- "First Blood" is a reference to the 1982 film of the same name, where Vietnam veteran John Rambo (starred Sylvester Stallone) is also pursued by the authorities through the woods.
- The typewriter Mick Davies uses to communicate is similar to concept of the Selectric 251, an inter-universe typewriter and communication device, from the television show Fringe.

- The boys spent two months in a Maximum Security (Supermax) Facility in Colorado, in which ADX Florence is located, ADX Florence is a Supermax in which terrorists (Eric Rudolph, Zacarias Moussaoui, Theodore Kaczynski, etc), spys (Robert Hanssen, Harold Nicholson, etc), Cartel Leaders (Osiel Cardenas and Juan Garcia Obrego) and a FARC Leader (Simon Trinidad) are convicted and spent in a 23-hours day in solitary confinement, much like Dean and Sam spent in this episode.
- Rick mentions Sam and Dean making it to the list of the FBI's Most Wanted in 2011. This is a reference to the two Leviathans who posed as Sam and Dean and committed several murders across different states. They appeared in "Slash Fiction".

- Castiel has updated his voicemail: "This is my voice mail. Make your...voice...a mail."
