Supernatural Season Seven Speculation, Last Minute edition.
In a concentrated effort to escape as much reality as possible (and also to have something to point at and laugh later in the season when I am horribly wrong), I am hereby posting the following:


Last minute slap-dash season 7 Supernatural theories.

Right. Aside from the made-of-crack monster egg theory I posted earlier, here’s some things I think might be happening starting Friday.

-Sam’s wall. Has to be an issue of some kind for a while. He’ll be a hurtin’ puppy, and probably go more than a little nuts for a while, but about a quarter of the way into the season it will either be THE issue, or won’t be an issue at all.

-Castiel. Epic level dumbass. Sorry. Had to get that out. He’s not going to find his assumed position easy or comfortable. And, he’s another wayward son now, isn’t he? He’s certainly turning his back on his Dad. Kind of like Sam did... Not intending to equate Stanford with the Throne of Heaven, but there you are.

-Kali. Since Kali is still 'On The Wall' so to speak, I'm thinking other deities are going to try to rise, possibly attacking Castiel’s new and very unstable position. I tried to write fic about this a few weeks ago, but it ended up being three pages of Crowley ranting at Castiel about tactics and power vacuums and chains of command and deity disenfranchisement and whatnot and was very very frigging boring. So. Somewhere out there is Kali, survivor of the massacre momentary inconveniencing of several non-Judeo-Christian deities. Now there’s a new ‘God’, running on stolen monster souls, with a very unstable power structure. Now Kali's buddies at the hotel, they’re probably still ‘dead’ for a while out of sheer annoyance, so we’ll probably see other deities either trying to take Cas down, OR, if something massive and world-ending comes along, joining forces to stop it. Or taking Cas down to replace him with a more stable power structure to save the world/universe etc. Maybe.

-Monster souls. Eve. Eggs. I’M JUST SAYIN’!! You eat the soul of every monster that died since the dawn of time and bad crap will be happening to you! Or weird crap. Or at least it should. Action leads to consequence and all that jazz!

-Also, new God, weak power structure, subject to possible attacks? Seems like the Heavenly Roadhouse might come back, with a gathering of dead Hunters brought together by Heaven-hopping Ash. Becaaaaaause... Monster souls are powering Castiel, right? And if they get loose in Heaven, well, where else is there going to be a concentrated pocket of monster hunters? The Roadhouse. So, dead Hunters versus Cas’s escaping lunch. Maybe. 10% chance.

-Dean. Is not going to find it easy to get past Castiel throwing ‘You aren’t my family’ in his face, even if Cas gets over this whole ‘I am your new God, bow down mortals’ stuff in the first half of the season, which he might, either voluntarily of by some kind of external force. At the same time as getting his offer of family rejected by Cas, he’s got Sam in mental trauma from the hell wall failure, caused by Castiel, so Dean will likely fall back, regroup, focus on Sam and any immediate fires that need put out or set, and seethe about Castiel for a while. “Family dynamic” angst forecast, moderate through the first half of the season easing as the season progresses and other issues arise, expectation of angst storms at the run up to the winter hiatus and further complications from that point on.

-In conclusion: BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CAAAAAAAAAAR!!!! D-:

Kali, monster eggs and caaaaaarrr indeed. Other than that I am hoping for epic-level angst (probably a given) and Cas having some sense and brain whumped back into him, but I shant hold my breath:P Roadhouse would be just..gah.

Holding of breath wouldn't be a good idea, no.

Mmm I know. I don't think it worked out well when I was little either. Cured the hiccups though (still does;)

Two days before the premiere, your theories sound as good as anything :)

Well okay then!

Not sure about Kali - she's striking me as one of those characters like Jesse the Antichrist. Created, interesting as all get out, but...abandoned by the side of the road. So I don't see good odds of her coming back this season.

But I would freaking LOVE to see a Heavenly version of the Roadhouse. Can you imagine who's hanging out in there?? OMG.

You saw the episode with the Roadhouse in heaven, right? Dark Side of the Moon, 5.16?

Wait, monster souls? Granted, I wasn't paying attention too much at the end of the season because I felt everything was getting stupid, but I must've completely missed the fact that Castiel was eating monster souls! I never got the impression that all the souls in purgatory were monsters, I thought there were regular people souls as well, and that Castiel simply wanted Purgatory because there were so many of them.

Sigh. I kind of want to look away from this season, but I know I'm going to be watching.

They said somewhere along the way that Purgatory was where the souls of monsters go when they die. It actually didn't seem like people went there at all, it is straight up heaven or hell for them, although the show has not been entirely clear on that and the one mention of Ken Lay making it into heaven because he was devout bothered me, because suddenly agnostics and atheists go to hell even if they have done good deeds because they don't believe in any deity?

Ah, thanks. I knew the monsters went there, but I thought they'd said people did, too. That's what I get for not paying attention! I must've mixed up my own ideas about the Purgatory myth and the show's myth.

the one mention of Ken Lay making it into heaven because he was devout bothered me, because suddenly agnostics and atheists go to hell even if they have done good deeds because they don't believe in any deity?

Another thing that slipped me by, but yeah, I'm not a huge fan of how the show is presenting religion.

It was mentioned a few times, but wasn't made a huge deal of. Really though, a lot of monsters have been humans altered in some way, so I'm not sure where the line gets drawn there.

Heavenly Roadhouse!!!!!! OMG I want this to happen soooooo badly!!!!!!! (With JDM and Samantha Smith as John and Mary: partners in badassedness.)

I'd like to see some mutual Hell trauma on behalf of Sam AND Dean. (Still don't see why Michael would turn on Sam in the cage...He and Lucifer would be far more interested in each other to bother with a human pipsqueak like Sam!)

I'd also like to see some Adam resolution. That would be nice. Because he's been down there twice as long as Sam now, and if Sam needed a wall, then Adam's gonna need the Hoover Dam. He will truly be madder than a box of frogs by now.

I hate to say it, but by now I'm pretty sure Adam has either gone demon or been soul-atomized. Not even necessarily that Big L or Mike would turn on him, just the lack of experience in dealing with the weird and being left in Lucifer's cage (which from Sam's brief memory flashes isn't fun whether he was being deliberately tormented or not) for so long, he'd have to adapt to survive or give up trying. If he ever does come back, I don't know what he might come back as.
