~ Crowley about Faustian Deals

Crowley is a main antagonist appearing on the TV series Supernatural. He is the most recurring villain of the series. He is played by Mark Sheppard.


Season 5

Crowley is first mentioned in the Season 5 episode "The Real Ghostbusters" as being the demon to whom Lilith handed the Colt over after obtaining the weapon from Bela Talbot, in addition to possibly being Lilith's lover.

Crowley first appears in the subsequent episode "Abandon All Hope...," where Dean and Sam Winchester inflitrate his mansion on a mission to retrieve the Colt from him. They corner Crowley but are captured by two of Crowley's henchmen. Crowley draws the Colt and proceeds to shoot the henchmen dead, then leads the Winchesters into his office. He offers to give the Colt to the Winchesters so they can kill Lucifer, stating that Lucifer will eradicate all demons after he wipes out humans. Crowley then disappears to what he calls "all points nowhere."

Crowley a la Mark Sheppard

Crowley always ready to make a deal.

Crowley returns in "The Devil You Know," suddenly appearing in the Impala's backseat. After avoiding being stabbed by an irate Sam (who initially believes that Crowley gave them the Colt knowing it wouldn't work on Lucifer), Crowley reveals that Lucifer knows he (Crowley) wants him dead and that he (Crowley) has been in hiding for the past several months. He then offers to help the Winchesters obtain the remaining two Horsemen rings and aids Dean in capturing Brady, Pestilence's servant. Later, when a hellhound approaches, Crowley disappears but returns shortly after with his own hellhound, whom he sics on the other hellhound to allow the Winchesters to escape with Brady. At the end of the episode, Crowley approaches Bobby Singer with an offer to reveal Death's location in exchange for Bobby's soul.

In "Two Minutes to Midnight," Crowley appears just after Bobby reveals Death's location to the Winchesters and Castiel, and Bobby and Crowley's deal comes to light (along with the fact that the two men kissed to seal the deal). Crowley reveals that he bought Bobby's soul as leverage against the Winchesters. Later, Crowley gives Dean Death's scythe so he can use it to kill Death, and accompanies Dean to Chicago, where Death currently is. Crowley finds the Horseman in a restaurant.

Season 6

Crowley serves as one of the two main antagonists of the season (along with Raphael).

Season 7

After the events of season 6, Crowley goes into hiding from the new God, Castiel, only to be found soon afterwards. Instead of killing the king of hell, Castiel lets Crowley continue his work in hell under his supervision stating he still needs a place to punish his enemies. Crowley reluctantly agrees. After Castiel is dethroned, so to speak, and the Leviathans are set free, Crowley tries to make an alliance with their leader, Dick Roman, only to be rejected and have his entire race threatened. Fearing for his life, Crowley makes an uneasy alliance with the winchesters and forgiving the now harmless Castiel for enslaving him. The season ends with Dick Roman's death and Crowley kidnapping the prophet Kevin Tran.

Season 8

Crowley is the main antagonist of the season. In "Clip Show," Crowley begins killing the people Sam and Dean saved from supernatural menaces over the years, using Chuck Shurley's Supernatural books to find said people.

In "Sacrifice," Crowley goes on a date with Jody Mills, a friend of the Winchesters. When Jody begins choking on her own blood as a result of a hexbag made by Crowley, the Winchesters call Crowley and agree to stand down if he agrees to stop killing people they've saved. Later, Crowley meets with the Winchesters at Singer Scrap Yard, where Crowley displays an extremely long contract. Dean seizes the opportunity to handcuff Crowley to himself with shackles bearing a devil's trap, preventing Crowley from abandoning his human host. Dean and Sam then take Crowley to an abandoned church, intending to use him as the third and final trial to close Hell forever (said trial calls for the one completing the trials to cure a demon). Crowley is bound to a chair, and Sam regularly injects him with his purified blood. Crowley manages to send out a message for help, and Abaddon arrives. However rather than help Abaddon tries to kill Crowley so she can take the throne. Following Sam scaring Abaddon off, he continues the process and it beguins to work. As Crowley starts to become human he beguins expressing regret for his actions, asking Sam where does he start to confess? He also reveals he has always had a desire to be respected and loved, implying all his power grabbing and egocentric actions are drived from this desire being twisted and perverted by his transfomation into a demon. However Dean stops Sam before he can fully cure Crowley, as he's discovered the process will cause Sam to die. Leaving it unclear if Crowley will keep his new found humanity or loose it.
