15. Best Supernatural episodes: Wishful Thinking

An odd inclusion in this ranking of best Supernatural episodes, but hear us out. Season 4’s ‘Wishful Thinking’ sees the brothers investigate a purported ghost sighting in a small town, only to find that it’s not just a ghost, but also Bigfoot, and people winning at the lottery.

Turns out its none of those, yet all of them. A wishing well in the town is bringing people’s dreams into reality—the only problem is that the wishes go bad eventually.

Cue a depressed, alcoholic teddy bear, a dodgy sandwich, and a perverted invisible boy who steps in front of the wrong car.

There is so much humor in this episode that it couldn’t not be included on this list. Seeing Sam and Dean take on the unenviable roles of teddy bear doctors will always be a great moment from the show.

14. Best Supernatural episodes: The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo

When a show introduces a new character after seven seasons, fans can feel a bit put out. But Supernatural has consistently brought in characters that have become fan-favorites, leading to them recurring throughout the show.

Felicia Day’s Charlie Bradbury is undoubtedly on top of that list, and her introduction is a no-brainer for one of the best Supernatural episodes.

Season 7 of the show struggled in many ways but adding Charlie to the show was not one of them. A geeky tech genius and hacker, Charlie was hilarious and adorable, a perfect foil for the often-serious Winchester brothers.

The highlight of this episode was when Dean had to teach Charlie how to flirt with a man—something she wasn’t experienced with because she’s gay. This is still one of the greatest highlights of the show.

13. Best Supernatural episodes: Fan Fiction

Not many TV shows make it past 100 episodes, so when Supernatural reached its 200th, that was an achievement to celebrate.

The show took a different approach to the milestone, sending the boys to a girls’ school to investigate a series of disappearances. To their surprise, the drama group was putting on a play. The subject: Supernatural!

Through the play, the episode celebrated some of the greatest moments from the show, include ‘Swan Song’, and even the legacy of Destiel—Dean/ Castiel.

The ‘Single Man Tear’ song paid homage to Dean’s very specific method of crying on the show. And anyone who didn’t shed a single man tear when listening to the episode’s moving rendition of ‘Carry on My Wayward Son’ probably needs to rewatch ‘Fan Fiction’, because it is undoubtedly one of the best Supernatural episodes.
