Hi! So I know you're more into meta that deals with the current season, which of course makes sense lol, I was just wondering - what do you think about the scene from season 9 where Metratron is talking about Castiel and says, "He's in love....(blatant pause)....with humanity." Do you think that the writers were being intentional with that? Cause every time I watch that I'm just like wow, if that was an intentional beat then that is probably the biggest load of subtext we've ever gotten.
This is just more proof to me that Carver Era was textualising Destiel and wanted to go there for endgame. I mean… alongside the cut “I love you” from 8x17, oh and the probably end grace cure of demon!dean.
So then in the end of Carver era / beginning of Dabb era they then re-addressed this “he’s in love with humanity/you did it all to save Dean” scene in 11x06 where we had interspersed for drama:
A Metatron/Cas scene: Cas facing Metatron’s humanity and his own emotions
A Dean/Amara scene : Amara telling Dean that he represents humanity
They literally did a mirroring of this 9x22 scene WITH THE SAME CHARACTER WHO HAD BEEN ABSENT FOR AGES to remind us that DEAN IS HUMANITY AND CAS IS IN LOVE WITH HIM.
So as much as I love Dabb and am a huge Dabb fangirl, yeah Dabb is just following on from Carver era ;)
