pt one: Demon!John

Now, The Demon possessed John, which is so many kinds of ironic I can’t even count them.

I think it would have been a more unpredictable and better choice to possess Dean instead. It would have forced John to really choose between vengeance and his child ... especially the child who worships at his feet. I would have loved to see their answer to this.

But like you, I totally loved what they did with Demon!John, too. How much pain he could inflict in John's meat suit was impressively impressive. And fun to watch, too.

Was it that pain or John’s love that broke the hold of The Demon, if only for a few seconds?

I have this crack theory that John could have broken the hold earlier, but didn't because he needed Sam to be willing to kill the Demon, which he would be if the Demon had offed (or appeared to off, or appeared to be in imminent danger of offing) Dean. But I think that's mostly just me being a pessimist.

I tend to go with the notion that, given the way the terminal damage fractured out from the point of impact when John whacked hip!vampire, I tend to think, while the mystical bullet in his leg did only minimal biological damage to John, it likely did far more significant paranormal damage to the Demon, that damage fracturingg out from the point of impact enough that it 1) compromised its ability to maintain control over the Winchesters, especially with all 3 of them fighting him, and Sam assumably doing it telekinetically and 2) required that he vacate the meat suit in order to regroup and regenerate.
