Meg!Demon in [[2.14 Born Under a Bad Sign]]
'''Dean:''' I saw Hellraiser, I get the gist.
'''Ruby:''' Actually, they got it pretty right, except for all the custom leather.
Hell in ''Supernatural'', is the place or punishment and pain of the afterlife. Human souls who are sent to Hell are tormented until thier humanity is stripped away and they become demons ([[3.09 Malleus Maleficarum]]).
Dean spends four months in Earth time in hell, but he reports that time passes differently there, and for him it was more like forty years ([[4.10 Heaven And Hell]]
Some demons appear to be able to move freely between Hell and the mortal realm eg [[Azazael]],[[Alistair]].
When a demon is exorcised, it returns to hell. The [[Colt]] actually kills, as in obliterates, a demon.
During his time in Hell, Dean was tortured and each 'day' his wounds would be healed, and [[Alistair]] would offer to stop it, if dean would become a torturer of souls himself. After '30 years' Dean accepted the offer and started torturing souls.
'''Dean:''' I enjoyed it, Sam. they took me off the rack, and I tortured souls, and I liked it. All those years; all that pain. Finally getting to deal some out yourself...I didn't care who they put in front of me, because that pain I felt, that just slipped away. No matter how many people I save, I can't change that. I can't fill this hole. Not ever.
