She yells at the boys for always calling Castiel even though he is in the middle of a civil war. She continues on how insignificant they are and how Castiel is an angel. Dean and Rachel keep arguing until Castiel appears and tells Rachel that he will handle this. She leaves them to their business. Later Rachel summons Castiel to a warehouse. She tells Castiel she is hearing rumors of side deals that Castiel could be possibly making. She demands to know if the rumours about "his dirty little secret" are true. Castiel answers and says "I have to defeat Raphael" and that he has no choice. Rachel then attacks him and the two get into a fight and Castiel kills Rachel. She does though manage to wound Castiel, and Castiel is weakened.
