"We find him in a realm that we talked about on SPN before but have never seen. And he finds himself alone in this realm with only he and another campaign who is another powerful being played by a great actor." I'm way more convinced that this is about Cas going to The Empty and coming back, rather than an AU!Cas appearing, in case that helps any.
Uhm - thank you for this, I think I either read that quote wrong or came across a typo of some sort, because I’d assumed they were talking about the AU World. So, I guess that would mean Cas will meet and work with Death? Because who else can drag anyone out of the Empty? Also that angels go in the Empty when they die?
(What about demons?
And if there’s a finite number of angels, would God really organize things so they get stuck in some place beyond salvation when they die? Isn’t that, like, a losing strategy?)
Well - I’m excited about Death coming back, if that’s indeed the case, but I’m still wary about this whole thing - if we’re talking about the Empty, a place we’ve been told nobody comes back from, I’m going to be needing a very convincing explanation as to why Cas is suddenly allowed to break the rules.
Man, this is the worst hiatus ever.
