#5 - Anna Milton
So what makes Anna a reluctant and unwilling hero? She was an almightly and powerful angel and gave it all up. She lost faith, got disillusioned, and decided to pursue human pleasure. Worse, she even threw her grace down to Kentucky, the one state that had no idea what to do with it other than grow a tree.
Anna fits in this category because sheâ€™s the first to realize something was rotten in Heaven and did something about it that didnâ€™t involve starting the apocalypse or becoming a Lucifer worshipper. She is a silent rebel thatâ€™s determined to fight on the side of good, despite the knowledge her â€œfatherâ€ wants her dead. Sheâ€™s trusting her instincts. Granted that involves a lot of hiding and pleading to Castiel to do better, but she did save his life (twice) and rid the Universe of a very bad demon (sort of) and a very bad angel. Plus she nails a Winchester, in the back seat of the Impala nonetheless, just for fun.
Alas, her soft spot for Castiel gets her captured, but sheâ€™s proven right when Zachariah reveals the dastardly plan. This is enough for Castiel to come to his senses, which is no easy feat. Something tells me there will be more to come from her too now that the world is ending. Castiel needs a fallen friend.
Anna:The end... Is coming. The apocalypse.
Psychologist: The apocalypse. Like in the bible?
Anna: Kind of. I mean, same bottom line. This demon, Lilith, is trying to break the 66 seals to free Lucifer from hell. Lucifer...Will bring the apocalypse. So...Smoke 'em if you got 'em.
"The Father you love, you think He wants this? You think Heâ€™d ask this of you? You think this is righteous? What youâ€™re feeling, itâ€™s called doubt. These orders are wrong and you know it. But you can do the right thing. Youâ€™re afraid, Cas. I was too. But, together we can.â€
Uriel: You havenâ€™t even met the man! There is no will. [punches Castiel] No wrath. [punches Castiel] No God.
[stabs Uriel through the neck from behind] Maybe. Maybe not. But thereâ€™s still me.
