What did you think of the premiere? ‘Supernatural’ Season 7 Premiere Review & Discussion
With less than a month before Supernatural season 7 premieres, it’s time to take a look at what’s in store for Sam and Dean – now that Castiel has taken over heaven. Forget hell; it’s the wrath of Castiel that everyone must now fear.
In the Supernatural season 6 finale, fans not only bore witness to Castiel (Misha Collins) becoming the new god, but they also felt his vengeful wrath as Castiel had smitten the ever opposing Raphael with but a snap of his fingers. From the looks of it, such smiting shall continue.
In the Supernatural season 7 teaser trailer (see below), Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are given simple instructions from heaven’s new authority: “Be thankful for my mercy. If you rise up, I will strike you down.” Of course, when has that ever stopped Sam and Dean?
You can see the teaser trailer below:
Contained within are quick glimpses of what’s to come in the upcoming season. In it, fans are able to see what lengths the Winchester brothers are willing to go to in order stop their once angelic friend from wreaking havoc on Earth. With passing shots of Death (Julian Richings) and Crowley (Mark Sheppard) returning, it quickly becomes apparent that it’s going to take more than just two boys from Kansas to bring down this heavenly father.

Interestingly enough, there also appears to be some glimpses of Castiel being hit with a bright light – and then shown with a look of disorientation. Could these be the scenes where Castiel is finally knocked from his thrown in heaven?
It’s been known awhile that Misha Collins will not be a series regular for the upcoming season. With a simple guest starring role slated for Supernatural season 7, the number of episodes that Collins will be appearing in will be few (think 8 or fewer). From the Supernatural panel at Comic-Con 2011, we know that Jo, Crowley, Sheriff Jodie Mills, and Death will be returning this season.
Apart from that, one can only speculate whether or not Castiel’s story-arc of god will be extended throughout the entirety of the season or simply wrapped up in the first half. Whatever the decision may be, it appears that Supernatural season 7 will be as entertaining as ever.
Supernatural season 7 premieres September 23 on The CW
