8.17 Goodbye Stranger
Well, I've lied... a lot. I've stolen. I've lusted. And the other day I met this man - a nice guy, you know? And we had a really good chat... sort of like this. Then I slit his throat and ripped his heart out through his chest. Does that make me a bad person?
– Meg, 1.21 Salvation
Look, I'm simpler than you think. I've figured one thing out about this world – just one, pretty much. You find a cause, and you serve it. Give yourself over, and it orders your life. Lucifer and Yellow Eyes – their mission was it for me.
– Meg, 7.21 Reading Is Fundamental
The demon is a black-eyed demon referred to as Meg after the name of the host in which she first appears, Meg Masters. She told Dean that she has had many names over the centuries. She apprenticed as a torturer in Hell under Alastair.
Meg initially worked for Azazel, whom she called "father" while Azazel referred to her as his daughter. She acted as Azazel's agent and kept tabs on Sam after he left Stanford to hunt with Dean. 
Following the death of her meatsuit, Meg Masters, and her exorcism, the demon returned to Hell but later escaped and possessed Sam. She planned to use Sam to kill as many hunters as she could and to torture and eventually kill Dean as her revenge on the Winchesters. She is stopped by Dean and Bobby Singer and eventually dispossesses Sam after they destroy the binding link.
Meg returns after the Apocalypse has begun, possessing the body of a young girl from Cheboygan, MI who moved to Los Angeles to be an actress. She shows herself to be loyal to Lucifer and has a demon possess Bobby to find out about the "Michael Sword." By turning Ruby's knife on himself, Bobby kills the demon but also paralyzes himself.
Following Lucifer's re-imprisonment, Crowley takes over Hell and aims to kill those loyal to Lucifer. Sam deduces that she is on the run, and he and Dean agree to help her find Crowley as part of their quest to restore Sam's soul. After they learn that Crowley cannot retrieve Sam's soul, Castiel "kills" Crowley, and Meg escapes.
- Meg doesn't reveal when she undertook this apprenticeship, but it must have been before Alastair's capture in 4.15 Death Takes a Holiday, as he was killed in the following episode. She is known to have been in Hell in the time between her exorcism in 1.22 Devil's Trap and her return for revenge against the Winchesters in 2.14 Born Under a Bad Sign; if his words in 4.16 On the Head of a Pin were true, he would have also been working on torturing and trying to tempt John's soul at the time. Alternately, Alastair may have taught her previously in Hell at some point pre-series.
- She first possessed Meg Masters around October 2005, and possessed her for a year before she was exorcised around November 2006.
- Around March 2007 (see season two timeline), she possessed Sam (aka Evil!Sam). Her powers seemed stronger and she tells Dean she no longer gives a "rat's ass" for Azazel's plans. She eventually flees Sam to prevent being exorcised once again.
- Sometime in 2009, Meg reappears in a new meatsuit and is working for Lucifer.
- Several months after Dean returns to hunting, Meg approaches the Winchesters. Their partnership results in the apparent death of Crowley, but was not a lasting alliance.
- Several months after the Leviathans rise, Meg forms another alliance with Sam and Dean to protect Castiel from Crowley. She is instrumental in the assault on SucroCorp, but is captured by demons afterwards.
- Over a year later, Meg is tortured by Crowley for the location of Lucifer's Crypts before being rescued by Castiel. She ultimately sacrifices herself to buy Sam, Dean and Castiel time to escape with the angel tablet.
Meg has black eyes (irises and sclerae). Her true face is not shown, but an insane Castiel describes her as being "so beautiful"; if not a product of his skewed view of the world at the time or a line of poetry, which Meg hates, then this is highly unusual, as the true forms of demons are usually described in horrific terms. Meg has a preference for possessing beautiful women. She has shown knowledge of spells that even most other demons haven't, and as a pupil of Alastair, she is skilled at both enduring and inflicting torture.
Powers and abilities
- Superhuman strength and durability – Meg's strength far exceeded that of normal humans, and even in a weakened state proved to be stronger than other demons. Unlike lesser demons, Meg was able to set foot upon hallowed ground. Having apprenticed under Alastair in Hell also gave Meg strong endurance against physical torture.
- Telekinesis – Meg was a powerful telekinetic, capable of moving objects and people around with a simple look.
- Telepathy – Through possession, Meg was able to learn all the thoughts and emotions of her meatsuits when she possessed them.
