Sadly, despite reading countless thousands millions? The secretarial angel got to play the hero at just the right moment, grabbing Kevin from Crowley's clutches, but Kevin handled himself pretty well this episode without any assistance. Not only was he wise to Crowley's scheme with his too-nice demons, he managed to lure them into a devil's trap, send a failsafe email to the Winchesters and grab the bottom half of the tablet to decipher the third trial even as Crowley was beating on him.
You go, Kevin Tran! It was a tough week for Sam, between a fever, blurry vision and a pesky case of resonating, but that did mean that we got to hear the phrase "farty donkey," so it all seemed worthwhile. Ignoring the continuity error that Dean has supposedly never been to the Grand Canyonthe idea that the trials might be "purifying" Sam's demonic blood is kind of beautiful, especially since that aspect of him has been a constant source of guilt and insecurity.
That scene in particular was beautifully played by Padalecki and Ackles. Despite apparent fan concern that Dean isn't being given enough to do something that was true in the decidedly mediocre "Taxi Driver" but was not the case here, in my view I still don't feel that Sam being the active participant in the trials means that Dean is doing nothing but "caretaking.
He had the pivotal "closing the gates of hell" conversation with Metatron and got the very ominous warning that "that's what this has all been about, the choices your kind make. You're going to have to weigh that choice. What is it going to take to do this, and what will the world be like after it's done?
Dean then asks him what he needed to tell him, but Castiel coldly replies his loyalty is to Heaven, not to mankind or to him. When Anna confronts him about his actions, other angels appear and capture her. With Sam closing in on Lilith, Castiel and Zachariah imprison Dean within an idyllic waiting room, where he will be made comfortable until the time comes for him to play his role in stopping the Apocalypse.
Dean refuses to remain idle, and continually requests to be able to see Sam, which is denied. Once Dean discovers the angels are allowing the Apocalypse to happen, he implores for Castiel to help him stop the final seal from being broken.
Though Castiel refuses at first, he returns ready to help not long after. He takes Dean to see the prophet Chuck for information on Sam. Their presence does not fall in line with Chuck's Gospel, so the Archangel Raphael begins to descend.
Castiel sends Dean to Sam, remaining behind to hold back the archangel and any others who might come. He is uncertain as to how he was resurrected, but alludes to Zachariah it may have been God's doing. After ordering Zachariah away, Castiel carves Enochian sigils into Sam and Dean's ribs to hide them from all angels, including Lucifer. He borrows Dean's amulet, as it burns hot in God's presence, and departs. He has also been completely cut off from Heaven as a result of his rebellion and has lost some of his powers as a result, including his ability to heal injuries.
In "Abandon All Hope However, he ventures off after discovering hundreds of Reapers are already in the town, hoping to discover what has called them there. He soon becomes imprisoned by Lucifer, who tries to tempt Castiel into joining him, pointing out they are both targets of Heaven, but Castiel refuses. He later manages to free himself, but finds he no longer has the power to kill demons.
After Sam and Dean fail in their attempt to kill the Devil, Castiel teleports them to safety. He tasks them with finding the angel Joshua, who communicates directly with God. Although Joshua reveals God is alive, he claims He is apathetic to the Apocalypse; having saved the brothers and Castiel, God feels He has done enough. When relayed to Castiel, his hopes and faith are shattered,  leading him to drink heavily in the subsequent episode "99 Problems" when Sam summons him for answers about the actions of the people in a town.
Castiel reveals that they are dealing with the Whore of Babylon and provides the stake that can kill her, but as he is no longer a true servant of Heaven, is unable to do it himself.
Inside Man - Super-wiki
He gets Pastor Gideon so they can have him do it and tries to hold the Whore in place so the Pastor can stab her. However, she casts a spell that causes him great pain and knocks him out of the fight. In the end, Dean stabs her with the stake, identifying himself as a true servant of heaven.
He leaves after hearing a signal from the angels, and finds a resurrected Adam Milligan — Sam and Dean's half-brother who had been previously killed by ghouls. When Dean escapes and tries to contact the angels, Castiel finds him, and angrily attacks him for making Castiel's rebelling against Heaven worthless.
