Questions that were raised

Seriously?
11(5.1%)
Kelly spends all that time painting a mural that her kid will never remember, but 30 seconds recording her only message to him?
16(7.4%)
An apple tree in the Lucifetus's nursery? Really?
12(5.5%)
If a 'massive power outage' was traced to one house, why weren't power trucks there?
14(6.5%)
Did the Winchesters really never plan to save Kelly by extracting the grace before the Lucifetus was born? And if they did plan to do that, why didn't they put their plan into action when they arrived?
17(7.8%)
Why was Dean surprised when Cas healed him?
11(5.1%)
What do AU!World's angels and demons use as vessels if most of the people are dead, and no one's going to agree to be an angel vessel?
19(8.8%)
And how do the demons grow horns?
13(6.0%)
And why do the angels wear necklaces of baby ears?
21(9.7%)
Why were the Winchesters so convinced AU!Bobby should know them?
10(4.6%)
How did Michael and Lucifer fight each other in AU!World without Dean and Sam as their vessels?
17(7.8%)
Tempter Demon? What's up with that? Are there different types of demons in AU!World?
15(6.9%)
Was Cas jumping back into AU!World really part of the plan, even though Crowley had already finished the spell?
12(5.5%)
Why were Cas's wings growing out of his head?
9(4.1%)
Who's actually dead, as in, forever dead?
20(9.2%)
You forgot my question, but I'll ask it in the comments