- Teleportation – She was a powerful enough demon to teleport anywhere she wished.
- Weather manipulation – Her presence causes sudden gusts of air.
- Angels – Meg could be easily overpowered by angels.
- Angel blade – Meg is killed with an angel blade wielded by Crowley.
- The Colt – The Colt could kill Meg like any other demon.
- Demon-killing knife – Being stabbed with the demon-killing knife would have been fatal.
- Devil's traps – Meg could be rendered powerless inside of a devil's trap. However, she learned of a spell which allowed her to break a devil's trap from within once she entered one, effectively rendering them a mere hindrance to her. 
- Exorcism – Meg had been sent back to Hell once through exorcism rites. But unlike most demons, Meg was able to claw her way out of Hell within a year.
- Holy fire – Contact with holy fire caused agonizing pain to Meg when Castiel used her body as bridge to set out of a holy fire trap.
- Holy water – While Meg could walk on hallowed ground, like all demons she could be burned by any form of contact with holy water.
- "Tire quiero patem me a di. It makes no sense. I could’ve stopped Sam. Hell, I could’ve taken them both. Why let them go? Yes. Yes. Yes, Father."
Sam has left Dean and is traveling to find his father in California when he encounters Meg Masters, who is also hitch-hiking. Their first encounter is brief, as she soon gets a lift with "sleazy van guy." She later turns up at the bus station and she and Sam bond over feeling trapped by their families' expectations. Meg tries to dissuade Sam from going back to his brother when he becomes concerned that Dean is in trouble. At the end of the episode, Meg has found another ride. She gets the driver to pull over and then cuts his throat with a dagger, collecting his blood in a goblet. She swirls the blood with her finger, and after a Latin incantation, communicates with someone she calls "father." She reveals that she knows the true identity of Sam and Dean and wanted to kill them, but has apparently been instructed not to do so.
- "I’m doing this for the same reasons you do what you do—loyalty. Love. Like the love you had for Mommy—and Jess."
The boys run into Meg in a bar in Chicago. Sam is immediately suspicious of this coincidence and follows her, eventually discovering that she has a black altar set up in an abandoned warehouse, and is controlling the daevas. She again uses the goblet of blood to communicate with someone to whom she reports. It is later shown that the whole set-up is a ploy to lure John Winchester and the boys to Chicago. Meg fails in her plan to destroy the family despite capturing Sam and Dean because when her altar is destroyed, the daevas turn on her. She plummets from one of the warehouse's upper stories down to the sidewalk. However, she survives and uses a necklace to regain control of the daevas and use them to try to kill the Winchesters. Sam manages to drive them off with a flare and Meg watches, unhappy, from nearby as Sam, Dean and John go their separate ways.
- "You hear that? That's the sound of your friend dying. Now let's try this again. We know you have the gun John, word travels fast. So as far as we're concerned you just declared war. And this is what war looks like. It has casualties."
Meg begins murdering John Winchester's friends, Pastor Jim and Caleb, in order to force him to hand over the Colt. She gets John to come to a warehouse in Lincoln, Nebraska on the corner of Wabash and Lake. He hands over a fake Colt, which is identified as such when Meg's "brother" Tom shoots her with it and she doesn't die. She and Tom then capture John Winchester.
1.22 Devil's Trap
- "Didn’t I say 'no more crap'? I swear – after everything I heard about you Winchesters, I got to tell you, I’m a little underwhelmed. First Johnny tries to pawn off a fake gun, and then he leaves the real gun with you two chuckleheads. Lackluster, men. I mean, did you really think I wouldn’t find you?"
Meg calls Dean to reveal that she is holding their father. Later she tracks the brothers down at Bobby Singer's place, but is captured under the devil's trap on Bobby's ceiling. Sam starts to exorcise her, while Dean interrogates her as to their dad's whereabouts She eventually gives it up, but when Dean wants to continue the exorcism, Bobby points out that she is actually a woman possessed by a demon, and that because of the injuries she sustained in Chicago, will die when the demon leaves her. The demon is banished, and the human Meg tells Sam and Dean more about where John is being held before she dies and that the demon had wanted them to know as it is a trap.
Later, when Azazel reveals himself to Sam and Dean, he reveals that he knows that they exorcised his "daughter" and holds a grudge against Dean for it, saying that Dean "destroyed" her. When Dean taunts him about it, Azazel telekinetically slashes his abdomen open in revenge, nearly killing Dean.
