Supernatural Season 9 saw Human!Cass, one of the best forms of the character. He’s going to be extremely important for Supernatural Season 14.

Let me start this by saying that Castiel is definitely not human in Supernatural Season 14. I know my thought process can seem odd at first. This isn’t about Castiel being human now but about the lessons he learned as Human!Cass and how they can help now.

Jack is going through the transformation Castiel once went through. Once full of power and abilities to help save people, Jack is now powerful and will feel a bit like a loose end. We’ve already looked at how he’ll have to go back to the hunter basics, but there’s more to this storyline.

This is going to be a chance for Jack and Castiel to bond further. After all, Cass has been through everything Jack is going through right now. He’s lost his grace, found himself needing everything human, and found a certain dignity in the life. Once homeless, he was able to get a job and found some sort of purpose.

Granted, Human!Cass eventually went on to help the other fallen angels, but there was something special about his time living the human life. And his decision to then help the angels was an honorable one. These are all lessons that Jack can learn from.

Jack will feel helpless at first in Supernatural Season 14, but Castiel can use his experiences to show that all is not lost. And this is where Human!Cass is so important. Had Cass not been through that, he wouldn’t be the perfect person to help Jack right now.

I really hope the writers think about this; that they think about the lessons Castiel learned while human. My hope is the writers are able to pull some of Castiel’s experiences out and allow Jack to live through them, but also show how he can live and figure things out slightly differently. After all, we may all go through the same basic things but how we react and act are often completely different.
