- The episode title is a reference to the original members of Team Free Will coming up with a plan to trap God. It is also a reference to the fact that God has trapped Sam Winchester and Eileen Leahy.
- The CW's official summary for the episode misspells Shoshannah Stern as "Shoshanna Stern".
- It is revealed Benny was killed by pack of vampires after his return.
- Benny is revealed to be infamous in Purgatory for his escape and subsequent return.
- It also implies that monsters permanently die when killed in purgatory since Benny is said to be dead.
- The visions God shows Sam:
- Castiel is revealed to be trapped in the Ma'lak Box after being given a mark to trap God.
- Eileen, Donna, Claire, and the other girls are implied to have been killed by monsters, with Claire being killed by vampires.
- Sam and Dean are turned into vampires and Dean kills Jody, while Bobby kills Sam by decapitation. It's unknown what happens to Dean after Sam is killed by Bobby.
- Eve is confirmed to have returned to Purgatory after Dean killed her and wants revenge on Team Free Will.
- Interestingly though, Leviathans are revealed to be currently following Eve's orders, which stands in contrast to Season 7, during which they were shown to look down on her. One Leviathan also referred to Eve as "Mother," and claimed the Leviathans are hers. Given Eve's mysterious background and relationship with the Leviathans, this further insinuates her connection to the Leviathan race.
- It is revealed Sam's visions were God's memories of other versions of Sam and Dean.
- God reveals that he manipulated events so that Eileen would be resurrected as he needed a way to spy on the Winchesters. However, God admits that it wasn't all him as God only gave Sam half the spell and Sam did the rest.
- After making Sam lose hope, God is able to heal his wound, causing his to be healed as well, and he returns to his full power.
- This episode shows it is now 2020.
- It's revealed that the Leviathan Blossom grows from the rotting remains of a dead Leviathan. However, it can take months to grow.
- This indicates God had created the Leviathan before he trapped the Darkness.
- It's revealed that, if God is trapped, the law of nature prevails, with the monsters dominating everything.
- Interestingly, even though Leviathans were able to overpower Castiel before, Castiel, despite his powers being stated to be falling, was able to telekinetically throw a Leviathan. Notably, the Leviathans chose not to engage Castiel directly but instead trap him in an Angel Trap to prevent him from using his powers. Castiel was also able to escape from the Leviathans without many injuries.
- This is the first time Jody interacts with the Alternate Bobby.
