Eventually [[Dean]] orders [[Death]] to kill [[Castiel]], but Castiel breaks the bonds tying Death to their will and then flees. Instead of turning on them, Death admonishes Dean for dropping the ball regarding the souls, but declares that Castiel's arrogance is annoying and decides to help them yet again. He tells Dean that the things Castiel absorbed can be returned to Purgatory: they just have to open another door, and convince Castiel to give up his new power. So, Death agrees to create another eclipse at 3:59 AM on Sunday.

==Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in Lore==
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are described in the last book of the New Testament of the Bible, called the Book of Revelation, at the beginning of Chapter 6. The chapter tells of a scroll in God's right hand that is sealed with seven seals, and when Jesus Christ opens the first four of the seven seals, four beings are summoned forth. They ride on white, red, black, and pale horses and, although some interpretations differ, the four riders are commonly seen as symbolizing Conquest, War, Famine and Death, respectively<ref>[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Horsemen_of_the_Apocalypse Wikipedia.org]</ref> The show substitutes Pestilence for the biblical horseman Conquest.
==Trivia==
* [[Anna Milton]] states that the Horsemen will revert back to their "day jobs" without [[Lucifer]].<ref name="five13">[[5.13 The Song Remains the Same]]</ref>
* The "human [[soul]] in the briefcase" device is a reference to the urban legend of the 1994 movie ''[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110912/ Pulp Fiction]'' where the mysterious shining object in the briefcase (which is never seen or identified) is said to be the soul of Marsellus Wallace.
