Afterward, Lilith herself became trapped "neck-deep" in Hell , rendering her unable to leave Hell on her own power.
After Lucifer told Azazel that Lilith was essential to his release from the Cage due to her capability to break the seals, Azazel plotted to free her as part of his plan to free Lucifer. Although Azazel's plan was successful and Lilith managed to escape Hell through the opened gateway before it was closed by hunters Bobby Singer and Ellen Harvelle , Azazel was killed by Dean Winchester.
Lilith gained the support of the King of the Crossroads , Crowley , and instated him as her right-hand man. It is suggested that they were also lovers. Lilith sought to break the 66 seals. Knowing that she had to die to break the last seal, she had Ruby go to Lucifer's true vessel , Sam Winchester , to protect him from threats and have him kill Lilith once 65 seals had been broken. Lilith did not divulge this information to any other demon and so all other demons believed that Ruby had become a traitor, not realizing that she was actually carrying out an undercover operation she had been assigned to by Lilith.
Lilith knew that to achieve this, his soul had to go to Hell and torture other souls, and so she worked towards this goal to bring on the breaking of the seals. The crossroads demon told Sam that the demon who held Dean's contract was a higher-ranking male demon whom she referred to as her "boss"; this could only mean Crowley, the King of the Crossroads. This means that Lilith indirectly held the contracts because she had the King of the Crossroads as her subordinate but that she did not directly hold them, that ownership of the souls truly did transfer hands to Lilith at some point after " Bedtime Stories ", or simply that Lilith had lied to Bela and Ruby upheld this lie to trick the Winchesters into an ill-fated confrontation with Lilith in " No Rest For The Wicked ".
Lilith, possessing a young girl, identifies herself before destroying the sheriff's office. Lilith issued orders for demons to kill both Winchesters. It was most likely a ploy to keep her true plans for Sam and thus Ruby's cover secret. Before Lilith took over, Sam was seen by demon-kind as a potential candidate for the new leader of the army and many demons wanted to kill him to stop him and take that position for themselves. Had Lilith ordered a cease-and-desist after becoming leader, or even just not call for the competition presented in Sam to be wiped out after defeating other demons for the spot, other demons would have questioned why she wanted Sam alive, potentially spread this question to Sam himself, and thus risk blowing her entire plan.
After a demon contacted her with the news that her forces had trapped the Winchester at a police station in Monument, Colorado, but that the Winchesters had escaped after exorcising most of the demons, Lilith herself paid a visit to the station. She destroyed the building itself with blast of explosive white light ,  but kept its living human occupants which Ruby indicated was seven people alive for an additional forty-five minutes to torture them all; this included skinning Nancy Fitzgerald alive while forcing everyone else to watch.
After learning of this, Ruby gave the Winchesters hexbags that would help keep Lilith and her minions from finding them. Lilith also aimed to deprive the Winchesters of the Colt so that they would no longer have their one sure-fire way to kill her and in the future Sam would be more open to Ruby's suggestion of using his powers to kill her. To this end, Lilith and Crowley contacted Bela Talbot.
As Bela was a professional thief who had encountered the Winchesters before and earned a modicum of their trust, the demons wanted her to steal the Colt from the brothers for them. In return, they would release her from her contract. Bela accepted the deal, stole the Colt, and gave it to Crowley.

Instead of upholding their end of the deal, however, Crowley changed the terms of the deal so that Bela was forced to also kill Sam if she wanted to get out of her original deal. Her attempt to kill him failed and it is implied that she was killed by a hellhound and her soul taken to Hell soon afterward. Before her death, Bela told the Winchesters about her deal with Lilith. She also told them that Lilith had claimed to hold the contracts to all deals, including Dean's, in the hopes that they would use this information to kill Lilith.
A year to the day of Lilith's release from Hell in May in , they finally located her with a tracking spell , stole Ruby's demon-killing knife , and came to New Harmony, Indiana, planning to kill Lilith to break Dean's contract and save his life. After having to fight other demons to become their leader and prepare elaborate schemes for the upcoming war over the seals with the angels , Lilith had gone to New Harmony to take "shore leave" and have fun.
She entertained herself by tormenting the Freemont family while possessing their young daughter , holding them hostage inside their own house, forcing them to cater to her every demand, and inflicting psychological torture, fear, and stress upon them without letting them act as if anything were out of the ordinary.

