I need you all to understand something about last weeks episode.
Last year, in April 2012, about when my Supernatural obsession was peaking on the excitement of being a brand new fan, I had several dreams featuring various cast and characters from the show. One in particular stood out to me. In this dream, someone had figured out a spell that could catch and bind angels, and they had caught Castiel with this. The signature element that showed this spell was in place was three flames floating in front of his forehead. When the spell was broken later on during the dream, it was replaced with three bleeding puncture wounds in the forehead. When I watched 8x10 with the control mechanism of Samandriel being tapped into by drilling holes into the forehead, I was staring with my mouth open thinking “No way… not possible…" I had that dream nearly 9 months ago, and then something eerily similar shows up in an actual episode. It was too crazy of a coincidence.
The idea of an angel binding spell that could put an angel completely under a villains control was something really intriguing to me actually. I wanted to turn it into a comic or some kind of short story but college ate my time away and I never got around to trying something.
Looks like Supernatural itself beat me to it anyways.
