Did You Know?


After Jimmy is shot by Amelia (possessed by a demon), he falls to his knees and he is in the middle of the floor. however when Castiel (possessing Claire) kneels by his side and talks with him, he is leaning against a wall on the side of the room. He should still be in the middle of the floor unless he moved himself over (off screen) during the fight. See more »


When Sam and Dean are going after Jimmy in the Impala they appear to be alone, but moments later Anna appears in the backseat. If you look closely in between the actors, before Anna appears, you can see the shoulder of the actress in the backseat meaning she was in the car the entire time and did not appear out of thin air as angels usually do.

Sam Winchester: Sorry, uh, this is funny to you?
Dean Winchester: Mr. Big-Bad-Prison-Guard Jimmy McMook gives you the slip? Yeah, it's pretty funny. What were you doing anyway?
Sam Winchester: I was getting a Coke!
Dean Winchester: [sarcastically] Was it a refreshing Coke?

Misha Collins is the best supporting actor of the year .. hands down!
2 May 2009 | by (Away) – See all my reviews

This episode was insanely amazing, Misha Collins was terrific like always, I totally fell in love with his performance.

and This episode is a great setup for the up coming two final episodes which I think it will be defiantly finale "like season 1 finale".

I'm not sure about Julie McNiven's character "Anna", I don't think she's adding something to the events. I guess her work is done many episodes ago.

The only character which I think is very needed to be in the finale is John "Jeffrey Dean Morgan" he's really a powerful actor and very important to be around when his boys are in danger and as a big fan of the show I can say : I miss you man! That's it :)
