The Season Six premiere of the show Supernatural happens this Friday Sept. 24th, entering into a new era, Post-Apocalypse if you will. This is a short retrospective of my favourite highlights of the past five seasons:
Some of my Favourite Episodes:
-Caution these blurbs contain some spoilers-
Phantom Traveller: Having a demon that tried to crash airliners was an interesting twist to the plot that played on fears of air travel.
Home: The first thread in unravelling the Winchester family plot line.
Asylum: Looking back the fight scene in this episode could be prelude to the final showdown in season five.
Scarecrow: The first of several episode where they go head to head with pagan gods. It was also the introduction of Meg.
Faith: The first time we see the Reapers.
Hell House: The introduction of Harry Spangler and Ed Zeddmore.
In My Time of Dying: Sets up the entire Season Two in motion and subplots that lead into other seasons.
No Exit: What happens when serial killers don't die.
The Usual Suspects: With a clever guest star in Linda Blair and a great ghost story, it makes for a cool episode.
