Later, he meets up with Crowley and they have drinks and talk about how they have changed, and what family means. Tagged: Game of Thronesshower Winmail Dat öffnen AndroidComplicatedHell. They find another soulless person, Goldie, who has just been arrested, and set up a devil's trap in her jail cell. Back in the Bunker, they agree to let Metatron in on their plan, as his knowledge may be useful.
Although initially disbelieving, Dean is convinced of the relation with pictures. Dean is also against Sam using the teachings of their father on Adam after he is attacked by monsters.
At the end, it is revealed that it was a ghoul that wanted revenge on John for a previous hunt and impersonating Adam who was killed but Dean saved Sam and the brothers burned Adam's body.
Eventually, Dean learns that the angels the want the Apocalypse to start and that if one of the Demon's Special Children, of whom Sam is the only one left, kill Lilith, Lucifer will be free.
Castiel helps Dean escape the angels, as Dean kills Ruby who was a spy for Lilith but arrives moments too late to stop Lucifer from breaking free.
After Lucifer is freed, Dean and Sam are teleported onto an airplane by an unknown force God. Later learning of his role as the vessel for the Archangel Michael and Sam's role as Lucifer's vessel, the brothers meet the King of Crossroads Crowley and fight against the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to defeat Lucifer.
On their search to find a way to defeat Lucifer, the brothers attempt to use the Colt and look for God , but it is revealed that the Colt cannot kill Lucifer and God does not care about the Apocalypse.
Dean lets Sam kill Brady after getting the information they need. Learning from Death how to trap Lucifer, Dean eventually lets Sam become the devil's vessel, but his strong bond with Dean helps him fall into Lucifer's Cage with Michael, who is using the boys' younger brother Adam as a vessel.
Quitting hunting and moving in with an ex-one-night-stand, Lisa, Dean begins to move into a normal life but is thrust back into hunting when attacked by a Djinn and mysteriously saved by Sam.
Shocked to learn of his brother and maternal grandfather's resurrections, Dean is placed even more on edge when Sam acts cold, ruthlessly and lets Dean get temporarily turned into a vampire.
This is mostly shocking because out of the brothers, Sam has always been the gentler of the two.
Later learning from Castiel that Sam is lacking a soul, Dean sets out to fix his brother. Getting Sam's soul back, from Lucifer's cage, through Death, the brothers begin to unravel a conspiracy involving Crowley and Castiel.
Defeating Eve, the mother of all monsters, Dean cuts ties with Lisa and learns Castiel to have taken Purgatory's souls to become the most powerful angel alive.
Requesting Death's help, Dean is unable to get Castiel to return the souls of Purgatory in time and the Leviathans break free and begin an effort to take over the Earth.
After their father figure Bobby is killed by Dick Roman, the Leviathan leader, they gain an ally through Kevin Tran , a new prophet. With the Word of God, Dean and Castiel kill Roman but are themselves killed in the subsequent explosion and dragged to Purgatory.
Surviving a full year in Purgatory with the aid of the vampire Benny after being abandoned by Castiel, Dean and Benny eventually escape.
Dean is angered to learn that Sam did not even search for him. Reuniting with Kevin, they find another Word of God that details trials to close the gates of Hell.
Dean aids Sam in completing the trials, and along the way they encounter the rogue angel Metatron and the Knight of Hell Abaddon.
During this time the brothers are also given the Men of Letters bunker as a headquarters, by their paternal grandfather.
Dean is horrified to learn Castiel was programmed by the angel Naomi to try to kill him. Capturing Crowley, Dean stops Sam from completing the trials when he learns it will kill his brother.
When they begin to head to the hospital, Sam collapses just as the angels begin to fall down to Earth. Praying for help, Dean learns Metatron fooled Castiel and stole his grace leaving him human and causing the fall.
Aided by an angel named Ezekiel, Dean allows him to possess Sam if it means saving his brother. With Ezekiel in Sam, however, Dean is unable to get any help from Castiel and begins to try to find a way to handle Abaddon.
Joining up with Metatron, Ezekiel reveals himself to actually be the angel Gadreel and overpowers Dean, preventing him from saving Kevin. Turning to Crowley for help, Dean manages to purge Gadreel from Sam at the cost of their relationship.
