This explains a lot. I was expecting a filler episode not THE big Reveal of the season.
I love what dean did to the sword and now both brothers have one/shiv. I think the dragons will be more important.
This explains everything.
At first I thought Raphael would be the big bad then Crowely and the Alphas were either preping themselves to march up to hell or protect themselves from Raph.
The entire Angel civil war is to keep Cas busy to keep Cas from helping fully.
Crowley's search for purgatory was to stop this and keep himself topdog.
The Alpha's are building up their people for this and keep the hunters busy but only the dragons are in charge of waking her.
Now its clear.
With the hell and heaven in chaos with the angel civil war and Lucifer loyalist and Crowley folk going at it its time to stake a claim at Earth.
So this is female Lucy?
I thought Lilith was mother of the monsters/freaks; but maybe Lucifer and Mom made Lilith together and Lucy put mom down in purgatory.
Meg and Balthazar will come in soon.
