When [[God]] created the world, He created the Garden of Eden, the crossroads between divinity and humanity, where he kept His prize creations, [[Adam and Eve]]. However, [[Gadreel]], the [[angel]] who was tasked to guard Eden and prevent any evil from entering, allowed [[Lucifer]] to enter the Garden. The [[archangel]]'s actions led to the corruption of humanity and their exile from the Garden. The Garden of Eden exists in an alternate realm, having been compressed into an orb by Chuck following humanity's exile. This orb was hidden on Earth and became known as [[the
Occoltum]]. According to [[Castiel]], no one has been there since the exile of humanity, however the Garden can be accessed if a non-human entity consumes the Occultum.
Within the Garden is a [[The Girl|young girl]] and an albino python snake. The young girl appears to have great knowledge of the Garden, but her actual purpose is not known. The snake or the nature of the Garden itself appears to have the ability to restore lost [[souls]] in [[soulless]] people.
In Santa Fe, New Mexico, Dean and Jack meet [[Adam and Eve|Adam]] himself along with his wife, the angel [[Serafina]] since [[Eve]] left long ago, unable to put up with him. He explains that their exile from the Garden of Eden was part of one of Chuck's first stories. Initially, they both believed they deserved it, until Chuck started toying with their sons, [[Cain]] and Abel. As a result, Adam has spent the past 300,000 years searching for a way to kill God and Serafina has kept him alive so he can see his plan come to fruition.