2.01 In My Time of Dying
Along with Tom, Meg is referred to by Azazel as somebody very special to him whom he has lost because of Dean, for which Azazel wants Dean dead almost as badly as he wants to get the Colt. In saying so, he again refers to Dean as having "killed" Meg and Tom; however, 2.14 Born Under a Bad Sign reveals that Meg is still alive but trapped in Hell, something Azazel would presumably be aware of (if he knew the effects of an exorcism).
2.14 Born Under a Bad Sign
- "You know when people want to describe the worst possible thing? They say it's like Hell. You know there's a reason for that. Hell is like, um... Well, it's like Hell. Even for demons. It's a prison, made of bone and flesh and blood and fear. And you sent me back there."
Meg has been in Hell -- which she describes as "a prison, made of bone and flesh and blood and fear." She escapes to possess Sam, planning to kill hunters and provoke Dean into killing his brother. While possessing Sam, Meg smokes menthol cigarettes and drinks hard liquor. She kills a hunter, Steve Wandell, and using Jo for bait, nearly kills Dean. She then goes after Bobby, but her possession of Sam is revealed when Bobby gives her beer laced with holy water.
Bobby and Dean trap her beneath a devil's trap, and she reveals that she no longer gives a "rat's ass" for the plans of the Yellow-Eyed Demon. Bobby and Dean find it difficult to exorcise her because she has used a binding link to bind herself to Sam's body. Bobby finally burns the link with a fire iron, and the demon flees, but does not go to Hell.
4.02 Are You There, God? It's Me, Dean Winchester
Lilith casts a spell that breaks one of the 66 Seals that hold Lucifer captive and causing the Rise of the Witnesses -- ghosts of people killed in supernatural situations. They return as vengeful spirits and kill those who "let" them die: hunters. Meg Masters returns and confronts Dean. She tells him how she was a college student when she was possessed, that she was awake during her possession, and witnessed much horror. She also tells him how her disappearance had a terrible effect on her younger sister, who killed herself after Meg was found dead. The spirit of Meg Masters is put to rest when Bobby completes his spell banishing the Witnesses back to their afterlives.
5.01 Sympathy for the Devil
- "Hi. These are the days of miracle and wonder, Dean. Our father's among us. You know we're all dreaming again for the first time since we were human? It's Heaven on earth. Or Hell. We really owe your brother a fruit basket."
When Dean works out the meaning of Chuck's message about the location of the Michael Sword, Bobby attacks him, revealing that he is possessed by a demon. At that point Meg arrives -- Dean initially assuming that she is Ruby before Meg encourages him to think back further, informing Dean that the demons want him dead so he can't stop Lucifer. She orders the possessed Bobby to kill Dean with Ruby's knife, but just as he is about to strike, Bobby manages to battle the demon and stab himself instead, killing the demon. Sam returns and helps dispatch the other two demons, but Meg escapes by leaving her meatsuit before Dean can kill her.
5.10 Abandon All Hope...
- "We're gonna win. Can you feel it? You cloud-hopping pansies lost the whole damn universe. Lucifer's gonna take over Heaven. We're going to Heaven, Clarence"
After recovering her meatsuit, Meg has joined Lucifer after her encounter with the Winchesters. She is present with Lucifer in the city of Carthage, Missouri when Lucifer performs the ritual to release Death. Meg confronts Sam, Dean, Ellen, and Jo in the streets of Carthage, setting a pack of hellhounds on the group. Jo is grievously wounded, forcing the group to retreat to a hardware store to regroup.
Meg returns to Lucifer's side to ask for further instructions. He tells her to leave the brothers be, and leaves her to watch over Castiel, whom Lucifer has trapped within a ring of burning holy oil. Meg gleefully revels in the fact she and her kind are "winning" and taunts the angel about it. Castiel counters with what the demon Crowley's told the Winchesters: that Lucifer cares little for demons and sees them as a means to an end that will be destroyed as soon as humans are eradicated.
Meg does not believe him and comes forward to argue. Castiel telekinetically releases a large pipe from the ceiling above her and it swings forward, knocking Meg through the fire and into his arms. Castiel immediately tries to exorcise her with his touch, but his power fails him now that he is cut off from Heaven. Meg mocks Castiel, asking what he plans to do now that he is powerless. Castiel replies by throwing her onto the fire, and as she screams in agony walks over her body to escape from captivity.
