THAT WHOLE EPISODE.
“I LOVE YOU”.
HE HAD TO CLARIFY.
“I LOVE ALL OF YOU.”
THESE THINGS ARE NOT THE SAME.
ya know how after 12x10 we said Ishims little speech technically confirmed Cas was in love with Dean? WELL I DIDN’T BLOODY THINK WE’D GET A HEART FELT DYING LOVE CONFESSION TWO EPISODES LATER.
I WILL BE SCREAMING ABOUT THIS FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
CAS IS IN LOVE WITH DEAN. THIS IS CANON.
We all know Crowley loves the Winchesters (and Castiel, but I believe Cassy is a Winchester this is just a clarification blah blah blah) and I think this is them slowly finding out.
He saved Castiel, something no one but the audience expected.
Cas has the guts (haha sorry) to tell everyone he loves them, when the others don’t. They are the reason he is him, and his dying wish is to tell them. That they are his family. That he is nothing without them. They are his everything.
This episode is showing us that everyone here is a family. Either by blood or not, they love each other in their own freaky ways. Demon, Angels, and the resurrected Winchesters. It shows that how different they may be, all of their flaws, that the love they share between each other makes up the family bond.
It doesn’t matter what Lucifer says to Crowley, the Winchesters do (kinda) love Crowley back. The King of Hell loves them with all his heart.
And the “lets go home” line is also comparing them as a family, especially how Dean says it. It is their home, where they live. Because they are a family.
Family doesn’t end in blood
But it doesn’t have to start there either.
And that’s not just for our show, it’s our family too. We are all bound together, we share pain and happiness. We are the SPN Family. We may fight like Crowley and Cas, but we love each other like siblings, like Sam and Dean. That we may annoy one another, we may say things we don’t mean, but we are Family.
I believe Castiel is a healer, so within the African culture a lion represents healing and medicine in addition to wisdom, strength, thought magic, thunder, and lightning. An emerald represents within Ancient Egyptian mummies were often buried with an Emerald carved with the symbol of verdure– flourishing greenness–on their necks to symbolize eternal youth.
I believe Castiel listens to My Chemical Romance songs on repeat and
cries about their break up still in his room. He also likes to do that
thing where he pretends he’s in a sad music video while listening to the
sad MCR songs. Lysander is sick of it.
