Metatron hasn’t been spotted on SUPERNATURAL since April, but the former Scribe of God will be making a return appearance in the next episode.
With the Darkness now unleashed upon the world and even the majority of existing angels and demons rather clueless about how to stop it, Sam recently suggested that Metatron may have valuable information that could help the Winchesters in their fight against this new (old) evil. Was the former scribe privy to any helpful tips from God and his archangels about how they defeated the Darkness? That’s what Sam is hoping. But Metatron disappeared in to the wind when Castiel and Sam removed his grace and left him human.
However, it turns out that he may not be very good at hiding. Apparently Metatron has been working as a videographer at a local news station and while he’s generally behind the scenes, a reflection reveals his whereabouts and sends Castiel off to find the former angel.
During a recent visit to the SUPERNATURAL set in Vancouver, actor Misha Collins wouldn’t tell us exactly what Metatron tells Castiel when the pair are reunited, but he did say that Cas feels a bit conflicted about Metatron.
“Metatron is more or less human now, which is a burden that Cas has had to bear in the past,” Collins teased. “And I think Cas feels a certain amount of empathy. While Cas is not a huge fan of Metatron, I think he ultimately ends up feeling a little bit of empathy for him because he’s experiencing the human experience for the first time. And all of its difficulties.”
Hrm….does he feel enough empathy for him to let him go or will he return Metatron to the angels, who are clearly ostracizing Cas as a result of him helping to break Metatron out of Heaven’s jail. Whatever Cas decides, we suspect the wily former angel might take this opportunity to mess with Castiel.
Don’t miss Metatron’s return to SUPERNATURAL on November 11 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. And stay tuned, because we’ll have more from Collins about Castiel before the next episode airs.
