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.

This finale episode is called "Lucifer Rising", which mirrors the title of the season premier, "Lazarus Rising". 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).

It's the archangel! I'll hold him off, I'll hold them ALL off! Just stop Sam!
