Keep it. Dean's covered. Death's own. Kills... golly, demons and angels and reapers and rumor has it... the very thing itself.
This weapon first appears as a sickle in Alastair's possession He claims that Death, an old friend, lent it to him. According to Crowley, this scythe can kill reapers, demons, and angels Crowley also tells Dean and Sam that according to current rumors, this weapon can kill Death. This is confirmed when Dean uses the scythe on Death to protect Sam. The scythe crumbles to dust with its master afterwards.
Oh. An old friend lent it to me. You know, he doesn't really ride a pale horse, but he does have three amigos, and they're just jonesin' for the Apocalypse!
Crowley gives Dean the scythe before the two go to Chicago to find Death, telling him it is believed to be capable of killing Death himself. How Crowley got it is unclear; the last time we saw the scythe, Alastair was using it to kill reapers before he was captured by angels. Armed with the scythe, Dean nervously tries to ambush Death in a Chicago pizzeria, but the handle begins to burn in Death's proximity and Dean drops it. Death thanks him for returning the scythe, which moves from its position on the floor beside Dean to lying on the table near Death's right hand without Dean seeing it move.
After Dean is ready to kill Sam, Death gives him his scythe to do the job. At the last moment, Dean turns the scythe on Death himself, impaling him through the side and killing him. When Death crumbles to dust, so does his scythe.
Billie, having taken on the mantle of Death, appears before Dean clad in black holding a new scythe. After teleporting herself and Dean to her reading room, she places the scythe against a wall away from Dean, noting she knows better than to just leave it lying around in his close vicinity.
- Although obviously not Death's scythe, a very similar sickle can be seen on the table in the basement of Rufus's cabin when Dean takes Kevin Tran there in 7.21 Reading Is Fundamental.
