Minutiae

The Men of Letters Chapter in Rhode Island uses a variant of the Aquarian Star with an eye at its center. It can be seen throughout the chapterhouse, and as tattoos on Diego Avila and the other Men of Letters and their legacies. The Eye recalls the Eye of Providence which is a symbol of the eye of god. It is strongly associated with Freemasons, and also features on U.S. paper currency.
The chant the Rhode Island Men of Letters use to open the portal along with the ritual that requires the grace of an archangel, the Seal of Solomon, the blood of a most holy man, and the fruit of the tree of life is "Insanidox Koth Munto, Yugoth". Yougoth chants "Insanidox Koth Munto, Glythur!" to open the portal and Opehelia chants "Panto Koth Munto!" to close it. Sam chants "Koth Munto Notox".
When Ketch brings Gabriel to the Bunker, Sam says that it can't be him because "we saw him die". However when Lucifer (apparently) killed Gabriel in 5.19 Hammer of the Gods, Sam and Dean had already left the hotel with Kali.