Growing desperate to defeat Abaddon, Crowley manipulates Dean into accepting the Mark of Cain , from Dean's ancestor Cain, and aids him in locating the First Blade.
Mending his bond with Sam, Dean kills Abaddon and nearly slaughters Gadreel. When finally confronting Metatron, Dean is fatally stabbed and once again dies.
His body brought back to the bunker, Dean's reawakens a demon and leaves with Crowley. Enjoying his time as a demon and killing several of Abaddon's loyalists, Dean eventually kills an man called Lester Morris and uses his newfound demon powers to confirm what Crowley told him about Sam.
Eventually confronting his brother, Dean is pulled into a fight by a soldier named Cole, allowing Sam to use holy water to imprison his brother.
Using the demon cure process to try to turn his brother back, Sam lets his guard down and Dean escapes.
With the help of Castiel, however, Dean is cured, but still remains an enhanced human with the Mark of Cain.
After eventually growing more and more powerful while losing control, Dean learns from Cain, before killing his ancestor, that there is no viable cure.
Death later confirms this by revealing that removing the Mark would unleash the Darkness and offers to remove Dean from society on the condition that he kill Sam.
Although he initially agrees, Dean relents and kills Death instead. However, due to Sam's earlier machinations, the Mark is removed and the Darkness is unleashed regardless.
With the Darkness unleashed, Dean and Sam set out to try to find the Darkness, but are shaken to learn that the entity they are hunting is essentially God's sister, who was 'sacrificed' so that he could create the world.
Manifesting as a woman who comes to call herself Amara, Dean finds himself unable to kill her due to a twisted attraction, but matters become even more complicated when Castiel consents to act the vessel for Lucifer when he becomes convinced that only an archangel has any chance against Amara.
This strategy fails- speculated to be due to Lucifer's status as a fallen archangel- but the Winchesters are eventually contacted by the true God, now revealed to be Chuck Surely, the author who wrote the Winchester Gospels, who is able to make peace with Amara and depart.

Dean begins to train Sam to fight demons alone once he is gone. In the course of viewing Dean's dreams, it becomes clear that Dean believes that Sam was their father's favorite, but only thought of Dean as a tool.
Dean encounters a future, demonic version of himself in a nightmare, which shocks him into starting to fight for his life and to realize he is not worthless.
After waking up, Dean admits to Sam that he doesn't want to die. Meanwhile, Bela steals the Colt, meaning they won't have it to fight with when the hellhounds come for Dean.
On each new day, Dean dies a different way despite Sam's frantic efforts to save him. Sam realizes that the culprit is the Trickster , a villain from season two.
It finally becomes Wednesday, but this time, Dean dies and doesn't come back. Sam spends months trying to hunt down the Trickster, who reveals that he's been trying to get Sam to understand that he and Dean can't keep making sacrifices for each other, and that Dean is going to die no matter what Sam does.
The Trickster then sends Sam back to Wednesday, despite Sam failing to learn the Trickster's lesson. He is warned by Ruby that he might not make it back from Hell.
While Sam and Dean are in jail, a host of demons comes to kill them. Ruby comes to help them, but is furious to learn they have lost the Colt.
She says that she knows of a spell that will destroy all the demons nearby, including herself, and that she is willing to die in order to help Sam.
However, they will need the heart of a virgin. Sam and the virgin, Nancy , agree to the plan, but Dean refuses to let her die.
Dean's plan to exorcise the demons works, but one demon manages to escape and tells Lilith who — taking the form of a little girl, blows the police station up, killing everyone inside.
Lilith, it turns out, wants to kill Sam, as she sees him as a rival. According to Azazel's plan, Sam was supposed to lead the demon army, and Ruby was ready to follow Sam.
Now, Lilith has become their main enemy. Dean continues to search for a means to save himself from his fate, but ultimately is told by Ruby that there is no way to get him out of his deal.
Shortly before Dean's contract comes due, he learns from Bela that Lilith, the demon pursuing Sam, holds his contract.
As the brothers search for Lilith with Bobby's help, Dean begins suffering nightmares and hallucinations of his hellish fate. When Lilith is located, the three head to New Harmony, Indiana, and Dean discovers that he now has the ability to see the faces of demons underneath their human hosts.
