Maybe it's one of those "This bad guy is weak to light and I'm a dark power person, so I need a light power person and that's YOU!" type of deals?

Baddie1 and Carmilla are most likely both darkness though. There is no elemental advantage so to speak. In a versus match there, you have raw darkness vs raw darkness. Ego, Carmilla still is more powerful than Baddie1 if she is still suppressing him, who is weaker than Gabe who happens to be stronger than SATAN now. Puts Baddie1 really low on the power charts.

Even if you write off the victory over Satan as plot device and God's intervention, Gabe still has grown a good deal since his encounter with Carmilla.

This all begs the question, does Gabe LOSE any abilities or powers because of that last battle? (Or maybe he isn't allowed to use them, like Samus. ZING!)

I hate to draw a Dragon Ball Z comparison, but there's a somewhat similar scenario in the Majin Buu saga in which a wizard named Babidi has in his possession the sealed up Buu; Goku was stronger than Babidi and his henchmen put together yet Buu was way stronger than Goku or any of his allies at the time, despite being dormant for millions of years.

It might be the same case in LoS. Carmilla cast a spell on this evil force so that it could only be contained, not destroyed.

That's how it is with a lot of things. It's used a lot in JRPGs, the "ancient evil" being sealed away by some wizard. In most cases, it's SEALED away because that's the most that can be done(it can't be defeated by the one who seals it, because it's just TOO strong). Eventually, the seal is broken and this evil wrecks havok on the world, until the main hero vanquishes it.

Any abilities he cant use? well Id assume his infinite magic energy would go back to normal.

I'd rather have it late than bugged.  Our patience should be worth it though.  As the 2 sayings go: "good things come to those who wait." and "Patience is a virtue."

I don't think the end implied Gabriel was stronger than Satan; only that he was stronger than him when Satan when on Earth.  His bio says "However, he is not able to command his full strength while chained to the earthly plane, and thus remains weakened against Heaven's chosen."  When on Earth, I think Satan has to rely on his cunning a lot more than his brute strength, so the boss of Reverie could have more raw power than Satan does when you fight him in the game.  

oh, and i'll laugh if the boss turns out to be Walter and Gabriel captures his soul into a relic, transforming him into Dracula.
