Never fails there's always that ONE writer on a show that I adore and they can do absolutely no wrong in my eyes. On Supernatural that writer for me is the glorious BEN EDLUND. I have consistently LOVED every one of his episodes, the man does hilarious like no ones business. But it turns out he's got a flair for drama too. The Man Who Would Be King took the cake for me. It was easily my favorite episode of the entire season. It was basically a Castiel appreciation centered episode that showed all too clearly his good intentions were leading him very far down the wrong path. Superbly acted by Misha Collins as well as Jensen, Mark Sheppard, Jim and Jared. And to think the episode almost didn't even happen... Misha and Ben had to ask for it, which is insane... but I won't get into that now.
Anyway, the title and overall theme of the mix is inspired not only by the events in the episode, but also by this snippet of dialogue which is utterly heartbreaking when seen in context. Castiel being an angel just doesn't get pop culture references 99% of the time. Earlier in the episode Cas is hiding out invisible to them and overhears a conversation between the Winchesters and Bobby about Superman "going dark side". The fact he references it is Dean's first clue that Cas isn't being honest with him and them. Cas being pleased that he finally understands a pop culture reference spouts it out amused and proud of himself. It's the first time we really see Cas honest-to-goodness smile. And it's all shattered when we see the look on Dean's face. Like someone kicked his puppy or something.
CASTIEL It is a little absurd, though.
BOBBY I know, I know.
CASTIEL Superman going to the dark side. I'm still just Castiel.
DEAN I guess we can put away the Kryptonite, right?
CASTIEL Exactly. Of course, I didn't realize it at the time. But it was all over. Right then - just like that.
