  • Sam and Dean are reunited with Mary in this episode. They parted ways in "The Foundry".

  • Billie the Reaper previously appeared in the Season 11 episode "Alpha and Omega".
  • This is the first time Sam and Dean visit Canada, aside from their visit to the alternate universe of Vancouver in season 6 episode "The French Mistake".


  • The episode was watched by 1.80 million viewers and got a 0.7 rating.
  • According to Jody Mills, she first met Asa Fox when he came through Sioux Falls on a ghoul hunt during which time he identified himself as FBI Agent Fox Mulder. Fox Mulder was one of the protagonists of the show The X-Files where he and his partner Special Agent Dana Scully investigated aliens and other paranormal phenomenon.
  • Sam described Dean as someone who prefers anime porn or hentai. This was revealed in season 7 episode "Meet the New Boss".
  • Garth Fitzgerald IV is mentioned in this episode. Somehow, he became aware of Sam's possession by Lucifer and had passed on this information to other hunters.
  • This episode is the first time a full exorcism has been performed since Mother's Little Helper two and a half years earlier. While Sam exorcised Crowley in Hell's Angel, he didn't return to Hell but rather his usual vessel. It was also to rescue Crowley, not to defeat him.
  • In the flashback, Mary was shown driving a blue car. This same car appeared in Bobby's dream world in "Dream A Little Dream Of Me".


  • While trying to determine who Jael is possessing, everyone acts like it could be Dean. However, due to having the anti-possession tattoo, Dean can't be possessed.
    • The others did not know that Dean had the tattoo, so from their knowledge he was still a suspect. It is unknown however why Sam didn't point out that it couldn't be Dean.
  • In the flashback to 1980 there is a mid-90's GMC Sonoma pickup parked in front of Asa Fox's house.