As Dean and Sam confront Lilith and her demon forces in a last-ditch effort to protect Sam and save Dean's soul, Ruby appears and the three are chased into a room by a hellhound that has come for Dean.
Dean quickly recognizes that Ruby's human host is now possessed by Lilith , not Ruby, but it's too late. The hellhound mauls and kills Dean in a gruesome fashion.
Lilith flees, leaving Sam alone with Dean's mutilated corpse. In the last scene of the season, Dean is shown in Hell , suspended in a void by seemingly endless chains and hooks through his flesh, crying out in agony for Sam's help and yelling Sam's name.
The fourth season premiere, 4. Dean calls Sam, but finds his number disconnected. He calls Bobby, who hangs up on him, so he hot-wires a parked car and goes to Bobby 's house.
After proving that Dean is really back, he and Bobby track down Sam in a town right near where Dean was buried — he's in a hotel with a girl, but he claims he did nothing to bring Dean back; he's in town because he is searching for a demon.
The girl acts puzzled by all of this and leaves, while Dean tells Sam he remembers nothing from Hell. The Winchesters track down whatever force ripped Dean from Hell.
By the end of the episode, it is revealed that an angel named Castiel pulled Dean from Hell on God 's command; Castiel tells Dean that God has work for him.
The girl in Sam's room, it turns out, is Ruby , in a new body, and Sam had lied to Dean when he told him that he didn't know where Ruby was and that he wasn't using his demonic powers.
Dean, in turn, was lying to Sam about Hell; in 4. Later, in 4. There, he meets his father and mother, as well as his grandparents, and learns of a connection between Azazel and Mary , which explains why Mary seemed to recognize the demon hovering over Sam's crib as seen in 2.
A causality loop is revealed in that the time-traveling Dean, by trying to stop Azazel in the past and change his future, actually made the demon aware of his family in the first place, setting in motion the events leading to the death of his parents, the corruption of his brother, and the life he tried to change, therefore setting up a predestination paradox.
However, it is implied by Castiel that the events would have happened anyway without him being there as they were already destined. Upon returning to the present, Dean is informed by Castiel that Sam is "going down a very dark road," and that if Dean doesn't stop him, the angels will.
Dean follows Castiel's directions and encounters Sam using his powers to exorcise a demon , also learning of Ruby 's return.
He conveys the warning of the angels. After he and Sam stop a rugaru in Missouri, Sam decides to stop using his powers, which seems to satisfy Dean.
During that time, he was put on the rack and "cut, carved, and torn" apart until there was nothing left of him, only to be made whole again just so the demons could start over on him.
Dean reveals that, at the end of every day, the demon Alastair would offer to take him off the rack if Dean would put souls on it and torture them.
Dean resisted for thirty years, then gave in and spent ten years torturing people in Hell to escape being tortured himself.
In this episode, we learned that Dean was as promiscuous as ever when he was younger. The girl he was currently dating told him that he acted cool when, in reality, he was a little boy who played with people's feelings to make himself feel better.
Dean, clearly stung, from then on hated the school. She awakens his memories of their previous encounter with a kiss.
Dean confesses that there has been a "hole" in him since that time, and realizes that it is related to her. Soon after she is taken by Alastair in his quest to break another seal , that involved killing reapers.
The boys ask Pamela Barnes to help them spirit walk and leave their bodies so that they may find the kidnapped reapers.
Once they have, they are captured, but Sam is able to break them out and Tessa is able to continue on reaping souls.
However before Dean is able to return to his body, Alastair corners him, but he is captured by the angels and Castiel informs Dean that they have won this seal.
As he awakes in his body, Pamela is dying from her injuries she obtained during a fight with a demon, while the boys were "out". In the next episode 4.
Dean refuses at first but eventually agrees. However, he only succeeds in getting Alastair to reveal that Dean was the first seal to break, by virtue of giving in and torturing souls in Hell.
As he breaks, so shall it break. Alastair nearly kills Dean and then comes close to sending Castiel back to Heaven, but Sam, having grown stronger, arrives, and uses his powers to torture Alastair in to revealing he did not know who was killing the angels.
Sam killed him shortly after. As Dean recovers in the hospital, Castiel informs him about Uriel's betrayal.
