A man on his cell phone bumps into him, and it looks like Death wouldn't have minded that, except the man rudely tells him to watch it. Death brushes his bumped arm, casts a cold look back at the man, and ''the sorry bastard kicks the bucket right on the sidewalk''. All in awesome slo-mo. His next scene in the restaurant just cements his status as pure, unleaded CreepyAwesome, as his mere presence and his polite invitation to share his pizza is able to terrify Dean Winchester, the man who has happily, snarkily and verbosely mouthed off to monsters, ghosts, demons, angels, Archangels, gods, and Satan by this point, into treating him with '''utter''' respect and reverence.

* This episode is one big CMOA for Jody, Donna, Claire, Alex, Patience, and Kaia. The women of ''Supernatural'' finally take center-stage and bring with it a moment of awesome moments, from Donna opening her pickup truck to reveal a bunch of monster-killing weapons, to Claire killing three werewolves in the opening scene, to Claire and Kaia rescuing Sam and Dean from The Bad Place, [[spoiler: even if Kaia didn't make it]], and Jody, Donna, Patience, and Alex fighting off a bunch of monsters from The Bad Place.
* We finally get a glimpse of the giant monster whose footprint we saw in the last episode. [[spoiler: It seems to be ''Supernatural'''s answer to Film/KingKong.]]

* Billie's response to Rowena's demand [[spoiler: to resurrect Crowley]] is a firm reminder that she does ''not'' do blackmail. She challenges Rowena to follow up her vow to kill Sam, knowing that she does not have the will to do it. Then Rowena throws all the magic she has at Billie in desperation. She doesn't even ''flinch''. And just to show that she has been able to maintain her calm in light of these events, Billie ends the confrontation by [[DontFearTheReaper comforting Rowena]]. Rowena proceeds to undergo a full HeelFaceTurn. [[spoiler: Truly another reason not to mess up with Death.]]
** Made even better when you realize that Crowley is a demon, so [[spoiler: he was sent to the Empty upon his death. Billie is using her wits to discourage Rowena from her pursuit, as she doesn't actually have the authority to resurrect Crowley. Yet she still succeeds]].
