我想這應該是很確定的消息，反正因為消息已經走漏太多，Supernatural 團隊現在想要躲躲藏藏應該也沒有意義，反正我們早就知道 Castiel 會回來，只是不知道會用甚麼方法回來而已。
Then he was talking about purgatory and I said “what episode were you talking about during the panel that you were filming last night?” and he said he didn’t remember the name but it was 8×08. He once again confirmed that the stills out on the net of him in his old Cas getup were not flashback but present time. I then said “so then we know you get out of purgatory, what episode did you say that happened?” and he looked at me and winked and said “I didn’t and I’m not supposed to” and I said “I know but go ahead anyhow” and he whispers to the table (like anyone else was around to hear but it was cute) “episode 7” and I said “so anything we see of you before that episode is all flashbacks to what happened to Cas in purgatory right?” and he said yes.

根據這篇內容，Misha 有透露 Castiel 在第七集就會從煉獄離開，難怪之前 Jeremy（應該是）有說，Castiel 的 fans 千萬不要錯過第七集跟第八集。換句話說，第七集以前你看到的 Castiel 都是 flashback 的影像。
另外 一個網友 dirtyovercoats 也有提供一些他所看到的消息：
Sam and Dean impersonate FBI agents to investigate a bizarre murder, and they come in on the crime scene flashing their badges and talking their way in, and in true Castiel fashion, instead Cas just walks right past without saying anything.

從 dirtyovercoats 的形容看來，Castiel 還是那個傻氣不懂人類行為的天使，居然就這樣逕自走過去一句話也沒說，一旁的 Sam 跟 Dean 應該內心三條線吧！
