* In [[15.05 Proverbs 17:3]], in Sam's nightmare, Dean attempts to kill the [[Lucifer]]-possessed Sam with [[the Colt]], only to have Lucifer heal the injury and burn Dean alive. This references both when Dean tried to kill Lucifer, possessing [[Nick]], in [[5.10 Abandon All Hope...]] and similarly failed, and when his 2014 self tried to kill the 2014 Lucifer with the Colt while he was possessing Sam in [[5.04 The End]]. The nightmare Lucifer even wears the same white suit from the latter instance.

In both episodes, three people are attacked at their campsite and two of them are taken before the monster moves on to the third, who in both cases survives the attack.

* In [[15.10 The Heroes' Journey]], Dean and [[Garth]] remark on Garth's claims to have killed the [[Tooth Fairy]] on his very first case. Garth insists that the Tooth Fairy deserved it. Garth is once again knocked out by a monster during a fight. However, this time he recovers in time to kill the monster and save the day. Dean tells [[Cutty]] that the Winchesters have killed [[demons]], [[angels]], [[Alphas]], and gods. The fight club promo for the Winchesters' fight uses their mug shots from [[2.19 Folsom Prison Blues]]. Garth once again quips that an enemy "got [[Garthed]]" after disposing of them as he did in [[7.18 Party On, Garth]]. Garth once again displays his tendency towards hugging people. This time, Dean proves to be more receptive.

* In [[15.11 The Gamblers]], after Sam comments that he'd originally thought the coins from [[Fortuna]]'s pool hall were hexed or cursed, Dean brings up the [[Rabbit's Foot]] from [[3.03 Bad Day at Black Rock]] which was cursed to give the owner good luck which turned sour after the object was lost.

* In [[15.11 The Gamblers]], the Winchesters refer to their past of hustling pool to make money to survive, something that hasn't been seen since [[10.17 Inside Man]]. It's also shown that, unlike many of their other skills such as lock-picking, Sam and Dean really are good at pool on their own from their years of experience without the added luck God gave to them.
 +
* [[Fortuna]]'s pool hall in [[15.11 The Gamblers]] is reminiscent of the witch [[Patrick]]'s poker games in [[5.07 The Curious Case of Dean Winchester]]. In both cases, the victims die if they lose too much, and both Fortuna and Patrick choose to play against Sam rather than take on Dean for a rematch. However, unlike Fortuna who skims luck off of each person's winnings, Patrick detests cheating, relying on intuition rather than reading minds or using magic to rig the game in his favor. Sam, who is not as skilled as Dean at pool or poker, manages to beat both of them.

* Becky's notes about [[Chuck]]'s new manuscript can be seen as a meta commentary on the episode itself. Many of her notes such as there being no classic rock and neither Sam nor Dean mentioning Castiel and a cornered Sam and Dean listening to the "villain's" monologue happen in the episode. Her claims that the story has low stakes cause Chuck to write a new dark ending, which is mirrored in the episode when he disintegrates Becky and her husband.

Detail of Becky's Supernatural merchandise
  • The name on the crypt that Sam, Dean, and Castiel take refuge in is "Carver," a reference to previous Supernatural writer and showrunner, Jeremy Carver.[5]
  • In 15.04 Atomic Monsters, we find Becky is still a Supernatural fan, writing fanfic and making miniatures. The Supernatural merchandise in Becky's house was a combination of commercial Supernatural merchandise, items made by fans, and some things made for the show. The plaid quilt and other sewn items were made by Stef, aka @arachnobite, who also made Jensen's Red Hood and Batman costumes. A carved Supernatural-themed chess set in the living room was gifted to Jared at EyeCon in September 2008 by by Sandra Echeverri (@Sanpao19).
  • Becky's notes about Chuck's new manuscript can be seen as a meta commentary on the episode itself. Many of her notes such as there being no classic rock and neither Sam nor Dean mentioning Castiel and a cornered Sam and Dean listening to the "villain's" monologue happen in the episode. Her claims that the story has low stakes cause Chuck to write a new dark ending, which is mirrored in the episode when he disintegrates Becky and her husband.
  • In 15.07 Last Call, Lee Webb quips that Dean can't just lip-sync to "Eye of the Tiger" when no one's watching. This is a reference to the Jensen Sings outtake for 4.06 Yellow Fever where Jensen Ackles lip-syncs to "Eye of the Tiger."
  • In 15.10 The Heroes' Journey, the Winchesters and Garth talk about how Sam and Dean are the heroes of the story while Garth is just a special guest star or a recurring character and not a main hero.
