The marathon will run until 8 p.m. ET, giving you one hour to eat, catch a cat nap, and/or shower, all of which you likely will not have done in the last 20 hours.

As a proponent of proper season premiere planning, I’m on board! I even like the lineup; it gives me one hour of sleep before work (5 a.m. to 6 a.m., not my favorite episode), commute time (Yay for at-desk TVs!), and the aforementioned hour to get home and prepare for amazingness on the CW.

Marathons just seem like the natural way to celebrate my favorite show’s return. But what about you, PopWatchers? How to you celebrate your favorite show’s return? Viewing party? Marathon? Live-blog?

Your response is awarded with this Supernatural promo (which features spoilers from episode 1 and 2):
