‘Supernatural’ Spoilers: Details on Castiel’s (and Jim Beaver’s) Returns

We’re finally getting some solid information on Castiel’s upcoming return, thanks to EP Robert Singer. He told Zap2It at a Television Critics Association party that Cas will be different when he returns in Episode 17 for a three-show arc:

“When they run across Castiel, it’s a very different kind of Castiel. Dean has a bit of a moral dilemma in regard to Castiel in that first episode. Dean does some soul searching.”

And in news that will likely cheer up fans left disappointed by how the writers handled Cas’s “death” in Episode 2, Singer promised a more satisfying conclusion this time:

“It will feel like some sort of closure, yes. Not in the first episode back, of course, but by the third, absolutely.”

Singer also gave official confirmation that Jim Beaver will return, saying that “Jim will be back, in one form or another, this season.”

Singer further noted that they will end this season on a cliffhanger, regardless of whether they have word on a Season 8 pickup, saying they “like to be optimistic” and will write the cliffhanger and “see what happens.”

What do you think of Singer’s assurance of closure for Cas? Do you think Bobby will return as a ghost? And how about the prospect of being left in the lurch if the show is cancelled?

    It looks like Cass is coming back but just for closure purposes! Hmmm… Can’t be ungrateful, but… I’d expect more! Of course this season made me expect nothing, honestly, even cancellation of the show! The first seasons were good with just the brothers but the show progressed and developed and this year is very dark. Killing off high-impact characters never works! Of course nothing is forever, but I really have faith in Supernatural and a couple of more good years!

    I would hate to see cas leave for good he is one of my favorite characters :( and I hate that bobby died all the main characters die for good but the brothers its getting old. Case and bobby should be the Mai characters too case was like there brother and bob is like there dad now they have no one.

    Glad that Cas is coming back, but not glad that it is for closure.  I think Bobby comes back as a ghost just because of Dean’s suddenly empty beer bottle.

  • Gus

    There are little things in this season but incoherent and inconsistent! Dean’s empty bottle, his perception of time among others! I watched a random episode of the first season and I’m safe to say that it was a Supernatural Thriller. I look back a little closer and I realize how everyone expected nothing from season 6 right after the apocalypse. However season 6 was pretty full with Eve, Cas & Crowley, soulless Sam, Purgatory plus good fillers. On the other hand, season 7 is what? Really good premiere which looked like continuance of the last season. 2nd episode promising, Bobby’s death sad but strong and after that chaos. 75% of the episodes are about nothing. I mean, not nothing, it is clearly about character growth and feelings, and grief. But is this really Supernatural or some kind of soap opera! Don’t get me wrong, this is my top show and this is why I have high expectations.

    I love this show there is nothing else worth watching on any more as far as I can see Cas returning should not be for closure they need to bring him back for keeps and as for Bobby he is needed big time and Having Cas come back could bring Bobby back as a whole they can’t cancel in my books the best show on TV
