Most of what happens in “Supernatural” is pretty depressing. No one can seem to get a break, and often times tragedies and deaths are used as sensationalized replacements for great storytelling. But I still smile, and heck even draw a little faith from the conversation between Castiel and a praying woman in the church in “I’m No Angel.” Castiel tried to tell her the truth, there is no God, but she wouldn’t have it.
Castiel: What if you were to find out that no one is listening? That God had pretty much left, that Heaven had gone out of business? What would you do?
Woman in Church: But that’s not possible.
Castiel: I think it’s completely possible.
Woman in Church: You’re missing the point. It’s not possible because I have my faith.
Castiel: But when I tell you the truth-
Woman in Church: Your truth, not mine. Your lack of faith doesn’t cancel what I believe. That’s not how it works. You know… I think you might feel better if you tried it my way. Someone is listening.
I wish the show had more optimistic scenes like this.
Lord knows the rest of the episode (or season) didn’t do anything to strengthen the powerful sentiment of this scene at all.