6.10 Caged Heat
- "Where’s he take all those things you snatch up for him? I bet you an all-day sucker that’s where his majesty’s holed up. OK, officially over the foreplay. Satisfy me, or I please myself!"
Meg returns in her previous host, despite the fact that it has been thrown into holy fire by Castiel. She and other Lucifer loyalists are being hunted by Crowley, so she kidnaps Sam and Dean in order to force them to reveal Crowley's location. As Sam states, it was either "him or her."
Sam strikes a deal with her: she can torture and kill Crowley if Sam gets his soul back. Meg, the Winchesters and Castiel act on a tip from Samuel Campbell and locate Crowley's monster prison and infiltrate it, but are soon discovered by hellhounds. Meg offers to hold them off and kisses Castiel, and gets an even more passionate kiss in return. When they separate, Meg is holding his angel blade.
She kills the hellhounds with the weapon, but is then captured by a possessed Christian Campbell, who begins to torture her. Meg laughs at the pain, saying her host is a girl who moved to LA wanting to be an actress, and this probably wasn't even the worst thing to happen to her. While she is speaking, Dean sneaks up from behind and kills Christian with Ruby's knife. After trapping Crowley under a devil's trap, Meg tortures him to find out if he can restore Sam's soul. When he insists that he cannot, Dean hands Ruby's knife to Meg so she can kill Crowley, but he overpowers her and uses the knife to break the devil's trap. Castiel soon appears with Crowley's bones, which he burns, killing Crowley. In the moment, Meg escapes before Dean can kill her.
7.17 The Born-Again Identity
- "I don't know. I believe in the little tree topper."
As Dean takes Emmanuel Allen (the amnesiac Castiel) back to Northern Indiana State Hospital in the hope to cure Sam, who is being held there. Stopping to buy food, Dean is attacked by demons, but Meg shows up and kills one demon while the other flees. Dean is surprised to see her, and she tells him that she's there because of rumors about a wandering healer, who she's shocked to learn is "poor dead Castiel." She has an ongoing feud with Crowley and, like Dean, doesn't want him to know about Cas. Although they don't trust each other, Dean agrees to let her come with them to Indiana as long as she doesn't remind Castiel of his true identity yet. The three of them leave together.
At the hospital, Meg tells Castiel he's an angel and that he and Dean were best friends who used to fight together. Emmanuel realizes that he must be the "Cas" that Dean told him about, and he apologizes. After fighting the demons they find around the hospital, and his memories come back to him, assaulting him with images of his partnership with Crowley and his betrayal of Dean. Once the demons are taken care of, Meg and Dean approach him. He tells them that he remembers them—he remembers everything.
Unable to heal Sam, Castiel takes on his psychic damage himself, rendering himself comatose. Meg then gets a job at the hospital as a nurse so she can watch over him.
7.18 Party On, Garth
Meg talks to Dean on the phone and reveals that Castiel is still in the same mentally-damaged state he was in when they left.
7.21 Reading Is Fundamental
- "When are you gonna get it? Crowley's always the problem. He's just waiting for the right moment to strike. I know what I'm supposed to do. And it isn't screw with Sam and Dean or lose the only angel who'd go to bat for me."
Meg rings the boys to let them know that Castiel has woken from his coma. When they arrive, Castiel is obviously not completely sane. He also seems to have become rather attached to Meg.
After the prophet Kevin Tran arrives to steal the Word of God, two angels arrive named Hester and Inias who try to kill Meg. Meg holds off Inias with an angel blade that she says she got as "a lot of angels died this year," but before the situation can degenerate, Dean banishes the two and Castiel with an angel banishing sigil. Meg then travels with the boys, Kevin and Castiel to Rufus's cabin. At a gas stop on the way, Meg sees that a couple of demons are following them.
Later she meets up with the demons, under the pretense of making a deal, but instead kills them with Ruby's knife. When she returns to the cabin, the boys catch her in a devil's trap, but she convinces them that her method of surviving is to find a cause -- Lucifer, Azazel and follow it. Currently all she cares about is destroying Crowley and has no plans to betray Sam and Dean or Castiel. Sam and Dean believe her and set her free. Just then the angels arrive, having learned where they were because of her exposing herself. When Hester tries to kill Castiel, Meg stabs her in the back with an angel blade and then disappears into hiding again.
7.23 Survival of the Fittest
- "Gold star, sugarpants. Too bad he's Fruit Loops. You might've had a chance."
