* c'mon Sam, you really think Dean can't have intimate knowledge of a tv show? after all, it isn't like you know you're fictional. :)
* so, has Gabriel been the Trickster for the entire three episodes that had the Trickster?
* and if the Trickster is Gabriel, that doesn't that mean that Michael and Lucifer have the same reality-altering power? (more than just the "vanish the lungs" stuff that Mordechai can do)
...or were those powers part of the Witness Protection which Gabriel mentioned?
* Sam had an interesting idea, though - ask gods and demi-gods for help. let's hope you didn't burn all the bridges by killing that Balkan forest god the other week.
