So, Michael says he took care of Lucifer "in a way most people could never understand". I think this refers to the time when Lucifer received the Mark and was corrupted, similarly to how Sam took care of Dean (or tried to, anyway), to keep him from falling under the Mark's influence.

Thoughts? Aside from the obvious "Mark of Cain/Amara hadn't been thought of at the time".
