* Near the end of season four of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', Castiel visits Dean's dream and makes an appointment to meet him in a secluded place, saying he has something he needs to tell him and even Dean's dream isn't completely safe because someone could be watching. Naturally, somebody was watching, and when Sam and Dean show up at the meeting they find Castiel [[spoiler: gone, leaving only his clueless vessel Jimmy Novak, who has no idea what Cas wanted to tell them. And by the time Cas comes back (from Heaven), he's been [[ColdBloodedTorture persuaded]] to leave it alone.]]
