After a gun fight in order to protect the book from the Styne Family , Sam later gave it to Rowena secretly in hope she could crack it and extract a spell that can be used to remove the Mark of Cain. Rowena revealed that only the codex of the witch Nadia could break the code and Sam tracked it down in the Werther Box in St. Louis, Missouri. Sam turned the codex over to Rowena, but also chained her so that she would only decode the cure before he destroyed the Book of the Damned to prevent Rowena for using it for herself.
Even with the help of the codex, Rowena proved unable to translate the Book of the Damned as the codex was coded too, so Sam called in Charlie to help with her IT skills and Castiel to watch over them. Even working together, neither Charlie nor Rowena could translate the Book of the Damned, so, overwhelmed, Charlie left with just her notes on the her work. Working privately, Charlie managed to figure out how to decipher the codex , but was interrupted by Eldon Frankenstein who was looking for the Book of the Damned.
Unwilling to give him her decoder or the Book of the Damned, which she didn't have, Charlie destroyed her Surface Tablet and with it her decoder, causing Eldon to kill her. However, Charlie was first able to email her decoder to Sam, which would enable him to crack the codex and through it the Book of the Damned.
After Sam received Charlie's email, Rowena was able to crack the Book of the Damned and use it to remove the Mark , inadvertently releasing the Darkness. Rowena then escaped with the Book of the Damned and the codex. Following her escape, Rowena began reading the Book of the Damned and stated that it was turning her into "a force of nature.
When Crowley started targeting her, Rowena attempted to flee, but was captured again by the Winchesters. However, while she possessed the codex and Charlie's decoder , Rowena had kept the Book of the Damned separate and they were not able to retrieve it. While held prisoner, Rowena tells Dean that she has read much of the Book of the Damned and it had no information on what would happen once the Mark of Cain was gone. Rowena tells Jack Kline that Agnes created the spell because her only friends, her fellow prisoners, were dying from starvation and death is the ultimate curse to be reversed.
South of Des Moines, Jacob Styne is able to track Charlie down using a special compass that points in the direction of the book.
When he and his henchman attempt to take the book from Charlie she goes on the offensive and is able to escape, but not before being shot. Wounded, Charlie calls Sam and Dean to tell them of her predicament, and that she has found the Book of the Damned, and it may hold the key to removing the Mark of Cain from Dean.
With this new information, Sam and Dean direct Charlie to one of Bobby 's old hunting cabins to lay low until they can get to her. While preparing to leave, Dean finds a lead-lined curse box in the Men of Letters Bunker storage room, and suggests they use it to hide the book.
When the Winchesters finally arrive at the cabin, she hands the book to Sam and explains the book's history as he looks through it. Due to the influence of the Mark of Cain, Dean becomes entranced by the book as Sam flips through the pages and when he snaps out of the trance, the book is in Dean's hands. When he hands the book back to Charlie, Dean tells them to keep it away from him while they work to translate it.
While Dean researches the Styne family using the Men of Letters files, Sam and Charlie work on translating the Book of the Damned, but soon hit a wall, until Charlie realizes that the book, in addition to being written in an ancient and obscure Sumerian dialect, is also in code.
Noticing Dean's strange attention on the book, Sam puts it away in the curse box and suggests they use his notes to work on the decoding for the moment. After reading up on the Styne family and their use of the book, Dean tries to dissuade Sam and Charlie from trying to translate it. Dean tells them that the book has been calling out to him and the Mark, and that he can hear it like it's alive, and that it wants him to use it but not for good. He demands that they destroy it before anything bad happens from using it before heading out to get supplies.
At a convenience store, Dean runs into Jacob Styne, who has been tracking Charlie and the book.
Styne and his henchman attack Dean, who manages to escape. He races to the cabin to destroy the book in a fire of holy oil. Jacob and his men arrive at the cabin and a fight ensues in which they are killed.
Sam pretends to burn the book, but hides it away. Seeing the book as the only chance to save Dean, Sam decides to make a deal with Rowena to use it. The only person who could was a Grand Coven witch named Nadya who was murdered by the Men of Letters and her decoding codex stolen.
Sam and Dean manage to break the warding spells on the Box and get the codex. Sam takes it to Rowena, but locks her away at an abandoned distillery so that she will only decode the cure for the Mark of Cain, at which time he will destroy the book, though he intends to keep his deal with her.
Charlie uses pictures of the writing in the book and the Codex to search for a pattern in the book's coding and any synchronicity with the symbols in Nadya's Codex.
The Styne family sends Eldon Styne to retrieve the book and kill Charlie. When Eldon is taken to the Bunker, he tells Dean that he wants the book returned to his family.
