Before we get to the episode itself, have a snippet of a conversation I want to see happen on the show:
Dean flips through the contents of his cellphone, his shiniest new toy. Cas, sitting next to him in the diner booth, shifts suddenly and says, "Dean, you write my name incorrectly."
Dean, without turning, replies, "What?"
"My name," Castiel continues. "You have my cellular phone number saved under the name 'Cass,' with double S. That is incorrect."
At this, Dean turns his head to look at Cas. "Come again?"
Castiel, face blank and voice patient as if talking to a child, says, "My name is Castiel. There are no doubled letters, Dean. You should change it."
Dean opens and closes his mouth, at loss for words, before turning back to his phone. "No."
Dean sighs, fighting the urge to roll his eyes or maybe slap Cas upside the head. "Look, buddy - I gave you that nickname, I get to decide how to write it. Capiche?"
"But - " Cas starts before Dean cuts him off.
"No buts, Cas."
* Cas = the fandom; Dean = the writers.
Anyway, as for the episode - usual warnings still apply (spoilers, speculation... Shipping...)
