It seems that there are things worse than finding out God has turned against you. As ‘Supernatural’ heads into its 15th and final season, one of the show’s biggest wallops lingers from the end of Season 14— God was no longer benevolent and demonstrated this by slaying Jack Kline (Alexander Calvert) and opening the gates of hell, unleashing an army of the undead.
But as Misha Collins says, it’s the death of Jack that crushes Castiel more than God going bad. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the actor said:
“Cas actually gave up on his dad, God, in Season 9 I wanna say. I think that he has come to terms with the fact that God is not going to be the father figure that he had hoped for. So I think the pill is a little easier to swallow of God showing up and being the big bad.”
But Collins doesn’t discount this new threat level, calling the twist a “shock to the system… This is, as far as we know, the most powerful being in the universe and he’s against us, and we thought he was good.”
But following the death of his “son” Jack, even though he had seemingly turned evil, his death will devastate Cas.
“Cas is not coping well with Jack’s death because he feels responsible. He made a promise that he was going to protect Jack and now, not only did Jack sort of turn toward the dark side, but he also died and it feels like a huge failure for him.”
It’s highly unlikely that Jack won’t return somehow in Season 15, as he was shown waking up in The Empty.
‘Supernatural’ will begin its final season on October 10th on The CW.
