After 15 years of saving people and hunting things, the Winchester boys are ready to hang up their holsters as Supernatural comes to an end with its series finale — Carry On on November 19, 2020. Since it’s pilot in 2005, the wayward sons, Sam and Dean Winchester, played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, had fans hooked onto their stories that are filled with family, humor, kindness, and love. While there are so many moments to choose from Supernatural’s 320 episodes, let’s take a look at the 5 most iconic moments from the show:
Pilot, Opening Scene (Season 1, Episode 1):
The very beginning of the show 15 years ago was in itself an instant hook with the tragic death of Mary Winchester. As Mary Winchester, the mom goes to check on baby Sam, she finds his dad already tending to the crying baby. Only to find out soon after that her husband has fallen asleep in front of the TV. Then who was the man holding her baby in the dark? Taking a sudden event that shaped the lives of all the Winchester men, the scene was a one of a kind plot twist.
Wishful Thinking, Teddy The Suicidal Bear (Season 4, Episode 8):
Humor isn’t usually expected of a thriller drama show like Supernatural, and yet, the creators do it with such ease that these scenes will leave you in splits. When Dean and Sam investigate a town where all wishes come true, they come across a giant teddy bear come to life. Surely, a little girl wished for her furry friend to be alive. But only for the giant teddy bear to be a crying, sobbing, suicidal mess. All wishes do come at a price. As the Winchester boys don the costume of ‘teddy bear’ doctors, the absurdity of the scene is hilarious.
Swan Song, Ending Scene (Season 5, Episode 22):
Dean and Sam have been through so much. With the apocalypse and the moment of absolute destruction coming to an end, Dean decides not to give up on his brother who is now possessed by Lucifer, The Devil. With an intense action sequence that is followed by Sam looking at Baby, their car, and realizing every moment of humanity and family he’s spent under the roof of that car, giving him the courage to take over his body, Swan Song’s ending will leave goosebumps on your arms.
Death’s Door, Bobby Singer Confronts His Father (Season 7, Episode 10):
It was a tough time for fans of Supernatural as everyone’s favourite cranky, rude, and lovable ghost hunter, Bobby Singer dies as a result of a bullet. But it did give the opportunity for an episode surrounding the beginnings of Bobby Singer and an insight into his life. We learn that his father was abusive and he would worry that he’d be the same kind of father. At a certain point in the episode, Singer stands up to his dad and fights back, delivering a monologue that was heartwrenching, to say the least. When his father calls him worthless, he says, “As fate would have it, I adopted two boys and they grew up great. They grew up heroes. So you can go to hell!!” In a moment of absolution, Bobby Singer calls Dean and Sam Winchester his sons, before bidding a final goodbye to his life.
Mystery Spot, Heat Of The Moment (Season 3, Episode 10):
Supernatural is guaranteed to be a lot of fun when The Trickster is involved. Picking a particular bone with the Winchester boys, The Trickster or as we later found out, Gabriel makes Sam Winchester live uncountable Tuesdays in a loop while he makes Dean die in uncountable ways every Tuesday. From the iconic Heat Of The Moment waking Sam up each morning with a building frustration of him not understanding what’s going on to Dean dying in hilarious ways right from eating some terrible food to having a piano fall on his head, Mystery Spot is an iconic episode with many iconic moments.
