big show making '11

In the Season 11 finale when Amara was giving Dean his gift, God was FINALLY talking to Castiel and apologizing to him about what he’d put him through. He’d heard Cas’ prayers loud and clear for more than seven years, but he had chosen to ignore them for the most part, and he had thought it was for Castiel’s own good. He explained to Cas that while Lucifer was once his favorite, it was obvious now that Cas was. And since Dean was getting what he needed most, God would give Cas what he needed as well.

The next day, Meg showed up on the doorstep of the bunker.
