      What is the language they were trying to translate at the beginning of the episode? And what is the name of the class of angels Casiel was talking about? Have they referred to these classes before?

      I think this was a great episode because it dealt more with the mythology of the angels rather than just defeating the demon of the week. Does anyone know how close this follows REAL angelolgy or does the show just take liberties and make it up as they go along? In any case, I find these type episodes more scholatically interesting than just the fighting ones. In fact, I think Castiel is even more intriguing now as we see him gain humility before the inevitable return of his grace. Who would have thought that this series could have run for 9 and probably 10 seasons back when it first started!?
