Crowley: Keep it. Dean's covered. Death's own. Kills.. golly, demons and angels and reapers and rumor has it... the very thing itself.
Castiel: How did you get that?Crowley: Hello! King of the Crossroads!
This weapon first appears in Alastair's possession He claimed that an old friend lent it to him. According to Crowley, this scythe can kill reapers, demons and angels Crowley also told Dean and Sam that according to current rumors, this weapon can kill Death. This is confirmed when Dean kills Death with it 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, killing him. When Death crumbles to dust, so does his scythe.
- Although obviously not Death's scythe, a very similar weapon 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.
