the other absurd thing about cas ‘interrogating’ another angel and asking sam and dean for help is um
in 6x19, when cas’ grace was suppressed by eve, he was perfectly capable of extracting the information he needed from a creature with only human means at his disposal like
why would he need help??? what
Wasn’t that one of Eve’s minions? They may not have as much power as an angel.
I guess the main reason is so they can have an excuse to get Dean into torturing so we can see Sam’s reaction.
This seems to be the one thing the show is relatively consistent on (overall) - one of the reasons I dislike 6x19 is because of how heavy-handed they were in saying Cas torturing = Cas bad, wrong, and damaged.
but why make cas okay with torturing an angel in the first place didn’t he say like four episodes ago that he didn’t want violence when dealing with his siblings
Yes, although that was a completely innocent angel, being tortured by one of his enemies. I could see him viewing this as different.
I’ve always assumed that Cas is experienced in torturing and getting the job done, not just when he’s “bad” (like late season 6), but throughout his existence. If he goes back to this for what he sees as a greater good and then starts to realize that isn’t the case, and it’s not worth the cost to others and to your psyche, then that would interest me.
As it is I get the feeling his part in it is minor, it’s not really about him, and more about Dean torturing (and I have a feeling Dean will end up killing this angel).
I guess I’ll have to wait and see. Maybe I should be relieved this isn’t a female angel and give up on the rest.
