According to the entity, its true form is horrific enough that it can drive an angel insane from viewing it. The entity is black and viscous with the ability to shift its shape to appear as it wishes. In the case of meeting [[Castiel]], it takes on the form of his vessel, [[Jimmy Novak]].
The Cosmic Entity also holds domain over the Empty, its will surpassing even God's, making it the only being able to revive [[ angels]] or [[ demons]] slumbering in the Empty. However, both [[ God]] and [[Billie]] as [[Death]] have shown the ability to resurrect deceased beings, in the latter's case because the Entity allowed it since they were working together.
Its power is so great that when it stormed [[Heaven]], the Entity easily bypassed all of Heaven's defenses, killing at least one angel in the process. It was able to blast open all of Heaven's gates, even the ones permanently closed years before by [[Metatron]], and could possess angels, essentially using them as its [[vessel]]s.
When [[Castiel]] has [[Jack]] bring him to the brink of death to visit [[the Empty]], he is greeted with "Hello, Clarence" by the Cosmic Entity taking on the form of the demon [[Meg]]. Having learned that the Entity is working with [[Billie]] and allowed her to resurrect Jack, Castiel knows that despite their differences they are on the same side. Reluctantly, the Cosmic Entity directs Castiel to [[Ruby]] so he can talk to the demon.
As Castiel prepares to leave, the Cosmic Entity explains that Billie has promised to send it back to sleep if it helps. While the Cosmic Entity can't take Castiel yet per their deal, it intends to enjoy the time they have together and begins torturing Castiel, taunting him as it does. The torture ends when Jack restores Castiel's
lifeforce, pulling him out of the Empty .
* The concept of the Empty is reminiscent of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheol Sheol], which the Hebrew Bible describes as a place of stillness and darkness, cut off from life and God, where both the righteous and the wicked go upon death. The concept of the Cosmic Entity is also reminiscent of the inhabitants of Sheol: ''[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rephaite#Long_dead_ancestors Rephaim],'' or shades, which are described as entities without personality or strength that provide healing and blessings to the lives of the living.
* [[Misha Collins]] received a question regarding his accent in this film at the 2017 Honolulu Convention. Although he claims it came from nowhere, it's evident he knows the "Mid-Atlantic" connection as he calls it an accent from an "oil rig in the Atlantic." The "Mid-Atlantic" accent's name comes from being a cross between England and New England, hence halfway through the Atlantic ocean. It is an artificial accent used in old Hollywood movies.
* In [[14.08 Byzantium]], the entity is also referred to as "the shadow" by [[Naomi]], as well as "the Empty" by Castiel during their conversation. Though the two discussed the actual Empty, Castiel specifically called the entity the Empty as well and it agreed with him. It is also called the Empty by [[Dumah]] in [[14.19 Jack in the Box]].
