EW's definitive ranking of every 'Supernatural' episode

Posted on

Sam and Dean Winchester have saved the world more than once, so we figured that the least we could do would be ranking every episode of Supernatural ever. From Sam and Dean’s first battle against the Woman in White to Lucifer’s son opening a rift to an apocalypse world, we left nothing out.

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).

Here’s how the rest of the rankings stand:

41. “Born Under A Bad Sign”

Season 2, episode 14

When Sam shows up covered in blood after having gone missing for more than a week, it’s up to the brothers to figure out what happened. Spoiler: Sam’s possessed by Meg, who’s back from Hell to torture Dean. Thankfully, Bobby is able to expel Meg, but not before she’s said some pretty harsh things to Dean about his dear old dad.

42. “Ghostfacers”

Season 3, episode 13

When Sam and Dean come across the Ghostfacers for the second time, they’ve got their own reality show. Only, things get a little tricky when one of their own actually dies while staying the night in a haunted house. Sorry, Corbett. But at least we get to see Ed and Harry again, right?

43. “King of the Damned”

Season 9, episode 21

The battle for the crown of Hell is finally decided with a little help from the First Blade. Crowley shows off a little of his paternal side without losing a bit of menace, as Abaddon pulls his son out of time as a bit of blackmail against her nemesis. She unfortunately doesn’t account for Dean’s newfound power, though, and meets a gruesome end at his hands while Crowley keeps his head on straight. Literally. He’s allowed to.

44. “Do You Believe in Miracles”

Season 9, Episode 23

Metatron seems unstoppable in his quest to become the new God. He has the angel tablet on hand, and it takes Gadreel sacrificing himself to save Castiel so that someone can put an end to Metatron’s reign. Metatron’s hubris is used in a trick that causes him to lose his angel army, leading to his imprisonment—but not before he injures Dean enough to leave him for dead. That is, of course, until he wakes up with a pair of all-black demon eyes. That can’t be good.

45. “Pilot

Season 1, Episode 1

In the hour that kicks off everything, we’re introduced to the Winchester family on the day that Yellow Eyes kills Mary and John begins his quest for revenge. Jump forward 22 years, and Dean is picking Sam up from college to go look for their father, who’s gone missing on one of his “hunting” trips. By episode’s end, the brothers have defeated a Woman in White, and Sam’s girlfriend has met the same fate his mother did all those years before.

46. “Croatoan”

Season 2, Episode 9

A demonic virus has taken over a town, and when Sam gets infected, classic brother moments ensue. By episode’s end, Sam is healed and Dean leaves viewers with the cliffhanger of what John said to him before he died. (Hint: If you can’t save your brother, you’re going to have to kill him.)

47. “Heart”

Season 2, Episode 17

In one of the show’s most heartbreaking endings, Sam is forced to kill the woman he’s falling for when she realizes she’s a werewolf. So many tears are shed.

48. “First Blood”

Season 12, Episode 9

Sam and Dean make a deadly deal with Billie to escape the U.S. government.

49. “Faith”

Season 1, Episode 12

An important hour for the show, “Faith” marks the first real introduction of religion. Sure, it ends up being about a reaper, but with Dean’s life hanging in the balance, it packs an emotional punch.

50. “The Devil in the Details” 

Season 11, Episode 10

51. “Red Meat”

Season 11, Episode 17

Not your typical hour, “Red Meat” kicks off with Sam being shot and then allows the drama to unfold at a slower-than-usual pace by putting the boys in a survivalist scenario. It’s an approach the show hadn’t taken before, and one that worked beautifully to build suspense.

52. “Brother’s Keeper”

Season 10, Episode 23

53. “The Things We Left Behind”

Season 10, Episode 9

54. “LARP and the Real Girl”

Season 8, Episode 11

Not only does Charlie return, but Sam and Dean do a little LARPing.

55. “Hollywood Babylon”

Season 2, Episode 18

In the show’s first real attempt at comedy, Sam and Dean find themselves on a haunted film set. Aside: Every note the producer gives the director is something The CW told Supernatural at some point. And yes, by hour’s end, they kill the producer.

56. “Stairway to Heaven”

Season 9, Episode 22

57. “My Bloody Valentine”

Season 5, Episode 14

Sam uses his demon-blood powers to pull demon souls out of Famine and kill him. Also, Cas eats raw hamburger.

58. “In the Beginning”

Season 4, Episode 3

59. “On the Head of a Pin”

Season 4, Episode 16

60. “Let The Good Times Roll”

Season 13, Episode 23

Dean says “yes” to Michael, allowing the archangel to possess him for a final showdown with Lucifer. Lucifer ends up dead, but he isn’t Michael’s only victim when the archangel makes it clear he has no intention of letting Dean go.

61. “O Brother Where Art Thou?”

Season 11, Episode 9

62. “The Executioner’s Song”

Season 10, Episode 14

It’s the big battle between Dean and Cain, and — spoiler! — Dean comes out victorious.

