Supernatural Season 5 Episodes

22 Episodes 2009 - 2010

The fifth season of Supernatural finds Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) in a race against time to prevent the apocalypse. Destroying the Gates of Hell has certainly brought about dire consequences, and will bring much more should the brothers fail to collect the rings of the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse. The rings would send Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) back to hell permanently, but getting them means going up against some seriously powerful beings, including Death (Julian Richings) himself, as well as agreeing to become a willing vessel for the archangel Michael. As usual, the price is too high to bear, for whichever man becomes Michael's vessel will be forced to battle with Lucifer for all eternity.