After learning that all the angels of his garrison have been killed, Castiel fetches Meg and has her take him to the Winchesters. There Meg is worried when she learns that they summoned Crowley who appears before she can flee and threatens her with painful torture. However, as the Winchesters need Castiel and he is fond of Meg, Crowley leaves her in Castiel's custody though he promises to get her later. When Castiel disappears after Sam and Dean demand to know what Crowley meant about him being able to help them kill Dick Roman, Meg explains that as the former vessel to all the Leviathans, Castiel can tell them apart and thus pick out the real Dick.
When the group assaults SucroCorp, Meg helps by creating a distraction: she drives the Impala through SucroCorp's main gate and giant glass sign, drawing out the Leviathan guards and allowing Sam, Dean and Castiel to sneak in. Meg, armed with a machete and Power Clean and immune to the guards bullets as a demon, dispatches the Leviathan but before she can leave, she is attacked by two demons working for Crowley. They inform her that "the King of Hell will see you now."
8.01 We Need to Talk About Kevin
When Sam starts to tell Dean why he quit hunting in the last year, he mentions Crowley shipping off Meg to "parts unknown."
8.17 Goodbye Stranger
- "I miss the simplicity. I was bad. You were good. Life was easier. Now it's all so messy. I'm kind of good, which sucks. And you're kind of bad -- which is actually all manner of hot. We survive this... I'm gonna order some pizza and we're gonna move some furniture around. You understand?"
Having figured out that the angel tablet is in one of Lucifer's Crypts, Crowley tortures Meg for their locations as she knows where they are from her time with Azazel. Meg gives general locations, lying that she doesn't know exactly where they are to buy herself time to figure out a way to escape. During this time, Crowley also has her hair dyed blonde, something she hates. Eventually Castiel, who is searching as well, finds out her location from a demon he captured and rescues her. When Sam and Dean find her tied up, she relates he annoyance that they never searched for her.
After the rescue, Meg explains what Crowley wants and offers to lead them to the correct crypt. The group takes her to the location of the latest person Crowley had a demon possess in his search who has a full-scale model of the town and Meg is able to point out the location to them. While Sam and Dean try to figure out what is now there, Castiel bandages Meg's wounds which have started to fester. Meg flirts with him about the time he kissed her (the Pizza Man) and indicates that she has feelings for him, telling him subtly that she wants to have sex with him if they survive retrieving the angel tablet, which he initially doesn't get, but accepts as he begins to understand.
After finding out that the crypt is located beneath a warehouse, the group travels there and Dean leaves Meg and Sam outside to guard the building while he and Castiel search. Meg and Sam demon-proof the exterior and Meg questions him about what he did for the year, telling him that from the time she possessed him she understands that he really wants a normal life. When Sam explains what happened, Meg initially makes fun of him for stopping when he hit a dog, but shows understanding about how falling for someone can change your life and refers to Amelia as a unicorn. Two demons show up and attack and in the fight that follows, Meg kills one with her angel blade, but Crowley himself soon appears. Meg tells Sam to find Dean while she holds Crowley off. Crowley tries to convince Meg to turn on the Winchesters, telling her about their plan to kill him and seal the Gates of Hell and trap all demons, but Meg tells him the idea that he will be killed alone has convinced her of their plan and tries to fight him. Meg proves no match for Crowley and taunts him when she sees Sam and Dean starting to drive away without Castiel who she figures has the tablet. Meg stabs Crowley in the shoulder with her blade, injuring him slightly. In retaliation, Crowley stabs Meg with a blade of his own, killing her while Sam and Dean watch, horrified, as they drive away.
9.03 I'm No Angel
Castiel uses the name "Clarence" as an alias when he is trying to lay low from other angels. When Dean tells Sam this, Sam recalls that "Clarence" was the nickname Meg had for Castiel.
15.13 Destiny's Child
In the Empty, the Cosmic Entity greets Castiel with Meg's trademark "Hello, Clarence," taking on her form. Initially mistaking the Cosmic Entity for Meg herself, Castiel quickly deduces the truth. The Cosmic Entity explains that it chose Meg's form due to Castiel looking for the demon Ruby and continues to call him Clarence as Meg did.
Sam encounters the Cosmic Entity, once again using Meg's form, in Death's Library. Sam is confused by the being's appearance, but it explains that the real Meg is still dead and it is just borrowing her face due to its lack of one.