Uriel had been killing angels who did not join his cause: to free the angels' "brother" Lucifer from hell, which would start the end of days and destroy humanity whom they despise for being forced to "bow down" to and they believe is the reason God no longer seems to be concerned with them.
He also confirms Alastair's claim that Dean was the first seal, but adds that because of this Dean is the only man capable of averting the Apocalypse.
However, Dean does not believe he is up to such a task, telling Castiel to find someone else as tears run down his face.
To put Dean back on the right path, Zachariah , Castiel's superior, rewrites Dean and Sam's memories to remove their knowledge of supernatural creatures, making them believe they're average people working regular jobs.
He then drops them in a haunted building. The brothers proceed to defeat the spirit that's haunting the building as Dean's boss, Zachariah restores Dean's memories to show him that hunting is in his blood, not simply something he was brought into by his father, and that he has an opportunity to affect the world in ways most humans will never be able to.
This renews Dean's resolve. Later in the Impala , Sam is waiting for Dean's rebuke. Sam tells him to get over it and Dean yells at him for drinking demon blood, before Sam gets a request from Bobby to head to his house.
Once there, Dean and Bobby trick Sam and lock him in the demon-proof panic room for his own safety as he detoxes. While Sam is going through painful withdrawal symptoms from the demon blood, Dean asks Castiel for help.
He takes an oath to serve God and the angels if it would mean that Sam wouldn't have to kill Lilith, to which Castiel says "if that gives you comfort".
Sam escapes the panic room after Castiel releases him, and Dean tracks him down to a hotel, despite Sam's efforts to shake him. They argue whether or not Ruby is corrupting him, if he is supposed to stop the apocalypse, and if Sam is turning into a monster.
The argument leads to a fight that Sam wins. Dean yells at Sam by saying, "If you walk out that door, don't you ever come back," after which Sam leaves the room.
The angels take Dean to a "safe" room and Zachariah explains that they are preparing for the Apocalypse and will allow the final seal to be broken.
They want Sam to kill Lilith as her death will break the final seal holding Lucifer, after which Dean will kill Lucifer and bring paradise on Earth.
Dean is shocked and horrified that they would allow the Apocalypse. He asks Castiel for help, together they escape and meet Chuck to see where the final seal will be broken.
As Castiel holds back the archangel , he sends Dean to stop Sam from killing Lilith. Ruby shuts the door on Dean as Sam kills Lilith.
After the final seal is broken, Sam finds out Ruby has been working with Lilith since the get-go and manipulating him to kill Lilith to break the final seal to release Lucifer.
Dean then enters the room and approaches Ruby. Ruby says "It's too late," to which Dean replies "I don't care," and stabs Ruby with her own knife with Sam's help.
A portal opens for Lucifer while Dean and Sam can only watch. The fifth season begins right where season four ends with the portal opening.
As Lucifer escapes the brothers are teleported into an airplane by an unknown force. Dean is told by Zachariah that he is the "Sword of Michael ," which means the archangel Michael will use his body as a vessel to lead the forces of Heaven , but Dean must consent to this.
Dean refuses and Castiel saves him when Zachariah tries to force Dean to agree by harming him and Sam. Dean and Sam fight the Horseman War in a town where the people think that their neighbors are demons.
Dean worries that Sam cannot control his urge to drink demon blood and the brothers agree to go their separate ways because Sam is a liability with his demon blood lust.
Castiel finds Dean and they capture the archangel Raphael to ask the location of God. In the 5. Dean finds out that Sam let Lucifer into his body, and this was the reason the world was in such disarray.
Later, the future Dean is killed by Lucifer, while in Sam's body. After being told by his future self to accept Michael into his body.
Dean is transported back to his own time, where he comes face to face with Zachariah. He refuses to become Michael's vessel.
In the end of the episode the brothers meet back up again, and decide that they should stay together, to "Keep each other human.
When a despondent Castiel returns Dean's amulet to him, deeming it worthless, Dean discards the amulet into the waste bin. Dean is extremely reluctant at first but then realizes that Sam is a lot stronger than he gives him credit for and he allows Sam to make this decision himself.
However, Dean has yet to give up on his brother and chases him down to Stull Cemetery to try and talk with Sam. An annoyed Lucifer severely beats him however Dean continues to call out to his brother, eventually causing Sam to regain control enough to pull both himself and Michael into Lucifer's Cage.
