Lucifer is still in the hole with Michael the Arch Angel. What you see of Lucifer in Season 7 are Sam's hallucinations due to the torture his soul took while being in the hole with Lucifer and Michael. Sam was cured of his madness because the reborn Castiel took it into himself, healing Sam but causing himself great harm.

Actually it's never stated that demons go back to hell when they die. They do go back to hell when they're exorcised, and since yellow eyes was killed we haven't seen him except for flashbacks and such. Vampires and pretty much all other monsters go to purgatory when they die. It's never stated if angels go anywhere when they die, I believe they simply ...

Supernatural is inspired from several folk lore, legends, myths and a creative team. So most of it is born out of the existing myths out there. Of course, the team goes on to make some stuff of their own. The thing is, Supernatural borrows from myths all over the world. The salt thing and devil's trap are myths that exist. Though I wouldn't worry about the ...

From Supernatural Wiki Lilith is able to make deals herself and is bound by the same rules as a Crossroads Demon in making them, however, she claims a deal with her will take a sexual act instead of a kiss, but this may simply be her preference. As far as I remember, she explicitly tells Sam that this deal needs to be consummated instead of the usual ...

There are multiple references to God abandoning His post and leaving Heaven and the angels, but there haven't been any appearances or messages from Him as far as I can tell. Heaven has just been in turmoil and getting worse. I can't say too much more without revealing spoilers, of which there are many. The showrunners have kept a decent level of quality, ...

"The first seal shall be broken when a righteous man sheds blood in Hell." When John dies, he goes to hell where he is tortured everyday by Alastair so that he tortures other souls to get himself off the rack. Later Alastair, reveals to Dean that his father never broke, i.e. never accepted his deal. However, Dean succumbed and gave in to Alastair in just ...

Sam loses his powers whenever he stops drinking demon blood. Bobby and Dean made him go through a detox in order to get all of the demon blood out of him. It looks like this happened some time in season 4 after Dean came back. However in at least one episode Sam intentially drank demon blood for one reason or another and ends up going through detox again. ...

I thinkt he intention was to highlight the purity of the angels. They won't/can't take a body without it willfully giving up it's body. Even Lucifer has to have his vessel say yes. In Castiel's case we are shown that he had his vessel go through several "trust buidling" exercises to get him to say yes. Lucifer, however, preyed on the vessel's ...

This is a general description of the character known in the book by Washington Irving. In this excerpt from Wikipedia, it says: The "Legend" relates the tale of Ichabod Crane, a lean, lanky and extremely superstitious So, all-in-all, this is just his description. It really has nothing to do with the TV show about Sleepy Hollow or anything of the sort. ...

The angels brought him back, body and all - which apparently they can do. You correctly point out that he was cremated by his brothers, Sam and Dean. In Point of No Return we see his return: He awakens in the ground near where his funeral pyre was. Castiel brings him to Bobby's house where he converses with Sam and Dean ...

Based on the information I've seen, Meg is just known as Meg despite having transferred herself to other people after her first known host, Meg Masters. It seems to be unknown if she has any other name. The demon is referred to as Meg after the name of the host in which she first appears, Meg Masters. Ref: Supernatural Wiki - Meg Many demons are ...

It is never said where Angels go. The same with Demons but all supernatural beings except for Ghosts go to Purgatory. I'm pretty sure Ghosts go to Heaven or stop existing all together. Now, when you kill something in Purgatory, I believe it just stops existing all together.

Although initially, these special children were candidates for leading an army of demons in a war against humanity and God, Azazel's true goal was to create a suitable vessel for Lucifer when he returned. http://supernatural.wikia.com/wiki/Special_children

It was explained in this conversation: Sam Winchester: But after, we're gonna meet up, right? Use the gun together, right? [pause] Sam Winchester: You're leaving again, aren't you? You still wanna go after the demon alone? You know, I don't get you. You can't treat us like this. John Winchester: Like what? Sam Winchester: Like children! John ...

Unknown. This is similar to how we don't know where demons go, or where someone killed in Purgatory goes. We know when they die they don't go back to heaven (which was obvious from the on-going war in heaven). We know that beings can only go to Purgatory if they have a soul. However, from The Man Who Would Be King: CASTIEL You want to make a deal? With ...

You're actually pretty spot on with your assessment of the beginning of the series. However, a look at Wikipedia's Supernatural entry gives us some insight: According to creator Eric Kripke, the show originally was intended to focus on the weekly monsters, with Sam and Dean Winchester merely being "an engine to get us in and out of different horror ...

That is an excellent question. I know no definite answer and I fear it won't get resolved just like other plotholes (The Colt for example, where the hell did it go?? Many situations where this little thing could've saved the day). My thoughts when watching this episode: Michael is dead, killed by Lucifer inside the cage after Sam got saved because the two ...

tl;dr: We really don't know, and we probably never will. Lucifer's comment is too vague and open to interpretation to be of any real use. I go into a lot of details about this in my answer on Sci-Fi & Fantasy, but the short answer is, we just don't have enough information to pin down the exact list that Lucifer is talking about. Lucifer actually ...

If you assume God's omnipotence/omniscience to be a given, why does he communicate with anyone at all? Why does he use his voice, or even English? Why does he need a physical representation? Also, why do we (adults) use simple language when we talk to a child, when we ourselves are smarter than that? Because it's what the other person is capable of ...

Opinion, but I think it's just a random event. It fits a pattern: the recap they almost always do has the THEN header. The episode is labeled NOW, and the rare preview is labeled SOON. I don't think there's anything special; they just chose for whatever reason to preview the rest of the season. I've noticed they don't only preview the next episode, but ...

I think because during the time on tv the show was possibly on a break or hiatus. I was wondering the same thing so I think they posted the preview and the soon message so fans wouldn't think the show was over or something. Also possibly to just keep the viewers locked in because some people get bored of the same story line that lasts forever.

I think of the "possession" either demonic or angelic as a very intimate thing. To have them inside your body and mind with access to your memories and thoughts. As such a demonic possession is almost a form of rape, whereas the angels have a much more loving relationships with their hosts. That's not to say that an angel can't attempt to manipulate the ...

TLDR: His goal was to release Lucifer, which required breaking the Seals. To do this, he needed two things. Firstly, he needed to raise Lilith, as her death was the final scene. Secondly, he needed to raise a vessel for Lucifer to possess when he was finally released. Long Answer: In the Season 4 finale, Lucifer Rising, we see Azazel possessing a priest ...

There is the original (and misleading) connection, as stated in Season 2, and then the true connection, as stated in Seasons 4/5. Season 2: Throughout this season we learn more and more about these special children. At first it seemed that all their parents had been burned by the Yellowed Eyed Demon (aka Azazel), but it soon becomes clear there are ...

Eric Kripke has said in interviews that he knew he wanted a classic 1960s American muscle car and was originally going to go with a 1965 Mustang, but his neighbour convinced him that the Impala would be a better choice because "you can put a body in the trunk" and "when people stop next to it at the lights, they lock their doors.

It's either a plot hole (annoyingly, again..like with Adam).. Or I also agree about it only being a window to the cage, but then when he's inside why didn't it revert back with Michael? Maybe it will.. This could be a great opportunity to resolve the Adam plot hole. I hope they don't screw it up. I'm getting tired of with the length they've been on air with ...

Try the old school cartoon too. He was a skinny superstitious guy with a big nose in the disney cartoon. Don't think Johnny Depp or the new tv series. Think of the old school disney cartoon or actual legend. :)