Later, he carves a banishing sigil into his own chest and activates it in the presence of multiple angels in order to clear the way for Sam and Dean to attack Zachariah and save Adam. The effects of the sigil send him onto a fishing boat, now completely human.Metatron Talks About Stories - Supernatural Season 8, Episode 21
Despite his lack of power, he is able to defeat the Horseman Pestilence using what appears to be what little is left of his angelic strength, and assists Bobby and Sam in preventing nationwide distribution of the Croatoan virus. Angry that Castiel attacked his brother, Lucifer obliterates Castiel with a snap of his fingers. After Sam and Dean avert the Apocalypse, Castiel is resurrected once more by God, now more powerful than ever as a seraphim.
He heals Dean's injuries and resurrects Bobby and reminds Dean that he got what he wanted: Castiel then heads back to Heaven to restore order and become its new leader, believing it to be in chaos as Sam trapped Michael in Lucifer's Cage as well. Post-Apocalyptic alliances A year after the Apocalypse, Castiel returns to Earth in "The Third Man" to get Sam and Dean's help to find the Staff of Moseswhich, along with many other weapons of Heaven, has been stolen during the war.
They soon discover that the angel Balthazar has stolen it and sold pieces of it to people in exchange for their souls. They confront Balthazar, but are interrupted by Raphael.
Before Raphael is able to get his revenge against Castiel, Balthazar destroys Raphael's vessel and sends him back to Heaven. After trapping Balthazar within a ring of ignited holy oil and forcing him to restore the souls he has taken, Castiel sets him free, claiming his debt has been paid off.
Sam, still dizzy and unsure of what is going on after being knocked unconscious by Dean, reveals that he no longer sleeps and has become a better hunter. Castiel has an idea of what's wrong and decides to read Sam's soul by reaching inside him, and the truth is finally revealed: Both Dean and Castiel are unsure whether Sam is still Sam without his soul, but they let Sam go and Castiel heals his wounds from being beaten by Dean. When he comes, Sam threatens Castiel saying that if he does not help, then he will hunt him down and kill him.
Despite knowing Sam never could, he helps them. Later, while Sam and Dean are doing research, Castiel discovers porn on TV; when Dean asks why he was watching porn, he replies, "It was there. When Crowley admits that he cannot get Sam's soul back, Castiel burns Crowley's human remains. At the end of the episode Castiel explains to Sam and Dean that the celestial war is not going well for him and he would rather be on Earth with them, but leaves anyway to continue fighting, but promises to take care of Crowley's captured monsters first.
After acquiring the holy weapons from Balthazar in "The French Mistake",  Castiel suggests that he now has a military advantage in the war.
Unfortunately, this advantage seems limited; he orders Balthazar in "My Heart Will Go On"  to save the Titanicspawning 50, new souls to empower his side. However, Fate works to undo the impossible births and begins killing them.
Once the brothers encounter the string of odd deaths Fate takes this opportunity to eliminate them due to their part of undoing the destined Apocalypse. This forces Castiel to concede the loss and re-sink the Titanic. In "Frontierland", Sam and Dean call for Castiel to send them back in time as they have learned that the ashes of a Phoenix can kill Eve and that Samuel Colt killed one in the past with The Colt.
Rachel, Castiel's lieutenant comes instead and berates the boys for only calling for him when they need something of him, but Castiel arrives himself and sends Rachel away.
Castiel is able to send Dean and Sam back in time, but warns them that he has to retrieve them in 24 hours or they'll be stuck in the past forever and tells Bobby to pray for him when the time comes. While waiting, Rachel approaches him about his plans and attacks him.
Castiel kills her, but is left weakened by a stab wound she managed to inflict on him first. Castiel manages to teleport to Bobby's and draws a sigil to hide himself from the other angels before passing out. He wakes in time to retrieve the Winchesters, but his weakened state prevents this so he is forced to draw power from Bobby's soul. While Dean killed the Phoenix, Castiel brought them back before they could gather the ashes so it all appears for nothing and he lacks the power to send them back.
