– Hester, 7.21 Reading Is Fundamental
Hester descends to Earth alongside Inias to secure the new prophet, Kevin Tran; only to find him being guarded by Meg. Hester slams the demon against a wall out of disgust. Meg retaliates by slicing Inias' hand with an angel blade, outraging Hester. Castiel appears and attempts to calm his former comrades.
Inias is glad to see his old captain again, but Hester becomes aggressive when she realises Castiel has lost his mind; the result of absorbing Sam's torment. Before they can seize Kevin, however, Dean uses an Enochian banishing symbol to send the angels away.
Hester later appears at Rufus' cabin with Inias and other unnamed angels for backup. Inias seeks a peaceful resolution but Hester loses her temper and beats Castiel before threatening him with her blade. Inias begs her to spare Castiel, stating that they've lost enough angels already, but she tries to kill Castiel with an Angel Sword regardless.
Before she can stab Castiel, Meg stabs Hester from behind with an Angel Sword of her own, killing Hester and saving Castiel.
- Hester is shown to be unusually volatile for an angel, displaying flashes of anger and emotional instability. This is most apparent whilst attacking Castiel, where Hester appears to be overwhelmed by the current conditions she and the other angels find themselves in after the apocalypse.
