The Novak family was first introduced in season 4 of Supernatural during “The Rapture” when we learned that Castiel had taken the vessel of Jimmy Novak, a deeply religious family man with a wife and daughter. Fast forward to season 10 when we saw Claire Novak, who revealed that her mother had left her in the interim. Castiel helped break her out of a home, watched her self-destruct for a while, and then sent her on her way.
But Claire will return in a late April episode of Supernatural when she gets a lead on her mother, Amelia. Castiel recruits the Winchester brothers to help Claire find her mother in the hopes that the two can be reunited. Feeling guilty for how his actions destroyed the family, Cas hopes that helping to find Amelia will serve as penance. But, as we soon learn, something took Amelia and there is a chance that Castiel and the Winchesters may not be able to get her back. Will the remaining Novaks find a happy or tragic ending?
