"Dean?" Sam has been staring at his brother during this time, waiting for him to say something. "Are you all right?" Dean shakes off the flashback. He sits down with Sam and whispers, "You do see something severely wrong here, right?" He talks about remembering every bit of awfulness involved in his escape. He taps the side of his head with his finer. "I have that whole ugly mess right here and he says he has no idea how he got out? I'm just not buying it." From the bathroom comes the sound of water running. Dean lowers his voice further. "I saw the shape that he was in. I mean, there was no way he was fighting his ass out alone." Sam wonders who else -- or what else -- could have gotten him out. Before they can ponder this further, Castiel walks out of the bathroom. He has not only cleaned himself up but ditched the awful beard, traded in his hospital jammies for his trademark blue suit, styled his hair and magically dry-cleaned his coat. "Better?" he asks, obviously quite pleased with himself. Sam and Dean try to strike a balance between "impressed" and "kind of really scared" and mostly succeed. Does this mean there won't be hugs?
Back at the diner, Mama Tran and Delta are arguing about their transaction. Mama Tran tries to play tough, but Delta's kind of holding all the cards. When she demands more money, Mama Tran tells Kevin to fetch her purse. He goes into the storeroom and sees that the salt line in front of one window has been broken. Instead of, say, rearranging the ample salt to re-solidify the line, he scampers back into the dining area. By then, Crowley and a minion have already arrived. "Hello, Delta," he says. She waves back. "Hiya!" Mama Tran is just shocked that a witch she hired off the internet would betray them. Delta is rather proud of herself for having made a deal with the King of Hell. He repays her by snapping his fingers and making her vanish. Crowley absconds with Kevin, after leaving instructions with the minion to kill Mama Tran. Mama Tran has other ideas though, and sprays the minion with a squirt gun of holy water. He screams in agony. Demons have a shockingly low threshold for pain.
Castiel catches up on some TV viewing, while Sam checks online for any new abductions. As far as he can tell, they've stopped. "So how many we got? Seven?" Dean asks. Sam goes down a list of the names: "Luigi, Justin, Aaron..." To his and Dean's surprise, Castiel, without looking up from the TV, Castiel finishes the list: "... Maria, Dennis, Krista, Sven." When the brothers are befuddled, Castiel explains they're all prophets. Angels, he says, instinctively know all the names of the prophets past, present and future. Only one can exist at a time though, so as long as Kevin Tran is alive, all these other people are future prophets. Chuck, apparently, is dead or gone or... whatever. Castiel isn't sure what exactly happened to him. Somehow, "low level" demons abducting future prophets causes strange weather phenomena. They figure Crowley has gathered them all up because who else would be collecting prophets? Mama Tran calls Sam just then to let him know Crowley also has Kevin.
