Well Gabrielle is about to Go Mad from the Revelation......although I am surprised that she is since she does go to a school with various magical beings and was part of a massive battle of Good vs Evil, provided that this strip timeline wise takes place after Mel/Cerise War. Or is it that Heaven and Hell not only exist but Heaven is apparently actively helping Naomi is what is causing her freakout?

I think she was freaking out over the fact that it's Prudence who's the angel, as she doesn't seem like the "divine warrior" type.

I'm not surprised by Gaby's shock. Its one thing to believe in the monsters and one can argue that succubi and demons are just another form of cryptid. But angels bring up a whole plethora of disturbing possibilities.

But she must know about them already because she recognized what the weapon was. I think her shock is that it's Prudence.

It's also possible that Gabby's use of the adjective "divine" was a coincidence... Except now she realizes it isn't.
For those curious: my avatar is an artistic rendering of a spaceship I drew for a primitive (by today's standards) multiplayer online game called XPilot. (More about both on my website.)

Bzzz.

Gabz gets the smug face wiped off her... face.

Mmmr, that doesn't seem very likely to me. Context pretty clearly indicates she meant 'divine' as in, from heaven. So she knows that there's a heaven and that angels live there and wield these things. What's shocking to her is that Prudence is the owner. The question is, why?

Is it just because Prudence doesn't seem the type? Is it because she can't believe she had an angel right under her nose this whole time and didn't realize it? Is it because Naomi having a guardian angel throws a wrench into her plans?

All of these are possibilities lordoffling.

I highly doubt that the students at Artemis know nothing about angels. Quite possibly the forces of heaven may collaborate with the slayers when they need to get around certain pesky loopholes regarding angel-demon relations. Most likely they are seen as allies in the fight against evil and not to be trifled with.

It most certainly will focus Gabrielle's attention on Prudence and maybe she'll be nicer to Naomi in the process.

Gabby was witness to a conflict that involved actual goddesses. She goes to a school that is not simply named after Aphrodite, but apparently under the goddess' own control. I agree that her shock must be that Prudence, with whom she has been living under the same roof, is an actual angel.

Their school is named after Artemis, who's Aphrodite's daughter.

Aphrodite is either Artemis's sister or her great-aunt, not her mother. Artemis's mother is Leto.

@Tako: I could've sworn that Aphrodite and Ares were the parents of Artemis and Apollo, but a quick google search later reveals I was way off (I had both her parents wrong). :-$

Prudence is blissfully unaware of how "polishing a sword all night" can be interpreted.

And to make another connection between DC and Greek mythology, there's the story of Sipriotes, a boy who was transformed into a girl by Artemis when he accidentally came across the goddess bathing.
