“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”

My personal dislike of Cas shouldn’t effect your enjoyment of the character. But since you asked, there isn’t “a” reason, there are several reasons why I don’t like Cas. I didn’t mind Cas in season 4, liked him until he released Sam from the panic room. In season 5 Cas never owned his part of knowingly starting the Apocalypse (Dean was tortured into breaking the 1st seal and Sam was manipulated his entire life to break the last seal, neither one knew Lilith was the last seal) while blaming the brothers in season 5 for the Apocalypse. Castiel did his best to help the Winchester brothers so I was okay with the character until he beat Dean in the alley way (made 1000x worse when destielers romanticized that scene). Dean was at his lowest and he was literally nearly kicked to death when he was down. Then season 6 happened and it’s been downhill since.
Season 6. Cas never told Dean for 1 year that Sam was hunting with Gramps to capture Alphas for him and Crowley. When Dean asked in 6.03 who got Sam out of the Cage, Cas lied and said he didn’t know. Cas did know that something was wrong with Sam but never followed up because he was making deals with Crowley to find purgatory. By Family Matters, Cas knew that Sam was still trapped in the Cage and still never fessed up that soulless Sam was his doing. In Caged Heat, Cas discouraged Dean from attempting to rescue Sam from Hell by saying he could go crazy and die……because that’s worse than ETERNAL TORTURE IN HELL? Sam has God’s special pass to go to heaven whenever he died topside so worse case scenario, Sam goes to heaven which is, I dunno, BETTER THAN ETERNAL TORTURE IN HELL!
I asked/begged whole bunch of Cas fans to explain Cas’ actions in Caged Heat and every single one of them said a variation of “writer negligence”. I don’t want “shitty writing” excuse, I want reasons to why Cas thought Eternal Torture was the better option. Heck, just say he’s the dumbest angel in the garrison or something, which will be brought up later.
in Who Would Be King, Cas patted himself on the back for stopping the Apocalypse, no dumbass, that was the Winchester brothers who did most of the work and suffered 180 years of Hell torture for it. Cas referred to himself as the Winchester guardians even though he advised Dean to leave Sam in hell for ETERNAL TORTURE. Obviously I can’t let go of Caged Heat debacle. And then those warning he gave to Dean about Sam going crazy/dying topside (which again, according to Cas is worse than ETERNAL TORTURE IN HELL) he callously attacked Sam and destroyed the only protection between him and Hell.
Sam has only been kind to Cas (while Cas called him an Abomination even though it was not his fault he was infected with demon blood, just like he called the innocent Nephillian an Abomination) and just to distract Dean, he committed a malicious, violent attack that creates a slow and cruel death on somebody he calls a friend and said he was a guardian of.
Then Cas drank all those purgatory souls, refused to heal Sam because he’s pissed at Dean (once again Sam has nothing to do with Cas’ hissy fit, it was all about Cas being mad at Dean) and go on to murder thousands of humans and angels because he didn’t like their opinions. Heh, that sounds like our SPN fandom doesn’t it? You have a different opinion and opposing fans send you anons hate.
Now if Cas properly made amends, maybe I could forgive him. But Cas didn’t apologize to Sam, he apologized to Dean. WTF? Then he melted into black goo and the next time he reappeared a blank slate, Dean had to use deception because knowing Cas he would run away from the consequence of his actions, which he tried to he realized Sam was dying in a mental institution. That’s the common theme with Castiel, his sheer lack of accountability. He knew Lilith was the last seal but blamed the Winchester brothers for the Apocalypse. He knew something was wrong with soulless Sam and ignored it. Lied to Dean’s face about who took Sam out of the Cage and then advised him to leave Sam in the Cage. Threw the Winchester brothers into an alternate world without weapons or knowledge of the new world to be bait for Virgil so Cas can steal the heaven weapons. Yeah yeah, Cas finally apologized to Sam in Born Again Identity (though Sam was crazy and didn’t hear him) and said he should never have broken his wall. No shit Sherlock!
When Cas took on Sam’s Hell damage to himself, I thought I would be okay with Cas except I wasn’t. If Cas was still Cas, I would probably move on and either grow to like him again or be indifferent. But Cas changed dramatically since season 4, he went from being a badass, sassy, didn’t take shit from anyone, powerful, and *gasp* smart to…..a comic relief ….. to the most socially inept angel when every single other angel characters were culturally aware and easily move through human society. Cas’ cluelessness is exaggerated so much that most of the time he’s on screen, he’s 100% “HOW DO HUMAN WORK”, and I just cringe and groan and get mad again all over again.
Season 8. If I wasn’t convinced before that Cas is way past his expiration date, I am now. Castiel attacks one of the Winchester brothers, it must be Tuesday, or Friday, or Wednesday. Castiel makes a bad decision, again. Castiel is fooled, again, Castiel believes he is right, again. The world is in danger of being destroyed/overrun by supernatural beings, again because Castiel fucked up. And the Winchester brothers will be cleaning up his mess, again. Sam and Dean may have escaped Mystery Spot, but apparently Castiel hasn’t and we have to suffer through the rerun of Castiel’s non-greatest hits.
As for Misha, I’m mostly indifferent but it doesn’t help when he queerbaits his minions, giving them false hope that destiel will become canon when Misha is not the writers and not the showrunners or the executives. I have to think that Misha is not a total idiot and knows that Jensen hates the destiel ship but Misha continues to egg on his fans and when they don’t get their way, they blame Jensen for being in the way of destiel becoming canon instead of holding Misha responsible for his queerbaiting.
I’ll agree with all of that, especially the making Cas a comic interest and the most stupid angel in the garrison part. I will add one more. When Cas blackmailed Jimmy Novak into taking him back by threatening to use his daughter for eternity instead, he promised Jimmy that the angels would look after Claire and her mother Amelia for the rest of their lives. He then switches sides, rebelling against the angels, which may well have left Claire and Amelia hanging out there all alone during a coming Apocalypse. And in all the years since he has never once showed one iota of concern for those he swore to protect. Not a sentence that once he took over heaven he set up a protection detail. Not a word about how with tons of angels stuck on earth blaming him for getting evicted that maybe, just maybe the angels might want to end the Novak ability to carry a vessel line. Nothing. Actually I hate him for another thing, using Claire to get Jimmy on board was the scuzziest thing ever.
Oh my god all very important things that I have wanted to talk about but never got around to God Bless this post
