SummaryEdit

A year after Sam sacrificed himself to stop the Apocalypse, Dean has built a happy, normal life for himself with Lisa and Ben, but Sam soon returns along with the brothers' grandfather Samuel Campbell and the boys' extended maternal family of hunters; and thus Dean gradually begins to get drawn back into hunting and away from Lisa and Ben, until eventually he ends up leaving them almost altogether.

Meanwhile, Dean grows increasingly suspicious of Sam's cold, ruthless and amoral behaviour, until he eventually becomes convinced that it isn't Sam. Sam and Dean learn that it is indeed Sam, but without his soul, which is still in Lucifer's cage, and the brothers set about getting Sam his soul back. Sam and Dean shortly afterwards discover that Samuel is capturing monsters and Alphas (the latter the original monster of their species each) for Crowley, the new King of Hell after Lucifer's defeat, in Crowley's efforts to find a way of opening the door to Purgatory (the realm which monsters go to when they die instead of Heaven or Hell), and Crowley forcefully recruits Sam and Dean into this if they want Sam's soul back. However, Sam and Dean eventually turn on and seemingly defeat Crowley, and they afterwards manage to restore Sam's soul.

After Sam's soul is restored, a mental wall is put up to protect his mind from the damage his soul suffered in Hell, although some of the memories begin to bleed through and the brothers begin to suffer repercussions from some of the amoral atrocities Sam committed in the year he was soulless, and Sam's mental dam is eventually destroyed. A civil war in Heaven between Raphael's traditionalist angels who want to restart the Apocalypse and Castiel's freedom-fighting angels who want to stop them also becomes an obstacle for Sam and Dean. Also, Eve, the creator of the Alpha monsters and the matriarch of all monsters, returns to Earth from Purgatory and begins creating and spreading new monsters to overrun the Earth as retaliation against Crowley for torturing her monster children in his search for Purgatory, and Sam, Dean, Bobby and Castiel work to track Eve down and stop her. The team eventually succeed in finding and killing Eve, but afterwards learn that Castiel is in a secret alliance with Crowley in the search for a way to open Purgatory, so that Cass can use the power of Purgatory's souls to win the heavenly civil war and stop Raphael, and this in turn causes a rift between Cass and Dean.

When Crowley and Castiel obtain the means of opening the door to Purgatory, Cass double-crosses Crowley, and so Crowley allies with Raphael to open Purgatory and use the power of its monster souls, but Cass tricks them and does the ritual himself; absorbing all the souls in Purgatory and using their power to defeat Raphael and Crowley, but then becoming corrupted by the power.
