So one of the questions during Misha’s panel at Phoenixcon was about the “rumours” pertaining to an “AU!Cas” and how that Cas would be different.
Misha asked the person where they got the rumours from (it was you, Misha, during JIB smh) and the person responded “Twitter” and then there was some back-and-forth about how Twitter was a very unreliable source (which is true).
But then he said “I wouldn’t put too much stock in those rumours.” and that was it. That’s pretty much all he had to say about it. Which makes sense seeing as he probably hasn’t seen a single script aside from the Scooby Doo one yet, so he honestly doesn’t know.
I know there’s a lot of spec about this and opinions are divided, which is fine, that’s always part of the fun. I personally don’t think we’ll get to see an AU!Cas. I think when they bring Cas back he’ll be different somehow, because as Misha did say during JIB: what’s important about Cas’s death is how it will transform him. Maybe he’ll be human. Maybe he’ll be something else completely controlled by Jack the nephilim. But he’s not just gonna come back exactly the same, that would be kinda pointless.
But an AU!Cas from bizarro world? I doubt it. I don’t think they need to introduce an AU!Cs to tell their story. But hey, I could be wrong. Maybe we’ll have an AU!Cas who will interact with Mary/Luci (Bobby?) but never with Sam & Dean. Maybe he’ll even be in a different vessel. But yeah, my money’s on not seeing AU!Cas at all.
Man this hellatus is really dragging on and it hasn’t even been a month yet!
Well, they brought back Colt and….yup, they fucked that up.
It’s one thing to bring back characters to completely ruin them (Mary, Bobby, Lucy, Chuck and Cas) but bringing back inanimate objects to simply ruin them? to destroy their significance? That takes dedication, that takes a certain meanness.
But think from another angle. The Colt was, more or less, Dean’s. Dean’s weapon. Its significance was intrinsically tied up with one of Dean’s greatest achievements –killing of Azazel, getting rid of the evil that tormented his family for forever. The Colt was connected to Dean, and reminded us of one of Dean’s finest, happiest moments. The Colt was important to Dean. And to us.
So of course, the writers brought it back. To give it to Sam, to Cas, to every other random bystander. To diminish the importance and significance of that weapon and it’s connection to Dean.
To show how useless it has become.
And to ultimately destroy it as if it didn’t matter, as if it was nothing, as if it was obsolete.
And damn if that doesn’t mirror how Dean gets treated (or should I say sidelined) on the show these days. And damn it that doesn’t hurt on every level.

Just to let you all know out there in other countries, today is a very stressful day in England. What with finding out the killer from a mediocre soap opera after more than a year since the murder was committed.
UPDATE: AS A JOKE I SAID BOBBY KILLED LUCY WITH THAT DAMN JEWELLERY BOX THEN JANE COVERED IT UP AND STUCK TO IT. HE ACTUALLY FUCKING DID IT OMG I’M A GENIUS (and many others i’m sure)
if y'all just heard the biggest collective gasp from britain it’s bc we just found out that bobby beale killed lucy beale and it’s possibly the biggest thing to happen since that episode of xfactor in 2010 where one of the contestants elbowed her singing partner in the face
