* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Or rather, "What Have I Done to God?" Amara has this reaction upon seeing how flowers in a park are dying because of the weak sunlight, finally realizing what she has wrought with what amounts to beating up her brother while caught up in a temper tantrum.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Or rather, "What Have I Done to God?" Amara has this reaction upon seeing how flowers die in a park are dying because of the weak sunlight, reaction to her touch, finally realizing what she has wrought with what amounts to beating up her brother while caught up in a temper tantrum.


* BriefAccentImitation: Dean indulges in a hilarious imitation of Rowena's Scottish accent, complete with high-pitched voice, as he recounts her instructions regarding the ghost-catching gem. Sam appears as nonplussed as the audience.



* CrazyPrepared: The British Men of Letters have been apparently watching the Winchesters extremely closely. So closely that they fully expect Sam to walk back to the bunker accompanied by an angel, and have a banishment sigil ready.



* PutOnABus: Chuck and Amara take off to the ether or somewhere to be together. It's unlikely that they'll get involved in the world's troubles again anytime soon.



* WasItReallyWorthIt: Dean doesn't use the exact words, but he clearly has this idea in mind when he asks Amara if vengeance is ''really'' what she wants, because VengeanceFeelsEmpty and deep down the thing she ''really'' wants is her brother, the very thing her revenge would cost her. Amara's reaction to seeing the effects of God dying earlier implies she'd been asking herself the same question.

* YouWouldntShootMe: Sam tells Toni that they both know she won't pull the trigger. She does, but whether she actually hit Sam or not remains to be seen.

Added DiffLines:

* IncestSubtext: Amara and Chuck. The scene in which they finally reconcile and disappear together is written almost romantically. There's also Amara's affection for Dean, which ''had'' been explicitly written and framed as romantic, turning out to be because she sees him as a ReplacementGoldfish... for her brother. There is also a basis for [[BrotherSisterIncest sibling incest with deities and Biblical figures]] and Chuck canonically had relationships with his own creations ("children").

Added DiffLines:

* SoulPower: ThePlan for killing Amara requires enough power and light to equal 10,000 exploding suns. They decide to collect souls since each one is equivalent to 100 suns each.

Added DiffLines:

* TheFunInFuneral: Before going off to blow himself up, Dean tells everyone that he wants his funeral to have an open bar, a Music/BlackSabbath cover band, and the eulogy read by Creator/GaryBusey.

Added DiffLines:

* PowerfulAndHelpless: After delivering the fatal blow to her brother in the previous episode, Amara will die along with him because the cosmic balance has been upset.

* MakeWayForTheNewVillains: At the episode's end, the British arm of the Men of Letters have come for Sam and Dean in the wake of the past eleven seasons of them fighting Lucifer, the Leviathans and the Darkness who they blame the Winchesters for releasing.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityBreakingParadox: What would happen if Chuck or Amara died. Fortunately the only thing powerful enough to kill either of them is each other. Unfortunately Amara already hit Chuck with a fatal blow that would see all of creation including herself die with him.

Added DiffLines:

* RousseauWasRight: Amara heals Chuck's injuries, helps to avert the apocalypse, and even brings Mary Winchester to life. Since she is the ultimate negating principle of the universe and arguably the reason evil exists, this goes beyond the standard HeelFaceTurn.
* SkewedPriorities: Lady Antonia makes a transatlantic flight to arrest the Winchesters while all of existence is in the process of fading out, an action that would be completely meaningless if they hadn't saved the world with zero help from her.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: The second type, as Lady Antonia insists that her servant call her "Toni" instead of "milady."

Added DiffLines:

* ClimacticMusic: Amara's HeelFaceTurn and healing of Chuck is accompanied by the sun dramatically brightening along with an awesome electric guitar solo.


* TakeAThirdOption: Instead of killing Amara or letting creation be destroyed, he convinces her to try and reconcile with God and saves the world without either having to die.

Added DiffLines:

* HumanityIsInfectious: Dean points this out to Amara that her time experiencing creation has led her to develop her own kind of humanity.
