Dean locates [[Dr. Robert]], a doctor who knew John, and who currently operates unauthorized. He and his medical assistant Eva stop Dean's heart, killing him, and allowing for an out-of-body experience. After his soul departs from his body, Dean summons [[Tessa]], and requests that she call Death. She refuses to disturb her superior, but Death appears nonetheless, and greets Dean. Dean asks Death to retrieve Sam's soul and their brother [[Adam]] from the Cage. Death instructs him to pick only one of his brothers, and Dean chooses Sam. Death tells Dean that he will raise Sam's soul if Dean acts as Death using his ring for twenty-four hours. Dean accepts, but fails, taking the ring off before the end of the day. Death reappears to Dean, eating a bacon dog, and offers another to Dean. Dean returns the ring, and speculates that Death knew he would not be able to complete the deal. Death is pleased when he sees Dean has learned something about the natural order, and the consequences of changing it. In spite of Dean's failure, Death prepares to return Sam's soul, telling Dean to continue his research on [[Purgatory]] and souls. Death disappears, collects Sam's soul, and returns it to Sam, inserting a mental barrier in his mind to hold back the memories and consequences of the constant torture which his soul endured. He warns Sam not to scratch at the wall.

===[[9.01 I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here]]===
When Sam is near death from the damage he took from the [[trials]], Death himself comes to reap him, appearing to him in his coma dream and saying that he considers it an honor to take Sam's soul personally and that while he usually doesn't pass judgment, he tells Sam "well played, my boy," hinting his knowledge of Sam undertaking the trials to close the [[Hell Gates|Gates of Hell]]. Sam is ready to come with him and asks if Death can make it so that he dies permanently this time and can't be brought back which Death confirms. However, before Sam can go with Death, [[Ezekiel]] shows up in Dean's form to try to convince Sam to not give up and say "Yes" to him which will allow him to possess him and heal him from the inside. Death doesn't interfere saying that it's Sam's decision and he ultimately says yes after which Death disappears from Sam's mind. Ezekiel later erases Sam's memories of the encounter with Death to prevent Sam from ejecting him.
===[[10.23 Brother's Keeper]]===
Deciding that he can't fight the influence of the [[Mark of Cain]] anymore, [[Dean]] sets-up shop in an empty bar where he proceeds to summon Death, believing he's the only thing powerful enough to kill him. When Death arrives, Dean offers him some Mexican food that he prepared himself, which Death gladly dines on. As Dean makes his case to Death to kill him, Death tells him that the Mark won't allow for that, but tells him he can remove the Mark, but Dean must first give it to someone else before he will. Death explains that the Mark was created by [[God]] to bind [[the Darkness]], an ancient evil that existed before life or even the Earth. If the Mark is removed without being passed on, the Darkness will be released. The Mark initially belonged to [[Lucifer]] who was corrupted by it, which led to his fall and it being passed it onto [[Cain]] who passed it onto Dean. When Dean refuses to pass the Mark on, Death offers him another option: Death can transport him so far away he's no longer a threat to anyone, but he demands Dean kill [[Sam]] in exchange so Sam won't try to get him back.
