3.03 Bad Day at Black Rock
A call comes to John's cell phone, which Dean has kept charged. The caller informs them that there has been break-in at a storage locker belonging to "Edgar Cayce." Sam and Dean investigate, and find the storage area guarded against demons with a devil's trap, and a trip wire which fires a rifle propped up on a warthog's skull. Someone has broken in and been hit by the shotgun; blood is on the floor.
In the lock-up is an extensive weapons cache, including landmines. The brothers also find mementos from their childhood. There is a huge collection of curse boxes, built by Bobby, but one is missing.
5.01 Sympathy for the Devil
Zachariah lures Dean and Sam to the lock-up by implanting a fake vision in Chuck's head. Chuck then sends one of his fans, Becky Rosen, out to tell Sam and Dean about his vision, that the "angels have lost the Michael Sword" and that it is to be found "in a castle, on a hill made of 42 dogs." Dean recognizes this as a reference to the lock-up, located at Castle Storage, 42 Rover Hill. The brothers make their way there, and find dead demons and Zachariah inside. The angel tries to torture and coerce Dean into becoming the Michael's vessel, his "sword," but Castiel intervenes, killing the other two angels and forcing Zachariah to heal Sam and Dean and leave. Castiel then brands Sam and Dean's ribs with Enochian sigils to hide them from both angels and demons and leaves.
9.11 First Born
Following a clue in John's Journal, Dean and Crowley visit the lock-up looking for information on a case that John worked where he exorcised a demon who worked for Abaddon and knew about the First Blade. Dean finds a file on the case which reveals that John did hunt a demon who mentioned that with a hunter named Tara. Dean and Crowley then leave to find Tara.
- In 14.11 Damaged Goods, Mary Winchester is shown to have a lock-up of her own with many similarities to John's, including a shotgun booby-trap.
