4. Cass breaks Dean out of the green room in "Lucifer Rising"
This whole scene was amazing, from showing up unexpectedly to slamming Dean against the wall to blowing Zachariah away with the sigil to revealing that Lilith was the final seal to zapping Dean the hell out of Dodge. It was probably one of the biggest "hell, yeah!" moments of the entire season. Cass chose humanity, and Dean in particular, over heaven in a last-ditch effort to save the world. We'll just gloss over the fact that it didn't work out so well...
3. "Hey, assbutt!" in "Swan Song"
Best way to lighten an incredibly tense situation ever. I mean, assbutt is such a horrible insult, but it's so perfectly Castiel; close but just not quite. And yet again, it's a self-sacrificing moment for him as he follows that wonderful insult with a holy oil Molotov that gets rid of Michael but earns him instantaneous death at the hands of Lucifer.
2. The Conversation in "The Man Who Would Be King"
You all know the one I'm talking about; the heart-wrenching scene at the end of the episode. It's their breakup scene, really. And I realize that they aren't a couple, but you don't have to be a couple to break up with someone. These two are family. They're friends. Those are both relationships you can break from. At this point in both their lives, neither one has a lot of family or friends just lying around to take the place of one lost. In this scene, they both lay it all on the line. They each believe wholeheartedly that they are right, that if the other one just trusts them, everything will be all right, it will all work out. But neither can make their way to the other's point of view, and they can't find common ground, either. They're sorry that it came to this, but each will do what they have to do now, regardless of the consequences. It's ruinous, for them and for the viewer.
1. Castiel comes forth in "Lazarus Rising"
I mean, let's face it: this is one badass character introduction. When I saw this episode for the first time, I had no idea what was happening, but I knew it was huge. On this show, things don't just swat away a rock-salt blast and Ruby's knife to the chest like they were flies. But Castiel did. And then just when things couldn't get any crazier, wings! Angel of the Lord in the house! And that's when all the viewers knew Dean's life would never be the same.
And there we have it! What are your favorite Castiel moments? What did I miss? Why isn't it September 23rd already so we can get some resolution to God!Castiel?
