Dean: This isn't how I saw things going when I pushed over that first domino. Thing is, I've had more than a few dances with free will and fate, but as my dad used to say, "Fate is what you make it."




  • "Cadillac" by Lassie
(playing in the armored truck before the accident with the vampires)
  • "Rats" by The Kinks
(plays as Mary kills vampires)
  • "Got the Fever" by Kubla Khan Sync Placements
(playing in the diner as Betty and Kyle talk)


Mary: Office romances can mess up a work dynamic. And it's one thing if we're selling cars or whatever, but another when the stakes are life and death. So I just wanna keep things simple, you know?
John: In the moment.
John: First of all, vampires are nothing like they are in the movies. The sunlight and dead man's blood can stun them, but a stake to the heart won't kill them. Only way is with a good old decapitation.
Carlos: This is so disappointing.

Lata: What do you mean?

Carlos: We're hunting a vampire cult. I was expecting to find a castle. At least a moat.
Carlos: Bank heisting vampires would make such a fantastic movie.
Carlos: I'm sorry I never called you after our date.

Anton: Don't tell me the big, bad Hunter got scared.
Carlos: Maybe. Yeah. But, I'm not afraid to ask you on a second date tonight.

Anton: I'll have to check my schedule, but I'll let you know if I'm free.
Betty: Something's off about Mary Campbell. Breaking and entering, theft, a suspiciously dismissed aggravated assault. Way too many close calls. Her and her friends are up to something.

Trivia & References

"Cast Your Fate to the Wind" is a reference to the jazz instrumental by the same name by jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi
John: And if you're okay with "Omega Man" knowing about us...
John refers to Kyle as "Omega Man" because the movie Mary and Kyle saw together was The Omega Man.
Millie: Fate is what you make it. All right, tell me how to kill a Bela Lugosi so we can stop talking about our feelings already.
Bela Lugosi was a Hungarian-American actor best known for portraying Count Dracula in the 1931 movie Dracula. In Supernatural, Bela Talbot used the alias "Bela Lugosi" in 3.03 Bad Day at Black Rock.
Mary: Holy water hair commercial?

Carlos: Worked in Barstow.

After Lata douses Carlos' long hair in holy water, he whips it around like a model in a hair commercial, flicking holy water on the vampires, which burns them. Holy water was not used against vampires in Supernatural, although it was not established that it was not effective weapon against them. However, the Winchesters have dropped crucifixes into water to make it holy, and John had stated that crosses don't work on vampires which would also suggest holy water wouldn't work on vampires. Holy water affecting vampires is explained with the revelation that The Winchesters takes place in an alternate universe in 1.13 Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye.
Carlos: Last chance to leave, bobos.
In Spanish, calling someone a "bobo" is the equivalent of saying they are stupid.


Mary: He looks more like a Hunter to me. He's not a bad looking one either.
Dean made a similar comment after first seeing Mary in 4.03 In the Beginning.
"Sammy, wherever you are, Mom is a babe. I'm going to hell... again."
It is established that this group of vampires is not the ones that killed Mary's cousin Maggie. It also appears that Mary is looking for them, suggesting that the vampires responsible are still out there.
Lata holds a list of the names of several Men of Letters. Amongst those that can be read are:
  • Q.I.R.: Quentin Isaac Rankrish (illegible)
  • J.G.S.: Joshua Ginseppe Smith
  • A.N.L.: Amelia Nicole Lonherangrin
  • L.F.M.: Lars Franklin Martin
  • R.J.M.: Rafael Jude Markham
  • C.L.A.: Charles Leonard Augeos
  • R.T.S.: Robert Thomas Smith
  • H.E.W.: Henry Eric Winchester
  • D.A.J.: Delphine Arielle Jonas
  • M.R.A.: Micah Richard Allen
  • W.G.B.: Wesley Gregor Bryant
  • E.A.S.: Emmett Avery Sampson
  • R.L.W.: Richard Lanar Weston
  • T.C.B.: Tatiana Camille Bancher
Although not addressed, Rafael Jude Markham might be Mr. Markham, a senior Man of Letters who expelled Cuthbert Sinclair from the order as seen in flashbacks in 10.19 The Werther Project.
John: First of all, vampires are nothing like they are in the movies. The sunlight and dead man's blood can stun them, but a stake to the heart won't kill them. The only way is a good old decapitation.
This is similar to John's speech to Sam and Dean about vampires in 1.20 Dead Man's Blood.
The vampires in this episode appear to have a less human appearance, specifically a more pronounced brow ridge, than vampires seen in Supernatural. The vampires also appear to have more superhuman abilities than their Supernatural counterparts, as seen by them leaping through the air.
