Added DiffLines:

* DaylightHorror: The scene with the Darkness emerging from the ground, freed from [[SealedEvilInACan its captivity]], happens on an extremely sunny day, in the middle of a previously peaceful field of crops.

Added DiffLines:

* PrisonDimension: Death says he can't kill Dean or remove the Mark, because doing either one will release the Darkness. Instead he offers to send Dean to one of these, where he won't be able to hurt anyone once the Mark inevitably takes over. His only condition is that Dean kill Sam, because he knows damn well that as long as Sam is alive, he won't rest until he finds a way to bring Dean back.


* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The reason that Death wants Dean to kill Sam is because he knows as long as the latter is alive he will never stop trying to find a way to free Dean from the Mark.

* CompleteImmortality: It's revealed this episode that the Mark is so dangerous that not even '''Death''' (who once casually mentioned he would some day reap God) is willing to kill its host (because Death doesn't want to unleash the Darkness). The only way for the host to rid themselves of this is to either transfer the Mark to someone else, like Cain did to Dean, or destroy the Mark entirely (which if you read the rest of the tropes on this page [[{{Understatement}} is a very bad idea]]).

* HopeSpot: After the spell is used to cure Dean of the Mark it initially looks like their will be no negative consequences and the brothers can leave. However then lighting starts striking the ground causing massive holes to appear and then [[OhCrap black smoke begins billowing out and gathering together in a clearing...]]
* KillTheGod: Dean seemingly does this to '''Death''' using his own scythe to turn him into dust. Whether this sticks or not remains to be seen.

* TrailersAlwaysLie: The trailer for this episode makes it seem that the condition Death wants Dean to meet before he will cure the Mark is to take over as the new Death. In the episode however Death tells Dean he can't kill him and won't destroy the Mark because doing so would release [[UltimateEvil The Darkness]] into the world. The condition that he want's Dean to complete instead is to kill Sam so the latter won't be able to destroy the Mark.
* UltimateEvil: It's revealed that The Darkness was the original source of evil in the Universe, not only the Primordial force of nature that controlled everything before God and his angels, but also the one [[TheCorruption responsible for turning Lucifer evil.]]
