Misha’s Crisis of Self

Misha’s Facebook account got deactivated for two days.

As GishiLeaks reports, he wasn’t kidding about the existential crisis.

He’s dealing with it by trying to find himself. But is this really the right way?

After being booted from Facebook for impersonating a celebrity, one has to take a good hard look at oneself. Who am I? Who might I be? The name “Misha Collins” has come to mean many things to many people - actor, philanthropist, celebrity, Overlord, chef, the guy who does the laundry on Thursdays, scavenger hunt host, Bill’s personal punching bag, and so much more. But who is Misha Collins?

In an effort to figure this out, I’m placing this personal ad. I hope to answer it and take myself out… just for coffee, at first- nothing too heavy or serious. I’m just not in that place yet, you know? We could even start more casually, with email and eventually texting or phone conversations. Maybe even DM on Twitter. I’m pretty open to any form of communication with me, really. Ultimately, it’d be nice to find the right me and settle down for a long term, serious relationship. (However, I should probably warn me that I’m currently happily married. She’s really cool though and is absolutely okay with me engaging in a personal or even sexual relationship with myself.)

I hope this ad will help us connect and start down the road to getting to know myself (ourself?) a little bit better.  We’re not a bad looking guy; we try to keep fit and healthy and we are open to adventures, long walks, and deep conversations. If you’re me, please write me soon.


Poor Tim is completely wrecked here.  He knows Robin can’t be found with his dad if the police show up, so he strips off the costume as he runs desperately through the house.  When he finally gets there, blinded by tears, he tries to pull the boomerang out of his dad’s chest.  Bruce follows behind him, picking up the pieces of his uniform, and finally pulls Tim into his arms to offer him what little comfort he can.

This whole thing is eerily reminiscent of what happened back when Tim first became Robin, when Jack and Janet were captured.  Tim was terrified that he’d brought this fate on his parents by becoming Robin.  Bruce comforted him as best he could, but even that made Tim feel worse.
