|Sam calls Dean to tell him about Lucifer's visit, and to say he wants to rejoin Dean in the battle of the Apocalypse. Dean says they are better off apart. Later, Dean awakens five years in the future in a devastated city. There he is attacked by humans who have been infected with a demonic virus that turns humans into mindless, flesh-eating zombies. Zachariah appears to Dean and explains that this is what will happen if Dean doesn't say yes to Michael. Dean meets up with a future Dean, who tells him that the virus is the Devil's endgame for destroying mankind. He also meets Sam, now Lucifer's vessel. Zach brings him back to 2009 and expects him to now say yes -- but Dean says no, he's learned a different lesson, and it reunites him with Sam in the present.|
- Castiel: Why not go get washed up for the orgy?
- Dean: What are you, stoned?
Castiel: Generally, yeah.
- Sam: What do we do now?
Dean: We make our own future.
- How will Dean and Sam avoid the future that Zach has shown Dean?
- Why didn't the Prophet Chuck see what was coming?
- Will Dean tell Sam what he saw in the future?
- In at least one version of the future, Sam becomes Lucifer's vessel.
- In the future shown, Castiel becomes human and indulges completely!
- Future Dean is hardened and desperate.
- This week's episode, set in a war-torn future, was actually filmed on the sets from Watchmen (also filmed in Vancouver), in which Jeffrey Dean Morgan starred as the Comedian.
- When Dean wakes up in the future and looks out the window, a movie theater marquee can be seen that reads "Now Playing: Route 666." This was the name of an episode in season 1.
- The Contours - "Do You Love Me (Now That I Can Dance)"
- Dean tells Sam, "Maybe we are each other's Achille's heel," referring to the great Greek warrior Achilles who, as a child, was dipped in a potion by his mother so he would be invincible, except for his heel, by which she held him. At the battle of Troy, he was shot in the heel by a poisoned arrow and died. The idiom "Achille's hell" mean any one vulnerable spot in an otherwise strong defense.
