Look, yes. Cas killed Billie, but he saved us. He saved Mom. How long are you gonna stay pissed?
Dean: I'm not pissed that he cares about us, you know. I'm-I'm grateful. But Billie said there would be 'cosmic consequences' if that deal got broken. You have any idea what that means?
Neither do I. But I'm pretty sure it ain't jelly beans and g-strings.
Now, Mirabel, some angels think of Castiel as a hero. After he left us, he had his own flight to command. Balthazar, Uriel. Great soldiers. Both dead now, of course. You had a hand in that, too. So is he a hero? Is he a spanner in the works? I don't know.
Castiel: I am not a hero. But sometimes doing the right thing requires sacrifices.
True, but it just always seems that it's other angels sacrificing for your good deeds. Their wings, their lives.
Dean: Okay, yeah, look. I-I get that we need super dick there. But, I mean, come on.
Castiel: The angels I served with are being killed. So I will put up with Ishim. I will put with everything else, and so will you. I have to go.
Ishim: The way you let those simians talk to you... Castiel, when did you get so gooey? You know why we're meant to stay away from them humans? It's not because we're a danger to them. They're a danger to us. Case in point.
Castiel: Well, my friendship with Sam and Dean has made me stronger.
So what's the plan?
Dean: Well, we knock on her door and ask her nicely not kill any more angels.
Sam: And if she says no?
Then we burn that bridge when we come to it.
Lily: Every time I use one of their spells, a piece of my soul burns away. And once it's gone...
Sam: You won't feel anything anymore. You won't, uh, care about anything anymore. You won't be human anymore.
Lily: I used to dream about my daughter every night. Do you know what I dream about now? Nothing. You don't trust me. I understand. But when your brother confronts Ishim, the angel will kill him. Ishim's a big man in Heaven. He's got too much to lose if the truth comes out. And when your brother's dead, you won't stand in my way anymore. You'll help me. And for that, I can wait.
Castiel: I'm sorry. I was wrong. And, while it's true I didn't know we were killing an innocent, ignorance is no excuse. I truly can't imagine the depths of your loss. This was your child. I can't imagine the pain. So if you leave here and find that you can't forgive me, I'll be waiting.
What Ishim said... You're not weak, Cas. You know that, right?
Sam: I mean, obviously you've changed, but, it's all been for the better, man.
Dean: And you have been with us every step of this long, crazy thrill ride. And no matter how crazy it got, you never backed down.
And that takes real strength.
Dean: So what are we gonna do?
Castiel: Let's drink, and hope we can find a better way.
