    I agree with the comment about Castiel, he adds a lot to the show and should play a more prominent role. It’s especially interesting when something goes wrong with him and he acts out of his ordinary angel character. I liked the one where he just became his former ordinary self and tried to go back home after having been gone for a long time. I was not a huge fan of the Leviathans. Hopefully something interesting is brewing!

    They must keep Misha Collins (Castiel) and continue to expand his role in the series to maintain my interest. Otherwise, this will be the last viewing season for me.

    Extremely Happy that 90210 is being renewed, I started watching it on netflix, really got into the show at a point that I watched all 4 season in 2 weeks! Then had to wait for the final episodes to air! This show has a lot of suspense on what’s gonna happen next! I love the show and cant wait for another season!!!
