Supernatural First Look: Angelic Castiel Returns… With a Demonic Special Guest!

Supernatural‘s heavenly angel Castiel is back in the March 20 episode (The CW, 9/8c), and his latest appearance in Dean and Sam’s lives coincides with an unexpected event: the return of Meg Masters (played by Rachel Miner)!

RELATED | Supernatural Scoop: Misha Collins to Return as Series Regular for Season 9

Per the official episode description, Cas tells the boys that Crowley’s let loose some demons in a small town. While interrogating one of his henchmen, the trio discovers that the King of Hell has been torturing a now-blonde Meg — is she trying to impersonate TVLine’s Meg Masters?! — and that the demon gal knows the location of a crypt that holds a valuable asset. Hmm, what could it be?

  • UGH MEG. She’s the WORST.

    • I like Meg

    • Agreed. I hate Meg and I didn’t think she could be any worse than in season 1 but it seems it doesn’t matter which actress plays her. Plus, I think she’s playing the boys with Crowley. Serious do NOT want any Megstiel moments either.

    • Really. I don’t understand why they keep bringing her back, because she is really, really annoying. The actress makes me want to turn the show off.

    • OMG I LOVE rachel miner as meg… she is great in that role. snippy and scarcastic, it is funny and puts a spark into the epsiodes.. I didnt care for the old meg but miner does a wonderful job….. she plays that part wonderfully!.. I get sick of all the women just wanting dean and cass and sam all the time.. I mean they ARE the show but come on… let us have a story line, you can enjoy other characters…and MEG is an awesome one… Death is another great character.. My godd people expand your brain

      • I love Meg, too! I particularly liked her better as portrayed by Rachel Miner as she has been at her best by being sarcastic and snippy. I am not happy that Crowley appeared to have killed her in this episode as I felt she had become a valued ally of the Winchesters and Castiel. A part of me hopes that she is not gone forever, but I fear that we have seen the last of her. That said, I am happy to see that Misha Collins will become a series regular once again next season! And with Castiel in the wind with the “angel tablet”, I can’t wait to see how Crowley and Naomi will work together to capture the tablet. And when are we going to see the Alpha vampire and Benny again this season (Remember? The Alpha vampire promised to see the Winchesters this season the last time they met in an episode last season.).

        • Im simply pissed that meg is dead and I like you hope that she really isnt dead. I dont want another actress to play meg either cause rachael miner is wonderful in that role…. I also love Benny and I like the alpha vamp as well…I dont care for the naomi storyline…….still so bummed that it looks like meg is dead…what a waste

  • Am not thrilled to see Meg again. I would far rather the episode just focused on Cas. But I am THRILLED BEYOND MEASURE to have Cas back. Love him and can’t wait for Dean to figure it all out and rescue Cas from Naomi. I hope Dean kicks some Naomi angelic ass for hurting his angel.

  • I <3 Misha!!

    • That’s I LOVE MISHA!!

  • I have to admit, I am NOT a fan of Meg. I liked her well enough as a villain, but what they did with her in season 7, trying to make her “good” (to a degree) just did not work for me. Nonetheless, I’m uber-excited to see Cas back, and this episode is written by Robbie Thompson, who has quickly become my favorite writer on the show, so this episode should be great.

    Comment by Mel – March 6, 2013 11:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah, I agree: I think Meg works better as a villain, and I hope she’ll be restored to that in this episode and maybe for season 9. She and Crowley would be a great double act. :-)

      Comment by Kate – March 6, 2013 11:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Exactly. Meg hasn’t worked for me since Rachel Miner took over the role.

      Comment by Katie – March 6, 2013 12:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Same here. The actress really irks me.

        Comment by Spencer – March 7, 2013 12:09 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yeah I’m not a big fan of Meg…especially not since Rachel Miner took over the role…And I refuse to believe that the brothers don’t just kill her at this point.

      Comment by Josh – March 6, 2013 12:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • She’s been helping them out for a long time. Why kill her unless they’re provoked? As far as they know, she hasn’t been hurting anyone. At some point, they may have to get rid of her, though.

        Comment by Carrie – March 6, 2013 07:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Looking forward to seeing Cas back, though I’m worried about what will happen between him and Dean after seeing the promo. But I hold firm to the belief the profound bond will win through in the end. :-)

    I totally think Meg is conspiring with Crowley. And I also think it would be great to have some continuity reference back to what Meg did to Sam previously if he and Meg are working this case together.

