I find him fascinating, Gadreel. I mean the whole dubcon possession of Sam kind of squicked me out, but he’s a really interesting character—he claims he let the serpent into the garden because he loved humanity and he’s doing all of these ‘villainous’ acts (killing Abner, slaughtering angels, doing Metatron’s bidding) for redemption.
I’m not sure if he’s a parallel for Cas, but he does sound like one.
