With the help of Barthamus' operatives, a demon named Grab and a girl named Alice who sold her soul to him, they find and make off with the trunk, after Luther kills Grab. When Luther attacks Sam, Dean, and Alice, he has them open the trunk to see the bones. Luther explains that he sold his soul to Barthamus for his sons life, only for his son to drown later on. Barthamus said there was nothing he could do about it. To keep himself from being killed, he made his property a place he could never die on. Barthamus shows up and beheads Luther, killing him and grabbing Alice. When he tells her to grab his bones, she instead lights them, killing him and destroying the tracking spell in the process.
- Mary Winchester says that Jack is supposed to be six months old, and is confused as to why he looks all grown up. Considering Jack was born May 18, 2017, which was subsequently the date of the season 12 finale, this would put the Winchesters at November or early December in their timeline.

Split Timeline: 1973 (Mary refuses Azazel's deal)
- John remains dead and Mary continues her life as a Campbell.
- Dean and Sam Winchester are never born.
- Death was locked away and Reapers were enslaved by angels.
- Michael's and Lucifer's war caused an EMP type of blast to occur over North America, frying all technology and power plants.
- Michael fights and kills Lucifer.
- The world falls into ruin in a war between demons and angels with humans fighting on the sidelines. One of the remaining humans in Bobby Singer.

Split Timeline: 2014 (The Apocalypse)
- It is now five years into the Apocalypse which had inadvertently been started by Sam when he accidentally released Lucifer. By now Earth is a wreck, humanity is almost extinct, and many millions of humans are infected with the Croatoan Virus. Those uninfected, including a human Castiel, remain isolated and in hiding. Dean is flung into this future by the angel Zachariah so Dean can witness what happens when he refuses to allow the Archangel Michael to use him to defeat Lucifer. As a result, Dean is tormented when he witnesses his future self being murdered - By none other than Lucifer, who has possessed Dean's own brother Sam.
Split Timeline: 2017 (Fiona's ghost)
- Gavin fails to have one final conversation with Fiona because Abaddon kidnaps him. When Fiona fails to find Gavin, she assumes he's leaving without her and stows away on board his ship, where she suffers rape and torture by his crew which is encouraged by the teach on board. She dies when the ship sinks and her locket is salvaged from the wreckage. Her spirit returns in 2017 and kills various teachers in retaliation to what her own teacher did on board the ship.
[Note: This timeline is undone when Gavin returns to 1723, allows Fiona to get on board the ship, and stays with her and protects her, preventing her from becoming a vengeful spirit. Fiona's victims in 2017 return to life, as if they never died.]
Split Timeline: 2019 (John Winchester in 2019)
- Because of Dean's attempt to use the Baozhu to get rid of the Apocalypse World Michael, he inadvertently pulls John Winchester forward in time to 2019 from 2003. As a result, John's disappearance from the past results in Sam never returning to hunting and becoming an Internet famous corporate lawyer, Dean remaining a hunter but wanted by the police, Castiel still an unquestioning and loyal soldier of Heaven, Zachariah still alive and Mary Winchester still dead as the war with the Darkness never happened. Additionally, the Apocalypse never happened in this timeline with Zachariah noting that Heaven had "big plans" for the Winchesters that were foiled by John's disappearance.
[Note: This timeline is undone when John returns to 2003, seemingly thinking that his experience was only a great dream. With John returned to his own time, all of the changes made by his disappearance are undone.]
