If the Winter Soldier was responsible for the Kennedy assassination and Magneto tried to STOP the Kennedy assassination then that must mean somehow Magneto lost a fight to a guy wITH AN ENTirE ARm MADE OF METAL
"[Dean would] be attracted to someone who walked in the door, slaughtered everybody and walked out, and then he would say, ‘Who’s that?’" — Eric Kripke
"I always wanted Ash to kick a door open— Somebody’s in trouble, and all of a sudden [kicks door] he gets in, shoots the bad guy, flips his hair and walks out." — Chad Lindberg
I’m not sure people appreciate how fucking into Ash Dean was.
1. A discussion with Castiel about her father, thereby confirming once an for all, that Jimmy is in fact in heaven and not still in Cas’ vessel.
2. A way to save Castiel because Claire should have some of his residual grace inside of her.
That second point warrants the most discussion I think. It would make the throw away 9x11 grace plot point not so throw away anymore…
First of all: CLAIRE IS BACK, THIS IS SO AWESOME!!
Second, that second point, that didn’t even occur to me, but it’s a brilliant theory, and would make so much sense!! But I also think the first point IS one of the reasons they’re bringing her back, just to settle the matter once and for all, and in canon. And if Cas manages to also get permission from Claire to use the vessel even though Jimmy’s not alive anymore, that would be so wonderful - I’ve seen many Cas detractors in fandom say (among other things) that’s not okay that Cas is using Jimmy’s body, still, and lbr it’s not like TBTP are ever gonna give Misha OR Cas up, so that’s a nice way to settle it.
