Welcome back to Humor Nation. Supernatural has ended, but its legacy will live on forever. It is one of the best, if not the best, fantasy horror drama shows of all time. The show has over 300 episodes under its banner, which could keep any fan busy. Even if you are someone who has finished the entire show, it is always fun to rewatch the show over again. Every fan has his/her personal preference when it comes to their favorite SPN episodes. Some would prefer episodes from Kripke’s arc because of its serious tone, while some would choose the episodes from later seasons. But one thing is for sure: nearly all the Supernatural episodes are very entertaining. As we cannot go around ranking the episodes based on personal preference of mine or yours, a more objective way of ranking would be using the IMDB ratings. IMDB is a popular platform that has the listing of all the movies and shows, and there’s also a rating available at IMDB that allows us to rank the content.
Note- Some episodes have similar ratings, but the number of votes differ. We have given preference to the episode with the higher rating along with most number of votes.
So Let’s Take A Look At 10 Best Episodes Of Supernatural According To Their IMDB Ratings
10. DON’T CALL ME SHURLEY (Season 11, Episode 20 – 9.4)
Season 11 definitely has a couple of amazing episodes, such as “Baby” and “Don’t Call Me Shurley.” After the events of Season 5, it became clear that Chuck is God, but a lot wasn’t addressed since then. The discussion between Chuck and Metatron in this episode offers lots of insights and information, allowing us to grasp Chuck’s perspective on humanity. Meanwhile, everyone is going mad due to the black fog released by Amara.
9. BABY (Season 11, Episode 4 – 9.4)
This episode tells the tale of Sam and Winchester fighting monsters from the perspective of the Impala. Over time, the Impala has become a popular character on the show. So, it’s no surprise that there would be an episode completely focused on this character. The Impala isn’t just a vehicle or a prop but a meaningful character that symbolizes the bond of the brothers and the epic family business.
8. ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE: PART 2 (Season 2, Episode 22 – 9.4)
This episode is the first-season finale that featured the song ‘Carry On.’ It is also the first episode to showcase the initial resurrection of Sam Winchester, who met his demise at the hands of Jack in the previous episode. Dean is heartbroken, and in his desperation, he turns to a crossroad demon to strike a deal. While the deal to bring Sam back in exchange for his soul successfully resurrects Sam, it also sets a chain of events that would change everything. The gates of hell are also opened, allowing many demons to enter the realm of the living. John Winchester makes a cameo and helps Dean in eliminating Azazel for good.
7. LAZARUS RISING (Season 4, Episode 1 – 9.4)
Season 3 ended with Dean’s agonizing scream in hell. There were huge expectations with Season 4, and it delivered on them. Season 4 not only saw the return of Dean but also the arrival of the angel Castiel, who would end up becoming one of the most beloved characters on the show. Castiel became the first angel to appear on-screen as, prior to it, we had only seen demons and other monsters on the show. The group enlisted the help of Bobby’s psychic friend Pamela to contact Castiel, but the angel’s true form turned out to be too overwhelming for her.
6. FAN FICTION (Season 10, Episode 5 – 9.4)
“Fan Fiction” revolves around a simple case of a disappearance, but things aren’t as simple as they look. Sam and Dean find that disappearances are happening around a high school play focused on their lives, based on the books written by Chuck. “Fan Fiction” is like a love letter to the fandom from the writers and the cast. The episode promotes the idea that every fan is entitled to have their ideas and opinions, even if they differ from the popular opinions. The episode references several ships that are popular among the fandom on social media.
5. MYSTERY SPOT (Season 3, Episode 11 – 9.4)
There are all sorts of episodes in Supernatural. Some has humor, some has action, while many has emotional horror. This is an episode that perfectly embodies everything that makes Supernatural so special. What also makes this episode pretty great is there is immense character development featured in this episode as the Trickster forces Sam to let go of Dean because it’s his weakness. The episode sees Sam getting trapped in a groundhog day where he witnesses Dean meeting his demise every day in a bizarre fashion. No matter what Sam does, he cannot prevent the demise of Dean. Not only is Sam scarred after experiencing the demise of Dean and going on without him, but all these experiences surely mark a shift in his persona moving forward.
