Pilot – Season 1, Episode 1 - 15 Best Supernatural Episodes of All Time

So, while the Pilot may not be the best episode as it was, in retrospect, we have a sort of respect for it that will never fade. It began our fifteen-year journey that we never want to end. We meet the Winchesters. Not to mention, the ghost girl on the side of the road isn’t one we’ll soon forget.

All Hell Breaks Loose – Season 2, Episode 21 and 22 - 15 Best Supernatural Episodes of All Time

In this two-part episode, we see others who are “special like Sam” and they all have a show down. This marks the end of the yellow-eyed demon as we knew him. But even more impressive than that, it is the first time we see Sam die.

13. Bad Day at Black Rock – Season 3, Episode 3

Bad Day at Black Rock – Season 3, Episode 3 - 15 Best Supernatural Episodes of All Time

One of the best guest stars that has been on Supernatural is Bela, played by The Walking Dead’s Laura Cohan. In this episode, she is introduced in a fabulous way. She steals a rabbit’s foot that brings good luck…for a while. In the episode, Sam handles the foot, giving him good luck…until he loses it.

12. Mystery Spot – Season 3, Episode 11

Mystery Spot – Season 3, Episode 11 - 15 Best Supernatural Episodes of All Time

“Off to see the groundhog?” This story has been told many times, but has it ever been as hilarious as it was in this episode of Supernatural? Bill Murray did a fantastic job living the day over and over again, but so does Sam. The younger brother spends the entire episode trying to save Dean from his apparently inevitable demise. As funny as the episode is, it faces the question: what will life be like without Dean?

11. Lazarus Rising – Season 4, Episode 1

 Lazarus Rising – Season 4, Episode 1 - 15 Best Supernatural Episodes of All Time

The end of Season 3 is the end of Dean. Or so Sam thought. In reality, in the premiere of Season 4, he is raised from Hell. But by who? At this point (in the final season) it feels like Castiel has been with us since the beginning. But if you think back, you’ll remember this is the first time we see the angel. Now isn’t that an iconic moment?

10. Yellow Fever – Season 4, Episode 6 – 15 Best ‘Supernatural’ Episodes of All Time

Yellow Fever – Season 4, Episode 6 - 15 Best Supernatural Episodes of All Time

With so many memes coming out of this episode, even non-fans have probably heard of it. Dean is infected with something that gives him extreme anxiety. Anxiety that causes him to be deathly afraid of…well, everything. Jensen Ackles kills it with the screams in this one. You will be rolling on the floor laughing.

9. Changing Channels – Season 5, Episode 8

Changing Channels – Season 5, Episode 8 - 15 Best Supernatural Episodes of All Time

Every Trickster episode is a good time. This time, the Trickster places the brothers in all of their favorite shows, from a medical drama called Dr. Sexy M.D. to a silly game show. This whole scene is hilarious, but it gets serious later when the Trickster’s true identity is revealed. And no, we don’t mean Loki.

8. Dark Side of the Moon – Season 5, Episode 16

Dark Side of the Moon – Season 5, Episode 16 - 15 Best Supernatural Episodes of All Time

In Dark Side of the Moon, the brothers die…again. Angry that Sam started the apocalypse, hunters are after them. When they are found, they are immediately shot. This time, they go to Heaven, where they relive their best memories, and search for an angel, Joshua, who can speak directly to God. Or so they believed.
