10.05 Fan Fiction

Calliope began targeting Marie's play based off of Chuck Shurley's Supernatural books. To this end, she conjured a scarecrow similar to the one in the play who kidnapped Mrs. Chandler and Maggie when they were planning to shut the play down. This drew the attention of Sam and Dean who at first thought it was a Tulpa but realized it was actually her. As Sam was trying to ruin her plans, Calliope had her scarecrow kidnap him too and pinned him to a wall when he attacked her, saying that this play felt especially special to her, possibly because Sam and Dean, the inspiration for the work was there. As she was disgusted with some of the play, she sent in the scarecrow early to get Marie which Dean fought off unsuccessfully. Calliope explains to Sam she chose Supernatural as it has everything including life, death, resurrection, redemption and family and she considered it an epic. As she rants to Sam, Maggie attacks her with a book, breaking her hold on Sam while Mrs. Chandler kicks him his stake. As Calliope turns on Maggie, Sam stabs her in the back with the stake, killing her and causing her and her scarecrow to explode into purple goo.

Calliope in Lore
