From an interview with Jeremy Carver and Andrew Dabb with SpinOff Online.
What makes the Darkness unlike any other threat the Winchesters have faced? Jeremy Carver:
For starters, it becomes fully apparent what the Darkness wants. It’s not just a threat for the boys, but a threat to angels and demons as well. In some ways, it’s a more global threat. I say that and it sounds big and comic book-y almost, but there’s certain incredibly related things about the Darkness that grounds it in a way “Supernatural” does. Once we fully start to understand what the Darkness is all about, everybody is going to realize there is a very relatable story here and a lot of unfinished business for the Darkness side. I don’t think the Darkness thinks that the Darkness is a threat at all. Hopefully, sometimes that is the best Big Bad: They think they are the hero of their own story.

Will we learn what Metatron did with the demon tablet on Supernatural? — Alien Knights of Chaos
I can’t speak specifically to the demon tablet, but it’s highly likely the guys will find themselves asking for Metatron’s help yet again. While discussing how the Darkness predates the Bible — and therefore there’s not much written about it — Jared Padalecki says that Sam and Dean are going to seek any and all help they can get. “We’re going to have to maybe go to Metatron for help or Castiel, and we don’t even know what they know because the Darkness predates them as well,” he says. But rest assured, “We’re going to see the boys really stop at no end to right this wrong they’ve brought onto this Earth.” Anyone else having season 5 déjà vu