If they did not play along, or went against her in any way, Lilith killed them. She killed her host 's babysitter and the family pet for being "mean" to her, then killed her host's grandfather after he tried to go to a neighbor for help, not knowing that this neighbor, like the rest of the neighborhood, was possessed by one of Lilith's minions. Bobby set a trap to prevent Lilith's minions from going to her aid while the Winchesters infiltrated the Freemont home with Ruby.
However, Lilith was already aware of the hunters' presence and secretly left the body of her Freemont host, found Ruby trapped in a Devil's trap and possessed her host. She later returned to Sam and Dean pretending to be Ruby and assisted them in finding her former host and almost killing it until Dean realized that it wasn't Lilith anymore.
When time was running out, Sam begged "Ruby" if there was another way, but just like the actual Ruby, Lilith told Sam that his powers could have helped, but he doesn't have the time to perfect them like before, then the clock struck midnight. When a hellhound came Dean, Sam and Lilith ran into the kitchen and barricaded themselves in with salt. Lilith tried to trick Sam into giving her the knife. Right when Sam was about to do so, Dean suddenly noticed the difference in the demon's true face and realized that the demon with them was Lilith, not Ruby.
Lilith immediately dropped the charade and used telekinesis to overpower and immobilize them before they could attack her. Lilith then introduced herself to them before kissing Sam. When Sam, believing that she wanted to kill him as her rival for leadership of Hell, offered to let her have him if she would let Dean go, she turned down the deal and let the hellhound in to kill Dean, laughing.
With Dean dead, Lilith cast her white light on Sam, but it appears to be completely ineffective on him. She fled her host body when Sam advanced on her with the knife. The eventual destruction of the first seal rendered all other potential seals susceptible to breaking, allowing Lilith and her forces to begin targeting seals at will.
When angels learned that Lilith had sent Dean's soul to Hell to break the first seal, they rushed to Hell to save him, but arrived too late. Instead, they resurrected him and informed him of Lilith's plan to release Lucifer, looking to enlist him to stop Lilith and her demons from starting the Apocalypse. Secretly, however, higher-ranking angels were conspiring for Lilith to succeed in her mission, having arranged for the events leading up to it because they wanted to fulfill destiny by having Michael kill Lucifer.
Lilith commanded the forces of Hell in battle against the Host of Heaven and hunters over the seals. In addition to breaking seals on her own, she also employed the strategy of informing select demons on what select seals were and sending them out to break them, not only creating greater difficulty and confusion for the Host as they tried to defend various seals from her forces but also ensuring that she alone knew what the seals were and which ones she planned to break. Thus, killing her was the only way to ensure that demons did not finish breaking the seals.
Meanwhile, Ruby was preparing Sam to break the final seal by strengthening his demonic powers so that they would grow powerful enough to kill Lilith. However, Lilith began having second thoughts about her upcoming sacrifice; she took another vessel and eventually went to negotiate a deal with Sam, offering to stop breaking seals if Sam agreed to sacrifice himself and Dean as her "consolation prize.
She overpowered him and seized the knife before he could stab her, but Dean barged in and brought in the prophet Chuck Shurley whose entrance into the room forced Lilith to leave as it started to summon Raphael to kill her and protect Chuck.

For his part, Sam believed that she never actually intended to stop breaking seals and that she would have gone back on their deal had he agreed. Regardless of her intentions, Lilith renewed her attack on the seals, recommitting herself to her fate. Lilith arranged for the breaking of 65 seals. When she was the last seal that needed to be broken to free Lucifer, she traveled to St.

