When the last few of the 66 Seals are broken by Lilith's minions, Sam and Dean prepare for the big and probably futile fight in very different ways. Sam joins Ruby on a final attempt to kill Lilith before Lucifer rises, while Castiel and Zachariah tell Dean that it's time to play his part in stopping Lucifer.
Did You Know?
Zacharia, speaking to Dean, "You're going to stop Lucifer. You're our own little Russel Crowe, complete with surly attitude". In the 2000 movie 'Gladiator', an evil despot rises to the throne of Rome and, after much struggle, Crowe's gladiator character kills the despot in the combat arena. Note that in the movie a lot of very powerful people, who did nothing to stop the despot, watch this fight to the death, considering gladiatorial matches to be entertainment. See more
The chapel where the main action occurs (in the opening, and with Lilith) has an altar emblazoned with IHS, the Ignation order of the Society of Jesus (aka Jesuits). Jesuits work with nuns, but only formally admitted nuns into their order in 2014. So, the idea of a Jesuit overseeing a convent of nuns doesn't make sense as of 2009 (when Season 4 was airing).

You turned yourself... into a freak! A monster. And now, you're not gonna bite! I'm sorry, but that is honestly adorable!
