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!

Crowley and Castiel, 5.21 Two Minutes to Midnight


This weapon first appears in Alastair's possession[1] He claimed that an old friend lent it to him. According to Crowley, this scythe can kill reapers, demons and angels[2] Crowley also told Dean and Sam that according to current rumors, this weapon can kill Death. Although this seems highly unlikely due to the fact that Death himself manufactured it, and as a Horseman, he is immortal. Death's ambivalence toward Lucifer's plans suggests that he would not have willingly given the scythe up to further the breaking of the seals.


4.15 Death Takes a Holiday

Alastair preparing to kill a reaper with Death's scythe.

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!

Alastair, 4.15 Death Takes a Holiday

First appearance of the scythe and reference to Death in the series. Alastair hints that it belongs to Death and uses it to kill one of the two reapers in an attempt to break one of the 66 Seals.

5.21 Two Minutes to Midnight

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.
