Destiel And Season 13
[Sorry for the unimaginative title]
Season 13 seem to be really ramping up the gay this season and the parallels and “subtext” are crazy.
Castiel dies in Season 12 and Dean is told that he is beginning to act like his Dad towards Jack. (John Winchester’s A+ parenting) Why did John act so distant and harsh to everyone? The love of his life died. Though Mary is also trapped in the parallel world (and Dean assumes she is dead) his entire focus is on Cas. (13x03). In a bar he doesn’t even flirt with the female bartender (really Asmodeus but he doesn’t know that). He literally kills himself a la Romeo in ‘Advanced Thanatology’ and Billie notes that he wants to die before she revived him. When Cas comes back his mood is markedly improved and he treats Jack much better. (13x06)
So far we have had multiple episodes where monsters have impersonated lovers or been in relationships.
In ‘The Big Empty’, Mia the Shapeshifter impersonates people’s loved ones to give them closure. Her abusive boyfriend ‘Buddy’ then impersonates those people to kill the clients. Buddy is a representation of toxic masculinity and is killed.
In ‘Tombstone’, a Ghoul pretends to be a cowboy and becomes the boyfriend of a mortician whom he tries to manipulate before robbing a bank so they can run away together. When she refuses he abducts her and is later killed by Dean’s deputy friend.
Asmodeus, The Prince Of Hell Who is currently ruling is associated with lust and sexual desire. He has the ability to impersonate people like the Shapeshifter and the Ghoul. In ‘War of the Worlds’ he pretends to be Castiel to Dean. COINCIDENCE??? Maybe but unlikely.
