Two salty hunters, one half-angel kid, and a dude that just came back from the dead, again. Team Free Will 2.0

Team Free Will is a nickname made up by Dean after time traveling back from 1978 to 2010.


At the time, the team consisted only of "one ex-blood junkie, one drop-out with six bucks to his name, and Mr. Comatose", which were Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester, and Castiel, respectively.

The nicknames were based on Sam's former demon blood addiction, Dean's intentional lack of education, and Castiel's state of unconsciousness, as a result from time traveling.

Dean did not use the name of this team for a number of years, though he continued to fight for free will and object any outside force that tried to control him or his teammates.

In 2017, when Castiel began to doubt his own importance, Dean reminded him that he, Sam and Dean were members of Team Free Will.

After Castiel's resurrection, Dean declared Team Free Will 2.0 to be "two salty hunters, one half-angel kid and a dude who just came back from the dead, again." Following the rescue of Mary Winchester and Jack from Apocalypse World, Team Free Will 2.0 are seen hunting werewolves together, indicating that they became a full-time hunting team following their reunion. Months later, they worked together on a regular gorgon hunt with the help of Rowena MacLeod.

However, Team Free Will 2.0 is broken when Jack accidentally kills Mary Winchester in his soulless state. Jack becomes hunted by the Winchesters, particularly Dean, for his actions and the threat he poses. After Dean refuses to kill Jack, Team Free Will 2.0 stands up to God himself, only to have God kill Jack and unleash chaos upon the world in retaliation for their defiance. The remaining members, with the help of Rowena MacLeod, Arthur Ketch and the demon Belphegor, manage to stop God's plan, but the remainder of the team is broken when Castiel chooses to leave due to Dean's anger towards him and inability to forgive Castiel. The remaining members are later reunited after Dean makes amends with Castiel during a mission to Purgatory to get a Leviathan Blossom to trap God.

Team Free Will 2.0 is eventually reunited completely after Jack is resurrected by Billie with a plan that will allow Jack to become strong enough to kill God.