With the Apocalypse avoided and both Lucifer and Sam locked away in Hell , a distraught Dean sets about fulfilling the last promise he made to Sam: to live a normal, safe life with Lisa Braeden and to not find a way of bringing Sam back.
Lisa comforts Dean and the they seem to have a try at being a normal family, even sitting down to a family dinner, unaware that outside the house, staring in through the window at them, is Sam.
In the first half of the season, Dean is in many ways the center of the action because Sam is soulless. Dean has been living with Lisa and Ben Braeden for a year.
He works construction and drives a pick-up truck , having stored the Impala in the garage under a tarp. He embraces domestic life, and when asked about his past, Dean says on one occasion that he was in "pest control.
When djinn track him down and poison him in 6. Dean is shocked to see his brother; he is both puzzled and hurt to learn that Sam has been back almost a year.
Sam has been hunting with their Campbell family members, in particular their resurrected grandfather Samuel Campbell. Dean struggles with balancing his relationship with Lisa and Ben against the need to help his resurrected brother and to hunt.
When Sam approaches Dean for help with a shapeshifter infant in 6. He proves to be a help with the baby, knowing how to put on diapers and get him to sleep.
When he returns, Lisa encourages him to return to hunting full time. Dean does, unwrapping the Impala with a flourish and heading off to meet Sam.
As he spends more time with his brother, Dean becomes more suspicious of his behavior and motives, but he is distracted in 6.
There is also the matter of Bobby's deal with Crowley. Dean and Sam travel to Scotland during 6.
Dean's fear of air travel made the journey difficult, but he made the trip to help Bobby. Dean's relationships with Lisa and Ben and his own brother are severely strained in 6.
He goes to Lisa to say goodbye, frightens her, and shoves Ben away roughly when the boy gets too close. Samuel Campbell has a cure for vampirism, but Dean needs the blood of the vampire that turned him, so he goes to the vampire nest and slaughters them all with a machete.
While there, he has a vision of the Alpha Vampire and his plan to build a vampire army. He takes the cure and undergoes an agonizing transformation back into a human.
During the transformation, he remembers the moment he was turned and realizes in horror that Sam stood by and smiled while it was happening.
Dean avoids speaking with Lisa about what happened, but when they finally do speak in 6. Left with only Sam and his guilt over endangering and then losing Lisa and Ben, Dean tries to find out what is wrong with Sam and how to fix it.
When Veritas declares Sam to be "not human," Dean attacks his brother and knocks him unconscious. He calls Castiel , who diagnoses Sam as soulless.
Though Dean distrusts Sam, he still sees him as his brother. He tries to find a way to return Sam's soul, but the answer eludes him, even though he goes so far as to work with Crowley in his search for Purgatory , hoping the demon will return Sam's soul.
This hope is lost when Castiel incinerates the demon. Dean becomes increasingly disturbed by RoboSam 's behavior and the thought of Sam's soul still in Hell.
Finally, in 6. The second half of the season begins with Sam having regained his soul, and Dean worrying that Sam will remember his time in Hell if he tries to remember too much of the last year.
Dean tries to hide the existence of his soulless self from Sam, but his brother finds out, and wants to make amends for what he did. They are soon distracted, though, by the arrival of a new threat: Eve.
The mother of all supernatural creatures, she is released from Purgatory in 6. They research her and her possible weaknesses, and follow the trail of destruction she leaves behind.
Dean is possessed by one of her new creatures in 6. And Then There Were None. The angelic civil war is also an obstacle, and sends them into an alternate universe in 6.
Dean gets to live out a cowboy fantasy when Castiel sends the brothers to the Old West in 6. They manage to get the ashes, and strike out after Eve in 6.
She has created a town of monsters, and they have little hope, but Dean, having drunk some of the ash, antagonizes Eve into biting him. She dies, but the victory of her death is overshadowed by her announcement that Crowley, who they thought was killed by Castiel, is still alive.
Dean defends Castiel against Sam and Bobby's suspicions, but when they discover the angel has been spying on them, even Dean cannot deny that the angel is not being honest with them.
