus’ birth. This reduces our possibilities and we can finally set his parting from Heaven approssimately between 6BC and 1000AC.
Okay, here comes the important part! As this beautiful post convinced me, I have a headcanon about Gabriel and Castiel having a very strong relationship like the one Sam and Dean have. However, when Cass first saw Gabe in Changing Channels, he didn’t immediatly recognise him:
”Something is not right. This thing is much more powerful than it should be”. ”What thing—the Trickster?” “If it is a trickster.”
By the end of the episode, though he had had no possibilities to talk to the Winchesters anymore, Castiel figured out who the Trickster really was. And look at Cass’ face when he finally saw Gabriel again:
I love Misha’s acting so much in this scene, because the emotion here’s clear on his face: this is not the expression of someone who’s simply angry. This is someone who feels betrayed. If you add this to the expression on Castiel’s face when, a little while before, Gabriel taped his mouth and sent him away, that look of complete shock - because no, it can’t be Gabriel, Gabriel could never do something like that to him - and to the post I linked a few sentences above, the results are absolute. Gabriel and Castiel were obviously close in Heaven, and if what I just pointed out in this last paragraph - or, again, the post I linked - didn’t convince you, you can’t just deny the obvious bound the writers showed us in Meta Fiction. And still, however strong their brotherhood was, Castiel didn’t at first recognise Gabriel in Changing Channels, meaning that he had never seen him with this [Gabriel’s] vessel. And, considering the many times Supernatural showed us how difficult it was to find someone strong enough and willing to become an angel’s vessel (especially in S09E03), I am more willing to believe that Gabriel’s never changed his vessel at least since he became Loki; also, if Gabriel had changed his vessel through history, pagan gods would have found out he was something else than a demigod, something who instead required a vessel, as a demon or, in fact, an angel. Last thing is probably bullshit, but I like to think it that way, even if it’s surely just a coincidence: Gabriel’s vessel is short, and his height is about the standard one of - wonder what? - the Middle Ages, or, Loki’s myths ages!
So, finally, here’s the thing. Castiel has not recognised his vessel, who’s most likely to have at least a thousand years, though, considering our first statements, could be up to two thousands; this brings me to think that Gabriel did not just leave Heaven, but his whole family, walking out on his brothers for good and coming on Earth for a fresh start. And though, after two thousand years of being away, after not talking with Cass and his sibilings for centuries and centuries and centuries… He still would give his life for him. He still believes him, and viceversa. And well, I know that two thousand years are not so many for an archangel, but damn, you can actually see in his eyes how much he really cares for his little brother; you can actually sense how Gabriel, the mighty Gabriel, who played badass and pretended to not give a frick about the other angels, who made us believe he only cared about women and sugar- he has truly changed, or has returned to be the person he once was. People misunderstand Gabriel so much, because they just look at how badass he pretends to be and how cheerful and funny he always is; but this is the real Gabriel; someone who left his family because he couln’t stand to see his brothers fight, someone who gave up everything he had because he didn’t want to stand up to his sibilings, but someone who, at the end, screwed up the whole life he had created for himself because he loved his brothers and humanity too much to let them sink without doing anything about it. And if this doesn’t make you think Gabe’s one of the best characters of this whole show, then, well, dont know how else I could cajole you.
