Is Cas Alive or Dead? Sera Gamble Gives Us the Answer

Is anything left of Cas besides a soggy trenchcoat? Sera Gamble answered the question on all our minds, in an interview with TVLine.

  • Unfortunately, Gamble confirmed what we have all feared: Cas is dead. The Leviathans were too much for his vessel, and it disintegrated. But they are leaving his fate somewhat ambiguous, for future storyline purposes:

“We purposely left it ambiguous. In the life of the show, [Sam and Dean] just suffered the death of one of their best friends, something that they are dealing with in a serious and substantial way…Death is a funny thing on Supernatural because we’re a show about life beyond the grave, but this is one of most serious losses that Sam and Dean have had to face in the life of the series.”

  • But cheer up, Cas fans! Gamble also said that we have not seen the last of Misha:

“It has always been our intention to bring back Misha in some form. When we called Misha to let him know that we had this plan for the character, we talked about this on a longer schedule than in these first two episodes. We certainly can’t say too much about where the story is going to go, but we love Misha and want to continue to work with him.”

  • Addressing the complaints that Cas’s death scene was too subdued and seemingly unimpactful, Gamble explained the writers’ thought process:

“This is all part of the story that launches the season. So, we didn’t think of [his death] as having more or less impact; we think of all of this as the big kickoff.”

  • Furthering that point, the show’s chapter on the world of angels has come to a close, but that does not mean we will no longer be seeing individuals angels:

“The epic War in Heaven storyline has pretty much come to an end — at least for now — but individual stories that include angels that are more character-based or more about the impact that the previous wars have had, we have plans for those.”

  • Regarding this week’s episode, we will not meet the Leviathan boss yet, but we will learn more about those creatures.

    That was the most horrible death EVER in the history of TV! Cas was one of the main characters and to just off him like that quickly is a disgrace! He was one of my favorite characters and when i first saw that I’m like “Yeah, he’s coming back. The writers wouldn’t be that cruel.” But I was WRONG! Why do the writers have to kill off my favorite characters all the time! First it was John, then Gabriel, then Balthazar, and now CASTIEL! If they don’t change their mind about Castiel. I am seriously going to stop watching the show.

    lol and that episode had the lowest ratings supernatural has ever gotten. That’s what happens when you kill off the best thing the show has going for it. Idiots.

    Guys, just because Cas is dead doesn’t mean that the show will be absolute trash. Supernatural was awesome before Cas came into the story, it was still awesome when Cas was apart of the story, and I have faith that the show will still be awesome even though Cas has died. Yes, I will miss him (Favorite character man!), but I’m not going to stop watching it because of this. If you only watch Supernatural because of Cas, then you’re not Supernatural fans, but Castiel/Misha fans (/Nothing/ wrong with that, just making a point). Please, don’t give up on this fantastic show. They /did/ say that they would bring Misha back as another character. So don’t be too depressed! :)
