Spoiler alert: This story contains details about Season 15, Episode 18 of “Supernatural.”

“Supernatural” star Misha Collins is reacting to the latest episode of the show, which sent viewers to Twitter Thursday night with their own thoughts about the latest developments.

In the Season 15 episode, titled “Despair,” fans definitely weren’t led astray by the name, having to witness Castiel (played by Collins) sacrifice himself after declaring his love for Dean (Jensen Ackles). 

Collins took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the heartbreaking moment.

“#Supernatural Tonight, watching Cas talk to Dean, I got lost in the story and forgot for a moment that I’m the one who plays that angel and I thought, ‘He’s how I want to be. He’s openhearted and he’s selfless and he’s true'” Collins tweeted.

Fans were also quick to chime in with their reactions on the social media site.

“Cas’ goodbye speech I’m literally sobbing,” user @xSimply_Mishax tweeted.

“Cas first moment on earth was with dean and his final moment was also with dean I CAN’TT” user @asmahayat19 wrote with crying emojis. 

“dean sobbing in the end is what completely broke me,” user @gloomycelestial said. 

“IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER 🖤” user @truepowerrrrr tweeted with photos of Cas. 

Some appeared more upset than sad.

“I will NOT accept this. supernatural can’t just do this. they can’t just make destiel canon and then just kill Cas. they can’t do that. this is not okay. I am not okay. I am not going to be okay for a very long time,” user @enbychild83 said. 

Others pointed out that the show and the characters ship name “destiel” was trending amid the presidential election coverage.

“destiel being at the top with all the election (expletive) going on is honestly hilarious,” user @luluradcliffe_ tweeted.
