* FutureBadass: The Dean we know and love may be already be quite {{Badass}}, but his future self in "The End" takes it to a whole new level. He's also a total [[JerkAss douchebag]].

** At the start, Sam was a whiny, [[{{Wangst}} wangsty]], [[DeathSeeker death-seeking]], self-absorbed {{Jerkass}} who was all about IJustWantToBeNormal; now he's a {{Badass}} DeadpanSnarker who has an awesome bitch-face and a [[BewareTheNiceOnes huge dark side that comes out when you even think about hurting his brother]]. Even though half of the time he's the one hurting his brother. Physically or emotionally.
** Dean was originally just a [[{{Badass}} tough guy]] who never talked about his feelings and was a [[ReallyGetsAround womanizing]], boorish bit of [[DeadpanSnarker comic relief]], but now, as well as all that, he's a LoveMartyr for his family, the biggest MartyrWithoutACause on the show and with so little self-worth he's been DrivenToSuicide more times than you can count, and now '''he''' [[IJustWantToBeNormal is having doubts about continuing hunting]].

Added DiffLines:

*** This episode also features a few inconsistencies with demons. The episode states that demons usually possess someone with a weakness, like an addiction or some sort of emotional distress. At the beginning of the episode, this is demonstrated when a demon possesses a nervous flyer. Sam even states that simply Dean panicking leaves him wide open to demonic possession. Later in the series, it is shown that demons can possess anyone regardless of strength or willpower, even [[spoiler:John Winchester]], for example.
** The first season was also inconsistent as a whole with how demons possessed humans. The demon in episode 4 enters his victims through the eyes, while the season finale shows a human standing become spontaneously possessed, as evidenced by the eyes suddenly turning black. As he is confronted by a fireman, the demon brushes by the fireman and seems to cause him to spontaneously become possessed as well. For the rest of the series, as early as the first episode of Season 2, demons only enter their targets through the mouth as a thick cloud of smoke.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness:
** The first season's finale did not start with the recap having Kansas' "Carry On Wayward Son" as the background music; the episode prior to the first season finale, "Salvation", had it over the "The Road So Far" segment at the start of that episode, and the Netflix version replaces it with another song. Almost every season finale from Season 2 on will have "Carry On Wayward Son" over the recap.
** The first demon seen in the series in the fourth episode has his voice be deeper and more demonic. Every demon after him speaks with the voice of the human they possess.

* {{Elseworld}}: The series has used this trope several times, including the episodes "What Is And What Should Never Be" (the Winchesters never became monster hunters), "It's A Terrible Life" (Sam and Dean working in an office building), "The End" (as a potential BadFuture where Hell triumphed in the Apocalypse), "The French Mistake" (the Winchesters wind up in [[RealWorldEpisode an alternate universe where they're a bunch of actors]]) "My Heart Will Go On" (mostly the same as the regular world, only the Titanic disaster being averted by time travel ultimately affects the lives of several main characters). In nearly all of these episodes the Winchester brothers must find a way to return to their reality and are or become aware they are not in their own world.