Mary's Convent and began preparing for her demise with a group of her minions. Dean was eventually told the consequences of her death by the angel Castiel. Together, they sought Sam out to warn him not to kill Lilith, but were hindered by the archangels. When Sam and Ruby arrived to kill her, Lilith was overpowered by Sam and telekinetically pinned to the altar. However, she still survived his initial attempts to kill her, even with his greatly increased power from having drank more demon blood than ever before. At that moment, Dean arrived at the convent alone, having been sent by Castiel to try to stop Sam while Castiel himself tried to delay the archangels.
Seeing Sam hesitate when he hears Dean call out to him, Lilith begins to laugh mockingly at him, drawing his attention back to her. She taunted him on how he had turned himself into a freakish monster for the sole purpose of killing her, yet is now hesitating to kill her, deeming it "adorable. Her host's corpse fell limp to the floor and began bleeding from the mouth. This blood moved on its own to form a symbol on the convent floor, from which Lucifer rose from the Cage.
Even though Lilith was finally killed by Sam, her legacy endures long after her death. Lilith's death was the final seal that set Lucifer free. He was set loose to wreak havoc and cause death and disaster on Earth for months along with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the help of most demons due to Lilith's sacrifice. The hour story picks up immediately after the events at the end of Borderlands 2.
Gearbox courteously warns new players of the potential spoilers, but honestly, this DLC isn't for new players anyway. If you're like me and you've switched platforms since playing the original Borderlands 2 in my case from Xbox to PC , Gearbox has your back: You can roll a new level character using any of the Borderlands 2 Vault Hunters and dive right into the Fight for Sanctuary. Exit Theatre Mode.
Fight for Sanctuary's main story is, shockingly, all about fighting for Sanctuary. I know, it really took me by surprise. New baddie Colonel Hector of the New Pandora Army is the main antagonist here, and his goal is to create a paradise for the men of his unit. His is a woeful tale of betrayal at the hands of the Dahl Corporation, but that doesn't mean Hector isn't a total dick, because he is: his plan involves infecting Pandora with a virus that turns the enemies you're so used to fighting psychos, brutes, skags, etc.
They fight similarly to their non-infected counter parts: rushing and melee attacking or blasting you from a distance.

They do have more in the way of slag and corrosive attacks, but thankfully they're even more susceptible to fire than regular flesh bags. You also fight against Hector's troops, which are much tougher and unrelenting versions of the heavily armed and shielded Hyperion soldiers you've fought before — and they have medics. You know how one of the loading screens in Borderlands 2 says you'll "learn to hate" the repair bots? The medics are even more aggravating. If there's a single medic in the group you have to take him out first or he'll heal all the damage you're doing to his fellow soldiers; if there are two medics in a group, they can heal each other.
While they're obnoxious, it's a great way to drive home the cooperative focus of the Borderlands franchise: two or more players can divide and conquer, knocking out the medics more or less simultaneously. Speaking of frustrating but fair, with my newly minted level Krieg the difficulty in Fight for Sanctuary feels just where it should be. When playing solo it was just a little tougher than I expected, which is a good thing. It's not frustrating, but it's definitely not a cakewalk.
Boss battles are tough, but again, far from impossible. Oh right: bosses! There are plenty of new bosses here, some for the main story and some for the plentiful side missions. I didn't even make a scratch. It looks like he tops out at 40, but even trying at level 38, I didn't last long. At the same time, it plays like a shooter, requiring twitch skills to dominate the droves of enemies that stand in between you and your search for a mysterious vault. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is a well-made and entertaining piece of content, giving Borderlands fans a chance to sink bullets into undead flesh in new environments and with some additional quest goals.
The expansion also offers stronger story elements, something mostly propped up with wacky humor and nonsense, which is quite fitting considering the context of a zombie outbreak and ludicrous amount of loot and bullets and death. It actually encourages you to leave the Underdome to go grind your character. The main storyline is still a blast even if you go it alone and some of the side quests will challenge the most hardened team of Borderlands veterans.
This is by far the best of the three add-ons for the core game, and the most fun I had since I completed the main game last year. Additional visual customization options would make it better, and the occasional technical issue takes away from the experience, but overall this is an excellent shooter no one even remotely curious should overlook. Prepare to level. Prepare to loot. Prepare to get lost in the hilarious, bizarre and wonderful world of Pandora.
Yes, It’s Worth Playing The ‘Borderlands 2’ Commander Lilith DLC Before ‘Borderlands 3’
It takes the satisfying shooting action, the well-tuned loot hunt, and the inimitable character of the core game, amps it up, and beams it straight into your brain without ever stopping to breathe. Everything you love about Borderlands 2 is here in abundance. Otherwise, Mr.
Combat is still satisfying, as is finding that next gear upgrade. Anyone who found the core gameplay enjoyable before will most likely find it enjoyable here, and a new raid boss offers completionists yet another feather to put in their cap. But in terms of story, dialogue, and encounter design, this add-on pales in comparison to the rest of Borderlands 2. With eight to 10 hours of brand-new enemies and locations that have been built from the ground up to look like nothing else in all of Borderlands, it offers a great value, especially to those who can appreciate the cavalcade of nerd culture references it makes.
