|CLAIRE NOVAK RETURNS — When Claire Novak gets a lead on her mother, Amelia, who has been missing for years, Castiel asks Sam and Dean to help her. Castiel feels guilty for what he did to the Novak family and wants to make amends by reuniting Claire with her mom. However, when they find out what took Amelia, they realize there is a chance Claire may not get her happy ending.|
- "YOU WANT IN ON THIS TOO?"- Dean to Sam when Cas and Claire want to ride along with him to the crime scene.
- "EPIC, BOTTOM-FEEDING DISATERS." - Grigori Holloway describing the human race.
- "I DON'T KNOW, YOU SEEM PRETTY OLD."- Claire to Dean when he tells her that hunting won't lead to a long life.
- "I WILL KEEP FIGHTING. I'LL KEEP SWINGING UNTIL I GOT NOTHING LEFT." - Dean to Claire when she asks if he'll be
|Kathryn Love Newton
|Name: Tamiel (Peter Holloway)|
|Motivation: To feed on the souls of humans|
|Fate: Killed by Claire Novak|
- Why wasn't Castiel able to heal Amelia?
- Are there other gregori out there feeding on human souls?
- If Tamiel was feeding on the souls of his victims, why did the people simply "fade" and die, instead of eventually becoming soulless crazies (like we saw in season 9)?
- How will Claire get along with Jody Mills and Alex?
- Claire's mother was missing for 2 years
- The doorway to heaven must be open now, because Amelia didn't get stuck in the veil -- she went straight to heaven
- Jimmy Novak and his wife Amelia must be soul mates, because they share the same heaven
- Dean and Sam have very different opinions about how Cas should move forward with Claire. Dean suggests that Cas give Claire some room to sort herself out, but Sam feels that Cas is the closest thing Claire has to family, so he shouldn't leave her alone.
- Gregori were initially sent to protect humans, but according to Tamiel, they have been feeding on human souls since the creation of man.
- Claire was in Tulsa Memorial Hospital; she was also staying at the Curtis' Motor Court.
- Russell Porter, who played Ronnie Cartwright in this episode also played Dean's neighbor, Sid, in "Exile on Main Street" (Season 6).
- Jensen and Kathryn both play golf in real life, and they both apparently play very well.
- Amelia was missing for two years.
- The episode title, Angel Heart, may refer to the 1987 horror film of the same title. The movie is about a man who made a deal with the devil, but doesn't remember it; the devil hires him as a private investigator, to track himself down.
- Dean jokes about himself, Cas, Sam and Claire being "Three Men and A Lady". This refers to the 1990 comedy film "Three Men and a Little Lady". The film was the sequel to the 1987 comedy "Three Men and a Baby". In the franchise, three bachelors find themselves forced to work together to raise a baby girl.
- Castiel gives Claire a stuffed "Grumpy Cat" for her birthday. Grumpy cat is a cat that has become popular on social media because she appears to have a grumpy-looking face. Castiel says he got the stuffed toy from "Hot Topical", referring to the retail chain "Hot Topic" that specializes in pop culture merchandise.
- Dean and Cas' aliases at the murder scene are Agents "Clapton" and Paige" referring to guitarists Eric Clapton and Jimmy Paige. Both performers played lead guitar for the group The Yardbirds, but they both went on to have successful careersafter leaving that group: Jimmy Paige with Led Zeppelin, and Eric Clapton with several other bands before launching a solo career.
- At the same murder scene, the officer answers a phone call "Officer Coltrane". This (surprisingly) is not a reference to legendary jazz saxophonist John Coltrane, but is instead a reference to Roscoe P. Coltrane, one of the characters from the 1980s era television comedy "The Dukes of Hazzard".
- "Caddyshack" (1980) and "Happy Gilmore" (1996) were both comedy films about golf.
- Tamiel prefers to think of himself as a "gourmand" or someone who enjoys eating.
- "Blues are turning black" -- by Stephen Emil Dudas (plays when Claire is at Suzie's bar looking for Ronnie Cartwright
- "Mind Y'own Business" -- by Stephen Emil Dudas (plays when Dean and Castiel are questioning Ronnie at the bar
- "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" -- by Willie Nelson (plays as Claire is leaving in the taxi)
