|Episode synopsis: While Crowley tries to gain Amara's trust and exert some control over her as her power grows, the Winchesters race to save Castiel from Rowena's attack dog spell before his condition worsens.|
- Castiel - "The Darkness has almost infinite power. I'm not sure what 'growing up' means in this case."
- Rowena - "But as you grow and become stronger, your true destiny will become clear to you."
- Crowley - "She wants to eat everyone. Don't take is personally."
- How long will it be before Crowley completely loses control of Amara?
- What does Amara want?
- What will Rowena do now?
- Amara does not want the world to be all evil, but she will not say what she wants with humanity.
- Dean feels like he deserved the beating he got from Cas, because of that Dean did to Cas when he had the Mark of Cain.
- Low-level angels and low-level demons are conspiring to fight the Darkness.
- This is the 5th episode of Supernatural that Jensen Ackles has directed. (The other four are "Weekend at Bobby's", "The Girl Next Door", "Heartache", and "Soul Survivor").
- Cas' car is a 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V; and Cas seems hurt that Sam called his car "crappy".
- Crowley gives Amara a children's pop up book titled "Uncle Hoppity", but she is already reading "The Inferno", by Dante Alighieri -- the first book of his "The Divine Comedy" epic poem.
- "Sonny's Taxi Cab" is the name on the taxi when Dean arrives to pick up Rowena.
- "Fortune Nookie" seems to have replaced "BustyAsianBeauties.com" as Dean's preferred pornographic website.
- At the end of the episode, Dean clearly feels guilty when he says he "had it coming", referring to the beating he gave Castiel in season 10 "The Prisoner".
- A mai tai is a rum-based tropical drink.
- Dean refers to Crowley's "ninjas" being after Rowena. Historically, in feudal Japan, ninjas were used as mercenaries and for assassinations.
- Florence Nightingale lived during the 1800s and is considered the founder of modern day nursing.
- "Big One" -- by Louden Swain (plays during the angel/demon bar scene)
