Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (2)
Jensen Ackles appears shirtless in this episode. This was devised by Eric Kripke to meet the overwhelming number of requests he was receiving from fans for Ackles to appear wearing less clothes.
In the first minutes of the show, we follow S.W.A.T. members into the house. The music playing is "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly which pays homage to the 1986 movie, Manhunter (1986), where this exact scenario was first seen. A Good Deal By Mommy and Daddy has replaced "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly for the streaming Netflix version.
The closed captioning for the episode reveals that "Poison Whiskey" by Lynyrd Skynyrd was supposed to feature during Sam's fight with the Dean/Shapeshifter, the lyrics even run in full in the captions though a regular dramatic piece of score music is heard instead.
This is the first time Sam and Dean's last name (Winchester) is said.
Jensen Ackles also played the brother of another Sam in Dark Angel with Jessica Alba. Also in Dark Angel he played 2 versions of himself Ben/Alec just like in season 1 of Supernatural with the shape shifter.

The shapeshifter and Rebecca talk about genetic mutation and evolution. This is the main theme in the X-men films, and one mutant - Mystique is a shapeshifter

First instance where the boys physically fight each other (a signature move of the show). In this case, it's the shapeshifter as Dean, versus Sam.