    Comment by Kate – March 6, 2013 11:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas! Finally he’s back!! I missed him so much! I even accept Meg being back, cos ugh I hate her. I hope they don’t try to make us feel for her. She is a demon and will always be one. Anyway. Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas! \o/

  • I love this season, but the lack of Cas has been disappointing :( I’m very happy he is back again and I hope we’ll see him more on season 9!

    Comment by lOR – March 6, 2013 11:43 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Fear not! Because Misha Collins has been re-promoted to series regular for the next season!

      Comment by Dreamrose – March 6, 2013 05:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • So excited for Castiel to be around again in season 8. I’m loving this season overall, but could always do with more Castiel on my tv screen. I’ve been missing him! (And so happy he’s going to be a regular for S9).

    Also I like Meg and I enjoy Rachel Miner’s performance, glad to see her back (and hopefully scheming away) and Crowley who is always a fun bad guy.

    • Maybe the blonde hair will help lol. Blonde demons seem to do a better job on Supernatural than their brunette counterparts: see Meg, Ruby.

      Comment by Ella – March 6, 2013 09:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I thought the actress who played Meg originally in the earlier seasons did a lot better job and was more convincing as a villain and creepier than the actress now. The actress who plays meg now does not give me the same vibe that the other actress did. At least we got rid of Ruby for once and for all they should never have re-casted that role to the person they did. They should bring back Bella she was a hoot too. Seriously, the best seasons/episodes were the 1st three. i am a little biased because I have been watching the show from day 1. This season has kind of been nonchalant as if they have writers now who have not watched the show from the get go. The special effects have been awesome though.

  • Meg is awesome. I’m glad she is back. I’m excited that her and Sam seem to have some scenes just the two of them. Meg is a really complex, fascinating character, and I like that the show explores her character in shades of gray. I’m also beyond thrilled that Cas is back. We’re winding up to the finale, and I’m nervous for what is going to happen. Thankfully Misha is confirmed to be a season regular again next season.

  • yay meg is back, its been too long since her last appearance. the blond suits her, she looks like she did back in her first body. and crowley too, can never get enough of mark sheppard playing bad guys.
    storyline looks interesting, hopefully cas is fully integrated into the story rather than just being squeezed into the episode to appease fans like he all too often is.

  • So excited for Cas!!! Can’t wait to have him back with the boys! We’ve missed Misha!
    Also love Meg, I think she’s great. Is it the 20th yet???

    Comment by Rita – March 6, 2013 12:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Yay! So glad Cas is back – also, LOVE Rachel Miner as Meg. And I happened to really like the demon/angel googly eyes from season 7.

    Comment by ec – March 6, 2013 12:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m happy to finally have Cas back, and Meg, too! This season has a sad lack of Castiel, and the gap between episode 10 and 17 was far too long, especially considering the way episode 10 had ended. I hope I’ll be able to enjoy the next season more, but in the meantime I’ll take any Cas episode I can get. I’m also curious as to how Dean will react to the controlled Cas and how Meg and Sam are going to interact with each other. That episode is certainly going to hurt.

  • I must be in the minority, but I think castiel has been on too long. Should have kept bobby.

    Comment by Bender – March 6, 2013 01:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • you are in the minority but you can add me to that minority, he should have stayed gone after his death at the end of season 5, that was the perfect end for the character.

      Comment by Alan – March 6, 2013 01:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Yes you are in the minority. Most of SPN fandom is wildly thrilled to have Cas back. And the over 12,000 people that got pictures taken with him at the Emerald City Comic Con this past weekend clearly agree.

        Comment by Dilys – March 6, 2013 03:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Not in the minority at all. But I don’t mind Castile with Carver in charge as Carver has strongly established the brothers are the focus of this show not Castile or any other characters and we just had 6 amazing brotherly only episodes

        Comment by Cheryl – March 6, 2013 05:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I would rather have Bobby than Cas too.

      • Add me to the minority who would rather have Bobby back than Cas

        Comment by Jane – March 7, 2013 10:40 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I don’t think we are the minority, Bender. The most vocal, fervent and downright loud are the Castile loonies for sure so everybody thinks that thats what we all want.

      Not the case, at all!!!

      Men of Letters ROCK!!!! :)

  • So glad to have cas back seven episodes with out him was too long. Im a little nervous about what Naom is doing to Cas she is more of a threat to the Winchesters then Crowley. Because she can control Cas and force him to harm the winchesters andthis is making me very concerned . Hope fully the winchesters will find out what is wrong with Cas and help him. Oh glad to see Meg back but i dont trust her.

