===Creatures and denizens===
Human [[soul]]s can get sent to Hell after making [[Deals and Pacts|deals]] with [[crossroads demon]]s or other demons. [[Hellhound]]s capture then kill the person when their their time is up. Once in Hell, a soul will be tortured for centuries until the last vestiges of their humanity are burned away, creating new demons to continue the cycle of torture. The length of time it takes for a human to become a demon is unknown, as John Winchester spent a century being tortured, and was able to escape Hell in his human form.
 
Hell is also home to various demonic entities. [[Daeva]]s are savage and animalistic creatures that reside in shadows, are summoned to act as demonic pitbulls. [[Acheri demon]]s are a lower class, that like daevas can be controlled. Unlike typical demons, Acheri are capable of manifesting as young children without the need for a meatsuit. The [[Whore of Babylon]] is an Apocalyptic creature, that is released from Hell to serve Lucifer by damning as many innocent souls to Hell by acting as a false [[prophet]]. The ''[[shedim]]'' are demonic creatures deemed Hell's most savage and base, that God locked them away in the deepest caverns of Hell, so dangerous were the ''shedim'', even Lucifer feared their release unto the world, so much so he permanently scarred [[Asmodeus]] for releasing them.
 
[[Hellhounds]] were originally created by [[God]] to serve as "Creator's best friend", but do to their vicious nature, God ordered them to be put down. Lucifer, showing mercy for the creatures saved one, a pregnant hound named [[Ramsey]] who was only loyal to Lucifer, which forced her to be locked away in Hell's kennel. Some point after the birth of Ramsey's litter, hellhounds were put to work by demons to collect the souls of humans who made [[crossroads]] deals, and drag them to Hell.

Once a human soul has had it's humanity burned away, their once human form gives way to a more mangled and horrific visage. The longer a demon resides in Hell the stronger they can become, making escape somewhat more easier. Once Crowley took over Hell, access to to the earthly plane was made more difficult, as he would only allow certain demons, whom he knew he could control topside.

==Winchesters in Hell==
==Escape from Hell==
[[Azazel]] was able to move freely between Hell and Earth, and [[Alastair]] appeared to be able too, as well as [[Crowley]]. [[Castiel]], and other [[angels]] have been able to enter and return, though at a cost as entering Hell for angels can be very dangerous.
 
===Angelic Rescue===
[[Castiel]] reported that [[angel]]s laid siege to Hell to rescue [[Dean Winchester]] before he broke the first seal, but did not reach him in time. Eventually, it was Castiel who pull Dean from Hell.
===Devil's Gates===
The majority of Hell's occupants are trapped and can only escape through portals connecting Hell and Earth known as [[Devil's Gate]]s.
[[Samuel Colt]] built a giant [[Devil's trap (symbol)|devil's trap]] and a special lock to keep the [[Devil's Gate in Wyoming]] shut. When [[Jake Talley]] uses used [[the Colt]] to open the gate, scores of [[demon]]s escape, as do [[soul]]s including [[John Winchester]].
See also: [[Devil's Gate in Clifton]] & [[Devil's Gate in Wyoming]].
 
===Summoning===
[[Demon]]s can be released from Hell via a summoning ritual performed by a powerful [[witch]] or a foolish [[Trevor|novice]] with access to a grimoire. A specific demon can be summoned, as in the case of [[Samhain]], [[Azazel]] and [[Crowley]], or any random demon may arise. When Samhain is summoned, a tear opens in the ground and he emerges as a demonic cloud to possess a dead body.
 
Demons that are [[exorcise]]d from their hosts appear to leave the immediate vicinity and are presumably drawn back down to Hell. Those that are exorcised by Sam's powers spill onto the floor and sink through the earth, leaving a burning patch on the ground.
 
===Angelic Rescue===
[[Castiel]] reports that [[angel]]s laid siege to Hell to rescue [[Dean]] before he broke the first seal, but did not reach him in time. Eventually, it is Castiel who rescues him.
 
===Restriction and Confinement===
[[Samhain]] can only be released from Hell every six hundred years. It requires two powerful [[witch]]es performing three blood sacrifices over three days, the last day being October 31st (Halloween).<ref name="four07">[[4.07 It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester]]</ref> [[Lilith]] was said to be imprisoned deep in the pit by Azazel, claiming her release would not be easy.
===Escape from Lucifer's Cage===
[[File:Lucifer's Cage Opening.jpg|350px|right|thumb|The mouth to [[Lucifer's Cage]] is opened.]]
[[Lucifer's Cage]] was built to secure the [[Lucifer|archangel ]] [[Lucifer]]. The mouth of the Cage was heavily secured by 600 locks. Only a fraction of these, called [[the 66 Seals]], needed to be broken to release Lucifer. The four individual rings belonging to the [[Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse]], once merged together, can could also open the Cage. Once secured, not even [[archangels]] can leave the Cage without a door being opened from the outside.
[[Castiel]] says that Lucifer's Cage is too well-guarded for even [[angel]]s to access,<ref name="six07">[[6.07 Family Matters]]</ref> but it is revealed that he tried to free [[Sam]], bringing out his body but not his [[soul]].<ref name="six20">[[6.20 The Man Who Would Be King]]</ref> The leprechaun, [[Wayne Whittaker]] claimed to know how to use "real magic" to gain access to the Cage to retrieve Sam's soul. [[Death]], the fourth and most powerful of the Four Horsemen, is was able to retrieve Sam's soul from the Cage and return it to him.<ref name="six11">[[6.11 Appointment in Samarra]]</ref>
It is hinted that collecting [[Heaven]]'s weapons could give one the power to release [[Lucifer]] and [[Michael]], as [[Raphael]] attempted to do so, but was killed before he had the chance.
As Sam attempted to contact Lucifer without opening the Cage, harrowing Hell with Crowley and Rowena, Rowena was able to perform a ritual from to pulled ''[[Book of the Damned]]'' to pull Lucifer's essence from the Cage without opening it, summoning him into a warded holding cell in Limbo.
[[File:HellEntrance-Purgatory.jpg|thumb|350px|left|The backdoor into Hell, located in [[Purgatory]].]]
===Purgatory Portal===
In [[Purgatory]], there is a portal that acts as a backdoor to Hell. Anyone with access to this portal, such as rogue [[reaper]]s, can sneak in and out of Hell and take [[soul]]s with them. The entrance is located along a stream leading to where three trees meet as one, a large rock covers the entrance, once removed the the portal resides in a dark hole, which leads to a dark corridor in Hell. [[Sam Winchester]] is able to use this to rescue [[Bobby Singer]]'s [[soul]].<ref name="eight19">[[8.19 Taxi Driver]]</ref>
{||===Reapers===Being the servants of [[Death]], reapers have access to all spiritual planes in existence. As a favor to Crowley, the then reaper [[File:HellEntrance-PurgatoryBillie]] was able to create an entrance way on earth to Limbo for Dean Winchester.jpg|thumb|350px|The backdoor into  ===Restriction and Confinement===[[Samhain]] can only be released from Hellevery six hundred years.
