Alright well, I was just rereading the Book of Cain recently and I just came over a line that I missed the first time.
In the book it says that when Tyrael destroyed the Worldstone Baal's body is destroyed by the explosion, after he hurls his sword into it. However, it also said, "Whatever happened to Tyrael after this is unknown, but it is clear that his physical form was destroyed like Baal's"
So where am I going with this? Well it points to two things:
1) Tyrael's body was destroy yet clearly he's in Diablo 3 physically.
2) Does it mean that when he blow up the Worldstone that something may have happened to him?
3) Is it possible that Baal isn't dead either or his body can be retreived?
So to point #1. Tyrael is either going to show up in D3 as himself or somewhere along the lines he'll get his body back / get a new one. If this is true, that means that angels possibly can possess humans / nephelum and use it as a host. More or less similar to how the Prime Evils have been doing.
Going to point #2. Chris Metzen mentioned the fact that the Worldstone physically was in the world of Sanctuary but, spiritually it was still in the Pandemonium Fortress(PF). So being that the case, when Tyrael blow up the Worldstone. Was it possible that his spirit was somehow warped from Sanctuary to the PF. It could possibly be the reason that he was able to go back to the High Heavens(as PF is the one place that connects Heaven and Hell).
Point #3. Also in the lore panel someone asked what happened to Andariel and Duriel's bodies. Metzen answered, "I wouldn't leave them laying around". And with the whole theory that Diablo is grabbin bodies and merging with them using the Black Soulstone, I could see an expansion coming with alot of interesting things to come.(Mephisto combined with Baal final boss of the next expansion, ohwut? fuse Imperius and Diablo and you get one BAMF, ohsht!)
And last, but definitely not least, there was a note that Cain wrote after explaining what happened to Tyrael. Summerizing it up it stated earlier that Tyrael's body was destroyed but, "recent events surrounding the fallen star have caused me to begin formulating theories which I dare not express here." So it implies 2 things: 1) Cain possibly thinks theres something fishy going on with Tyrael or
2) He thinks that its possible that Baal and maybe other evils can come back just like Tyrael.
Sorry of the wall of text but with D3 coming soon, my mind is just wondering. I can't wait to see the lore unfold before my eyes
