And that is how we enter in to Season Twelve.

Mary and the boys struggle throughout this season with the emotional battle of Mary wanting to fight with her sons, and Sam and Dean not wanting their mother to fight because they just got her back and don’t want to lose her again. While Mary, Dean, Sam and Castiel are preoccupied with the British Men of Letters, Crowley discovers Lucifer has taken over the body of a well-known rock star, Vince Vicente.
While the Winchester family is reunited and back to fighting supernatural crime, Castiel teams up with an unlikely partner to catch Lucifer, Crowley. As Lucifer is more than please with the power he has as a rock star and the willingness of his fans to do whatever he wants, he soon learns that he wants even more power. His search for a new shell and hunger for power lands him in the President of the United States body, taking over the White House. Not only did Lucifer manage to take over the vessel of the most powerful man in the country, he also impregnated the President’s aid, Kelly Kline, with his son, the son of Lucifer.
When the hunt for Lucifer becomes to much for Castiel and Crowley to handle on their own, they receive aid from Sam, Dean, and Rowena to take down the Dark Lord. This lands Sam and Dean in hot water, and they are forced to make a deal that could be life or death for one of the Winchesters. As the season goes on and the Winchester family is reunited Castiel proves his loyalty to the family when he broke a deal that was bound in blood, putting everyone around him in danger of the grave consequences.
Mary eventually takes off on her own to fight supernatural crime, which the boys think she is doing by herself. Little do they know their mother has been working alongside the British Men of Letters, the same group who tried to kill Sam earlier in the season. The truth is revealed when the British Men of Letters true intentions come out and Mary is double-crossed. Sam and Dean realize they only have each other for support as the American Hunters and the British Men of Letters battle to the end
The season comes to an end over the battle of Lucifer’s child. Sam, Dean, and Castiel fight for control over the unborn child.
