The CW’s Supernatural is on an unprecedented run on television. With 11 seasons under its belt and a twelfth definitely on the way, it is the longest-running North American fantasy series in television history, and fans just can’t enough. It is a feat of everyone in the cast and crew to keep a show so popular for so long, but especially to the writers and the actors for delivering episode after episode of intriguing, fresh and exciting content to keep audiences coming back. Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki have become like brothers for real and their chemistry has driven so many episodes that it is difficult to select the best. There are still many more to come, but these are the 1o most memorable Supernatural episodes so far in the series!
10. Weekend at Bobby’s – Season 6
In a show where the two main stars have been in over 100 more episodes than the next leading star, those in recurring roles have to be effective and memorable for audiences, and Bobby Singer is all of that and more. Over the years Bobby, portrayed by Jim Beaver, has appeared in 59 episodes and has become a beloved character along the way, which makes season six’s “Weekend at Bobby’s” one of the most memorable for fans. After so many seasons and episodes, writers like to switch things up, and this episode was a perfect “break” as it gave an inside look at his day-to-day life and incorporated a lot of humor. It made fans realize just how under-appreciated Bobby was!
9. Changing Channels – Season 5
Supernatural may be dark, emotional and sometimes even gory, but the entire time a core component has always been humor. Dean is funny, and Sam’s reactions to Dean are funny, providing relief from the other themes without distracting from the story or depth; enter season five’s “Changing Channels.” Audiences have come to learn that Supernatural‘s crew will try anything once, and are consistently met with success. The episode in theory should have been frivolous, but what it delivered was something fans loved. The comedy was spot-on as the Winchester brothers ended up being transplanted by the Trickster into various TV shows including parodies of some of the biggest hits including Grey’s Anatomy. It could have stood alone as a humor-based episode, but hit home when the Trickster revealed himself as Gabriel, and told the brothers their pre-destined role in the upcoming Apocalypse, quickly snapping Sam, Dean and the viewers out of the happy-go-lucky episode, making it very memorable for many reasons.
