** The lawyer's name, Anthony Giles, could be an amalgam of Anthony Head and his character Rupert Giles on "Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer", one of many nods to the earlier supernatural CW show.

Sam is picked up by the police as well. While talking to his lawyer, Dean realizes that the repeated phrase is not a person's name, but the name of a nearby street, Ashland. He manages to pass this information and a signal to escape to Sam in a note through their lawyer. Dean then agrees to confess and starts telling [[{{Masquerade}} the truth]] about how he believes the murders were committed by a vengeful spirit. This angers the lead detective, Peter Sheridan, but his partner, Detective Diana Ballard, has reason to believe Dean when the ghost appears to her. Dean advises Detective Ballard that if she doesn't want to die like the other victims, she needs to find Sam, and tells her how.
