...flat on his back in Autistic Heaven, hacking up blood from some unspecified internal injury. "ZZZZZZ -- gooooooooooooore! -- ZZZZZZZ!" Flashback Raphael looms above him and vows to kill Flashback Castiel and all of his merry little Flashback Friends if they don't sign on to Flashback Raphael's plan.
Back in Ellsworth's Emporium, Castiel listens in as Our Intrepid Heroes plus Bobby consider their options and, over Bobby and Sam's objections, Dean determines they need to call My Sweet Baboo in for a consult. "But I didn't go to them," Castiel's Voiceover explains as we watch him watching them summon him, "because I knew they would have questions I couldn't answer, and because I was afraid." The boys plus Bobby are about to leave when...they're suddenly beset by several of Crowley's minions! DUN! "ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!" That is also true, Raoul. Dean gets some of the pretty smacked clean off his face, Sam gets thrown into the furniture, and Bobby gets flung through a set of glass doors. "Crowley says hi!" the primary minion sneers, and with that, he punches Dean directly into the METAL TEETH CHOMP!
Ellsworth's Emporium. Immediate aftermath. The primary minion continues beating on Dean until My Sweet Baboo takes it upon himself to intervene, and Castiel materializes to sear the minions' brains out with his magical hands. And when the last minion lies dead, the boys plus Bobby pick themselves up off the floor to thank Castiel for the unexpected assist. "Well, Bobby," Dean smirks, "what do you think about Castiel saving our asses again?" "I think we owe you an apology," Bobby allows. "Why?" My Sweet Baboo wonders, all wide-eyed and such, for he is adorably playing dumb. "We've been hunting Crowley this whole time," Sam admits, "and keeping it from you." "We thought you were working with him," Bobby confesses, but he hastens to add, "We were wrong." "We just hope you can forgive us," Dean finishes for the three of them, and Castiel's Voiceover kicks in to marvel, "Wonders never cease! They trusted me again, but it was just another lie." "It's forgotten," Castiel assures Bobby and the boys, and then My Boneheaded Baboo fucks himself over, but good. "It is a little absurd, though," he smiles, making the mistake of teasing them over their suspicions. "Superman going to the dark side?" he grins. D'OH! Bobby and Sam keep those slap-happy smiles of theirs firmly affixed to their faces, but Dean's entire expression just falls, and he murmurs, "I guess we can put away the Kryptonite, right?" "I didn't realize it at the time," Castiel's Voiceover interrupts, "but it was all over, right then, just like that." And as if to prove Castiel's Voiceover right, the instant My Bumbling Baboo turns away from him, Dean scowls. DUN!
