We first meet Chuck toward the end of season 4, when Dean and Sam discover that there is a series of books out there which chronicle their hunting escapades. The author is Carver Edlund (name derived from the names of the show's story editor Jeremy Carver and producer Ben Edlund). So, they track him down through his now-bankrupt publisher, prove who they are, and confront him.

In Monster at the End of This Book, Chuck first thinks that he has created Sam and Dean, and he apologizes profusely for all he's put them through. The boys finally get it through his head that they are real, and ask how he knows so much about them. He explains that he dreams it all. It begins with a headache (which aspirin won't help, so he drinks heavily until he passes out, and the dreams come). Then he just writes what he has seen. He then informs them that his latest vision is of Lilith coming for Sam. With the help of Chuck's manuscript, Dean tries to have them do the opposite of what's written, but Sam seems bent on confronting Lilith. Castiel reveals to Dean that Chuck is actually a prophet. As things get dangerous, Cas also lets on that prophets have archangels tethered to them, which appear and destroy anything that threatens the prophet--information which Dean then uses to save Sam from Lilith.

It's clear that Chuck feels very protective of the boys now that he has met them. At the end of the episode, he obviously is having visions of the apocalypse, and he wants to warn Sam and Dean, but Zachariah won't let him.

We next see Chuck toward the end of Lucifer Rising, the season 4 finale. When all else fails, Castiel brings Dean to Chuck's house to find out where Sam is. Once they know, Cas sends Dean to the convent to stop Sam from killing Lilith, saying he will hold off the arriving archangel.

We already know from clips that Chuck makes an appearance in Sympathy for the Devil, leaving Sam and Dean a message about Michael's Sword location, but its proved a trap.

He played his future self in The End

At the conclusion of Swan Song, while finishing the writing of his book, Chuck smiles and dissapears, indicating that he was God all this time.

  • "I am the prophet CHUCK!"
  • "Writing yourself into the story is one thing, but a prophet? That's like M. Night-level douchiness."
  • "I am SO sorry. I mean, horror is one thing, but to be forced to live bad writing... If I would have known it was real, I would have done another past."
  • Chuck writes in his bathrobe.
  • He's a bit of a slob.
  • Beer and liquor are all that helps with the headaches when a vision is coming.
  • Future him, thinks toilet paper is like gold.
