===[[4.18 The Monster at the End of This Book]]===
===[[4.22 Lucifer Rising]]===
Zachariah and [[Castiel]] hold [[Dean]] hostage in preparation for the [[Apocalypse]]. When Dean confronts Zachariah, he finally admits that they don't want to stop [[Lilith]] from breaking the last seal, which will free Lucifer. The upper caste of angels wants the Apocalypse to begin in order to defeat Hell and bring about paradise on Earth. Zachariah also reveals that Dean's role will be to kill [[Lucifer]] after the [[Apocalypse]] happens. He states that Sam also has a part to play and nudges him in the intended direction by leaving Sam a fake and hurtful voice mail purportedly from Dean to manipulate him.
Later, Castiel tries to help Dean escape in an effort to stop Sam killing Lilith, and unknowingly breaking the final seal. Zachariah arrives to stop him, but Castiel uses a sigil drawn in his own blood to send Zachariah away.
Zachariah is seen drinking at a bar and talking to a man named Stuart. He discusses his failure at work (getting [[Sam]] and [[Dean]] to consent) and his subsequent firing. Zachariah's boss, [[Michael]], appears, burning out the eyes of Stuart and the bartender in doing so. He gives Zachariah one more chance to convince [[Dean]]; Zachariah is overjoyed to accept and leaves the bar singing "When the Saints Go Marching In." The plan involves resurrecting Sam and Dean's half-brother [[Adam Milligan]] to either act as [[Michael]]'s [[vessel]] or force Dean's consent. Adam's resurrection is interrupted by Castiel, who brings Adam to the Winchesters and hides him from the angels.
Later, Zachariah appears to [[Adam]] in a dream talking about their plan and how he cannot trust the Winchesters. Adam gives up his location and disappears with Zachariah. [[Castiel]] leads Sam and Dean to the [[Green Room]] where Zachariah has hidden Adam. It is located in an abandoned muffler factory in Van Nuys, California. While in the [[Green Room]] with Adam, Zachariah reveals the truth about why they brought back Adam and how they are expecting Dean to come and consent. Meanwhile, [[Castiel]] enters the factory and clears the way for Sam and Dean by killing one angel and banishing four others (along with himself). Sam and Dean enter the shed containing the Green Room and Zachariah overpowers them. Zachariah then tortures [[Sam]] and [[Adam]] until [[Dean]] says "Yes." Thrilled, Zachariah calls [[Michael]] to come down to his [[vessel]], Dean. Dean then manipulates Zachariah, telling him that Michael cannot enter Dean's body unless he can guarantee the safety of his loved ones and until Zachariah is dead. Angry, Zachariah grabs hold of Dean, telling him "Michael's not going to kill me." However, Dean informs him that ''he'' will, pulls out a hidden [[angel blade]] , and stabs Zachariah through the chin and out the top of his head, killing him in an explosive burst of light that flings Dean into a wall. Zachariah's body is last seen leaning against a wall before the Green Room disappears, his body along with it. ===[[14.13 Lebanon]]===In an alternate timeline caused by [[John Winchester]] getting pulled from 2003, Zachariah arrives in [[Lebanon, Kansas]], with the alternate [[Castiel]] to investigate. Walking into a nearby restaurant, Zachariah demands to know who has been messing with time, causing the patrons to think he's nuts after he claims to be from [[Heaven]]. Giving one final warning, Zachariah threatens to have Castiel murder them all if someone does not answer, causing Castiel displays his wings. The effects of Castiel displaying his wings draws the attention of [[Sam]] and [[Dean]] from outside, prompting them to enter the restaurant to investigate, where they are shocked to find Zachariah. Zachariah is equally shocked to see the Winchesters, commenting that Heaven had big plans for the brothers before their father disappeared. Zachariah quickly realizes that the Winchesters are responsible for what happened and orders Castiel to kill them. As Castiel takes on Dean, Zachariah begins choking Sam, demanding to know what he did. Zachariah taunts Sam, moving closer as he demands that Sam speak. Zachariah doesn't notice Sam draw an [[angel blade]] from his belt as he moves closer. Once Zachariah is in his face, Sam stabs him in the heart with the angel blade, killing him. After John is returned to his own time, events return to normal, erasing the alternate timeline Zachariah from existence.
