* PlotInducedStupidity: Rather than using a regular low-level demon (which the Winchesters have shown they can take on and capture with no trouble), they decide to revive Abaddon, possibly the most powerful demon still alive and who is immune to regular exorcism. This is somewhat justified by Crowley's comments that he had been keeping all his demons away from the Winchesters, on the assumption that the third trial would be something demon-related. Abaddon was simply the only demon to hand.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Crowley demonstrates why he's the personification of this trope in the series, as he not only frequently subverts or avoids the VillainBall all the time, in this episode he outsmarts others purely by breaking their genre expectations.
** He kills Tommy Collins in the opening by blowing his head up long distance, knowing that he's expecting a wendigo instead of demons.
** Sam and Dean go to protect Sarah Blake when Crowley threatens to kill her, and put up defenses for an imminent demon attack. Crowley just put a witch's hex bag somewhere in the room in advance, a skill he learned from his witch mother.
** Crowley also realizes the third trial likely involves something Hell-related and does his best to avoid giving Sam material for completing the trials.
-->'''Crowley:''' I thought of sending in a few of my bruisers, really letting them go to town. But then, well, trial one was kill a hellhound. Trial two was rescue a soul from the pit. So, from here on, I'm gonna keep everything Hell-related, demons, et cetera, away from you. Safe side and all that.