When they finally unravel Crowley's plan to open Purgatory and use its captive souls as a power source, Dean is shocked and horrified to discover that Castiel has been working with Crowley in secret for the last two years.
Castiel is adamant that he needs his half of the souls in Purgatory to defeat Raphael, who wants to restart the Apocalypse, but Dean is resolved to stop him and Crowley.
Crowley tries to hold Dean off by kidnapping Ben and Lisa. Dean saves them, but Lisa is gravely injured. Castiel, in a last act of friendship, heals Lisa, and at Dean's request erases their memories of Dean.
Dean's path is next blocked by Castiel, who knocks down Sam's wall to hold Dean back. Even so, Dean and Bobby resolve to stop the angel and the demon.
They fail, however, and Castiel manages to claim all the souls in Purgatory for himself, and kills Raphael. A weakened Sam tries to kill the angel, but they discover that he is too powerful.
Dean is confronted with the loss of someone that he considered a brother, and the terrifying prospect of a new, God-like enemy. As Castiel travels the world, wreaking havoc in his attempt to right the wrongs he sees, Dean despairs.
He sees chance of stopping the angel , and instead resorts to drinking, focusing on the broken Impala , and worrying about Sam. As Castiel's actions become more erratic, Dean does come up with an option: binding Death , as Lucifer did.
Dean, Bobby and Sam succeed in putting a spell on Death, but Castiel undoes it in a moment. Death does agree to assist in reopening Purgatory , but it is up to them to get Castiel to release the souls.
Dean refuses to pray for Castiel to come, thinking there is no hope. Instead Sam prays, and eventually Castiel appears.
Cas tries to apologize to Dean, but Dean is not forgiving. Cas returns the souls, and survives, but is taken over by Leviathans , which hung on inside him.
Castiel disappears beneath the water, and Dean finds Castiel's trench coat at the shore, and takes it with him.
Dean and Bobby take a disturbed Sam back to Bobby's place , and confront him about the consequences of losing his wall. Sam admits that he is seeing Lucifer , and cannot tell if he is out of Hell , or still there.
Dean worries about Sam as he leaves to investigate the first of the known Leviathan killings. When he returns to Bobby's house, he finds Sam missing, and tracks him by his phone GPS.
Sam's hallucinations manifested as Dean, and led him to a warehouse as part of an imaginary hunt. Tormented by his visions, Sam nearly shoots the real Dean when he arrives.
Dean, with as much calm as he can manage, grabs Sam's injured hand, and uses the pain of it and his own experiences in Hell to convince his brother that this is the real world.
When they return to the salvage yard, they find Bobby's house destroyed, and no sign of the hunter. Dean calls Bobby's phone, and leaves him a desperate, near suicidal, message, pleading for him to be alive.
The brothers are attacked by Edgar the Leviathan in the salvage yard, and are so badly injured that they are taken to the Sioux Falls hospital, which is also infested with leviathans.
Bobby appears in 7. As they heal, Dean continues to worry about Sam, though his brother insists he is well. When Sam disappears suddenly to investigate a case on his own, Dean follows his trail, and finds out that he was hunting a kitsune named Amy Pond who has been killing criminals.
Sam met her when they were kids, before finding out what she was. He leaves her alive now because she was hunting for her sick son.
Dean pretends to accept Sam's decision, but secretly goes after Amy and kills her. In the weeks that follow, Dean's worry over Sam and the Leviathans, and guilt over the Amy situation, overwhelm him.
He sinks into alcohol dependency, even drinking on jobs. Sam cannot understand, and tries to get Dean to open up, while also attacking Dean's alcohol use.
Matters are complicated when two Leviathans masquerade as Sam and Dean in 7. Bobby sends them to Frank Devereaux , who gives them new fake IDs and insists that they hide the Impala , something to which Dean agrees with great reluctance.
Sam and Dean are eventually caught by police, and the leviathans come after them. Dean manages to behead them with an axe, but not before the one pretending to be Dean reveals the truth about Amy to Sam.
The brothers separate for a time, but reunite to investigate a series of murders in 7. Dean receives an unexpected message from Ellen through a real medium, encouraging him to talk to Sam about how he feels.
Dean obeys, and tells Sam he feels justified in killing Amy, but guilty about lying to Sam. Eventually they move on, and take their annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas, but life takes another odd detour in 7.
