“I found the acting obvious and distracting. Of course, the actor hasn’t had much to do but fret over Jack, for the last few years. His acting has been limited to redundant lines about Jack’s goodness. And his facial expressions are largely eye rolling and pursed lips. Getting an emotional monologue and a death scene overloaded Misha’s. I am so glad he is dead. I used to love Castiel. But, I haven’t been able to tolerate him for some time.”
You’re not wrong here, Shannon —
It’s unfortunate that Castiel has been “reduced” to being Jack’s nurse maid and baby sitter for the past few seasons. I get that the writers wanted to make him more human and more relatable, but it’s a shame that it’s gotten easy to forget he’s even an angel. When he does do something that shows us his powers, it’s almost a surprise. It shouldn’t be that way.
