In season 12 of "Supernatural," Castiel will help Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) bond with their mother. The brothers have a lot to adjust to, especially since their mom died when they were young. How is one supposed to handle their deceased mother coming back to life decades later? It was teased to expect the angel to help the hunters face the emotional bomb that is coming. After all, it's not like there is a support group for children with parents who have resurrected from the grave. However, they must first save Sam, who has been kidnapped.
