|The Winchesters investigate several deaths involving spontaneous combustion that lead them to another encounter with the Thule society.
- Sam to Dean - "Dude, maybe we shouldn't touch anything until we figure out if this stuff wants to kill us or not."
- Christophe to Dean - "You don't understand. He'll kill me."
Dean's reply (holding his gun) - "What do you think this is? A tickle party?"
- Dean to Christophe - "Oh, family drama's a bit*h, ain't it?"
- Dean (to Hitler as he shoots him) - "Heil, this."
|Allison Paige ("Ellie")||Keenan Tracey (Christophe")|
- What's really bothering Dean about Mary's leaving? Does he feel responsible? And since Amara (supposedly) brought Mary back for him, does he feel guilty that Mary is no longer happy in heaven, but here on Earth where she feels out of place?
- Did burning the Commander's body destroy the pocket watch? If not, Is it still possible to somehow resurrect Hitler?
- Aaron Bass and his golem have been using the Thule's red ledger to hunt down members of the Thule Society and kill them
- The Thule have been tracking all of Hitler's descendants, which suggests more may still be out there.
- The episode takes place in Columbus, Ohio, but when Christophe abducts Ellie in the police car, "Toledo Police" is printed on the side of the police car.
- This may be the first time in 12 seasons that Sam has NOT forgotten the pie!
- Columbus, Ohio is a 13-hour drive from Lebanon, Kansas (where the bunker is); if the Winchesters left the morning of the attacks, they would have had a difficult time arriving at the antiques store before nightfall, but they clearly arrive while it's still daylight.
- "Das Murmeltier" in German means "the Marmot"; apparently, there is no bar in Berlin by that name (Thanks, Pignapoke, for helping me fill in this bit of trivia!)
- "Scrooge McDuck" is an animated Walt Disney character created during the 1940s; he is Donald Duck's wealthy, miserly uncle and grand-uncle to Huey, Dewey, and Louie.
- In psychological terms, "sublimation" refers to diverting the expression of an impulse or desire (generally an unacceptable one) by changing it into one that is more socially acceptable. An example would be sublimating grief by devoting oneself to work.
- A "hookup culture" encouragesand accepts casual sexual encounters
- Putting on "big girl pants" is a euphemism for putting aside childish behaviors and acting like an adult
- "Das blut" was accurately translated and does mean "the blood" in German
- According to the Urban Dictionary, a "tickle party" refers to someone being held down and tickled against his or her will (possibly by ore than one person); the term tends to have sexual implications
- According to Harry Potter lore, a "horcrux" is an object that can be used by a wizard to hide a piece of his or her soul
- "Harry Potter" is the fictional protagonist from a series of popular fantasy books and movies. The character was created by author J.K. Rowling
- "O.G." is an acronym for "Old gangster", "Original gangster", or "Old git"; it implies someone who is older and/or has been around for a while
- "Millennial" is a generational/demographic description that refers to people born roughly between 1982 and 2004 (or more generally, from the early 1980s through the early 2000s)
- Dean asks if Hitler's new vessel has both testicles. According to a report from a WWII German army medic, Hitler was a crypotorchid (meaning he only had one descended testicle); too much information, right?
- Anton Bruckner -- Symphony #7 in E Major (Finale):plays during the scene in Hitler's bunker
- Richard Wagner -- Das Rheingold (Prelude): plays in the airplane hangar as the Thule are conducting the resurrection ritual