Luckily, Samuel Colt collected the ashes and sent a package with them to be delivered to Bobby's after the boys return.
In "Mommy Dearest", it is discovered that there is a possibility Crowley may have faked his death and might still be alive; suggesting that perhaps Castiel had burned the wrong bones by mistake.
Eve reveals this to Sam and Dean when they try to hunt her down. During the hunt, Eve is able to suppress Castiel's powers as she is older than him. After Dean kills Eve, Castiel's powers return and he kills all of her monsters with a blast of white light before transporting the group to the home of the uncle of two young boys who were turned into monsters. There, they find them dead, having been killed by demons, and Castiel promises to look into Crowley's possible survival to find out for sure if he's dead or not.
In "The Man Who Would Be King", it is revealed that Castiel was the one who partially raised Sam from Hell, though due to the complication of the cage it was impossible to retrieve his soul, and that he has made a deal with Crowley in a desperate attempt to win the war.
Sam and Dean also learn of his partnership with Crowley when he slips up and reveals he is spying on them. In "Let it Bleed", Castiel is enraged to learn that Lisa and Ben Braeden have been kidnapped by Crowley and tries to get him to reveal where they are to no avail.
Castiel saves Dean from a demon and tries and fails to convince him to back off. Later, after Lisa is mortally wounded by a demon possessing her in an attempt to force Dean not to exorcise her, Castiel arrives at the hospital and without being asked, heals her wounds and at Dean's request, erases all of her and her son Ben's memories of Dean.
He does this as a final act of friendship towards Dean though both admit it doesn't change the fact that they are now enemies. Castiel also spends the episode one step ahead of Bobby investigating H. Lovecraft's opening of Purgatory in an attempt to find a way to open it himself. He demonstrates his new power by killing Raphael with a simple snap of his fingers.
While talking to Dean, who unsuccessfully begs him to give up the power, Sam sneaks up behind them and attempts to kill him with an angelic blade by stabbing Castiel in the back, but it has no effect. Castiel removes the blade, explains that he is no longer an angel, declaring himself their new God.
He then glances at the three hunters before delivering an ultimatum: In "Meet the New Boss", Castiel begins exacting his new supremacy over the planet, working miracles and punishing religious hypocrites alike.
However, when Castiel's vessel begins to become damaged and he begins to lose control of his power, Death reveals that he also absorbed creatures known as Leviathans from Purgatory. The Leviathans will destroy him if they are not released. Castiel seeks out the Winchesters' help, and reopens the portal with Death's assistance. Although the souls are returned, the Leviathans evade reentering Purgatory and take control of Castiel's vessel. In "Hello, Cruel World", the vessel begins to quickly break down.
The Leviathans are forced to leave, dispersing into the local water supply nearby and leaving behind only Castiel's trench coat. After the Leviathans left him, he made his way out of the river, naked, and ran into his future wife Daphne. However, the experience renders Castiel amnesic, but with his angelic powers intact.
Going by the name "Emanuel", Castiel used his powers to heal people, though he didn't know where that ability and his power to see demon's true faces came from. After Sam is committed to a mental hospital as a result of the hallucinations of Lucifer he is suffering due to Castiel breaking his "mental wall", Dean searches for "Emanuel" and kills a demon that is holding his wife hostage.
Castiel agrees to help Dean who doesn't tell him who he really is, but mentions what "Cas" had done to Sam. The two are joined by Meg, but upon reaching the hospital, find demons surrounding the entrance. As Castiel is the only one who can take them all down, Dean is forced to tell him the truth about who he really is and insists he has the power to kill the demons. Castiel manages to summon his power to kill demons and kills all of them, but doing so restores his memories.
Castiel shows remorse for his previous actions and initially wants to leave, but Dean is able to convince him to help by giving him back his trench coat.
Castiel finds Sam in time to save him from a demon torturing him to death with electro-shock therapy and tries to restore his mental wall, but can't as it's completely gone. Feeling sorry for what he had done, Castiel transfers the problem to himself and is haunted by visions of Lucifer like Sam was.
Castiel is committed to the mental hospital, but is safe from the demons as only Meg knows he's alive and she takes a job at the hospital, presumably to look after him.
