Keep it. Dean's covered. Death's own. Kills... golly, demons and angels and reapers and rumor has it... the very thing itself.

Crowley, 5.21 Two Minutes to Midnight


This weapon first appears as a sickle in Alastair's possession[1] He claimed that Death, 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. This is confirmed when Dean uses the scythe on Death to protect Sam. The scythe crumbles to dust with its master afterwards.

4.15 Death Takes a Holiday

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.

10.23 Brother's Keeper

After Dean is ready to kill Sam, Death gives him his scythe to do the job. At the last moment, Dean turns the scythe on Death himself, impaling him through the side, killing him. When Death crumbles to dust, so does his scythe.

13.05 Advanced Thanatology

Billie, having taken on the mantle of Death, appears before Dean clad in black holding a new scythe. After teleporting herself and Dean to her reading room, she places the scythe against a wall away from Dean, noting she knows better than to just leave it lying around in his close vicinity.
