- 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.
