Get ready Winchester fans, Supernatural Season 12 is right around the corner.
With Supernatural Season 11 Episode 23 ending the battle with the Darkness, Sam getting shot and Mary making a surprise return, the next part of Sam and Dean's journey is sure to be an interesting.
But before we dive into the present, let's take a look at the road so far and highlight the best episode from each of Supernatural's 11 seasons.
With so many to choose from, what are your favorites?
Supernatural Season 1 Episode 1
It's tough to not pick the pilot, Supernatural Season 1 Episode 1, because it introduced us to Sam and Dean in the first place. Combining the creepy scares, the spot on humor and the mysteries of their mother and Jessica’s death, all while pushing them to find their missing father was a great way to get their (and fans') Supernatural journey started.
Supernatural Season 2 Episode 12
Supernatural Season 2 Episode 12, "Nightshifter," was an episode that introduced a scary and clever monster that was the shapeshifter and the start of the FBI hunt after the brothers. Plus, who doesn't love the bad ass end escape sequence set to "Renegade" by Styx?
Supernatural Season 3 Episode 13
Supernatural Season 3 Episode 13, "Jus in Bello," was the demon assault on the sheriff's office to get at Sam and Dean. It was an intense and action-packed hour that included Agent Henrikson's last stand, seeing Lilith go full white-eyes and Dean trying to impart some comedy with a well timed Bob Marley lyric.
Supernatural Season 4 Episode 1
Dean is back from the dead and the introduction of fan favorite and now series regular, Castiel? Supernatural Season 4 Episode 1, "Lazarus Rising," was an exciting kick-off that introduced the angels and the epic reveal of Castiel's angel wings in the barn. The mythology was just beginning to ramp up the angel/demon storyline. And wow, was it an awesome direction for the series.
Supernatural Season 5 Episode 22
Supernatural Season 5 Episode 22 was show creator Eric Kripke's fantastic exit in "Swan Song." The history of Sam and Dean was on full display. Dean took a beating to try and stop his brother and the apocalypse. Sam sacrificed himself. And a saga closed one door before cracking open the next phase of the Winchester journey.
Supernatural Season 5 Episode 8
What? Another Season 5 choice? I can't help it, but Supernatural Season 5 Episode 8, "Changing Channels," is one of my all time favorites. The humor, the clever use of television shows such as Grey's Anatomy and CSI, even herpes commercials, in addition to revealing that the trickster is actually Gabriel? This hit so many marks for a great episode that it was as much standalone as it was part of the bigger mythology.
