I saw another post go by taking for granted that this image means that Castiel has been injured in the eye or had something inserted in his brain/eye/behind his eye, but it’s Sunday morning and I was thinking about my father being at Church while I’m home sick, my friend who has recently converted to Catholicism, and a bit of Christian lore suddenly stood out to me…

What if Cas is simply crying?  

We’ve seen him sob, but never actually cry to the point of producing tears before.  In old Christian mythos, tears of blood are associated with holiness.  They’re seen from statues of the Blessed Virgin as miracles, several Saints were said to produce them when touched by the Holy Spirit, and Jesus sweats blood in the Garden of Gethsemane.  It would be entirely apt for an angel to also manifest blood tears.  What if it’s not an injury at all, but simply that having to confess to the Winchesters that he again betrayed them, even if against his will, is enough to move this millions of years old soldier to tears?
