Season Four[edit | edit source]

On October 30th 2008, Dean and Sam investigated the mysterious death of a man named Luke Wallace, who had choked to death on razor blades allegedly concealed within Halloween candy. After finding a hex bag at the Wallace residence, they deduced that a witch was at work. Dean decided to stake out the Wallace residence the following day, during which time he ate copious amounts of candy. They found that the witch was a blonde-haired high school student named Tracy Davis who sought to conjure up the essence of Samhain, which would also break one of the sixty-six Seals of Lilith. Dean met with Castiel and another angel named Uriel, who were instructed to destroy the entire town of 1,214 people to prevent the seal from being broken. Dean convinced them to hold off until Sam and he had a chance to find and destroy the witch. The plan failed and Tracy succeeded in resurrecting Samhain. Samhain went to a cemetery where he reanimated the corpses and summoned ghosts to slaughter teenagers who were having a Halloween party. Dean dispatched a ghost and vanquished several zombies while Sam dealt with Samhain. After everything was said and done, he had a private chat with Castiel, who revealed that his orders were to follow Dean's instructions during this affair, to see if he was battle ready for the coming Apocalypse. Dean told him that in the face of seeing an entire town wiped off the face of the map, he would make the exact same decision all over again. Castiel told him that he secretly prayed that this would be his decision. (4x07: "It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester")
