Crowley made his Supernatural debut in Season 5 and has been a crucial part of Supernatural since then. Although the motivation of Crowley has differed from time to time, from serving as a major antagonist to allying with the Winchesters and acting in a protagonist fashion, he has surely experienced good character transformation. Crowley became one of the important characters after the boys and Castiel, even being promoted to a regular in season 8.
So Take A Look At 5 Fascinating Facts About Crowley From Supernatural
5. MOTHER’S LOVE
We learned that Crowley’s mother is Rowena. But Rowena hates Crowley for a couple of reasons. One is that Crowley reminded her of the past when she was weak and fragile which she never wants to be reminded of again. Secondly, the father of Crowley cheated on her and left her. This prevents her from loving Crowley. But later we see that she was heartbroken over the demise of Crowley and even tried bringing him back. Even Crowley was antagonistic towards her mother Rowena, never trusting her, but however, in the end, it changed. In the episode ‘Family Feud’, Gavin reveals to Rowena that Crowley met his end by drinking ultimately. Both Rowena and Crowley met their demise in a similar fashion, by sacrificing themselves for the greater good and bidding goodbye to Sam & Dean.
4. THE DISAGREEMENT
Mark Sheppard in an interview revealed that Crowley’s demise was originally planned in the episode ‘Who We Are’, the penultimate episode of Season 12. But it eventually happened in the finale episode. Mark Sheppard was disappointed with the direction his character had taken in the season. There was nothing in store for Crowley and even his demise happened in such an uncharacteristic fashion. It didn’t even make any sense. Crowley’s sacrifice to prevent Lucifer from winning all went in vain when Lucifer managed to escape the rift and ended up harming Castiel in the final moments of the episode. In the final episode, Crowley had a line ‘I win even when I lost’ which he would say to Lucifer, but that line was eventually removed along with the extra dialogue his character had. This frustrated Mark greatly. He made it clear that he would never return to Supernatural and he eventually didn’t. Many fans wished to see Crowley again, but the actor had made up his mind to cut all ties.
3. DEMON WITH VIRTUES
While demons are not supposed to have any virtues at all. They are mean, evil, dishonest, and have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. But Crowley is an exception. He possessed certain traits such as Honesty which is evident in Season 7 Episode 8 where Crowley tells his demon that this isn’t a Wallstreet. If you made a deal then you must honor the deal. One must not find loopholes to exploit the deal. This shows he has the integrity as a king of hell. Similarly, he displayed bravery in the time of adversity, and selflessness when he sacrificed for the boys. Undoubtedly, Crowley improved the functioning of the underworld by making it more organized and efficient, maintaining order.
2. THE NAME
Crowley is a name that he has taken after he became the demon. But his human name was Fergus, he was digusted with the name, and felt annoyed whenever Rowena uses that name to address him. Also, the name Crowley is after the famous Occultist named Aleister Crowley. This Irish name means one who is the descendant of a hardy warrior. Crowley has assigned some pretty amazing nicknames to various characters on the show. Due to the tall height of Sam Winchester, Crowley often refers to him as Giraffe or Moose whereas his name for Dean includes Squirrel. This is also a reference to the popular animated series Rocky and Bullwinkle which featured a moose and squirrel as lead characters.
1. ONE OF A KIND
Crowley is also the second character after Bela Talbot who after meeting his demise didn’t make any appearances on the show. Both the characters of Ruby and Meg have appeared in some capacity. What separates Crowley from all the other demons is not only does he have virtues, but his demonic cloud color is red which is one of a kind. Even his eyes can be seen as red. Although no explanation has been provided why that’s the case, it could be because he is the king of the crossroads. Despite fighting against Lucifer, he displayed respect for Lucifer, not underestimating him. Crowley is a powerful demon, but at times he had genuine concern for others such as he warned Kevin to stay away from the Winchesters which eventually became the reason for his demise. Similarly, when Castiel was unable to fight the angels and was at his end, Crowley saved him and provided Castiel with grace so that he could save Sam from the demon Dean.