Dean is forced to work with Garth , an unusual hunter, to get his brother back. In spite of his drugged state, Sam is able to help with the case, and Dean admits that Sam does not need him the same way that he used to.
Sam suggests that Dean should be relieved, and that now he has a chance to look after himself instead. Dean does not seem comforted by the idea.
Investigating murders in New Jersey during 7. They are tampering with the food supply through the Biggerson's Restaurant chain, and Dean ends up drugged by a turducken sandwich, which blocks his emotional turmoil.
After Dean recovers, they go after the leviathan test facility, but during their escape Bobby is shot in the head by Dick Roman. The boys rush him to the hospital, where an administrator asks Dean about organ donation.
Dean is furious to the point of punching a wall. Outside the hospital, he sees Dick Roman. Dean taunts him, and promises vengeance. Bobby awakes briefly, gives the brothers a series of numbers , and dies.
The brothers retreat to Rufus's cabin to mourn. Over the next three weeks, Dean obsesses about the numbers, and agrees to split up with Sam on a case during 7.
Dean has been losing track of time, and does not know that he gave Frank the numbers only four days before. Frank has identified them as map coordinates, and the two set up surveillance on the designated area.
Dean passes out, and sleeps for thirty-six straight hours. When he wakes, Frank reveals that he lost his whole family to monsters, and advises Dean that he has two options: to quit, or to keep hunting, and smile while he does it.
Dean considers Frank's words carefully, then sets out to find a missing Sam with Krissy Chambers. Dean gets similar advice from Eliot Ness in 7.
Dean has a drunken one night stand with what turns out to be an Amazon in 7. Dean tries to persuade her that she does not need to be a monster, but she does not relent, and Sam kills her.
Dean's drinking slows after this, though he continues to carry Bobby's flask with him. During "Repo Man," Dean gets kidnapped by the former host of a demon they exorcised while searching for Lilith and as a result of allowing the Lucifer hallucination to help him find Dean, allowing it a stronger grip on Sam's mind.
Dean searches for a faith healer, and to his surprise finds an amnesiac Cas serving as one. He takes Cas to Sam with Meg in tow, telling Cas that his brother was hurt by Dean's friend, and that Dean has not been able to forgive him.
At the hospital, Cas remembers who he is after fighting a group of demons, and Dean returns his coat.
Cas takes on Sam's suffering, and remains at the hospital in a catatonic state watched by Meg. The brothers reteam with Garth in 7. The same idea has occurred to the brothers, but both are reluctant to believe it Bobby is shown to be watching over and helping them and they are finally able to see him in 7.
Dean in particular is bothered by Bobby's presence, worrying that Bobby made the wrong decision in staying behind.
Still, they work toward bringing down the leviathans, and manage to steal a tablet that is the Word of God from Dick Roman , and have a prophet named Kevin Tran translates it for them.
Uncovering the tablet wakes Castiel, and Dean tries to get him involved in the fight, but Cas is hesitant and damaged and leaves.
The brothers work on a weapon to defeat the Leviathans based on the tablet, and secure blood from the Alpha Vampire , Castiel, and Crowley for it.
Bobby meanwhile becomes vengeful, and asks the brothers to burn the flask, and send him away. They agree, and Dean burns it. He then asks Cas to transport him to the Impala , and tries again to get the angel to come with them in the attack on Dick as he is the key to finding the real Dick.
Cas is afraid of doing wrong again, but Dean insists that either way he would rather the angel be with him, and forgives him for what he did.
Castiel finally agrees and Dean, Sam , Castiel and Meg attack SucroCorp , using Meg and the Impala as a distraction.
Dean faces down Dick Roman and finally kills him with Castiel's help, but as a side-effect, Dean and Castiel are sucked into Purgatory with Dick.
Once there Castiel disappears on Dean, leaving him surrounded by monsters. After a year in Purgatory , Dean escapes with the aid of a vampire called Benny Lafitte , who he subsequently restores to life with a ritual, but Castiels fate is initially unknown.
Reuniting with Sam and Kevin , Dean learns that Kevin has discovered another Word of God tablet containing a ritual that could seal the Gates of Hell forever, but Kevin flees because he does not trust Dean to keep him safe.