In "Reading is Fundamental", Castiel is awakened when the Word of God — a tablet with information inscribed by an angel as dictated by God — is found by Sam and Dean. He played on Gadreel's guilt of his own crimes and convinced him that he would be safe; the angel agreed to join Metatron, but Metatron revealed that Gadreel first had to prove his loyalty and forced him to murder Kevin as well as steal the angel and demon tablets from the Winchesters.
Later, in "Road Trip", Metatron sends Gadreel after Thaddeus, another angel who happened to be Gadreel's old jailer and torturer. Gadreel killed Thaddeus and returned to Metatron, handing over the tablets he had stolen and telling Metatron that Kevin was dead. Metatron reveals he had fixed it upstairs so there would be no more Prophets, but reprehends Gadreel on learning that he had left Dean alive.
As another test of loyalty, he sent Gadreel to kill one more angel, not telling him the angel in question was Abner, his best friend.
Later, Metatron waits for Gadreel to arrive, only for Gadreel to arrive after being expelled from Sam's body by Sam himself and possess his original vessel, the bartender. An angel appears and attempts to out Metatron for being a fraud, but the followers defend him and ambush the angel, one of them killing him with the angel blade that Metatron kicked over. Dean confronts Metatron and attempts to fight him, but Dean is easily overpowered due to Metatron's strength from the angel tablet.
Metatron fatally stabs Dean in the chest with the angel blade as Sam looks on. Back in Heaven, Metatron finds Castiel sitting in his office and handcuffs him to the chair and Metatron brags about killing Dean and how the angels are just "sheep" who will follow Metatron wherever he leads them no matter what he's done to bring them under him.
Castiel is revealed to have broadcasted their conversation over the "angel radio", effectively turning all of the angels against him and as the season ends, he is imprisoned in Heaven by Castiel. Hannah is shocked, but Metatron mocks her, asking her what else he would ask for.
He then promises that he doesn't care about the Earth any more, he'll leave, he'll find somewhere else in another galaxy and never bother them again. Hannah is tempted, but she is interupted by Castiel himself, angry for her listening to him, he denouces Metatron a liar and warns her that listening to him will end badly.
Turning to Castiel, Metatron admits he was right and he is a liar, but he wasn't lying about the Grace.

He tells them that they need the First Blade. Afterwards, he refuses to cooperate and continues to tuant him. Dean, under the mark's influence, tortures him and comes close to killing him.
10.17 Inside Man
He was stopped by Sam and Castiel. Castiel takes Metatron back to Heaven, with Metatron threatening that he would rather die the next time they ask for his help. It is later revealed that he lied about how to remove the mark, but he knew where Cas' grace was.
Castiel later removes Metatron's grace and has Sam shoot him in order for him to help them. The angel then takes Metatron prisoner and has him locate his grace. Castiel and Metatron continue their road trip to retrieve Castiel's grace. Metatron starts to enjoy his new humanity, but annoys Castiel with his antics, resulting in Castiel punching Metatron.
Eventually they stop for food which Metatron enjoys but turns out to be lactose intolerant and makes a mess. However, this doesn't endear him to Castiel as he'd hoped. Reaching a library, Metatron reveals that it is where the grace is hidden as no one visits a library anymore. While Castiel is able to sense that his grace is actually there, he can't sense its location and Metatron reveals he doesn't know it either.
Under threat, Metatron explains that he had another angel hide the grace, even from him so he couldn't give up its location under torture. However, he had the angel hide clues in the books and he and Castiel search finding the first clue: Metatron reveals that the clues are actually book titles and that he's there to retrieve Castiel's grace as well as the demon tablet which is hidden there also.
Metatron retrieves the demon tablet, but finds that Castiel has gotten to his grace first so he flees with just the tablet. Castiel also lies to Dean about how he got his grace back, saying that Hannah got it out of Metatron and not telling him about Metatron's escape despite the threat it poses. Season 11 In "Our Little World", while watching a news clip of a violent crime, Castiel spots that the videographer is Metatron from his reflection in a car's mirror.
