In 2018, Rowena began killing people and their [[reapers]] to get [[Death]]'s attention, as she blamed herself for Crowley's death and the path that her abandonment led him down in life. During this, the reaper [[Jessica]] reveals that in the book [[Death]] keeps on her, it is written that she will die by Sam Winchester's hand. While death refused to bring Crowley back, the experience ended with Rowena deciding that working for the greater good will be her redemption. She subsequently aided the Winchesters in their efforts to return to [[Apocalypse World]] and on occasions when they needed her expertise on a situation or case.
In 2019, after the release of the [[Hell Ghosts]] upon the world, Rowena chose to sacrifice herself to save the world by using her own body to cast all of the souls and demons back into Hell. At Rowena's request, and with great reluctance, Sam was indeed the one who fatally stabbed Rowena. Following Rowena's death, Sam inherited her magical stash as
its suggested that she intended.
===[[15.06 Golden Time]]===
After Rowena's death, a family of witches
seek to find Rowena's magical stash for themselves, but [[Jacinda]] is killed by a powerful [[curse]] Rowena put on her flat to protect it.
Following the return of [[Eileen Leahy]] as a [[ghost]], Dean suggests creating another Soul Catcher and sends Sam to Rowena's Flat to find her stash, suggesting that Sam can make one as he was Rowena's protégé. With the help of Eileen, Sam finds Rowena's magical stash, including journals of her spellwork throughout her life and becomes emotional at the reminder of his dead friend.
Amongst Rowena's journals, Sam finds a [[resurrection]] spell Rowena had been creating to bring [[Mary Winchester]] back, one that Sam realizes can be used to bring back Eileen. Sam is subsequently captured by the remaining two witches who suggest that Rowena specifically excluded Sam from being harmed by the curse because she wanted him to inherit her magical stash once she was gone. Sam is later able to kill the [[Witch Mother]] with a spell Rowena taught him and use Rowena's resurrection spell to bring back Eileen.
