Added DiffLines:

* DiscOneFinalBoss: Michael, the Assumed BigBad of the season is killed off with still a third of the season to go.


* CallBack: Rowena does not fear Michael's death threat, recalling Billie's notebook that promises her final death would be at the hands of Sam, as revealed in "[[Recap/SupernaturalS13E19Funeralia Funeralia]]".

* CallBack: Rowena does not fear Michael's death threat, recalling Billie's notebook that promises her final death would be at the hands of Sam, as revealed in "[[Recap/SupernaturalS13E19Funeralia Funeralia]]". Indeed, she lives to the end of the episode; instead of directly killing Michael in Rowena's body (the usual way for disposing of angels/demons), Jack goes to the trouble of exorcising him from Rowena first, therefore sparing her life.


* AchillesHeel: Gorgons cannot detect angels or something similar to them, which is why Noah's message does not mention Castiel or Jack.



* CallBack: Rowena does not fear Michael's death threat, recalling Billie's notebook that promises her final death would be at the hands of Sam, as revealed in "[[Recap/SupernaturalS13E19Funeralia Funeralia]]".



* ExactWords: As it turns out, all the angels need for them to be invited into their vessels is a show of affirmation. It doesn't have to be a literal "yes". Rowena merely nods after being offered to host Michael and it is sufficient for her to do so.
* GenderBender: Michael again possesses a woman, this time Rowena.



* {{Medusa}}: Naturally, Rowena mentions the world's most famous gorgon while explaining to the boys about them.



* {{Seers}}: Eating eyeballs gives Noah the power to see the future. The fact that he's still blocked from seeing angels gives Team Free Will an opening.

!Ouroboros

Written by: Steve Yockey

Directed by: Amyn Kaderali

Air date: March 7, 2019

The Winchesters, Castiel, and Jack turn to Rowena for help with their current case, a flesh-eating killer who stays ahead of them at every turn. But there are longer-term problems. Dean is barely keeping it together with the strain of Michael in his head, and Jack continues to burn away his soul.

! Tropes
* AndIMustScream: Noah paralyzes his victims with a venom that leaves them unable to speak, or to move anything but their eyes.
* {{Animorphism}}: As part of their plan to get antivenom from a vet's office, Rowena turns Jack into a dog.
* BodySurf: Michael vacates Dean's body, and the mind where he was imprisoned, to take Rowena as his vessel.
* CharacterDeath:
** Michael kills most of the hunters in the bunker, including Maggie, immediately breaking a promise he made to Rowena.
** Michael himself is dead by the end of the episode, if Jack is to be believed.
* DepravedBisexual: All of Noah's victims in this episode are men, and as shown in the case of a closeted trucker, his method of prey is highly sexualized. However, he says that he feeds on women as well, but they've gotten more cautious over the years.
* HalfwayPlotSwitch: The gorgon case is wrapped up around the episode's midpoint. After that the main threat is from Michael.
* OffWithHisHead: Noah's fate, as that's the only way to take down a gorgon.
* {{Seers}}: Eating eyeballs gives Noah the power to see the future. The fact that he's still blocked from seeing angels gives Team Free Will an opening.
