Castiel becoming a human on Supernatural has been full of firsts this season. In the last episode we saw him have sex, and now he's got a job and prepares for his first date! But the "date" in question isn't exactly what he was expecting. "Heaven Can't Wait" also introduces a new angel who is a fan of euthanasia and manages to give us an answer about how to reopen Heaven (spoiler alert, they can't). And if you thought Dean acting like a dog was the funniest moment of the season, Castiel's lullaby tops Dean acting like a dog hands down.
Castiel is posing as a guy named "Steve" and is hard at work at the Gas-n-Sip, filling coffee pots and slushy machines, preparing food, and cleaning bathrooms. It's a pretty monotonous job to say the very least, but his super hot boss, a single mom named Nora, takes a liking to the former angel and asks him to go over to her place. Damn, Castiel doesn't need to do anything; hot chicks are just drawn to him like a moth to a flame.
Castiel calls Dean with a case about exploding people and he goes on a solo mission, leaving Sam behind because of the mysterious friction between Castiel and Zeke. The friction is hardly mysterious to some of us, but for those who aren’t completely in tune with what is going down, I think it’s safe to assume that Castiel and Zeke may have been at odds with each other for some time. This is a huge assumption on my part. However, given Zeke’s reaction which caused Dean to give Castiel the boot, it’s my firm belief that there is some serious history between the two.
Dean arrives in town and invites Castiel to tag along as his co-pilot. Nothing was funnier than seeing just how much pride Castiel has taking in his new job. Flash to Sam and Crowley talking about having him help them read the tablet in order to help them, with Sam implying that Crowley isn’t that much of a douche anymore, but alas, he claims he is to the last drop. One look at the crime scene and Castiel recognized the M.O. It's an angel of mercy, one who takes away pain by killing angels instantly. Now that he's on Earth, he's continuing his mission. He's basically a Euthanasia Angel (or a Euthan-Angel).
With some much needed help and advice from Dean, Castiel is able to go on his date with Nora. Only it turns out she wasn't inviting him on a date, she was inviting him over to babysit while she goes out on a date. The only thing better than Castiel on a date is him with a baby. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Castiel, but I am not sure how I'd feel about leaving him alone with my son, Dean. Last week, I was more than certain that there was nothing on Supernatural that could ever make me laugh more than Dean acting like a dog. It turns out that it's not even close to being true. Castiel sings "Believe It or Not," the theme song to The Greatest American Hero, as a lullaby, to get the baby to stop crying. Out of EVERY song in the world, Castiel had to sing THAT song! I may have cried because I was laughing so hard at last week’s episode, but I’m laughing so hard again that not only am I crying, but my stomach is cramping up.
Things take a turn for the worst when the Euthan-Angel, Ephram, shows up. He tracked Castiel because of his pain and torment and wants to "cure" him of his humanity. Dean shows up to help (after he puts all the clues together), but he remains ineffective as always. Seriously, when is Dean gonna learn that he can't fight an angel in hand-to-hand combat? Castiel gets the save by stabbing Ephram with the angel blade. In the end, he wants to try and help gets the angels back to Heaven, but Dean lies again and insists that they've got it taken care of. I’m starting to think that the theme of this season is clearly all about Dean lying to his closest friends, even if it is for their own good.
Back at the Men Of Letters HQ, Kevin has translated the Angel Tablet into an equally unreadable dead language. With no other options, Sam and Kevin ask Crowley to help by threatening to hand him over to Abaddon. Crowley agrees, but only if they let him make a phone call. Luckily, this means a return of the good old fashioned Blood Goblet from season one for a demon call. Nothing funnier than watching a demon try to make a call, only to be put on hold. Crowley connects with Abaddon and is upset to learn she's undoing all of his bureaucracy and deals, but there's not a damn thing that he can do about any of it. Hey Crowley, perhaps if you got off your high horse and helped our boys, maybe you could undo all of Abbadon’s work? Just a thought, feel free to get back to me when you’ve finally realized just how f***ed you are without the help of the Winchesters.
The phone call doesn't really do a whole lot, but Crowley upholds his end of the deal anyway, as well he should. But it's bad news, of course, as he explains that Metatron's spell is irreversible and it's impossible to reopen Heaven. My guess is that he's lying or there's a loophole, because it would be extremely unlikely that the boys would just accept this kind of crap and just move on with their lives.On next week’s episode of Supernatural: It's a good, old-fashioned ghost story, giving us fans some nice flashbacks to a young Dean Winchester. The new episode will air next Tuesday at 9 pm EST. Until then, do as Dean does and stay classy! http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
