  • "Born to Be Wild" by Steppenwolf
(playing on the radio in the Impala when Sam, Dean and Mary hit the road; also played in 7.23 Survival of the Fittest)


Mary: Castiel. After you left Heaven, when did it start to feel like you fit? Like you... belonged here.
Castiel: Well, I'm not sure I do. Mary... You do belong here.
Crowley: Bumping into each other. Working the same leads. What are the odds, Cassie? Fate brought us together.

Castiel: Not interested.

Crowley: Why not? We made a somewhat effective team against Amara. It's been months-I mean months since we last tried to kill each other. We've both got very, very good reasons to want Lucifer dead. Besides. While you were gabbing with Vince's second fiddle, I was ransacking his room. Found these, postcards from his beloved sister Wendy. Oh looky here, an address and everything. Worth a look?
Castiel: I should have known there was something you weren't telling me. Rowena.

Crowley: So, Mother and I had an unfortunate, if not embarrassing, run-in with Lucifer. You're just mad you're only my second choice for a Lucifer hunt team-up.
Castiel: No, actually I think it's sweet. I thought your motivation was ambition and revenge. Now I know you just want to save your mother.

Crowley: It's not about saving her. Lucifer has made off with a colossally powerful witch, who by the way is the only person alive who can slam him back in the Cage. He will either kill her or control her. Or she will offer her services to the biggest bad in town, in order to save her neck, like she always does. Do any of those sound like particularly good outcomes to you?
Sam: Look I'm happy too, Dean, I am. I'm overjoyed. But, there's something about her, I mean something going on with with her.

Dean: Yeah. She's adjusting.
Sam: No, she's struggling. I mean she's trying to bury herself in hunting to avoid dealing.
Dean: And how do you know that?

Sam: Years of personal experience. I don't know, man. Like mother like sons.
Rowena: A druidic glyph. I'm using a hybrid spell of my own device -- Book of the Damned and Celtic magic. It should give your vessel the resiliency and strength of the mightiest tree.
Lucifer: Oh. There's a woody joke in there somewhere.
Lucifer: Decapitation is far too merciful for you, ginger bitch!
Rowena: Until you forced me to get back in the game, I tried to forget about Lucifer. I loathe him, and I loathe that I had any part in letting him out of the pit that holds him.

Castiel: So you'll help us then?

Rowena: Good God no. That whole FBI pantsuit look, not my hex bag. But if you get Lucifer cornered and find yourself in need. I'm there.
Dean: And, um, listen, apologies if me and Sam hijacked or sidelined you in any way. I mean, this was your case, and you kicked ass, again.

Mary: I kicked ass? You saved me, I-

Dean: Yeah, but you were right. Those kids were innocent. We didn't even know what Moriarty's deal was.
Dean: Mom it's okay, alright. You're home now.

Mary: No. I'm not. I miss John. I miss my boys.
Sam: We're right here, Mom.
Mary: I know. In my head. But I'm still mourning them as I knew them. My baby Sam. My little boy Dean. Just feels like yesterday we were together in Heaven, and now I'm here, and John is gone and they're gone. And every moment I spend with you reminds me of every moment I lost with them. And I thought hunting and working would clear my head...
Sam: Mom, what are you trying to say?

Mary: I have to go. Sorry. I'm so, so sorry. I just need a little time.
Mary: I love you. I love you both.

Trivia & References

Dean: All right. So what have you found on her majesty's secret suck-bags?
A reference to the James Bond story, On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Dean: Of course she's shaky. She hasn't been on this planet since Jane Fonda was wearing leg warmers.
Actress Jane Fonda helped to start the aerobics craze with her early '80s workout videos and books.
Castiel and Crowley use the aliases "Agent Beyoncé" and "Agent Jay Z." A reference to the singer and rapper, respectively. Mary uses the alias "Agent Shirley Partridge," Dean uses "Agent Cassidy" and Sam uses "Agent Bonaduce," a reference to the Partridge Family. Which starred David Cassidy, who is the father of Supernatural alum Katie Cassidy.
The motel room the Winchesters stay in, the Royal Funk, with its purple color scheme and the symbol in the motel room partition, is a tribute to the late Minnesota native Prince who died on April 21, 2016. The interlocked gender symbols in the partition, which typically represent heterosexuality, are a reference to the symbol Prince adopted as his name in 1993, which was a combination of the male and female gender symbols, and was dubbed "the Love Symbol."
Lucifer: You got any witch spells locked up in that witchy brain of yours? I thought this one would last longer before going all Keith Richards on me. This vessel hopping's getting old. Just as I get used to limitations in one meat sack, I gotta cut bait and jump to the next flawed lump.
Keith Richards is a founding member of English rock band The Rolling Stones. Born in 1943, he has long appeared wizened and aged, possibly due to a hard life of drugs and rock and roll.
Rowena uses the ash of a Hawthorne tree when drawing the druidic glyph on Lucifer's chest. In Celtic tree astrology, one of the things the Hawthorne tree represents is the idea of duality, an outward persona which belies a different inner persona -- much like angels taking vessels.
Lucifer: Red, what did you do!?

Rowena: Sped up the decaying process, my Lord. You thought Keith Richards was bad? Try Iggy Pop.

Punk musician Iggy Pop looks like he has had an even harder life than Keith Richards.


Gwenda Lorenzetti, who played Cheryl Kellinger, previously played Susan Bishop in 5.11 Sam, Interrupted.
When Mary is possessed, she pushes Sam to the ground and chokes Dean. Dean then proceeds to say "You have to fight this." This is a parallel from 1.22 Devil's Trap where similar events occur and Dean says to John, "Dad! Dad, don’t you let it kill me!"
As Dean leaves the store with a bag of jerky he walks past, and takes appreciative note of, a motorcycle. The bike, a British Triumph Bonneville, may belong to Mr. Ketch.
The deer's head appears in Vince Vincente's cabin.
The cemetery scene featuring the salt and burn was filmed in Queen's Park, New Westminster[1], and featured a headstone for Winifred N. Optican, a tomb visible in Greenville Cemetery where Mary's grave is located in 2.04 Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things.
