As Lucifer's vessel, Castiel becomes aware of God's return and helps in recruiting the angels for God's battle against the Darkness. After Amara banished Lucifer from his body in Alpha and OmegaCastiel formally meets his father face to face for the first time as Chuck.

He helped God up and worried for his well being after he had been wounded by Amara and supported his plan to defeat her and remains mostly by God's side following the battle's failure.

Castiel sat relatively close to God inside the bar the team gather in while Dean goes on a mission as a ticking time bomb. He notices belatedly when God disappears from the room after being teleported by Amara. Despite being in God's presence for most of the episode, Castiel is not shown to interact with him one-on-one.

With his meeting, Castiel is one of the seven angels the archangels, Metatron and Gadreel to see God. As shown in Bring 'em Back Aliveeven after his departure from Earth that Castiel still holds respect for God as he told Gabriel not to turn his back on his father's work.

Edit Castiel meets the angel Hannah after the angels were banished by Metatron's spell, and lured to a location by a noise. Hannah was the sole survivor of a group of angels who refused to join Metatron's side, the rest were killed by Gadreel. Hannah initially attempts to kill Castiel, but is defeated and chooses to join his side.

When Castiel decides to build his army, Hannah acts as his second-in-command. This alliance is shattered when Metatron tricks the angels into losing faith in Castiel, blaming him for the suicide bombing.

Hannah does not rejoin Castiel's side until Gadreel sacrifices himself, proving Castiel's cause to be just. Together they are able to overthrow Metatron and re-take Heaven. Hannah later assists Castiel in gathering rogue angels. Hannah shows concern for Castiel's dwindling grace, but is repeatedly brushed off.

An encounter with the husband of Hannah's vessel convinces Hannah to abandon her vessel and return to Heaven, leaving Castiel to continue the search alone, but also inspire Castiel to find his own vessel's family.

Hannah is unsupportive of this plan, but ultimately fails to stop her friend due to Bobby's assistance from the inside. Castiel meets Hannah for the last time following the rise of Amara. Hannah partakes in interrogating Castiel on Metatron's whereabouts, but soon chooses to believe that he does not know.

Enraged, Efram kills Hannah. Castiel is left deeply saddened by her death and is angered enough that he immediately avenges Hannah by killing Efram for his actions.

Edit Hester and Inias are two angels from Castiel's garrison who appeared in Reading Is Fundamentalwith the intention on getting their hands on the newly-designated prophet, Kevin Tran.

Both angels were shocked to discover that Castiel was alive, since he was thought to have died after he let loose the Leviathans some time ago. Hester, the new leader of the garrisonwas furious with Castel over the genocide of Raphael 's followers, which cost Heaven thousands of angels. After delivering a "big, scary speech", Castiel had vanished. Hester wanted an explanation, but soon realized - along with Inias - that Castiel had lost his sanity.

All three were blasted out of their location by Dean before things could escalate. Castiel managed to return to the Winchesters soon after, though after Meg killed a demon near Rufus' cabinHester and Inias were able to track them to their new location. Hester proclaimed that Castiel had fallen in every way possible, ever since the day he had rescued Dean from Hell. In a fit of rage, Hester assaulted Castiel until he bled.

Inias tried to stop her, insisting that there were few angels left, only to be knocked aside. Hester's beatings were stopped when Meg stabbed her in the back with an angel bladekilling her. Hester would not be the last angel to desire vengeance upon Castiel, and Castiel himself would come to regret every one of his sins mentioned by Hester, from his tenure as God and later on, his part in helping Metatron banish the angels from Heaven.

Inias, on the other hand, became one of the very few angels to care for Castiel, enough to want to welcome him back to the garrison, though Castiel ultimately declined.

What exactly became of Inias is unknown, though Castiel believes his entire garrison has been wiped out. Edit Ishim, like Anna, was Castiel's superior for a time. InIshim convinced Castiel along with a group of other angels that the Seraph Akobel had fathered a Nephilim. The group arrived at Lily Sunder 's house and murdered Akobel, while Ishim chose to kill the abomination himself. Although Castiel was not entirely comfortable with the task, he trusted Ishim and believed, for the following hundred years, that he and his siblings had done the right thing.

InLily sought revenge against all the angels involved in her daughter's death. Castiel was horrified to learn that Lily's daughter May had been an ordinary human and that Ishim had lied to him, leading to the deaths of many angels and putting innocent blood on Castiel's hands.

For a time after their reunion, Ishim seemed to care for Castiel still, despite the latter's involvement in the Fall of the Angels, which damaged Ishim's wings.

However, as with Lily, Ishim was possessive, demanding as well as manipulative and tried to kill Dean as he saw Dean as Castiel's weakness and ruthlessly beat Castiel and would have killed him had he not been interrupted. It would be by Castiel's own hands that Ishim met his end, something Castiel had threatened to do to his other superior Anna, but never did, although while he stated that he did not want to kill Anna unless truly forced to, Castiel showed no remorse for Ishim's death.

Aside from Ishim's position as Castiel's superior in both power and rank, it is not clear what their relationship actually was like. Ishim seemed to prefer Castiel's female vessel and inhe appeared to trust Castiel as well. The revelation of Ishim's true nature certainly damaged any positive opinion Castiel ever had of Ishim. Edit Jimmy calls Castiel out. After Castiel rescues Dean from Hell, he realizes he cannot communicate with the human unless he obtains a vessel.

Castiel tracks down Jimmy Novak, a devout Christian and family man who is able to receive Castiel's messages and communicate with him. The two manage to develop a sense of trust but Jimmy's behavior is met with ridicule by his wife. Forced to work for Castiel, Jimmy assents to possession and becomes Castiel's vessel for months. The experience is rather unpleasant for Jimmy, who feels like he's "being chained to a comet".

Castiel does not alter Jimmy's appearance, simply adding a deep voice as the only indicator that the two are not the same person. Eventually, Jimmy is freed from possession when the angels decide to drag Castiel back to Heaven for rebellious behavior. Sam and Dean discover Jimmy, who informs them that he no longer wishes to have anything to do with angels, his earlier excitement gone due to the torment he suffered, and his desire to be with his wife and daughter again.

Unfortunately, Jimmy's fate was sealed from the moment Castiel first spoke to him, as his status as an angel vessel drew demons to his familyleading to the possession of his wife and neighbors, and an attempt on his life. Jimmy demanded Castiel to rescue his family as part of their deal to gain Jimmy's consent. Castiel obeyed and took Claire as a vessel while smitting the demons holding the family captive.

Castiel was sympathetic to Jimmy's suffering and offered to spare him of the ordeal and take Claire instead, but Jimmy's love for his daughter drove him to take Castiel back, an act which ultimately cost Jimmy's life when the pair were killed by Raphael.

Ways in Which Dean and Cas said "I Love You"

God resurrected Castiel and presumably Jimmy as well since he was mentioned by the angel.

Years later, Castiel would attempt again to keep his promise to protect Jimmy's family, he tracked them down only to discover that not only had he ruined Jimmy's life, but also caused the break up of the remaining Novaks, with Amelia having gone searching for Jimmy and leaving Claire in bad company.
