I wish I could share your excitement. He'll be directing, too, do you know?

I wish I could share your excitement.

I know you're not a huge Cas-fan, but I will always and forever be a Cas!girl. :) Besides, after the way TPTB took everything from Sam and Dean last season, it's nice they are giving something back to them for a change.

He'll be directing, too, do you know?

I'd heard that! Now I'm just waiting for Jared to have his turn behind the camera too!

I loved him, really. I did. Up until around S5. I'm just not getting his story line anymore, especially not in this season. And I'm honestly tired of the angels. But you know what I wish for all his fans? For Cas to have his own show, Misha would rock it. And you all could enjoy him in full force and I/we wouldn't have to. ;)

I'm just waiting for some fan to direct in S11.

I do have to say, I feel like they really haven't known what to do with Cas since the end of season five. Like, his season six storyline could have been really interesting if they had taken time to flush it out, but everything that season felt kind of all over the place to me. But even as side-tracked as his storyline has been, I find Cas to be very intriguing and fascinating to watch.

But you know what I wish for all his fans? For Cas to have his own show, Misha would rock it.

I'm actually going to say 'no' on this. (I know, I'm as shocked as you!!) Misha could carry a show but Cas could not. He's not a lead character. At least, not where he stands right now in his arc. I actually wish Misha would get a show of his own though. I'd love to see him do some other kinds of genre TV. I could get on board with that. You know, after season nine. ;)

I'm just waiting for some fan to direct in S11.

OMG. You know what? I could totally see that happening! lol

Welllll. This is a spoiler and I'd kind of not like to know it :( But I'm glad you're excited.

Oops. Sorry about that! Honestly, I don't think my brain even clicked on it as a spoiler! Probably because it was everywhere; Misha's twitter, Huffington Post, Zap2it, the TVGuide.com headline actually read 'Misha Collins Upped To Series Regular'. I'm going to go ahead and blame the entertainment news industry for my brain default. lol ;)

But I'm glad you're excited.

Omg, baby, you have no idea. I literally read the news at like midnight and I did not fall asleep until three am because I was so jazzed up!

Dean's face in that last gif!!! heehee

I am so fucking excited! I have a few theories on what this means for Cas' storyline, but mostly I'm just excited that I'm actually interested enough in SPN again to be coming up with theories!

I had reached that point again where I was thinking about giving it up, but you know that never sticks. Someone always talks me out of it. Now I'm actually excited for next season!

Besides that whole, "I'm a Cas!Girl" thing (and more screen time for my OTP), I think Sam and Dean are better when they have other people in their lives. It's healthy for them. (also did I mention my OTP? heehee)

Based on what I've been reading on Tumblr, ~things~ have been happening over there in SPN-writer land. Like, did you hear about Misha's appearance at a con on Sunday (or maybe Saturday) in which he was talking about the Dean/Cas relationship and mentioned that Dean actually said "I love you" in a recent episode but it was cut? *cue every Dean/Cas fan on Tumblr freaking out* I take a lot of what Misha-Mish says with a grain of salt, but he wasn't playing to the audience with this one.

I think perhaps we're seeing a real change in Dean this season. He has softened considerably, and they're writing him showing much more emotion than he ever has before. Most people think it's because they're going to make Dean bisexual. I dunno. I doubt a show like SPN could ever be that forward-thinking. But man, if they do...it would be fantastic.

Long story short, my guess is that because of all the stuff with the angel and demon tablets this season, that Cas is finally going to fall for good, and maybe give up his Grace.

Dean actually said "I love you" in a recent episode but it was cut?

I had NOT heard that! Wait, I have to go look it up and see what it says. brb Found it! Duuuuude. Okay, yes, the shipper in me was like "Fuck yes!" but the more rational side of my brain understands it was a different context coming from Dean - less 'let's make out' and more 'you're family' - but even that gets me happy because Cas means so much to Dean, he's the first real true friend we've ever seen Dean have, like not just a guy he goes out for beer but someone he actually talks to and worries over - it's just nice and I'm all stupid smiles now. Thanks for sharing that.

I take a lot of what Misha-Mish says with a grain of salt, but he wasn't playing to the audience with this one.

As one should. I found the clip actually and the girl starts the question with asking him about something he said to fans at a private meet n greet and she says, "Did you actually mean that or were you just trolling those people for fun?" So at least the fans are finally starting to learn. If Misha says the sky is falling, it's probably just a walnut.

I think perhaps we're seeing a real change in Dean this season.

I agree. I have seen some people saying that they wish the show and the characters would go back to season one style and while sometimes I think their mythology arcs are a bit convulted these days - a show can't go back after eight years! And neither should the characters! Dean was what, 26 when we first saw him? And now he's 34 and he should be a different man. I like that they gave him growth, I like seeing that maturity slowly come along until we get what we have now - a Dean who has been through so much and is a different man for it, but a better man.

