What we learned from ranking every 'Supernatural' episode

Sitting down to rank 200 episodes of a show as beloved as Supernatural was not easy. Coming into it, we had our own ideas about what the best and worst seasons were, and by looking at individual episodes, those ideas, for the most part, were proven to be true. But after refreshing our memories on what happened in any (and every) given hour, we looked at each episode on its own, apart from which season it might have taken place in.

Coming into the ranking, we considered seasons 4 and 5 to be the strongest, and despite the lack of season 4 in the Top 40, we still feel that way. Yes, only four episodes from season 4 made it into our Top 40, but three of them are in our Top 10. And as the numbers reflect, seasons 6 and 7 are, in our opinion, the show’s weakest.

EW's definitive ranking of every 'Supernatural' episode

In honor of Supernatural‘s 200th episode, EW took a quick trip down the road so far. And by quick, we mean that we ranked every episode of Supernatural ever. From Sam and Dean’s first battle against the Woman in White to Sam’s recent rescue of Demon Dean, we left nothing out, and we’re pretty sure it was just as difficult as that one time that Sam and Dean stopped the apocalypse.

If you’re looking for our Top 40 picks, check out gallery No. 1, and for our Worst 10, head here. For everything in between, scroll down, relive the memories (and play a little “Carry On My Wayward Son” just to set the mood).

UPDATE: The 200th episode has been factored into our Top 40. Here’s how the rest of the rankings stand:

Here's how 'Supernatural' star Misha Collins is breaking world records

Supernatural‘s Misha Collins spends most of the year fighting demons (and sometimes angels) in a trench coat. And when Supernatural returns for it’s tenth season, Collins promises that between trying to find Dean and solving the problem of his own fading grace, Castiel will once again have his hands full. But until then, the 39-year-old actor is keeping busy by breaking world records alongside Orlando Jones and William Shatner. But why?

Well, because he can. August 2-9 will mark the fourth annual GISHWHES, the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen, which Collins launched after being inspired by an annual scavenger hunt he participated in when he was an undergraduate at the University of Chicago. “It used to be a very academically rigorous and a very socially dismal place,” Collins says. “The only social interaction we had was in the basement of the library where there was a little coffee shop. We didn’t even have a student center. There was a study commissioned at the University of Chicago of the top 300 universities, and we ranked 300 out of 300 for social life. [We were] the very, very worst—under the Naval Academy, I might add. [But] we had this one bright spot on the calendar, which was a campus-wide scavenger hunt. Everyone basically stopped going to classes and stopped doing anything and just participated in the scavenger hunt for four days. And it was just so much fun.” READ FULL STORY

Listen up, Tumblr users, fan-fiction writers, cosplayers, and Redditors—and even you, people of the Internet who casually upvote and reblog. Have you ever wanted recognition for loving the things you love? Well, it’s time for you to win some awards.

MTV’s 24-hour college network, mtvU, announces the categories and nominees for the first annual “mtvU Fandom Awards” today. The categories include everything from “Fandom Feat of the Year” (which is more valuable, a successful Kickstarter campaign, a la Veronica Mars, or a successful season renewal,a la Community?) to “‘Ship of the year,” which includes suggestions both canon and not (like Hunger Games’ Katniss and Peeta, and Sherlock’s Sherlock and John, respectively).

'Supernatural' season finale recap: 'I'm proud of us'

Despite warnings that Supernatural‘s season finale would be a whopper of an episode, I didn’t plan to spend my entire summer trying to recover from the trauma. But it looks like that’s exactly what I’m going to do, following an emotionally exhausting hour that capped off the show’s stellar season 9 Tuesday night.

That may sounds hyper-dramatic. But it’s really not, considering all that happened.

'Supernatural' recap: Abaddon is Aba-done

A war is brewing. Crowley is on the loose. Dean’s going nuts. And Sam’s hair is as luscious as ever. Yup, it’s almost time for a Supernatural season finale!

With two episodes left, though, our ride to what’s sure to be a crazy season ender took a sharp turn in Tuesday night’s episode — thanks to the death of major baddie Abaddon, who said hello to the pointy end of Cain’s blade after trying to lure the Winchesters into a trap. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural': Five SPN-offs we'd like to see

Last night Supernatural aired an episode that acted as the backdoor pilot for its hopeful spin-off Supernatural: Bloodlines.

It centered on a young man, named Ennis (Lucien Laviscount), who enters the world of hunting and finds himself in the center of a monster mob war. You thought it was aight. At least, that’s what we gathered from the results of our online poll, in which 29 percent of our readers said they were on the fence about the show.

The most prevalent complaint among Supernatural loyals, however, is something you have to agree with — we wish the spin-off centered on a character we’ve already met.

In the rich world of Supernatural, there is no shortage of interesting and vibrant characters we’ve met over the course of ten seasons, and an opportunity to have a spin-off could have been a great opening to flesh some of those characters out even more.

The CW will pick its fall lineup in May, and whether or not Bloodlines is on that list, here are some SPN-offs we’d like to see: READ FULL STORY
