Crowley started off as a villain, but slowly became a fan favorite character. You know when you align yourself with the Winchesters, you place yourself in the mortal danger, you often times it doesn’t end up well for a character. In Season 12 finale ‘All Along The Watchtower’, Crowley decided to do something which was extremely uncharacteristic of him. When the boys found themselves cornered in the Alternate Universe against the all powerful archangel Lucifer, the King of Hell becomes their savior who sacrifices himself which allows the boys to complete the rift sealing ritual and thus trapping Lucifer inside the AU. Crowley’s demise was a heartbreaking moment.

But this just shows how badly writers treated his character. His sacrifice went in vain as Lucifer was able to come through the rift and stabbed Castiel. Crowley’s actor Mark Sheppard openly expressed his frustration with the direction his character was going, the writers didn’t had any storylines for him which could be contributed to the actor’s exit from the show, and the decision to never return again.
