With so many productions in Vancouver this year, it seems like I just don't spend much time on SPN this year, but its not true. They just simply havent been around as much where I am willing to go to.
But with the film notice I got a week earlier stating they were going to film about 200 feet from my door, I knew they would be in my area that day...and sure enough they were.
After finding the set the night before at our old Vancouver Police Department HQ & missing both the Winchesters & Castiel in different scenes, I caught them out the next day.
First up, I found Castiel (Misha Collins) looking quite un-Cas like. As some of you already know from reading a blog from another local set bloggers report, Castiel was recently seen sneaking into a Laundromat. He has shed his trademark trenchcoat (at the cleaners?) & is now adapting to being a human after last years finale which saw all the angels fall to earth.
This particular day I found Cas roaming the streets of a Michigan city Chinatown area. Two things that caught my interest in the scene.
1st - seems human Cas now notices girls. He does a double take in the scene of a busty actress who does a walk by before he continues on his walk.
The 2nd scene - one that I tweeted about & many of you loved enough to make it probably my most retweeted post ever (certainly in a long time) as 300+ retweets & 150+ Favorites in less than 48 hours, was a scene where he gives change to a woman sitting on the ground with a cup.
Even down & out and probably broke, the fallen Angel decides to give what little money he probably had to a stranger on the street. This could be an interesting plot twist to the fallen angel storyline, will they learn anything by being humans? We have seen in earlier seasons, some of the angels saw human beings as annoyances. Will they learn compasion or empathy for us now that they see what we have to endure daily?
Of course, we wont know if/when the Winchesters will cross paths with their friend, but for now, it seems Castiel is all by himself.
The day prior he did scenes that consisted of him looking in garbage (probably for food?) behind a restaurant, and hiding between two garbage cans in the rain. Looks like tough times for the man who used to get places by simply thinking about it.
I will have another set, this one of the Winchester boys doing their thing in a night scene soon.
