Season 9Edit

After hunter Dean Winchester came to town, he visited one of Reverend Myers' services where Garth introduced him to Russ and Jobah. Russ took part in an awkward dinner with Dean and afterwards attempted to intimidate the hunter into leaving with Jobah before being interrupted by Garth.

After Sam discovers Garth and Bess missing, he is ambushed by Russ and Jobah with Russ knocking him out with a tire iron. After Sam awakens, Russ is sent to guard the perimeter. Smelling Dean, Russ tracks the scent only to discover Dean's jacket laying on a fence. As Russ stares at it in confusion, Dean comes up from behind him and stabs Russ through the heart from behind with a silver knife, killing him. Dean then dons Russ' jacket to mask his scent, allowing him to sneak up on Jobah and Joy Myers. Dean kills them both and saves Sam, Garth, and Bess.
