i mean i know raphael’s never coming back bc the showrunners are just as racist & sexist as the fans but
i like to think that if he DID he might actually approach cass with some understanding?
imagine raphael laying low for a bit instead of making an automatic power move, esp when he realizes cass is still alive
but then actually catching up on what cass has been doing, and trying to do, and what he’s been through and WHY
like i’m sure raphael could appreciate why cass opposed him after s5, even if he would not tolerate it, but even if he didn’t then i’m sure he could and if for once an archangel might be willing to shut up and listen for a bit they could do so much together, raphael has the experience that cass doesn’t, he’s the rock
just imagine the old power and the new will, and what they could do for each other and their familyat the very least, just imagine raphael being the one to finally offer cass sanctuary
