Gog and Magog were primitive humanoid creatures made of rock and sand who became ancient warriors from Biblical lore.
At some point, Gog and Magog were created out of rock and sand and were part of a race of creatures thought wiped out during the Great Flood. Both received swords from an unknown deity. In ancient times, Gog and Magog became known as warriors who conquered and enslaved half of the Fertile Crescent. They were eventually bound by priest in "a place without a place and a time without a time."
Over the millennia since they were banished, Gog and Magog became legends mentioned in both the Bible and the Demon Tablet. In the legends, they were sometimes mentioned as brothers and sometimes as lands. The Seraphim Castiel heard rumors of them, but he didn't think they were actually human.
In late 2017, while reading the Demon Tablet, Prophet Donatello Redfield learned of Gog and Magog. Having been corrupted by the tablet's power, Donatello claimed that the hearts of Gog and Magog were part of a ritual to open a rift to Apocalypse World. Donatello provided Dean and Castiel with a summoning spell for Gog and Magog from the Demon Tablet, intending to have the two kill Dean and Castiel.
In a clearing, Castiel performed the spell and summoned Gog and Magog whose appearance amused Dean. The two wondered where Dean and Castiel's armies were for the battle to follow. Gog and Magog devolved into an argument that ended with them agreeing to finish after killing Dean and Castiel. Gog decided to fight Castiel while Magog would fight Dean.
The brothers quickly attacked Dean and Castiel, with Magog's Sword breaking Dean's angel blade quickly. As they fought Gog explained, translated by Castiel, that their blades were forged by a god. Dean fought with Magog, using his shattered angel blade to block Magog's blows, disarming him and then trying to strangle Magog. However, Magog quickly broke free of the hold, but Dean managed to trip Magog, retrieve Magog's Sword and decapitate him with it, killing Magog. At the same time, Castiel proved to be no match for Gog who disarmed Castiel and prepared to impale him with his sword, lamenting having to do so as he found Castiel to be very pretty. Before he could stab Castiel, Gog was stabbed through the back by Dean with Magog's Sword, killing him. Dean stated to Castiel "touched by God, made by a god, same thing" as an explanation for how he was able to kill them.
Examining Gog's body, Castiel discovered sand coming out of his wound and identified Gog and Magog as primitive beasts made out of rock and sand that Castiel had believed to have gone extinct during the Flood. As a result, they didn't have hearts and Dean and Castiel realized that Donatello had lied to them and tried to use Gog and Magog to kill them.

Gog and Magog in the Hebrew Bible may be individuals, peoples, or lands; a prophesied enemy nation of God's people according to the Book of Ezekiel, and according to Genesis, one of the nations descended from Japheth, son of Noah. In many Abrahamic religions eschatology, Gog and Magog depicted as "uncivilized, barbaric, and war-hunger race" that left only destruction across their path.
The Gog prophecy is meant to be fulfilled at the approach of what is called the "end of days", but not necessarily the end of the world. Jewish eschatology viewed Gog and Magog as enemies to be defeated by the Messiah, which will usher in the age of the Messiah. Christianity's interpretation is more starkly apocalyptic: making Gog and Magog allies of Satan against God at the end of the millennium, as can be read in the Book of Revelation.
A legend was attached to Gog and Magog by the time of the Roman period, that the Gates of Alexander were erected by Alexander the Great to repel the tribe from invading more civilized hemisphere of Old World.
- Actor Michael Jonsson who portrayed Gog, previously portrayed Yeager in the Season 5 episode The End.
- While in-show Gog and Magog were speaking Ancient Canaanite, the actors actually spoke in a twisted combination of Hebrew (in Biblical formation) and Arabic, two languages that bear many similarities to each other as well as to the many Semitic old tongues spoken in the Middle East millennia ago.
