[[ThePowerOfLove And Sam lowers his fist]]. He tells Dean that he's going to be okay. Then he takes out the rings and opens the pit. Before he can jump, Michael appears, and tells Sam to stop because [[YouCantFightFate he and his brother and destined to fight]]. But Sam ignores him, and [[HeroicSacrifice lets himself fall]]. Michael steps forward and grabs his arm, tries to pull him back, but Sam's weight is too much and he is dragged into the pit as well. The ground closes up, and Dean is [[EverybodysDeadDave left completely alone]]. Until he looks up, and there's Castiel, [[BackFromTheDead resurrected]] [[DeathIsCheap once again]] and restored to his angelic glory and promoted to a Seraphim. Cas touches Dean's face, and instantly it's healed. He brings Bobby back to life as well.
