===[[4.18 The Monster
At The End Of This Book]]===Following Sam's confrontation with [[Lilith]] and the arrival of Chuck's [[archangel]], Zachariah appears to [[Chuck Shurley]] after he has another vision. While it is not revealed what Chuck saw, he wants to warn Sam and Dean, but Zachariah tells him not to. Chuck threatens to kill himself, but Zachariah says they will only bring him back to life. In despair, Chuck asks what he should do. Zachariah replies "Do what you always do. Write." <br clear="all" /> [[image:Caszach.Jpg|300px|left|thumb|Zachariah alongside of Castiel.]]
===[[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
cast 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.
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
[[Angel Banishing Sigil|sigil ]] drawn in his own blood to send Zachariah away.

For The Devil]]===Zachariah arrives at Chuck's house with two other angels in an attempt to force Dean to come with them. However, he and the other angels are sent away as Dean has drawn the Angel Banishing Sigil in preparation for the angels' arrival. Zachariah and his associates then show up at [[John's Lock-up]]. The angel attempts to force Dean into giving permission to the archangel Michael to use him as a vessel in the fight against Lucifer. Dean refuses, so Zachariah proceeds to torment him and Sam until Dean changes his mind. However, Castiel appears and dispatches the other angels with an [[ Angel Killing Sword]]. Zachariah heals Sam and Dean, then flees.

===[[5.04 The End]]===
With Sam and Dean hidden by the [[Enochian
Sigils]] engraved on their ribs by Castiel, Zachariah employs fringe Christian groups to track down Dean. He sends him to 2014 to see the consequences of his refusal to become Michael's vessel. It is not clear whether this future is "true" or in some way altered by Zachariah in an effort to influence Dean's decision. Dean sees the devastation wrought by the [[Croatoan]] virus, the effect of the Apocalypse on himself, Castiel and others, and most importantly finds out that Sam has consented to be Lucifer's vessel. Following a disastrous encounter between [[Future!Dean]] and Lucifer, Zachariah brings Dean back to 2009. When Dean still refuses to be a vessel, Zachariah prepares to take him captive, but Castiel teleports Dean away in time.

===[[5.16 Dark Side
Of The Moon]]===When Sam and Dean are killed, Castiel warns them that Zachariah is looking for them in Heaven so that he can send them back to Earth and they can be made to consent to Michael and Lucifer. After searching for the brothers in the memories they relive in Heaven, Zachariah finds and traps them in a forest, but they are saved by [[Ash]]. When Ash gives them a secret path to the Garden, they wind up in another memory of Dean's and Zachariah appears. Zachariah begins tormenting the brothers with an altered version of their mother to make them give in. Joshua then appears and tells Zachariah to release the brothers or risk [[God]]'s wrath. Zachariah then departs.

===[[5.18 Point of No Return]]===
Zachariah is seen drinking at a bar and talking to a man named Stuart. He discusses his failure at work (
consenting Sam and Dean)and his 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 consent 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 |Adam]] 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 .
