For this weeks video, I chose to go about it from a different angle. Inspired by The WFB article that focused on how demons have changed during the run of the show, I decided to focus on angels as it fits the episode, the fan video I wanted to highlight and the new monster that was added to Supernatural mythology.

Like demons, angels have been stripped from their mystery. In earlier days they were sometimes even worse than demons and quite the force to recon with. Castiel seemed to be the only one who even tried to understand humanity and protect it. Later in the series, Samandriel thought similarly, but usually, the Winchesters could say "Angels are dicks" with good reason. In old times we had Lucifer, Michael, Uriel, Raphael, Gabriel, Balthazar, Zachariah, Joshua and Anna to name a few. They were the original angels before bureaucracy kicked in.

I am not into politics but even with the new order some angels had spunk: Naomi, Samandriel and Gadreel to name a few, but we also got Malachi, Metatron, Bartholomew and Hannah who were very different compared to the others.

Angel lore is also always expanding and even if our views might differ in what we think about them it is good to always have something new. We have had Angel sub-classes such as Cherubs, which includes Cupids. They are third class angels. Rit Zien are "hands of mercy" angel field medics and on this episode we got Grigoris, an elite squad of watcher angels who started to prey humanity. The character Tamiel and the Grigori lore made me very interested in them and gave me a spark to the angels that I have felt is sometimes missing. He reminded me of Raphael, Uriel and Lucifer because of the lack of respect for humankind.

"There were hundreds of us, but now... each of our names inscribed on our swords. A brotherhood of perfectly crafted, engineered beings sent to protect you pathetic, bottom-feeding disasters." - Tamiel

Of course we can't forget the archangels, who are the most powerful angels, the scribe of God or the most controversial angels (that I have had no trouble with myself) the rogue and Reaper angels. Also there was a Nephilim that is an offspring of humans and angels. It is considered an abomination like the Grigori.

So, this video honors the angels but it also shows the past of Claire and Cas (that fits this episode). We've seen a lot more story since Castiel used her as vessel and saw himself as a soldier of God.



Supernatural - Evil Angel made by Asmothesly's channel 

Evil Angel by Breaking Benjamin 

Hold it together, birds of a feather,
Nothing but lies and crooked wings.
I have the answer, spreading the cancer,
You are the faith inside me.

No, don't
Leave me to die here,
Help me survive here.
Alone, don't remember, remember.

[Chorus:]
Put me to sleep evil angel.
Open your wings evil angel.

A-ah.

I'm a believer,
Nothing could be worse,
All these imaginary friends.
Hiding betrayal,
Driving the nail,
Hoping to find a savior.

No, don't
Leave me to die here,
Help me survive here.
Alone, don't
Surrender, surrender.

[Chorus:]
Oh.
Fly over me evil angel.
Why can't I breathe evil angel?

[Chorus:]
Oh.

Fly over me evil angel.
Why can't I breathe evil angel?

So which ones were your favorite angels? What thoughts does the song or the video give you? What did you think about the Grigori?

Thanks!

and I hope so too. You know, the Grigori had really the old vibe of the earlier angels with him and he also felt really menacing. I mean he was strong tossing the heroes about and only by surprise he was won. I think heroes always need an enemy that is tough to beat and not to be "angel number 4" "Demon number 2" or "Vampire number 7". I mean if the Alpha vampire would appear in the episode I would yell the boys to run. He slaughtered how many from the hunter group by himself alone?

I have also been watching Daredevil and one thing on it's fights is that the hero is a human. He gets tired if he is fighting against a group of villains, he gets hurt, the fights are pretty brutal and he is using any possibility to come out as a winner. I admit it. Those fights alone have made me scream and cover my eyes. It is of course a different show but I would love to see more tough fights with the guys. ;)
