Probably some weird lineages were completely vanquished not only Capadocian lineages. Nobody knows why the power went out. My thoughts about the events:. Other supernatural beings, mostly Mages and Garou, surely were involved or, at the very least, had to deal with the Kindred Gehenna in addition to their own particular ends of the world.

Anyhooo… those are my thoughs on Gehenna. Such as the Kiasyd.
The travel to Enoch could be a initial rite for millenials, young vampires from 15, 14, 13th generation. Perhaps they got in Order of Hermes again, masquwrade as Vampires, or something mixed. Internally, I would hope to see many clans slightly changed, while not giving away there is a God, or there is a Caine.
Or perhaps they became Technocracy gehennna, in the case of helping to keep the masquerede saved, once it would be interesting to Technocracy that humanity still ignore supernatural activity.
