This Week's Motel Room. Immediate aftermath. Our Intrepid Heroes stare down at Castiel staring down at the ruins of Sam's Charger until My Sweet Baboo flutters back up into the room behind them. The three immediately start nattering at each other, with Sam and Dean hurling question after question in Castiel's direction while the angel putters about the room, rummaging through duffel bags for supplies. We learn through all of this that the now-vanished dark-suited Heavenly traitor is working for The Archangel Raphael, who returned Up There at some point after the abortive Apocalypse to wrest control of the place now that Michael's locked away in Hell and God is still missing. Raphael's ultimate goal is to restart The Apocalypse by any means necessary -- presumably because he's some sort of traditionalist, or something like that -- and he's managed to assemble a not insignificant force of like-minded angels in order to destroy the planet and whatnot. Most of the other, non-Apocalyptic angels have rallied around My Sweet Baboo in opposition to Raphael, and now Heaven stands at the brink of a civil war, with numerous rogue angels, as mentioned before, choosing to sit it all out this time around by fluttering earthwards with a number of God's most powerful secret weapons. Got all that? "I do not!" Doesn't matter, because I'm sure we'll be reminded of it many, many times throughout the course of the season. "Okay!"