63. “Who We Are”

Season 12, Episode 22

Sam takes out the British Men of Letters’ headquarters while Dean deals with Mary’s brainwashing by having a very emotional mother-son chat. Grab some tissues for this one!

64. “The Prisoner”

Season 10, Episode 22

65. “I Know What You Did Last Summer”

Season 4, Episode 9

The introduction of Anna is matched with Sam finally filling Dean in on his “connection” with Ruby. Yes, there’s sex.

Season 2, Episode 20

72. “All Along the Watchtower” 

Season 12, Episode 23

“Watchtower” introduces us to an intriguing parallel universe where Sam and Dean failed to avert the apocalypse, creating many possibilities for the show moving forward.

73. “Clip Show”

Season 8, Episode 22

Any TV episode titled “Clip Show” is one to be wary of, but Supernatural doesn’t phone it in, instead bringing back old characters as part of a new case.

74. “Let It Bleed”

Season 6, Episode 21

75. “Mommy Dearest”

Season 6, Episode 19

Eve meets her end in a dinner showdown. But the fight’s far from over as Castiel and Crowley meet up after all the bloodshed.

78. “The Born-Again Identity”

Season 7, Episode 17

79. “Monster Movie”

Murders begin taking the form of classic horror films–mummies, werewolves, and Dracula all seem to be to blame. But a shapeshifter with a penchant for Universal monster movies is the real foe.

80. “Folsom Prison Blues”

Season 2, Episode 19

The boys are thrown in jail, but that doesn’t stop demons from popping up in their lives. At least Dean knows how to fit in after watching all those classic prison movies.

81. “Advanced Thanatology” 

Season 13, Episode 5

Dean comes face-to-face with Billie, who’s now the new Death.

82. “Lost and Found”

Season 13, Episode 1

83. “Safe House”

Season 11, Episode 16

Midway through season 11, Supernatural took a break from the Amara of it all with this episode, which featured the more than welcomed return of Bobby and Rufus via flashbacks that ran parallel to the present day storyline involving The Winchesters hunting a soul eater.

84. “Rock Never Dies”

Season 12, Episode 7

Castiel, Crowley, Sam, and Dean all work together to bring down Lucifer, who’s currently living his best life as a rock star.

Sitting at his typewriter, Metatron finally tells his side of the story in a wonderfully crafted hour.

86. “Meet the New Boss”

Season 7, Episode 1

87. “Yellow Fever”

Season 4, Episode 6

Dean gets a virus that makes him scared of just about anything, including very small dogs. It’s another example of the show balancing drama—Dean might die—and comedy—and a cat might kill him.

88. “We Happy Few”

Season 11, Episode 21

It’s the biblical battle we’ve been waiting for the show to stage: Chuck, Castiel and angels, Crowley and the demons, Rowena and the witches vs. Amara, a.k.a. The Darkness. Yes, there was a cop out ending, but that didn’t stop the episode from feeling epic. 

89. “All in the Family”

Season 11, Episode 21

90. “The One You’ve Been Waiting For”

Season 12, Episode 5

Although we weren’t dying for the show to revisit the Nazis of the Thule Society, we’re glad they did because it led to this fun episode where Dean kills Hitler, who was resurrected in a new body. (And, “Dean killed Hitler” is a sentence we’ll never tired of writing). 

91. “Wayward Sisters”

Season 13, Episode 10

Not only was “Wayward Sisters” a successful backdoor pilot for a potential spin-off, but it also gave many fans what they’ve been waiting for for years: a great story anchored by well-drawn female characters. 

92. “Stuck in the Middle (With You)”

Season 12, Episode 12

Former trickster/archangel Richard Speight Jr. directs this exceedingly fun installment, which pays homage to Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs.

93. “Into the Mystic”

Season 11, Episode 11

94. “My Heart Will Go On”

Season 6, Episode 17

What if the Titanic never sank? Well, fate still has some souls to collect. More importantly, come on, Balthazar. What kind of angel could hate Titanic?

95. “Appointment in Samarra”

Season 6, Episode 11

Any appearance by Death is a good one, but this time, he decides to hand his powers over to Dean for a day. Oh, and Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, pops up, just in case the episode wasn’t good enough already.

96. “Taxi Driver”

Season 8, Episode 19

While the idea that breaking into Hell only requires a taxi driving smuggler is a bit silly, the second trial proves to be no easy task. Meanwhile, Kevin can’t seem to get Crowley’s voice out of his head.

97. “Home”

Season 1, Episode 9

98. “A Very Supernatural Christmas”

Season 3, Episode 8

A good, yet fairly standard episode of the show is topped off when the brothers exchange Christmas gifts and enjoy some quality family time—eggnog included.

100. “Are you there, God? It’s Me, Dean Winchester”

103. “It’s A Terrible Life”

Season 4, Episode 17

Zachariah sends Dean into a world where he’s got a job in corporate America and Sam works in tech support. And yet, inevitably, their fate finds them. Like most alternate realities, it makes for an entertaining hour worthy of the show’s Top 100.