  • Dying lameMeg’s hair blond won’t make her blondMeg and won’t make her cool. Just bring back the fun actress.

    Comment by tvwillrotyourbrain – March 6, 2013 04:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I would have been happy enough to have a new episode with Cas in it to look forward to, but also knowing that the episode is written by the incredible Robbie Thompson and also has Meg and Crowley in it just makes me that much more excited and eager for this episode! But mostly I just can’t wait to see Cas back with Dean and Sam! I’m very much hoping that with Misha being a regular for Season 9, we won’t have any more stretches of episodes without him like we have this season. Even though I’ve loved many of the episodes and adored Dean and Sam as always, I’ve missed that angel so much lately!

  • Original Meg, like original Ruby, was leaps and bounds better.

    Comment by Jason – March 6, 2013 10:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Both original Meg and original Ruby were SO much better. I know everyone loves Jared’s wife, but she and this new-Meg actress kind of ruined the characters for me.

      Comment by Anna – March 7, 2013 12:12 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Ummm, this. I prefer original Meg and also Katie Cassidy as Ruby.

        And no, I don’t love Jared’s wife. She stole my man!!!

  • Glad Castiel is back, but they can gank Meg for me. I would rather have Ellen and Jo back in place of Meg.

    Comment by TVDIVA – March 7, 2013 04:11 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I also wish they would bring Ellen and Jo back. I think Dean should be with Jo. I like her so much better than Lisa for Dean. They belong together.

  • Am I the only one here who likes Meg 2.0? I think she’s great. It was Meg 1.0 that irked me.

    Comment by Nicole – March 8, 2013 12:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • i love rachel miner as meg, she has good chemistry with the boys. i also loved nicki aycox as meg, she played her a bit more overtly villainous and i felt that was perfect for the first major recurring deamon. i really enjoy the development of the character over the years.

      Comment by Alan – March 8, 2013 12:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I Love Meg! I enjoy that there is one demon they always go back to. and We know she’s evil and that when it comes down to her semi alliances with the Boys and Cas and her hatred of Crowely its really all about protecting Meg. I enjoy that they play around with howshe does it but she’s really only loyal to Herself

  • Glad Cass is back.Let him and Meg have some FUN. Cloud seeding for Cass

    Comment by Grace – March 19, 2013 05:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I get that they are only allied with Meg due to their war with Crowley, but aren’t they forgetting Meg is on the demon side who wants Lucifer to rule. Unless she’s radically changed that view, I’d think it’d be safer to kill her off than let her live.

    Comment by James – March 20, 2013 12:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Meg stopped caring about lucifer a long time ago. Meg 2.0 is also amazing. I love her. I want her back! Bobby had to die because he couldn’t be with the boys forever—that’s why John is dead. And probably Jo and Ellen, too. It’s the boys and it will always be the boys. I think the only one who will make it in the end with them is Cas.

    Comment by Bree – March 20, 2013 07:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • meg is a great contrast with the boys…. and truly funny with cass….. she is the ultimate buffer for them all.. and shes both evil and funny and sometimes helpful.. its just such a waste to get rid of her . she can be wrote soooo many ways. None of the others can . im truly sad that she seems to be gone

      Comment by hellkitty – March 22, 2013 06:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think Meg was great! Of course I love Dean and Sam, but its nice to see the possibility of other deep relationships in the show. I hope she’s not dead.

    Comment by A – March 25, 2013 03:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Meg is rad… I love the character and the actress. .. the people that dislike have no cited reasons why and are just haters that probably watch the show for some shallow bs reasons anyhow… let’s all pray she is still alive and she and Cass get some pizza man play time… they both need and deserve it.

    Comment by nox – April 12, 2013 05:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I love Meg and Cas. Glad both of them are/were back. Both Cas and Meg bring complexity to the storyline. They have both done good and bad… a angel and demon with redeming traits and faults as well. Miner’s portrayl of Meg is wonderful! Ever since she took over I’ve loved her snarky, quick witted, attitude with the Sam and Dean. I also like how thye have hit upon an odd connection between Cas and Meg, Cas being “Sweet on her” and all. To kill her off imho removes a part of the story that took it away from the I’m bad, you’re good lets kill each other simplicity. Makes characters more real and gives the story depth. Miner needs to return for more episodes. Can’t wait to see what they do.

  • I LOVE RACHEL MINER AS MEG If they bring meg back then I want it to be rachel miner so bad and I think she played a much better meg than the first meg. I DO ship destiel but I think if they bring her back in season 9 I will feel a lot better and her and cas are the best couple on there (canon)
