A siren casts a spell on men in a small Iowa town, driving them to kill their wives.
In the opening scene, the clock on the wall has a second hand but it never moves.
While there is a Bedford, Iowa, it doesn't have a major riverfront facility like the one seen at the end, or the huge bridge, or the multi-story buildings. (The bridge is the Skybridge, in Vancouver.)
In the episode we see the boys interview the husband and he states that if the judge doesn't give him the death penalty, he'll "do it" himself. Yet as a resident of Iowa he would have known that there was no way that would happen since Iowa doesn't have the death penalty. The worst penalty he would have gotten would have been life without parole.
Cara doesn't notice that she suddenly has a vase of Mediterranean hyacinths in her office. Which means they were already there. However, that means the siren's whole plan to trick Dean rests on the doctor having the one thing in her office that would be a very specific clue to its identity.
Cara's office is in the middle of a hospital, and has glass walls. But when she and Sam have sex, neither of them closes the Venetian blinds.
Sam: (about the siren) It's more of a beautiful creatures that prey on men, and entice them with their siren song.
Dean: Let me guess, Welcome to the Jungle. No, no, wait. Warrant's Cherry Pie.
Dean: Did you sleep with her?
Dean: Holy crap, you did. Middle of Basic Instinct and you bang Sharon Stone. Sam, you could be under her spell right now.
Sam: Dude, I'm not under her spell.
Dean: Unbelievable, man, I just don't get it.
Sam: No, say it.
Dean: Nah, it's just first it's Madison and then Ruby and now Cara. It's like what is it with you and bangin' monsters?
Nick: Dean's all mine.
Sam: You poisoned him
Nick: Nah I gave him what he needed. And it wasn't some bitch in a G-string. It was you. A little brother that looked up to him. That he could trust. And now he loves me, he'd do anything for me.
Sam: What do you think? She infects them during sex?
Dean: Supernatural STD.
Dean: You're up early. What're you doing?
Sam: Nothing. I was in the can.
Sam: Yeah. Want me to draw you a picture?
Dean: No, I'll pass.
Mr. Benson: Her name was... Jasmine.
Sam: She was a stripper?
Dean: Dude, her name was Jasmine.
Dean: (to Sam) Dude, you totally c-blocked me.
Sam: You seem pretty cheery.
Dean: Strippers, Sammy. Strippers! We are on an actual case involving strippers. Finally!
Sam: I just talked to Bobby. We officially have a theory.
Dean: What's that?
Dean: Like Greek myth sirens? The Odyssey? (Sam stares) Hey, I read.
Dean: What the hell am I supposed to do with him?
Sam: Just take him to the strip club, keep an eye out for the siren. Come on, Dean. Just, just focus on the naked girls. You'll forget he's even there.
Dean: I'm not doing this for you, I'm doing it for the girls.
Dean: You know, for a Fed you're not a total dick.
Nick: Aren't we both Feds?
Dean: Yeah, I know, I just... not a lot of Feds as cool as us, huh?
Cara: (to Sam) Screw it. Have fun, no regrets, and live life like there's no tomorrow. For instance, I have been thinking about you all night. Well, parts of you.

Injoke: All of the siren's aliases are Disney heroines: Jasmine (Aladdin), Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Ariel (The Little Mermaid), and Belle (Beauty and the Beast).
Genevieve Cortese is credited but only her voice is heard.
Music: Thunder Kiss '65 (White Zombie)
Dean: Agents Stiles and Murdoch.
This alludes to the show Route 66, wherein two guys, Todd Stiles and Buzz Murdoch, drive around the country in a Corvette doing odd jobs.
Dean: Sounds like Ozzie and Harriet.
Referencing the ABC series The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet (1952-1966) starring real-life couple Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, and their sons David and Ricky. The series was spun off from the original radio program which ran from 1944-1954. The show dealt with the trials and tribulations of a "typical" American family of the era.
Sam: More like The Shining.
Referencing the 1977 novel by Stephen King and subsequent movie/miniseries versions in 1980 and 1997. King's novel takes place at the haunted Overlook Hotel in Colorado, where writer Jack Torrance slowly goes insane as the ghosts influence him and tries to kill his wife Wendy. The "shining" refers to certain individuals having psychic abilities, such as telepathy and premonitions of danger.
Sam: That makes them go all Manchurian Candidate.
Referencing the 1959 novel by Richard Condon and the subsequent 1962 and 2004 movies. The original story features the Communists brainwashing a soldier to become a programmed assassin when given the trigger item. The 2004 movie replaced the Communists with a private corporation.
Sam: Mike Keyser.
Referencing the 1995 movie The Usual Suspects directed by Bryan Singer. Keyser Söze is an enigmatic crime boss famed for his ruthlessness but rarely seen and his face is unknown to the authorities.
Dean: Middle of Basic Instinct and you're banging Sharon Stone.
Referencing the 1992 movie directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Sharon Stone as a writer who seduces the police detective (Michael Douglas) involved in the murder of a former rock star that Stone's character was involved with.
Nick: It's Dr. Quinn.
Referencing the 1993-1998 CBS series starring Jane Seymour as Dr. Michaela Quinn, a frontier doctor in the 1860s and 70s serving the town of Colorado Springs.