104. “Freaks and Geeks”

Season 8, Episode 18

105. “Hunted”

Season 2, Episode 10

106. “The Great Escapist”

Season 8, Episode 21

Metatron’s first appearance doesn’t quite hint at the power grab he will soon make, instead helping the boys while Kevin tries to break free from Crowley.

107. “Book of the Damned” 

Season 10, Episode 18

108. “Regarding Dean”

Season 12, Episode 11

Dean’s hit with a spell that begins erasing his memory in an hour that’s both funny and, at times, devastating.

Season 1, Episode 16

110. “Form and Void” 

Season 11, Episode 2

When Sam is infected by the Darkness, we’re introduced to Billie, the reaper who claims she’ll be the one to take the Winchesters when their time comes.

111. “Everybody Loves a Clown”

Season 2, Episode 2

While the truth of the episode’s title might be dubious, this episode has a smart blend of drama in John’s funeral (or the closest thing to it) and a case that forces Sam and Dean to become employees at a circus. The mix of tones shouldn’t work, but, unsurprisingly, Supernatural makes it fun.

112. “No Exit”

Season 2, Episode 6

113. “Fallen Idols”

Season 5, Episode 5

Sam wrestles with Gandhi before decapitating Paris Hilton. Thanks for this, Supernatural.

114. “We Need to Talk About Kevin”

Season 5, Episode 6

This episode will always stand out for the introduction of Jesse, or as some refer to him, the Anti-Christ.

116. “Slumber Party”

Season 9, Episode 4

Any appearance by Charlie is a good one. Throw in the idea that Oz is a real place and Dorothy is actually a kickass hero and this episode leaves fans hoping that clicking their heels will bring them back to Oz just one more time.

117. “Weekend at Bobby’s”

Season 6, Episode 4

118. “Beat the Devil” 

Season 13, Episode 21

Even though Sam has died many times before, his mid-episode death here was still shocking and upsetting because of how relatively mundane it was.

120. “Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox”

Season 12, Episode 6

In this episode, Sheriff Jodi Mills, Sam and Dean’s surrogate mother, meets the newly resurrected Mary Winchester at the funeral of a fallen hunter.

Sam and Dean work a case that oddly feels like a game of Clue.

122. “Our Little World”

Season 11, Episode 6

123. “Hello, Cruel World”

Season 7, Episode 2

The Leviathan of it all hurts this episode’s credibility, but the return of Lucifer (in Sam’s visions) almost makes up for it.

124. “Devil May Care”

Season 9, Episode 2

125. “What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?”

Season 8, Episode 2

Who knew the supernatural could be so civilized as to hold an auction? Apparently they are in this episode, which also includes another appearance by the lesser-seen but just as fun to watch as her son, Mrs. Tran.

127. “Sam, Interrupted”

136. “Bad Boys”

Season 9, Episode 7

137. “As Time Goes By”

Season 8, Episode 12

138. “Hook Man”

Season 1, Episode 7

A classic example of the show’s early days as a mini-horror movie every week, “Hook Man” might not be the show at its best, but it helped defined the show’s monster roots.

139. “Jump the Shark”

Season 4, Episode 19

The episode lives up to its title, revealing that Sam and Dean aren’t the only Winchester brothers. But the family reunion isn’t exactly a fun time.

140. “Black”

Season 10, Episode 1

141. “The Curious Case of Dean Winchester”

Season 5, Episode 7

Dean turning into an old man thanks to a witchy poker game makes for a solid comedic hour that would’ve ranked higher if the competition weren’t so stiff.

142. “Scarecrow”

Season 1, Episode 11

143. “Hell House”

Season 1, Episode 17

The first appearance of the Ghostfacers isn’t something we’ll soon forget, but it’s not quite as classic as their other appearances.

Castiel meets his twin … sort of.

153. “The Rapture”

Season 10, Episode 17

155. “LOTUS”

Season 12, Episode 8

Season 13, Episode 18

161. “Hunteri Heroici”

Season 8, Episode 8

In a quasi-meta episode, deaths start occurring in a small town that have some strangely cartoon-like attributes. There are enough classic animation callbacks in the episode, including an actual 1-ton anvil, that you can just sense Wile E. Coyote waiting off screen for his cue.

162. “Tombstone”

163. “Season 7, Time for a Wedding!”

165. “Frontierland”

Season 6, Episode 18

166. “Everybody Hates Hitler”

177. “#THINMAN”

Season 9, Episode 15

The thinman isn’t the most intriguing villain, but the parallels between Ed and Harry’s relationship and Sam and Dean’s are way too good to ignore.

Season 6, Episode 5

The show finally takes a full-on shot at Twilight, showing the massive book and film franchise how exactly vampires are supposed to act.

179. “Alpha and Omega”
