Battle Hymn of the Hardy Boys

Nuthouse. Aftermath. Our Intrepid Heroes finish bringing Addled Kevin up to speed on angels and Leviathans and such, after which Dean inquires as to the message contained on the Metatron stone. Addled Kevin babbles that the inscription seems to translate into "an in-case-of-emergency note," then blurts, "What did they mean by 'Prophet'?" "Oh, no," Dean sighs. "Really?" "That's what the angel said," Sam shrugs. Chat about the overall undesirability of that particular job title ensues until Meg rather impatiently reminds them that they're on the angels' radar now, and could they possibly go hide someplace safe, maybe? Dean decides they'll all hole up in Dead Rufus's ridiculously scenic rustic homestead deep within the lush coastal rainforests of Montana's Rocky Mountains until this angel-related unpleasantness blows over, and with that, Our Intrepid Heroes plus Meg plus Addled Kevin plus The Metatron Stone take to...

...this week's crapped-out piece of automotive trash, which speeds off into the rain-streaked night until it reaches...

..."Al's Mini-Mart," somewhere appropriately remote. Various mini-mart-related activities quite naturally ensue, but these are the two that matter: Darling Sammy catches a news item regarding Addled Kevin's disappearance on the store's flat-screen TV, and Meg spots a pair of demonically-enhanced truckers loitering out by the pumps. "Oh, crap!" Meg moans.

Moments later, Darling Sammy fills Dashing El Deano in on the details of the news story he just watched while Meg too-innocently wanders back over to this week's crapped-out piece of automotive trash from the brief little confab she so obviously engaged in with those demonically-enhanced truckers. The three climb back into the car alongside the sleeping Addled Kevin, and then it's...

...back on the road for some more nighttime driving along rain-streaked back highways. Addled Kevin finally wakes up to complain about his miserable lot in life, or whatever, but because he's devolved into nothing more than a wee bitty plot device at this point, I'm going to ignore him in favor of listening in on the tremendously amusing phone call Meg receives from My Sweet Baboo at this juncture. "I'm in a place called Perth," Castiel can be heard to state over Meg's cell. "As in Australia?" Dean growls from the front seat. Meg ignores him to ask of My Momentarily Inaudible Baboo, "What dogs?" "He says he's surrounded by unhappy dogs," Meg reports to her fellow passengers before returning to her phone to listen as Castiel frets, "They're chasing a rabbit around..." "Oh, okay!" Meg interrupts before telling the others, "He's at a dog track in Perth." "I'm surrounded by large, unhappy dogs!" My Deeply Confused Baboo pouts. Heh. Meg lightly informs Castiel that the dogs are unhappy because the rabbit is fake, then passes along the current coordinates of this week's crapped-out piece of automotive trash, and instantly, Castiel flutters into the back seat between Meg and Addled Kevin. Formal introductions are made, and then Castiel exposits that Hester and Anaias once served under him in their Heavenly garrison. "So, why are they pissed at us now?" Sam wonders, but Castiel has already moved on from that particular topic to murmur the following quietly horrified realization into Meg's ear: "You know, those racing dogs were miserable -- they can only think in ovals." Hee. Dean shouts at him to get back on point, and eventually, we learn that Hester and Anaias were "only following protocol." "If The Word Of God is revealed," Castiel explains, "a Keeper Of The Word will awaken," and "garrison code dictates you take The Keeper to the desert to learn The Word away from men." So, basically, Hester and Anaias will continue to chase them down because they're blindly following orders established by a God whom neither has seen in several millennia, which makes it even more important for everyone currently occupying this week's crapped-out piece of automotive trash to hole up in Dead Rufus's ridiculously scenic rustic homestead deep within the lush coastal rainforests of Montana's Rocky Mountains until this angel-related unpleasantness blows over.
