It is the second time the song Carry on My Wayward Son by Kansas is used in the show. It was first used in "Salvation" (season 1 episode 21) over the opening sequence showing what previously happened during the first season. The song is used again in the opening sequence of this episode showing what previously happened during the first two seasons.
Trivia: Dean said "We've got work to do" as he closed the trunk of the Impala. Sam said the same thing as he shut the Impala's trunk at the end of the pilot episode. Not to mention that, in the pilot episode, Sam was standing on the left and Dean was standing on the right (and Sam was the one who dropped the gun into the trunk and closed it); in the season finale of this season, the brothers were standing on opposite sides and Dean was the one who dropped the gun into the trunk and closed it.
At the diner, Dean looks out the back door and it's pouring rain out. However, when he goes out the front door a few seconds later, the rain has slowed to a very light drizzle.
At the very start, when Sam wakes up in the ghost town, there is a visible church-wouldn't it be sensible to automatically seek refuge there?
At the start of the episode, Dean is waiting in the car for Sam when the Yellow-Eyed Demon comes and gets Sam. The radio starts to flutter in and out which in countless past episodes has been a sign that there is a supernatural presence close. Why would he tap on the radio trying fix it?
Dean uses a sterling silver dinner knife when trying to kill the Djinn. Most sterling silver dinner knives have steel blades, since silver is a soft metal and isn't suitable for significant cutting use.
The Djinn gives its victims what it wants to be happy. Fantasy-Mary says that "It's everything you wanted." Also, the "fantasy" responds to Dean as his reactions change, which is why everyone appears to him at the end. However, Fantasy-Sam is rather cold and disinterested toward Dean's overtures of friendship, despite the fact that Dean clearly wants to be friends with him. If the fantasy is "everything he wants" to keep him enraptured, Sam should react the way Dean wants him to from the start. Everything else in the fantasy reacts the way Dean wants it to, so fantasy-Sam not reacting the way Dean wants him to doesn't make sense.
"Djinn" is misspelled "Jinn" in the close-captioning throughout the episode. The book Sam reads uses the word "Djinn" so clearly that was intended as the correct spelling.
Trivia: Carmen is the model in the El Sol beer ad that Dean looks at in the magazine at the end. El Sol was the beer the fantasy Carmen offered him earlier.
There are several "goofs" that occur in Dean's new life which may be Goofs, or may be his subconscious efforts to indicate something is wrong. They include
1) When Dean watches the TV in the middle of the night the KJLT timestamp says it's 9 a.m. central;
2) the newspaper headline about the one-year anniversary of the airplane crash says it's December 5, 2005, but Dean is seen earlier mowing the yard; and
3) the lawnmower Dean uses to mow the lawn has no blades.
4) When Dean wakes up in his mother's house we get to see photographs of their family. Young Dean in the photographs does not look anything like the kid that played him in other episodes.
Trivia: In Dean's fantasy, the Impala has a new Kansas license plate number: RMD 5H2
During the scene at the cemetery, twice you can hear Dean talking but his mouth isn't moving.
Trivia: Dean's address in his fantasy is #53 Barker Ave, Lawrence, KS, 66044.
Trivia: During Dean's fantasy, he is wearing a silver necklace, rather than the amulet he normally wears.
At 23:40 when Sam sprinkles the lighter fluid onto the blood stain, there isn't much liquid. Yet when he lights it, it lights as if it were soaked in the fluid.
At 20:16 Dean is piling up the cigarettes in front of himself. Yet when the shot is from behind him, his hands are gone, and the pile of cigarettes is in a different location.
When Sam and Dean are in the line with all the new prisoners to get checked if they have any metal on them, the camera goes past a man in the line that we see earlier who is already in the prison. At the very beginning of the episode, when we see the outside of Green River County Detention Center, the man is just standing around outside with all the other prisoners already inside.
The ghost's kill pattern doesn't seem to make sense. Over the course of the three days or so the Winchesters are in prison, it kills or tries to kill three people. So it kills roughly one person a day. However, it was in the prison for three months before the brothers arrive. That would mean it killed roughly 90 people, but no mention is made of that number of deaths. However, if it didn't stick to the pattern we see... why not? There's no explanation for why it suddenly escalates its murder rate after the brothers arrive.
The scene where the guard tells the prisoner to turn off his light is not even close to being a real situation. Not even in your local jail, state prison, or federal penitentiary are prisoners even allowed to near anything that could be used as a weapon, like electricity.
Sam says that the electrician, Billy Beaird, died in the giant fan. The brothers confirm that Beaird was cremated, but later Walter summons his spirit repeatedly to kill first Jay and then Marty.
