Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: For the season finale and also Season 5. [[spoiler:Uriel claims Anna is worse than Ruby. By the end of the season, it turns out that both Uriel and Ruby were Moles and actually had the same endgoal and loyalty to the same entity (Lucifer), effectively putting the on the same side even if they weren't working together and didn't know each other's true motives; in contrast, Anna truly did oppose Lucifer and the Apocalypse, which would've made her Uriel's enemy even if she hadn't fallen. Also, while Ruby uses the brothers, she doesn't attack them and is dispatched quickly when her betrayal comes out; Anna tries to kill Sam and then tries to erase the entire Winchester family form history, and defeating her takes up an entire episode that ends in them having to SummonBiggerFish, making her pose a more powerful and direct threat to the brothers than Ruby did.]]

->'''Dean:''' They sliced and carved and tore me in ways that you- Until there was nothing left. And then suddenly, I would be whole again, like magic. Just so they could start in all over. And Alastair, at the end of every day, every one, he would come over and he would make me an offer to take me off the rack if I put souls on. If I started the torture. And every day I told him to stick it where the sun shines. For thirty years I told him. But then I couldn't do it anymore, Sammy. I couldn't. Then I got off that rack, God help me I got right off it, and I started ripping them apart. I lost count of how many souls. The things that I did to them.
->'''Sam:''' Dean... Dean, look you held out for thirty years. That's longer than any one would've.
->'''Dean:''' How I feel, this... inside me, I wish I couldn't feel anything, Sammy. I wish I couldn't feel a damn thing.

Added DiffLines:

* ColdBloodedTorture: Dean was torn apart every single day in Hell, only to be made whole the next morning so it could happen all over again. After thirty years, he broke, and took Alistair's offer to become the torturer instead. It's implied this is the beginning of the path to losing humanity and becoming a demon.


Added DiffLines:

** At the end of the day, every day, of being torn apart in Hell Alistair would make Dean an offer: he gets off the rack if he becomes a torturer in turn. After ''thirty years'' of unceasing torture, Dean took the deal.
