Sam and Dean continue to collect the pieces necessary to open a rift to the other world in order to save their family. Their latest quest leads them to a Men of Letters bunker from the 1920s and a hungry God from another dimension. Meanwhile, Ketch makes a shocking decision about Gabriel after an unruly encounter with Asmodeus.

The plot about the tentacled being coming through an interdimensional portal by way of an incantation and sacrifice, seem be a page torn out of an HP Lovecraft novel, such as the Dunwich Horror. In the novel, one of the main characters needed a spellbook called the Necronomicon to open the doorway. It is interesting to note that Dean Stockwell
of Quantum Leap
(1989) and Battlestar Galactica
(2004) fame, was both in the original adaptation The Dunwich Horror
(1970) and the remake of The Dunwich Horror
(2009), as Wilbur Whateley and Dr. Henry Armitage respectively. See more
As previously learned one of the ingredients needed for the spell to open a interdimensional rift is Grace of an Archangel, which is an extremely rare item. There were only four Archangels: Michael, Lucifer, Rafael and Gabriel. As of 1921 Michael and Rafael were in heaven and hadn't been on Earth in centuries (the last time Michael was on Earth was likely when he was here as Jesus), Lucifer was locked in the cage in hell and had been there since the time of Cain and Able (it was the act of trying to corrupt Able that caused God to lock Lucifer in the cage) and Gabriel was thought to be dead by everyone, including the other angels. So it seems extremely implausible that the Men of Letters had one vial of an Archangel's Grace, let alone two of them. See more
There it is! Jinkies!
You're gonna stop saying that eventually, right?
I don't know. Probably not.