I agree that the show is not forward enough to go for the outright bisexual route, but they are giving us a few little hints and I have to say I like that they are laying the groundwork and then letting us make our own conclusions without making it this big thing on the show. (not that I wouldn't fucking love it if Dean and Cas got together but that's not going to happen, so this way is good for me). I also think that the actors add a bit more of that friendship/relationship to the show. The recent episode where Dean prays to Cas? The rumor is that Jensen didn't think what they had writen was in character for the relationship of Dean and Cas, so he rewrote it to what we got there in the scene.

that Cas is finally going to fall for good, and maybe give up his Grace.

I agree. I like the theory that when they close the gates of Hell, they will also accidentally close the gtes of Heaven too and then the big question was - will Cas be stuck forever in Heaven or stuck forever on Earth when this happens? Since we now know Misha will be a regular, I'm guessing the latter. But I would kind of like it if they realized at the last second that Heaven was closing up and Cas has to make a quick decision and actually chooses to stay on Earth. Better than him being forced to.

I'm so excited to be having long conversations about SPN again!

Squeak! Me too! Well, this season has been considerably better than the past two, so there's that.

I like seeing that maturity slowly come along until we get what we have now - a Dean who has been through so much and is a different man for it, but a better man

I also like the fact that FINALLY some guy comes on to him and Dean doesn't behave like a stupid kid on the playground and make faces and gag at it. He seems genuinely flustered and taken aback in that scene with Aaron (the episode with the golem, which I assume you saw) and even comments later to the effect that he was disappointed he read the interaction wrong and Aaron wasn't actually coming on to him! It shows HUGE growth in his character and that he's aging with maturity. It was so great to see.

The recent episode where Dean prays to Cas? The rumor is that Jensen didn't think what they had written was in character for the relationship of Dean and Cas, so he rewrote it to what we got there in the scene.

Where can I read about this rumor? I'm not on Tumblr, but there are a few Dean/Cas people I follow and click on every night and hadn't heard about that. Because LJ is so dead nowadays I get all my fandomy info from Tumblr, more's the pity. I feel like some ancient dinosaur walking amongst the proto-mammals when I go there. All the kids are teens. But it's still the best place to catch stuff about cons or appearances or set photos or whatever.

I would kind of like it if they realized at the last second that Heaven was closing up and Cas has to make a quick decision and actually chooses to stay on Earth. Better than him being forced to

Oh man, can you imagine, he chooses to fall and become mortal to stay on Earth FOR DEAN? Nnnnnggghhh, my heart. I mean, that's what he's essentially been doing for the past few years anyway, but this would be something that would be final. It would also be keeping very much in character.

I hope they don't screw him up or anything. I didn't mind the Leviathan storyline too much, mostly because his search for redemption and forgiveness this season makes it all worth it. We could overlook that fact that Season 6 and part of Season 7 Dean were so OOC it wasn't even funny. Like, pathetically so. I'm glad we're back to the Dean who's tough on the inside but is completely emotional inside -- and only lets Cas see that part of him. *longing sigh* *chinhands*

I agree. We save the good episodes that we might want to rewatch and last year we only saved the one and this year we have like four or five saved so far.

that he was disappointed he read the interaction wrong and Aaron wasn't actually coming on to him!

I thought that too! That he seemed disappointed by it.

Where can I read about this rumor? I'm not on Tumblr, but there are a few Dean/Cas people I follow and click on every night and hadn't heard about that.

LJ never has the good SPN news anymore. I have been told the whole fandom has moved to Tumbler but I am not going there! I won't! I will fall into the pit of pretty shiny things and never do anything productive with my life again if I get a Tumbler!

Um, so anyways, The BFF is on Tumbler now - if you want to see hers, as it it revelant to your interests with The X-Files, Dean/Cas and Star Trek feels, she is here - and anyways she says the thing about Jensen rewriting that prayer scene was all over Tumbler. I searched but couldn't find anything on an original source.

I feel like some ancient dinosaur walking amongst the proto-ammals when I go there. All the kids are teens.

Yeah, another reason I'm just like, 'not going there.' They are all so young and newbie, fresh faced and invested and easily worked up and I'm too old and tired for that shit. I feel like Danny Glover over there.

Oh man, can you imagine, he chooses to fall and become mortal to stay on Earth FOR DEAN? Nnnnnggghhh, my heart.

I think I might die if that happens. Like, okay, it's been a long time since I got the 'hiatus is going to kill me' feeling but if they end the season like that - it will be a long dry summer!

It would also be keeping very much in character.

It would actually. I honestly think Cas feels more human than he does angel these days. I feel like he is more at home on Earth than in Heaven. I feel like he is more comforted by the presence of his human family than he ever was by his angel family. I think Cas has found his home and I hope they have him choose it.

We could overlook that fact that Season 6 and part of Season 7 Dean were so OOC it wasn't even funny.

God, he was so OOC that I could barely stand to even turn the damn show on anymore. And all over the fucking place too - both Sam and Dean, just their characters were all over the place in S6 & S7.

I will forgive everything if they go the route of Cas choosing to stay on earth and then becoming human and being a full time member of Team Free Will!!!
