That would be a good way for the show to double its prophets.

Shit. I thought the episode was over 50 minutes in and turned off my recording. I was wondering what the hell you were talking about with Kevin dying

It's Gadriel, not Gadreel. You know, like Castiel, Uriel, Samadriel, Gabriel, or just about any other angelic name with a similar suffix.
I'm going with the caption, which spelled it as Gadreel.
Yup. Also, Entertainment Weekly, TV Online, and the A.V. Club spelled it "Gadreel" in their articles.

Very good midseason finale. Poor Kevin. He did end up getting screwed, but can Dean do something to resurrect him, like what he did for Charlie when she was killed by the Wicked Witch?
That was Zeke -- er, Gadreel -- who brought Charlie back, so I don't think that's going to happen. (Unless maybe Gadreel feels remorseful enough to do so later, but I doubt it.)
Right, I'm aware of that. But I wasn't being literal about what Dean did. I know he doesn't have any super abilities, but I wonder if he'll ask Castiel or maybe Crowley to bring Kevin back to life.
Ahh. *nods* Okay, gotcha.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

Could this be a case where there are two spellings? When I looked up Gadriel on Wikipeida it worked (although it took me Azreal's page), so it seems to be a recognized spelling.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

I have a feeling that the Supernatural writers created a new Angel name by varying the spelling of an old one. Maybe they didn't want it to sound like Gabriel.

Re: Supernatural Season 9 (Spoilers)

Gadriel is an established name from the Book of Enoch, someone likely just misspelled it and didn't bother to fix it. And it would still be pronounced the same anyway.

Although the show is changing what details it needs to for the story, like Castiel suddenly calling himself a Seraph for the last two years despite still only having two wings.

Well, that's sort of confusing. You're saying that the correct spelling should be Gadriel, although it's pronounced "gad-REEL." On the other hand, Gabriel has a different pronunciation, but the only difference in spelling is a single consonant. It would make sense that the show writers varied the spelling for Gadreel.

^ This is how they're labeled on the show:

Gadreel (or Gadriel) - Ezekiel poser in Sam's body is pronounced "gad-REEL."

Gabriel as in Archangel is usually pronounced "GABE-ree-uhl" or "GAB-ree-ell." How do you pronounce Gabriel? Surely, not "gub-REEL."

So they *are* pronouncing it REEL not ree-AHL? o...kay that's weird. So there is now Gadreel, Gadriel and Gabriel.

Yeah that's not confusing at all.

You know, I'm just going to keep calling him Ezekiel. I doubt the dead angel will ever be on the show or even referenced again, so it's all good.

Ree-El. The same way Gadreel is pronounced.

That's not what I heard. He was called Gadreel by Metatron, pronounced gad-REEL. There was no reference to Gabriel whatsoever, whose name wasn't even mentioned.
