BUT YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIES, GAMBLE.
lol jk this better be true or i’ll.. pull a face.
Sera Gamble, givememyremote.com after 7.01 aired (via nerdishh)
it’s bad that i really won’t believe a word of this until i’m proven wrong. no faith at all. >:)

“”It was a long time coming,” he tells us. “[I have] mixed feelings about it. It’s exciting to have other prospects now and it’s fun to do other roles, so I’m looking forward to doing some other stuff. I will miss the old crew up on Supernatural in Vancouver.”
As of now, Collins would only confirm that Castiel will appear in the first two episodes of season seven opposite the Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean. However, fans looking forward to seeing Castiel’s unexpected brand of humor should prepare themselves for some changes.
“The character is not providing that comic relief anymore, which I think is fine. I think that sort of ran its course,” Collins says. “It’s one of the things that’s great about the show. They don’t rest on their laurels. Just because something is working, doesn’t mean they keep doing it. They like to change it up and try something new and it doesn’t get stale—and that’s cool.”
“I’m not playing the fish out of water sidekick anymore—that element is gone,” Collins continues, joking, “The show is not going to be funny anymore. Period.”
“He’s God and he’s trying to rectify the wrongs in the world and having a difficult time doing it and meeting with both external and internal obstacles.”
Could one of those obstacles be his friendship with Dean? Of Cas’ relationship with Dean, Collins would only say it’s “definitely a changed and diminished dynamic.” Take from that what you will.”
disclaimer: i am in no way in favour of violence towards sera gamble. that said, this made me fucking laugh so i’m reblogging anyway.
p.s yes cas, you’re adorable, we know. behave yourself.
before I leave for the day, I have to say this:
Please and thank you.
if they ARE going to get rid of him, all of those things i would like to see happen. but as it is, i have zero faith in sera gamble and have disliked most thing she’s done as a showrunner.. so i don’t think it will. it’s nice to have hope though, eh?
it’s not enough that she butchers a character that has become very popular over the last three series in the space of one, but to then go and get rid of him (possibly permanently, but what’s the betting a new vessel pops up sooner or later?) in two episodes with little hope of redemption? total fucking bullshit. it shows a complete lack of respect on her part for both the character and the actor that plays him. especially as it appears that misha doesn’t know everything about what’s going on past that two episode block.
she wants the whole thing to be about sam and dean, which i get, i do. because that’s how the show started. but for me personally i think the peripheral characters like cas, bobby, balthazar, gabriel etc. make it entirely more interesting. sam and dean just riding around having all the worst shit happening to them just gets depressing after a while - the appearance of cas in s4 was a nice respite from the relentless shower of shit that happens to the winchesters on a weekly basis. i mean at least then there was cas to at least raise a smile every now and again.
it also doesn’t help that thanks to sera’s big ideas i really couldn’t give a fuck what happens to dean, seeing a big portion of what happened to cas in series 6 was his fault (UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERT DUN DUN DUN) harsh, maybe. but fuck it - he’s my favourite character - so i’m going to be pissed off if i see him ruined in such a spectacular fashion. so in the process of ruining cas’ character, she’s also diminished any sympathy i had for one of the MAIN characters so.. didn’t really think that one through. for me it isn’t even a shipper issue. i’d actually quite like it if cas stuck around even as an enemy - it’s just the poor planning (s6 was disjointed as fuck) and dogged unwillingness to listen to any criticism - even to the point where it feels like she’s mocking anyone that has opinions other than hers - that gets me.
anyway, all of this is speculation as it stands at the minute - i still have the blind hope that we might be being teased and this is all to get people tuning in to season 7. and if it is, good on them because it’s fucking working. if not? i’ll probably watch cas get destroyed for good (or until they put him in a woman’s vessel, which is another thing i keep thinking will happen) and then leave the show alone. there’s lots of other wonderful shows out there that don’t piss me off half as much so i’ll happily go on my way and watch those instead.
just as an aside, i think people physically threatening sera gamble are about as idiotic as sera gamble. rather than being a fucking nobber and an internet tough guy, just let your channel flicking finger do the talking - if you don’t like it, turn the fucking thing off until they put edlund in charge to fix everything. that’s what i’m planning on doing and if that day never comes? oh well.
p.s if she goes and proves me wrong, i will gladly retract all of this and stop using the #sera gamble couldn’t organise a piss-up in a brewery tag - in the meantime? LOLNO. i’m convinced that the woman will be the downfall of what was, up until the middle of last season, an awesome show, and to me that’s just tragic.
