I think the only reason we wouldn’t see Cas in season 10 is if Misha decides he doesn’t want to do the show any more.
The narrative since the beginning of season 8 has put Cas into an important position not only with the Winchesters (and specifically Dean), but also with the war for heaven and the angel factions.
Right now, Cas is pretty much literally the only person who’s going to be able to guide Dean through the redemption storyline that’s coming up, because part of Dean’s redemption is going to hinge on him being able to figure out what it is that Sam wants from him and why it’s important. That’s not something Dean is going to be able to get directly from Sam, because neither he nor Sam realizes that the two of them are talking past each other.
They both think they know what the other one wants, and why they behave the way they do, but it’s pretty clear in the narrative that this is not true. Cas is the only person Dean would even trust to talk to him about Sam.
Maybe Charlie would be an option, but right now she’s off in Oz, adventuring. Kevin might be an option, but he’s off haunting his mom, and Linda isn’t likely going to trust her son with the Winchesters again in any case. Garth, well, Dean doesn’t really think Garth is too smart.
That leaves Crowley, and Dean may be working with him, but he doesn’t trust Crowley any further than he can throw him. Crowley is always looking out for #1, and that’s himself; Dean knows exactly what kind of manipulation Crowley is capable of. He’s always been like that, and Dean’s always known that, but they made a big point of it in “First Born,” just to make sure we’re all on the same page.
So the fact that he needs and trusts Cas is hugely important, because the Mark of Cain is changing Dean, making him more paranoid and more prone to violence and less able to see shades of gray, less able to trust anybody, if there’s anybody who can get through to Dean about Sam, it’s going to have to be Cas.
Then there’s the war for heaven, where, Cas’ unique perspective is going to be really important because he’s had so much experience with both the rebels and the command structure of heaven. Cas is going to be pivotal in taking down Metatron because, again, he’s had more contact with him than anybody but Gadreel and he’s experienced how Metatron manipulates angels.
So Cas is important to resolving the big story arcs we’re seeing set up this season, but that’s not going to happen until season 10, because we’re in the middle of the story right now. Dean’s got to hit bottom before he can start putting himself back together, the angels have to try to take down Metatron and fail so that Cas can put all the factions back together into one unit, and Dean and Sam have to figure things out between themselves and take out Abaddon and help Cas get heaven re-opened, and there’s not enough time to address all of those things in the eight episodes we have left in season 9.
We go through this kind of Cas/Misha panic every year when it’s time to announce contract renewals, and we’ve gotten Cas back every season, even if not as a regular. I can’t imagine season 10 is going to be any different.
To me this was honestly the scariest scene in the film.
Thank god that little girl will never have the chance to.
Wow this is the most disturbing bit of rape culture I’ve seen all day
This is so fucking repulsive this is seriously a fucking tip sheet for abusers holy fuck no
MAKE SURE THEY CRY AND THEN GIVE THEM ALCOHOL AFTERWARD SO THEY THINK YOU STILL LOVE THEM this is fucking disgusting what the FUCK
I think I’m gonna be sick
"Make sure it ends in tears." That’s not love.
"aftercare" is literally grooming your abused, emotionally traumatised partner into a state of comfort so that you can abuse them again
i hate this world
"Rape culture" "abuse" "trauma" ???????? ?? ? ?? ? ???? ? ?
Are yoU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!!? This is a guideline for couples who ENJOY spanking in their relationship, for a wide variety of reasons, like the fact that it’s a KINK!!!!!! IT’S CONSIDERED A PART OF BDSM CULTURE!!!! Notice the very first image says "CONSENTING ADULTS ONLY!!!" THIS IS NOT ABUSE, THIS IS FETISH!!!
THE “AFTERCARE” THAT YOU ARE BITCHING ABOUT IS A **N.E.C.E.S.S.A.R.Y.** PART OF ANY SCENES OR PLAYS THAT A COUPLE PARTICIPATES IN!!! IT’S LITERALLY WHERE YOU TAKE CARE OF AND LOVE ON YOUR PARTNER THAT WAS PUT THROUGH ANY STRESSING ACTS DURING THE SCENE!!!! IT’S A VERY IMPORTANT THING THAT EVERY HEALTHY BDSM RELATED SCENARIO SHOULD END IN!!!!!!!!
OH MY GOD, CAN SOMEONE THAT HAS A MORE EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE OF ALL THIS EXPLAIN IT IN MORE DETAIL FOR ME PLEASE?? I AM TOO ANGRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO IT!!!!!!

I don’t care who you are or what you believe in religion wise. You need to watch this video. It shows from the side of the bully and the person being bullied. I feel as if this should be on everyone’s blog to show you care.
This is the most powerful video I have ever seen. It needs to be displayed at every school shown to every student they need to see this!
going to try and get this to be shown at my school
Amazing message, I’m an atheist and I believe these things should be taught and shown everywhere. They showed the two sides very well and didn’t make it super cheesy
I want every one of my followers to watch this please. You need to.
