- Anti Anti Christ: Sam.
- Batman Gambit: Dean pulls off a nice one. He finds Richie's body, draws a Devil's trap in the ground and pretends to be lured into a trap with the demon. It fails because Dean didn't expect her to be so powerful.
- Call Back: Like the Yellow-Eyed Demon, the demon in Casey says the Apocalypse would be the start of the beginning, not the end.
- Chekhov's Gun: Literally with the Colt making a reappearance.
- Creepy Basement: Casey kills hunters in hers.
- Dark Is Not Evil: played with. The demon Dean gets trapped with claims she just wants to carry out her life the same as anyone, and she has some valid points about the human race... but then again, she could be lying.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: The demon couple genuinely love each other.
- Famed in Story: The Winchesters, especially Sam among the demons.
- Fantastic Racism: The demon calls humans 'an inferior race'.
- Foil: Richie to Dean. Both are hedonistic, Casanova hunters. Richie isn't as well trained as Dean however and takes the job much less seriously. In short, Richie is Dean without his hidden depths.
- Foreshadowing: In the beginning, a nun is placing bibles in the pews when ominous music plays. She turns around to see the priest. The audience thinks it's only a Cat Scare especially when a man kills himself shortly after but then we find out that the priest is possessed.
- Have You Seen My God?: The demon insinuates that God is missing.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: General Hammond has turned into a douche businessman.
- Humans Are the Real Monsters: The demons attempts to convince Dean of this.
- Neck Snap: How Richie is killed.
- Not So Different
- Satan: is finally introduced, as a legend and godlike figure amongst the demons.
- Sinister Minister: Possessed by a demon.
- Together in Death: The two demons.
- Villains Never Lie: The demon claims that she is not lying because she has no need to.
- Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: Dean doesn't exactly take being liked by a demon as a compliment.
