    There has to be a reason for the color of the demons eyes. Like in the army. Yellow in Azazals case is probably because he had no competition and was ruler without any doubt. White has to be like a General someone who rules an area of Hell. Red would be like a captain keeping the black eyed demons in check and report to the white eyed Demons.

    I have to assume Lilith's eyes are not yellow yet because either she doesn't have the power that Azazal had or she still has competition ie Sam. Maybe Sam after Killing Lillth using his demon abilities would end up with Yellow eyes and vice versa with Lilith if she kills sam. Absorbing the powers that each hold.

    Perhaps thats why the Angels are worried about the road Sam was on because you could end up with a Demon/Human with Azazals powers walking the earth and he would be one hard target to take down. Only God or the Devil having enough power to take him out if he went bad, but on the flip side if sam Did end up all powerful yellow eyed and good he would be an amazing ally to the Angels.Thats why I believe the Angels are unsure of the Road sam is taking and want him to stop. Anyway there are too many variables at this point to guess Sam's future in the show.

    That's a pretty hard thing to answer because we saw that Azazel's eyes were yellow, Crossroads demons were red, but then Astaroth's were black like a lower level demon but she/he is supposedly a very high level demon. And Alistair, Lilith, and Samhain's eyes were white, so what makes them higher than Azazel, or is Azazel higher than them? It's confusing.

    Maybe it's something different, maybe it has something to do with who is connected to another demon. See, Lillith and Alistair seem to be close if he leaves his beloved hell just to help her out a bit. Demons are usually selfish. Like different tribes or families or something.

    Yeah, if he hates being topside but is here to help Lilith then they must have a pretty good alliance.

    Lilith and Alastair may have an alliance, or maybe they're both working for someone.

    Eric Kripke has said that Lilith is higher than Azazel in the demon hierarchy, and that "you don't get much higher than her without stepping into Lucifer territory." So if eye color is indeed an indication of rank, white is higher than yellow. Personally, though, I don't think that's what they stand for, mainly because the only red-eyed demons (that we've seen, anyway) have been the two Crossroads demons. This implies that red eyes are an emblem of the job, not the rank. The other eye colors could mean similar things -In mythology, Alistair was a powerful demon who was pretty much in charge of making sure everyone in Hell was properly tortured, a role which SN's Alistair seems to reflect.

    Also, this could mean nothing, but I wanted to point it out. When Black-eyed demons, as well as Lilith and Alistair, flash their eye colors; the entire eyeball changes color. However, Azazel, the Crossroads demons, and Samhain only change their pupil and retinas -The rest of their eyes stay white (While Samhain did have white eyes, unlike Lilith and Alistair his pupils remained faintly visible).

    maybe black eyed demons are demons who were once humans but turned into demons in hell. this could mean that demons with "coloured eyes" were their since like the beginning of hell or something. all demons with "coloured eyes" in the show are actually based on real demons so this could be real...

    and im from Australia so that's why coloured is written like this
    and p.s in Australia we have not seen "I Know What Y0u Did Last Summer"

    Im thinking same thing- that Alistar, Azreal and Lilith come from different source ie Angels themselves. Alistar even said something about Angels being hypocrites, ontop of which we have Castiel's and Sam's powers being unable to work on him, nor the dagger (POS holy religious relic) working because they may only be specifically targeted towards human-demons.

    THe story goes that when Lucifer fell so to did his minions (fellow angels)
